Investors Business Daily weighed in on how the Pentagon is becoming more and more anti-Christian these days.
PC Amok: A congressman asks why emails describe supporters of traditional marriage as members of hate groups while the Pentagon vets a religious tolerance guide with a group that compares Christian evangelism to “rape.”
When Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel recently appeared before Congress, he was grilled by Rep. Randy Forbes, R-Va., about an email sent by an officer at Fort Campbell, Ky., to three dozen subordinates, warning them to be on the lookout for soldiers connected with “domestic hate groups.”
Among the groups listed in the 14-page email by Lt. Col. Frank Rich, the Second Battalion, 506th Infantry Regiment Commander at Fort Campbell, were Christian organizations such as the American Family Association and Family Research Council (FRC), immigration reform groups such as the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), and Atlas Shrugs, run by Pamela Geller and monitoring global jihadist activity.
Officers are advised to look for uniformed members of these groups, described as anti-gay, anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim.
The email listed the groups alongside actual extremist and hate groups such as neo-Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan and other supremacist gangs.
The list of “hate” groups in the email appears to be based on one compiled by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Read the whole thing. I’ve been wanting to get to this for a few days but there just aren’t enough hours in the day to get to everything.
