Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Why do I say 'gotta be christian', well this did happen at Fort Bragg, near the coast of bible belt state of North Carolina bible thumpers who've continually shown their total intolerance of many existing in the society and communities around them, if you buy into the same bible teachings they say they strictly adhere as written that jesus taught, and from an elitist group in the hierarchy  of our military forces.

I could be wrong, about the christian thing, but doubt it.

Which probably took the members of out of the running for the Fort Bragg 'Spouse of the Year' award for the many who voted.

Spouses club relents, says lesbian Army wife can be 'full member'

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

25 January 2013 - Hours after same-sex Army wife Ashley Broadway was named Fort Bragg's 2013 “spouse of the year,” the on-base spouses club — that has for two months rebuffed Broadway's bid to join — fully reversed course and invited her "to become a full member," according to emails sent to NBC News and Broadway.

The decision comes one week after the Association of Bragg Officers' Spouses (ABOS) extended Broadway — who is married to Army Lt. Col. Heather Mack — a "special guest membership," an invitation she declined and called "extremely demeaning."

"After further reviewing the (club's) constitution, by-laws and internal procedures, the ABOS Board felt that in order to immediately support all military Officer spouses who are eligible for ABOS membership a more inclusive definition of spouse was needed. Therefore, any Spouse of an active duty commissioned or warrant Officer with a valid marriage certificate from any state or district in the United States is eligible for ABOS membership," the club's board said in a statement. read more>>>

Would be some what interesting, doubt on base, to see what the ministers sermons will be this sunday in regards to all this. This being North Carolina there will be at least a few who either mention that this shouldn't have happened, the award and the quick relenting on membership, or whole sermons from the pulpits will be dedicated to the issue and showing the intolerance as they often do probably with clapping of support from the pews!

Also would be interesting on how many spouses will either quit the club or stop participating thus showing their total intolerance and bringing about questions as to the officers they're married to ideologies in this day and age of No More 'Don't Ask Don't Tell' and now women being accepted into the combat roles, Officially, they've already been a part of in many ways and especially in these two recent wars of choice.
