Navy Chaplain Cleared of ‘Intolerance’ Charges After Sharing ‘Biblical View’ on Sexuality

A Navy chaplain whose “biblical viewpoints” on marriage and sexuality landed him in hot water has been exonerated and will be allowed to keep his post, Fox News Insider reports.

A married gay sailor had complained when Navy Chaplain Wes Modder, responding to the sailor’s questions, explained that his Pentecostal faith considered homosexuality to be a sin.

“From my perspective when I’m asked a question about homosexuality, I’m going to give a biblical viewpoint in accordance with my ordaining church, the Assemblies of God,” Modder explained on “Fox and Friends.”

But Modder’s commanding officer recommended that he be relieved of his duties, prevented from career advancement and brought before the Navy’s Board of Inquiry, where he could be discharged. The Navy, however, formally rejected the request and has cleared Modder of all wrongdoing.
