Anti-Christian Persecution In USAF Thwarted – For Now!


I think quite a few of our American readers responded positively to the petition launched by AFA, which we helped to publicise last year.

So we are delighted to hear that the petition has resulted in a victory for religious liberty.

Please read on!

Victory for Religious Liberty in the U.S. Air Force!

ooooooooooo

AFA urged supporters to sign a petition to reverse Obama’s hostility toward Christians in the Air Force, and the voice of AFA supporters made a difference.

Over 50,000 supporters signed the AFA petition urging Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson to restore the religious liberty of U.S. Air Force Col. Leland Bohannon.

Col. Leland Bohannon was asked in May 2017 to sign a “certificate of spouse appreciation” for a retiring master sergeant in a same-sex “marriage.”

As a devout Christian, Bohannon refused to sign the document stating it would violate his religious belief of marriage being between one man and one woman. As a result, the Air Force suspended the colonel and effectively ended his career.

As a result, “Bohannon was relieved of command. Additionally, a letter sent by a superior officer recommended against Bohannon’s promotion to brigadier general, effectively ending his career.”

But Col. Bohannon’s religious liberty was restored after an appeal to the Air Force Review Boards Agency. Secretary Wilson announced Monday that the Agency ruled in favor of the religious liberty of the colonel saying:

The director [of the Agency] concluded that Colonel Bohannon had the right to exercise his sincerely held religious beliefs and did not unlawfully discriminate when he declined to sign the certificate of appreciation for the same sex spouse of an Airman in his command. (Emphasis added.)

All good.

But this welcome win should not mean decent Americans can relax their guard against those still in senior ranks office who allied themselves with gaystapoid intolerance.

How many of those who sought to drag this honourable officer down have been cashiered, or even demoted?
