Same Sex Ceremony in the Military Is Wrong
The Daily Caller reports:
Two Republican congressmen and a military chaplains’ organization are crying foul after the U.S. Army confirmed that an Army chaplain officiated a same-sex wedding ceremony for two female soldiers last month in the base chapel at Fort Polk, La.
“The liberal social experiment with our military continues. A same-sex marriage-like ceremony should not have occurred at Fort Polk, especially since the people of Louisiana have made it abundantly clear that our state does not recognize same-sex marriages or civil unions,” Louisiana Republican Rep. John Fleming said on Wednesday.
“My frustration is compounded by the fact that a social agenda, which has nothing to do with military readiness or our national defense, is being imposed on our men and women in uniform.”
More here.I agree. This is a horrible idea, first of all because no Christian would dare violate God's created order in "marrying" two people of the same sex. Moreover, no true Christian would recognize such a relationship as valid, since God Himself has stated it is sin (Romans 1:23-32, Jude 7, 1Cor. 6:9-10). Also, the military should not be the place of a social experiment. And lastly, when the voters made it clear that marriage is between a man and a woman, which is in line both historically, biblically, biologically (fit and function), and culturally (well, until these Post-Modern days of Sodom and Gomorrah), such an act of defiance should not have occurred.
