Lesbian Officer Punishes Airman for Moral Beliefs

19-year Air Force veteran Senior Master Sgt. Phillip Monk was immediately relieved of his duties as a result of his commander, (open lesbian) Major Elisa Valenzuela, forcing him to admit that he wouldn't advance the Gay Agenda due to his Christian faith.  Monk was forbidden to even return to his desk to retrieve personal belongings.

UPDATE 10/26/13: Air Force Drops God; Army Admits Training Labeled Christians as Terrorists

-- From "Master sergeant files lawsuit against Air Force claiming religious discrimination" by Christine Dobbyn, ABC News KTRK-TV13 (Houston, TX) 8/21/13

[Monk] claims a turn of events in June while serving in the 326th training squadron at Lackland Air Force base is why he's in front of the bright lights and camera now.

A letter seeking redress filed on behalf of Monk by the Liberty Institute says while on duty, the sergeant was asked by his female commander whether "he could agree that a verbal statement expressing religious or moral opposition to same-sex marriage was discrimination. Monk answered he did not agree that it was discrimination."

"When I wouldn't agree to my commander's viewpoint on a religious matter, I was relieved and stripped of my position," Monk said.

From "AF sgt. claims he was fired for religious views on gays" by Rick Maze, Staff writer, Air Force Times 8/16/13

The case of the senior master sergeant is exactly what some lawmakers are trying to prevent by seeking changes in military policies on diversity, tolerance and religious freedom that would allow service members with strong religious or moral objections to homosexuality to speak their minds without fear of reprisal.

Monk, an evangelical Christian, said the issue came up when he was advising his commander about a situation involving a staff sergeant who had expressed opposition to homosexuality on religious grounds — an opinion shared with trainees that might be a violation of an Air Force policy barring the use of a position of authority to promote personal religious beliefs.

Monk said he wanted the incident to be treated as a learning experience, but the commander wanted to do more. Monk said this led to a discussion in which the commander pressed him into saying he also had a moral objection to gay marriage.

Monk said it was a “very, very contentious” discussion . . .

From "Airman Punished for Opposing Gay Marriage Files Complaint" by Todd Starnes, 8/20/13

. . . Monk told Fox News . . . “We’ve been told that if you publicly say that homosexuality is wrong, you are in violation of Air Force policy.”

“In one of our first meetings, she was talking about her promotion and she mentioned something about a benediction,” Monk told Fox News. “She said she wanted a chaplain but objected to one particular chaplain that she called a bigot because he preached that homosexuality is a sin.”

“She then said, ‘I don’t know what kind of people actually believe that kind of crap,’” Monk said, recalling the meeting. “I knew I was going to have a rough time in this unit and I would have to be very careful what I said.”

Liberty Institute attorney Michael Berry said the [lesbian] major’s actions are a violation of the law.

“Your conduct constitutes unlawful discrimination,” Berry wrote in a letter to the major. “According to Department of Defense Directive 1020.02, unlawful discrimination against individuals or groups based on religion is contrary to good order and discipline, counterproductive to combat readiness and mission accomplishment, and shall not be condoned.”
