Yeah, all sincere Christians are enemies of the state. They will be dealt with by armored vehicles and drones.

Good afternoon.

I guess I'll be going to heaven, with a pile of brass at my feet.

I intend to contact my Congresswoman who is on the House Armed Services Committee and has a long history of evangelical political activism.

If other Freepers have Members of Congress on the House or Senate Armed Services Committee who are conservative evangelicals or Roman Catholics, it would be a good idea to do the same.

Stuff like this can and should be stopped.

SPLC and other such race and ethnic centered organizations are not looking to create a class free, and a race and ethnically blind society.

They want a society where those they deem as chosen get special treatment, special priviledges and special protection such as hate crimes.

Fact: Any crime against another should be a hate crime, but they want to limit special class to only those that are chosen as special. The rest are relegated to 2nd class status.

“It’s as if all the presenter did was download SPLC’s hard drives.”

Out of curiousity was the name and ethnic background of the presenter ever disclosed?

I believe this person is identified as a “she” but this is NOT a mistake by an underling. It fits a pattern.

It's all small groups of special interests and skin colors and (now) sexual orientations. I once held to the idea that we were all green, but I've seen first-hand how that is NOT the case. Hell, I had a (black, female, VERY entitled) major in my ROTC program outright say that's not the case.”

You haven't heard me disagreeing with your points, Future Snake Eater. In fairness, however, there have been groups of people in the Army “looking out” for each other for a very long time ... at least back to the 1950s and 1960s when my father was an NCO, and probably much earlier. I've read stories about how groups of Southerners at West Point made a point of treating the sons of Northern generals horribly during MacArthur's time as a cadet.

I've seen good people get frustrated by that kind of in-group self-protection stuff and get out, not primarily on the racial issue, but on protecting and promoting friends regardless of standards. I'm thinking right now of a West Pointer who would have made a great senior officer, but got so frustrated by nonsense that he got out after his commitment was up and now works for a defense contractor where his abilities are appreciated. Many more examples of his situation could be cited.

What I've heard over and over again, however, is that once military personnel get out, they find situations in corporate life which are as bad if not worse. The Army's problems with political correctness are arguably less serious than those of the corporate world.

Understood. I've seen some bad ones too.

Once again, a link to the PDF: http://www.adfmedia.org/files/ExtremismPresentation.pdf On page 12, it describes terrorist "recruitment" in this way: "LURE PROSPECTS: Quietly talking about individual liberties, states' rights, and how, with your help, they can make the world a better place to live." On page 24, it lists groups under "RELIGIOUS EXTREMISM." #1 - Evangelical Christianity (U.S./Christian) #10 Catholicism (U.S./Christian), ranked only two spots below the Ku Klux Klax.
