In the United States, criminals rule the streets in many major cities, millions of illegal immigrants flow across the open southern border every year, and the Chinese connections of the president’s son are called into question. With that being said, what do you think Biden’s FBI has decided to focus on? Trying to find ways to criminalize Christianity, apparently.
Such was leaked by a whistleblower, former FBI agent Kyle Seraphin, who appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to discuss the issue with FNC’s best host. Seraphin, speaking about what the FBI was up to, said “They have found a gateway in what they think is fringe Catholicism in order to move into Christians in general and declare them to be the actual criminals in this country or the potential terrorists.”
That comment was in reference to a leaked internal document from the FBI’s Richmond, VA field office in which that field office vowed to spy on “radical traditionalist Catholics and their ideology.”
He also commented on how the FBI justifies going after those faithful Christians, saying “a preference for the Catholic Mass in Latin instead of the vernacular and a number of more traditional views on other world religions can amount to an ‘adherence to anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant, anti-LGBTQ and white supremacist ideology.’”

What is all of this leading to? The criminalization of Christians. In Seraphin’s words: “They have found a gateway in what they think is fringe Catholicism in order to move into Christians in general and to declare them to be the actual criminals in this country or the potential terrorists. The whole document basically is written from the perspective of somebody who thinks there are significant abortion rights that need to be defended and also an LGBTQ agenda that has to be pushed down the American people’s throats and these are antithetical to Catholicism.”
After being caught and called out by Seraphin and Tucker, the FBI withdrew the document and somewhat backed off the anti-Catholic, anti-Christian stance it took, saying:
“While our standard practice is to not comment on specific intelligence products, this particular field office product — disseminated only within the FBI — regarding racially or ethnically motivated violent extremism does not meet the exacting standards of the FBI.”
Reporting on from where the report came and how woke non-profits and NGOs exert their influence to push the government into going after conservative wrong-think, Breitbart added that:
The FBI report relied heavily on analysis from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a far-left, scandal-ridden organization, and even included a direct copy of the SPLC list of “Radical Traditional Catholicism Hate Groups” as an appendix to its text.
According to former Attorney General Jeff Session, the SPLC has used the “hate group” designation as a weapon and has “wielded it against conservative organizations that refuse to accept their orthodoxy and choose instead to speak their conscience.”
“They use it to bully and intimidate groups like yours which fight for the religious freedom, the civil rights, and the constitutional rights of others,” he told the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF).
