Many of you are aware, that thanks to our precious pro-life media, such as http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/ottawa-cop-takes-camera-from-pro-lifer-filming-arrest-threat-deletes-all-fi LifeSiteNews.ca and http://www.sunnewsnetwork.ca/
Sun News Media, my rights as a law-abiding Canadian citizen were totally ignored and violated by the Ottawa police on March 14, 2013. I have done a lot of self-reflection since that traumatic incident.I was filming the harassment of my pro-life friend, ‘Cy Winter’ by the Ottawa Police for a half hour when Officer Clark crossed the street, came and intimidated me and stole my camera and destroyed all my photos. He insisted that I give him my camera even though I immediately asked him which law gave him the right to do this. He gave no answer but insisted in having my camera. Not knowing my rights I surrendered my camera to Officer Clark. I shared this with ‘Michael Coren’ of Sun News Media and also LifeSiteNews.Cy and I were both within our legal rights, he to demonstrate peacefully and legally on a public sidewalk against ‘Aborterrorism’, the killing of innocent children in the womb, and myself to document police harassment of Cy across the street from me.The police instead of doing what they are mandated to do, i.e., to uphold the law and protect human life and their rights are doing the exact opposite. As Officer Clark was leaving me I said to him:“Officer, have you ever witnessed an abortion? If not, I invite you to go across the street to the abortion clinic. That is where they kill the babies!”This was my way of telling Officer Clark that the Ottawa police are chasing the wrong people. They are protecting the killers of babies and harassing pro-lifers such as Cy and I who are trying to save human life, to save babies.This is the evil age we live in today. The higher powers such as politicians, lawyers, police forces, etc for the most part are increasingly serving evil rather than enforcing justice. Thank God we still have some honest, God-fearing, God-loving people in positions of authority.Now what should be a normal reaction to incidents like this on the part of the police?The least that the Ottawa Police should do is acknowledge that the behaviour of their police towards Cy and I was against the law, and issue a public apology. Cy was harassed and assaulted by the police and I suffered intimidation and theft of my camera and destruction of my personal property, i.e., my photos.What the higher powers, i.e., politicians, lawyers and police forces have to realize is that the injustices committed by them will be reckoned with eventually. If they don’t acknowledge and repent of their wrongdoings on earth they will have to give account of it on their personal day of judgment by Jesus Christ upon their death.“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, and after this the judgment.” (Hebrews 9:27)So as pro-lifers, when faced with and dealing with law enforcers who do not respect the law and trample upon our God-given and our Constitutional rights what should we do?Do not let fear take over and surrender! Continue the good fight with ‘love in Truth’ against the whole abominable ‘Culture of Death’. “For God hath not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of sobriety.”(2 Timothy 1:7) “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me, your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” (Psalm 23:4)As for myself, I have determined many years ago to speak forth the ‘Truth in Love’ (cf: Caritas in Veritate.) against the Culture of Death, i.e.’ abortion, euthanasia, homosexuality, etc., to the point of ‘laying down my life’. “Greater love than this no man hath, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13)During his protests of abortion taking place at the Mortgentaler abortion clinic at 65 Bank St., Ottawa, the life of my friend ‘Cy’ is always ‘on the line’. Cy is a prime example of this. He has laid down his life for the unborn children, the unborn “babies”. He has received many death threats already but he has not run away in fear. He is facing evil head-on. He is a Christian, a man of Faith, a man of prayer and a man of great compassion for all human beings, from the moment of their conception in the womb.What is Cy’s response to public verbal abuse and death threats? He usually replies with:
“May God bless you with a conversion.”
Cy is in effect saying to his persecutors: “I pray that you will come to a personal ‘encounter’ with ‘Jesus Christ’, so that the veil of SIN will be removed from your eyes, and you will then recognize the many evils surrounding the ‘Culture of Death’, such as abortion, euthanasia and same-sex marriage, etc.”When you come into a ‘personal relationship’ with ‘Jesus Christ’, the Son of God, our Saviour, you encounter true LOVE and the TRUTH and begin to live a Heaven on earth, rather than a Hell on earth. Understand? (cf: www.striveforheavennow.ca (cf: page ‘Perfect Love’)“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy, I am come that they may have life, and may have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)When Jesus enters your life, He grants you eternal life and life more abundantly.As a pro-lifer, are you willing to pay the price in order to win the war against the ‘Culture of Death’? People such as Linda Gibbons, Mary Wagner and William Whatcott have paid the price in many ways.My pro-life friends, it is a vicious spiritual warfare, but never forget, we have mighty weapons at our disposal through prayer (e.g. the Rosary) and fasting, the Sacraments of the Church, the Word of God and the Teachings of the Catholic Church and an army of pro-life soldiers like ourselves.No matter where we are, outside of prison or illegally put in prison, we must continue to speak forth the Truth in Love in order to ‘set the captives free’ by letting the light and love of Christ flow through us to all those who are slaves to sin and the Culture of Death.Donald Andre Bruneau,March 24, 2013.
