Air Force punishes Christian even though probe cleared him

U.S. Air Force officials at Joint Base San Antonio in Texas have been warned by a law firm that they need to withdraw punitive notations from an officer’s personnel file concerning his view of homosexual behavior or face legal action, because they were added on the whim of another officer.An investigation by the military had cleared Air Force Col. Michael Madrid of a claim that he made derogatory statements about homosexuality. The complaint had been submitted by a homosexual airman who was court-martialed and found guilty of serious misconduct prompting his removal from the service.Madrid, a decorated Air Force veteran, former Naval aviator and flight surgeon who has served America’s defense forces for 26 years, is a Christian who believes that marriage is the sacred union of a man and a woman.But a thorough Air Force investigation found the allegations unsubstantiated, cleared Madrid of charges and closed the investigation.Read the WND book that inspired the film, “Ride the Thunder: A Vietnam War Story of Honor and Triumph” – autographed at the WND Superstore!Then, however, a new commander, Maj. Gen. John E. McCoy “without any new evidence or new investigation … arbitrarily decided that Madrid had lied during the investigation and was guilty of the airman’s accusation of making derogatory comments about homosexuality,” according to a letter from First Liberty Institute to base commander Maj. Gen. Mark Brown insisting that McCoy’s “letter of admonishment” and “unfavorable information file” be removed.
