Department of Defense in an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) training brief for military reservists lists Catholicism, Evangelical Christians, Orthodox Jews and Fundamentalist Mormons, religious extremism, SPLC
As you take your God instructed day of rest this Sunday 07APR2013 know that parts of your government including the Politically Correct Commissars called the EEO Officers are designating you and your faith as Religious Extremist organizations right along side “enemy number one” Al Queda. The Department of Defense in an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) training brief for military reservists lists Catholicism, Evangelical Christians, Orthodox Jews and Fundamentalist Mormons alongside other examples of “religious extremism” such as Al Qaeda and Hamas. The briefing was the EEO Commissar briefing the 316th Expeditionary Sustainment Command in Pennsylvania, said Ron Crews, a retired colonel who served as an evangelical Christian chaplain in the Army. The problem could be more widespread, Crews said, because his organization has received information about briefings at other Army units and at least one Navy installation that labeled groups as “religious extremists” who were part of the Evangelical Christian community.
What do I take from this? One, Catholics, Evangelical Christians, Orthodox Jews, believing Mormons and other Christians who put God above the State are exactly those I would welcome associating with in the American Redoubt. When the militant progressives identify the “groups” they dislike, it is a great endorsement of who you should be making plans with. Second, this is the ultimate goal of the militant homosexual and progressive liberal crowd. To make traditionalist of all types enemies of their state.
Now here is the rest of the story as far as I can make of it. The Politically Correct Progressive / Liberal Commissars have been placed in every military unit, government office and defense contractor to ensure that all parts of the government have someone there promoting the most liberal view points of the Federal Government. Now one of these, someone appears to have simply gone to the SPLC, we all remember the SPLC, if not click on the link and I will take you to two post I have written about these modern-day bigots who work for the U.S. government as a gray paid propaganda corps. They simply copied most of what they got from there, with some Wikipedia thrown in. I am unsure where they got this particular slide (it would be nice to know) but from the rest of the slide deck, they are just cutting and pasting.
The real story here is that anyone, anyone employed by the USG and the DOC would feel comfortable putting Evangelical Christians, Orthodox Jews and Catholics (funny it is all Catholics) down on the same side as Al Queda. This represents that some are doing what we know that comes next after gay marriage wins the popular support. They will start to legalize incest, multiple spouses and more. The point is when marriage is a civil right that “should not be denied” anyone, who are you to deny me my happiness in marrying my adult daughter? Live and let live right? And the destruction of the meaning and special nature of marriage will be completely destroyed. After that, the Militant Homosexual lobby and their allies in the Militant Progressive movement will use this finding to attack religion. They will attack any religious group that does not support their gun-grabbing, worship the State as god, homosexual promoting agenda. And they are starting to identify those groups; Evangelical Christians, Orthodox Jews, Catholics and strict fundamentalist Mormons.
The other story here is their definition of extremism and supremacist. They define it to include everyone they dislike or disagrees with them.
I believe that Christianity is “superior to all other” religions. In addition I believe that Catholicism is “superior to all other” forms of Christianity so do all Catholics that know their faith. “Ex Cathedra: There is but one universal Church of the faithful, outside of which no one at all is saved. [Pope Innocent III, Fourth Lateran Council, 1215]” Thus by the very nature of our faith we are supremacist under their new definition of supremacist. Extremist also gets a redefined definition to include all the Progressive / Liberals disagree with. An Extremist is “A person who advocates supremacist causes based on religion…” That is what all those semi-colons mean, you can combine the above sentence any way you want.
That is the real story. The DOD Progressive Commissars have redefined the terms supremacist and extremist to include all that disagree with them and they are comfortable enough to put this into paper and start teaching it to the troops publicly. And you think the military of tomorrow will refuse to take citizen’s guns?
From Father Z’s blog. “I call it ‘creeping incrementalism’. Liberals will state or propose something outrageous. There is an outcry against it. They back done. They wait for awhile. They do it again. There is an outcry, but the outcry isn’t quite as loud. They back down again. Meanwhile, a few people are either now onside or they cease to care. They push it again. There is an outcry. They back down. Etc. After a while they get their way. And the people who saw the evil of what was being pushed are called extremists.
That is how liberals get things done. They are persistent. They put aside small differences. They work together to break down the existing mores and relentlessly push their agenda.” Very true Father Z, and there are lessons to be learned here.
The Archdiocese for the Military Services (AMS) issued a statement on this scandal which states, in part:
The Archdiocese for the Military Services and Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty recently became aware of a U.S. Army Reserve Equal Opportunity training brief that expressly listed “Catholicism,” “Evangelical Christianity” and other religious groups as examples of “religious extremism” alongside groups such as “Al Qaeda”, “Hamas” and the “KKK.”
The Archdiocese is astounded that Catholics were listed alongside groups that are, by their very mission and nature, violent and extremist.
