Randall Terry on abortion and the death of George Tiller

terry

If we ever hope to make it illegal from conception until birth to slay an innocent human being – we are going to have to declare the truth without equivocation.
    
WASHINGTON, DC (Catholic Online) – “Tell a man whose house is on fire to give a moderate alarm; tell him to moderately rescue his wife from the hands of the ravisher; tell the mother to gradually extricate her babe from the fire into which it has fallen; — but urge me not to use moderation in a cause like the present. I am in earnest — I will not equivocate — I will not excuse — I will not retreat a single inch — AND I WILL BE HEARD.” – William Lloyd Garrison

Because of the slaying of George Tiller, the pro-life movement is at a critical crossroads, one that could determine whether we proceed on a path to victory or to defeat.

George Tiller’s death has the potential to drive us back into a corner, or to propel us forward to victory. Which way will it go? That depends on us.

Come to South Bend’s Notre Dame and get arrested for pro-life

Dr. Alan Keyes and 24 others arrested at Notre Dame for peaceful witness for Life:

Keyes Calls on pro-lifers nationwide to join him as he gets arrested again.

You Have an Opportunity to Make History

 

Hello Pro-Life Friend:

Every so often, there are historic social battles that are referred to for years – sometimes for generations. This is one of those moments to make history.

In that light, I BEG YOU in the name of Jesus Christ to read this entire letter, and pray about your role in the historic “Battle for Notre Dame.” There are several ways you can be a part of making history – not just watching it unfold. So I beg you again in Christ’s name: read this entire letter. It is unlike anything you have read before.

Call #1: Come and Join Us – In Jail

Dr. Alan Keyes, a true American Hero, issues this call:

“…I will go to South Bend. I will step foot on the Notre Dame campus [AGAIN!] to lift up the standard that protects the life of the innocent children of this and every generation. If this be trespass, then forgive us our trespasses and join us in trespassing until the South Bend jail is filled to overflowing with witnesses to truth; filled beyond capacity; filled until we break the most onerous shackles of all- the ones that bind the heart and mind to evil and our nation to the path of its destruction.”

As you may know, Dr. Alan Keyes, myself, and 23 other pro-life Christians have already been arrested for walking quietly and prayerfully on Notre Dame’s campus.

Our crime? We walked, prayed, and pushed baby carriages that held a baby doll…sprinkled with “stage blood.” The strollers had signs or stickers citing Obama’s direct involvement in killing the innocent in America and around the world.

Notre Dame called the police, arrested us, and put us in jail. (Everyone has been bailed out, thank God!)

Our quiet witness is making the news all over the country. It was done to prove a point: that Notre Dame – supposedly a Christian university, pledged to defend the lives of the innocent – is honoring someone who slays the innocent!

But we are not done fighting – we are raising the stakes: we are looking for 100 brave souls to join us on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (May 15-17) – the weekend of Obama’s speech – to join us in walking and praying on the campus again – holding signs, or pushing carriages. We have about 30 committed to go so far.

(And by the way, if you get arrested, the charge will be “trespass.” You will NOT face a felony; you will NOT lose your right to vote, etc. This is the type of “civil disobedience” that was practiced by Dr. Martin Luther King, Susan B. Anthony, and other American Heroes. If you have a “record,” you will be in great company!)

(Click here to help with bail costs, and other expenses.)

Dr. Keyes is calling on pro-lifers to join him…in jail.

Will you be among those who make history?

If 100 brave souls hear the call of God’s Spirit in their hearts to come and sacrifice their freedom for a few hours or a few days this weekend…it is historic. If 100 stouthearted Christians stand against this treachery with the witness of going to jail, it will be a historic landmark in the battle to end child-killing.

 

And you can have the privilege of being arrested with Dr. Keyes in this Life and Death struggle – one that may well be in history books in the future.

 

Surely the witness of jail is not too radical! Think of Peter and Paul. Or, in modern times, think of Martin Luther King, or Susan B. Anthony. If we celebrate Dr. King’s holiday, we are showing our support for peaceful witness against evil – even if it means getting arrested.

 

The Notre Dame/Obama harlotry is so vile and corrupt that the depth of the evil cannot be overstated. That being true, praying and witnessing, (and going to jail for it!) is a powerful witness to decry this evil, and defend the honor of the babies, the Church, “Our Lady,” and Christ Himself.

 

In that light, I beg you to come to “the battle of Notre Dame.” Come and be arrested with Dr. Alan Keyes this weekend. (Dr. Keyes intends to go back on campus Friday; others will go Saturday and Sunday. Come on whatever day is most convenient.)

 

We can provide temporary and free housing for you over the weekend if you need it…that is, until the St. Joseph County Jail is your temporary residence. You must bring your own sleeping bag and pillow. (This is “indoor camping.”)

Call #2: Preach to Obama When He Arrives

 

If you are unsure about going to jail, join us this weekend at the entrances where the Obama motorcade will enter Notre Dame.

We need hundreds and thousands of men and women to peacefully, patiently hold signs around Notre Dame, so that as President Obama arrives, he will see and hear the truth.

In this way we will rebuke Obama – like John the Baptist rebuked Herod – for his defiance of the laws of God, and his slaughter of the innocents around the world.

This will be an international news story. Because of those sitting in jail, and the masses standing vigil at Notre Dame, this will get international coverage. (National media are already running stories on this; the coverage will be huge this weekend.)

Let America see – let the WORLD see – that there is still a remnant of the Church Militant that is prepared to stand and fight for Truth, Justice, and Life itself. Let them see that there are THOUSANDS who oppose Obama’s agenda of death.

(Click here to help with the costs of signs and banners.)

Call #3: Hold a Solidarity Rally in Your Community

If you cannot come, hold a peaceful rally and press conference in your community on Friday or Saturday, at 12:00 Noon, in solidarity with our efforts.

We are looking for 100 courageous Christians in 100 communities across America to stand for one hour at their local Cathedral, or City Hall, decrying this outrage with us.

Our purpose for this is to get more and more press coverage that tars Obama with the blood of the innocent that are dying under his policies.

If you have never done something like this – DO NOT FEAR! Go to our website, and click on “Marching Orders.” It gives you step by step instructions on how to hold a demonstration, and how to contact the media. If you follow the instructions we give, you will get media coverage. Go to http://www.StopObamaNotreDame.com and click on Marching orders.

If you will do this, contact us immediately, and we will put your city, time, location, etc. on our web site, to show the growing number of cities that are standing against this evil.

(Click here to contribute to our media and web costs.)

Call #4: If You Can’t Go to Jail, Help Pay the Bail

Friend, we have already spent thousands on bail for those who have been arrested.

In addition, we have spent tens of thousands on other aspects of this battle. (Press releases, printing, postage, banners, transportation, lodging, food, office expenses, utilities, and more. And none of our staff – myself included – are getting paid for this.)

We need your help financially. If you can give $100, do it now. If you can give $1,000, we will use every penny in this historic battle. Again, none of the staff are getting paid. This is a labor of love for God, the Babies, and the Truth.

Please give something – anything – to show your solidarity with this momentous effort. (Contributions are not tax-deductible – for obvious reasons!)

Here’s a Recap of the Four Calls

1: Come and Join Us – In Jail

2: Come and Preach to Obama When He Arrives

3: Hold a Solidarity Rally in Your Community

4: If You Can’t Go to Jail, Help Pay the Bail

I beg you – with all my heart – to take time now, and pray.

Ask God what He would have you to do at this historic moment. Ask Him in sincerity, telling Him: “I will do whatever you ask.”

Go to: StopObamaNotreDame.com to watch a video of Dr. Keyes and Myself, calling people to come to Notre Dame. And you can see a “testimony video” of some of the men and women who have already been arrested. Listen to their words; feel their heart!

Please do what you can in this critical battle.

Join us here. Hold a rally in your town. Give as large a gift as you can. Forward this to a friend. And please, pray for us with all your heart.

Founder, Operation Rescue

P.S. I often think of the men and women – alive right now – who could have stood with Dr. King in his great battles, but instead sat on the sideline and watched. I bet that NOW they wish they had stood with him in battle. You are in such a moment of time. You have a chance to make history, not just watch it. Please, join us in any way you can. We are not just fighting for the babies; we are fighting for the survival of our country.

Arrested at Notre Dame

By Randall A. Terry

Six of us went to Notre Dame on Friday, May 1, to make a visual statement about child-killing and ND’s invitation to President Obama to speak at the ’09 graduation.

We pushed baby carriages with dolls covered with stage blood, and a bumper sticker stating:

Obama ’09

One Dead baby at a Time

Notre Dame

William Kee and I were arrested immediately. The others were given the chance to leave, and did so.

I was taken alone to a cell on campus where I prayed the sorrowful mysteries. With each mystery, my fear for Notre Dame grew; Jesus, betrayed by Judas and abandoned by His friends; “He came unto His own, and his own did not receive Him;” “I received these wounds in the House of my friends…” The irony was chilling.

We were transferred to jail – at Notre Dame’s order – for our peaceful, visual defense of the babies; meanwhile Notre Dame plunges ahead with her plan to honor the premier child-slayer of the western hemisphere.

Obama will be honored and welcomed on campus, though the innocent die at his command; we were jailed, and banned forever from the campus, because we defended those dying at his order.

I had the unshakable sense that Mary herself wept at this evil, and the dread that Notre Dame is being weighed in the balance by God, and found wanting.

But my fear goes deeper. I fear for “pro-life Catholics” who condemn our actions; I fear for lukewarm clergy who look askance at our measures; I fear for “Catholic press” that lacks the courage or integrity to even cover our activities, is embarrassed by our tactics, ashamed at our boldness, and seduced to silence by the fear of men.

Yes: we will stand trial for “trespass;” but the arrogant and the fearful in the Church Militant that “trespass against us” by denigrating what it means to be militant are on trial as well.

A dreadful reckoning is coming. The blood of the innocent cries from the ground to God for justice. We will all be judged for our part in allowing this slaughter to continue. We will be held accountable for what we have done, and what we have failed to do; for every idle word, and every silent denial of Christ.

The Obama/Notre Dame harlotry is the “consummation” of Catholic America’s godless marriage to moral relativism, lukewarmness, and unholy pacifism.

***

I leave with the words of three American heroes to rebuke the cowardly, vindicate our actions, and warn of the judgment to come. The first deals with ending segregation; the others to ending slavery. Judge for yourself how they apply.

I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen’s Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to “order” than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: “I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action”; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man’s freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a “more convenient season.” Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will.

Martin Luther King Jr.

And next:

I am aware that many object to the severity of my language; but is there not cause for severity? I will be as harsh as truth, and as uncompromising as justice. On this subject, I do not wish to think, or to speak, or write, with moderation. No! no! Tell a man whose house is on fire to give a moderate alarm; tell him to moderately rescue his wife from the hands of the ravisher; tell the mother to gradually extricate her babe from the fire into which it has fallen; — but urge me not to use moderation in a cause like the present. I am in earnest — I will not equivocate — I will not excuse — I will not retreat a single inch — AND I WILL BE HEARD. The apathy of the people is enough to make every statue leap from its pedestal, and to hasten the resurrection of the dead.

It is pretended, that I am retarding the cause of emancipation by the coarseness of my invective and the precipitancy of my measures. The charge is not true. On this question of my influence, — humble as it is,– is felt at this moment to a considerable extent, and shall be felt in coming years — not perniciously, but beneficially — not as a curse, but as a blessing; and posterity will bear testimony that I was right. I desire to thank God, that he enables me to disregard “the fear of man which bringeth a snare,” and to speak his truth in its simplicity and power.

William Lloyd Garrison

And finally:

“It is not light that is needed, but fire; it is not the gentle shower, but thunder. We need the storm, the whirlwind, and the earthquake. The feeling of the nation must be quickened; the conscience of the nation must be roused; the propriety of the nation must be startled; the hypocrisy of the nation must be exposed; and its crimes against God and man must be proclaimed and denounced…There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices, more shocking and bloody, than are the people of the United States, at this very hour.”

Frederick Douglas

The reader can easily discern how the words of these men apply today. If we are going to end the slaughter of the innocent in America, we must adopt the fierceness and clarity of their rhetoric, actions, and images: we must follow their examples. If we do not, we will lose the battle to end child-killing, and perish as a nation.
