Next year, Republicans take back control of the House and additional Senate seats, severely undercutting the chances that any Democratic priority will advance come January..." (SOURCE)
Personally, I say if you are willing to die for this country...you should be able to tell anything you like.
And for those that have stated that they strongly believe that homosexuality is a sin... Are you currently serving alongside liars, adulterers, thieves and blasphemers?
