D.C. cops ban pro-life messages
WorldNetDaily ^ | 1/16/09 | Chelsea Schilling

The Washington, D.C., Metropolitan Police Department has forbidden a pro-life gathering and chalk display during Inauguration Week – and now the group is fighting back with a lawsuit against the District of Columbia.

Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, director of the Christian Defense Coalition, said the department is banning the event because of its message.

"For over 16 years, law enforcement officials have given permission to the Christian Defense Coalition to use public 'sidewalk chalking' as a part of their demonstrations and vigils in the nation's capitol. The City of Washington, D.C., has also allowed numerous public 'chalk art displays' throughout the city," he said in a statement. "It is therefore most troubling that for the first time the Washington, D.C., Metropolitan Police Department is banning this practice when it involves a pro-life display in front of the White House."

Thursday, Jan. 22, marks the 36th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Since 1974, pro-life activists have gathered in Washington, D.C., each year to protest the decision and call attention to millions of lives lost.

“We will see more and more of this under Obama.”

Yes, sadly we probably will, especially since he’s talked about creating a “national police force,” which will undoubtedly be used to crush all dissent.

What were people thinking when they voted for this guy??? Oh, I know! About THEMSELVES!!!!

“I hope this was not the kind of change President Obama was talking about.”

Of course this was the change he was talking about. Do people really not get this?

Exactly! People somehow want to believe that “change” is always for the better.

Yep. Times are a changin’ very quickly. Only pro-o messages will be authorized. By the way, who did he appoint as Minister of Propaganda?

We will have to watch carefully how the Obama administration deals with the March for Life on Thursday,January 22nd.The Clintons treated the peaceful pro-life marchers as terrorists.We are certainly going to miss President Bush very quickly.

The first taste of the persecution from the anti-Christ Obama. Perhaps he will prove to be The Anti-Christ.

People somehow want to believe that “change” is always for the better.

No doubt the German people believed this in the early 1930s. Probably the Russians in 1917. Look what "change" got them.

But, you know, at least Hitler made the trains run on time, and Lenin had the Romanovs killed. That was "change" everyone could believe in, too (except the millions who died at the hands of "change").

Where are they restricting the presence and message? How is it at all legal? Again infringing on constitutional rights!

Father God, come against those who persecute your children who are standing up for LIFE against those who purport abortion. Protect them. Give them a loud voice with your message that none can escape, and cause it to be heard in a fashion that cannot be stopped. In Jesus Name AmEN.
