Early this month, the U.S. Supreme Court failed to put an end to the discriminatory “Don’t ask, Don’t Tell” policy, according to Time magazine.
A group of gay-friendly Republicans asked the highest court in the land to bar the outdated policy, but the group was met with an icy “no”.
“With the likelihood of Congress repealing ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ fading with each passing day, judicial relief continues to be perhaps the most viable avenue for ending this unconstitutional policy,” said lawyer Dan Woods, a representative for the Republican group. “We and Log Cabin Republicans will continue to fight on to protect the constitutional rights of all Americans who want to serve in our military without regard to their sexual orientation.”
The Log Cabin Republicans call themselves a grassroots gay and lesbian organization that advocates equal rights for all Americans.
For now it seems the Supreme Court is content to join Congress and President Obama’s twiddling thumbs approach to ending “Don’t ask, Don’t tell.”
