    Let’s say I am in the military and I say to my buddy that I am against homosexuality. Let’s say that someone overheard that comment and reported that to their immediate supervisor who in turn called the person who made the homosexual comment in to be reprimanded ( so much for Unit Cohesion) for breaking the new U.S. Military’s new pro-homosexual policy of equal treatment and are repremanded and maybe even get permanent marks against you on your record. Question: Is this Homosexual Fascism or not? And if it is, then it is unconstitutional. Besides, tell me all of you pro-homosexuality folks, which nation that ever existed was based up preferential treatment of homosexuality and its many behaviors?

    Thanks for listening, 777denny

But a few, like University of California School of Law Professor Erwin Chemerinsky, believe the vote could even be 6 to 3, with Chief Justice John Roberts on board.
