The Rev. Walter Hoye, who was convicted of violating Oakland’s ‘bubble law’ and served 18 days in prison, is particularly concerned about the high number of abortions among African American women.

Today we would like to feature two outstanding African-American clergymen who are courageously standing up for the rights of unborn children in America. We encourage visitors to our blog to take a few minutes to read the links we are providing on these two great inspirational men.

Reverend Walter Hoye, a Baptist minister, was recently imprisoned for peacefully praying and protesting in front of an abortion facility in Oakland California. His comments about the current situation in America are very insightful. Read these comments and others about his amazing 18 days in prison and his prison visit by the new Catholic Bishop of Oakland, Bishop Salvatore Cordileone.

frraphaelFather John Raphael, SSJ speaking at ND Response Rally

Father John Raphael, SSJ (a graduate of Notre Dame University, who is still active with the ND community) gave a powerful pro-life speech at the ND Response rally on May 17th, 2009, at Notre Dame University. This Josephite priest, is a great pro-life leader. He is the principal of St. Augustine High School in New Orleans. This high school was recently described by the New Orleans Times-Picayune as “a seedbed of black leadership in New Orleans”. We are big fans of the Josephite Order of priests who organize a large enthusiastic contingent for the January 22 March for Life in Washington every year. See below for links relating to Father John, the Josephite Order and St. Augustine H.S.  :

This is really great and inspirational. The reason that more African American Clergy don’t speak against abortion is because of the unholy alliance between the Black Church and the Democratic Party. They need to remember that they serve God not the liberal agenda!!!!
