First Same-Sex Marriage Held at West Point Chapel

Whether or not you or anyone believes that social issues have a place in politics, social issues are what make us a humanity and a society that co-exists. Believe me, I’m not the type of person to slap a “Coexist” sticker on my car representing every religious symbol, but The United States is make great strides as a humanity. “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” is one piece of this evolution.

This weekend, the Chapel at West Point Academy held their very first same-sex marriage since the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy was repealed last year. Republicans have been trying to pass legislation that would prohibit gay couples from getting married on any military properties, but President Obama has opposed all of their efforts. As a result, and American solider was able to get married at West Point.

This isn't something I think about on a daily basis, so I'm neither here nor there. However, for same-sex couples and those who are actively involved in support of the LGBT community, this is another success. For the people who don't care or don't like need to get over it. If a heterosexual couple really feels like this permission takes away from the value of their marriage should find something else to worry about. This isn't something that affects your daily life, your health, your job, your family, etc. Congratulations to the couple, the LGBT community for this stride of success this weekend.

The un-questioned and unconditional love of another human being is not necessarily easy to find, and when we do…we need to hang onto it. And when the commitment is made, both partners should have an equal stake in it, which only a certified marriage can address some “technicalities”. I say it is about time.

Apparently some people are confused by the difference between ‘two consenting adults’ and ‘bestiality with animals who cannot voice their desires’….

And since they can’t make that distinction, they apparently have no problem limiting the rights of their fellow citizens to avoid that slippery slope.

I bet 40 years ago the same type of people were saying ‘if we let white and black people marry, what’s next, human’s marrying their pets?’

Agreed. But I don’t see why we ban polygamy. Especially among old people, where women outnumber men, it makes sense.

The specifics of the DOMA case before the court are particularly poignant, since they involve a woman, Edith Windsor, who was forced forced to pay more than $350,000 in estate taxes after her wife passed away. The money wouldn’t have been owed by the survivor of a marriage recognized by the feds. That’s a pretty effective rebuttal of those who think legal recognition is either unimportant or a step too far.

The supreme court will hear 2 gay marriage cases.

We should legalize gay marriage and outlaw all other types of civil unions. People should be all in or not. Right now, we have the strange situation in some places where people can get benefits w/o responsibility.

Few gay men want to get married. For them it is mainly a political issue. Gay women are more likely to want it. In any case, call the bluff.

I think we should do the same, BTW, for women in combat. Few women (actually few men too) want to engage in combat and even fewer can actually do it successfully. It is mostly a political issue. Call the bluff.

Speaking of bluffs, we should also give president Obama his tax rise on the top 2%. It will not make a big difference. It will hurt the economy only a little and balance the budget not at all, but then he won’t be able to claim it is holding back his progress. Of course, he will quickly find something new to blame.

Obama will only blame the previous administration and the Senate when his tax increase doesn’t work C&J. After all nothing is his fault. It’s always someone else screwing the pooch. Not him.
That’s the thing I’ve noticed about liberals. They never take responsibility for anything. It’s always someone else’s fault. And the further left they are, the less responsibility they take.
While I’m against gay marriage for religious reason I believe you just might have something there. Call the bluff.
I’ve never seen anyone in 20 years in service that wanted to go to war. Much less into combat. I’m personally not very hot on the idea of women in combat. But these women that train for combat rolls are taking a slot that a man could take. So send their butts to the front. Call the bluff.
When the body bags with the bodys of women killed in combat start coming home, then we’ll see how loud NOW and the rest of them women’s fib organizations start screaming.

Um…just to let you know, other then same sex couples is totally weird and non-profitable to the couple i.e. children, its not really that republicans are trying to abolish same sex marriage just because they’re religious but also because they don’t believe that the same sex couples should be able to force an adoption center or church to give them what they want. So other from being stupid its unmoral to force others to do what you want them to do.
