The Joe Biden Department of Justice raised eyebrows after it granted a plea deal to an LGBT gender-confused activist who confessed to defacing a Catholic church with offensive language, assaulting a church worker, ruining a statue of the Virgin Mary, and resisting arrest.
Some reportedly characterized the person’s actions as a hate crime.
Fox News reviewed that plea agreement and reported that the DOJ wants no jail time for the 31-year-old activist.
“It is very clear that the Biden Justice Department has politicized and weaponized the FACE Act to go after pro-life Christians praying outside of abortion clinics like Mark Houck while turning a blind eye to violent felons terrorizing and badly damaging Catholic churches like Maeve Nota,” Mike Davis, the founder of the Article III Project, told Fox News in an interview.

Davis is referring to news that broke several months back when the DOJ indicted 11 pro-life individuals who were seen protesting outside an abortion clinic. Seven of the protestors were charged with “conspiracy against rights secured by the FACE Act,” an offense that can bring hefty consequences including up to 11 years in prison and potentially a $250,000 fine.
There have been no charges filed whatsoever for the arsonists who attempted to firebomb a pregnancy center, according to a review conducted by The Federalist.
“The Biden Justice Department tried to put Houck in prison for 11 years for defending his son while recommending no jail time for Nota after this deranged trans terrorist badly damaged a Catholic church, fought with the police, assaulted a church employee, and scared the hell out of a little old lady praying,” Davis observed.
The unhinged person who attacked the church reportedly shattered two glass doors with rocks and spray-painted the church’s walls with nasty phrases such as, “Rot in your fake hell,” “Kid groomers,” and “Woman haters,” among other things. The person also allegedly sprayed paint into the face of a church employee who was trying to kick him out.

He was then said to have used his backpack, containing numerous spray paint cans, to break a police car window before turning himself in.
A Police Capt. Darryl McKinney reportedly told Fox News that the damages from the man could legally count as a hate crime.
Originally, the DOJ stuck the man with a charge of destruction of religious property, which could result in a year of prison and $100,000 in fines. Luckily for him, a plea agreement from the DOJ on June 2 allowed for zero jail time and three years of probation.
BizPac Review pointed out that pro-life advocate Mark Houck faced much harsher penalties, including having his home raided by the FBI following a protest he attended outside of a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic.
