Soldiers in the U.S. military have been told in a training briefing that evangelical Christians are the No. 1 extremist threat to America – ahead of groups like the Muslim Brotherhood, KKK, Nation of Islam, al-Qaida, Hamas and others.


“Men and women of faith who have served the Army faithfully for centuries shouldn’t be likened to those who have regularly threatened the peace and security of the United States,” said Col. (Ret.) Ron Crews, executive director of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty. “It is dishonorable for any U.S. military entity to allow this type of wrongheaded characterization. It also appears that some military entities are using definitions of ‘hate’ and ‘extreme’ from the lists of anti-Christian political organizations. That violates the apolitical stance appropriate for the military.”




  • The briefing, which was given to an Army reserve unit in Pennsylvania, came from a U.S. Army Reserve Equal Opportunity training brief titled “Extremism and Extremist Organizations.”

    The material mentions neo-Nazis, the KKK and other white supremacist organizations. Pictures are shown on various slides of people in Klan attire and Nazi flags. The significance of gang tattoos, and racist acronyms and the significance of numbers were also discussed.


    While the material on gangs and racist organizations is similar to what one might receive from a local police briefing on gang issues, after teaching on neo-Nazis in the military such as Timothy McVeigh, the material makes an amazing link.


    A slide titled “Religious Extremism” lists multiple organizations such as the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaida, Hamas, the Nation of Islam, the Ku Klux Klan and the Christian Identity movement as examples of extremist groups.


    However, the first group on the list is evangelical Christianity. Catholicism and ultra-orthodox Judaism are also on the list of religious extremist organizations.


    See what Christian really is, in “Body of Divinity: The Sum and Substance of the Christian Religion.”


    Following the briefing, one of the soldiers who attended the presentation and describes himself as an evangelical told the trainer he was offended at the material and asked for a copy of the briefing. After receiving a copy, he forwarded the material to Crews.


    The material describes religious extremism as those having beliefs, attitudes, feelings or actions that are “far removed from the ordinary.” It then elaborates by saying that “every religion has some followers that believe that their beliefs, customs and traditions are the only ‘right way’ and that all others practicing their faith the ‘wrong way.’”


    Crews said it is astounding that soldiers were taught that a key foundation of the Christian faith is now considered extreme and compared to those who want to implement Shariah law.


    “The idea of salvation being exclusively through Christ is a key doctrine of the Christian faith,” Crews said. “It is amazing that the trainer felt they had the authority and right to list evangelical Christian, Catholics and orthodox Jews alongside groups like the Muslim Brotherhood.”



    When pressed as to how evangelical Christians and Catholics are a danger to those serving in the military, the brief does not provide any examples. However, it does provide several examples of Muslim extremists in the military. Among them are:

      It is directly out of Lenin's playbook. Communists trying to destroy societal fabric. I still consider the Left as the biggest terrorist threat in the world, Democrats/communists included for their attack on religion other than their socio-communic religion of racism, theft, murder, and hate, their attack on the Constitution, especially their attack on the First and Second Amendments. The record of the Left speaks to that effect.

      Does the latest lunacy from the heinous Left mention Negro and Hispanic Supremacy Groups? Does it mention the religion of communism and socialism as looming terrorist threats? Does it mention the terrorist tactics of taxation and debt?

      Very true. Never heard of an "aetheist in a foxhole" - at least through the Vietnam War. Nowadays - who knows since we have "dumbed down" our children (the current crop of millenials) and robbed them of our heritage and history through our "dysfunctional and multi-culturalism" educational system. What a sad day for America.

      If they really believed that, they would first have to identify all the Christian soldiers and give them a dishonorable discharge.

      Transvalutation of Values is what has happened to America. The Good becomes Bad and the Bad becomes Good.

      McVeigh was neither a Christian nor a white supremacist and did not beong to any militia groups.
      McVeigh spent his adult life trying to decide if he was an Agnostic or an Atheist.

      Either Nichols or Fortier had been in a militia group and they kicked him out because they thought he was crazy.

      "The Third Terrorist: The Middle Eastern Connection to the Oklahoma City Bombing".
      - Jayna Davis maintains that McVeigh was an accessory and not a principal in the plot. All McVeigh did was drive the truck and park it in front of the Murrah Building. The expertise was provided by 2 members of Saddam's Republican Guard and the bombmaker rode shotgun (in more ways than one) with McVeigh because they did not trust him.

      Thanks, I don't want anyone omitted, the page was jumping around so violently that the photo of obama was all I could see. I wonder how long it will be before the Girl Scouts USA makes that list.

      The Left has gone nuts, by Janet Napolitano's description, I am a terrorist in nearly every aspect of my life deeds. She should be tried for terrorist activities, as I said to her in a letter 2 years ago, she and her ilk are the real terrorists. She didn't have the guts or the decency to reply. She is as unAmerican as it gets and should be removed from office.

      It just makes God's Word relative to the unbelieving, rebellious, God/Christ-hating world vs. believers that much more meaningful, truthful, and real IMO.

      Christian persecution is bound to happen on an increasing level in both quantity and intensity...Not that believers have to be pacifistic about it, and allow themselves to be run over, but the world hates them, just as Jesus Christ stated it did and would.

      I wonder how many Christians they're tell this lie to. I don't know who "they" are. But it seems it's believed that the children of America have been brainwashed enough to believe they can turn their guns on civilians
