CHARLOTTE, April 2, 2012 /Christian Newswire
/ — In an effort to silence the First Amendment Rights of Christians carrying the message of life to three abortion mills in the city of Charlotte, the “Homeland Security” unit of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department has united with the abortion industry to get the job done.
Rev. Flip Benham, the National Director of Operation Save America
, will appear at the Charlotte School of Law in Charlotte to appeal a “guilty” verdict of “stalking.” The charge of “stalking” is simply the latest of many blatant attempts by the abortion industry and the city of Charlotte to remove from the streets gentle Christians who offer moms a real choice at abortion mills. There have been lawsuits, injunctions, temporary restraining orders, and every other imaginable strategy, to silence the Gospel of Christ.
This new North Carolina “stalking” statute is so egregious because it can be used by virtually anyone to silence the First Amendment rights of another by simply saying that he or she “feels” threatened. How dangerous are Christians living out their faith in the streets of their city anyway? We are moms and dads, grandmas and grandpas, little boys and girls, standing in the gap on behalf of preborn children. We are families living out the Gospel of Christ in the streets of our city. Now, with the help of the Department of Homeland Security, we are considered “stalkers.” God help us!
Why? Perhaps it is because of the fact that, since October 28, 2009, there have been 1,340 baby boys and girls saved from abortion and alive today because of the faithful witness of Christians at abortion mills. These children represent a lot of lost revenue to the abortion industry here. So now we have the unholy alliance of the “Domestic Terrorism” Department of the CMPD and the abortion industry working hand in glove to chill First Amendment activities of Christians by labeling the Christian witness as “stalking.”
