Thomas More Center Challenges DHS

The Thomas More Law Center has filed a Freedom of Information Act request with DHS to determine what caused the recent report labeling pro-lifers, veterans, and others who defend the constitution as "domestic terrorists."

From an article on their website:
Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center stated, “This is not an intelligence report but a diatribe against those who oppose the policies of the Obama administration. It is a declaration of war against the American people and our constitution. It is a prelude to extreme gun control legislation and hate speech laws targeting Christian churches and others who oppose abortion and same sex marriage. The federal government should be focusing its attention on the 35 radical Muslim compounds in the U.S. training its followers on how to kidnap and kill Americans.” Read more...

As I said in an earlier message, this DHS thing is manufactured crisis mongering by demonizing your opposition.

I have observed this technique being employed more and more from the left primarily but also on the right. It fosters polarization. It widens whatever gaps exist, and it leads ultimately to broad division and mischaracterization of nearly everyone.

In the hands of the fear mongers it places inordinate power in the hands of those who would use it to remove our liberties.

A strong opposition and challenge to this is essential. So I'm pleased to see a response developing.

To be Christian, pro-life and active in the life of the Church is not to be a terrorist. I applaud the Thomas More Center!
