(RawStory) Family Research Council President Tony Perkins has warned that President Barack Obama could be planning to create a special “watch list” for Catholics and evangelical Christians to prevent them from buying guns.

On his Wednesday Washington Watch broadcast, Perkins said he was “concerned” about a bipartisan deal in the Senate that would close the so-called gun show loophole and require background checks for Internet gun sales.

“This idea of background checks is very concerning given the fact that the United States military has been increasingly showing hostility toward evangelicals and Catholics as being somehow threats to national security and people that need to be watched,” Perkins opined.
