WEST POINT, N.Y. Two West Point graduates were married Saturday in the military academy's first wedding between two men.
Larry Choate III, class of 2009, married Daniel Lennox, class of 2007, before about 20 guests.
Choate, 27, taught Sunday school at the U.S. Military Academy's Cadet Chapel and said he always thought of it as the place he would get married if he could.
West Point hosted two same-sex weddings of women in late 2012, more than a year after New York legalized same-sex marriage. But Saturday's wedding was the first time two men wed at West Point.

Oh, for bleep’s sake.
And of course he taught Sunday school. Great.
And after the “marriage” was finalized they proceeded to bleep each other up the bleep on the very spot where Eisenhauer,Patton and others stood.
WTF? It’s a Christian chapel for crying out loud.
You read the article and these guys weren’t in the military. Their only connection is that they once graduated from West Point. This was an “in your face” move for no other purpose than that.
Another Obama “first” and “historical” moment that we’re supposed to be “proud” of or else.
this is an abomination to God
God help us!
God help us is right.
As a wise Freeper pointed out, “this isn’t yesterday’s military - keep your kids out of it.”
IDF for us.
This is exactly how I feel, having seen the picture.
Seeing two men, holding hands and looking adoringly at each other....God help us.
It makes me feel the same way. Sick.
reminds me of the threat on the Religion forum the other day asking whether Satan was getting the job done these days...
Jeeze.. the slippery slope is flowing green mucus..
Sorry General Eisenhower & General Bradley.
“Choate, 27, taught Sunday school at the U.S. Military Academy’s Cadet Chapel and said he always thought of it as the place he would get married if he could.”
Sunday school? Bizarre! What part of the Bible did he study?
Well ithn’t that thpethial.
I think I’m gonna puke.
What happened to the six year commitment?
So now when a soldier tells another that he’s “Got your back” it has a completely different meaning than it did in previous eras.
It’s much worse. Our wonderful military is being assaulted in a number of ways by this administration. I received an email today from Jay Sekulow, ACLJ Chief Counsel ( his organization sends these out regularly) informing me that they are seeing an increasing number of cases where military personnel are being taught that “evangelical Christians” and members of the Tea Party are extremists.
It is spiritual and material warfare!
Its all about spite.
I find it intriguing that people truly believe this can occur and then we can just go on about our lives, merrily, like all is okay. It will not be so. God will not be mocked.
It is hard to watch my beloved America be so torn down. I am not supposed to hate, Obama puts me to the test, as do the people who voted for him. I literally refuse to speak to anyone I know that voted for that....
May God smite them both
” I literally refuse to speak to anyone I know that voted for that....”
I’m almost to the same point , yet I have to work and in the workplace there are many that do not see things our way . So I don’t ask , I avoid as much as possible . And others do not mention politics , so there is much silence on these matters .FR provides a much needed outlet . I can speak (write) as I feel . This is our community . I appreciate it very much .
only 20 guests?
Cheap bass turd couldn’t spring for a more elegant and memorable “wedding”???
Don’t look for this to last.
Ring probably came as a prize from one of those carnival ring tosses....
If Gen Patton were alive today, I’d tell him, “Sorry it all went to sh*t, sir.”
Two dudes doing it ain’t natural, man.
“As a wise Freeper pointed out, this isnt yesterdays military - keep your kids out of it.
I couldn’t agree more.
just what our national defense effort needed!
ride ‘em, cowboy, away!!!
"We all know where you've been, you military fairy."
No Honor boards anymore. The Code has been disgraced by the Institution of the Academy itself. By that violation alone it should be closed. And every other Federal service academy as well, as they have all violated their Honor Codes similarly.
Now official policy of the US Army.
Talk about weakening your military.
Barry’s goal is to convert our ARMY OF ONE into an ARMY of Dung.
The clown-supporter who "officiated" this false marriage.

Mt 19:1 And it came to pass, [that] when Jesus had finished these sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judaea beyond Jordan;
Mt 19:2 And great multitudes followed him; and he healed them there.
Mt 19:3 The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?
Mt 19:4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made [them] at the beginning made them male and female,
Mt 19:5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
Mt 19:6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
Don’t you think that is just “special”
make me want to puke.
“God will not be mocked.”
He’s being mocked all over the place and I dont see Him stopping it.
Obama’s agenda: a poke in the eye to the military and all of us.
The “long gray line” ends. My sources say standing enlisted forces WILL DISOBEY Their officers. Smoke signals of command failures top to bottom.
If I attended West Point, I think I would have passed on the opportunity to attend.
