Since the federal government recognizes their legal marriage, I suspect they will have a nice lawsuit pending.

Easy solution: Tell the chaplains to leave their homophobia off of the base.

Why isn't The Obamaniac doing something about this ? He's Commander-In-Chief.

Or is he too busy watching OBAMACARE crash and burn ?

Women, who have sexual desire for other girls and especially young girls don't belong in marriage enhancement, or the military... they belong in mental hospitals.

Both the Catholics and the Baptist and Lord knows who else have told their chaplains, that there services are unavailable to those of the non-heterosexual set and this just another salvo in the battle with the right wing chaplaincy corp. The DoD is going to have to let them know that this kind of thing ain't happening. They get their veto over faith specific services only, not over any services they have to offer as a chaplain to all military personnel.

There's another kerfuffle going on at USAFA ("Bring Me Men", I used to love the Air Force debate tournament, they gave you one for the weekend), they got themselves a member of NARTH on the payroll. He's actually been there for about 4 years, but they made the mistake of promoting him. Somebody noticed and now they have a Rosebush problem.

There will always be hiccups, some worse than others, but at least we're still heading in the right direction.

The only thing gays have to offer any concept of marriage enrichment is interrupting other's serious efforts with pornography and displaying/demonstrating various S&M sexual torture devices.

And sadly, the only thing you have to offer is this and nothing more. Thanks for sharing, but that is the sort of behavior which should be kept in a closet. I hope your "God" forgives you.

And just how is your marriage going? You have a whole lot of time that could be spent on "family time", rather than continuously posting on a GAY thread. But then again, your wife is very "understanding".

Prove to us that there is no market for hetero porn and we might listen to you.

As for torture devices, reading your posts is cruel and unusual torture for the rest of us.

We have donated one of our 'devices' for a statue in front of the Elizabethtown, Kentucky City Hall

Frankly I hope they go after the Chaplain and the Southern Baptists, of course SBC will hide behind their bible.

The DOD will resolve these issues as they come up.

We all knew there would be bumps along the road to full equality, especially when dealing with religion & the military.
