West Point hosts first gay marriage

The first same-sex wedding ceremony will be held Saturday at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point’s Cadet Chapel, USA Today reported.

Two women, Brenda Sue Fulton and Penelope Dara Gnesin, will exchange vows one year after the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy banning gays from serving openly in the military came to an end.

“We will be the first same-sex couple to wed at the Cadet Chapel at West Point,” Fulton told USA Today in an email Friday night. She is a veteran and the communications director of OutServe, an organization for LGBT military personnel.

    It will not be marriage, it may be a religious ceremony. but not officiated by a Christian Chaplain and they will be two Lesbians engaging in unnatural sex acts and they will be taking advantage of the people by gaining marriage benefits and corrupting the military in the process, but it will never be is marriage.

      Well, it’s a good thing that the two ladies getting marriage really don’t care what you think.

        Well my only concern is for their everlasting souls, the souls of those involved in such sinful conduct and their moral harm to the sacrament of marriage and our country. You only care about their being able to satisfy their carnal lusts for a season and their ability to construct such a fantasy to pretend they are married. I care about eternity and that what false joy they may experience for a short time, will be a terrible conscious torment to them both forever. In Christ I have a love for their souls, you love them not at all, which is your free will choice.

          You can care about your soles all you want.

          But, thankfully, they’re free to ignore you.

            Just as those people wanting to murder their babies in the womb are free to ignore you?
