American Minute with Bill Federer May 2 - J. Edgar Hoover

American Minute with Bill Federer
  May 2 - J. Edgar Hoover

The director of the FBI, J. Edgar Hoover, died MAY 2, 1972.

For 48 years, under eight Presidents, J. Edgar Hoover oversaw the Federal Bureau of Investigation, becoming famous for his dramatic campaigns to stop gangsters and organized crime.

Hoover established the use of fingerprints in law enforcement and successfully tracked down well-known criminals.


FDR gave Hoover the task of investigating foreign espionage and left-wing activist groups.

J. Edgar Hoover stated:

"The criminal is the product of spiritual starvation. Someone failed miserably to bring him to know God, love Him and serve Him."

In the introduction to Edward L.R. Elson's book, America's Spiritual Recovery, 1954, J. Edgar Hoover wrote:

"We can see all too clearly the devastating effects of Secularism on our Christian way of life. The period when it was smart to 'debunk' our traditions undermined...high standards of conduct.

A rising emphasis on materialism caused a decline of 'God-centered' deeds and thoughts."


J. Edgar Hoover continued:

"The American home...ceased to be a school of moral and spiritual education.

When spiritual guidance is at a low ebb, moral principles are in a state of deterioration.

Secularism advances when men forget God."
