|A U.S. Air Force chaplain who ministers to thousands of men and women at an Ohio base is asserting that Christians in the U.S. Armed Forces “serve Satan” and are “grossly in error” if they support service members' right to practice other faiths. |
Captain Sonny Hernandez, an Air Force Reserve chaplain for the 445th Airlift Wing at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio, criticized Christian service members who rely on the Constitution “and not Christ.”
|“Christian service members who openly profess and support the rights of Muslims, Buddhists, and all other anti-Christian worldviews to practice their religions are grossly in error, and deceived. Counterfeit Christians in the Armed forces will appeal to the Constitution, and not Christ means they have no accountability for their souls (Heb. 13:17)". |
A retired Air Force officer says Hernandez is evidence of the trickle-down effect of President Donald Trump's relationship with the far fringes of the Christian right.
