"I really don't mind your posts, they appear researched, referenced, linked and legible."
Thank you. I try not to hurl insults and having pissing matches. If I am wrong based on data, I admit it and move on. Most of what people post on here is based on opinion - and thus is neither right nor wrong most of the time.
"That's all coolness, however I wonder what you meant by "seems entirely justified". Clearly the land of the free, home of the brave has adopted it's own rules and rid itself of the shackles of organized religion, or are you intimating the military adopts religious practice over scientific?"
I think this is the point where there is legitimate debate. Psychology is not a pure science. It is not a pseudo-science but it cannot be weighed against things like Newtonian physics or mathematics. Because of this, we have a big issue with trends rather than truths. With the psychology field being vastly over represented by people with liberal beliefs (I would guess 95%+), we will have to deal with the issue of bias. This reveals itself in the scandal regarding how such a high % of psychology studies are non-reproducible. As such, I tend to take a much more measured approach in accepting any reporting from psychology academia. Given the importance of the military, I would not simply adopt whatever the trend is today in psychology academia.

The sad reality is that we do unconstitutional acts in the US on a daily basis. At the end of the day, there will always be a weighing of law vs. acceptance by the populace. In the current day, homosexuality has won. It is legal, accepted, and normalized. Transgender is trailing a bit but I would suspect this process will be complete in just a few short years for average Americans (religious communities not so much). I don't know if this is progress or just the acceptance of a reality for country. Like I said above, I expect the coming battleground to be over pedophilia. I see this as a red line that Americans will not accept crossing. With academia already pushing for de-criminalization, I see a big fight brewing.
