Speaking on condition of anonymity, sources have told The Examiner that the Obama administration has allegedly engaged in a top secret, highly classified program of infiltrating Christian churches in order to snoop on their activities.
The information disclosed involves a program that has been in place since 2009, after Obama took office. An informant told the Examiner at that time that something covert involving the churches was being implemented but that the information needed to be kept secret until the appropriate time, presumably when some of the heat was off.
According to the source, officials from the Obama administration had contacted certain selected pastors to attempt to solicit their help in identifying and exposing anti-government sentiment within conservative, evangelical churches. The request was worded in a manner that was intended to give the impression that the concern was about potential domestic terrorists who may share some of the same points of view as Oklahoma bomber Timothy McVeigh and other so-called "home grown terrorists"
But one pastor disclosed that the program went much further. He was asked by government operatives to keep his eyes and ears open to those within the congregation who are highly critical of the government, i.e., the Obama administration, and to report such "suspicious" activity to the authorities. The pastor was also told to keep tabs on persons who talk a great deal about being gun owners and/or being a part of the Tea Party.
Further, the pastor stated that in private conversations with other pastors there was a distinct impression that government operatives may even go as far as to join churches for the purpose of snooping into their activities.
None of the information provided by these sources could be verified, however, given that the entire operation was top secret. But in light of recent disclosures of massive government snooping into the lives of multimillions of American citizens, the program to eavesdrop on churches is not difficult to believe or accept.
It has been no secret that Obama has been very unpopular in most conservative, evangelical churches, which include the largest congregations in America. And with the Homeland Security internal memos which show that any person who is a Christian, pro-life, pro-gun, pro-Constitution, and pro-Bible is to be considered a "potential home grown terrorist," the attempt by Obama operatives to infiltrate churches that adhere to this belief system would be a natural outgrowth of their vendetta against conservatives.
We now know, for example, that the IRS engaged in a massive scheme to target conservatives and conservative groups such as the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, the Tea Party, pro-life groups, and even pro-Israel organizations.
The program of infiltration has had a chilling effect on some churches. As one pastor stated, "You have to be careful what you say and who you talk to."
