It's a threat to national security because people like the American Family Association will try to bl0w it up.

Here's the thing.

Normalizing gay folks into society and making gay not be any kind of a big deal any more actually strengthens national security.

Back in the day honey traps for gay politicians, government workers and upper echelon military folk were used by various intelligence outfits in order to blackmail the individuals into handing over intelligence.

In a country where it's okay to be gay the threat to tell the world someone is gay becomes essentially meaningless which in turn makes the country stronger.

The AFA couldn't be more wrong here.

/And I couldn't be less surprised by that fact.

I remember arguing this very point with people during the debate over gays serving in the military.

Them: Allowing gays to serve means they'll compromise security by being susceptible to blackmail and extortion!
Me: That only makes sense if being gay is stigmatized and viewed as an issue, the more it's accepted the less need for secrecy and false pretences.
Them: Yeah but gays are icky!

I can't think of a single rational reason to give a shiat about whether somebody is gay or not.  If a person wants to serve in the military, what does them being attracted to people with the same genitals they have really matter?

The only reasons it tends to matter is because irrational people have a problem with it.

To be fair, you don't really have to post or say that.  It can pretty much just be assumed to be in effect at all times for any issue on which the organization has issued a formal stance.

Albeit apparently your spouse can be buried at Arlington with you, so at least I learned something this time.

The only reason the braying yentas of the American Family Association have time to address this issue is because their husbands are on yet ANOTHER overnight golfing trip with their friend Rodrigo. At least he always comes back in a good mood and has stopped pestering for sex so there's more time to Mommyblog!

Irrational people can change and become rational.

Fundamentalists can't change.  The basic motivating factor is redemption.  Their efforts are for the "grace and glory of God" and all the brownie points that go along with it, and it tallies up over time.  For them there is no greater motivating factor to do what they do, especially if it means acting like an arse because it serves God.  For them it's martyrdom to be the "bad person" in the eyes of the public.  They see themselves as the ones being hauled up on the cross and thus have a closer connection to their God.

The Sky-Bully never weighs in to tell them to knock it off so it continues.  At best we can hope for a generational die-off for them to mellow while we move on to the next Big Thing.

Because some ignorant bronze-age guy didn't like gays, so no one else can either.

Interesting that they limited it to same-sex spouses, which still leaves out people who live in states without legally endorsed gay marriage.

/ I say give everybody an optional second plot to use for whomever they want.  Husband, wife, favorite math teacher... who cares?

Why? Why should they be dragged into the 21st century just so they can muck it up with their hate? Why can't society move forward while they stay behind and fade away with the past?

That's the joke!  I love the term "assless chaps", the redundancy tickles me.

The AFA are just a bunch of pathetic white xtians who are upset because they can no longer subjugate peoples of color nor impose their erroneous religious edicts on the country. Many of them know that their holy babble is wrong about so many things in reality but they cannot admit that at the risk of invalidating their whole religion.

Oh, shut the fark up, you hateful bigots. Gay soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines are risking their lives to defend the nation, a duty you cowards refuse to do. And they're doing it even though you stupid ass mongoloids are stopping the rest of us from recognizing them as the equal citizens that they deserve to be.

If there is a Hell like you believe, God will certainly cast you there for all eternity for turning your back on his Golden Rule.

DNRTA, but I thought the rules for burial @ Arlington were well established.

http://arlingtoncemetery.net/eligib.htm

(g) The spouse, widow or widower, minor child and, at the discretion of the Secretary of the Army

So it's a judgement call anyway.  Let the man do his job, let's move on.

So assless, chaps implies a bare bottom save a codpiece or similar.  nice.
