Civil dissed-OBEDIENCE.

Meet Pastor Walter Hoye. His Civil Rights have been violated, as he was arrested and jailed for holding a sign that simply read, "Jesus loves you and your baby. Let us help you."

The basic, fundamental rights of Americans, especially Christian Americans, are under assault. God established America as a country destined to accomplish great things, by her people. But if the hands of those who are willing to do good works are bound by anti-religion legislators, there will be great risk to those people who are willing to serve their brothers and sisters in need. As I recall, very few politicians were in the flooded streets of New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina, helping those who had lost their way of life. How many church communities sent delegations to help the devastated? Sent supplies and resources, prayers and money to those who were destitute. Volunteers who did not have their photos plastered on the front of newspapers or on film for the television networks. Those who made the greatest contributions to and for society did them silently, with no recognition...only those who received their support and God, witnessed these acts. And so it is with most of us, in the measures we help others.

Please don't sit by and let these courts and laws dismantle our liberty...take a stand and fight for the injustices that are being piled upon our shoulders, laws that seek to bind and silence us.

Can you not feel the oppression that is in the air? Are you not worried about whether your children's children will be able to worship freely? Little by little, chip by chip, our freedom is being taken from us.

You may support Pastor Hoye at this, his incarceration address:

Think about it.

I am not a picketer. I have always thought that Christians had no right to picket abortion clinics IF they did not offer an alternative. It seems as though that was exactly what he was doing!

We just get to be more and more in the majority don't we? And we just allow it.

Like he said in the video, it's not necessarily related to the abortion issue. It's about fundamental rights...now, laws are being created to target specific areas of speech and thought. It's all so crazy!

Thank you for posting this, Pat, and letting us know what's going on. I've done a little research on Rev. Hoye, but haven't been able to find any evidence that he actually violated the "8 feet rule"; it's hard to see how holding a sign and asking a gentle question crosses such a line. What sickens me even more than his jailing are the hate-filled, hypocritical comments of "pro-choices" on news sites discussing this case, by people who'd hail as a hero someone who'd deface a church to express his dissatisfaction with its stand against abortion. Obviously, only those who subscribe to the politically correct and approved agenda are allowed to speak freely.
