"Army officials are experts at following orders--except when it comes to federal marriage law. For the second time in two weeks, the brass at West Point opened its gates to lesbian 'wedding' ceremonies in direct defiance of the Defense of Marriage Act. Adding insult to the law's injury, Saturday's service was held in the Cadet Chapel, a 176-year-old house of worship that has been the heartbeat of the Academy's Christian community for almost two centuries. Brenda Fulton, one of the 'brides,' said the Chapel was a particularly meaningful site, because it's where she first heard the Cadet Prayer: 'Make us to choose the harder right instead of the easier wrong' -- words that, in the end, even West Point failed to live up to. Fulton and her same-sex partner marched down the aisle knowing full well they were leading the military's own processional away from the rule of law." - Hate group leader Tony Perkins, via press release.
