Salvation Army



In the article, "Christian Soldiers", Newsweek looks at "The growing controversy over military chaplains using the armed forces to spread the Word."The article cites incidents such as the evangelical Chaplaincy of Full Gospel Churches (CFGC) "an organization in charge of endorsing 270 chaplains and chaplain candidates for the armed services", releasing newsletters which stated "that the real enemy of the U.S. wasn't Osama bin Laden, but Allah, whom the newsletter called "Lucifer." A 2006 issue argued that all Muslim-Americans should be treated with suspicion, as they "obviously can't be good Americans." In a 2008 sermon, Ammerman called Islam "a killer religion" and Muslims "the devil."
