Religious Extremism

Who are the “extremists” and the “terrorists” that the U.S. military should be concerned about?  For years, we were told that the “terrorists” belong to an organization known as al-Qaeda in the Middle East and other radical jihadist groups that are affiliated with them.  But now that has all totally changed.  We are discovering that time after time U.S. military personnel are being taught that evangelical Christians are “extremists” that belong to a “domestic hate group” and that they are potential terrorists that could use violence at any time.  This vilification of Christians started about the time that Barack Obama was elected and it has greatly accelerated over the past couple of years.  Stunned Christian service members can hardly believe what they are hearing in some of these training sessions.  They are being told that they cannot be affiliated with any of these “hate groups” and that anyone found to be supporting such groups could be disciplined under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.  Fortunately, the U.S. military later publicly disavows many of these training sessions when they are revealed to the public, but the demonization of Christians has not stopped.  In fact, it appears to be getting more frequent.  The following are 8 examples of the U.S. military being taught to treat Christians as extremists and potential terrorists…

#1 On October 17th, soldiers at Ft. Hood were instructed that evangelical Christians are a “threat to this nation”…

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.”

#2 During a recent U.S. Army briefing, the American Family Association was identified as a “domestic hate group“…

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.

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.

#3 A battalion commander assigned to the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, Kentucky sent out a mass email to those under his command last year that included the “Christian Right”, the Family Research Council and Focus on the Family founder James Dobson under the heading of “Domestic Hate Groups”.

#4 An unclassified guide for military leaders that was published in August 2011 identifies those that exhibit “extreme religious intolerance” as potentially violent radicals.  If you claim that your faith is the only true faith (like most Bible-believing Christians do), that would put you into this category.

#5 Earlier this year, the Pentagon issued a written statement to Fox News that stated that “religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense” and that “court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis”.

#6 One of the top consultants that Barack Obama has brought in to the Pentagon to work on issues related to religion in the military, Mikey Weinstein, has described evangelical Christians as “human monsters” and “enemies of the United States Constitution“.

#7 Mikey Weinstein also teaches that when an evangelical Christian shares his or her faith, it is the equivalent of being “spiritually raped by fundamentalist Christian religious predators“.

#8 In April of last year, a U.S. Army training presentation specifically identified evangelical Christians as religious extremists.  On a slide entitled “Religious Extremism”, “Evangelical Christianity” was at the very top of a list of extremist religious groups that also included al-Qaeda, Hamas and the Ku Klux Klan.

And this is just the tip of the iceberg.  Along with evangelical Christians, Tea Party activists, “conspiracy theorists”, anti-abortion protesters and those concerned about a “New World Order” have also been identified as dangerous extremists in a whole host of official U.S. government documents.  For a large number of examples of this phenomenon, please see my previous article entitled “72 Types Of Americans That Are Considered “Potential Terrorists” In Official Government Documents“.

And the frightening thing is that the federal government has actually been doing research into methods that change the way that people view the world.  As I have written about previously, the government is actually developing technology that would enable it to brainwash people and change their religious beliefs.

So who would the government do that to?

They would do it to “extremists” and those that belong to “hate groups” of course.

Once you are identified as a “terrorist”, then that gives authorities legal permission to treat you just like they would treat members of al-Qaeda.

That is why it is so important for evangelical Christians to stand up and denounce this kind of vilification.

In Nazi Germany, they didn’t just wake up one day and decide to start shipping Jews and other minorities off to prison camps.  It all started with years of propaganda and demonization.

And now a similar thing is happening in the United States.

You would have to be completely blind not to see what is happening right in front of our eyes.

    I guess I am right in line behind you Michael because I am a Christian first, and everything else second.
    There is a policy that does make sense in the military. We are a nation of a great diversity of beliefs. So MYOB is that policy. MYOB is Mind Your Own Business. We do not discuss our beliefs in the barracks.
    That goes for beliefs in anything. So the Homosexual beliefs are just as taboo as are the Christian beliefs when on the job. That having been said, that CO is in danger of violenting the policy that has kept these diverse belief systems fighting as a team together. The Aethist belief system is just as guilty of this violation. They are both way out of line.

    What you do outside the barracks and the military is your own business. I choose to be a Christian. I choose to believe the constitution of this country gives us the freedom and the right to believe as we so choose.
    The democratic party has been notoriously anti-religious for a long time. The belief that women have a right to murder their unborn children is just one example of that. It is called abortion and they appear to be pro-abortion.
    Christians are notoriously Republican. This is evident in many clubs within the churches of this country. I believe that the abortion issue has pushed Christians towards the lesser of two evils.
    Neither party in my opinion is really expressing a strong Christian behavior. The Republican party is also known to favor the rich over the middle class a lot of times. In all fairness they have not been very effective in limiting abortions in this country over the last 40 years. Neither have they voted for the working people of this country. That has to change if they want to be effective.

    The nature of the rich people in this country has changed. A lot of them are no longer Christian in belief. There is still a strong Christian Majority in this country. Getting them to step forward and commit to their beliefs at the voting place is another matter.
    I believe that all Christians should go to the voting place and vote real Christians into office and then we can change exactly how that CO operates or doesn’t. Because I think that CO should retire, like yesterday.

    If you look at the steadily creeping evil that is taking over this Country. And you look at the source of that evil. We Christians are the enemy of that evil. We all knew this battle was coming, and that many of us will not survive it. As the Lord leads, I follow.

    • seth datta

      Satanists run the UK, US and many other nations. The ‘beast’ is the global intertwined economic system that covers the planet. I don’t know about the mark of the beast in the hand, widely believed to be the rfid cashless society ID chip. But those who refuse the mark of the beast in the head most likely suffer from ‘organised stalking and electronic harassment’.

  • Hammerstrike

    Some smucks may argue that Mikey Weinstein (not a christian name, now is it?) does not represent the overall governement so I´ll point out that mr Weinstein still has his job, which wouldn´t have been the case if he had gone after “muslims” instead.
    Heck, if he used the n*gger word on twitter or facebook, he would prolly be fired immediately.

    That his rants are met with silence speaks long of the Federal and Pentagon bureaucracy.

  • inkycayuga

    Based on the article above, if a soldier tithes at his (or her) church they can be punished?
    How insane is that?

      Obey God not man. God bless American Christians.

    Persecution or killing of Christians, is yet another sign how close we are to the Tribulation and Jesus Christ returning shortly after.

    Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

    • Mike M

      The Rapture happens 1st; THEREFORE we will MISS the Great Tribulation. We’ll go to the Judgment Seat of Christ for our Rewards, Crowns & Treasures: 2Timothy 4:8 & 1Peter 5:4. If you see the Antichrist, you MISSED Jesus Christ. At the 2nd Coming of Christ, WE COME BACK WITH HIM: Revelation 17:14 & 19:7-21. MARANATHA!

      • Lizzy

        people miss the mark with this one, so many christians fall away from the faith when the antichrist takes his seat and then the tribulation happens, we are not going to miss it. that rapture verse is too widely misinterpreted. we WILL BE HER TO FIGHT THE BATTLE. if that rapture verse was true then based on the sin in most christian’s lives today…less than 1% will be raptured…we need to get real here and die to self, I do not see many christians out there who have died to self and live for HIM (myself included)

        • Lizzy

          one small example I like to use where christians live for self. All sin is the same in God’s eyes, yet the church focuses soley on sexual sin. Gluttony is HUGE! Statistically in America today the fattest most unhealthy Americans are church goers…fuel the body with healthy foods so you are prepared and energized to fight the battles when they come and stop relying on western medicine to fix your problems. move your body! stop having church potlucks with sugar and wheat based products and instead have boot camp classes and veggies and meats to sustain you physically and get an LTC and learn to defend your homes and families and learn to live off the land and learn to rely on GOD now instead of whining and complaining about what our Government and Military are doing! Christians need to stop being like the secular world and start preparing for our persecutions. Don’t wait til Marshall Law takes over. Be ready now. I go to church every week to get my instructions from GOD not man and when I see all the people consuming candy, cakes, muffins, donuts….aarrrrggghhh!!!! I don’t see the churches I have been to even CLOSE to being ready for the end times ever… it is so sad to watch

  • dtnorth

    All of the groups noted above ARE classified as hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Centre.

    What they want is the right to discriminate enshrined in law and they are miffed as they are not getting their way.

    • Hammerstrike

      That´s the SPLC 4 ya!

  • jaxon64

    Nailed it. I suspect that much of the hatred against christians is now turning up because of the allowance and coddling of the sodomites in the military. I guarantee that much of these programs and initiatives start at the desks of the sensitivity trainers and “men who are aroused by men” types.
    If men of moral character, ethics and love of God, family and country are banned from our military–then our military will be ineffectual. Who knows? Maybe that is the purpose behind all of this. It seems as if the efforts to destroy the US financially are with intent–maybe this is a way to fast-track the dismantling of the world’s premier military power. Take away men of honor,comittment to family, compassion and deep faith and replace them with the poor looking for a paycheck, the militant gays and feminists…yep, not exactly a fear inducing group of soldiers in our future military.

    • Piglet

      Having spent several decades in the military, I wouldn’t go so far as to say it has been full of men (or women) with “moral character, ethics and love of God, family and country.” Quite the contrary! The public has is fed a public-relations image of the military that has no connection to reality. If people knew what it was really like, they’d be astounded and appalled. Those reading this and who have been in the military – well, you know what I’m talking about.

      Anyway, being without “moral character, ethics and love of God, family and country” does not necessarily lead to an ineffectual military. Just look to the Second World War and the armies of Japan, Germany and the USSR. Few other armies have been as brutal and utterly ruthless as they were. Although the first two were eventually defeated, they were successful in conquering massive amounts of territory and many millions of people before their fortunes were reversed. It was largely the Red Army, hardly the model of anything we’d view as positive in the US, that held off 80% of the Wehrmacht and eventually pushed back the German Army and destroyed it completely.

      I’m not recommending we have a military lacking in “moral character, ethics and love of God, family and country” (actually we do, but most people haven’t caught on yet); however, countries that have a lot of real SOBs in their armies have done quite well over the years.

  • motorsportsnz

    The only thing the American Govt should now be concerned with is, that as their men /women on the ground are so confused about who the enemy is, will it be possible that they will know which end of the gun to point at the bad man?


    This seems to be painting with very broad strokes, with almost zero accountability or quoted resources for the claims made in this article. I would love to re-read this article if the author could do some objective journalism and not Fox News smash and grab headline fear-mongering. Don’t get me wrong, I know some of this stuff is happening, it is just thje first several claims you make are unfounded, un-cited hearsay.

  • Irv Spielberg

    [Note the following article (Mikey Weinstein, Jesus-Basher) which I found on Joe Ortiz’s son-of-encouragement blog of Feb. 22nd. Mikey has done much to poison the military against us Christians!!]

    What kind of wine has Mikey Weinstein been drinking?

    As an anti-Christian Jewish supremacist and as the president of the
    Military Religious Freedom Foundation, he’s doing all he can to create
    an anti-Jewish backlash and help bring about the predicted endtime
    Holocaust of Jews that’ll be worse than Hitler’s.

    Neither Falwell, Hagee nor any other preacher initiated this prediction. But Weinstein’s ancient Hebrew prophets did.

    In the 13th and 14th chapters of his Old Testament book, Zechariah
    predicted that after Israel’s rebirth ALL nations will eventually be
    against Israel and that TWO-THIRDS of all Jews will be killed!

    Malachi revealed the reasons: “Judah hath dealt treacherously” and “the Lord will cut off the man that doeth this.”

    Haven’t evangelicals generally been the best friends of Israel and
    persons perceived to be Jewish? Then please explain the hate-filled
    back-stabbing by David Letterman (and Sandra Bernhard, Larry David,
    Kathy Griffin, Bill Maher, Joan Rivers, Sarah Silverman etc.) against the followers of Jesus.

    wouldn’t dare assert that citizens on government property don’t have
    freedom of speech or press freedom or freedom to assemble or to petition
    the government.

    But God-hater Weinstein maliciously
    wants to eliminate from government property the “free exercise” of
    religion – especially by evangelicals – a freedom found in the same
    First Amendment. Significantly, this freedom was purposely listed FIRST
    by America’s founders!

    And Weinstein wouldn’t
    try to foist “separation of church and state” on strongly-Jewish
    Israel, but he does try to foist this non-Constitution-mentioned phrase
    on strongly-Christian America.

    In light of Weinstein’s Jewish protectionism and violently
    anti-Christian obsession, Christians in these endtimes should be
    reminded of Jesus’ warning in Mark 13:9 (see also Luke 21:12) that “in the synagogues ye shall be beaten.”

    Maybe it’s time for some modern Paul Reveres to saddle up and shout “The Yiddish are Coming!”


  • I was in the military and Christians were more than accepted, it was encouraged. The Army refused to print “atheist” on my dog tags. I was told the only option was “no religious preference”. There was ALWAYS the opportunity to attend Christian services. No matter where we were or what we were doing that was always an option. So don’t pretend that the military doesn’t accept Christianity.
