U.S. Army labels Southern Baptist Convention 'hostile'
AFA ^ | 4/25/13 | staff

Posted on 04/24/2013 6:16:06 PM PDT by Nachum

The United States Army has blocked the website of the Southern Baptist Convention from government computers, saying the Christian site contains "hostile content."

An Army officer assigned to a U.S. base said he tried to access SBC.net from his government computer, but instead, he got a message that said the site was being blocked by "Team CONUS": Team CONUS protects the computer network of the Department of Defense.

"So the Southern Baptist Convention is now considered hostile to the U.S. Army...it just corroborates the recent string of events highlighted by AFA," the officer wrote in an email to American Family Association.

This is just another example of the Christian faith coming under attack in the military. Earlier this month, an Army email listed prominent Christian ministries like the Family Research Council and American Family Association as "domestic hate groups."

Actually, it seems that some U.S. Army officers are hostile to the Southern Baptist Convention.

Would appear to be against the 1st amendment prohibitions on blocking religious expression.

My guess would be that much of what is occurring in the military is designed to discourage ‘undesirable’ types from joining.

Well,it fits actually.After all,military veterans were labeled as domestic enemies a few years ago by DHS.Forty plus years ago,when I joined the Army,one of the forms I had to fill out was a questionnaire about membership in potentially dangerous organizations.Groups like the Communist Party and other genuinely subversive groups.Today,the dangerous ones are Southern Baptists,Catholics and veterans.

UN....BLEEPING...BELIEVABLE.

Military chaplains and bibles in the foxhole have a long history. Now because sodomites are celebrated by a corrupt culture, sin has been redefined by the government. That is still prohibited by the First Amendment.

Note to self: when I report in tomorrow try to visit the SBC website.

Note to all: Team CONUS does not protect the “computer network of the Department of Defense.”

CONUS is the “Continental Army of The United States.” They may have blocked CONUS computers, but not all DoD, or even Army computers.

I will report back in the morning.

They’re getting this information from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). A very far Left Wing outfit that labels any and everything conservative a hate group. The SPLC is now a traning contractor for the US government.

Originally hired by “Big Sis” Napolitano, Secretary of Homeland Security, who claimed military veterans were potential terrorists deemed watching by DHS, the SPLC is now training the entire FedGov.

Write your Congressman! The SPLC contract HAS TO GO!

err...LOL!

CONUS is a DOD term for the Continental United States.

And why are CONUS based US Army employees attempting to misuse government computers, surfing non-mission related websites?

If you are CONUS based, you can surf the web on your off duty hours to your hearts content.

Just saying....

Haman was the forerunner of Hitler. He wanted to murder every last Jew.

The Greeks? They wanted the Jews to abandon their god, embraced wanton lust, and openly attacked religious ideas.

I've noticed that all these stories about hostility to Christianity are about the army.

Is the Marine Corp putting out crap like this or is it more or less contained to the army at the moment?

And let the libs take it once and for all? Hell naw! We need to flood the ranks with conservatives and work our way into the upper ranks and decision making levels. Thats how the libs have infested every American institution and it has to be how we take it back.

The military is the greatest American institution. It is absolutely worth defending against the marxists.
