  1. Typical Republicans obsessing over keeping all aspects of DADT!

    When will this horrible, bigoted and outdated DADT policy ever end for my husband?

    I am proud of my military husband!

    1. I believe the repeal of DADT will be effective as of September 20, 2011.

      1. Jock S. Trap 8 Sep 2011, 9:02am

        And lets hope it stays that way.

    2. Jock S. Trap 8 Sep 2011, 9:01am

      Good for you. It is a shame that many of the leaving figures in power aren’t as proud. They should hang their heads in shame.

  2. Justice Department not defending DOMA – but it defends DADT??

    Something is wrong with the Obama administration!!!!

  3. Is in it funny that Republicans are defending a law named DADT – that by the way a Democrat named Bill Clinton signed into law in 1993. 18 years of hell for gays in the military all because of a Democrat who cheated on his wife Hillary Clinton with a Jewish woman who could not get a stain out – quoted by Robin Williams

    Something is wrong here!

      clinton was brow beaten by the repubs. I think by the time DADT came up the repubs controlled congress. I am not certain on that one.

      Republicans – the kind of people who ran france until the french revolution – kings tied to the church now known as the church of the endless hidden molestation of children all over the world..

      Someone got it right about the church and the kings long ago in france.
      “Men will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest”

      Denis Dierodot (? sp) lived from the early 1700s till 1784)

      Just prelace priests with RATZInger and his gang

      And google [country name] – catholic church molestation

  4. Funny how Log Cabin will support making DADT unconstitutional which is a good thing to do but will support a Presidential candidate who wants to repeal the repeal and hates gay rights.

      yeh – teh USA is AFU

  5. Paul. Clinton had no choice to sign it because the republicans would have filibustered any passage of repeal. It was either allow gays to serve without disclosing, or face a permanent ban altogether. Notice repeal is happening under the Democrats, not the republicans and I might add, only 8 republicans voted for repeal while almost all democrats did.

    Meanwhile, republicans cheat on their spouses while espousing the sanctity of marriage, one man one woman and family values while condemning same-sex marriage. One of them, David Vitter, solicited two prostitutes from the floor of the House on his mobile phone, won re-election and received a standing ovation from his colleagues in the chamber.

      Sanctity of marriage – well when the USA had the battle to end laws banning inter-racial marriage, the conservatives said

      “Protect the sancttity of the white race” BTW white in their mind prob meant Aryan.

      List of 15 (not 10) TOP outed bigots mostly if not all republicans……….

      (actually now top 15)

  6. The ninth court of appeals and has to take action along with the log cabins and the entire lgbt and sldn and glbt and all human rights equal rights forums and lawyers and jugdes , you cannot allow racist and bigots who are already part of the criminal society, for insight and starting riots violent gangs wars, and has been behing children suicides and other abuses of horrors because of their hate bigootry, instigated by their hate evil religions, not good orranizations hate satanic religions occults, that harrass other, you must not allow them to ever bring racism and bigoty wrongful abuses and laws back into play to start up those abuses ever again , you must take serious actions against any politicaian and official and even president who tries to harm a military soldier and abuse them and their rights every again, these soldier has enough worry with trying to defend this nation and others against terrroiest, and even the lives of these low down biggoted familileis here in the nation,

  7. you get rid of all the evil abuses, all of them like i said, you stop the evil take down the doma, the nom and dadt, and never revisit them again, the same abuses from the past, abraham lincon to them and johnson, stop the racism and abusing the women and minorities they have the same rights as you, stop wronging these the monster you wicked people are, and change the wrongs you have unjustly and unconstitutionally have brought , on right the wrong of the abuse and oppressed and repressed asked the racist bigots , judges if they would care who saved their lives if it was in danger, they would grab hold to a gay person in a secaond, then tu;rn around after they save their lives and try and destroy their families, like the military;, this shameful white house and nation, of evil and ill will to others, monsters out of control, the bigots are the only thing in the states constantly starting trouble like the rapest and murders and pedehopiles most of them are, and look at their hipocricy

  8. When ever you need to make a quick case that is accurate log cabins, and lgbt and aclu, you take the faces and names of all of these republican hipocrites , like philip hinkle and senator craig, and purtor reco senatator taking nude pictu;res to send to the gay sight to pick up men and soliciting under age boys in hotels marriots while their wives are waiting for them ask the nation would they; wants these people as their senators, or presidents, the same one who talk bad and harrass the gay people, in the day time , but solicite the gay men under age boys for sex themselves in the nightime after they leaave their biggoted offices , the tied into hate religions, like ted haggard go figure same evils, same hippocracy

  9. For god’s sake let these warriors be free to be who they are, after all they are giving their lives for freedom for all and they need to be free to be who they are too.

    Dan Choi is now in court defending himself for protesting in front of the White House, they never make a person they arrest go to court for protesting in front of the White House, they are using Dan to make an example of what they can do to gays who protest and I say more gays need to protest the fact they are doing this to Dan, a gay Warrior for the US Military who was willing to give his life for his countries freedom while he is yet denied his freedom to be an openly gay American in the US Military. No justice no peace. Come on America prove to the world you are free and not just taking over countries to make the people there your slaves too.

  10. Pursuing this and obtaining a constitutional decision is a very wise move. It’s just sad that it’s a Reupblican group that’ll get the credit. Anywho, once the court rules it unconstitutional there is no way DADT is ever coming back. Those stupid republicans (Bachmann, Santorum etc) will be left with nothing to stand on and look even sillier than they already do.

    1. Miguel Sanchez 2 Sep 2011, 1:56pm

      Right on man. There are a few Republicans out there with a brain. Bachman and her homophobic are outright disgraces. I wish they would both find a hole in crawl into it and disappear.

  11. Homosexuality should be kept out of any organization which involves people working at close quarters ab=nd sharing facilities. it is a dangerouys, disease ridden life style

    1. “it is a dangerouys, disease ridden life style”

      So is religion. How about you go spread your filth in a setting more suiting to your lower IQ?

      1. Jock S. Trap 8 Sep 2011, 9:04am

        Religion more so. It is the one single most dangerous thing in this world.

        It damages, kills, maims, tortures, starves, makes homeless…. don’t see the LGBTQI community doing that.

  12. Jock S. Trap 8 Sep 2011, 9:00am

    Disgusting and typical of the republicans who show no respect for their own troops they fully expect to protect them.
