Pretty harsh. I'm hoping the ACLU makes some progress here. Of course the worse problem is DADT, which we should ask Rep SHS to end right away if she cares as much about military readiness as she says....
ACLU says Rapid City police got lesbian airman tossed out of military (RC Journal, March 12)
Newsome was given an honorable discharge early this year; she was a nine-year military veteran who planned to make it a career, Doody said. Newsome's discharge came after the police officers notified the Air Force that she was married to another woman.
Officers serving an out-of-state fugitive warrant on Newsome's spouse, Cheryl Hutson, allegedly noticed an Iowa marriage certificate. According to the ACLU's complaint, Hutson was questioned about the marriage certificate, and that information was included in the police report.

The Revised Common Lectionary readings for this Sunday includes the well-known Parable of the Prodigal Son. Most of us have been prodigals at some point in our spiritual journeys.

Add our most treasured American institutions, who need to continue to complete the American story by including everyone and honoring their inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Why is it so hard to simply honor the dignity of every person?
