Chaplain Wes Modder 620x300A recently retired U.S. Navy chaplain says his fight against the military shows how the armed forces have become hostile to Christianity.

"If you're a Christian and you come into the military today," says Wes Modder, "it's going to be difficult for you."

Modder learned that lesson when the Navy tried to fire him last year after sailors claimed he harassed them with conservative views on homosexuality and marriage. The chaplain faced a "Detachment for Cause" over the allegations but an investigation, citing weak evidence against him, cleared Modder and reinstated him last fall.

Modder told OneNewsNow recently that a liberal United Methodist chaplain also sought to punish her Pentecostal counterpart for his non-PC views. 

The Military Times reported that a "high-level review" rejected the recommendation to fire Modder, allowing him to retire in good standing with 20 years of service.

Modder tells OneNewsNow that it's a "new reality" that Christians will be attacked for their beliefs if they remain in uniform.

Modder says the White House sets the tone, since it "championed"  homosexual marriage and lit the White House in the so-called rainbow colors.

"Our leaders have done abominable things in the sight of God," Modder warns.
