Pastor Walter Hoye Support Rally & Press Conference

OAKLAND, Calif., Mar. 31 /Christian Newswire/ -- On April 4, 2009 at 9:00am there will be a Rally and Press Conference in front of the City Hall in Oakland, California. On this 41st anniversary of the slaying of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Pro-Life and Christian leaders will stand in support and unity for another civil rights leader, Pastor Walter Hoye, who was arrested for standing in front of an abortion facility with a sign reading, "Jesus loves you and your baby, let us help you."

"Pastor Walter Hoye embodies Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy, standing up for the least of these, the vulnerable mothers and their babies." said Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Pro-Life Unity President, Peter Shinn, Pastor Dion Evans, point man for the unjustly jailed Pastor Hoye, and Mrs. Lori Hoye, wife of Pastor Hoye will be speaking at the Press Conference along with other Pro-Life and Christian leaders.

Peter Shinn stated "Pastor Hoye stands on the front- lines of the battle for the unborn, risking his freedom, challenging pastors, preachers and church leaders everywhere to get involved in the Pro-Life movement. As Pastor Hoye preaches: 'Like Ezekiel if we fail to warn the people of impending danger their blood will be on our hands.'"

Pastor Hoye had this to say from his jail cell, "As I look through the bars of my incarceration the Holy Spirit occupies my mind with three (3) thoughts:

First, the words of Edmund Burke -- "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." Second, my thoughts turn to the testimony of Dr. Luke who wrote that Barnabas and Paul were "men who have risked their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." (Acts 15:26) Finally, I recall the words of Peter and the other apostles who said, "We ought to obey God rather than men." (Acts 5:29)

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere" - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s letter from the Birmingham Jail - 1963

There will be a live Internet broadcast of the events at ProLifeUnity.com and ProLifeNews.tv starting at 9:00 am, April the 4th.
