“The American public should be outraged that the U.S. Army is teaching our troops that evangelical Christians and tea party members are enemies of America and that they can be punished for supporting or participating in those groups,” Liberty Institute Attorney Mike Berry told Fox News. “These statements about evangelicals being domestic enemies are a serious charge.”
