A similar one was posted yesterday.

And it is insidious.

Maybe in the eyes of man this is right but in the eyes of God this is wrong. I am on God’s side.

The headline doesn’t indicate any previous postings. Perhaps it was one from a source other than the infamous AP/MSN.

This posting is about Condi Rice. What has this to do with the lesbian wedding? And why butcher the post when I limited the article to under 300 words?

Additionally this is NOT the first time an AP photograph was posted with an article.

Is this still "America"????

I think not....we now coddle Illegals (Criminals), sex deviates, anti-Christian zealots, etc.

There is nothing "Sacred" about this Country, anymore, and it is only getting worse.

Don't get a job; jobs are for fools....just let someone else work, and you get paid to sit on your ass, use drugs, pursue "Alternative" lifestyles, etc.

Taxpayers pick up the tab for it all, and no one is ready to just Nuke Washington, and start with a U.S. Constitution, as written.

These homos are like Moslems. They enter a sacrosanct place and defile, then claim it as their own. It’s purposeful, like the Great Leap Forward in the PDR.

These two old women should have stayed away from West Point and kept their mouths shut. The big guy is apparently the groom and the skinny crippled woman is the bride.

Broadcasting their sin is absolutely ridiculous.

************
I think we have gone well beyond insidious by now. Secular liberalism and its reliance on government coercion is simply incompatible with our values and deeply held principles. The wide disparity in beliefs is something that cannot be accomodated or “worked out”. Something’s gotta give.

As the old saying goes, if you don’t stand for something you’ll fall for everything. Conservatives are going to have to consider some very serious options. Just sayin...

You are right on the money.
In so many ways “something’s gotta give”.
Whether it is morally or economically it is all boiling up.
What happens from there is anyone’s guess.
I’m just trying to do right by The Lord, prepare the best I can for my family, and pray for God’s mercy and protection.

What do you expect from a military academy that was temporarily commanded by the two-bit treasonous betrayer, Benedict Arnold.

History comes home to roost.

As commander of the fortifications at West Point, Benedict Arnold committed his infamous act of treason, attempting to sell the fort to the British

Nothing that happens will surprise me in a country that just gave a radical leftist a second term in the White House. One advantage of being older is that I won’t be around much longer to see this once great country go Tango Uniform.

A wedding requires a bride and a groom.
A husband and a wife.

They can call it whatever they wish, but I will continue teaching my children the definition of marriage.

They were in the military BEFORE don’t ask, don’t tell, therefore they were in the US military ILLEGALLY and should now be charged and prosecuted. Same thing as an illegal Mexican being in the states 20 years, then all the sudden turning himself in. Prosecutes the bastards! And that worthless queer-loving Episcopalian “preacher”, who calls himself a chaplain should be prosecuted for allowing this travesty in a military chapel. The DOMA is still alive and well in the US military. Kick this God-hating creep to the curb. He is not fit to preach the gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He has mocked and defiled His Holy name!

And look at the look on the cadets’ faces...how proud they are...the whole corps of cadets must be brainwashed by now. Did they have trouble finding volunteers to form the sword arch? (doubt it...)

What's precious to the LGBT community has another name in the real world — perversion. I understand that the bestiality, pedophile, and necrophiliac crowd are going to be clamoring for more and more “rights”. Degenerate is too kind a word to describe them.

The sad thing about this is that just making a comment about gay marriage can be considered a hate crime.

West Point celebrates sexual deviancy. Great. This country sure has gone to hell. The commie lib freaks and weirdos have totally infested ALL of our institutions. To the military’s credit, they held out longer than most of the others.

Just out of curiosity, are there any religions where homosexuality is accepted?

Leviticus and Romans are clear enough. What changed? Did I miss something? Where does it say the original "advice" isn't valid any more and now it's anything goes anywhere anytime?

Several of what passed at one time as main stream Christian religions perform homosexual and lesbian marriages. The chaplain who ‘married’ these two old bags is an Episcopal priest and that denomination has suffered a serious flight problem.

United Church of Christ is another. I’m certain there are more fallen denominations.

As long as the majority of the Americans are functionally stupid and elect complete asses to Congress and state offices our nation will continue to drift into even more evil. These weasels have placed sodomites atop a pedestal and conveniently forget what homosexuality begets: illness, suicide and even murders. Homosexuals have committed the large majority of serial killings worldwide.

The degenerate that continues to occupy the White Hut loves homosexuals and lesbians because he continues to edict that they be hired for key positions. He personally never had a girl friend, but was taught by a raging homosexual communist who fed him reefers and whisky. Besides this scum is no doubt an alien who was never granted citizenship and uses a dead man’s social security number. His presence as the nation’s leader goes unchallenged by members of the House and Senate.

The commandant of West Point had to grant permission for this travesty to occur.

Not surprising since the Joint Chiefs of Staff are largely political generals who owe their souls to the pervert-in-chief who parks his feet atop an antique desk in the oval orifice.

Yes, the photograph is real. I'm a graduate of West Point. Sue Fulton was my classmate. That really is the cadet chapel and those really are cadets and army officers in the photograph.

The article stated the cadet chapel was the center of a cadet's spiritual life. What a crock of bs. Most cadets never attend a service there. I never did my entire time at West Point because I'm not Protestant.

My previous comments stand even though the moderator saw fit to delete my entire post because the photograph from ass press or PMSNBC was copyrighted.

I fully expect this nation to go to war with itself and the military to be used against us. Therfore, I am all for the faggots, women in combat, affirmative actions hires, bangbangers, illegal aliens, etc. being those in service as we will not want the best, brightest and most capable against us.

Wow

Appreciate the reply, the photo was an absolutely disgusting spectacle, and the fact that the Mod had to delete it evidence of the censorship the left has instituted via the legal process.

THAT photo should be catalyst for the reset.

Used to be the the CPUSA and their homosexual COMINTERN buddies would meet in secret.

Now they are in your face, large and in charge, from the WH to the local apparatchik at the county commission.

Any attempt to suppress domestic communism is now branded as hate speech or domestic terrorism.

The Republicans are useless.

It’s time to start developing a strategy to cripple the marxists, and it must be done totally outside of the electoral process through acts of civil disobedience and counter propaganda, with sympathetic State Governors and legislators assisting in the process.

All else fails, the military can fire the scumbags wholesale in all three branches, provisional military government for six months, then new elections (no incumbents need apply) only taxpayers and veterans enfranchised, all amendments repealed except the Bill of Rights, dueling legalized for for members of the House and Senate

Leftism is inextricably bound with hedonism, atheism, sexual perversion and just plain nastiness of every kind. Plus they want to destroy (OUR) military, and empower Communist and Moslem countries. If the leftists are not defeated, one way or another, then stormy times are ahead. Even if they achieve every goal for their "utopia" of social justice and all that garbage, the collapse will be inevitable. No civilization can survive under leftist domination. Especially when at least half of the population are opposed to moral degeneracy such as described here, as well as the rest of the leftist hell-on-earth platform.
