Air Force sergeant relieved from duty after disagreeing with openly gay commander

Senior Master Sergeant Phillip Monk was relieved from duty after disagreeing with his openly gay commander.

An Air Force veteran was relieved from duty after disagreeing with his openly gay commander.

Senior Master Sergeant Phillip Monk, a 19-year Air Force veteran, stepped in when his openly gay commander talked of severely punishing a subordinate Airman who expressed his religious beliefs, objecting to homosexuality.

Monk, an evangelical Christian, shared his opinion with his commander, advising her the incident be utilized as a learning experience on tolerance and diversity. Later, Monk was relieved of his duties and reassigned. The commander also banned Monk from returning to the unit and when he came to retrieve his personal effects, he had to first request permission.

“I was relieved of my position because I don’t agree with my commander’s position on gay marriage,” said Monk. “We’ve been told that if you publicly say that homosexuality is wrong, you are in violation of Air Force policy.”

Air Force Instruction 1-1 states that commanders “must avoid the actual or apparent use of their position to promote their personal religious beliefs to their subordinate or to extend preferential treatment for any religion.”

Monk has retained an attorney from Liberty Institute to defend his religious liberties and rights.

“Are we going to have a ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy for Christians so we don’t get harassed for our beliefs? Here’s a guy who wants to have his religious liberty and serve in the military. He shouldn’t have to believe in gay marriage in order to serve,” Liberty Institute Litigation Director Hiram Sasser said.

Monk has served as a First Sergeant at Lackland Air Force in San Antonio since 2011 and has recently returned from a deployment. He has requested that his position be reinstated.

      What a world when those whose disease spreading practices which have claimed the lives of millions of innocents can dictate how the rest of us react to their flaunting of disgusting behavior.

      Only the devil himself could twist things so far out of balance.

      What’s next? Will these twisted souls demand that we accept pedophiles and beastiality practitioners as well?

      Loving your fellow man is one thing……practicing fecal sex and taking the lives of millions of innocents with egregiously irresponsible and disgusting behavior is quite another.

      It’s torture, suicide and murder……

      The hard way.

      This is how God dealt with sodom and gomorrah:

      And He says that the destruction of those emulating the behavior of those who’ve gone before in those cities will be WORSE than that of sodom and gomorrah.

      Blessings, dear reader, in Christ and if you feel far from God, whom do you think has moved?
