* (U) Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.
It is important that we realize what is happening here. How long before praying the rosary in front of an abortion mill is considered a terrorist act? I know it sounds crazy, but it might not be unrealistic in the near future. Right-wing extremist is a negative labeling. They say that right-wing extremists are hate oriented, but those who oppose abortion are showing the exact opposite of hate: LOVE.
Think about who exactly is being targeted here. Is this not a direct attack on the Catholic Church? Now we are seeing people with good Christian values being labeled radical, hateful and discriminatory. Our views very well may be radical to some, but they are not at all hateful. We must realize that this is a tactic to try and change our views. We don’t want to be called right-wing extremists, but is that going to sway our beliefs and thoughts? For the weak maybe, but we of strong Christian faith are not weak but strong. Our faith is in Jesus Christ. We hold fast to the timeless truths of Jesus Christ and we are not swayed by the false pretenses of the time.
Many call us Christians, Catholics in particular, as unenlightened because we believe life is sacred and that marriage is between one man and one woman. If these beliefs, which are timeless truths, are considered by society as being unenlightened thought, than count me in the unenlightened group. If these beliefs, which are timeless truths, are considered by society as right-wing extremist views than consider me a right-wing extremist. If these beliefs, which are timeless truths, are considered bigotry or ignorance and if prayer becomes a crime, then I am willing to go to jail before I am forced to renounce my beliefs. I do not live for this world but for the next. My superior is not an earthly leader or politician, and my beliefs are not based on a democratic vote. My superior and my Lord is Jesus Christ, and my beliefs are based on His teachings and the teachings of the Catholic Church which he founded. Will you back down when someone calls you a name or will you be more determined than ever to defend your faith? If believing in the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church label me as a right-wing extremist, I’ll wear that Scarlet Letter proudly. I will NEVER compromise my faith for anything of this world. I’ll die before I have to renounce my faith and belief in God. I do not compromise ANY of my beliefs. There is but one Truth. I will NEVER let society sway me into believing otherwise. So I ask you again, are you a right-wing extremist?
