Faithful America is a far left-wing entity (it is not a true organization) that pretends to be Christian while working hard to undermine Christianity. It has a particular hatred of Catholics. Its latest salvo is hurled at Bishop Joseph Strickland.
Newsweek, which acts like a PR outlet for Faithful America, said that “Thousands of Christians have signed a petition thanking Pope Francis for removing Joseph Strickland as the bishop of Tyler, Texas.”
They previously attacked the bishops’ conference.
Bishop Strickland is a “partisan false prophet who has absolutely no business continuing to hold a position of moral authority in the Body of Christ.” These are the words of Rev. Nathan Empsall, head honcho.
Empsall is not a Catholic. He is an Episcopalian priest. Thus he has no standing in evaluating the authenticity of the Catholic clergy. Moreover, we’re not even sure he is a man. Anyone who likes to be referred to as he/him makes us wonder.
Empsall boasts that Faithful America is “the largest online community of grassroots Christians” in the nation. Wrong.
To begin with, there is no such thing as an “online community.” It would be more honest to say that Faithful America has a website. Most important, there is nothing “grassroots” about this phony Christian entity—it is funded by George Soros and other left-wing organizations, such as the Arcus Foundation.
Further proof that Faithful America is a fraud can be seen by considering its contact information. Workers are allowed to work from home. That’s because there is no office. The address listed on their website is “206 Elm Street, Unit #202898” in New Haven, Connecticut. That is the street address of USPS Yale Station. Oh, yes, Amazon has a locker at that address as well.
Empsall and his little Soros-funded crew are frauds.
