The Democrats’ war on Christianity is growing more aggressive by the day.
How far the Biden administration is willing to go is truly frightening.
And Joe Biden’s FBI just got caught trying to plant tripwire informants in Catholic places of worship.
The attacks on Christianity are ramping up and becoming more and more violent and oppressive.
Targeting traditional Catholics
FBI Director Christopher Wray is in the spotlight over a memo that revealed the FBI targeted traditionalist Catholics by asking church leaders to help monitor parishioners and report them to the government.
The internal FBI memo talked about tracking interactions between so-called “radical-traditionalist Catholics” and white nationalist groups.
It also proposed meeting with church leaders to teach them how to spot “warning signs” of radicalization.
The shocking FBI memo, along with other internal documents, were released by the House Judiciary Committee.
And now Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) has subpoenaed Wray to testify on the issue.
“Based on the limited information produced by the FBI to the Committee, we now know that the FBI relied on at least one undercover agent to produce its analysis, and that the FBI proposed that its agents engage in outreach to Catholic parishes to develop sources among the clergy and church leadership to inform on Americans practicing their faith,” Jordan wrote in his letter to Wray.
Failure to comply
In the letter, Chairman Jordan also blasted Wray for failing to comply with the Committee’s original request for documents.
“This information is outrageous and only reinforces the Committee’s need for all FBI material responsive to our request,” Jordan wrote. “The documents produced to date show how the FBI sought to enlist Catholic houses of worship as potential sources to monitor and report on their parishioners.”
But Jordan was not done with Wray.
“Americans attend church to worship and congregate for their spiritual and personal betterment,” Jordan’s letter continued. “They must be free to exercise their fundamental First Amendment rights without worrying that the FBI may have planted so-called ‘tripwire’ sources or other informants in their houses of worship.”
The Weaponization of Government Committee tweeted a copy of Jordan’s letter to Wray.
“#BREAKING: We now know the FBI, relying on information derived from at least one employee, sought to use local religious organizations as ‘new avenues for tripwire and source development,’” the Committee tweeted.

The internal FBI memo was officially rescinded by the Bureau after whistleblower Kyle Seraphin published it on UncoverDC.com in February.
Relying on biased and partisan sources
Of course, the damage had already been done.
Chairman Jordan said the memo relies on “biased and partisan sources, including the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), Salon, and The Atlantic, to support its assessment.”
Jordan also noted the SPLC “identifies the broad term ‘Christian identity’ as a hate group — a term that could arguably encompass millions of Americans with sincerely held religious beliefs.”
As Jordan put it, “the fact that the FBI would blindly accept and regurgitate the SPLC’s spin is highly concerning and undercuts the FBI’s assertion that it is unbiased and politically neutral.”
The Daily Signal also reported earlier this month that the FBI looks for a “glossary of terms” online that they believe indicate someone is involved with “violent extremism.”
According to the FBI’s glossary of terms, certain words are allegedly code for extremists to communicate with one another online.
Some of the words the FBI includes in this list are terms like “redpilled,” “based,” “looksmaxing,” and the names “Chad” and “Stacy.”
The FBI also flags certain phrases like “it’s over” and “just be first.”
“NEW: Docs we obtained show how @FBI equates protected online speech to violence. According to @FBI using the terms ‘based’ or ‘red pilled’ are signs of ‘Racially or Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremism,’” the Heritage Foundation’s Oversight Project tweeted on April 3.
This is a scary time to be a Christian or a conservative in America.
