A 19 year career US Air Force Sergeant has been dismissed by his commanding officer for refusing to say anything about homosexual marriage. The commander is reportedly a lesbian. Here’s the incredible story from Baptist Press:

SAN ANTONIO (BP) — Due to a perceived slight against homosexuality, Senior Master Sgt. Phillip Monk is in a fight for his career. The Lackland Air Force base first sergeant was told by his commanding officer to clear out his office on Aug. 9. The point of contention reportedly is not about anything Monk said, but what he refused to say.

"It’s all because he didn’t say anything wrong. He thought it," said Steven Branson, pastor of Village Parkway Baptist Church in San Antonio. Monk, his wife and their three teenage sons faithfully attend services each Sunday the pastor said.  …

At issue is Monk’s refusal to reveal his personal views regarding homosexual marriage to his commanding officer. …

Branson said the commander began to press Monk about his views on the issue.
Fox reported, "She said, ‘Sgt. Monk, I need to know if you can, as my first sergeant, if you can see discrimination if somebody says that they don’t agree with homosexual marriage.’"
… Monk declined to answer. He also understood Air Force policy demands silence from homosexual detractors.
"She got angrier and angrier with him," Branson said. "So he got fired for something she thinks he believes."

Response: A couple of years ago the commander in this story would not have been able to serve in the US military except by keeping quite about her sexual preferences under the ‘don’t ask and don’t tell’ policy. Now this Air Force Sergeant could lose his career and retirement for keeping quite about his beliefs about homosexual marriage? Is this ironic or what?  

This is a bridge too far and cannot be allowed to stand or conservative  Christians will no longer be able to serve in the US military. It is the commander that needs to be disciplined for discrimination-  discrimination against Christians. Or is it now open season on conservative Christians in the US military?            *Top
