Here is yet another example of the Clarion Ledger, the local newspaper in Jackson, Mississippi, bringing forth as fact, a bold faced lie. Never in its history has Operation Rescue or Operation Save America ever been tied to a violent crime – not ONE! In the over 57,000 arrests that have taken place at Operation Rescue sponsored events since 1986, there has not been one convicted act of violence anywhere in America, or on the face of this globe.
Why? Because Christians are constrained and restrained by the Gospel of Christ. Those who oppose us are restrained by nothing. They call themselves anarchists for a reason. It was the anarchists who slashed tires, clashed with Christians, smashed cars, and reported a “fetus” being disposed of in a downtown building. Kelli Esters simply forgot to mention that.
As for the expenditure of money by the city of Jackson to protect its lone child-killing center from Christians – what utter foolishness! The city not only paid $24,420 in overtime for officers, but paid thousands more to install state of the art surveillance equipment on city telephone poles on Fondren Street and on State Street. We were there and observed city employees installing these cameras at the mill. What other business do you know that can get the city to install surveillance cameras at tax-payer expense?
The city of Denver was the site of our national event last year. The total expenditure by the Denver Police Department to deal with gentle Christians storming the gates of hell? $00.00. What was the difference between the two cities? The city of Jackson believed the lie. It chose to allow sweet little Susan Hill and abortionist Booker to rip apart children in the peace and tranquility of their abortion mill. It chose the “politically correct” path of pandering to the abortion industry. It chose to criminalize Christians who were giving mothers a real choice. It chose to ignore the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America. It chose death over life – the devil over Jesus.
This is never a good idea.
