Judge orders military to stop enforcing don't ask, don't tell

A federal judge ordered that the U.S. military stop enforcing the don't ask, don't tell policy on Tuesday.

Judge Virginia Phillips ordered the military "immediately to suspend and discontinue any investigation, or discharge, separation, or other proceeding, that may have been commenced under the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"."

The judge had previously ruled that the policy regarding gays serving in the military violated service members Fifth Amendment rights but delayed issuing the injunction.

    This is just one more way the government and gay leaders in cahoots with them lure gays out into the open. Scroll up a few posts and reason on this matter. Dou you people really think congress increased prison funding by such huge amounts these past years to house the tens of thousands of "terrorists" they planned on arresting? Those "homeland security" prisons are for Americans who don't tow the line. You gays and registered marijuanna users...inform yourselves. Find out about the "victory act" and "noachide laws" as they pertain to yOU.

    Christians demanding that gay pass as straight is as impertinent as gays demanding that Christians pass as Mormons.

    Dogs have been part of the US Military since it's inception. Are you really that thick or that far in the closet?

    The military has always been under supervision by civilians and the civilian court system. It is not independent.
