The latest is that most of what Akin was trying to cram into the bill has been gutted. Gone is the outright discrimination he wanted against same sex couples by prohibiting them from marrying on base and all that is left is a conscience clause that says service members cannot be punished for their beliefs, but those beliefs don't excuse you from the UCMJ.
I know it's highly unlikely that anyone but an ignorant bigot would pull such a scam, but what's to stop anyone from whining about anything and causing chaos? Why couldn't a Muslim soldier declare that it's against his religious conscience to serve with Jews and demand that he be reassigned to a different unit? Or the reverse?

Maybe it's just required that the people that push through hate-based legislation NEVER stop to think that hate-based laws can almost always be used AGAINST them as well as for them?

Am I really the only one that see this as a problem??
