I am a lover of freedom, and equality under the law. Equality does not mean that others are more equal than anyone else. This is why I oppose all policies and laws that promote discrimination and segregation. Therefore, it is with profound pride that I read today that the policy that has discriminated against homosexuals in the military has finally been removed.
To be discriminated against because of a lifestyle choice is at the core of irrational intolerance. Does it really make a difference in how someone serves their country, does their job, flies an airplane, on who they choose to take in to their private bedroom, or which God they worship, or how?
It is good to see the country is finally ready to get past this. I applaud it, and welcome the change.
