The Department of Homeland Security has shared intelligence with the Catholic Church about a planned “Night of Rage” that has been threatened to be unleashed by pro-abortion groups if Roe v. Wade is overturned by the Supreme Court.
The document, labeled an “urgent memo,” was released to all clergy by the Diocese of Stockton, Calif., and states that a DHS agent informed that that an “extremist group” has been calling for attacks on churches the night that the ruling is released.
While the threats are not specific, DHS agent Jesse Rangel informed the Church that “large groups with cells nationwide have already been discovered ‘casing’ parishes,” including those in California, per Newsweek. As such, the diocese issued a “critical notice” for clergy and further instructed them to “develop a plan should you see or hear anything suspicious.”
“Make sure you have ushers and or security available during your services and perhaps identify who among your volunteers and parishioners are law enforcement,” the memo reads.
These threats, and the intelligence, were noted by pro-life activist Lila Rose, who is the founder of Live Action.
