Holding fast in 'the grip of an unholy regime'

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.

Knight, Robert (ACRU)Robert Knight, senior fellow/executive director at The American 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.
