Sodomy a crime? LOL,I guess you missed that Supreme court decision almost 40 years ago(1973) that declared all sodomy laws in all 50 states Unconstitutional! Besides there are far more of US heterosexuals planking our girlfriends and wives from behind than all gays put together! Um....Ok,what ever you say buddy,I guess a good 34% of the population will be going to prison then? LOL

Really, then how come the gay activists are tying to repeal a ban in the military on sodomy bestiality? Are they thinking about straights, gays or dogs?

im guessing you dont know many gay folks...
babaly already know some, but just dont know their gay yet.
Maybe, you need a better class of people. Unfortunately, for you, gays and studies show that the gay community has the highest crime rate, highest domestic violence, higher rate of sexism and racism, high suicide and 80% of all AIDS cases. But, I guess you know the 5 good gays, since you want us to believe your bubble.

and romney is just advertising more war.

ryan said so much last week at the debate.

I dont take mikes sentiment on libya seriously because of the timing.

Idont think he(or you) was the least bit sorry when the US trampled over everybodies human rights in the region...back in 01 and 03.

I dont support any military action at all 10000 miles away...

Iraq looked like hitleresque rape to the rest of the world, that is why they didnt join us. smart.

none of it was needed, and it all could have been avoided.

war is the last option, and bush violated that sacred pact that the military is to be used a last option, not a first strike initiative....

especially since we found out saddam DIDNT have a bomb.

just pathetic!!

then bush left the economy in wreckage.

bad republican, no whitehouse!!!

In the first place it has nothing to do with the topic of the thread! In the second place your statement if false! In the third place this is why Prop 8 is and will always be Unconstitutional in the state of California and ruled so by 2 courts now! Marriage equality is about to be the law of the land in California very soon again! And here is why! Don't you just hate it when that pesky OL Constitution gets in your way! Try refuting the link or STFU and do try to stay ON topic please! LOL
Why Prop 8 is Unconstitutional
www.afer.org/our-work/our-arguments/
Emotions are one thing, but your lies are another. Since, Nov 2008 Prop 8 has not only been constitutional on a federal level, it is the California state constitution. All you have is about to, but sorry, Justice Scalia tried to warn and advise you, marriage equality which means no same sex marriage, is about to be the law of the land in the US.

Why Prop 8 is constitutional?
Because Prop 8 is the California constitution. So,what about on the federal level, well as the Supreme Court says, the gays need 3/4 states or 38 to change the US constitution.

it is sad to see a women as a bigot...

all the people in my life have different strengths and weaknesses..

but youll have to validate that claim on gay crime, because it is BS.......... pathetic!!

No, you will not ever understand what civil rights are, which is why gays are more racist against blacks than found in the general population. Gays still have no blacks allowed gay bars, gay bath houses and gay private clubs. You freaks have burned or fire bombed over 80 black churches, and in Jan 2009 you even disrupted Ebeneezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. You know, MLK's own church.

Try this, I get my info straight from the CDC. Try it. Yeah, how often lesbians are bigots and hate blacks and men. It was you who claimed some correlation of goodness to gays, based on some alleged gays you know. Sorry, I deal with real records, gay on gay crimes. Check this one out, and check all your lies at the gay bar. Matthew Shepard was killed by his gay lover, McKinney, for drugs and money. Yes, 20/20 did the real story in 2004 and he prosecutor confirmed. But, you gays wanted to hate, so you abused Matthews memory for a hate crime bill based on a gay murderer.

Sorry, little girl, do not project your menial mind onto me. I, not you, have many friends of many backgrounds, and we do not have to agree, which is the case with some of my gay friends, and some of the gays are opposed to your monocentric view of gays.

Why do you hate gays? The ban is called USC.925.Art.125 and it was actually gay groups and Obama who equated the ban on sodomy people and sodomy animals with gay rights. Nov. and Dec. 2011. Do some research and stop your bigotry and hate.

By the way, you are either 12 or illiterate, so which is it.

I am against marijuana period and illegal immigration, if you must know. The operative word is illegal, and yes, I do have friends who are here illegally.

In other words you don't want to talk about it. Who cares if Obama neglected a gay man in Libya. Yes he was raped, but he was already dead, so i guess that doesn't count for you. My second statement was true.

Whether or not your story is true, it isn't beyond reality to think that it is. OTOH, it isn't a valid argument against a policy that doesn't examine members of the military through a looking glass that attempts to be a screen for sexual preference. There are plenty of stories involving sexual impropriety directed toward young female troops by men in the armed forces. That it occurs betweem men in the role of superior against women in subordinate military ranks is no argument against heterosexuality. Why should sane people accept the counterpart as evidence against homosexualit?

We have a choice? I'm still looking for the difference.

At least Romney said the words- "State Right" a few times during the debate, thought I feel he had to hold back a chuckle each time he did so.

So I guess he has that going for him?

The only issue/concern I see with the tossing of DADT is the effect it will have on housing.

We know that homosexuals have served honorably for, well, forever. So one is hard pressed to find any reason why one should be allowed to serve openly.

The only part which concerned me was the housing of troops. In Basic there are many troops housed in open bays together. In that situation we separate male from female for obvious reasons. We do the same in the dormitories and tents.

This was simple when gender was the only issue, as sexual orientation was assumed- albeit foolishly. The answer isn't as simple when we are dealing with homosexuality. How should they be segregated? Or should they?

I don't really know the answer to this question, and one could say since there have been no issues, publicly at least, that it is a non-issue. But I am not so sure that the lack of issues doesn't have more to do with homosexuals self-employing their own DADT policy?

But I do agree that sexual harassment occurs in both the heterosexual and homosexual community, and is not an argument either for or against this policy. But it did seem simpler when the answer was simply the separation of the sexes, which could be employed to at least attempt to quell and head off the issue before it occurred.
