I've looked at two numbered links so far from the OP's source, and there's no hit list.
Instead I was linked to sites of the US military, explaining groups with extreme ideologies.
The first group was the anti-gay category (number 10 on the list).
This links to an email that basically says that not all beliefs represent the values of the US military, and rather than ignoring such views they
should be addressed before they become a problem.
However, there's no command to kill, dismiss or even discipline members.
It could simply mean that especially new members should be warned not to voice views that could go against military cohesion and values.
It appears that some may mistake military culture for racist and homophobic license, or freedom to spread anti-government militia propaganda, which is
understandably not what an integrated army wants.
Only about one paragraph here is actually on anti-gay views.
It would be quite correct to point this out at any integrated work place.
Some preachers have indeed called gays some very perverted things, and spread blatant lies and twisted facts.
I'm sure that professional people who hold those views could still respect their co-workers who do not.
Most of the rest is on extreme anti-immigrant or anti-Muslim groups in the US military.
The second section I looked at was "evangelical Christians" (number 72 on the list).
Yet nothing here is specifically about them.
Instead, it discusses groups like the KKK, militia groups, neo-Nazis, Muslim extremists and gangs, and how some served in and influenced the
I never knew that 53 street-gangs have members in the US military!
Like some of the neo-Nazi groups they also seek to recruit members and expand their influence in the military.
Eventually it has a list (p.24) which includes several groups that could hold extremist views which includes "evangelical Christians", but also
several Jewish and Muslim groups (as well as "Catholics" and Mormons), and it says that the definition of "extremist vs. normal" is somewhat
subjective, and any of these groups could have extremists.
Thus I see no "hit list".
The pages I've seen so far seem to be attempts by the military to stop gangs and militias from subverting the military by explaining the different
groups that may cause problems, and clarifies the groups who may not fund-raise or recruit in the military.
Furthermore, the list in the OP is highly selective, and leaves out the extremist Muslim groups discussed or mentioned in the links, as well as groups
like the Nation of Islam, Catholics and Jewish groups.
It also fails to mention that most of the groups discussed at length are actually hate groups, and actively discriminate against people or preach
They're not the kind of people that even the majority of Christians would like to spend a weekend with, let alone military training.
Yet it seems that many of them do serve in the military, as long as they do so professionally.
On these two links alone the lack of context, and the selection on the OP's list are highly propagandist and misleading.
It's cleverly crafted to make it appear as if there's a conspiracy against anything vaguely Christian in society, when all I've seen is about well
known hate-groups in the US army.
