‘the greatest enemy of the state’

Pro-life pastor prepares for sentencing- OneNewsNow

Watler HoyeAn Oakland, California, pastor could face jail time for expressing his pro-life views.

Pastor Walter Hoye ran into trouble with an abortion clinic while doing an informational picket. Dennis Howard, leader of The Movement for a Better America, believes Hoye is innocent.
“His approach was simply to carry a sign that said ‘Jesus Loves You. Can We Help?’ and offering those who wanted it some information about alternatives to abortion,” Howard explains.
A complaint was filed and Hoye was found guilty in spite of proof to the contrary. “There was a video taken of him doing this, and it shows that he was not harassing anybody,” Howard points out. “In fact, he was being harassed by escorts from the abortion clinic.”

Pastor Hoye faces up to two years in jail and a $4,000 fine. Howard is calling Christians into action. “We feel that pro-life organizations around the country ought to take up this man’s cause and pray and fast between now and February 19,” he concludes.
That is when Hoye is due to be sentenced.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” Joseph Goebbels

Joseph Goebbels was a master propagandist of the Nazi regime and dictator of its cultural life for twelve years, Joseph Goebbels was born into a strict Catholic, working-class family from Rheydt, in the Rhineland, on 29 October 1897. He was educated at a Roman Catholic school and went on to study history and literature at the University of Heidelberg under Professor Friedrich Gundolf, a Jewish literary historian renowned as a Goethe scholar and a close disciple of the poet Stefan George.

Following the Fuhrer’s suicide, Goebbels disregarded Hitler’s political testament, which had appointed him as Reich Chancellor, and decided to follow suit. He had his six children poisoned with a lethal injection by an SS (Schutzstaffel) doctor and then himself and his wife Magda shot by an SS orderly on May 1, 1945. With characteristic pathos and egomania he declared not long before his death: “We shall go down in history as the greatest statesmen of all time, or as the greatest criminals.”  JewishVirtualLibrary

Are these the propagandist stones of Nazi Germany we see being strewn across the streets of America? Goebbels was correct that the ‘greatest enemy of the State is truth’.

 

“if ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”.

Please keep Pastor Walter Hoye in your prayers as he stands for life, in the face of the opposition from the State.

  1. Good morning. I fear that very few saints understand the subtle shift toward tyranny that’s ongoing in this land. They seem so caught up in the geo-political storylines of the day as presented by CNN, caught up with maintaining their earthly kingdom in the midst of economic turmoil, and busying themselves with a plethura of distractions, that they simply cannot grasp the lateness of the hour.

    May we prayerfully consider the meaning of Revelation 12:11 as events unfold before us and draw ever closer to Jesus.

    Have a blessed day in Jesus.

  2. Greetings timbob and thanks for reading ‘the greatest enemy of the state’. Yes we are living in a day in which truth is suppressed at every turn. It is true that many would rather propagate a lie instead of believing the truth. To move it to a new level there is now a concerted effort of supplanting truth with lies.

    I liken it to the days of Isaiah.. things that are right are considered wrong. Light is dark, dark is light, bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter. We truly are living in a day of strong delusion and the lie promoted by the state.

    When a people get their convictions from the likes of CNN, CNBC, etc… instead of the word of God, it makes the delusion that much more effective. A spirit void of an understanding of God’s word leaves them focused on “their earthly kingdom”, and the lust of the flesh.

    Considering Revelation 12:11
    May God give us the same conviction that we see in the Hebrew children in the day of Daniel…. may we purpose in our heart to do nothing less than the word of God, and that with little or no thought.

    Peace timbob

  4. Update on Pastor Walter Hoye- source http://www.thevoicemagazine.com/headline-news/464-pro-life-pastor-walter-hoye-sentenced-to-jail-for-violating-city-law.html

    _____________________________________________________________________

    Pro-life Pastor Walter Hoye was found guilty of violating “The Bubble Law,” a city law that provides an 8-foot buffer zone between pro-life protesters and women entering the abortion clinics. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail and ordered to stay 100 yards away from the clinic where he was arrested for the next three years.

    According to the Oakland Tribune, Pastor Walter Hoye, is the first person charged and found guilty of the city’s two-year-old law and must also pay $1,130 in fines and remain on probation for three years after either serving his 30 days in county jail or entering an alternative program run by the sheriff’s department.

    Pastor Hoye’s case, has garnered national attention from Christians and pro-life supporters, many of whom traveled from as far as Dallas in support of the beloved pastor, who they said was having his First Amendment rights taken away. Some believe that he was especially targetted by the abortion clinics.

    As reported by the Tribune, the courtroom’s atmosphere was charged and filled with both pro-choice and pro-life activists. Supporters of both groups also crammed the hallways of the courthouse before the hearing and shouted at each other as they jockeyed for a seat.

    The ruling was made by Alameda Superior Court Judge Stuart Hing.

    The tensions flared after the hearing. One pro-lifer wrestled with sheriff’s deputies as he shouted at the judge, condemning him for placing Hoye in jail, while others sang “We Shall Overcome.” Many Christians were shocked at the news of Pastor Walter Hoye’s arrest and believed he was convicted wrongly.

    “It is my prayer that God’s name be glorified and the life of His Son Jesus Christ be revealed in me,” said Hoye while he awaited his sentence.

    “It’s not an issue of pro-life or pro-choice, it’s about the ability of a man to stand up and speak his truth,” said Dion Evans, shortly before he was restrained by sheriff’s deputies as he shouted at the judge.

    Judge Hing said he received stacks of letters in support of Hoye. Perhaps they helped to reduce the sentence. Pastor Hoye was facing up to two years in jail and $4000 in fines.

    Alameda County Deputy District Attorney Robert Graff, who tried the case, argued that Hoye was not an innocent man standing on a sidewalk with a sign but someone who violated a city law.

    “To suggest that he was merely holding a sign on the sidewalk does not speak to the totality of what is going on here,” Graff said. “This is a balancing of rights here. These people’s rights have to be balanced as well.”

    Hoye’s defense attorneys, paid for by the Life Legal Defense Foundation, argued, at times with tears in their eyes, that the law was unconstitutional and that a punishment of jail was cruel and unusual.

    Graff, who agreed Hoye should not be placed in jail, suggested the Judge place him on probation for 3 years with an order to stay 100 yards away from the abortion clinic. Graff said, “If Hoye did not agree to that, he should be sent to county jail for two years.”

    Hing sentenced Hoye to 30 days in jail with the option of entering a sheriff work-release program that allows him to do sheriff-sponsored community service in exchange for jail time.

    Hoye was warned with a threat that if he was found approaching women at the abortion clinic in the future, he would be in violation of his probation and could face additional time in jail.

    Meanwhile, Life Legal Defense Foundation is challenging the city’s law in federal court.

    For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to [give] an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ. For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.
