FBI improperly investigated Catholic Worker

Catholic World News - September 27, 2010

An inspector general’s report has found that between 2001 and 2006, the FBI wrongly added Catholic Worker and four other advocacy groups to its watchlist for terrorism. In Catholic Worker’s case, the FBI was improperly “targeting lawful civil disobedience.”

The Catholic Worker movement was founded by Dorothy Day in 1933; her cause for canonization has begun in the Archdiocese of New York. The movement's houses, which work to assist the poor, are autonomous.

    So who's next on their watch list? The Secular Franciscan Order? Pax Christi? Members of the St Vincent DePaul Society?
