Anti-Christian, anti-biblical sentiment is increasing across the West. As our culture grows more and more secular, the chasm between what is “Christian” and what is not is becoming more apparent. And those who choose to base their thinking on God’s Word are increasingly being discriminated against, called intolerant and hateful, or even punished for their beliefs.
Christians Not Welcome in the Air Force
The US Air Force has reportedly suspended a decorated colonel, who was due for a promotion to general, because he did not sign a thank-you note to the same-sex “spouse” of a retiring subordinate. It is optional, but not required, to send a certificate of appreciate to the military spouses to thank them for their sacrifice. Colonel Leland Bohannon is a Christian and couldn’t in good conscience endorse same-sex “marriage.” He requested a religious accommodation but never heard back, so he took it upon himself to find another colleague who signed the note for him. Yet the retiring solider still filed a civil rights complaint, and Bohannon was suspended from command.
