Gay Marine Pops the Question in the White House
NEWSMAX ^ | Wednesday, 19 Dec 2012 03:15 AM | Stephen Feller

Posted on 12/19/2012 2:17:07 AM PST by maddog55

A U.S. Marine Corps captain proposed to his partner in front of a Christmas tree at the White House Saturday in the first gay engagement to happen there.

Capt. Matthew Phelps asked his boyfriend Ben Schock to marry him in the grand foyer of the White House, on the six-month anniversary of their first date, which also was at the White House, reported ABC News.

“Our first date was to the White House, so I wanted to propose to him there,” Phelps told ABC News. “When I got invited to the holiday tour — six months to the day that we had been there on our first date — it was way too much of a coincidence to pass up.”

Although Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell was repealed — so Phelps can openly acknowledge the relationship — the Defense of Marriage Act is still in effect and the federal government will not officially acknowledge the marriage.

This means that Schock is not eligible for health insurance from the Corps, and when Phelps is deployed next year, his partner will not have access to their home on the Marine base.

“Our first date was to the White House”

Ah, yes. Obama’s new America.

He did a speech somewhere saying this is what it would come to.

The military was America’s last noble institution. To the Left, it was essential to soil it, as they have done to everything else that was once decent and good in our once republic.

That is disgusting but somehow also appropriate for the White House we have today.

It’s not the country we once knew. Nor will it ever be again, I’m afraid. They’re working overtime to destroy every traditional value America once held.

It should now be referred to as the Pink House. Truly disgusting. Abe & George must be olling over in their graves. They would probably wonder if it was worth it to look at us now.

A photo of the disgraced and infamous Marine.

“At a General Court Martial whereof Colo. Tupper was President (10th March 1778) Lieutt. [Frederick Gotthold] Enslin of Colo. Malcom's Regiment tried for attempting to commit sodomy, with John Monhort a soldier; Secondly, For Perjury in swearing to false Accounts, found guilty of the charges exhibited against him, being breaches of 5th. Article 18th. Section of the Articles of War and do sentence him to be dismiss'd the service with Infamy.

A Captain in the United States Marine Corps. on his knees begging another faggot to marry him. How does this mentally ill marine expect to get respect from real men?

Men who know this Captain has been on his knees before this man in a sexual way,either facing him or with his backside exposed.

No it isn’t a pretty thought, but that is the point. This man has to be respected, and no straight man can respect a man who uses his orifices to replace a woman.

This gives a whole new meaning to “Rear Area Security” as well.

This means that Schock is not eligible for health insurance from the Corps, and when Phelps is deployed next year, his partner will not have access to their home on the Marine base.

“I’m expecting to get orders to Japan next summer, but as of right now, because they’re not going to recognize Ben as my spouse, they’re not going to pay for him to accompany me; he’s not going to have any healthcare coverage; and, he’s not going to have access to the base while I’m gone,” he said. “I’d have to get permission to live out in town as a ‘single officer,’ so we’ll have to figure that out.”

This is really screwy! How then is boy toy living in "their" home *on base* now? Not family housing (yet!), so what's going on, is he an unauthorized permanent "guest" in the housing for single officers? If he doesn't have access to the base without his "Marine", then how can he be legitimately "living" there? Or does he mean in the next location?

And about those orders... something's off about the details or lack thereof. Do regular family members normally accompany Marines when they are deployed (i.e. in a temporary location), or is the Marine *transferring* to Japan, as in permanently detaching from his current location?

I don't know but this looks suspiciously like the Marine is abusing his housing situation on the base or they are whining that he is about to make a permanent move overseas and he can't defile family housing on the base overseas, or both. And why doesn't boy toy have any type of health insurance? Maybe this has to do with his wanting to tag along to Japan and use the medical facilities on the base.

If I had to guess what is the entitlement sob story, it is that unless the boy toy can go to Japan as a military spouse, he knows he's SOL without being sponsored (as a military dependent). No SOFA stamp in his passport means no long-term campsite in Japan for this loser.

It's only a matter of time before DOMA is dead and these weirdos are desecrating family housing and the military community in general with their overt delusional perversions.

"I suspect that if he were alive at the time Washington would have proudly fought for the Richmond government of Jefferson Davis."

Undoubtedly, although in a purely advisory role. Might be a trick to mount a horse at 130 years of age.

Please, someone, tell me again how Obama is a Christian. Please tell me how so many Christians and Catholics voted for Obama. What is their ongoing response to this display of sin and calling it “good”.

How is publicly mocking God - in the White House - a sign that Obama worships the one, true God?

There will be a great accounting.

Reading Craig Claibourne’s book made me realize there has always been quite a bit of gay activity in the military. Some of the recent books go into more detail. Everyone knew who was gay in the unit.

What is far worse for the Corps is that this guy is now bulletproof in his career advancement. Do you think that any of his senior officers would dare give him a negative OER, no matter how richly deserved, for fear of being branded a homophobe?
