Oklahoma has become the fourth state to deny processing benefits for same-sex military couples; the state joins those other bastions of progress and intellect (I jest): Texas, Mississippi and Louisiana.
Military couples in those states can still apply for such rights on federal military bases but that is not necessarily feasible in some of these states that are quite large . This begs the question since when do Governors of certain states get to ignore Federal law? The answer is apparently when you are a bigot and find it convenient to appeal to your homophobic base. I suppose it goes without saying that the Governors of these four states are all Republicans.
