“Major Valenzuela asked SMSgt. Monk if he could agree with her belief that openly voicing a religious or moral opposition to same-sex marriage is discrimination,” the official complaint reads. “Because of SMSgt. Monk’s sincerely held religious belief, he could not agree with the major. As a direct result, Major Valenzuela immediately relieved SMSgt. Monk from his First Sergeant duties and reassigned him to a different unit.”Frankly, I'm enjoying the turnabout here. One allegation of discrimination is being fought with another allegation of discrimination. Which religion will prevail? The one present before time began? Or the far newer religion of Liberalism and the homosexuals it sanctifies?
Monk was also banned from returning to his unit’s building and required special permission to retrieve his personal belongings.
Liberty Institute attorney Michael Berry said the major’s actions are a violation of the law.
“Your conduct constitutes unlawful discrimination,” Berry wrote in a letter to the major. “According to Department of Defense Directive 1020.02, unlawful discrimination against individuals or groups based on religion is contrary to good order and discipline, counterproductive to combat readiness and mission accomplishment, and shall not be condoned.”
