Urges Catholics to educate themselves

TYLER, Texas (ChurchMilitant.com) – A Texas prelate is warning Catholics about the dangers of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, urging the faithful to educate themselves about its anti-Catholic agenda.

Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler is directing Catholics to read the actual BLM statement to understand its real aims, underscoring the radical bent of BLM’s ideology.

Branding the leftist group’s agenda “dangerous,” Strickland points to two disturbing points in particular.

Anti-Family, Pro-Depravity

First, BLM seeks to “disrupt” the “Western-prescribed nuclear family structure,” recommending instead for 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.”

Notably absent from this tenet are “fathers,” as Bishop Strickland remarks: “Where is dad?”

Catholic tradition places great emphasis on the family, extolling the Holy Family — Jesus, Mary and Joseph — as the crowning example.

Pope St. John Paul II said the Holy Family is “the prototype and example for all Christian families.”
