Are Catholics domestic terrorists? According to an embarrassing FBI memo, the answer is yes. The FBI warns about a group of Radical Traditional Catholics that are supposedly anti-Semitic, anti-immigration, anti-gay, and white-supremacist. The memo, which has since been retracted, also warns about increased hostility toward proponents of abortion. This memo shows the politicization of the FBI and its willingness to label traditional religious conservatives and violate their religious freedom over political differences. The implications for religious freedom are real. Unless your religion supports left-wing ideology, it might be considered a domestic terrorist group. According to this embarrassing FBI memo, traditional religious values aren’t just wrong. They’re a threat to national security.
