The U.S. Army listed Evangelical Christianity and Catholicism as examples of religious extremism along with Al Qaeda and Hamas during a briefing with an Army Reserve unit based in Pennsylvania, Fox News has learned.
We find this offensive to have Evangelical Christians and the Catholic Church to be listed among known terrorist groups, said Ron Crews, executive director of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty. It is dishonorable for any U.S. military entity to allow this type of wrongheaded characterization.
The incident occurred during an Army Reserve Equal Opportunity training brief on extremism. Topping the list is Evangelical Christianity. Other organizations listed included Catholicism, Al Qaeda, Hamas, the Ku Klux Klan, Sunni Muslims, and Nation of Islam.

Now that this has come to light, I'm sure they'll be quick to correct this by removing the Nation of Islam from the watch list.
Seems the issue has already been addressed, the offending content corrected, and the idiot who wrote it told what the military is for. Details in duplicate thread.
I wonder if anyone read the article. It does not support the headline at all. The story says that the instructor produced the slide, based on internet research that did not reflect Army policy. So, which is correct, the story or the headline? Both cannot be.
I suspect that the instructor was a contractor and that no one bothered to check the instructional materials. My experience with the Equal Opportunity program and with those involved with it is not good. These folks just aren’t very bright and they bring to their jobs very fuzzy notions of what equal opportunity means, except of course that’s is all about how evil America, its institutions, and white people in general are.
Just a probe. Testing the perimeter.
Oh jeez, now I have to have a shot of JD since you mentioned "perimeter". That is from the old days of "24" where they mentioned perimeter about four times each show and all those on the Dave Barry blog had this thing going.
Exactly. Just like when Stephanopoulos asked Romney his take on birth control during the primary and we were all wondering where the heck that came from.
Next thing we know we have Sandra Fluck demanding free birth control for everyone.
This is how it starts.
Obumma and his Godless band of murderers are scared sh!less over anyone or group who would dare to bow to a God higher than the almighty O. He deserves no reverence and no
His God is allah who was a despot and pervert who seemingly taught hate. 0 will die a sad and painful death. Soon, I hope.
He has been questioning members of his military whether they would fire on citizens if asked to do so. I suspect he has been disturbed by the answers (NO, hell no, FUBO, get serious, no way Jose, bite me, not now; not ever; never!!!!)
I can’t imagine that, not including some blacks and haters of honkeys, he would get 10% yes.
If they included the Shia their heads would be cut off already.
