Nunnelee wants answers about Army ‘domestic hate groups’

Members of Congress are turning up the heat on the Pentagon in an effort to find out why – and by whose orders – the military has been attacking the integrity and patriotism of Christian organizations by labeling them as “domestic hate groups.”

Congressman Alan Nunnelee (R-Mississippi) is 1 of 38 members of Congress signing off on a letter to the Secretary of the Army – especially about an incident last month at Camp Shelby, Mississippi, in which the Tupelo-based American Family Association was labeled in Army training material as a “hate group.” The Army initially claimed it was an isolated incident.

“But as we looked into it, [we found] this is not an isolated incident,” Nunnelee tells OneNewsNow.

“There are a number of cases where the Army has singled out the American Family Association and other Christian organizations as hate groups, and service men and women have been threatened with sanctions if they support these groups. “I am troubled by what appears to be a mounting culture of religious intolerance and hostility towards Christianity within the Army,” he adds in a press release. “I do not believe that the Army has taken adequate steps to address the root cause of these incidents.”
