You all know my opinions on homosexuality (and if you don’t, see A Compromise on Gay Marriage), so it shouldn’t surprise you that I agree with this Post editorial. Whatever your or my personal opinions on the morality of homosexual activity, precluding somebody from service to their country on the basis of sexual orientation is stupid. It is especially so in a time of war.
I join the Post in their call for an end to the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy on homosexuality. Being openly gay does not make somebody any less of a patriot, or any less an honorable member of the United States armed forces.
