Gays are one step closer to being able to serve openly in the military, and not be fired because of their sexuality. Congress passed the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t tell by a vote of 250-175.I don’t know what your views are on homosexuality, but according to the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
I don’t believe you’re excluded from equality because of your sexual preferences. So this is an important step in making sure people are treated as human first. You may or may not agree with homosexuality for whatever reasons, but hopefully you agree that if someone is willing to fight for our rights, they shouldn’t have to hide or lie about who they are. Especially when they’re life is involved.
Now on to the Senate for the real battle…
