UPDATE: Knestout issues statement.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) as well as the Diocese of Richmond have remained conspicuously silent on Wednesday’s release of the bombshell memorandum from the FBI’s Richmond, Virginia office declaring that “Radical Traditionalist Catholic Ideology” is a magnet for “violent extremists.”
Both organizations have neglected to mention, in any capacity, the memo which has already been decried as “anti-Catholic” by Virginia’s attorney general. LifeSiteNews has repeatedly reached out to the USCCB and the Diocese of Richmond with requests for comment, with no response as of publishing.
Meanwhile, the document has been condemned by Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas, by non-Catholic Fox News host Tucker Carlson, by the attorneys general of 20 states, including Virginia’s AG Jason Mirayes, and other public figures including journalist Jack Posobiec, and U.S. Representative and former Physician to the President Ronny Jackson.
