Assuming that the Uniform Code of Military Justice still has a provision barring adultery (which the article implies), chances are that it only refers to “carnal knowledge” or “sexual intercourse” (as is the case in most adultery laws in jurisdictions that had separate sodomy statutes, since sodomy, whether adulterous or otherwise, was already proscribed), and thus a married soldier who has sexual intercourse with someone other than his or her spouse would violate the Code (and could be prosecuted) but one who has anal or oral sex with someone other than his or her spouse would not violate any provision in the Code.
Even more worrisome, rape laws in
jurisdictions with a separate sodomy statute were usually limited to forcible “sexual intercourse” or to “sexual intercourse” with someone below the age of consent, which excluded non-consensual sodomy from its reach, since all sodomy (consensual or not) was banned by the separate sodomy statute. Congress needs to make damn sure that repealing the prohibition on sodomy from the Uniform Code of Military Justice does not mean that a soldier would be violating the Code when he rapes a woman through vaginal penetration but not through anal penetration (sorry to be so graphic, but rape laws have traditionally banned only the former, since the latter was banned by sodomy statutes).
And removing the ban on bestiality? They couldn’t have given Rick Santorum a greater gift: Santorum was widely ridiculed by the media, and ended up losing his Senate seat, because he pointed out that the U.S. Supreme Court’s creation of a theretofore unknown “constitutional right” to homosexual sodomy would open the door to striking down laws banning bestiality. That the Senate struck down the military ban on bestiality when it rescinded the prohibition on sodomy is too rich.
People voting for this are doing what the American people want. Polls showed 75 percent favored homosexuality in the armed forces. It’s all in the name of “sexual freedom”, a major consideration to our little voters.

If only the perverted, pedophiles could get children into the Armed forces.......that’s next!
Can anyone access the Republicrats AND the DemocRATs who voted for this evil?
The Senate vote was 93-7. Democrats Harkin (IA), Merkley & Wyden (OR) joined Socialist Bernie Sanders (VT) in voting AGAINST this bill. What part of the story is being left out?
Access? Shouldn’t be hard with 97 from which to pick!
Dean Heller also???
I can’t wait until Monday AM & I call his ofice. They better have something to tell me!!!!!
93 Senators have been BAA-AA-AA-AA-AA-AA-AA-AA-AA-AA-AA-AAAAD boys!
You’ll have to tie up the senators and gag them. The only way to move them out is with their kicking and screaming all the way...
Ok, when does the secession start?
Maybe somebody should s*d*mize them, to give them a taste of what they just voted for.
If he did, maybe he has a farm animal stashed away in his basement...
The problem is that the definition of “rape” in the UCMC includes only “sexual intercourse.” http://usmilitary.about.com/library/milinfo/ucmj/blart-120.htm
I hope there’s a separate crime that includes forcible sodomy, such as “sexual assault” or something, or else the repeal of sodomy as a crime in the UCMC will mean that forcible sodomy won’t be a crime in the military.
Additionally, since it’s okay to commit barracks sodomy it’s likewise permissible to ingest fecal matter. Part of the perversion that homosexuals call lovemaking includes shoving their faces up a partners ass.
The first time a legitimate soldier sees something like the coupling of two men in HIS barracks he’ll beat the fecal matter out of them!
For those whose votes allow this evil nothing short of tar, feathers and banishment is good enough! They have proved that the entire Congress is so coated with evil that it must be abolished!
Muslims have always been an inventive and civilized people who never got enough credit for the contributions they have made to society.
In the year 1425 they invented the condom using the lower intestine of the sheep.
Not until 1857 were any alterations made to this invention when the British decided to remove the lower intestine from the animal.
How can any government that codifies homosexual acts in the military have ANY moral authority to govern? Even Jim Demint voted for this. To Hell with all of them, It is time for the Civil War.
So did Florida’s own Marco Rubio.
Agreed. I’ll fight under the Stars and Bars, while the other side wimps under the flag they desecrated by wiping their ass on it!
93 - 7
I'll be right there with you.
