Is it possible to attend Catholic Mass and be branded a domestic terrorist? According to the FBI – yes! In a recent bombshell report, an FBI whistleblower exposes the agency’s tactics targeting those who attend mass, and you simply won’t believe all of the jaw-dropping details.
The FBI believes Latin Mass-loving Catholics have embraced white supremacy, reports whistleblower Kyle Seraphin on UncoverDC. Based on an intelligence bulletin written by the FBI’s Richmond, VA office, the FBI cited data from the Southern Poverty Law Center, which has been widely debunked.
The FBI portrays Catholics who prefer Latin Mass as “Radical-Traditionalist Catholics,” meaning they adhere to anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant, anti-LGBTQ, and white supremacist ideologies. In the bulletin, the writer describes RTCs as “typically characterized by a rejection of the Second Vatican Council.”
Seraphin, a former 6-FBI agents for 6 years who was indefinitely suspended from the agency in June 2022, said that “An intelligence analyst within the Richmond Field Office of the FBI released in a new finished intelligence product dated January 23, 2023, on Racially or Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremists (RMVE) and their interests in ‘Radical-Traditionalist Catholics’ or RTCs. The document assesses with ‘high confidence’ the FBI can mitigate the threat of Radical-Traditionalist Catholics by recruiting sources within the Catholic Church.”
A number of SPLC articles are cited in that bulletin, along with the SPLC’s list of “Radical Traditional Catholicism Hate Groups.” According to Seraphin, it was the SPLC that the author of the bulletin used to determine that these Catholics were white supremacists, LGBTQ-phobic, misogynistic anti-Semites.
As Seraphin told The Daily Signal, “I got briefings that SPLC wasn’t legitimate when I was at Quantico.”
The January 23, 2023 document from the FBI is listed as unclassified and for official use only. It is titled “Interest of Racially or Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremists in Radical-Traditionalist Catholic Ideology Almost Certainly Presents New Mitigation Opportunities.”
The document reads, “FBI Richmond assesses the increasingly observed interest of racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists (RMVEs) in radical-traditionalist Catholic (RTC) ideology almost certainly presents opportunities for threat mitigation through the exploration of new avenues for tripwire and source development. FBI Richmond makes this assessment with high confidence based on FBI investigations, local law enforcement agency reporting, and liaison reporting, with varying degrees of corroboration and access.”
In short, as noted by the Post Millennial, the FBI said they used a variety of sources, but instead they relied on the SPLC, Salon and The Atlantic, and they use a person’s attendance at Catholic Mass to determine their degree of extremism, noting that their threat level decreases if the person declines in attendance.
In this bulletin, the FBI uses a citizen’s Catholic faith as a litmus test for their political ideologies and likelihood of being a public threat.
The bulletin further says that “Open source reporting and FBI investigations have noted a growing overlap between the far-right white nationalist movement and RTCs. Illustrative of this has been the increasing collaboration of the far-right Catholic media outlet Christian Militant… with the America First/’groyper’ movement.”
The bulletin also includes a list of hate groups as defined by the SPLC, along with articles sourced from leftist outlets.
It is unbelievable to think that a person attending a Catholic Mass can now be profiled as a domestic terrorist according to the FBI. This has gone too far and must be resisted if Americans are going to continue to enjoy the freedom of religion our rights guarantee us. This tactic used by the FBI is unacceptable, and all citizens should strive together for justice in this matter, because it’s clear that the agency will go after anyone in their way in order to push the left’s radical agenda.
