Faithful America Asks Robert George Why He’s Funding Anti-Muslim Extremists
Earlier we detailed Catholic right leader Robert George’s support of anti-Muslim extremism. Now, Faithful America members are taking these important concerns to Dr. George himself. Since yesterday, over 2600 Faithful America members have sent letters to Professor George asking why he’s funding anti-Muslim extremism and anti-religious bigotry.
Dr. Robert George is a prominent Princeton professor and Catholic scholar who sits on the board of the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation. This foundation has given over 5 million dollars to some of the worst anti-Muslim offenders.
This money supports extremists who falsely believe that major Muslim-American groups are “controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood” and “hostile to the United States and its Constitution.” They use these conspiracy theories to justify draconian policies that criminalize practicing the Muslim faith and prevent Muslims from building houses of worship.
Professor George has stood up for Muslim-Americans in the past, defending them as loyal Americans who deserve religious freedom. But by funding the very extremists responsible for creating this hostile rhetoric, Professor George’s actions speak louder than words.
Faithful America invites you to write your own letter to Dr. George here. Calling out the extremists who lead this effort and those who fund them is the first step towards re-uniting our country.
UPDATE: The number of letters is now over 3300
