What would be the point? To change their minds? If they go to the trouble of defacing the paint on their cars with bumper stickers, then they are probably not susceptible to questioning their own beliefs, because it takes a certain amount of deep-seated conviction that a position is right, before you proclaim it to the world served up alongside your exhaust fumes.
There are extremely few Catholics involved with American-style racist hate groups, because those groups tend to be anti-Catholic in the first place.
As for the pro-abortion stickers, why not ask the owner of the car how belching out greenhouse gases leaves the planet with a "choice"?
I am not sure what the statistics are with Catholic members in hate groups but I am sure there are probably some albeit few in number.
Pro-Choice is far more common. Now I am not sure as the relevancy of defacing the paint on a vehicle but there are plenty of political stickers on vehicle bumpers (chrome not paint if that makes it easier for you to grasp) in my parish parking lot.
I guess I could complicate matters since a pro-choice sticker on a Prius is pretty common where I am located; so what action would be appropriate or what would be expected from me as a parishoner?
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center the following groups are extremist hate groups that use Catholic idealogy:
Alliance for Catholic Tradition
Catholic Apologetics International Publishing, Inc
Catholic Family News/Catholic Family Ministries, Inc
Culture Wars (group)/Fidelity Press
The Fatima Crusader/International Fatima Rosary Crusade
In the Spirit of Chartres Committee
Legion of St. Louis
Most Holy Family Monastery
OMNI Christian Book Club
The Remnant/The Remnant Press
Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary
St. Joseph Forum
St. Michael's Parish/Mount St. Michael
Tradition in Action
I presume 100% of these members are Catholic and they belong to a recognized hate groups.
As always we pray for them to turn their beliefs to something more productive.
