    is there a compelling interest to discriminate? As I understand it, that is the position the courts take on denial of, or repression of, activities of suspect persons by governmental entities. The question one asks is whether there is a compelling interest in NOT allowing gays to serve. Feel free to define that compelling interest. I have trouble defining it. Military cohesion appears to be the interest the anti-gay crowd takes. It's kind of hard to see that interest given that they're already serving alongside straight servicemen/women.

      That person is saying that discriminating against gay people is the same as discriminating against convicted child molesters, felons and apparently his or her troubled daughter.
