If the world's best trained, most disciplined military in the world can find a quick, efficient, and successful way to implement policies like this, why can't those states who still refuse to allow same sex marriage? Has anyone noticed units aren't falling into disarray? There are no military protests about these changes? None of the republican claims of irreversable harm to the military have come to  Read More...

So state legislatures are dictating military marriage benefits to same sex civil unions. How is this defined in our constitution? Sounds illegal to me.

My marriage now more equal with DOMA, Sec 3 gone!

Try to keep up with the times. DOMA, section 3 was ruled to be Unconstitutional which means that the Federal government does not have a choice but to recognize legal marriages of same sex couples.

To their credit they are not even attempting to resist this ruling because they actually believe it is high time that LGBT people be treated equally!

I know, I know. It is politics not necessarily whether it is the most correct way. Americans have freedoms but certainly there is plenty of room for correctness without impinging on individual belief systems.

And by the way, where do you get "state legislators" out of this article? This is about the Pentagon - you know Federal?
09:12 PM on 08/14/2013
Not being flip. The state legislatures legislate and define the marriage licensing process, I think. I do not understand why a legal opinion cannot be rendered all inclusive of all states. Personally, not narrowly, I believe this is a religious issue along with a civil rights issue. Same sex civil unions/partnerships should equate to marriage, but not the same as marriage. So licensing and defined benefits need to be consistent.

SHH! Don't confuse bigots with facts.

You have to love the conservatives so miserable that members of our military are getting the benefits they earned and deserve.

Cons love the flag but hate Americans.

More word-salad gibberish from Baggerstan.

Then you should be in full support of same sex couples receiving equal benefits as opposite sex couples.
08:58 PM on 08/14/2013
They'll claim they love America and her people. Based on their actions though, they're clearly working with a much, much narrower definition of those terms.

Why would they? Gays have been serving in the military since its inception, and sharing the same showers as their straight counterparts.

Try the truth
Reality has a well known liberal bias

For those of you complaining. It's mind boggling, that you expect these service members to put their lives in harms way defending our country, but you expect them to do it, knowing their loved ones wouldn't be taken care of, if you had your way? Seriously?

It's always been a troubling irony that the same folks who show up at Tea party style rallies ranting about freedom and "wanting their country back" would likely be the same crowd that would zealously defend the unconstitutional so called Defense of Marriage Act. The same people who loudly proclaim their patriotism then has the gall to rob gay service members of their relationship recognition and security. I can only speak for myself, but there are NOT many things more patently un-American than that!
