"sodom and gamora", Gracie? If you are going to invoke the Bible, it usually helps if you offer better evidence that you might have actually read it at some point, like knowing that you are misspelling Gomorrah. Our country will only go to hell if we listen to closed-minded bigots like you.

Of course it is. Great publicity to promote it across the board. It's like shoving $h!t in someones face I suppose. Good job.
Did you serve because you say you're gay?
Did you become a teacher because you say you're gay?
Are you a banker cus you say you are gay?
I fool around on my wife so I should receive 'special' recognition for it.
I sleep with many women and I should recieve 'special' recognition.
I sleep with my sister so I should receive 'special' recognition.
Though two men cannot conceive a child the state should provide us with one.
Hmmmm. Interesting point of view. I don't see it as special recognition, just another step towards equality. Sort of like this is.

Leon Panetta, the departing secretary of defense, took an important step on Monday to improve treatment of gay and lesbian military personnel and their families.

He announced a limited expansion of benefits for same-sex partners, like access to military commissaries, gyms and various family-support programs on bases and posts. Same-sex partners will now be eligible for identification cards to allow them on base. Gay couples who are both in the military will be entitled to the same consideration for joint-duty assignments as other couples.

Granting other benefits like burial rights at national cemeteries and eligibility for on-base family housing are said to remain under consideration.

Veterans Affairs allows burial for same-sex couple in Oregon

(CNN)-- In what's believed to be the first case of its kind, the same-sex spouse of a member of the military will be buried in a national cemetery.

"I am deeply grateful to my country for honoring and respecting my years of service and my relationship with Nancy, the love of my life," said retired Lt. Col. Linda Campbell, a veteran.

"Willamette National Cemetery is a beautiful, peaceful place. Knowing that Nancy and I can join my parents on that hallowed ground is a source of great comfort and healing," she said.

Nancy Lynchild, Campbell's partner, died in December of metastatic cancer.

Hence 9/11.
Wow. If ignorance is bliss you must be permanently delirious in a constant state of ecstasy.

Did this person serve in the military because they were gay? Do straight men serve in the military because they are straight? Do blacks serve in the military because they are black? According to your argument of stereotypes and perversions yes. Why should said person receive more recognition than any other soldier? Hmmmmmm?
Why do they fight?

And you need a dictionary.
