I have nothing but praise for the attempts made by Judge Paez to keep Operation Rescue presentations objective for the jury. But the constant show-and-tell Bible-thumping tactics of the Operation Rescue people disrupted and swayed the jurors just as some attorneys have done by crying, winking, etc. to punctuate their remarks. Since a Bible is already in the courtroom for swearing-in purposes, perhaps the five Operation Rescue defendants should be asked to check their Bibles at the door if they are retried on the three deadlocked counts.

Years ago, Randall Terry and Troy Newman were brothers in arms in the struggle against legal abortion. "Troy was my son in the movement," said Terry, 50, a onetime used-car salesman from upstate New York who founded Operation Rescue in 1986. Terry rose to fame leading clinic blockades until lawsuits, jail terms and finally a stunning 1998 legal settlement forced him to abandon his militant tactics, and he faded from the forefront of the struggle. Newman, meanwhile, was an up-and-coming activist in San Diego and a spokesman for Operation Rescue there.

Randall Terry, holding an Operation Rescue psalm book and murmuring "Holy Jesus," was carried limp to a waiting police van Thursday as those he calls his enemies happily chanted, "Justice! Justice! Justice!" Despite his protests that "25 million dead kids" and not his own image should concern his followers and detractors, the 29-year-old radical anti-abortionist occupied center stage at a Cypress clinic as he brought the movement's lawless fringe to Southern California.

Beneath Bill Clinton's "deceptive veneer of Christianity" lurks a "new covenant . . . a pact from hell" which has nothing to do with biblical Christianity, asserts Operation Rescue's Randall Terry in an open letter to the clergy. True Christians can resist this "prophet of darkness," says Terry, if they repent, submit to God and cast a ballot for George Bush, "the only ethical, upright choice among the three major candidates."

Two anti-abortion activists, including the head of Operation Rescue, pleaded no contest last week to harassing patients at a medical clinic earlier this year. Randal Terry and Jeffrey White were arrested Feb. 13 after walking into Her Medical Clinic at 2700 S. Figueroa St. and shouting "murderers" at a crowd in the clinic's waiting room. Terry, 34, is the national head of the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue. White, 35, is president of the Southern California chapter of the organization.
