In case you haven’t heard, the CPLC and everyone who supports the rights of life from
conception to natural death is fair game for law enforcement officers around the country, according to a Department of Homeland Security report leaked in early April. The 10-page document, called Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment,
is the product of Janet Napolitano, our newly appointed pro-abortion U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security (DHS).
They should have called it “Obama’s REAL Vision: My plan to silence all the voices that don’t agree with my own.”
It’s shorter than the real title, and it’s not laced with bureaucratic jargon that hides the true intention of the report. The document also cites veterans, immigrants and evangelical Christians as possible terrorist threats. Click here to read for yourself
This is such a slap in the face to Catholics everywhere who are following the leadership of Pope Benedict XVI to use our God-given right to protect the dignity of life. It also violates our rights as United States citizens to freedom of speech and religious expression. We’re supposed to be protected under the Constitution against this very thing. Then, why are we being targeted as potential terrorist threats by the same government who is supposed to protect those rights?Fighting Back
On April 15, the Thomas More Law Center filed a federal lawsuit
against Napolitano, claiming the intelligence report “violates the civil liberties of combat veterans as well as American citizens by targeting them for disfavored treatment on account of their political beliefs.” Twenty-two groups, including the American Family Association and the Religious Freedom Coalition, are fighting back
in their own way. They ran a full-page color ad in today’s Washington Times demanding Napolitano's removal, a retraction of the DHS report, and an apology from President Barack Obama.
Obama says he didn't know about the report until it was leaked, but we’ll talk about that later this week…
