WASHINGTON (BP)--It is not as if the ruling by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court permitting the "marriage" of same-sex couples came as a surprise.

WASHINGTON (BP)--Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin, a much-decorated soldier, was wounded by the political correctness movement in recent days over comments he made comparing the war against militant Islam to a battle against Satan. Boykin, who is deputy undersecretary of defense, had told evangelical Christian audiences that radical Islam threatens to destroy America "because we're a Christian nation." He has also said, according to tapes of his remarks obtained by The Los Angeles Times and NBC News, that Muslims worship an "idol" and not "a real God."
