Several dozen U.S. Army active duty and reserve troops were told last week that the American Family Association, a well-respected Christian ministry, should be classified as a domestic hate group because the group advocates for traditional family values.Well. We've certainly seen this before. And it adds to a growing body of evidence that the powers that be consider certain groups a threat. Enough of a threat to highlight them in human-relations / equal opportunity
The briefing was held at Camp Shelby in Mississippi and listed the AFA alongside domestic hate groups like the Ku Klux Klan, Neo-Nazis, the Black Panthers and the Nation of Islam.
“The instructor said AFA could be considered a hate group because they don’t like gays,” the soldier told me. “The slide was talking about how AFA refers to gays as sinners and heathens and derogatory terms.” The soldier, who is an evangelical Christian, said the chaplain defended the Christian ministry. He kept asking the instructor, ‘Are you sure about that, son? Are you sure about that?’” he said, recalling the back and forth.
Later in the briefing, the soldiers were reportedly told that they could face punishment for participating in organizations that are considered hate groups.
I contacted the Pentagon for an answer but they referred me to Army public affairs. And so far – they haven’t returned my calls.
By the way, these are the sorts of words classified as hateful by the Army. AFA President Tim Wildmon writes:
The truth is that the American Family Association doesn’t hate anyone. We love everyone, including homosexuals, enough to tell them the truth about the moral, spiritual, and physical dangers of homosexual conduct. Disagreement about the normalizing of homosexual behavior is not hate; it is simply disagreementThis folks is what life under empowered liberalism looks like. Thou shalt have no other gods before liberalism. Or else you'll be punished and/or re-educated until you recant.
