    Doncha know, if the military swings evangelical rightwing, they can create Armageddon.

    Our economy is a house of cards. Don't breathe.

      Dogemperor has covered this subject extensively.

      There is serious trouble in the USAF, moderate trouble in the Army.  The Navy tends to be slightly better off with occasional hot spots.  The Marines seem to be the least affected by this at the present time, with a couple of exceptions that have made news.  

      And IMHO the way to deal with this problem will be

      a) when Obama allows gay service members to serve honestly, the influx of gay warriors will drive some of the most batshit religious extremists out, and

      b) the ones who claim to be following a "higher authority" can be discharged on the basis that doing so conflicts with their oath of service: in effect treated the same way as conscientious objectors, but involuntarily so.
