Military gives bonuses only to same-sex couples

The U.S. military says it has a new benefit for same-sex couples who are in the Armed Services and want to get “married.”
And it’s a taxpayer-funded perk available only to same-sex duos, not heterosexual couples.

It’s government-paid leave to travel to a state that recognizes same-sex “marriage.”

In an email today, Tony Perkins of Family Research Council explained what’s going on.
“A Supreme Court ruling earlier this year said that the federal government must give equal treatment to same-sex couples who have legally ‘married.’ But now the Pentagon wants to give a special, taxpayer-funded bonus to such couples – including a benefit that is not even available to heterosexual couples.”
 
He said it was a Department of Defense announcement on Aug. 13 that said a service member who wants to enter a same-sex “marriage,” but is posted more than 100 miles from a state that allows same-sex “marriages,” will be granted seven days of extra paid leave (10 days if posted outside the continental United States) just to travel to their wedding.

As I've said before, this has never been about equal rights.  Its always been about money and preferential treatment.  And the Secular Progressives made this happen.
