  1. Walter you are in my thoughts and prayers and may you be strengthened through the Holy Spirit! Reflect on St Paul and his writings…may God be with you and your movement! Peace to you from New Orleans, LA

  2. Hey Dad! I love you very much, and I am praying for you everyday.

  3. Rev. Hoye: I recently learned of your ministry, and then read your account of your trial and verdict. The Holy Spirit has used it to speak to me in a very powerful way. I am forwarding your message to others. I will be praying for you. Thank you for being a light in this dark world!

  4. Rev. Hoye,
    God bless you in your efforts for HIM!. You give me encouragement as I am a sidewalk counselor in front of an abortion clinic. We have no “bubble ordinance”, but very aggressive clinic escorts who come in great numbers on Saturdays. After seeing the videos of you in front of the clinic, I don’t know how a jury could have ruled “guilty” without the influence of Satan blinding them.
    I will be praying for you and your family.

  5. Rev. Hoye

    You are in my prayers today. God bless you and your courageous work advocating choosing Life in this culture of death.

  7. Rev. Hoye, I am very grateful for your contribution to the Life Movement. I am a mother with many children; it is difficult for me to get out and be alongside the pro-lifers in front of the abortuaries. Yet, I pray every day that the Culture of Life Movement grow in strength, love and numbers!

    Your activity is wonderful. However, I hope you don’t go to jail; your passionate presence outside on the sidewalk is where you should always remain! Yet, if God chooses, and you are put in prison, I will pray for you everyday. You are a true saint; you are one of my heroes. God bless you, Rev. Hoye. And God bless your beautiful family.

  8. Dear Pastor Hoye,God Bless you from Sarajevo, BiH. Your smile is such a blessing. Clearly you are in the Spirit and cannot be moved.We are from U.S. and working to start a pro-life movement, Crisis Preg. Post abortion & all the related needs. We will pray for you.

  9. Reverend Hoye,
    I have just learned of and watched videos of your ministry and WOW! It looked to me as if the harassing was on their part, not yours’! I work in a small pregnancy center in Tennessee (in the “Bible Belt”) and have never experienced such attacks by Satan. We do have our own battles but I will be praying for you and yours’.
    In the Army Together!

  10. I will be praying for you and your work every day. My heart goes out for those many unborn souls that are crying to be heard. Spfld.Il.

  11. My family and I just read about your case and watched your interview on youtube. We are saddened by the actions of the City Council, clearly aimed at silencing you from peacefully expressing your concern for the fate of your fellow citizens. May God have mercy on our country. Yet we know that because you have stood and continue to stand firm for what is right and good and what was once thought of as inalienable, God is at work and is right now using these events to accomplish His purposes. May you find peace and comfort in this time of separation from your earthly family in Berkeley. May you find strength and vision in this time of unity with your spiritual family across the country.

  12. God bless & keep! You will be rewarded, if not here and now, then there and later on!
    I would love to post your article on unsafe abortion on but there is a problem with the citation — no number 3 (from what I can gather)…
    Can you help?

  13. Dear Rev. Hoye,
    Thank you for standing up for life.

    The following is an excerpt from my forthcoming book entitled “Birth Control and Abortifacients” published by LifeCycle Books.

    Where is the Black Moral Leadership?

    The challenges we face in our communities are many, poverty, immorality, drugs, crime, divorce, bigotry, euthanasia, and the most destructive of all, abortion. Abortion has become an issue of racial genocide people of “color”, but especially for African Americans.
    Human life is too frequently devalued in our society. For far too long the issue of abortion has been absent from the agenda of the African American leadership, as the number of abortions increase.
    In 1972, two prophetic studies published in the American Journal of Public Health, showed a widespread worry among blacks that family planning programs were a potential means of racial genocide, especially if the programs provided sterilization and were run by whites. Unfortunately, these studies were not taken seriously.
    Abortion very often is touted as an economic solution for poor women, i.e., “Black women.” Strident, pro-abortion feminists cry for abortion as a “right” for which they must fight to keep.
    The Black community has benefited neither socially or economically from an atrocity that is enthusiastically promoted by those who make millions of dollars per year from dead African American babies; and by those who seek to entice the Black community to self-genocide through abortion. Therefore, the disproportionate number of abortions by Black Americans, as compared to our percentage of the general population, is more than a social phenomenon. It is destructive and genocidal.
    The overall abortion rate is 21 per 1,000 U.S. women (i.e., each year 2.1% of all women of reproductive age have an abortion). Black and Hispanic women have higher abortion rates than non-Hispanic white women do. (The rates are 49 per 1,000 and 33 per 1,000 among black and Hispanic women, respectively, vs. 13 per 1,000 among non-Hispanic white women.) Black and Hispanic women have higher abortion rates primarily because they have higher rates of unintended pregnancy.
    This means that every five minutes four black children are killed by surgical abortion — that’s 1,452 every day; sacrificed for any or no reason. The seeds of the eugenics movement of which abortion is only one way it is manifested, are bearing a bountiful harvest. More than 17.5 million abortions have been done on black women and abortion businesses are frequently located in minority communities. Black women are 4.8 times as likely as non-Hispanic white women to have an abortion, and Hispanic women are 2.7 times as likely. In addition, Black and Hispanic women together make up more than half (51.8%) of women having abortions. This proportion is far greater than their proportion in the population.
    The history of America’s number one abortion “provider,” Planned Parenthood, reeks with the stench of racism and bigotry that adds another level to the insidious attack that has been waged on African-American women throughout the United States. African-American women are not only exploited by abortion, but have been targeted by radical population control groups like the International Planned Parenthood Federation who want to control the birth rate of the African-American community and people of color throughout the world.
    It is ironic that the Democratic Party, which has worked so hard to be the voice of the powerless and the voiceless would not champion the cause for innocent defenseless unborn human life. It is interesting that a political party that was at the nucleus of the Civil Rights Movement would support less protection for the unborn child than almost any civilized country in the world.
    Not only is the issue of abortion not being dealt with by the black clergy or black politicians, in fact, abortion is often actually encouraged by some of these “leaders”.
    Sanger claimed that her interest in limiting the size of families through contraceptive practices was awakened by the suffering of mothers who were weakened physically, or died on account of excessive pregnancies, abortions, and poor economic conditions.
    Her hostility towards the Catholic Church she attributed to the Church’s uncompromising opposition to her efforts.
    Sanger was a lifelong champion of birth control and eugenics (the movement devoted to “improving” the human species by control of hereditary factors in reproduction). For a number of years she edited a magazine called the Birth Control Review. Here she gave a platform for numerous articles on these issues, often written by racists, Nazi sympathizers, and/or eugenicists.
    Sanger called for the sterilization of “genetically inferior races”. In 1939, after the organization changed its name from the American Birth Control League (ABCL) to the Birth Control Federation of America (BCFA), she organized her “Negro Project” and wrote, “the poorer areas, particularly in the South… are producing alarmingly more than their share of future generations.” “The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the Minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members”.
    The aim of Sanger’s program was to restrict — many believe exterminate — the black population. Under the pretense of “better health” and “family planning,” Sanger cleverly implemented her plan. “What’s more shocking is Sanger’s beguilement of black America’s créme de la crème – those prominent, well educated and well-to-do into executing her scheme. Some within the black elite saw birth control as a means to attain economic empowerment, elevate the race and garner the respect of whites.”
    Professor Dorothy Roberts comments: “Black concerns about family planning had arisen during Margaret Sanger’s crusade for birth control. As Sanger allied herself with the burgeoning eugenics movement, the call for birth control veered away from its radical, feminist origins to include programs to regulate the poor, immigrants and blacks, based on theories of genetic inferiority and social degeneracy. Some blacks of the period, including the nationalist leader Marcus Garvey, opposed birth control as a form of ‘race suicide.’ Yet black women in disproportionate numbers enthusiastically used the few birth control clinics that were available to them. The prominent civil rights figure Dr. W.E.B. DuBois publicly endorsed birth control as a means of improving black health and denounced the argument that blacks should rely on a high birthrate to fight discrimination. Blacks’ advocacy of birth control as a tool for racial betterment sharply differed, however, from the eugenic agenda. White eugenicists promoted birth control as a way of preserving an oppressive social structure; blacks like DuBois promoted birth control as a way of toppling it.”
    DuBois, in his article Black Folk and Birth Control, noted the “inevitable clash of ideals between those Negroes who were striving to improve their economic position and those whose religious faith made the limitation of children a sin.” He criticized the “mass of ignorant Negroes” who bred “carelessly and disastrously so that the increase among [them] … is from that part of the population least intelligent and fit, and least able to rear their children properly.”
    Margaret Sanger’s plan has worked extraordinarily well over time — today numerous black religious leaders defend the “right” of women to kill their unborn children. It’s ironic that many black leaders complain about racism, saying that white people are trying to keep them down, yet they promote one of the most racist policies in this country—abortion.
    One of the ways that Planned Parenthood and others have encouraged black and other Americans to abort their unborn children is by convincing them that the child is not a human but a “fetus”. Abortion propagandists have dehumanized the unborn baby just as was done with the Jews in the Holocaust. In his book Abortion Practice, Warren Hern, M.D. compares the unborn child to a “parasite”, which was the exact word Hitler used to dehumanize Jews in his infamous Mein Kampf. To Hitler, the extermination of Jews was “religious choice”.
    This same principle was applied in America with blacks and slavery. Many whites at one time hung blacks from trees. It was condoned because these whites did not see blacks as persons; they saw their inhuman actions as “racial choice”.
    Now in America millions of unborn babies are being killed because they are known as a “fetus” and not a person. This is known as “reproductive choice”.
    The Genocide Awareness Project (GAP— publicly displays large posters comparing Jewish Holocaust victims, blacks killed in racist lynchings and aborted babies to teach the “conceptual similarity between abortion and more widely recognized forms of genocide”. The Project travels across the United States showing the display at major Universities and other appropriate locations.
    Since the United States Supreme Court legalized abortion in 1973, over 17 million black babies have been aborted. That is about one third or more of the black population in the United States! Approximately two out of three black babies are aborted in the U.S. If that is not racial genocide, what is? What will it take for the Black moral leadership in America to come to grips with this reality? The blood of 50 million unborn babies cries out from the ground for justice. And the future of our nation, which tolerates the unjust execution of these innocents, depends on it.
    “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” — Martin Luther King, Jr.
    Dr. Martin Luther King’s niece, Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life, stated, “If the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is to live, our babies must live.”

    You do not have to publish this in your blog. I just want you to know that your are not alone and know of no other way to contact you. I thank God for men and women like you who are willing to stand up for life. Civil disobedience to unjust laws is necessary to save the lives of the most innocent. We need thousands upon thousands of people willing to defend life, even if it means going to jail. Know that you and all those who are with us in this fight are in my prayers.
