The Army's recent warning about Christians and tea party members sounds like something straight out of a communist manifesto.
Soldiers from Ft. Hood said they were warned not to donate to those groups because they would be subject to punishment under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
The Washington Times reports, "the briefing was Oct. 17, and about a half-hour of it was devoted to discussion about how perceived radical groups — like tea party organizations and the Christian-based American Family Association — were “tearing the country apart,” one unnamed soldier said."
The soldier's name has been withheld because of his fear of retribution. He also said soldiers were told that the pro-life movement is another example of “radicalization.”
Fox News reports another soldier attending the meeting confirmed the threat of punishment was made. According to the report the public affairs office at Fort Hood is denying the soldiers' allegations. Both of the soldiers alerted the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty.
The Liberty Institute's Michael Berry is advising the unnamed soldier about the options available to him. The American public should be on guard because this is disconcerting and leaves one to wonder what is coming next.
Mr. Berry told Fox News, "these statements about evangelicals being domestic enemies are a serious charge.” According to the report most of the briefing dealt with the supposed threat that evangelicals and tea party members posed to America. The soldier reported that "barely a word was said about Islamic extremism."
It is beyond belief that the Army is teaching those who are supposed to defend our nation that Evangelical Christians and tea party members are now considered enemies of the state. It should be an outrage to Americans that this is unfolding in our nation right now.
In April, Breitbart.com reported that the Pentagon was "tapping" known atheist Mikey Weinstein for advice on new policies concerning religious tolerance in the military. One of his policies includes, "court-martialing military chaplains who share the Christian Gospel during spiritual counseling of American troops."
Weinstein is virulently opposed to Christians and their beliefs. He said in a column he wrote for the Huffington Post:
"Today, we face incredibly well-funded gangs of fundamentalist Christian monsters who terrorize their fellow Americans by forcing their weaponized and twisted version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates in our nation’s armed forces.”
It's obvious that Mr. Weinstein has "a visceral hatred of conservative Christians." He has compared the sharing of the gospel akin to "spiritual rape." This is the man that the Obama administration is looking to "craft new policies for religious tolerance in our military."
He has also said sharing the gospel is akin to racism, bigotry and prejudice. According to him this threatens the national security of our beautiful nation. His extreme hatred of Christians is evident when he said:
"We MUST vigorously support the continuing efforts to expose pathologically anti-gay, Islamaphobic, and rabidly intolerant agitators for what they are: die-hard enemies of the United States Constitution."
