I was pleased to see not too much hoopla over DADT becoming history. I guess all the vitriol lost some steam in the face of so many blank stares from people who wonder what the hell the big deal is. It seems that most of the people who object to it are non-military, a few retired military, and church representatives within the military. I asked Lance Criminal (in his new gray belt) what scuttlebutt says, do the rank and file really care? (As if they don't know they've been serving alongside gays the whole time...) His answer:
"We got over that a while ago."
Well said, young man, well said. Do you suppose the military has finally come to the end of the list of patriotic, competent, honorable, qualified candidates to exclude? Now, if only Churchianity had so much courage.
