From Fox News:
An Army chaplain’s assistant said she was accused of creating a “hostile and antagonistic” environment after she posted a message on her personal Facebook page calling homosexuality a sin.
The soldier, who asked not to be identified, said her commander ordered her to either remove the Facebook message or face a reduction in rank and pay.
“I haven’t taken it down and I won’t take it down,” she told Fox News. “It is frustrating that people are trying to silence me – for something that I believe in. We fight for the freedom that I can’t enjoy right now. That’s not right.”
The soldier, who is an evangelical Christian, said she returned home from church on Sunday and was watching a documentary about a minister who endorsed homosexuality.
“I was frustrated with what I saw so I posted a Facebook message about it,” she said.
So while it seems homosexuals now have a “right” to be open about their immoral sexual behavior, good military servicemen and women no longer have the First Amendment-protected right of freedom of religious expression. Interesting…but not surprising.
I spent 10 years in the military, and I was a law enforcement specialist charged with enforcing military law, so I think I’m a pretty good judge of what is right and legal in the military. During my service, it was legal in the military to get drunk (as long as you didn’t break any laws in connection with that drunkenness). There were plenty of people in the military who believed getting drunk was a sin, and some of them said so. I don’t recall a single drunk claiming that for someone to say being drunk was a sin, this created “an environment that was both hostile and antagonistic.” I don’t recall a single time when a person of character stated that a bad behavior was wrong, and the person of character was reprimanded for pointing to a high standard of moral excellence.
Now, not only must military personnel of good character tolerate open homosexuality in our armed forces, they cannot even repeat what the Bible says about it.
Apparently, once again, homosexual activists get special rights. It isn’t enough to merely be allowed to be open about sodomizing one another within the ranks of the military; no one must be allowed to say anything critical of this behavior.
Many of us knew even before a Democrat Congress and White House forced this on the military that it would create a hostile environment for anyone who believes in sexual morality and normality. It was clear, and liberals went to extra lengths to make it clear, that in a conflict between moral and immoral people, the military leadership preferred the immoral over the moral.
As is always the case, two diametrically opposed value systems can never and will never be able to peacefully coexist. One will naturally dominate, and unless the morally superior one possesses resolve, the morally inferior one will usually employ any means necessary to subjugate the other one.
As the Boy Scouts are in the process of learning, compromising with and capitulating to homosexual activists looks a lot like the European powers of the 1930s trying to “be reasonable” with Adolf Hitler. “If we give you this, you’ll be satisfied, right? Oh, you want that, too? Okay…now you want this other…okay…and now you want…” Get the picture?
If good people don’t rise up and demand an end to this right away, we will all be very, very sorry before long.
