The FBI Planted Undercover Agents Inside Churches

The Biden FBI has been exposed for planting undercover agents inside churches to spy on believers. For a country founded on religious liberty, this is an egregious offense against all faiths.

Just a couple of months ago, we reported on the FBI whistleblower who had produced an alleged internal FBI memo with instructions for agents on how to spy on “radical traditionalist Catholics and their ideology.” The FBI disavowed the document at the time, but we are never willing to trust any arm of the Biden Administration at its word, so we filed an URGENT FOIA request demanding all records pertaining to the memo.

Now it appears they actually placed agents inside a church at least once – that we know about.

As reported by Newsweek:

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) allegedly used an undercover agent to target the clergy and leadership of the Catholic Church, according to GOP Representative Jim Jordan.

On Monday, Jordan, who chairs the House Judiciary Committee, sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray alerting Wray that he was being subpoenaed for an investigation into the agency’s handling of a domestic extremism analysis that proposed developing sources among church leaders to look for signs of radicalization among Catholic parishioners.

The subpoena is the latest development in Jordan’s probe into the FBI’s alleged misuse of domestic violent extremism resources. House Republicans first accused Wray of exploiting those resources for “political purposes” after an eight-paged internal memo was leaked by a former special agent.

So an undercover agent, under orders from the Biden FBI, posed as a fellow worshiper to spy on what the church was teaching and essentially recruit new informants as well. This is reprehensible behavior.

In Matthew 10:16, Jesus told his disciples: “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves.” Who expected the FBI to actually take a page out of our book? Of course, the Deep State had to twist it, sending their wolves to hide amongst the sheep. Churches welcome newcomers – it is their moral obligation to minister to their community. The Biden Administration knowingly manipulated that obligation for its own radical agenda.

The unsuspecting parishioners probably thought a visitor had come to worship and pray with them, but in fact, the visitor was Biden’s spy sent into the church to look over their shoulders. That is not only shameful but also simply un-American.

Congressman Mike Johnson (LA-4), who serves on the House Judiciary Committee, joined our broadcast today to share more details about what the FBI was really up to and how this one agent was likely just the tip of the spear:

Everybody just heard that right. The FBI itself was seeking to recruit undercover agents in Christian and Catholic churches. And the reason, the purported reason, is because they were concerned with what they called “the threat” – this is a quote – “the threat of radical traditionalist Catholics,” e.g., pro-lifers. Those who actually practice their faith, right? That’s a threat to this FBI, to the Biden Administration and the White House, and the leadership of the DOJ, and so they were going to dispatch agents out to the churches to go and find spies inside the hallways. It’s unbelievable.

These attacks are not just an affront to religious liberty, but they’re also an attack on life. Why else would the Biden Administration be spying on churches and believers other than because they are specifically pro-life churches and believers and more likely to be actively involved in the fight to defend unborn babies?

One could almost connect the dots here. Planned Parenthood donated millions to the President’s campaign, as well as to many other prominent lawmakers on the Left. Now the Biden Administration is targeting pro-lifers and Christians.

Even if it only was this one instance, which seems doubtful, the story is out. Other churches might think twice before preaching against abortion. This is a frightening pattern being set by this Administration, and it must be exposed, and everyone involved must be held accountable.

Today’s full Sekulow broadcast includes more analysis of this despicable ploy by the Biden FBI, as well as more discussion with Rep. Mike Johnson.

Now we are preparing to take the FBI to court because it has thus far refused to comply with our FOIA on this matter. We will get to the bottom of this and defeat the corruption.
