GOP lawmakers call for DOJ probe of anti-Catholic hate crimes
By Ramon Tomey // Oct 03, 2020

Republican congressmen, led by Indiana Rep. Jim Banks, wrote a letter to Attorney General Bill Barr on Sept. 25, calling for an investigation on the recent surge of hate crimes against Catholic properties. According to the letter, 57 instances of hate crimes against Catholics were reported since May 2020 -- compared to the 53 instances reported for the whole year of 2018.


The letter also noted that the crimes not only target individuals and property but also “American society as a whole.” It reiterated the Department of Justice’s obligation to uphold both “the physical safety of Catholics” and “the integrity of the American system” by investigating the perpetrators of the violence and if they have any organizational or ideological ties.

Attacks involved destruction of churches and statues

The letter by Banks’ group mentioned a few reports of crimes targeted against Catholic churches and statues.

According to a report by the Los Angeles Times, the San Gabriel Mission Church caught fire on July 11, causing extensive damage to the more than two-centuries-old church. The conflagration came after local activists denounced the mission’s founder St. Junipero Serra; the saint’s statue was subsequently relocated to placate critics.

Meanwhile in Florida, an attacker rammed the front door of Ocala’s Queen of Peace Catholic Church while people were setting up for mass – on the same day as the San Gabriel Mission fire. The attacker then attempted to burn the structure by throwing an incendiary device. No injuries were reported in the Florida incident.

Churches were not the only targets of the attacks: Even statues of the Virgin Mary weren’t spared.

Unknown vandals tried to burn a statue of the Virgin Mary near the St. Peter’s Parish Church in Boston, Massachusetts last July 12. The vandals set fire to the plastic flowers tucked in the statue’s hands, but the attempt only blackened the upper part of the statue. The attempted burning of the Virgin Mary’s statue in Boston came a day after a similar incident in Chattanooga, Tennessee, in which vandals beheaded the Virgin Mary’s statue at St. Stephen’s Catholic Church.

A more recent attack was captured on video Sept. 11 at Brooklyn’s Shrine Church of Our Lady of Solace. An individual went over fences bordering a statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe and toppled it, breaking the image.

The attacks are part of Black Lives Matter’s plan to burn America to the ground

The attacks outlined in the letter by Banks and other House Republicans follow riots instigated by Black Lives Matter protesters. Supposedly non-violent protests devolve into widespread looting and destruction of property, thanks to Antifa instigators blending in with people exercising their First Amendment rights.

Black Lives Matter protesters are no longer content with burning down private businesses and government buildings. They have now set their sights on Christian statues and churches, as seen in how they illegally occupied St. John’s Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C. in June. The acronym BHAZ, which stood for Black House Autonomous Zone, was spray-painted at the columns of the church—just across the White House.

Aside from evil deeds such as destroying buildings and statues, Black Lives Matter also espouses evil ideas. One of its goals is to destroy the traditional family unit consisting of mother, father and child and replace it with a new kind of family similar to the Marxist concept of a collective. According to a statement on the organization’s website, which was eventually deleted, it aimed to “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure” with “extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another … to the degree that mothers, parents and children are comfortable.”

Black Lives Matter has turned away from God and embraced evil, resulting in a Faustian bargain where the organization possesses strength in numbers at the cost of members’ humanity. The movement’s destruction of Catholic churches and defacement of statues of the Virgin Mary serve as proof of its gradual descent towards perdition—unless people return to the Lord and repent for their misdeeds.

Until then, Black Lives Matter will continue to burn every building, loot every business and murder everyone who opposes—until it reaches the ultimate goal: A literal hell on earth.
