A "pro-family" group is up in arms at the possibility the partner of a gay serviceman or servicewoman might be buried at Arlington National Cemetery. The American Family Association, a non-profit "pro-family" group dedicated to strengthening the "moral foundations of American culture," has responded to departing Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta's decision to extend benefits to gay men and women openly serving in the military and their families. The AFA recently launched a petition against what they consider the "most disturbing" aspect of this progress: allowing homosexual partners to be buried on the "hallowed grounds" of Arlington National Cemetery.
