Skip to comments.Sergeant dismissed for saying ... nothing
Posted on 08/16/2013 4:27:50 PM PDT by ReformationFan
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.
Branson said he has been in touch with Monk since the sergeant told him Sunday (Aug. 11) of the untenable situation. The pastor said Monk feels abandoned by the institution he has served for 19 years. Deployed as a medic, Monk devoted himself to saving the lives of his fellow service men and women, according to his pastor.
"Now I'm in trouble," Monk told Branson, "and everybody's leaving me behind."

The military now has a “Don’t Think, Don’t Tell” policy concerning Christianity.
It pains me but I would recommend any Christian to stay out of the military and for those in to end NOT re-up.
The military has become a Christian-hostile environment.
I know this is bad for our country in the long run but people of good consciousness should never be forced to serve an immoral master.
Moral slavery is slavery nonetheless (hey! my new tag!)
WE NEED A NEW PARTY NOW!
We are becoming Venezuela or maybe Zimbabwe
Seems like the Baptists are the only ones who don’t open their arms in full rainbow-flagged acceptance of homosexuality.
We will soon have effectively an all homosexual and women military that will then continue to evolve into an all homosexual(with a few fag hags) military. We are wirjubg ib becoming a Homosexual Nation. Heteros will have dhimmi status in the New Homosexual Order. Liberal heteros will waste no time in proclaiming their adherence to Homosexuality and will change their behaviour entirely to comport with the new Regime.
This is how these clowns operate.
I used to kid around and joke with the ladies around the job and on occasion may make a statement like “You must have a hot date tonight OR are you just getting in from a hot date last night”...in fun, nothing meant or implied.
Ladies are like the ‘famous’ athletes...Let a big ‘star’ come to the local watering hole and those that fawn around them are considered ‘pests’ and those that ignore them were considered ‘aholes’ - at least in the mind of the famous.
When the Supervisors etc were getting in trouble for compliments as well as innuendos, I just took the tack of NOT speaking to anyone in the office - Unless I was spoken to first. Wasn’t to hard for me as I didn’t work in the office but I was a General Superintendent in the field and spent a lot of time in the office.
So now I am saying NOTHING, if you said ‘Good Morning’, I would respond, if you asked me a question, I would politely answer it.
NO comments on the weather, work, life etc etc...
Word came down ‘they’ thought I was creating ‘hostile environment’ so I just didn’t come to the office till after everyone left or before they came in. If the owners ‘beckoned’ me to the office, I would invite him(them) to lunch.
Worked for me BUT I wouldn’t pay for lunch....
“We are wirjubg ib becoming”
Lost me there Bro!
We are. Ever been to Chi-Congo? Notice how many people a week are killed there?
>>We are becoming Venezuela or maybe Zimbabwe<<
Yep. Heading exactly the way I expected, once DADT and DOMA were gone. The persecution of Christians, and the open celebration of faggotry, right in the US Military. This is what you get. And I expect it will go even further downhill from here.
And am I seriously expected to support ‘this’ military?
Purge the Christians and decent folk from the military and leave just atheists and fags. Easier to turn them on us at that point.
Seems like this is the third or so report in the last couple of weeks.
The Prince wants the military to look like TSA. He is succeeding.
Independent Baptists ... yep.
“Purge the Christians and decent folk from the military and leave just atheists and fags. Easier to turn them on us at that point.”
It’ll also be easier for the rest of us to identify our targets: just look for the men wearing camoflauge uniforms with matching Jimmy Choos!
**At issue is Monk’s refusal to reveal his personal views regarding homosexual marriage to his commanding officer. According to a Fox News report, the commander, a lesbian, asked Monk to report on disciplinary proceedings for an Air Force instructor under investigation for making objectionable comments about homosexual marriage during a training session.**
Another reasaon women should not be in the armed forces.
I grew up Catholic...I am trying to find my way to God as an adult, and I think the Baptists are the only ones that appeal to me.
