Army Email Labels Christian Ministries as “Domestic Hate Groups”
 
Army Email Labels Christian Ministries as “Domestic Hate Groups”

By Todd Starnes

A U.S. Army officer sent an email to dozens of subordinates listing the American Family Association and Family Research Council as “domestic hate groups” because they oppose homosexuality — and warned officers to monitor soldiers who might be supporters of the groups.

“Just want to ensure everyone is somewhat educated on some of the groups out there that do not share our Army Values,” read an email from Lt. Col. Jack Rich to three dozen subordinates at Fort Campbell in Kentucky. “When we see behaviors that are inconsistent with Army Values – don’t just walk by – do the right thing and address the concern before it becomes a problem.”

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, told Fox News he was disturbed by the contents of the email.

“It’s very disturbing to see where the Obama Administration is taking the military and using it as a laboratory for social experimentation — and also as an instrument to fundamentally change the culture,” he said. “The message is very clear – if you are a Christian who believes in the Bible, who believes in transcendent truth, there is no place for you in the military.”

The Army denied there is any attack on Christians or those who hold religious beliefs.

“The notion that the Army is taking an anti-religion or anti-Christian stance is contrary to any of our policies, doctrines and regulations,” said George Wright, Army spokesman at the Pentagon. “Any belief that the Army is out to label religious groups in a negative manner is without warrant.”

Wright said they are checking into the origin of the email. At this point it’s unclear who ordered the email to be sent and why.

The 14-page email documented groups the military considers to be anti-gay, anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim. Among the other groups mentioned are Neo-Nazis, Racist Skinheads, White Nationalists and the Ku Klux Klan.

The Family Research Council and the American Family Association were listed as being anti-gay.

“The religious right in America has employed a variety of strategies in its efforts to beat back the increasingly confident gay rights movement,” the officer wrote. “One of those has been defamation.”

The officer accused the “Christian Right” of “engaging in the crudest type of name-calling, describing LGBT people as ‘perverts” with ‘filthy habits’ who seek to snatch the children of straight parents and ‘convert’ them to gay sex,” he wrote.

Last week, Fox News reported that an Army training instructor told a Reserve unit based in Pennsylvania that Evangelical Christianity and Catholicism were examples of religious extremism. The Army categorized that episode as an isolated incident......

It is interesting now that opposition to the gay agenda has morphed from "intolerance" (which was totally laughable on it's own merits) to now "defamation". Seriously, defamation. You can't make this stuff up. The Left has gone totally batshit and they're infecting our armed forces now. They will eat & destroy every last organization they can.


They are life's termites.

"The Left" = one guy sent an e-mail

And it was an e-mail that said the Family Research Council and the American Family Association are anti-gay. GASP! Why, I've never seen such a baseless accusation in my whole entire life! LMAO

They are groups. They are domestic. They hate gays.
Not sure what the issue is here.

Basically, it just seems like you really want to be outraged because one guy sent an e-mail bashing a couple of anti-gay groups. :cuss:

The FRC is a hate group. They aren't the WBC, but they promote some of the same ideas.

http://www.frc.org/human-sexuality#homosexuality

Quote:

FRC does not consider homosexuality, bi-sexuality, and transgenderism as acceptable alternative lifestyles or sexual "preferences"; they are unhealthy and destructive to individual persons, families, and society. Compassion compels us to support the healing of those who wish to change their destructive behavior.
Quote:

In February 2010, the Family Research Council's Senior Researcher for Policy Studies, Peter Sprigg, stated on NBC's Hardball that gay behavior should be outlawed and that "criminal sanctions against homosexual behavior" should be enforced.

What exactly are you calling BS? Two of those three are quite obvious. What, are they actually based in Canada or something?

If this article was responsible journalism, it would give us more evidence that what the author said was what FOX says that he said. It's short on quotes and long on manufactured outrage.

Also, once you click on that link, Todd Starnes's obvious bias hits you like a baseball bat.
