One of the pillars of the Black Lives Matter movement is to tear down society as we know it.
And one of their first targets is Christianity.
But one Catholic Bishop is fighting back against Black Lives Matter’s lies and hatred.
Time and time again, the Catholic Church has been in the forefront of fighting for racial equality.
In fact, Catholic theologians were some of the first individuals to speak out against slavery.
Famed Spanish missionary Bartolomé de Las Casas is remembered in history for his adamant defiance to the foundation of slavery in the new world all the way back in the 1500s.
The Catholic Church’s defiance to injustice extends to calling out political extremism of the far-left.
Pope Pius XI was famously against Communism, and said, “No Catholic could subscribe even to moderate socialism.”
With its past of standing against extremism and radicalism, no Catholic should ever support Black Lives Matter’s ideology.
Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas agrees.
He called on Catholics to read the actual Black Lives Matter website with their own eyes and see the radical statement of ideals that is not compatible with Catholicism.
Specifically, he targets the fact that Black Lives Matter’s website seeks to “disrupt” the “Western-prescribed nuclear family structure.”
They encourage people to support “each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.”
Bishop Strickland rightfully pointed out how Black Lives Matter never once mentioned fathers in their screed, asking, “Where is dad?”
After all, Catholic teaching places a large emphasis on the family, extolling the Holy Family, consisting of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph as a crowning example.
Black Lives Matter also supports the far-left LGBT agenda, writing, “We foster a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).”
Pointing out these facts, Bishop Strickland says that no Catholic can ascribe to the ideology of Black Lives Matter.
This is proven even further by the fact that Black Lives Matter has attacked Catholics.
In St. Louis, Missouri they are targeting a statue to the city’s namesake, King Louis IX, who is a Catholic Saint.
They even viciously attacked Catholics for supporting and praying at the statue of King Louis IX.
While they were praying the Rosary at the foot of the statue of King Louis IX, Black Lives Matter activists started to shout at and assault them as they prayed.
This version of Black Lives Matter thinks it’s okay to harass Catholics praying the rosary with air horns and cursing. This is insanity. Where is the media coverage? pic.twitter.com/ldx9r1CExr

Many Catholic faithful now find themselves in agreement with Bishop Strickland about Black Lives Matter.
