Army Email Allegedly Labels Christian Organizations as ‘Domestic Hate Groups’

There are 6 comments on the news.yahoo.com story from Apr 11, 2013, titled Army Email Allegedly Labels Christian Organizations as ‘Domestic Hate Groups’. In it, news.yahoo.com reports that:

In a new report alleging anti-conservative bias in the military, Fox News Todd Starnes claims that a U.S. Army officer sent an e-mail to subordinates, listing the American Family Association and the Family Research Council as "domestic hate groups." The basis for this label? Both oniations oppose same-sex marriage and homosexuality.

The message, apparently sent by Lt. Col. Jack Rich at Fort Campbell in Kentucky, also instructed those who received the e-mail to be on the look-out for fellow soldiers who might be supporters of the organizations (or who, at the least, aren't upholding "Army Values"). Tony Perkins, who heads FRC, called the e-mail evidence that the military has become anti-Christian in nature, a Pentagon spokesperson denied such allegations.

Those organizations aren't Christian organizations. They are anti gay lobbying groups with thinly veiled Christian cover.

The Army didn't label these fine upstanding Christian organizations as domestic hate groups, that label had already been earned and applied and the Army merely repeated it. If they don't want to be labeled as domestic hate groups, they shouldn't act like one.

Agreed. AFA & FRC spent years doing everything they could to earn that listing. The SPLC clearly spelled out why they were adding those groups to the hate list when they were added in 2011.

Both groups have always been anti-gay, but it seems like their rhetoric really ramped up when Bryan Fischer & Tony Perkins took over has heads of those two groups, IMO.

The AFA & FRC are nothing more than the anti-gay versions of the KKK.

Delusional people are always the scariest because they are so divorced from reality. That's what's so scary about the AFA and the FRC. They truly believe that their actions are loving and kind and following the principles of Jesus.

They'd be hard-pressed to be further away from what Jesus stood for.(and I'm not even a Christian and I know more than they do about Jesus' message)
