Commander In Chief, Army of God, USA
The arrival of the message coincided with the news that
several people publicly identified with the Army of God are going to attend a
rally in Buffalo, NY
for the thirtieth Anniversary of the Supreme Court decision legalizing the
slaughter of unborn babies in the United
States of America.
No more details are available at this moment, but updates
will be provided as they come in.
National publicity and hundreds of email
responses to the article above prove the American people are sitting on pins
and needles waiting for the next catastrophe to happen to a nation in
rebellion against the God of Abraham.
A few examples prove the point:

wary of plans for rally by Army of God
WASHINGTON - From the U.S. Department
of Justice to the Buffalo Police Department, authorities are vowing to
prevent violence when radical anti-abortion protesters travel to the city
later this month in support of confessed killer James C. Kopp.
"The U.S. attorney from the
Western District of New York is fully aware of the situation and is working
with federal and local law enforcement to make sure that day passes
peacefully," said Mark Corallo, a spokesman
for U.S. Attorney General John D. Ashcroft.
Law enforcement's concerns escalated Friday after receipt of a
message that purports to be from the Army of God, a shadowy, leaderless
group that has been connected with abortion clinic bombings in the past.

signed by the "Commander in Chief, Army of God, USA."

who was profiled in an HBO documentary on the Army of God, defined the army
as "an amorphous, autonomous eruption of rage on the part of
individuals pushed to the point by legalized abortion that they're not
willing to take it anymore, and will use what's at their disposal to stop
it, which tends to be bombs and rifles."

investigators are already looking into plans for the rally. Local, state
and federal law enforcement will all work to prevent violence at Buffalo's Womenservices clinic, he said. Law enforcement will

rights advocates interpreted the Army of God message as a form of
intimidation rather than as a promise of violence.
"This declaration is a clear-cut terroristic
threat intended to intimidate abortion providers," said Glenn E.
Murray, a pro-choice attorney. "This is home-grown terrorism of the

“Dear Neal, feel free to forward this response
to anyone you like. I read the "urgent AOG communique" and came to the obvious conclusion: it is
absolutely not genuine. Therefore, it was put out by someone on the
other side trying to stir up trouble. It could be the FBI, someone in
the media, or someone directly involved in the torture and slaughter of preborn American babies. I say this to whoever sent
the message: It wasn't even a good try, you stupid idiot. You need to learn
more about the Army of God before you try to set us up in such a bungling
manner. You don't even know what we believe. We insist that there
is no such thing as "legal
slaughter". Abortion always has been and always will be absolutely
illegal. The real giveaway was in
claiming to be the "Commander-In-Chief of the Army of God".
None of the mortals among us have appointed himself as the
commander-in-chief, nor have we, as a group elected
anyone from among ourselves! to be a commander-in-chief. Someday we may
have such a leader, but for now we only recognize the God of the Bible as our
Commander-In-Chief. Neal, since you have been in contact with the media
in Buffalo, do you think you
should contact them and let them know that this goofy communique
did not originate from anyone of our associates? By doing so you may defuse
some future trouble. We don't need anyone starting trouble with us under any

“Well, now. It is a good thing that we shall have signs
showing which side we are on. I wouldn't want an AOG operative to confuse me
with either a direct baby killer or one of his accomplices.”

our LORD is the Commander in Chief and He doesn't use e-mail, I would think
this is an impostor.
Dear Neal, I just finished
reading a book about Lech Walesa
and how the solidarity movement in Poland freed them from Communis -- and they were non-violoent. They also went on to overturn their laws on
abortion, and are now the only counrty in the West
to have done that. We need Pro Life
Solidarity here to end our war on abortion
Leaders like Neal and Steve, HLI, PFL, etc need to rally pro lifers,
but not by implying any kind of force.
It must be peaceful and in union with the Church. We need to get everyone to stop doing what
they normally do on Jan. 22, and join together in prayer for the end of
abortion-- a form of strike just the way they did theirs. Why not look for ways that work instead of
glamorizing violence which is a sin and does not solve the problem?
A concerned sister,
Hi Neal: I am praying that whatever may be up is not
going to take more
lives. One wrong
doesn't make another right. Our Lord
clearly tells us
that Vengeance is His, He will repay. Life is very precious as I know you
and in keeping with that thought our Lord says Blessed are the peace
makers, not the murderers of those who murder. I hate Abortion, it is an
but I do not and cannot condone those who think they have the
right to kill those who are doing something our land
has named Legal.
to them, they are within the Law. As
mad as that Law is, it is
the Leaders of our Land that are guilty of making
such Laws. America's Law
Abortion is insane but that is never an excuse to murder or maim those
killing with the sanction of our country. I pray for all
the unsaved, I want
them to love Life, to love the Way, the Truth, the
Light Jesus Christ.
few do that's why I will continue to pray for every
every Nurse working in the Murder Mills, every woman who thinks
her right to murder her own children, and also for every child of God
who is convinced they have to stop the blood
shed. Our work, as true
is to Preach the whole word of our Lord, He died to save sinners,
rose again to give Life to sinners who will believe Him. This is such
news that we should be shouting it from the roof tops, not
shooting and killing.
We've been called to give Life not take it.
I will keep this in my
prayers. May God give them victory.
I pray it happens!! If it can happen there, the Army Of
God and liason's can make happen
EVERYWHERE! Maybe this so-called movement will one day MOOOOVE!
When and if it ever does, every prochoice mind will
run or faint. For that is the way of cowards and that is what they are!!! Maranatha Lord Jesus King of kings and Lord of lords!
AMEN & AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!
