Yet again, the Religious Right has wasted American time, money and oxygen lying and complaining about our society becoming more open and accepting, in this case with the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, only to have absolutely nothing they warned of come true:

James F. Amos, who previously had argued against repealing the ban during wartime.
“I’m very pleased with how it has gone,” Amos said in an Associated Press interview during a week-long trip that included four days in Afghanistan, where he held more than a dozen town hall-style meetings with Marines of virtually every rank. He was asked about a wide range of issues, from his view of the Marine Corps’ future to more mundane matters such as why he recently decided to stop allowing Marines to wear their uniform with the sleeves rolled up.
