U.S. Government Calls Evangelical Christians a Threat to the Nation . . . at Fort Hood

No word yet on whether actual jihadists are a threat to the nation.

FoxNews—Soldiers attending a pre-deployment briefing at Fort Hood say they were told that evangelical Christians and members of the Tea Party were a threat to the nation and that any soldier donating to those groups would be subjected to punishment under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

A soldier who attended the Oct. 17th briefing told me the counter-intelligence agent in charge of the meeting spent nearly a half hour discussing how evangelical Christians and groups like the American Family Association were “tearing the country apart.”

Michael Berry, an attorney with the Liberty Institute, is advising the soldier and has launched an investigation into the incident.

“The American public should be outraged that the U.S. Army is teaching our troops that evangelical Christians and Tea Party members are enemies of America, and that they can be punished for supporting or participating in those groups,” said Berry, a former Marine Corps JAG officer.

“These statements about evangelicals being domestic enemies are a serious charge.”

The soldier told me he fears reprisals and asked not to be identified. He said there was a blanket statement that donating to any groups that were considered a threat to the military and government was punishable under military regulations.

“My first concern was if I was going to be in trouble going to church,” the evangelical Christian soldier told me. “Can I tithe? Can I donate to Christian charities? What if I donate to a politician who is a part of the Tea Party movement?”

Another soldier who attended the briefing alerted the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty. That individual’s recollections of the briefing matched the soldier who reached out to me.

“I was very shocked and couldn’t believe what I was hearing,” the soldier said. “I felt like my religious liberties, that I risk my life and sacrifice time away from family to fight for, were being taken away.”

And while a large portion of the briefing dealt with the threat evangelicals and the Tea Party pose to the nation, barely a word was said about Islamic extremism, the soldier said.

“Our community is still healing from the act of terrorism brought on by Nidal Hasan – who really is a terrorist,” the soldier said. “This is a slap in the face. “The military is supposed to defend freedom and to classify the vast majority of the military that claim to be Christian as terrorists is sick.” (Continue Reading.)

The stupidity and callous attempt to label groups not tolerable to progressive ideas is literally causing my head to hurt.

If this is true, what an utter disgrace to Americans (military personnel especially) that our government would either condone this or not put an end to it.

The only threat that evanegelical Christians pose to Muslims is the threat that they just might here to truth from the Bible.For example, if Islam is represented as a tree then the fruit of that tree are the many different Islamic terror groups. Such as al Qaeda, Hezbollah,Hamas, Assar al Islam PIJ etc. All these Islamic groups put into practice the murderous violence of the militant jihadism of Islam,the Quran,Sura 9:122. 47:4. In the light of this statement the teaching of Jesus very much apply . For Jesus taught "Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather graps of thorns, or figs of thisles ? Even so every good tree bringth forth good fruit: but a corrupt tree bringth forth evil fruit.
A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit,neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit."
After saying the above Jesus told them what he told them by adding "By their fruit ye shll know them." Matthew 7;16,17,18,20.
In conlusion, Islam is a corrupt tree and Islam is a false religion.

This all makes sense if you realise Obama is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.
