Fun Facts About Randall Terry
Randall Terry is running for the District 8 seat of the Florida State Senate. He raised $10,829.16 in 2005. Terry gained media attention for his role in the Terri Schiavo controversy.
"Our family asked Randall Terry to come, and we gave him carte blanche to put Terri's fight in front of the American people. He did exactly what we asked, and more. Randall organized vigils and protests, he coordinated the media, he helped us meet with Governor Bush, which gave us the momentum to pass the law that has saved Terri, for now, from death. My daughter is alive today because of Randall Terry's efforts."
--Bob Schindler, Sr. (Terri Schiavo’s father)
Terry runs the Society for Truth and Justice. The average person would think this is a team of super heroes. The site runs propaganda such as this.
I feel like I just watched a horror movie in which the villains are in league with powerful political figures; a nightmare scenario in which the molesters of children are strutting about in the light of day while law enforcement officials turn a blind eye to their hideous crimes, and conceal their whereabouts.
Only this is not a movie...it is reality. And it is happening thousands of times a month in our states. The heinous truth is this: every single day men guilty of rape and child molestation are taking 12, 13 and 14 year old girls to Planned Parenthood to get a pregnancy test, birth control, medication for a venereal disease, or an abortion.
Rapists actually take the time to get birth control pills. I challenge Terry to produce an impartial study to back his statements.
Terry has tried to keep his personal life private. His son Jamiel came out about being gay. John Sugg reports that two of Terry's daughters gave birth out of wedlock. That isn't the family values angle Terry wants to push.
The self-professed pro-lifer would rather people not know about James Kopp.
One of Terry’s closest co-workers - James Kopp - shot and killed Dr. Barnett A. Slepian, 52, a Buffalo obstetrician and gynecologist who performed abortions. Another of Terry’s cohorts - Pastor Matt Trewhella, founder of Missionaries to the Preborn - openly called for the formation of armed militias.
Terry himself spent five months in prison for sending one of his people to show a fetus to presidential candidate Bill Clinton in 1992, violating a federal court order. "If a Christian voted for Clinton, he sinned against God," said Terry. "It's that simple."
More mouth than muscle, Terry generally restricted himself to justifying the killing of "abortion doctors" and promising their legal execution.
"When I, or people like me, are running the country, you'd better flee," he warned, "because we will find you, we will try you, and we will execute you. I mean every word of it. I will make it part of my mission to see to it that they are tried and executed."
The same man who advocated taking over the United States and committing genocide claims to be pro-life. Terri Schiavo was a pawn for Terry to push his religious idealogy down the people's throat. The GOP will continue to bend over backwards to try to appease the likes of Terry. This is their base.
