Department of Defense Classified Evangelicals, Catholics as 'Extremists' like Al-Qaeda, Documents Confirm

The Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty revealed that on Monday it received more than 1,500 pages of documents confirming that the Department of Defense classified religious groups such as Catholics, Evangelicals, Jews, and Mormons as religious "extremists" similar to Al-Qaeda and the Ku Klux Klan in training materials.
"Men and women of faith who have served the military faithfully for centuries shouldn't be likened to those who have regularly threatened the peace and security of the United States," said Chaplain (Col.) Ron Crews, USAR retired, executive director of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty.
"The materials we have received verify that the military views the Southern Poverty Law Center as a 'reliable source' for Equal Opportunity briefings even though it has engaged in a pattern of labeling evangelical Christians, Catholics, and other conservative and orthodox faith groups as 'extremists.' The documents demonstrate that the Department of Defense has chosen to rely on these biased SPLC materials to train Equal Opportunity Officers in the military."
The Southern Poverty Law Center, a nonprofit civil rights organization founded in 1971 and headquartered in Alabama, has labeled a number of organizations with conservative ideals as "hate groups," including the Family Research Council.
The Archdiocese for the Military Services and the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty found evidence earlier this year that showed that U.S. Army Reserve Equal Opportunity training briefs listed Evangelical Christianity and Catholicism as "religious extremism," with a slide putting them alongside groups such as Al-Qaeda and the Ku Klux Klan.

Actually, if it did come to that.........I would immediately believe. Hell, I would use my natural born freedom and right to do so, to become a contributing member of whatever church I decide on.......Methodist maybe.

I don't see it though. There are a bunch of Christians in Government. More than enough.

*Sigh*  No way we could ever produce the slide, which probably resides in some guys desk.  Left wing media like CNN and the NY Times didnt report on this for obvious reasons.  But this is where all this stuff is coming from.

Training material listing Catholics as ‘extremists’ angers archdiocese 
Catholic military archdiocese officials are calling on defense officials to review training materials after learning that a briefing from an Army Reserve unit cited Catholicism as an example of “religious extremism” — on a list with al-Qaida, the Ku Klux Klan, and the white supremacist Christian Identity.
 
“The archdiocese is astounded that Catholics were listed alongside groups that are, by their very mission and nature, violent and extremist,” said a statement from the Archdiocese for the Military Services.
That's from the Navy Times.  Its from a slideshow titled “Extremism & Extremist Organizations,” includes a list of 17 religions or organizations, to include evangelical Christianity, that are “religious extremism.”

Here's the slide.  (Note...only a pic.  Cant produce the actual slide).  Rolling Eyes 



Here's a copy of the document  It comes from the horses mouth.  The Chaplain's Alliance for Religious Liberty.  That group is made of military Chaplains...who oughta know if this is true.  And here's the link to their news site.
