New York Pastor Calls for National Day of Mourning

Published

on

A pastor has called for a national strike on February 23 in protest of the New York 40-week abortion law.

The national protest is headed up by Pastor Jon Speed from New York, as he calls on the Christian community to take a stand against all the radical abortion bills recently proposed.

“The Day of Mourning is slated for this Saturday, Feb. 23. Organizers are encouraging Christian business owners to close their stores, and all Christians to wear black, refuse to shop and spend time in prayer and repentance for the national sin of abortion,” according to Life News.

This outspoken voice for the unborn is the same pastor who closed the doors of his bookstore following the passing of law, not wanting the state to collect any sales tax from his business.

Continuing his protest against the horrid bill, Speed is now leading a national protest to make the statement to lawmakers and the general public that all life is valuable. What he describes as “a day to repent and pray and seek God’s mercy on our nation for this terrible slaughter of innocent babies,” Speed hopes that others will join his campaign.

The national protest will also include a rally in New York. Rallying close to Governor Cuomo’s office, the pro-life event will start at 1 p.m. at the Empire State Plaza Convention Center. More information about the rally, protest, and how you can participate can be found on the “Day of Mourning” website.

SICK: American Icon Plymouth Rock Vandalized, Spray-Painted in Massachusetts

It’s likely the vandalism is an anti-American hate crime.

Published

on

An icon of American heritage and civilization, Plymouth Rock, was found vandalized and spray-painted upon Monday morning by criminals at its namesake in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Plymouth Rock symbolizes the first arrival of the pilgrims from England in North America in 1620 A.D. The vandalism was found just weeks before a ceremony intended to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the pilgrim’s arrival in Massachusetts.

The large boulder is marked with the characters ‘1620’ to symbolize the pilgrims’ arrival. The rock was the first sight of those who disembarked from the Mayflower in the New World.

It’s unclear what the red spray-paint on the rock is intended to convey, but there’s a strong possibility the vandalism is motivated by hatred towards the icon of American culture.

In addition to the rock, the spray-paint vandals also targeted a nearby statue intended to commemorate the first pilgrims to arrive in North America.

It’s also noteworthy that the vandalism was found on President’s Day, suggesting a further possibility of anti-American hatred as a motivation.

400th anniversary celebrations of the pilgrims’ arrival are scheduled for April, and to this day are a point of pride for many of their descendants who live in Massachusetts.

The director of a Plymouth cultural and tourism agency, Lea Filson, expressed her disappointment to see the icon of America so disrespected.

“Seeing this type of disrespect for the historic reminders of the Mayflower story is both sad and unsettling. The outpouring of concern and anger over the incident has been a positive ending to a thoughtless gesture.”

The town of Plymouth has already removed the vandalism from the rock, and local police are investigating to locate the culprits.
