Soldiers at a pre-deployment briefing at Fort Hood say they were told evangelical Christians and Tea Party members were a threat to the nation, according to FOX News.
According to FOX journalist Todd Starnes, another soldier attending the briefing says they were told groups like the American Family Association were "tearing the country apart."
The soldiers were also reportedly told donating to such groups could lead to punishment under military code because some of them had been classified as hate groups.
The Liberty Institute attorney Michael Berry, who is advising one of the soldiers, called the statements naming Christians as domestic enemies a "serious charge."
"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," he said.
Berry, a former Marine Corps JAG officer, has launched an investigation into the allegations.
