First Liberty law firm sent a letter to the Air Force, asking that they rescind punishment given to Colonel Michael Madrid. Madrid, who has served for 26 years,  is a decorated Air Force veteran, a Naval aviator and a flight surgeon. 

Madrid is accused of making derogatory comments on homosexuality towards a gay airman who was court-martialed over illegally prescribing narcotics in addition to performing duties under the influence. 

In an interview with Breitbart News, Madrid said the following:

“I feel like I’ve been singled out because of my faith. Now I’m afraid if I say anything about even being a Christian, I’ll step on a landmine that could blow up my career.”
