I don't think that we should force this on the men and women who are actively defending this country. The truth is that open gays in the military CAN cause friction and damage morale. So I am happy the Supreme Court hasn't gotten involved yet. I think we need to let the troops vote on the issue and whatever they decide should become law. I also believe that soldiers in active combat should get to vote first.. and each of their votes counts as three votes. But that's another post for another day!
