Christian Groups Ask Pentagon to End Connection to ‘Anti-Christian’ SPLC

Posted on | December 12, 2013 | 27 Comments

Domestic terrorism has consequences:

The Thomas More Law Center with the Family Research Council (FRC) and 14 other organizations announced yesterday the submission of a letter to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel requesting that the Department of Defense (DOD) ensure that future training materials do not rely on information from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) or any other organization that engages in groundless and highly pejorative mischaracterizations of long-standing Christian organizations for their own political purposes.
The request comes after several training incidents in which Army instructors may have relied on anti-Christian materials produced by the Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization that was linked to domestic terrorism in federal court in February, 2013. …
“We will continue to monitor this situation and remain in contact with the Department of Defense to ensure that instructors carry out their role to train our troops to defend our freedom, and not push the Southern Poverty Law Center’s anti-Christian agenda,” [said FRC executive vice-president Lt. Gen. (Retired) Jerry] Boykin.

    The SPLC is anti a lot of things, including American. Unless you consider shake downs and protection money “American.”

  • Socialism: Organized Evil

    A good start, for sure. The Bolsheviks have exposed themselves and it’s time for the counter-strikes to ramp up.

  • Steve Skubinna

    These Christofascist Godbags have gone too far now. Somebody ought to shoot them and rub Chick-Fil-A sandwiches in their faces.

    You know, for tolerance. Maybe the SPLC will publish a map with their locations.

    Reckon the clingers would have a thing or two to say about that!

    America is rapidly losing its lustre…

    Russia bans gay propaganda. The Supreme Court of India upholds the Buggery Act. Australia overrules homosexual “marriage” in the Capitol Territory!

    I’m all for keeping the SPLC off all American military facilities with the possible exception of target ranges, but that’s just a symptom.

    Obama is the disease, and the counterproductive leftist culture he promotes above any considerations of security or constitutionality.

    Shakedowns and protection money are part of a certain fundamental transformation. See Obama’s purple army.

  • Quartermaster

    Alas, Zer0 is a symptom as well.

    The impact area of target ranges are the best place for them.
