Fox News is owned by Rupert Murdoch who is a Jesuit Knight of Malta. As a Jesuit he has taken an oath to the Pope and to the Catholic Church. He has in the past stated that Rick Warren was his “pastor.”
Quoted in the article is Retired General William “Gerry” Boykin who is also a Jesuit Knight of Malta. Mr. Boykin is a prominent “Christian” speaker at Non-Denominational Churches such as Calvary Chapel, and was investigated by the D.O.D in 2004 for his appearance at multiple Baptist Churches in full military regalia speaking his mind as a “Christian.” He propagates the church body and attempts to militarize them by invoking on their baseline of being “Warriors for Christ.”
Boykin and Murdoch have taken oaths to lie for the Catholic Church and thus should not be trusted. The following story is how it appears on Fox News website:
Airmen say Air Force is punishing evangelical Christians
By Todd Starnes
Todd’s American Dispatch
Published September 30, 2013
“Evangelical Christian airmen at Lackland Air Force Base are facing severe threats and retribution for their religious beliefs and some personnel have been ordered to publicly express their position on gay marriage.
“There is an atmosphere of intimidation at Lackland Air Force Base,” said Steve Branson, the pastor of Village Parkway Baptist Church in San Antonio. “Gay commanders and officers are pushing their agenda on the airmen. There is a culture of fear in the military and it’s gone to a new level with the issue of homosexuality.”
Branson tells me at least 80 airmen attended a private meeting at the church where he heard them voice their concerns about religious hostilities at the Air Force base. It was a standing-room only crowd.
“The religious persecution is happening,” the pastor said. “It’s getting bigger every day. Gay and lesbian airmen can talk about their lifestyle, but the rest have to stay completely quiet about what they believe.”
One airman was told that even thinking that homosexuality is a sin is discriminatory.
Among those at the church meeting was Senior Master Sgt. Phillip Monk. The 19-year veteran was punished after he refused to tell his lesbian commander his position on gay marriage. I was the first reporter to tell his story.
Monk disagreed with his commander when she wanted to severely reprimand a new instructor who had expressed religious objections to homosexuality.
The senior master sergeant was relieved of his duties after he refused her order to disclose his personal opinion about gay marriage.
Monk, who had a spotless record, filed a religious discrimination complaint against the Air Force. When he showed up for a meeting about the complaint, he was accused of giving false statements to me – and was subsequently read his Miranda Rights.
Monk is now facing a possible court martial.
So far, Monk is the only airman willing to go on the record. Others are terrified that they will face similar repercussions. But that’s not stopping them from speaking off-the-record.
“All the guys who are active say they want to speak but they are still afraid because they see what happened to Phillip,” the pastor told me. “Guys who are good men are afraid to do anything because it will hurt them, cost them their career.”
One airman was told that even thinking that homosexuality is a sin is discriminatory.
“A commander told him, ‘Don’t you understand discrimination – that your thought process is discrimination?’” Pastor Branson said. “The commander actually pulled up the definition of discrimination on Wikipedia and read it to him in front of everyone so he would understand what it was.”
The parent of a 19-year-old Christian airman said their son was directed to disclose his religion during Basic Training.
“What’s your religion, little boy?” a master sergeant asked the young man. When he answered “Christian” he had to repeat Basic Training.
One member of the military was written up for having his Bible out – while a Muslim was allowed to publicly display a prayer rug.
A colonel told the pastor that officers are being ordered to publicly affirm and promote homosexuality.
“The colonel told me he hasn’t been asked to do so, but if it did, he would refuse the order,” the pastor said.
“They’re getting mirandized several times a month – but most of the accusations never stick,” Branson tells me. “Branson said he’s getting email and letters from military personnel across the country – telling him their stories of religious persecution – and asking for help.
Gen. Jerry Boykin (ret.) told me he’s not surprised to hear about the assault on religious liberty within the Armed Forces.
“It reinforces what we’ve been saying,” Boykin told me. “There is an orchestrated attack on Christians in the military and at this stage the Air Force is the worst.”
Pastor Branson told me he fears there may soon be a mass exodus of Christians from the military.
“The consensus at our meeting was that if things don’t change, good men will be leaving the military,” he said. “It will be a tragedy for our country and our military.”
As for Master Sgt. Monk – he’s facing what could be a long and difficult road – that could eventually lead to a court martial.
“They picked the wrong guy with Monk,” the pastor said. “This is one good, strong man. He’s willing to pay the price.”
A two-star general called the pastor and urged him to “keep stirring the stick.” But he also made a dire prediction.
“He said Monk will be a casualty of the war,” Branson said. “And the general feared the persecution is going to get worse.”
I’ve had a chance to talk at length with Master Sgt. Monk. He’s a soft-spoken man – an introvert, not a religious zealot. He’s a good-hearted person with a strong sense of right and wrong.
He told me that he was taking a stand because he wanted his sons to see “a man who stands upright and stands for integrity.”
The persecution of Master Sgt. Monk and the countless unnamed individuals at Lackland Air Force Base should serve as a warning to all Americans.
If the Obama administration’s Pentagon can take away their religious liberty – they can take away ours.” End of Quote

This article content was what the pastor of the church I’m currently attending was referring to, which led to my contacting him to inform him that Ret. Gen. William Gerry Boykin is a Jesuit. This article is poignant if true. If Christian Airmen are being persecuted and threatened with dismissal for believing that homosexuality is a sin then this is atrocious and only evidence of a further impending persecution of Christians in America. Boykin ( a professing “Conservative Christian”) and Murdoch (a professing Christian who also owns porn publications among other news venues) have both taken an oath to the Pope and the Catholic church. [link not an endorsement]Consequently the current Jesuit Pope appears to be opening the door to homosexuals and atheists lately. What purpose is it to “warn” the church (Christian body of believers) of persecution when they are objecting to behavior and sin that the Catholic Church is rewriting as permissible under God? What would be the advantage of these people to draw attention to such a “persecution” of Christians? Is it to better identify the dissenters? People like Boykin and Murdoch are going to fold when push comes to shove and fall in line with the Pope and whatever the “mother church” declares. They will be good lil soldiers for the Jesuit Pope and keep the facade going as long as it suits their end game. But that doesn’t touch the topic of whether or not US military men and women are truly being persecuted for believing the Bible, God’s Word, over the State run pagan societal religion. The article states that the men are “afraid,” they don’t want to lose their “careers.” That’s pretty lame if you ask me. Where’s the faith in God’s provision? Where’s the faith to stand up for Christ above ‘man?’ Is it that easy to compromise a Christian? Will the goats be that easy to recognize? Will the sheep have to suffer unemployment, danger in worshiping publicly the God who redeemed them from their sin? Will the state finally take center stage as the God hating institution that it really is? There have been Christians praying for revival with great angst since the attack on September 11th 2001. I’ve been to those prophesy conferences, I’ve handed out the CD’s and Mp3’s of false teachers and false prophets claiming that America is inherently good and Christian. Since recognizing the false teachers I’ve repented and have done my up most to warn against them with as much zeal as I once promoted them.
I’ve recognized the hand writing on the wall long ago. America doesn’t want God, America doesn’t want to repent and do what’s Holy in the sight of a Holy God. America wants the freedom to be pagan, to practice abominations in the sight of the LORD, and America will reap what she sows as a consequence. The American Christian church, it’s body of believers, has been compromised long ago and the roosters are coming home to roost. The real believers will stand up and they will suffer. We are promised trials and persecutions.
