  •  Constantly being bombarded... (4+ / 0-)

    ...with prejudice and discrimination of the anti-everything of evangelical fundamental Christianity is exhausting. I'd never fault someone for getting tired of it and needing to escape.

    •  Yeah but this is West Point (0+ / 0-)

      You expect cadets to be tougher than the average person.  And it's really hard to change an institution from the outside.  (As an ex-Catholic I know this all too well!)

      But Roland Martin's extenuating personal situation explains pretty much why it was untenable to stay.

      I hope there's a contingent remaining on the inside of West Point committed to changing that warped culture.
