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.

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?

The culture of corruption at the Newark Watershed Conservation and Development Corp. — alleged last week in a scathing 45-page report by the state comptroller — was apparently no secret to some in Newark’s political world. When queried by state investigators about payouts he received from the agency, one contractor said he was working on a local political campaign in 2008 and recalled the “buzz’ that had been circulating about NWCDC handing out contracts,” the report states. The contractor, Newark resident Edward McRae, discovered the buzz was no exaggeration. The report says McRae’s firm received nearly $390,000 in landscaping contracts from the

Novi Petrivtsi, Ukraine — The opulent residence of President Viktor Yanukovych has always been a closely guarded secret — and a symbol of the alleged corruption at Ukraine’s highest levels. On Saturday, after he fled the capital and its gates were thrown open, thousands streamed into the compound to get a first-hand look. Inside the walled compound known as Mezhyhirya, posh mansions stood amid manicured lawns. There were parks dotted with statues, ponds with fountains and wild ducks, a tennis court, a golf course and a colonnaded pavilion. As throngs of ordinary Ukrainians got their first look at Yanukovych’s luxurious estate, many

Lined up in the parking lot of the Mt. Brighton ski area last summer, rows of new, state-of-the-art snow-making equipment gave the place a military feel. They even call the huge, round fans that cool and crystallize droplets of water into snowflakes “guns.” The equipment, part of a $10 million renovation at the popular Livingston County ski area, is an investment in the future by its new owners, Colorado-based Vail Resorts.

East Windsor — A registered sex offender who was found naked with a 15-year-old boy in a seedy Fort Lee motel room is now facing federal sex trafficking charges, according to authorities. Jayme Shannon, 51, of East Brunswick, was arrested on Oct. 14, 2013 after he allegedly transported a 15-year-old boy across state lines to the Skyview Motel in Fort Lee and had sex with him, U.S. Attorney Paul J.

At least three-quarters of the New Jerseyans who have selected health insurance through the federal marketplace website have followed through by paying their first month’s premium, according to the three companies selling the policies. The state’s rate of paying customers is in line with figures reported across the nation. The figures are seen by some as an important barometer of success in the opening months of coverage. Critics of the Affordable Care Act have noted that with each enrollment update, federal officials have not revealed how many of the enrollees took the next step in purchasing a policy.

KANSAS CITY, MO - Following Saturday´s disturbance on the Country Club Plaza, three teens were arrested and one juvenile was detained. While one mother is apologizing and asking for the public´s forgiveness, another teen arrested over the weekend remains unapologetic for his actions and says police racially profiled him. Kansas City police were first called to Cinemark Palace, located at 500 Nichols Rd., about 8:15 p.m. Saturday on a large disturbance involving about 150 juveniles.

US ranks low in first-ever global
index of LGBT inclusion in armed forces
Guardian [UK], by Ed Pilkington    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 2/20/2014 11:09:17 PM     Post Reply
The enduring ban on transgender individuals serving in the US military has earned America a low ranking in the first global league table of LGBT inclusion in the armed forces. The US is placed at number 40 in the table of 103 countries’ armed forces as measured by their inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender service members. That puts it behind the militaries of countries such as Chile, Georgia and even America’s bête noire, Cuba. The US armed forces in September 2011 repealed the controversial policy of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, which forced gay service members to hide their sexuality.

Morris County — Snow, ice and even some solar panels falling from public buildings in Morris County this week have forced officials to scramble to make new arrangements. The rain and freezing rain experienced on Tuesday caused a “weight shifting” on some of the solar canopies at the county’s Mennen Arena in Morris Township, resulting in a number of solar panels falling, said County Administrator John Bonanni. While no one was hurt, one vehicle was damaged, Bonanni said. Parking under the solar canopies at Mennen has been suspended until the solar contractor is able to remove all the snow and ice,

The study, Housing Landscape 2014, looked at the percentage of low- and moderate-income households that spent more than 50 percent of their income on housing. It found 30.8 percent of New Jersey households faced “a severe housing cost burden,” an increase of 1.4 percent from 2009. Only households in California found it more burdensome, with 32.3 percent of low- and moderate-income households spending more than half of their earnings on

Controversial plans to create a state-appointed “guardian” for all children across Scotland were passed at Holyrood last night. It will create a new layer of protection to detect youngsters suffering in abusive families and follows a string of tragic toddler deaths in recent years. The change is also aimed at helping to spot health and emotional problems in the country’s children and provide better support for families. It means health visitors, midwives or school teachers will now take on the role of a “Named Person”, with a duty of support for every youngster up to the age of 18 across

The University of Notre Dame must provide birth control to employees and students after a federal appeals court ruled Friday, a move the school says will force it to violate its religious beliefs. In a blow to religious colleges and universities across the country, the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago denied Notre Dame´s request for an injunction to the ObamaCare birth control mandate that requires the school to provide coverage for contraception. The injunction would have given Notre Dame a temporary reprieve from the birth control mandate, as the Roman Catholic school challenges the rule in court.

WASHINGTON — President Obama plans to announce on Tuesday the opening of two new manufacturing institutes in the Chicago and Detroit areas as part of a larger plan to use public-private partnerships to advance his agenda despite opposition from Republicans in Congress. Several federal agencies will join forces with companies and universities to run the institutes, which will be devoted to bridging the gap between applied research and product development, according to an administration official familiar with the plans. Each institute will function as a “teaching factory,” the official said, and will provide training for workers while also helping companies get the

The Obama administration warned Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday not to react too aggressively to the fast-moving developments in Ukraine, where pro-Western demonstrators forced the nation’s Moscow-backed president from power over the weekend. National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice said the situation unfolding in Kiev “reflects the will of the Ukrainian people and the interests of the United States and Europe,” and that Russia would be making a “grave mistake” if it sends in military forces to try to reverse the developments — or to seize control of pro-Moscow eastern Ukraine.

The real mystery behind the FCC´s now abandoned "study" to police American newsrooms is why the mainstream media refused to raise holy hell over it. While Obama´s lapdogs refused to bark, it was conservative media who fought for newsroom independence and got the FCC to finally back down. Other than the media´s natural obedience to Obama, the fact that the fingerprints of left-wing billionaire George Soros have been found on the FCC study might also help to explain the media´s silence. CNS News reports that for the first ten years of the last decade, Soros donated more than $52 million
