Navy Chaplain Threatened with Discharge for Counsel Against Sexual Immorality Exonerated

CHARLESTON, S.C. — A decorated former Navy SEAL who has served as a chaplain for 15 of the 19 years of his military career has been exonerated of wrongdoing after being threatened with discharge when superiors called his Christian counseling against premarital sex and homosexuality a “recipe for disaster.”

As previously reported, last December, several sailors allegedly filed complaints against Chaplain Wes Modder, a 19 year decorated military veteran with 15 years in the chaplaincy, stating that he was guilty of discrimination for the way that he had provided counsel regarding issues of sexual morality.

In a “detachment for cause” letter dated Feb. 17, Navy Capt. Jon Fahs, NNPTC commander, branded Modder as being “intolerant and “unable to function in the diverse and pluralistic environment.”

For being “equal”, :cool: and really “great and powerful filled with love,” there sure is a lot of insecurity surrounding so-called gay “marriage”…

Hurray for Justice, Chaplain Wes Modder has been
vindicated, and rightly so!!!

The title of this is confusing. Was immorality exonerated? :shrug:
