VIDEO: “Nonviolent” Student on rampage . . .

Student Attacker: “I Engaged My Rage”

 

Columbus, OH – April 10, 2017 – Last week, footage went viral of a Texas State University student violently attacking a Created Equal display led by ministry partners Love of Truth Ministries. Even more shocking than the student’s action was the later revelation he is currently studying “nonviolent social resistance.” Read his justification below!

 

 

In a video posted on Twitter—which has since been removed—the student says, “First off, I reject bigotry,” according to a report by The Daily Caller. He continues, “I don’t have to put up with anyone peddling some false, ignorant ideology. I engaged my rage.”

 

But goes beyond justifying himself, calling on others to follow his example: “I hope I was able to inspire a few of you all out there. I don’t know—speak up, wake up. Engage the opposition.”

 

If his brand of “engaging” is thuggery and censorship, one has to question the value of his “nonviolent resistance” studies.

 

He is now facing charges and will soon learn a concept apparently not taught in his coursework: the rule of law.

    There is no justice in today’s world. I just hope the fella that from Love of the Truth Ministries doesn’t get in trouble for being a victim and of course doing the right thing.

      Yes, we hope charges are pressed where they should be: on the man who reacted in violence and tried to censor free speech.

    That’s horrible! And unfortunately so many are like that. I had one pro choice woman three years ago. I think she wanted to kill me because of my stand on my pro life causes. Thank you Mark and all of you for the wonderful work you are doing for our pro life causes.

      It is unfortunate; but, hose who believe in violence against innocent pre-born children, can sometimes easily become violent towards born people as well. Thank you for your stand for life as well!

    This is ridiculous. Maybe we’re just tired of hearing yalls opinion. Me as women I understand I can either make the choice for abortion or not abortion. It’s my choice not yours, not my youth pastors, no ones. If I go against god to abort my child then that is my choice. These are my choices as a human being. I already live with the pain but people like y’all making worse doesn’t help. Bravo to that man. Bravo.

      You stated that you live with pain. If this is pain from a past abortion, before anything else, we want you to know that we care about you, and that we want you to find healing and forgiveness. We do not judge women who have had abortions, but we must condemn the action of abortion itself in order to save lives from it and save more women from making the choice to have their preborn child killed. You can call 800-395-4357 or visit abortionrecovery.org for 24/7 confidential post-abortion help. They will connect you with a local healing ministry, almost always directed by people with abortion in their own past who have realized it was wrong and want to help others find healing from their abortions.

      You are right that we all have choices, but what we have to discern is whether these choices are right or wrong. Any action that is a moral injustices is indeed a choice. Rape, child abuse, slavery, human trafficking, spousal abuse, terrorism, murder, hate crimes, and more are all choices. We know these choices are wrong,because they hurt and/or kill other innocent humans. That is why our law tells people they cannot make these choices. With the issue of abortion, we must look at what one is choosing.

      Abortion is the choice to directly and intentionally kill an innocent human being. Yes, this young human is different than adult humans, but none of these differences should devalue this preborn human so much that others can legally choose to have him or her dismembered.

      We should be free to make choices, but not choices that will hurt or kill other innocent humans. These choices need to be restricted by law to protect the innocent and vulnerable humans who would be victimized and killed through those choices. This includes the choice to kill an innocent human through abortion.

      It is important that both sides create dialogue on this issue, but the destruction of personal property, anger, and crime that this man resorted to is never right.

    These decisions to not kill an unborn child could cause problems what if the baby is killing the mother. It’s scientifically proven that in the early months that baby is not human yet. It is becoming human. It’s my choice what to do with MY baby and MY body. Not yours nor the governments. So when you give me a good enough reason I shall let you know. It’s my choice and that final. Im not going to be pro-life for the sake of God and because he says it’s wrong. I’ve not seen or heard from his man. I get a book that by faith and by just hoping he wrote it. I shall do what I please with MY body and MY baby.

      The assertion that “no one knows when life begins” disregards modern science. Leading embryologists, such as Drs. Keith L. Moore and T. V. N. Persaud in their embryology textbook The Developing Human: Clinically Oriented Embryology, confirm that the life of a human being begins at fertilization. Moore and Persaud write, “A zygote is the beginning of a new human being. Human development begins at fertilization.”¹ Read statements by other embryologists: http://www.createdequal.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Medical_Testimony.pdf
      1. Moore, K. and T.V.N. Persaud. The Developing Human: Clinically Oriented Embryology. 6th ed. Philadelphia: Saunders, 2002.

      This is not a controversial statement based on ideology. It is merely good science to state that at fertilization a distinct, living, whole human is created. The zygote (entity formed by sperm-egg fusion) is distinct because it is not a part of mother or father. Both sperm and egg donated their genetic material to give rise to something genetically unique. The fact that the preborn are living is evidenced by growth, cellular reproduction, metabolism, reaction to stimuli. Further, because living things reproduce after their own kind, the preborn are human. And, they are not merely parts, like sperm or egg—whose capacity to do anything is defined by their role as parts of a greater body—but are entire (though immature) human beings. A pre-born human is not the mother’s body, but a distinct human with his or her own body.

      Would you please provide your sources that state there is not a human in the early months?

      When pregnancy endangers the life of the mother, a moral crisis occurs because the lives of two people are at risk (by “life of the mother” we do not merely mean she will be inconvenienced but that her very life is threatened). The goal should be to save the lives of both mother and child, as the pro-life ethic has always been to save as many lives as possible. If the life of the mother is endangered after fetal viability¹, when the baby can survive outside the mother’s body with the help of current technology, then the solution is to try to save both lives by inducing labor or performing an emergency C-section.

      However, if the mother’s life is endangered before fetal viability, then the child will die if the mother dies. Ectopic pregnancies are the most common example of this, wherein the embryo implants someplace other than in the uterus—usually in the fallopian tube. When the tube ruptures, the baby dies and the mother could hemorrhage and die as well. In this case, we should save the mother’s life, but by means other than abortion, since that is the intentional killing of a preborn child.

      In the case of an ectopic pregnancy, a physician would perform a salpingectomy to remove the part of the fallopian tube in which the child has implanted, thereby saving the mother’s life. The embryo will die as a result of this procedure, but the intention is to save a life—not take one. In other words, the baby’s death is foreseen, but it is not intended. The only reason she dies is because we currently lack technology to keep her living once we remove her from the environment in which she cannot survive.

      This moral crisis would be like carrying one person out of a burning building and then looking back, seeing other people who are about to die. You foresee that they will die, but it is the fire, not you, causing their deaths. You are not guilty of their loss. Rather, your duty is to save as many lives as you can—even if it is just one person.

      1. It should be noted that the age of viability changes with advances in medical technology and also varies with geographical access to current technology. If it were medically possible to keep the youngest of preborn humans alive outside the womb, this question would lose its relevance as there would be this obvious solution.

      These arguments are based on science and philosophy. If you will not believe abortion is wrong because of religion, believe it is wrong because of scientific evidence and reason.

      Abortion is a choice, but we have to decide if the choice is right or wrong. The choice of abortion kills an innocent human being. That is fact. Our role as fellow humans, and our government’s role, is to protect the innocent and helpless in society. This should include the helpless preborn children who are killed through abortion.

  • Mom

    And you’re right but we don’t know what happened before th video started. I’ve been to many event and there are always pro-life people making me listen and will follow me. They tried to pull me aside as a child to let me know yet I still disagree.

      You can see at the beginning of the video that the young man has just approached the display.

      We do not know who the people you have talked to are or what they may have said, but I encourage you to listen to our reasoning with an open mind. Thank you for continuing the conversation!
