West Point hosts first wedding between 2 men
cbsnews.com ^

Posted on 11/02/2013 5:38:22 PM PDT by Sub-Driver

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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....

” 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 .

"We will not lie, cheat nor steal, nor tolerate those among us who do."

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.

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.
