A 19-year Air Force veteran who was relieved of his duties because he disagreed with his openly gay commander over gay marriage is now facing a formal investigation after he told me his story.
When they passed the new measures permitting gay-marriage did anyone think it was going to slide by?
They're not targeting Christians - they're simply doing away with people who are overstepping the boundaries.
What - because they're religious they get a free pass to say whatever they want but everyone else isn't allowed to? I don't think so. He should have refused - or gone about the conversation with more stealth. Instead, he chose to be a martyr of sorts. :shrug: He didn't have to.
Talking about homosexuality being right or wrong can create a hostile working enviornment. There are subjects in the military that you just don't voice your opinions out loud over period. The military doesn't practice democracy and there are ways you are supposed to act professionally.
This person was repremanded for creating a hostile work enviornment and I would support repremanding an individual if they were to voice that homosexuality is correct. It's irrelevent and impedes the mission at hand.
Yes, apparently trying to be respectful to your fellow man isn't taught in some Sunday schools. . . I emphasize the some because I know a lot of religious people don't have this issue.
Then they shouldn't have repealed don't ask don't tell. It's a two way street.
Sorry, but no. The same thing would happen if someone said whites shouldn't marry blacks. You should conduct yourself in a professional manner and yes that means not creating a hostile work environment.
Did you read the entire article? He was asked for his view.
If I'm not mistake the article said he was asked for his view. Gays are ridiculous in these situations. Absolutely ridiculous. "Political correctness" give me a break.
Gays? What do gays have anything to do with this? The man is being charged by the US military, our men and women in uniform, for making false statements, i.e. "lying."If I'm not mistake the article said he was asked for his view. Gays are ridiculous in these situations. Absolutely ridiculous. "Political correctness" give me a break.
You'll have to ask the prosecutors for the specific statement, as from your source, "Last week, Monk was supposed to meet with an Air Force investigator tasked with gathering facts about the complaint. But when he arrived, Monk was immediately read his Miranda Rights and accused of providing false statements in a conversation Monk had with me."What was the false statement?
