there’s smoke, there’s usually a fire”...When you don’t clear
the underbrush in the forest…you’ll have a devastating fire.
There’s sin in the camp and the stench fills our nostrils.
3:1-5 “Woe to the city of oppressors, rebellious and defiled! She
obeys no one, she accepts no correction. She does not trust in the
Lord, she does not draw near to her God. Her officials are roaring
lions, her rulers are evening wolves, who leave nothing for the
morning. Her prophets are arrogant; they are treacherous men. Her
priests profane the sanctuary and do violence to the law. The Lord
within her is righteous; he does no wrong. Morning by morning he
dispenses his justice, and every new day he does not fail, yet the
unrighteous know no shame.”
December 9th- As we rolled up to the crime scene a
blanket of snow covered the dismal surroundings and our eyes focused
on the “
” church van from
E. St. Louis
, parked on the abortion mill lot. “Three women went inside,”
Nolan informed me. “Are you sure they didn’t go into the
hospital?” “No, they’re in the abortion mill,” he said.
prayed and tried pleading with the moms and dads going in. During a
break, I phoned the church where this van came from and left a message
for the pastor, informing him that their church van was being used in
commission of a crime and to return my call.
hours later, these holy women came walking out; the back-seat
passenger was carrying her brown bag to vomit in as the clinic workers
over medicate the mothers with pain and sleep medication and nausea
and vomiting is one of the many side effects. Most clients yell and
scream at us after they kill, they are feeling guilty and convicted.
These three women were extremely quiet and walked with their heads
That evening, the Pastor King from this church phoned and told
me he was as shocked as I was to hear that his church van was being
used and brought to the abortion clinic. He said that someone must of
loaned it out and would check into it and would get back to me. .
Tuesday, I went into the station to do my radio program. After the
program, it’s usual for me to show the staff the pictures from the
past week outside the clinic. In doing so, boy, did I open a can of
worms. Our sister station recognized the church van in question. As a
matter of fact, one lady still attends the church. She was outraged
that her church would be involved with such an abomination. She asked
for the pictures and made phone calls and told me she was meeting with
the pastor that evening. My station manager commented, “Boy Angela,
after those women get a hold of him he is going to wish you would of
showed up at his church with those signs.” There was talk of past
confrontations of adulteress behavior within the leadership of this
church. Some within the congregation left due to those reports. I was
informed that this pastor also had aired a radio program at our sister
station for awhile.
next day I received another call from the Pastor, informing me to his
knowledge his church van was borrowed by someone in the church and
that these two women had taken a young girl who felt forced into the
abortion. He would deal with them and he apologized. He also stated
that he does not promote abortion.
3:11-13 “On that day you will not be put to shame for all the wrongs
you have done to me, because I will remove from this city those who
rejoice in their pride. Never again will you be haughty on my holy
hill. But I will leave within you the meek and the humble, who trust
in the name of the Lord. The remnant of

their mouths. They will eat and lie down and no one will make them
