NAACP Protest

Protesters will stage actions at the NAACP’s Washington bureau, on April 3, and at the civil rights organization’s national headquarters, in Baltimore, the next day, said Rev. Edward Pinkney, the former head of the NAACP in Benton Harbor, Michigan. “We have given the NAACP a free pass, just like we gave Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson – because they’re Black.” Pinkney wants the NAACP’s non-profit status revoked for acting as an annex of the Democratic Party.

April 3, 2013, 10am – NAACP Branch Office, 1156 15th St. NW, Washington DC 20001
April 4, 2013, 10am – NAACP National Headquarters, 4805 Mt Hope Dr., Baltimore, MD

After First Amendment Victory, Priests for Life Youth Leader to Return to Ohio College

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

Bryan Kemper in Sidney

Priests for Life Youth Outreach Director Bryan Kemper, who was banned from holding a pro-life sign during a peaceful protest rally at Sinclair Community College last year, will return to the Dayton, Ohio school tomorrow, after the college agreed to uphold its students’ First Amendment rights.

In June 2012, during a Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally – one of more than 100 simultaneous rallies that Priests for Life helped organize across the country – Kemper was among those who were told by Dayton police that they could not hold up signs describing their opposition to government-mandated free contraception.

The Thomas More Society filed a federal lawsuit against the college on behalf of Kemper and two students. As a result of the suit, the college agreed in January to revise its campus access policy, which now stipulates that “any group may use, without prior notification, any publicly accessible outdoor area” (with some exceptions) for the purposes of speaking, non-verbal expressive conduct, the distribution of literature, displaying signage, and circulating petitions.”

Go to www.priestsforlife.org/deddens-v-warren.pdf to read the full settlement agreement.

Tomorrow, at the invitation of the school’s Traditional Values Club, Kemper will address students in the school library, from 1:30 to 5 p.m.

“This case has implications for the whole country, especially those of us who express opinions that aren’t politically correct in our current climate,” said Kemper, the founder of Stand True Prolife Outreach. “But it was also important to me, personally, because my son Jaemison, who was 7 at the time, was with me, and I wanted him to see that we can fight against injustice, and we can win.”

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, commented: “Free speech is protected precisely because it can make people so angry that they will try to shut up the speaker. This case shows that the protection still works, and we need to use it!”

King, Pavone, Gardner appalled by rising death counts on NAACP, CBC watch

Friday, February 8th, 2013

SPACERLeRoy CarhartAnother woman and baby dead by legal abortion and African American and other religious prolife leaders are outraged as the NAACP, The Congressional Black Caucus, many in the Christian and political community and others remain silent on the Reproductive Genocide issue.

“The death count keeps rising. Why aren’t our highly visible “leaders” protesting?” asks Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life and post-abortive spokeswoman for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign.

“It has happened again. Another mother has been killed by so-called ‘safe and legal’ abortion,” said Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life. “It happens constantly, in fact, but the abortion industry usually succeeds in covering it up. And even when they don’t, the rest of us succeed in keeping it relatively quiet. Late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart began an abortion procedure a few days ago on a woman who was about 33 weeks pregnant. These abortions are legal, and he performs them at his killing center in Germantown, MD. Yesterday, she developed complications. The abortionist could not be reached. She was taken to the emergency room by private vehicle, and she died,” Pavone explained.

“Women of all ages, shapes, sizes and ethnicities are dying by abortion,” added King who cited the recent death by abortion of Tonya Reaves in Chicago. “My great-great grandfather , Dr. Adam Daniel Williams, a pastor original NAACP founder would be appalled to know that mothers and children are being denied liberty and life at the hands of the abortion/contraceptives industry. We must RECALL ABORTION now.”

Day Gardner, founder of the National Black Pro-Life Union laments, “This recent death adds to the chilling reports of reproductive genocide in America. why is the NAACP silent… again? As a child, I thought the NAACP to be a super hero organization; an organization that would fight racism down to its very core — and like a super hero — it would always stand for truth and justice…fighting boldly for civil rights and freedom for all black people.”

“Apparently, there was some fine print in there that said — except for those children who are too small to defend themselves — we will allow their civil rights to be violated,” said Gardner.

“What bothers me most is the NAACP is very quick to recognize racism everywhere else except the one place that truly affects all of us. Black women and their unborn children are targeted by the abortion industry while the NAACP looks the other way,” Gardner concluded.

It would seem that the National Black Prolife Coalition is striking a serious nerve and a serious chord in their efforts to expose the blatant Reproductive Genocide Movement in America. When Ryan Bomberger posted an add calling out the National Association for the Abortion of Colored People on his websites, the NAACP squealed real loud, even going to the point of calling their attorneys to apply scare tactics to charge Ryan to back down. The NAACP was also shocked by the aggressive prayer protest hosted by Dr. Johnny Hunter, Pastor Stephen Broden, Rev. Walter Hoye, and other Black leaders of the National Black Prolife Coalition who appeared with local leaders at the February 1, 2013 NAACP Image Awards to demand that the NAACP break ties with the abortion and contraceptives industry, headed up by Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider. The leaders also demanded that the NAACP break ties with the homosexual marriage campaign and return to those values that are life affirming for colored people.

“There really is a National Alliance, Campaign or Association for the Abortion of Colored People. This force to be reckoned with includes Planned Parenthood, the NAACP, The Congressional Black Caucus, the abortion supporting political powers that be, and unfortunately the Christian pastors of America who for the most part are watching this debacle play out from the sidelines,” said Alveda King.

“Since 1973, over 55 million babies have been legally aborted – which means slaughtered or killed – in America. Black babies make up nearly one third of the deaths, which is Reproductive Genocide in that the living African American population in America is estimated to be around 13%. Add to these startling figures the deaths and serious injuries of women who are victims of the supposedly “safe, legal and rare” abortions and harmful, invasive contraceptives that the Alliance for the Abortion of Colored People want to keep ramming down our throats while they keep laughing at us all the way to the bank, filling their coffers at the expense of the blood shed by our babies and our women.

“Enough is enough already! Too many babies are dead; too many women are hurt, suffering or dead by acts of abortion. If people really want to advance colored people, they will help the least of these rediscover the lost values that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke of during his lifetime. They will help colored people and all people discover purpose in life. They will help people find jobs, and finish their education. They will recall abortion. They will own up to the duplicities that they attempt to cover up with deceptive ad campaigns that promise to help us when all the time they keep killing us.

“Pray that the voices against this injustice will increase, will grow stronger, and that America will wake up before it is too late,” King concluded.

OPEN LETTER TO PASTORS AND COMMUNITY LEADERS

Monday, January 28th, 2013

SPACER

Challenge the NAACP and other leaders who are betraying the Black Community

CALL FOR A NATIONAL YEAR OF REPENTANCE, REMEMBERING, RECALLING, RETURNING, REVIVAL, RESTORING AND REFORMING!

“IF MY PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME (GOD) WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND PRAY AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS AND SEEK MY FACE, THEN WILL I HEAR FROM HEAVEN AND FORGIVE THEIR SINS AND HEAL THEIR LAND.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

Calling all churches and community activists to protest the leadership of the National NAACP and other community leaders including the CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCUS, THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS, and THE ADMINISTRATION for failure to represent the health and wellbeing of the Black community.

This year people of God in churches and community groups will be praying and fasting regarding sin based issues ranging from abortion, traditional marriage, destruction of the black family and the extraordinarily high incarceration rate of black men.

Too many are silent in the face of betrayal and loss. Some are IN BED WITH big money organizations and corporations whose aim is to NEGATIVELY impact the physical and spiritual health of Black America, including the PUSHING of alcohol, cigarettes, dangerous pharmaceuticals, abortion, etc. They have FAILED to address high unemployment in Black America, the high rate of incarceration of Black males, the high school dropouts, the extraordinarily high number and rate of abortions in the Black community, and the lack of marriage among mothers and fathers.

People in high seats of authority know the truth and are refusing to act on it.  They are supporting:

 

  • The racist agenda of Planned Parenthood
  • The reproductive genocide of over 20 million Black children
  • The violation of the civil rights of children in the womb
  • The dismantling of Holy Matrimony
  • The promotion of homosexual  marriage
  • They know that Black Women are dying from abortions and

Harmful DEPO (Depo- Provera) shots and are doing NOTHING ABOUT IT.

THEY ARE PROMOTING A FALSE GOSPEL WHICH IS DEADLY TO THE BLACK COMMUNITY AND TO OUR NATION AS A WHOLE. LET US RETURN TO BEING “ONE NATION UNDER GOD, BROTHERS AND SISTERS UNITED IN THE HUMAN RACE, TO ADVANCE THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST, AND TO EMBARCE HUMANITY IN AGAPE LOVE, REPENTANCE, FORGIVENESS AND HUMILITY.

Keeping the message of sanctity of life in the forefront

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

While abortion wasn’t mentioned in the presidential debate last week, a TV ad featuring abortion survivor Melissa Ohden ran on Denver’s NBC affiliate during the presidential debate. The ad, produced by the Susan B. Anthony List’s Women Speak Out political action committee, criticizes President Obama for opposing an Illinois bill that would have protected babies born alive after an abortion.

Catching Up with Fr. Frank Pavone On the Election and Voter Guides

Friday, October 5th, 2012

By Deacon Keith Fourmier

Catholic Online

When the history of the great human rights movement of our age is written there will be several women, men, associations, movements and organizations holding a deserved place of honor. Right at the top of that list will be Fr. Frank Pavone and Priests for Life.

WASHINGTON, DC (Catholic Online) – The great human rights movement of our age is the struggle to restore to the Civil and positive law of this Nation – and the rest of the nations – the legal recognition of the fundamental Human Right to Life.

Without recognizing this first Right, the Right to life, there can be no recognition of any other derivative rights. In fact, the entire infrastructure of human rights is placed at risk. All true Human Rights are goods of human persons. When there is no human person there can be no rights endowed upon them or exercised by them. All the “rights talk” in the world will not change that.

Every procured abortion is intrinsically immoral because it takes an innocent human life. It is always and everywhere wrong to take innocent human life. Medical science confirms what our conscience has always known; the child in the womb is one of us, our neighbor.

No positive law can change that fact. When they seek to do so they are unjust laws which are not law at all. The great civil rights movements of the past two centuries have depended upon the recognition of an objective truth; every human being, at at every age and stage, has human dignity and a right to life.

Civil Rights are those human rights which are first recognized – and then properly protected by – civil government. The American founders stood in the best trajectory of Western civilization in their insistence that human rights are not given or bestowed by government but by the God in whose Image we have all been created.

Truly just governments are instituted precisely to secure these human rights. The first among them is the Right to Life. The Right to Life is revealed by the Natural Law which can be known by all men and women through the exercise of reason.

There is no more urgent work in the contemporary culture than the work of the movement called “Pro-Life”. That is precisely because the Right to Life movement is the foundational human and thus civil rights movement.

The egregious sin of the United States of America continues. We fail to hear the cry of our youngest neighbors in the first home of the whole human race, their mothers womb. When we allow their killing for any reason and by any means – and then actually call it a “right” – we profane the very word. We also place our future survival as a Nation at risk.

When we allow their innocent blood to be shed and then protect the evil act with the Police Power of the State we betray our claim to being a civilized people. When we deny them the Freedom to be born we undermine the very understanding of ordered liberty upon which our Nation was founded.

Those engaged in the Pro-Life movement assert with the American founders that there are truths that are self evident – such as our equality before God – and rights which are inalienable – such as the Right to Life.

When we are victorious in this monumental struggle – and we will be victorious – there will be many heroes whose sacrifice and courage will be recounted in our history books. They will be celebrated by our children and grandchildren as Champions of Life who overcame the current culture of death, replacing it with a new Culture of life.

When recognition of the fundamental Human Right to life is restored to the Civil and Positive law, these heroes will be remembered, honored and imitated. Right at the top of that list will be a Catholic Priest named Fr. Frank Pavone. He may be of small physical stature, like David of the Old Testament story, but he has a heart which is huge and the courage of a spiritual warrior.

Fr Frank Pavone has wielded his small smooth stones and sling mightily in the battle against the Goliath of the contemporary Culture of Death and that giant staggers as a result. He is one of my heroes and has been for decades. I also have the privilege of calling Fr Frank my friend. We have walked and worked together for several decades.

I recently spoke with Fr Frank about his efforts to ensure what I believe is the proper outcome of the upcoming elections in the United States. By proper outcome I mean electing men and women who recognize the fundamental human right to life and will do everything they can to restore that Right to our civil law.

I asked Fr Frank a few questions. His answers underscored why he is so effective in his work at the helm of the organization he founded, Priests for Life. The first question I asked was “Fr. Frank, can you please help our readers and viewers put in perspective the importance of the upcoming elections”.

His answer, “We need to elect public servants who can tell the difference between serving the public and killing the public. If a politician can’t respect the life of a little baby, how is he supposed to respect yours? Each of us has one vote, but we can each influence hundreds of other votes.”

Next, I asked him about the Catholics and other Christians who write to me claiming they were not pleased with either major Party Presidential candidate. Some tell me they are considering either not voting – or voting for an alternative candidate who is incapable of winning.

“Father”, I inquired, “what do you say to those who have decided that neither of the two major candidates are fully Pro-Life and so have decided to not vote or vote for a third party candidate who cannot win. They write to me and tell me in person that they do not want to vote for “the lesser of two evils””.

Fr Frank responded bluntly, “Choosing the better of two imperfect candidates is not choosing the lesser of two evils. We can never choose evil. But we can choose to limit evil, and that is a good.” To which I heartily responded, “Amen”. I hope all who have told me this – in writing or in person – not only read his astute and accurate response but act accordingly!

I next asked how he deals with the opponents of our Pro-Life work who accuse Catholics of trying to impose our beliefs on the American people. I knew how I would answer the question, I have written extensively about it.

“Fr Frank”, I asked, “how do you deal with those who accuse you as a Catholic Priest and human rights activist of trying to impose Catholic values on America?” His answer was again brief, and right to the point. “I am not calling for a Vatican takeover of America; I’m calling for an American takeover of America!”

I have worked with Fr Frank over the years in many Pro-Life efforts. One of the efforts is “Deacons in the Service of Life” an outreach of Priests for Life. I know that during every election cycle, as we draw close to the time to cast our ballots, Voter Guides begin to be circulated.

As a constitutional lawyer I know the requirements for such guides to be acceptable for Churches and other non-profit organizations under Section 501 c3 of the Internal Revenue Code. Yet, as a Deacon, I have also experienced the reticence on the part of many Catholic Clergy to allow such guides to be distributed, even when they are in compliance with the law.

Priests for Life just released a Non-Partisan Voter Guide for the 2012 US Presidential election which is completely compliant with the law. It is entitled “Where Do the Candidates Stand on key Issues?” So, I asked Fr Frank two final questions concerning Voter guides.

“Fr Frank, many Catholic clergy are concerned about offering Voter Guides. Can you help us to understand if there is a proper use for them? Are they an improper political activity for a parish?” His response was accurate and simple.

“For the Church to inform her people, in a non-partisan way, of the positions of the candidates is not a political activity – it is a pastoral activity. In fact, it is one of the spiritual works of mercy: instructing those who do not know. It is an equipping of the People of God to go into the world and make a change, consistent with the Great Commission and the New Evangelization.”

“We will hear in the coming weeks, as we do in every election cycle, of numerous refusals by Churches and dioceses to permit the distribution of voter guides. When someone tells me, ‘We can’t distribute yours,’ I challenge them, ‘Well then where is yours?’ But unfortunately, the alternative ends up being none at all.”

All monsters are not in the movies…

Wednesday, August 15th, 2012

Friends, we are dealing with a real three headed monster: Abortion and Unnatural Contraceptives, Racism and Homosexuality. All three fly in the face of God, pretty much saying: “No God, we won’t be fruitful and multiply. We will not procreate your beloved human family. We will kill our babies, make sure we don’t get pregnant in the first place, refuse to marry anyone who doesn’t have our skin color and call it racial purity, and finally, we will have same-sex-sex, which sure as you know what won’t cause anyone to get pregnant.” Oh, wow!

What’s really sad is that when we protect these positions with “misplaced compassion,” and try to call these moral wrongs civil rights, we hurt society and humanity. Love, real love never fails. We must not judge one another, we must simply tell the truth and slay the beast. The Sword of the Spirit is a very effective weapon; the Blood of Jesus is a super source; and the real super hero is the Holy Spirit. And remember, our all powerful FATHER GOD is LOVE and LOVE never fails.
