According to this article from the thoroughly un-biased, Congressman Doug Lamborn is demanding an apology from the Secretary of the Army:

“This is astonishing and offensive,” read a draft of the letter written by Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO). “We call on you to rescind this briefing and apologize for its content and set the record straight on the Army’s view on these faith groups by providing a balanced briefing on religious extremism.”

Apparently, according to the article, "Lamborn is referring to an Army training session conducted last year that featured a presentation listing Evangelical Christianity and Catholicism as examples of extremism — alongside Al Qaeda and Hamas."

The article continues that a lieutenant colonel in the Army allegedly wrote an email calling the Colorado-based Family Research Council and the Mississippi-based American Family Association hate groups.

If true, this officer in the Army isn't alone in identifying the two anti-gay organizations as such — both groups are considered "hate groups" by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
