Judges Philips: Hero of the Week!

This past week, Judge Phillips of CA ruled that the federal "Don't Ask Don't Tell" rule of the military service is unconstitutional.

From the

“The 'don’t ask, don’t tell' act infringes the fundamental rights of United States service members in many ways,” she wrote. “In order to justify the encroachment on these rights, defendants faced the burden at trial of showing the 'don’t ask, don’t tell' act was necessary to significantly further the government’s important interests in military readiness and unit cohesion. Defendants failed to meet that burden.”

The rule, she wrote in an 86-page opinion, has a “direct and deleterious effect” on the armed services.

Imagine that!

Because most Protestant churches are not top-down authority--at least in principle--we await the masses to figure out justice and right-judgments.
