Congress Overturns Military Ban of Gays Serving Openly
Proverbs 14:34 "Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a disgrace to any people."
WASHINGTON -- In a landmark vote, the Senate on Saturday ended the Clinton-era ban on gays serving openly in the military, marking a major triumph for President Obama, liberals and the gay community.
The final vote to end the Pentagon's 1993 "don't ask, don't tell" policy was 65-31, drawing support from eight Republicans.
