    Several dozen U.S. Army active duty and reserve troops were told last week that the American Family Association, a well-respected Christian ministry, should be classified as a domestic hate group because the group advocates for traditional family values.

    The briefing was held at Camp Shelby in Mississippi and listed the AFA alongside domestic hate groups like the Ku Klux Klan, Neo-Nazis, the Black Panthers and the Nation of Islam.

    A soldier who attended the briefing contacted me and sent me a photograph of a slide show presentation that listed AFA as a domestic hate group. Under the AFA headline is a photograph of Westboro Baptist Church preacher Fred Phelps holding a sign reading “No special law for f***.”

    American Family Association has absolutely no affiliation with the controversial church group known for picketing the funerals of American servicemembers.

    It looks like the Obama administration is separating the military from the American people.

    “I had to show Americans what our soldiers are now being taught,” said the soldier who asked not to be identified. “I couldn’t just let this one pass.”

    The soldier said a chaplain interrupted the briefing and challenged the instructor’s assertion that AFA is a hate group.

    “The instructor said AFA could be considered a hate group because they don’t like gays,” the soldier told me. “The slide was talking about how AFA refers to gays as sinners and heathens and derogatory terms.”

    Democrats don't care for freedom of conscience. It's that simple.

    Incredible but not unbelievable. I think the Military is becoming a testing ground for liberal policies. America is starting to look like a Socialist state.

    "Becoming"??? The military has pretty much always been the #1 testing ground for social policy.
