Saw this: http://www.1010wins.com/-All-Options-on-the-Table-/6832014 and thought of the final bit and this thread.

"He also reiterated his position that the military's Don't Ask Don't Tell policy on gay service members should be changed because it forces them to lie.

University President Lee Bollinger said that ending the policy would remove a major stumbling block to welcoming the Reserve Officer Training Corps back to the Columbia campus.

The ROTC was banned from the campus in 1969 in the wake of the Vietnam War and student protests. Bollinger has said that current resistance to having an on-campus ROTC program stems mostly from opposition to Don't Ask Don't Tell and from adherence to the school's anti-discrimination guidelines."

FYI Quakers have had gay commitment ceremonies and marriages for many many years. We just haven't come to consensus on it across the great diversity of our churches until recently.

Tasmanian Parliament backs same sex marriage. Unfortunately the move is little more than symbolic - for the state to legislate to allow same-sex marriage there are some tricky constitutional issues to worked out; the federal marriage act defines marriage as between a man and a woman, but some experts have advised that it should be possible for the states to legislate to allow it.

This thread is now 8 years old (as of last week), with a total of 7 state on-board and counting (oh and a new military policy).

(oh and a new military policy).

Which I find regrettable. The purpose of DADT was to allow everyone to serve in the military while protecting U.S. taxpayers against $20 million "Oh, he called me a fag!" emotional distress lawsuits. With the lifting of DADT, everytime somebody calls someone a fag taxpayers are going to be on the hook for damages, with much of the taxpayer loot going to cheesy trial lawyers. Whatever the ethical arguments for lifting DADT (and I admit there are some), let's not forget the primary reason for it is to fatten lawyers wishing to feast on the taxpayers.

Because calling someone a hetero is never a cause for a $20 million emotional distress lawsuit but calling someone a homo would be, society has a legitimate case for requesting gays to keep quiet on their orientation while serving. Otherwise, too many would be trying to highlight and advertise their gayness over and over again, just waiting for some other soldier to make an offensive remark so they can rush on down to the courthouse and cash in on the taxpayers. The financial incentives to engage in this fraud are just overwhelming, and it takes just a few bad apples to make all military gays look bad in the process.

But here comes the retort--"Not to worry, Glen, as the lawsuits pile up the military will institute more and more sensitivity training!" But there are only 24 hours in a day, and that sensitivity training will have to come out of their military/combat training, which will result in more fatalities on the field, including those of gays you liberals profess to care so much about. What good is being more loved if you're dead as a result?

Air Force recruits need to spend their time learning how to fly fighter jets, not writing book reports on Heather has Two Mommies. We owe them that. Far from being "stinking thinking", Senator Santorum had it right when he said "Sex is not an issue. It should not be an issue. Leave it alone. Keep it to yourself whether you are heterosexual or homosexual."

What a crock of [bleep!]. Drill sergeants have been calling recruits weak little cry baby girls since long before Sun Tzu. There won't be any "emotional distress" lawsuits. Keep in mind the military isn't subjected to civil or criminal law, they answer to military law.

It's just over 9 years since I started this thread started (when MA became the first state).

We're now about a state away from 25% of all US states allowing same sex marriage. Hopefully the next 25% comes faster.
