A Roman Catholic church in Michigan is apologizing after one of its priests took to the pulpit to compare “evil” Black Lives Matter protesters to the 9/11 terrorists.
In a homily live-streamed on the Church of the Divine Child’s Facebook page Saturday, the Rev. Paul Graney marked the previous day’s 19th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks — and said that Antifa and Black Lives Matter demonstrators were now the “terrorists attacking” the US “riot by riot.”
“Al-Qaeda’s goal was to come to the United States and kill Americans. Really just wanted to wipe America off the map. And they would have done it if they could,” Graney told his congregants in suburban Detroit.
“But today, those who we see wanting to bring down America are Americans, and they want to do it under the facade of justice, freedom and love,” the priest said.
“But it is all a big bunch of baloney. It’s anti-Christian. It’s anti-family. It’s evil.”
