Transgender airman:
‘I would like to see them try to
kick me out of my military’

Wednesday, July 26, 2017

After President Trump’s surprise announcement Wednesday barring transgender people from serving “in any capacity“ in the military, one prominent transgender airman said he’s more determined than ever to continue serving in the Air Force. 

“I would like to see them try to kick me out of my military,” Staff Sgt. Logan Ireland said in an interview with Air Force Times. ”I would challenge them [in court]. You are not going to deny me my right to serve my country when I am fully qualified and able and willing to give my life.”

Other transgender service members expressed the same determination to stay in uniform in interviews with Military Times. [...]

The Glaring Double Standards Of The Air Force’s Most Homophobic, ‘Bible-Believing’ Chaplain

Friday, July 21, 2017

Recently, an Army chaplain, [Captain Erick Barrett] performing his assigned duty, gave a policy briefing to the soldiers in his unit on the Army’s new policies on transgender soldiers

But now Chaplain Barrett has incurred the wrath of Captain Sonny Hernandez, a “Bible-believing” Air Force Reserve chaplain, prolific anti-LGBT blogger — and self-appointed arbiter of what all other Christian military chaplains should do and say.
