As World Celebrates Easter, Persecution of Christians in the United States

Ted Cruz

“Because elected Dems are pro-abortion, they are abusing their power — in a one-sided way — to silence pregnancy counselors!”

In case you missed it, last Saturday in Charlotte, North Carolina, the Charlotte police arrested Pro-Life pregnancy counselors who were lawfully assembled and socially distant compliant outside of an abortion clinic that was deemed a necessary service by the governor and the mayor.

One of the men arrested was David Benham, of the Benham Brothers who operates a legal charity in Charlote, Cities4Life™ which seeks to bring the light of the Gospel to abortion centers – the darkest places in the city of Charlotte.

Here is video of Mr. Benham being arrested last Saturday, April 4:

David Benham Unlawfully Arrested

Saturday morning David Benham was unlawfully arrested. Many have labeled him a fake Christian and claimed that he was endangering lives by being out today. This couldn't be further from the truth. David practiced social distancing and exercised every necessary precaution in light of COVID-19. Thank you for all the prayer and support so far. See the whole story in this video.

Senator Ted Cruz (R, TX) quickly became involved in this clear attack on the unborn let alone the 1st amendment, and now for Patriots who seek to defend the unborn through legal methods, even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, arrests were made.

Cruz’s transcribed tweets from his political Twitter account from Saturday:

“WATCH : This is an unconstitutional arrest.

“David Benham exercising core First Amendment rights. PEACEFULLY. In a way fully consistent w/ public safety.

“Because elected Dems are pro-abortion, they are abusing their power—in a one-sided way—to silence pregnancy counselors.

“Take 2 minutes to WATCH the full video [above].

“Have you ever seen an arrest like this?

“Peaceful. Respectful. Thanking the police officers.

“Elected Dems are abusing their power for political agenda & face civil liability under 42 USC 1983:

‘Every person who, under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State…subjects, or causes to be subjected, any citizen to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress….”

Then Monday morning, the Charlotte Observer published the editorial titled “Ted Cruz isn’t just wrong about an NC abortion protest and COVID-19 rules. He’s shameless”

To which Cruz responded to the Observer editorial Monday night, via Twitter, transcribed below:

“Charlotte newspaper editorial demonstrates dishonesty of today’s media.

“They say it’s just neutral ‘public health’ concerns that allow Dems to arrest the Benham Brothers⁩ for peacefully speaking for life.

“The newspaper says that’s ‘not essential’

“BUT they ignore that NC Dem Gov has wrongly deemed elective abortion ‘essential,’ allowing abortion doctors & staff to gather in larger groups.

“IF providing abortions is essential, then peacefully giving pregnant women counseling on alternatives to abortion is ALSO ‘essential.'”

Finally, later this Holy Week, author and radio show host Eric Metaxas interviewed David Benham for nearly 20 minutes. Please watch the full video below:

As Holy Week concludes today with Holy Thursday, tomorrow’s Good Friday and Easter Sunday, for the cause of life and the unborn, there is persecution against men and women, like David Benham, taking place right here in the United States.

The local & Illinois Pro-Life community, this weekend, is asked to say a prayer of support for the Benham Brothers, and what may take place with Senator Cruz’s upcoming petition movement alluded to in the Metaxas interview.


As World Celebrates Easter, Persecution of Christians in the United States — 11 Comments

  1. Oh those poor poor Christians huddled together secretly observing their hokiday.

    All they want is for every person to follow their rules and deity at all time.

    Why can’t they catch a break?

  2. The charlatanry-meter broken again by compassionate conservative, family-values, King James Bible, God-fearing, gun-clinging, immigrant-haters Christians crying for being fiercely persecuted in our great United States. And they know how to deflect and change the subject when things are not looking good for their bankrupt ideology. In the meantime, when asked about those 16,700 lives lost to Covid-19 so far due to the irresponsibility of our six-times-bankrupt, sexual-assaulter-in-chief, these same pro-life charlatans will tell you: “no biggie.” Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, hug a blogger, tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meeeeeeoooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwww…

  3. Like I said, when everything is going down the tube, republicans bring up abortion and gun rights…

  4. The party of BABY MURDERERS is the DEMOCRAT party.

    Evil to the core of their very being.

  5. Ted Cruz… how brave!!!! Maybe if Ted Cruz stood up for his wife and father like he stood up for these people in North Carolina I’d be able to watch this and not laugh at him.

  6. Lopez and so many so called Pro-Birth would have faired well in the USSR with their ability to buy into propaganda. Democrats are pro-choice not pro-abortion.

    Many Democrats would never have an abortion but they don’t believe Government should interfere in a women’s ability to make decisions.

  7. “persecution of Christians” — sigh.

    Shutting down a protest of an abortion clinic is not the persecution of Christians.

    That’s silly, and minimizes actual and real persecution happening around the world.

    Criticize the decision all you want.

    But it is not a religious persecution matter.

  8. Democrats support, condone and promote the “Destructive Right” of any pregnant woman to kill the fetus, the life in her womb. This is their mislabeled “Pro-Choice” mantra which honestly should be called “Pro-Death” because it allows death.

    Should Democrat politicians state that their mothers would have been correct in aborting them if they so CHOSE?

  9. “Should Democrat politicians state that their mothers would have been correct in aborting them if they so CHOSE?” My Political Science and Sociology professor moving us to tears again with his outstanding and amazing, stupid, right-wing, silly gotcha questions. If the answer is yes, who cares? If the answer is no, who cares? Using my right-wing friends’ favorite deflection trick, I say: the real question is why pro-life charlatans turn their attention to abortion instead of mourning and roaring in outrage the deaths of 18,000 Americans caused by the incompetence and ineptitude of our six-times-bankrupt, sexual-assaulter-in-chief? Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, hug a blogger, tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meeeeeeoooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwww…
