That new person you sit next to in your regular pew may not be there for the Sign of Peace. They may be looking at who you connect with in your house of worship. You might even see their weapon and FBI badge if their sports jacket opens.
It was bad enough when the FBI and Justice Department were weaponized against people who had the audacity to speak up for their children at school board meetings. How will Joe Biden and his Administration explain violating the sanctity of our churches to seek out “Radical Christians.” They will, of course, start by denying any knowledge of the “hunt for domestic terrorists” in our churches.
According to internal documents released by the House Judiciary Committee on Monday, the FBI sought to develop sources inside Christian churches and Catholic dioceses to combat domestic terrorism.
The documents were obtained last month by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Rep. Mike Johnson, R-La. The FBI planned to use churches as “new avenues for tripwire and source development,” with a specific focus on “mainline Catholic parishes.”
Regardless of your faith, you should be up in arms with this latest assault on our freedoms by an out-of-control government. Even if you do not claim a faith, you must worry about the next assault. No branch of government has a place in any house of worship. We are fortunate to have the Republicans in charge of the House and Jim Jordan protecting us and bringing these atrocities to light.
The FBI also cited a desire to sensitize religious congregations “to the warning signs of radicalization and enlist their assistance to serve as suspicious activity tripwires.” If the FBI is concerned about radicalization, get out of the Catholic Churches and into a teacher’s lounge.
This rogue effort by the FBI cannot be explained, and somebody has to be identified as the initiator and terminated immediately. If Director Wray continues to plead ignorance, that is reason enough for his head to roll.
The assault on Christianity and specifically Catholic Churches does not end with FBI infiltration but with the Department of Justice (DOJ) ignoring violent assaults on churches. The 69 brutal attacks so far this year against Catholic Churches have escaped the attention of the DOJ. These attacks should be classified as hate crimes against a religious group and its followers. Give them a hate crime or an anti-trans crime; these departments will be all over them.
The House has acted quickly since the Republicans took control in January. What they have found has put a razor focus on the importance of the 2024 election. If the Democrats maintain the Executive Branch and Senate, we will see more of the totalitarian efforts that are being uncovered. Or, we can vote these Democrats, especially the more Radical members, out and regain the freedoms our Constitution guarantees us. The next time you hear a politician from the Left claim they are the “Democracy” Party, push back with the facts. They are out to destroy our freedoms and control us as much as they can get away with.
