Congress Has Failed, but the ACLU Will Keep Fighting

(Also posted on Pam's House Blend and Huffington Post)

Congress' failure to repeal the shameful "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy is a devastating loss to the gay and lesbian service members who put their lives on the line for this country every day — and for Americans everywhere who believe in fairness and equality.

Rest assured that the ACLU will not give up on this fight. We are 100 percent committed to ending "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," and will do everything we can to bring about its demise.

Watch this video of my colleague James Esseks, head of the ACLU's LGBT Project, as he speaks about the ACLU's commitment to fighting DADT:

Any public support, sanction or endorsement of homosexuality is just plain sick and wrong!

Why is it "plain sick and wrong?"

By removing DADT, the public is becoming neutral - it is not an endorsement. Go back to civics class.
