West Point, N.Y. — Cadet Chapel, the landmark gothic church that is a center for spiritual life at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, was hosting its first same-sex wedding Saturday. Penelope Gnesin and Brenda Sue Fulton, a West Point graduate, were exchanging vows in the regal church in an afternoon ceremony attended by around 250 guests and conducted by a senior Army chaplain. The two have been together for 17 years. They had a civil commitment ceremony that didn´t carry any legal force in 1999 but had long hoped to formally tie the knot. The way was cleared

No - actually it did not. The chapel was the setting for a strange, pathetic masquerade carried out by sad, delusional personages. It was not a wedding.

At least they didn´t force any of the local chaplains to perform the ceremony. Now that both religious teachings and procreation are out of the picture, is there a barrier to marrying two sisters or a mother and her daughter?

So thousands of straight couples get married in a military chapel...yet we need to heighten awareness to a lesbian wedding...why? What makes them so special, I just wish they stop acting like they are accomplishing earth shattering news....,it´s only news in the rainbow world...the rest of us are getting tired of all the special attention.

Sad, pathetic travesty. But let´s not forget that a holy place, a house of
God sanctified by decades of worship, was desecrated by this unholy ceremony. Bowing the knee to Baal -- and worse -- got the Israelites banished, remember. We are descended from people who were burned alive and devoured by beasts instead of burning a tiny bit of incense to Caesar, who called himself a god. I would say this is worse. Much worse.

We need to understand that a rival god has replaced the worship or the true God. The state-sponsored god, DIVERSITY, is worshiped in the place of God.

I never thought the day would ever come when same-sex "marriage" is taken seriously instead of being laughed at.

If society accepts the notion of gay "marriage," then there is no logical reason to deny other types of "marriage." Bigamy, polygamy, or group "marriage" should also be legalized. So, if three people are in a love triangle, it should be legal for them to get "married" as a threesome. And four people in a love quadrangle should also be able to get legally "married" as a foursome.

Our communist compatriots push and push at every opportunity. At least they are never at peace with themselves. So now they desecrate our chapels. Very soon the homosexuals will sue for Catholic weddings, and we will have to close our parishes. Looking around me I see a permanent Democrat majority. We will have to think about going underground.

These sexual perversions are used to corrupt Western Civilization.

So the "brides" both wore pants, one a white pants ensemble and the other a black pants ensemble. Why do they call them both brides? Does a bride not have a groom?

#7 since there are 30 plus muslim cadets at West Point a goat wedding will probably occur there first. #13 amen to that. America will never win another war. We do not have the will and soon will not have the capability.

Garbage in, garbage out.

What a complete travesty. But, your new junior officers from all service academies have been thoroughly indoctrinated prior to their acceptance so this isn´t news to them.

I was visiting an ivy league university the other day and walked past the LAMBDA office. "Our doors are open to all who are oppressed..." etc etc etc.

Church attendance is down across the US (50% in UK) and feel-good hippy churches are on the rise (again).

What do we expect?

Some generic drugs have

Pharmacist Larry Cowan can flip through his records and spot the generic drugs that have taken big price jumps in the past year or so. There’s digoxin, a heart medicine that he used to buy for pennies a pill. “Now the price is close to 10 times that,” said Cowan, owner of Glenview Professional Pharmacy in Richland Hills. There’s doxycycline, a decades-old antibiotic that went on the Food and Drug Administration’s shortage list in 2012 and became the poster child for generic price spikes. Cowan said a tablet of doxycycline went from about 6 cents in late 2012 to $3.65

Bon voyage Quantum! We hardly knew ye.

Trenton — Deeply in debt and struggling to stay open, Saint Michael’s Medical Center of Newark put itself up for sale two years ago and accepted a $65 million offer from Prime Healthcare Services of California. Weeks later, however, Prime took a closer look at Saint Michael’s books and concluded they revealed “burdensome and inflexible” labor contracts, HMO rates “significantly below market price,” and two doctors earning more than $500,000 annually. (Snip) The proceeds from the sale won’t come close to conquering the $233 million mountain of state-backed loans Saint Michael took on when its parent company, Catholic Health East,

The Internal Revenue Service is demanding that Ron Paul´s Campaign for Liberty organization hand over its list of contributors, and has fined the non-profit organization $12,900 for failing to give names on its annual IRS filing. "There is no legitimate reason for the IRS to know who donates to Campaign for Liberty," the organization´s Communications Director Megan Stiles told the Washington Examiner in an e-mail April 15.

Schools in Birmingham are illegally segregating pupils, discriminating against non-Muslim students and restricting the GCSE syllabus to “comply with conservative Islamic teaching”, an official report leaked to The Telegraph discloses. Department for Education inspectors said that girls in a school at the centre of the so-called “Trojan Horse” plot were forced to sit at the back of the class, some Christian pupils were left to “teach themselves” and an extremist preacher was invited to speak to children. The report, into three schools in the city, follows weeks of controversy over the alleged plot to “Islamise” secular schools in Birmingham

West Memphis, AR — Two people have been arrested after an 89-year-old woman in West Memphis, Ark., was beaten so badly a bloody footprint was left on her face. It was just after 9 p.m. Monday when Allene Durdin answered her door and was beaten and robbed in her North McAuley Drive home. She had seven broken ribs, a broken nose and bleeding of the brain, according to her granddaughter. Arrested were Terrio Pope, 19, and Ramon Huntley, 17, both of West Memphis.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
