Call Congress Now and Urge Justice for Navy Chaplain Wes Modder, Fired for His Beliefs

News Release : Mar 19, 2015  American Family Association

If the Navy does not reverse this injustice, then every chaplain in the military is at risk for the same punishment for following the religious dictates of their conscience.

The following alert was sent out by the American Family Association:

Chaplain Wes Modder is a highly decorated, greatly respected and deeply praised officer serving in the Navy's Chaplain Corps.

His 19-year career has spanned honored assignments such as serving as chaplain of the Navy SEALs. Just a few months ago, Modder's commander called him "the best of the best" and a "consummate professional leader" worthy of an early promotion.

Then came what appears to be a "set-up" by a homosexual activist to destroy the career of Chaplain Modder because of his Biblical view on sexuality and marriage.

In 2014, Modder's assistant, a "married" homosexual, covertly searched through Chaplain Modder’s confidential counseling files and then forwarded pirated copies of them to the Equal Opportunity reps as evidence of "discrimination." In those private counseling sessions, Modder had called homosexuality "sin."

As a result, the base commanding officer at Naval Nuclear Power Training Command, Captain J.R. Fahs, removed him from his unit, told him to clean out his desk and forbade him to minister to the spiritual needs of military personnel.

On appeal, Chaplain Modder reminded Captain Fahs that the Navy upholds the rights of conscience of chaplains and service members afforded in the FY13 and FY14 National Defense Authorization Acts to express their sincerely held beliefs.

For a second time, Captain Fahs denied Chaplain Modder his right to religious liberty!

If the Navy does not reverse this injustice, then every chaplain in the military is at risk for the same punishment for following the religious dictates of their conscience.

Congress has passed laws protecting Chaplain Modder and other chaplains from religious discrimination, yet the Navy is ignoring them.

TAKE ACTION

The time for emailing your elected officials is over. They can simply ignore you or respond with a standard "thanks for writing" letter. And with every passing day, Chaplain Modder and other faithful chaplains continue to face hostility.

Call Congress now and firmly urge them to get personally involved in providing justice for Chaplain Modder. (They work for you!)
