More from Cenk Uygur

In the same post linked below, Uygur makes a side point:

I love the idea of someone saying Alexander the Great can't lead his empire because he's cheating on his wife (by the way, doesn't Alexander's bisexuality single-handedly destroy the idea that gays can't serve in the military).

That doesn't mean that we at the Egg will suddenly begin supporting adultery, in uniform or out, or expect our red-state readers to chill out on homosexuality.  We don't, they won't.  But let's be honest about why, shall we?  It's not about "unit cohesion."  It's about our moral convictions, which are fundamentally religious -- and must therefore be treated very carefully by a nation dedicated to secularism and pluralism.
