That is, until 2014, when the Navy abruptly removed Modder from its promotion list, detached him from his unit, and brought him before a board of inquiry—imperiling his pension and benefits. The reason? Modder had offered Biblical views on sexuality during private counseling sessions, including with his male assistant, whom Modder did not know was married to another man. After a legal battle, Modder avoided being fired and was able to retire from the service last year with an honorable discharge.
Stutzman explained in an op-ed this November that she and the plaintiff, Rob Ingersoll, had been friends for years and she never refused his design requests – until he asked her to create floral arrangements for his nuptials.

She asked the court to uphold her constitutional rights.
