Skip to comments.Christian Airman Punished by Lesbian Commander Faces Possible Court Martial
Posted on 09/06/2013 8:38:38 PM PDT by lowbridge
Updating our earlier report on Senior Master Sergeant Phillip Monk, a Christian serving in the Air Force whose unit is now commanded by a lesbian: according to Monks complaint filed with his superiors, he was relieved of duty for refusing his commanders order to say he supports gay marriage.
Now the Air Force has taken the first steps to criminally investigate Monk for talking to the media about his situation. Despite the fact that earlier this year the Obama-Hagel Pentagon said they would never court-martial a service member for their Christian faith, they have taken the first steps to possibly court-martial Monk.
On Aug. 27, an Air Force investigator met with Monk and his attorney, Mike Berry from Liberty Institute. Berry expected it to be a routine meeting to take a statement from his client, but during the meeting the investigator said that he would read Monk his Miranda rights.
Monk was advised that he is being investigated for committing a crime by the U.S. military for making a false official statement, that he has the right to remain silent, and that he has the right to an attorney. The Air Force then assigned military defense counsel to him and is deciding whether to formally charge him with a crime, at which point Monk would either have to admit guilt and accept further punishment or face a court martial.
Monk is being investigated and might be formally charged for violating Article 107 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), which makes it a crime to make a false official statement. But Monks explaining his situation to the media is not an official statement.

How do they keep anyone in the military? Bad economy, I guess.
Take-away: Don’t let your sons, daughters, nieces, nephews or grandchildren join this military. If they’re already serving, counsel them to leave at the end of their enlistment or contract. Seriously. I joined during the Carter administration, thinking that a president was a president. There was a MAJOR improvement after President Reagan had been in office for awhile.
carpet munchers can now order you to say anything.
Time to light up the DC phone lines on another outrage, ya think?
He can only hope that the court martial panel is made up of old school military types. Hope he is acquitted and his commander is brought up on charges.
Not much chance of that. Obama will probably appoint a specila pannel. Rosie O’Donnel, Mizz Maddow, and Tammy Baldwin.
I hate that guy
The people that do things like this have an agenda, obviously. If the “proles” are complaining, they know they’ve hit their target. They relish your complaints, they revel in your raised voices and screams, they cherish your outrage and laugh at your objections. They’ve spent many years and much effort to get where we are today and they’re not giving in without a real good reason.
that’s the whole point - they are trying drive all the “Monks” out.
This was said in order to flush out and remove anyone with even a hint of Christian belief or even someone who disagrees with homosexuality irregardless of religious beliefs.
King Zero has to decimate and gut the military so they will be incapable of helping true patriots if the SHTF and the arrogant one declares martial law on a made-up pretext (remember Hitler and the so-called Polish attack on a German radio station used as justification to invade Poland).
I'm sure Zero and his merry band of court jesters were hoping Trayvon Martin would be their Horst Wessel.
A court martial for not agreeing with the political views of your superior??
We have Zampolits in the US Army now??
This guys been in 19 yrs
He’s a gutsy guy
Needs and deserves a lot of support and perhaps a good fund raiser as he could lose his retirement. Not because he should’ve shut up but because he’s not like McCain and those corrupt selfish care nothing about the military creatures.
If he goes down it’ll send a shock of fear of the homosexual agenda through our wonderful military
So is their a written record of why he was being punished?
Or is the military basing this only on the word of the Lesbian???
It’s an outrage that deserves to be shouted about. Yet, Hannity thinks its okay to do shows with 16 year old sexually ambiguous libs talking crap.
Respectfully, I do not agree.
I think that the idea is for those who hate our military to make military life awkward and uncomfortable in order to get the good troops out, and replace with those of more flexible view of why we have a national defense.
This USAF vet has one "kid" still in uniform, and I would hope would consider the military as a career.
We need to encourage those with a traditional view of this Country's greatness to remain in, and weather the storm.
Surprisingly, even in today’s queer infested military, the multitude of folks are still level headed and can appreciate and understand the circumstances and will render a fair and impartial verdict ... if it comes to that.
I remember in reading “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich” some people had a description of Hitler as a “carpet eater”.
It seems when he got really mad he would chew the edges of the rugs. Ha!
She/It is a real piece of work.
Before the installation and then repeal of DOMA wasn’t it a violation of the UCMJ to be a practicing lesbian? Wouldn’t his commanding officer herself be guilty of having made a false official statement by denying her engagement in that activity? It would help to know how long that commanding officer was in the military.
The goal of the liberals has always been to turn our red state military blue...
thats the whole point - they are trying drive all the Monks out.
I really hope they do. That way, our young men and women who love this country will be here to protect it even in a civilian capacity and the queers can go fight in Syria.
Yes, this is sarcasm. Sort of..
Futility. They’ve taken control, the fight is over. Look at it this way: It’s only been a year or so that homosexuals were allowed to openly serve in the Air Force, but this guy’s lesbian commander is a major. As I’m sure you know, you don’t make it to major in a year or even five years, so they’ve prepped these people way in advance of their final push. Your kid will be treated like this sergeant, or worse, should they ever give the service a reason.
US Air Force, and yes, we do.
I did my 20 in the Chicago Police Department.
Got out about 2 years ago.
Unfortunately, the exact reasons that drove me to an early retirement are now nationwide.
The first step of the fascist is to destroy any force-wielding institution with its own standards and traditions because they are hard to control.
Case in point; the Egyptian Army.
It’s troubling when Christians in are armed services are prosecuted for speaking to the media about their faith.
Active Duty/Retiree ping.
The military is commanded and supported by civilians. We are the ones with the authority, not those in the military. I would prefer all straight people get out of military service so we can best determine what to do with the others.
Give me a phone number, time to call every pol in this mess....rug munchin CO needs to get F’N retired....Fight On Sgt. Monk!...
It aint a wonderful military with these people in charge and will only be getting worse , alot worse.
Don’t be so sure of that.
The Homomafia-—like in Fr. Oko’s Report-—discusses how all the sodomites are fascists-—they support the homosexual evil agenda and literally destroy whomever gets in their way. They crush them.
Just like the homosexual SA troops—once they control the top position -—they could do any inhumane thing, because they are devoid of morality. And like the Samurai....The fear can silence anyone....as we see even in takeover of our Boy Scouts....giving homosexuals access to boys minds to normalize vile behavior.
Sodomites control the CIC and the Supreme Court now...and the military-—so they all have their agenda in place. It is set. They are also going State by State to destroy Christian Ethics. They control the schools so they have the minds of the future.
What was the false statement?
I am not an orthodox Christian, I tend to go by intuition on a lot of things, but there is something very evil and very odd about the extent to which gays have assumed such power in society in such a short time. It is downright weird how they’ve gone from being the butt of jokes (no pun intended) to bullying everyone else, with the law at their back.
One thing I’ve noticed, is that when gays get a foothold in an organization, they soon take over. That is what happened in all those seminaries in the Catholic Church - the gays slipped in, and took over.
Get the straights out of the military. Then, a land war with China. Both sides agree to stay non-nuclear. China deals with their excess male population and we get rid of.....
OMG!!! Our one fine wonderful military is CORRUPTED by GAYS ALREADY!!!
I agree with you 2nd. I am always telling my son not to join up. The thing is, he has half a brain in his head. He does not need me to tell him the truth. He sees it himself, and has no intention of going in. I am so cynical of scum bags, that I can almost believe that these scum bags are trying to create a military that will gladly massacre millions of American civilians. Join me in Davao.
I used to steer people towards the Army when I worked at the unemployment office and later, but then we had American presidents, not like now. If you ever get chance, FReepmail me with a thumbnail sketch of what you’ve found out about the PI in your years of research.
To the firmly believing Christian, trouble is an opportunity to engage the ungodly world, all covered in a plain brown wrapper. Bring it on, Uncle Sam, if you are so foolish as to do that.
I understand bro. I served under Jimmy Carter too. As much of a nerd as he is, he was not like Odumbo and his brand of sexual perverts. OK, I will freep mail you with info.
Is this NOT the same cowardly terrorist-protecting
Pentagon that defends al Qaeda
(as its private AIR FORCE and ground troops (shhhhhh)
even after al Qaeda BOMBED the Pentagon)
against the American people and the US Constitution?
When the administration let perverts to openly serve in the military, you knew this kind of stuff would eventually happen.
This is all preparation for the day that the military will be ordered to fire on all those bitter clingers who oppose Zero's assumption of dictatorial powers.
