Truth is Banned Off the Streets of Granite City

Galatians 4:16 “Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth?”

Granite City officials pass ordinance 13-1 banning graphic signs from public view

WWJD…Yes, Granite City , Jesus would show graphic signs! When words fail, God speaks to us in living parables (pictures).

          Truth has stumbled into the streets because Granite City refuses to recognize the blight on its city, the eyesore, so the truth has come to the streets through God’s remnant.

The truth of what is happening in Granite City is being banned and threatened with arrest in Granite City . Granite City houses and protects a notorious abortion mill referred to as the Hopeless abortion mill where over 400,000 babies have been slaughtered and numerous women butchered and victimized in the past thirty-two years of one little word “choice”. There seems to be a silent covenant between this city and the Hope(less) abortion mill, “You don’t bother me and we won’t bother you.”

No parental consent is needed and they specialize in late term abortions. Illinois is the only state in the Midwest where there are no restrictions on child killing. Once known for their booming steel mill industry where families came from all over the nation, is now known for its baby-dumping mill. And families are still coming from all over…to kill.

An incident at the annual Santa parade this past November generated the city fathers to ban the messengers rather than deal with the message. An injunction was denied by a federal judge this past week on this proposed ordinance. A reporter informed us they would be voting on the ordinance this evening. We were turned down when we requested to be placed on the agenda in order to address the city council before the vote. A small remnant accompanied by our attorney prayed before we went inside City Hall. We noticed a larger police presence than normal. Reporters introduced themselves and did some interviews with us. Mayor Ed Hagnauer called the meeting to order and introduced his personal priest Fr. Larry Brunett to lead in prayer. Most of the council and officials were Catholic. There was a spirit of religiosity and they played up to the spectators and the cameramen. The general feeling was city officials and inhabitants of this town are co-existing with evil, and that’s not a problem.

  The mayor began by stating he was hungry for change and Granite City was very “pro-active”. A homeless couple was called to the podium, it seems the mayor and city inspector evicted them from their dwelling around Thanksgiving with their three children all under the age of 16, because their home contained black-mold. The woman pleaded to the mayor, “You promised to help us find housing, now my family is split up, we’ve lost everything, our belongings. We didn’t have a Christmas, even our keepsakes have been lost because you threw us onto the streets.” 

The mayor looked over to the city attorney and then told this distraught woman to phone him next week and he’d see what he could do. There was some discussion on street repairs. I began reading through my Bible then I heard one of the aldermen announce, “We will now vote on the sign ordinance.” I looked up and they were taking a vote, the reporters and camera turned and focused on us, I sumize to see our reaction of the vote. I smiled and continued reading Matthew 10:17- 25 “Be on your guard against men; they will hand you over to the local councils and flog you in their synagouges. On my account you will be brought before governors and kings as witnesses to them and to the Gentiles. But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say, for it will not be you speaking, but the spirit of your Father speaking through you. Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death. All men will hate you because of Me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved...” All of the sudden, I couldn’t hear any discussion and a feeling of weight being lifted off my shoulders came over me. The last time I felt that was years ago on the sidewalk in front of Hope Clinic when I fell to my knees and began repenting and confessing to the Lord and asking Him into my heart that day.

 It was an euphoric feeling, God was in that courtroom and He was letting me know, “You’re not alone.” He was right there beside me helping me to carry my cross. He protected me by closing my ears. I looked up and someone tapped me on the shoulders and said, “It’s all over. 13-1 they passed the ordinance.” The reporter closest to me turned to me and said, “Any comments?” “Yes, I thank God for that one alderman. What I don’t understand is the hold that this devil has on this city. If those signs are so offensive and ugly, then why are these religious men allowing it to happen in their city? Why are they so afraid of this abortion mill?” She then spoke with our attorney and we were ushered out to the waiting media and small crowd in the hallway. We handed out the brochure “Would Jesus Carry Such Graphic Pictures?”

        We gathered on the cold sidewalk and had a closing prayer giving thanks and praise to the King of Glory. After one final T.V. interview we drove 2 blocks east of the city hall and stopped to pray outside the abortion mill where midnight late-term abortions were underway. We were told 41 mothers were inside dismembering their children. In the cold wind and darkness we prayed asking to bring this altar of sacrifice down and, “No more dead children, Lord.” And for His grace as we persevere in the battle for life. The late evening news did a fair piece. The interview began by showing the parade video that actually showed Mia’s attack that the police and mayor keep denying happened. The reporter asked, “When are you going to stop?” I answered, “We will never stop, we will always speak the truth.”

          Psalm 78:9 “The men of Ephraim, though armed with bows, turned back on the day of battle;”  What is so sad is that Granite City is equipped to fight the battle, it  has all the weaponry it needs to fight this battle and win but they have to show up! They can bring Goliath down!
