Obama now giving homosexual partners of U.S. military personnel MORE benefits than the spouses of heterosexuals in the military. Should recruiter motto be changed from "Uncle Sam wants you" to "It PAYS to be gay?"

    NO [comment as you wish].
    A Declaration of Domestic Partnership generally includes the same or greater requirements (at least in terms of financial matters) as marriage. To lie on the form would be illegal.

    But hey, if you want to avoid the possibility of gays getting benefits unmarried, there's a simple solution: allow gay marriage.

    That needs to end here and now. No hetrosexual should ever be punished
    for being what's moral, upright, and good. Especially military people.

    Hell it pays to be anything but military. I'm underpaid, my healthcare sucks (but its free right) and my doctors don't care, there's tons of drama, and our benefits are always in danger of being taken away. It should be sign that contact and we own your ass...

    Thanks for the typical Sodacon post. It's nice to see you people already
    working on getting the next democrat elected.

    Your posts say exactly the same thing as the posters does. Benefits would be extended to partners of gays, but only to spouses of heterosexuals.
  • Fallout gregory... 2013/02/12 14:31:42
    When our soldiers get equal rights and the privilege to marry their life
    partners this will be a non-issue.

    All I see is equal rights for everyone. If this is the only way to get earned
    benefits to loved ones, than it's righteous.

    Typical of you people to not want to extend benefits to the great Americans
    that give their lives for our freedom. You'd rather try and force your
    theocratical archaic ideas on a what appears to be a free country.

    Peace to all
  • gregory... Fallout 2013/02/12 15:19:35
    And this rant has what to do with the facts? If gays want to serve in the military fine. But they must accept the drawbacks of he same. It s no more fair for partners of gays to get benefits of spouses, than it would be for a soldier to go out and pick up a random girl off of the street and give them benefits. It is not a question of sexual orientation, it is a question of fairness.
    But, let's say for a moment it is about sexual orientation, and gays could get married.
    Then just like every other married soldier, as a couple without kids they would look for their own housing off base. If as a person who could find someone of their sex attractive, then if they went into the head with a member of their own sex, they could face the same sexual harassment charges as a male soldier that went into the female head. If they are married then they would face the same rules governing conduct as any other spouse, and be removed from base if they are disruptive of the soldiers mission or deployment status. This means that if they are having anal sex and the soldier prolapses, then they soldier is out of the military for willful destruction of military property.

    You people are all about big government when it's pushing
    things like DOMA.

    If you want live in a theocracy move to the middle east.

    We moved past blacks being able to marry white. It's just a matter
    of time before we move past this current ignorance, with regards
    to same sex marriage.

    Sexual preference should have nothing to do with their benefits...everybody should get the same damn thing.

    According to the article it says that gays just have to sign a paper saying that they are partners. I would get that paper and have the heterosexual boyfriend and girlfriend sign it and dare them to refuse benefits to nongays. Yes, I would make a federal case out of it.

    Nobody should gain or loose rights because of sexual preference.
    That's the best I can muster up at the moment since I don't agree with homosexuality.
    I don't mean to say the people themselves should be treated any differently. I just don't agree with their sexual life.

    I have issues because of my religious up bringing. The many references against homosexuality. And the obvious fact that God's design is male and female.
    And I don't find the act settling. I really struggle with this because my sister is gay.
    She is highly educated. Very kind and smart. Great six figure job. Travels. Loved by everybody. Yet I can't get past that one aspect of her life. I love her so much. I have worried the world would be cruel to her. I don't know what to do. I clearly see gay people are valuable, loving, contributor's to humanity. I just feel repelled about this area of their lives. I also understand that sin is sin. And everybody is committing a healthy dose of it everyday. So I don't delude myself into thinking I'm in any better shape with God.

    I know everybody doesn't agree with my religion. I believe in the Holy Trinity. I think all sins are equally wicked. This is my cross to bear in life.
    I won't parade in the street for gay rights but I won't block them either.

    What do you think about gay marriage?
  • Zepland S123 2013/02/12 05:26:53
    I'm glad you asked. I think all couples seeking legal relationships (unity) should sign a contract at their county court office. A legal contract that unites the two in legal unity and partnership. Taking the place of the religious ceremony of marriage. This contract would replace the marriage certificate.
    People who's religion requires marriage can have a marriage ceremony performed by their minister afterward. But to be recognized as a partnership in the legal sense you will need a legal contract of unity. Having taken religion out of the equation all types of couples qualify for a legal contract of unity and partnership.
  • S123 Zepland 2013/02/15 22:12:35
    I think that sounds like a good solution. Then if a gay couple wanted to have wedding after they signed the contract, there would be nothing to stop them (as long as they could find a church or synagogue that approves of gay marriage) because it wouldn’t be a legal issue.
  • Zepland S123 2013/02/15 23:52:57
    It's like separating church and state.
