Army orders stand-down on anti-Christian
October 28, 2013
Pentagon has announced it's putting a halt to U.S. Army briefings that label
evangelicals and pro-family organizations, including the American Family
Association, as domestic hate groups.
week, the AFA Action
Alert challenged the Army's anti-Christian training at Fort Hood, just as
it did two weeks ago when a similar training session at Camp Shelby listed AFA
as a "domestic hate group."
a pre-deployment briefing last week at Fort Hood, soldiers were told that
evangelical Christians and tea party members are a threat to the
nation. Soldiers were also warned that donating to those groups could subject
them to punishment under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
Army's directive responds directly to AFA's urging that the military stop using
bogus and misleading material supplied by the staunchly anti-Christian Southern
Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
part of the directive, the Pentagon reminds base commanders that it is their
personal responsibility to see that all "trainers" take a
"refresher course" to insure they abide by a strict code and use only
pre-approved resources in their training sessions.
means that renegade "trainers" are strictly prohibited from using the
erroneous fabrications from the SPLC website.
