    Associated PressSince the lifting two months ago of a longstanding U.S. ban on gays serving openly in the military, U.S. Marines across the globe have adapted smoothly and embraced the change, says their top officer, Gen. James F. Amos, who previously had argued against repealing the ban during wartime.


    Right-wing homophobic fear mongerers hardest hit.

    I want all of the fucking naysayers (there are a few from this site too) to go on record after the seamless integration of this policy and eat shit. Er, crow.

    And then, once marriage equality becomes national, same buffet.

    If you must keep up these lame attempts at being 'outrageously controversial', at least try to be relevant.

    American military personnel have been serving along side out gay soldiers for years. Every NATO member (except Turkey) allows out gay men and woman to enlist. Of course the repeal of DADT would have about the same impact as a silent fart.

    Actually JP - he isn't. Not at all. And whatever your reasons for your statements - he is not souless.

    You are on here often enough to know that.
