At least 15 people have been killed and two others injured following an attack on a Catholic church in north-eastern Burkina Faso on Sunday.

It took place during Sunday worship in Essakane village in Oudalan province – close to the border with Mali. Few details have been given.
A church official indicated the gunmen were suspected Islamist militants.

Africs without a doubt is the most dangerous location to be a practicing Catholic. The example above is sadly the rule rather than the exception, but it does not get coverage in the U.S.

Then again, being a Catholic is now a suspicious activity by the Feds.

A conservative government watchdog has released almost 100 pages of FBI documents it says show the agency was not fully forthcoming about its actions surveilling and targeting Catholic churches.

“FBI Director Christopher Wray had told congressmen that the memo was ‘a single product by a single field office,’ but the records uncovered by Judicial Watch show that it was “Reviewed by: OGC/CDC [Office of General Counsel/Chief Deputy Counsel],'” Judicial Watch posted in a press release Friday.

Judicial Watch obtained the documents through a FOIA request related to an internal FBI memo leaked earlier this year, which revealed that the agency had efforts underway to identify and treat Catholics as “potential terrorists.”

“The records also indicate coordination with officials from Portland and Milwaukee,” the press release said.

The FBI Richmond internal memo, titled “Interest of Racially or Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremists in Radical-Traditionalist Catholic Ideology Almost Certainly Presents New Mitigation Opportunities,” was leaked in January and drew instant criticism from Republicans.

It identified “radical-traditionalist Catholic[s]” as potential “racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists” and said that “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.”


Heavily redacted records show FBI’s targeting of Catholics went beyond what they’ve claimed: watchdog (

A preview of upcoming “attractions”:

In our societal effort to be all inclusive, we have created a safe space for everybody but ourselves and our loved ones.

A mayor attack on a US Catholic church is due. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops will not side with the flock but with the wolves by keeping the sheepdogs away from services and “forgiving” the killers.

I shan’t forgive the killers or the Bishops.

  1. It’s way past time for the Believers to form mutual aid societies. Protecting the flock and the faith in the spirit of St. Michael the Archangel.

    1. Nor need the pope be, if I remember my canon law properly.
      Not that there’d have been any chance of that for the past, oh, 1600 years or so.

  2. “First they’ll come for the Saturday people, then they’ll come for the Sunday people.” Something I heard a while back, wish I could remember where.

    1. Yep. People who want to hate something will always find something to hate.
      If there are no more Jews, they’ll hate Catholics. If there are no more of them, they’ll hate Protestants. If there are no more of them, they’ll hate Mormons, or Hindus, or Buddhists, or whatever.
      Hell, if there were nothing but Muslims left anywhere on Earth, there’s always the Sunni/Shia thing; they’ll just hate each other.
      Hate of the “Other” is hardwired into their religion and Holy Book. They’ll always find something.

  3. It is interesting to me that everyone is so afraid to offend, much less harm, any member of the “religion of peace”, but for some reason no one hesitates to offend, and attack the violent hateful Catholics.
    The time is overdue to point out the outright falsehood of muslims and islam. We need to start calling it the hateful, violent, and oppressive political system disguised as a religion.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
