While Senate Democrats are trying to ram through Obama's first judicial nominee, David Hamilton,who is notorious for striking Jesus's name from public prayers in the Indiana legislature and later abolishing abortion waiting periods, a pro-life pastor sits in a jail cell for daring to hold a sign.
In Support of Dr. King and Pastor Hoye
The wrongful jailing of this peace-loving pastor continues to stoke the fires of the pro-life movement. Conservative African-American leaders are hopeful that Oakland's wrongful incarceration of Pastor Hoye will draw attention to the greater abuse of black women and babies by these so-called "family planning" clinics. On day 15 of his 30-day sentence, Hoye now sleeps on a top bunk in a large cell together with dozens of other inmates. On a juice-only fast, he is faithfully sharing the Gospel with fellow prisoners, some of whom have accepted Christ.
We're asking that you take a few moments to write Rev. Hoye a note of encouragement while he serves his time. You can reach him at Walter B. Hoye II, PFN# BGR852, Santa Rita Jail 5325 Broder Boulevard, Dublin, California 94568-3309.
