Subject: OSA Arrests
was in your beautiful city last week as part of Operation Save America's
efforts to keep our once beautiful nation from destroying itself.
I was not at the Federal Courthouse when Rev. Benham and Pastor
Warren were arrested because I was at the abortion mill on Latrobe
St. singing Silent Night and other hymns and trying to convince
parents and grandparents not to kill their children and grandchildren.
I was not a witness to the arrests I don't know exactly what happened
but from what I've heard by word-of-mouth and read on OSA's website
I think your police department over-reacted. Fire laws are meant
to govern trash-burning and careless use of fire. It does not sound
to me like Rev. Benham was careless in the least and went to great
pains to make sure the fire he lit would not endanger anyone or
have a great tradition of free speech in America, guaranteed by
our Constitution. The Supreme Court has even upheld the right of
protestors to burn the American flag in public. I don't know if
anyone has ever burned an American flag in Charlotte or how your
local laws differ from those in other cities, but Rev. Benham's
actions were clearly an act of symbolism, designed to make a crucial
point related to the message that OSA has been bringing to your
city all week, and posed no danger to life or property in any way,
shape, or form.
fact, Rev. Benham's actions could very conceivably result in greater
protection for life, liberty, and the pursuit of true happiness
in our nation. The Bible is full of warnings about what happens
to nations who forget God, turn away from Him, and despise His commandments,
shedding innocent blood and committing other despicable acts. The
Old Testament prophets tell us that God will bring fire on our cities
and a sword on our land for our disobedience (Isaiah 1 and many
job as police officers is to stop murders in progress. We are killing
more than 4000 innocent children every day in the abortion mills
of this nation and God is going to hold us accountable. "Be
not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that
shall he also reap." (Gal. 6:7) May the Lord of Heaven lead
your police officers and citizens to repentance and may you take
your place on the front lines in the battle for the lives of our
children and the souls of mankind.
organized crime; repeal Roe v. Wade!
