Obama's Defence Department: Catholicism = Al Qaeda; Evangelical Christianity = Hamas NOT KIDDING!!!

A pinch of moral relativism and a dash of progressive 'redefinitionism' plus a tonne of abject ignorance gets you this:



AMS Calls on U.S. Defense Department to Review Army Reserve Training Material for Anti-Religious Content

Concern raised by brief citing Catholicism as example of “religious extremism”

WASHINGTON, D.C.—The Archdiocese for the Military Services (AMS) issued the following statement today on the mischaracterization of  “Catholicism” as an example of “religious extremism” on slide #24 of this U.S. Army Reserve training brief:


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. 
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.


This is beyond outrageous. It is utterly contemptible, stupid and wholly ignorant. It looks like it was written by the bloody New York Times and the Southern Poverty Law Centre, which lists the leader of the New Black Panther Party, Malik Zulu Shabazz, as one of the ’30 New Activists Heading Up The Radical Right.’* They cannot even distinguish between religions, denominations and organisations.

Catholicism is a denomination. DoD has condemned more than 1 billion people. Islam is a religion, but it isn’t condemned.

Evangelical Christianity is a type of Christianity found in various denominations, including Catholicism.

Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and Ultra-Orthodox Judaism are sects. They aren’t religions, denominations, terrorist organisations, or religious-political- cultural-economic organisations.

Sunni Islam is a branch of Islam a denomination, so to speak. So is Shia Islam, but it is not listed. Why? The Iranians are, primarily, Shia. I guess that they didn’t want to upset those nuclear talks that blew up anyway.

The Muslim Brotherhood is neither a religion nor a denomination. It is a religious, political, cultural and economic organisation.

The KKK, Hutaree, and Christian Identity are white supremacist organisations, not religions or denominations.

The Nation of Islam is neither a religion nor a denomination. It is a religious, political, cultural and economic organisation.
Al Qaeda, Hamas, and Abu Sayyah are internationally-recognised and listed terrorist organisations.

Heads need to roll.

I have some advice for the religious of all faiths in the US…and those that support them...and I AM SAYING THIS AS AN ATHEIST:  You need to take time off of work, get off of the sofa, and get your asses to Washington. A ‘Million Man March’? Pffft! You need to put so many bodies in DC that there is SRO in Northern Virginia and Maryland. You CANNOT allow this administration to get away with equating you to Al Qaeda and Hamas…and DO NOT BACKDOWN EVEN IF OBAMA APOLOGISES.

The administration cannot be allowed to get away with it nor can this type of mentality be met with a ‘Meh,’ This is not abortion or SSM…even people of faith can have honest, legitimate, heartfelt disagreements on those topics. This is our government labelling whole denominations as terrorists.

Catholics are the same as Al Qaeda?

Evangelical Christians are the same as members of Hamas?

Ultra-Orthodox Jews are the same as members of KKK?

Fundamentalist Mormons are the same as members of Muslim Brotherhood?

It is soooo fvcking absurd, ignorant, hateful, and bordering on TREASONOUS BEHAVIOUR in my -- albeit very pissed off -- opinion.

Update:  The military DID get its information from the fearmongering shysters at the SPLC.

* Some of Malik Zulu Shabazz's 'radical right' quotes:

“We wanna bring on a man who gives the white man nightmares. We wanna bring on a man who makes the Jews pee in they [sic] pants at night. He’s like black Raid on white roaches.”

“I don’t care what the Jews say. You [blacks] are the only people that have been in bondage for over 400 years. You are the true chosen people of God, and it is not the so-called Jew.”

“All praise is due to Allah. Black power! Black power! Black power! Black power!”

“We have a common enemy: the white man. And the white man’s system, his way of doing things, his way of operating. That’s what we mean by ‘the white man.’ His military, his planes, his aircraft carriers, his bombs, his missiles, his imperialism, his colonialism, his Zionism. That’s the real enemy, what we call the white man.”

"This is not just slavery.... [T]his is up until the 1940s, 1950s, a favorite habit of theirs [whites] is to take a black man and ... take a rope and wrap it around his neck and hang him from a tree. Our holocaust did not last six years, our holocaust did not last 12 years, you talkin' about a 400-year holocaust! ... We are the only ones who have been in a land that is not our own for 400 years, stripped of our name, our language, our religion, our culture, and our god. Huh? Castrate the black man! Take the black man, cut his genitals off! Take the genitals, ram it in his mouth and light the black man on fire! And they sit around eating popcorn and laugh about it! Huh? Havin' picnic, which really comes from the origin 'pick-a-nigger.' Picnic comes from the origin pick a 'nigger'! 'Pick a nigger' to lynch and go an' get some food and popcorn and laugh about it! No genuine human being could lynch another human being without just cause and sit around and laugh and smile and eat popcorn about it.... The black man to them has always been a threat, and they get joy out of hanging the black man. They get joy out of either physically hanging you, or they get joy out of mentally and politically hanging you."

"We [blacks] are the original people on the planet. We are responsible for the existence of the white race!... You are the mothers and the fathers of the brown man. The yellow man. And the white man and the white woman. And no matter how you look at these people you call niggers, no matter how you look down on black people, remember you're lookin' at your mother and lookin' at your your father. Huh? They should bow down when they see you in the hallways — bow down and kiss the feet of the black woman. And say if it were not for you, black woman, I wouldn't have even a biological chemical existence. Huh? Black Power! Black Power!... you are the original people but they don't want you to know it; according to them you're nothing but a nigger! Black Power! Black Power!... Our genes are dominant, white genes are recessive. A black man and a black woman can produce brown. You can produce red, queen! You can produce yellow! You can produce white and something that's whiter than white, 180 degrees opposite in either direction! But if Bob and Jill — if Bob and Jill get together, they can do it all day, all night — they can produce nothing but a little white baby. It's because Mendel, the German scientist — I'm talkin' facts here now — Mendel the German scientist teaches us that dark genes are dominant and light genes are recessive. Black Power!" 

“Anything I do is for revolution for black people, no matter what it is.  You know, there is no greater enemy than the white man. You know, uh, again we have to learn because it’s just as many Arabs who hate this white man as we do. So, am I not to ally myself, alliance myself with this Arab in fighting this white man?”

- Malik Zulu Shabazz, 22 May 2012

Given his hatred for white people, it is not at all surprising that Shabazz is a racial separatist:

"The perfect world for us [blacks] would be ... a nation of our own. We want our own land, factories and farms. We are tired of demonstrating against police brutality year after year, month after month, [saying] 'Please treat us right. Stop discriminating against us.' It seems almost impossible to achieve real justice within the confines of White racist America. So, the perfect world, of course, is a Black nation. The perfect world for us would be the Honorable Louis Farrakhan as our president and a Congress with our best politicians, scholars, researchers, thinkers and activists working under a divine chain of command."

And, what "Righty" doesn't hate Jews and the State of Israel? (snark)

“Zionism is racism, Zionism is terrorism, Zionism is colonialism, Zionism is Imperialism, and support for Zionism is the root of why so many were killed on September 11.... Zionists control America, lock, stock and barrel. The European Jews have America under control, lock, stock, and barrel, the media, foreign policy."

“The Jews have taken the entire state of Israel, West Bank, and Gaza, all of that is stolen territory. And they are the reason that someone else would blow themselves up. It is not the Palestinians' fault. It is the fault of the Zionists.” (10 March 2006)

"The New Black Panther Party stands in 100 percent solidarity with the Palestinian people. As you know, we're strong opponents of Zionism. We're strong opponents of the U.S. policy of strictly supporting Israel. We find no legal or legitimate basis, really for the existence of the Zionist state.… I say to the Palestinian people to continue to stand up and continue to resist and never forget the blood of the martyrs that went before them.”

"Who's the real racists? Is it me or is it the Zionists?... Who went in crushin' over two million Palestinians outta that land? Then they kept startin' wars with their Arab neighbors to grab more and more land; that's part of what Zionism is, to take as much land as they can. If they could get away with it they'd swallow up Gaza. If they could get away with it they'd swallow up — uh ... the West Bank, they'd swallow up Jordan. They'd swallow up the Golan Heights.... How can you be a Jew and say you [sic] a Zionist? How can you be a Jew and participate in the taking of another people's land? And right — and ripping them off of their land and killing them on their land. They just bulldoze the houses! Drove them off the land and today they say they don't even have the right to return.... Look at what they do to the Palestinians, flyin' helicopters, shootin' missiles into they [sic] houses. Huh? They don't like em they just bulldoze your house. Take a bulldozer, bulldoze your houses. The blood of the Palestinians on the hands of the Zionists drips all the way down into the core of the planet Earth."

I guess that it was this comment to Richard J Rosendall, an openly gay writer and the former president of the Gay and Lesbian Activists Alliance of Washington, DC, that made the SPLC push him over to the right because, like, everyone on the left is pro-gay…
