A pro-family leader says it's a "disgrace" that the United
States Military Academy at West Point has allowed two so-called
same-sex "marriage" ceremonies to be performed on its campus. But
he urges God's people to take heart.
Two lesbians, one of whom was a 1980 graduate of the Academy,
were recently "married" at the Cadet Chapel at West Point (see earlier
story). It followed a similar union the previous weekend of two
other lesbians at the chapel in West Point's cemetery.
Robert Knight, senior fellow/executive director at
Civil Rights Union (ACRU), is disappointed in the Academy.
"It's a disgrace that West Point allowed same-sex so-called
'marriage' in the chapel," he submits. "That's a blasphemy against
God. It goes against the Defense of Marriage Act, a federal law.
It's a finger in the eye of God and the American people who still
hold to biblical morality, and it was done deliberately. They did
it there to make a point."
Knight believes all of this has come about because of President
Barack Obama's dedication to the LGBT cause.
"We are in the grip of an unholy regime," he contends. "We have
people who are lawless, godless. They are a law unto themselves,
and they have taken command of our government, our institutions,
the media, Hollywood -- you name it. So people who love God and
obey his laws are up against huge force."
But as the ACRU spokesman points out, God's people have found
themselves as a minority in times past, so he urges them not to
lose heart or give up.
In a nation that is often described as "post-Christian," a spark
of revival might be on the horizon.
