It has been confirmed that the murder this morning of a pro-life activist happened because of his prophetic witness to society concerning the murder of the unborn. According to LifeSiteNews:
Prosecutors said Drake told them he targeted Pouillon because of his pro-life activities.
“There was some displeasure with how open he was,” said … Shiawassee County chief assistant prosecutor Sara Edwards, according to a New York Times report. “He tended to carry big signs with very graphic pictures of fetuses.”
The murdered activist, Jim Pouillon, refused to declare “peace, peace when there is no peace,” instead exposing evil and trumpeting the righteous cause of protecting the innocent. Flip Benham, leader of Operation Save America, had this to say about the victim, and the meaning of his death:
We may have lost a fellow soldier in the cultural war that we are fighting, but it is a historical fact that the persecution of the Church emboldens Christians to stand for Jesus, no matter what the cost.
“We knew Jim as ‘Jim for Michigan’. Jim would often call and say ‘Hello Flip, this is Jim from Michigan’ and go on to tell of his most recent exploits for Jesus at the school, the abortion mill, the Governor’s Mansion or anywhere that he could stand up and be a voice for the babies. ‘I’d say, God bless you brother and Jim always answered, He already has, I got to talk to you today, brother’.” Flip Benham, director of Operation Save America.
Rev. Cal Zastrow, of Michigan, and one of Operation Save America’s leaders said of Jim, “Jim was a very peaceful man, against any type of violence. I was with Jim in the past when his life was threatened and he would just praise God in the midst of it. He got his martyr’s crown this morning!”.
We honor Jim Pouillon today. A faithful witness that died in the line of duty.
