Army: AFA Christian 'Hate Group'
Troops told to avoid the American Family Association.
The war on religious liberty continues. FRC reports that “a recent briefing to Army soldiers at Camp Shelby in Mississippi featured and endorsed dangerous and false left-wing anti-Christian propaganda.” Not only were “troops … explicitly led to believe that the American Family Association (AFA) – a Christian ministry – was a ‘hate group’ which soldiers should avoid at all costs,” but officials presenting the report claimed, incorrectly, that the AFA was affiliated with Westboro Baptist Church Rev. Fred Phelps. Imagine the outcry if Muslims were chastised instead. Then officials would feel the need to “do something” about it.
