PuffHo: Bachmann's Call to Investigate Huma Abedin's MuBro Ties 'Condemned' by Catholic Bishops, 41 Other Groups

Typical for PuffHo, they cannot name one Catholic Bishop who signed his name to this ‘condemnation’, although they mention a group that calls itself “Catholics for choice”. (You know what kind of ‘Catholics’ they are.)

PuffHo also cites the unhinged Sheila Musaji from the ‘American Muslim’ as a credible source. As if!

WASHINGTON — Forty-two religious and secular organizations united on Thursday in condemning conservative lawmakers’ allegations that Muslim-American individuals connected to the U.S. government may be trying to spread the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood.


Back to reality:

Conservative leaders are coming to the defense of Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), whose inquiry into the Muslim Brotherhood’s influence in America has drawn a considerable amount of controversy and debate.

They directed their criticisms at Reps. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), Thomas Rooney (R-Fla.) and Lynn Westmoreland (R-Ga.), who recently wrote to various government agencies and asked them to investigate the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood. In their letters, the lawmakers targeted top State Department official Huma Abedin and several advisersto the Department of Homeland Security.

“[W]e write to raise our voices in protest of your recent letters regarding prominent American Muslim individuals and organizations,” the 42 organizations wrote in a letter to the lawmakers on Thursday. “These letters question the loyalty of faithful Americans based on nothing more than their religious affiliations and what is at best tenuous evidence of their associations. As such, your actions have serious implications for religious freedom and the health of our democracy.”

The signatories include the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, (?)  which often sides with Republicans on social issues, along with the Interfaith Alliance, American Civil Liberties Union, American Baptist Churches USA, NAACP and United Church of Christ.

“Far from supporting the safety of our country, these accusations distract us from examining legitimate threats using proven, evidence-based security strategies,” the groups wrote. “Moreover, we know all too well the danger of casting suspicion on loyal and innocent Americans simply because they hold particular beliefs. We will not stand idly by and allow our country to revive federal investigations into innocent individuals based on their religious adherence.”

The Anti-Defamation League has already condemned the lawmakers, calling their allegations “anti-Muslim conspiracy theories.”

The accusations stem from a report by the Center for Security Policy, a group run by Frank Gaffney, who has been crusading against the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood and Sharia law for years.

Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have condemned their colleagues’ accusations.

Bachmann has maintained that her concerns have been “distorted.” On Tuesday, Gohmert called his critics “numb nuts.”

  1. We are really in deep dung,when our so-called “religious leaders”oppose conservative values. We can expect this from such vermin as the ACLU and NAACP. Thank God there are many truly Christian Blacks,who have no use for either of those nefarious groups.

  2. Strange, I thought all government employees were investigated and cleared of foreign influence.

    Sounds like this lot have something to hide. No apologising for obeying the law.

  3. How is asking for an investigation “dangerous”? Who and or what exactly is in danger from such? That sounds exactly like the not-so-implied, not-so-covert threats we constantly hear from Muslims. It seems as if many of our “elites” are taking up Muslim behaviors and communication techniques. When we are told that what we think and or say is “dangerous” you know that George Orwell is giggling in his grave and that we are about to be pepper sprayed. And, oh, don’t expect your religious elites to protect you from Islam. They will always hold hands, sing kum bah ya and circle the wagons with each other against us lesser beings. Staying in power is the only goal of all clergy. And, they don’t care who they have get in bed with to do so. Adhering to a particular belief is one thing. What Muslims do 24/7/365/1,400+- is another. Furthermore, Catholics especially, need to hose down their own institution thoroughly with disinfectant before hosing the rest of us will their faux sanctimony.
