Sue Davis discusses Clinton's six month hold on plans to lift the military ban on gay service members with two veterans on opposite sides of the issue: Dr. Charles Neilson, a Vietnam veteran from the Marines, and Lee Marsters, a WWII veteran from the Navy. Second segment focuses on women and positions of religious authority in light of the Church of England lifting its ban on women priests while the Catholic Church maintains theirs. Davis interviews Rabbi Judith Abrams of Congregation Beth El in Missouri City, Rev. Helen Havens, Director of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, and Rev. Henrietta Sullivan-Mack, Assistant Pastor of Evangelist Chapel AME Church. Includes report from Patricia Gras on an increase in the desire for women to hold positions of religious authority.
