Again: US Army Officer Describes Mainstream Christian Groups as Extremists
pj tattler ^ | 4/10/13 | Bryan Preston

Posted on 04/10/2013 11:54:15 AM PDT by Nachum

Last week we reported on the Army EEO briefing that described evangelical Christians and Catholics as “extremists” alongside the likes of the KKK and al Qaeda. That incident occurred in Pennsylvania. Today, Todd Starnes reports that an Army officer at Ft. Campbell, KY sent an email to subordinates using similar descriptions and epithets.

“Just want to ensure everyone is somewhat educated on some of the groups out there that do not share our Army Values,” read an email from LTC Jack Rich to three dozen subordinates at Fort Campbell in Kentucky. “When we see behaviors that are inconsistent with Army Values, don’t just walk by – do the right thing and address the concern before it becomes a problem.”

Among the groups that LTC Rich says “do not share our Army Values” in his 14-page email are the Family Research Council and the American Family Association.

“Just want to ensure everyone is somewhat educated on some of the groups out there that do not share our Army Values...”

By “our Army values”, he no doubt means sucking up to hussein’s butt.

What he should have said was “our army careerist chair polisher creed of kissing politicians’ *sses to get that next promotion.”

Prey tell, what are "Army Values"?

Are they different from American Values as defined by our Forefathers?

If so, then we really need to know what they are!

It would be interesting to learn personal details about this LTC Jack Rich. He is far out of step with the values of this country.

“Army Values” now includes the promotion of anal intercourse, cross-dressing, and queer circle-jerks. Army hospitals will soon be doing sex-change operations at the taxpayers expense. I am getting to the point of not supporting the military or police anymore, since both institutions are becoming denizens of lefty purveyors of perversion.

Pressing for open homosexuality in the military serves one, and only one, purpose ... to give God-fearing Christians in the military incentive to self-deport themselves out of the military, so as to provide Obama's handlers the opportunity to fill those ranks with individuals who have no such religious conviction and therefore feel military services is "just another job". Once the big guns are out of the hands of those with a conscience, and into the hands of those willing to do unconscionable things, the field is groomed for a coup. Christians, beware.

The religious right in America has employed a variety of strategies in its efforts to beat back the increasingly confident gay rights movement,” the officer wrote. “One of those has been defamation.”

The officer accused the “Christian Right” of “engaging in the crudest type of name-calling, describing LGBT people as ‘perverts” with ‘filthy habits’ who seek to snatch the children of straight parents and ‘convert’ them to gay sex,” he wrote.

So now the overriding purpose of the U.S. Military is to promote the gay agenda, and destroy anyone who opposes it?

Seems that way.

in an unrelated video you can see who this LTC Jack Rich is...

so sad to see how some military personnel are blindly embracing the social experiments being mandated by the liberal left whose ultimate goal is the downfall of our country. Happening across all the services I am sure...

Sounds like we’ve allowed muslims in our Army. Muslims do not and can never accept anything American. Mohammad the child molester in his book will not allow it. Their intent is to overthrow this Judeo/Christian nation.

“Their intent is to overthrow this Judeo/Christian nation.”

And the army is certainly good training for that.

The bastard officers need to get their behinds kicked out of the service. There is no one who exemplifies military service more than Christians. And did I say these officers are bastards? They are.

LTC’s do’t make policy so we can probably safely assume he’s spouting the attitude from on high.

Good guess. How in the heck does a Battalion Commander find the time to type out a 14 page email?

There's got to be at least one officer out there who will take this up the chain of command under the category "exerting undue command influence".

I’m picturing LTC Jack Rich as likely one of Colonel Lindsey Graham’s “type” of Army officer. Likely an effete career ticket puncher who adds little of real value to either the Army or his country—a careerist who will trim his sails to take advantage of whichever way the winds are blowing.

Just wait until the homos do the Army what our precious negros did.

They corrupted it into just another social support program. Any black can kill the career of a white officer with a made up EEO complaint. It’s far from the meritocracy it use to be.

The best way to get to the bottom of this is a few, simple questions for the post commander at Fort Campbell. Via the Public Affairs Officer.

1) Is this officer under your command, and is this email alleged to be his genuine?

2) If this is the case, how soon do you intend to relieve this officer of his command? Bigotry, religious hatred and the advocacy of the deprivation of civil rights to American citizens is intolerable behavior on the part of a US Army Officer.

The main number for the Public Affairs office is (270) 798-3025 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on weekdays.

Attn: COL David L. Dellinger, Garrison Commander

Attachment: Email alleged to have been promulgated by one LTC King, to his subordinates.

I had US Army Basic training at Ft.Campbell Ky. -June.1969—
Later I was stationed there taking care of the Puking Buzzards. but Army Values were different then. we trained with respect for Gen.George Washington and were encouraged to do as he encouraged his Army do “to so live and act as becomes a Christian soldier” I don’t know what little red Schoolhouse the infidel Ltc.Rich attended. but the Point—back I was on active duty would not have tolerated his CRAP/And I really don’t think he wants to get in any pissin match with Lt.Gen Jerry Boykin-over whose values are greater.I seem to recall Mr. Boykin once told someone “Our God is greater.” Still true no matter what kafir one is talking to.

“...do the right thing and address the concern before it becomes a problem.”

Sounds a lot like “But if you want real change...then I need you. I need you to go out and talk to your friends, talk to your neighbors...I want you to argue with them, get in their faces...you guys are the ones who can make the change.”

I’m too cheap to upgrade my LinkedIn account so that I can send LTC Rich a LinkMail, but I am sorely tempted to so that I could ask him how he can believe what he has written, let alone seek to coerce subordinates, while upholding the Code of Conduct?

He is also a Boy Scout Den leader (Cub Scouts?) Who more closely follows the Scout Code, the current POTUS, Pentagon Civilian leaders or the FRC & AFA?

Scout Oath
On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.

Scout Law
A Scout is:
Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful,
Friendly, Courteous, Kind,
Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty,
Brave, Clean, Reverent

Wake up Colonel!

Courage is needed, not only when under fire, but moral courage to stand up to immoral superiors.

Are you a courageous man?

Are you a moral man?
