Its about dang time this happens. Heck, just last week evangelical Christians were once again lumped in with extremists at Fort Hood. And a few weeks ago it happened at Camp Shelby. You cant tell me there isnt some mastermind behind these briefings. After all, we know the Obama administration is replacing commanders in the military with ones who agree with them. Which means radicals.
FOX NEWS The Secretary of the Army has ordered military leaders to halt all briefings on extremist organizations that labeled Evangelical Christian groups as domestic hate groups. The shutdown comes just four days after I reported exclusively about a briefing at Mississippis Camp Shelby that labeled the American Family Association as a domestic hate group.
On several occasions over the past few months, media accounts have highlighted instances of Army instructors supplementing programs of instruction and including information or material that is inaccurate, objectionable and otherwise inconsistent with current Army policy, Army Sec. John McHugh wrote to military leaders in a memorandum I obtained.

I wonder who ordered this.
Great. They stopped it. Now who’s going to be fired???
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
The fact that this training program existed at all is frightening. Also tells me it will be back in less noticeable and subtle form in the future.
Cool,,, Time now to purge officers who have embarrassed the state,,,
“I’m back in the USSR,,,,”.
I’ll believe it when I see the order for it.
It’s time for Congress to have a few hearings about commie fags in the military. It doesn’t seem to be working out.
I don’t know. I wonder if Allen West will have anything on his new website about this.
That and the fact that Obama seems to be decapitating the military brass is the writing on the wall.
Connect the dots.
I wasn’t aware that Allen West had a new website. I’ll check it out.
Now I understand why Obama is so willing to use drones within the US. It will target the new domestic terrorists, Evangelical Christians & tea party patriots.
I believe that these people are getting their instructional material online, probably pointed there by their activist colleagues in the EO community. Things like this can take on a life of their own, fueled by zealots who believe that what they are doing will meet with the approval of their political masters. It will need to be stamped out again and again as it is not going to go away.
After all, we know the Obama administration is replacing commanders in the military with ones who agree with them.
This point is incorrect. We don't know this and there is no evidence that shows this to be true. The examples cited are of the type and number that occur historically. Senior leaders, from time to time have zipper problems, drink too much, gamble, run their ships aground, and abuse their positions of privilege and authority. It's much worse among the political class, of course, since they are seldom sacked by the voters, especially if they are Democrats.
It is hard for me to imagine any military training being provided where the lesson plan was not approved by a senior officer.
This just does not pass the smell test.
Thanks very much, sheik...
As someone who has studied history, especially WWII, I have already connected the dots and things are not looking good.
I suspect the one who put this in place at the get-go was the same who pushed through the pro-homosexual program and the sensitivity training for the wussification of the Armed Forces.(FNU Johnson). He is gone now, taking over Homeland Security. Ain’t it great!! (sarc)
“Onward Christians Soldiers, marching as to War - - - “
BTW, “Onward” is such a much better word than “Forward.”
The people who came up with this program should be hung.
Mikey “Tough Guy Look at My Extended Fist in My Official Photo” Weinstein is doing a real dam-damn on the Air Force, accusing anyone who does Christian witness of a hate crime.
Anyway, this is nothing less than shining a flashlight on cockroaches. It works, and needs to be done more often.
We’re not East Germany, at least not yet.
It should come as no surprise that something like this exists. When a leading officer proudly says (in response to the Fort Hood massacre) that if the military were to have less diversity (specificially fewer Muslims)as a result of the massacre, then that would be worse than the massacre itself...then outrageous anti-Christian programs like this are to be expected.
The trouble with most Christians (including myself) is that they are not extreme enough. If God is real (which He is) and if he sent His Son for me (which He did) and if believing this allows the possibility of me entering heaven (which it does) then we ought to be doing extreme backflips and cartwheels. We ought to be the most dangerous people on the planet - and not because we are the best armed but because our life,our kingdom, is not of this world and our thinking is dangerous to the general order of things.
I get exasperated with myself - when will the reality of the truth fully sink in!
Just because they canceled the training program doesn’t mean that its Not policy still.
Indeed. Who cooked this up?
I understand where you are coming from but does God want us to go and clean up these radicals by being radical ourselves?
Dear Leader is one minute humiliating and the next minute brainwashing the military in the hope that someday, when ordered to, they will kill American citizens. He’ll be as successful at managing our war machine as he has been in managing foreign policy, the economy, healthcare, etc., etc.
Yes, I also would like to see official DoD orders to stop persecuting Christians
Depends what you call radical - I think just different and separate not using their schemes and lack of ethics but rather standing out as being Christian and being happy about it!
I told a civilian I work with about this. he just shrugged and said, “it’s just what the government does”. He gave me a really funny look when I asked him what one cow said to another while standing in line. “It’s just what the slaughterhouse does”.
Finally some good news
