September marks nuptial season across part of the American military as gay and lesbian troops cash in new, Pentagon-granted leaves to tie the knot.

Scores of service members are draining their savings just to pay for airfare, hotels and rental cars — common, logistical necessities for obtaining a marriage certificate in one of the 13 states where same-sex marriage is legal, advocates say.

Do they also get a waiver from getting killed in Syria? Or will they be too busy with impending nuptials?

“Scores” means multiples of 20.

Not “Hundreds” or “Thousands”.

Homosexuality is an extreme minority among humans.

And homosexual monogamy among gay men is reportedly low.

Ah, yes. The US military. For many years the only damned institution left that I had any respect for. Just a memory now.

Pretty sure that for pervs, "marriage" has nothing to do with monogamy. Think $$$$ -- well, and the in-your-face flaunting of being of perv.

I feel sorry for those people who lost their business for refusing to bake a cake for the faggots.

I would have baked them a cake and frosted it with something special. They would have loved it.

Welcome to Ubama’s sodomized, feminized military. Who wouldn’t be proud?
Congratulations, America. Nice president.

"scores" could mean two for the SCM.....they want us to all feel warm and fuzzy inside over these people....

oh, and they had to scrape up every penny including their bingo winnings just to fly to Cali to get married...

but its not about the benefits...its about the love.....right....

wait til their little queens all want their part of the pension....

I have zero respect for the military....I will never again advise young people to go into the military, which I used to do regularly....

no self respecting semi moral person should be in the military...

Are heterosexuals being afforded the same benefit?

If not - then this is not equality and cannot be allowed.
