WASHINGTON, D.C. (A Humble Plea) - Randall Terry has announced the convening of peaceful demonstrations and Press conferences in 18 major cities on Thursday Oct. 29, 2008. We present the announcement as a service. Many readers have written in response to Randall's article asking about such events.(Editor)

****

Will you join us in reaching the Catholics and Evangelicals in your community? Will you lead an event in your town? If Christians hear the truth spoken with love and clarity many will ultimately reject Obama, and protect the babies with their vote.

On Thursday, October 30, at 12 noon local time, we are holding peaceful demonstrations and press conferences in front of Obama Headquarters across the country. We currently have 18 cities; we could hit 25 or 30. (Go to www.humbleplea.com to see the current list of cities, contact info, and addresses.)

We are asking you to join us in a scheduled event, or to pull one together over the next day. We have total instructions and a press release template at www.humbleplea.com.

Our message will be simple and heartfelt:

"Dear Christian voters, please don't turn your back on the babies with your vote. If Obama is elected, it will cost millions of children their lives.We all know the economy is in trouble; we are all feeling pressure on our families; we all would like the war to be over, and immigration fixed; but we cannot put these issues ahead of the lives of innocent babies."

It is to the point, and cuts to the heart of the matter.

Many of us have been distressed that abortion has not been a very key part of this election, even though in the hierarchy of issues and evils, it is the paramount battle of our times.

The truth is, the reason abortion has fallen off the radar screen is because we have let it. We have not had actions and rhetoric equal to the crime of child-killing.But we still have a window of time to reach our brethren. And what better way to reach them with the truth than on the front page of our papers, our local TV News, and our local radio and internet outlets?

We can take action that stands a good chance of getting covered by the press and media; a demonstration and press conference that show we will not let child-killing by abortion be ignored. It is a matter of life and death.Let me tell you clearly: we need you. Even if you have never done anything like this before, you can do it. Yes, you can do it in one day.

Just follow the instructions we have laid out at www.humbleplea.com. If you will take those steps, you have a great chance of getting your message out to hundreds of thousands of Christians in your area.Remember this: Truth has within it the seeds of its own victory; lies have within them the seeds of their own destruction.

Our duty is to herald the truth with as much clarity and courage and charity as we can, and to get our message out to as many people as possible.What better way than the front page of your local newspaper, or your local TV News? We have one week left to beg our fellow Catholics and Evangelical Christian brethren who intend to vote for Obama to come to their senses, and forsake their treacherous plans.

Will you help? Go to www.humbleplea.com and read the instructions. Then call us right away at 904-687-9804, and we will ad you to the list of those who dare to lift their voices for the voiceless.
