SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A Republican gay rights group is again asking a federal appeals court to immediately lift the ban on gays serving openly in the U.S. armed forces.

Lawyers for Log Cabin Republicans told the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in legal papers filed Tuesday that Congress still could derail the ongoing effort to rescind the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

Several Republican lawmakers have proposed amendments to a defense bill a House committee is set to consider Wednesday that would slow repeal.

A 9th Circuit panel is already considering the government’s appeal of an order by a California trial judge barring enforcement of the ban. Log Cabin wants the panel to remove its hold on the order or put the case on a fast track.

    Equal Rights for every Human Being.

    Gay’s should be treated equal on every level.

    Oh, and I too am also straight.

    Who am I to judge. And as far as the military goes, I would rather have my buddy, who is gay, watching my back than some numb-nut, who’s trigger happy.

  3. I still agree.....but! says:

    Did I miss the announcement that science found that gays couldn’t love their country,fight for their brothers and sisters, think for themselves and all the while be happy and proud to do it? I am straight, but come on people human is human, love is love, it’s all good!

    It’s so nice to hear from the morally bankrupt. See above. Gays need lots of therapy.

    1. Looks like Mike could do with some Therapy... says:

      It’s people like you that need to just go away.

      Seems like you have some issues to work out

    Some people don’t follow God laws. I am sinner not doubt! However, you do your best in life, admit your sins and come to Christ! It’s that easy, give it a try it will change you forever! You are either for for God or against him. Not all will enter into his kingdom. The bible says that man shall not lie with man, no debate. If you choose too reject Christ’s word that’s between you and God. I pray for our gay brother and sisters. Yes, I would encourage you to come to Christ.

    You are not born gay, period end of sentence! Whether you’re a Republican or Democrat it does not matter being gay is a mental is disorder. Show me any empirical scientific evidence that your born gay? You can’t! Even top scientist can’t support this. We don’t need gays defending America! To do the right thing takes courage and boldness to stand up for the word of God! God Bless you despite the negative comments that will likely follow. I love you all and GOD will open his heart to you!

    I think gays in the military would be ok. They could bring their interior decorating gayism skills into the drab military barracks. They might even end up on an episode of HGTV.
