Obama Announces Nomination of First Openly Gay Man as Secretary of the Army

The White House announced Friday afternoon that President Barack Obama intends to nominate Erik F. Fanning as the next secretary of the Army, a move that would make Fanning the first openly gay person to lead the Army if confirmed by the Senate.

BREITBART REPORTED THE FOLLOWING:

Fanning has served as acting under secretary of the Army since June 2015 and previously served as special assistant to Secretary of Defense Ash Carter. He has a long record of national security service in the military and Congress which dates back more than two decades. The 47-year-old, however, has no record of military service, but it is not a requirement for the position and many who have held the position have not served.

The White House announced the nomination in a news release with several others.

    What do you bet this never occurred in 17th-century Colonial America whose governments were established upon Yahweh’s moral law, beginning with the First Commandment?

    So why is it occurring today? Could it have anything to do with the late 18th-century founders replacing the Yahweh’s unchanging moral law (including Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13) for their own capricious man-made Enlightenment concepts?
