    RIVERSIDE, Calif. -- A federal judge in Southern California has declared the U.S. military's ban on openly gay service members unconstitutional.
    U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips on Thursday granted a request for an injunction halting the government's "don't ask, don't tell" policy for gays in the military.
    Phillips says the policy doesn't help military readiness and instead has a "direct and deleterious effect" on the armed services.
    The lawsuit was the biggest legal test of the law in recent years and came amid promises by President Barack Obama that he will work to repeal the policy.
    Government lawyers argued Phillips lacked the authority to issue a nationwide injunction and the issue should be decided by Congress.
    The injunction was sought by the Log Cabin Republicans, a 19,000-member group that includes current and former military members

    I personally think it's about damn time. I don't see how restricting a group of people for no other reason then whom they have sex and have relationships with, and who are otherwise qualified and willing to serve, makes any sense.

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
