A religious liberty law firm sent a letter Wednesday demanding the Air Force rescind its punishment against Colonel Michael Madrid, who was targeted for his traditional beliefs on marriage.

In the letter, attorneys from the firm First Liberty argued that the Air Force needs to drop its politically correct attack on Madrid, or face legal action.

“Colonel Madrid is the latest victim of the extreme political correctness that is destroying our military,” Mike Berry, director of military affairs for First Liberty Institute, said. “The military should never discriminate against a service member because of his religious beliefs.”

Madrid, who is a Christian, has a long-standing history in the military as a decorated Air Force veteran, a Naval aviator and a flight surgeon. He’s served for 26 years.

As such, Madrid believes that the definition of marriage is the union of one man and one woman.

But in 2014, when a homosexual airman who worked with Madrid was court-martialed over illegally prescribing narcotics and performing duties under the influence of narcotics, among other charges, the airman tried to accuse of Madrid of derogatory comments on homosexuality.

Madrid said he never made such comments and cooperated with a subsequent Air Force investigation, in which he explained in detail that he holds to traditional marriage. Investigators then closed the case, declaring the allegations unsubstantiated.
