US Army: “Al Qaeda, Hamas, KKK, Catholicism, Evangelical Christianity, Orthodox Judaism”

From “Extremism and Extremist Organizations” training for the US Army Reserves.

Three of these things are not like the others:

Orthodox Jews (Haredim), Evangelical Christians, and Catholics oh my! Also, “Sunni Muslim” is a pretty broad category. And why Sunni and no Shia? And who is this “Morman” you would have us fear?

Statement from The Archdiocese for the Military Services and Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty:

The Archdiocese is astounded that Catholics were listed alongside groups that are, by their very mission and nature, violent and extremist.

According to an investigation and reply from the Army Chief of Chaplains office, the training in question appears to have been an isolated incident not condoned by the Department of the Army. The Archdiocese and the Chaplain Alliance explained that the Army can and should take steps to prevent such incidents in the future.

The Archdiocese calls upon the Department of Defense to review these materials and to ensure that tax-payer funds are never again used to present blatantly anti-religious material to the men and women in uniform.
