WASHINGTON, Sept. 10 /Christian Newswire/ -- A federal judge in California has ruled that the military's ban on homosexuals openly serving in the military is unconstitutional.
Penny Nance, CEO of Concerned Women for America said, "It should not be activist judges who determine what is best for our troops. This judge's ruling shows a blatant disregard for Congress and the military. It should only be at the discretion of Congress and those in military positions who are trained and competent to decide what is in the best interest of the military and what regulations are best for the readiness of our troops."
Shari Rendall, Director of Legislation and Public Policy for CWA, said, "It is appalling that during a time when this country is fighting two wars, that a hostile social agenda would distract from the most important thing we could give our troops- support in a time when military readiness should be priority."
