Ohio Christian Alliance
February 8, 2019
The Ohio Christian Alliance, with a list of national and regional pro-life, pro-family, legal advocacy organizations, signed a letter that was sent to the Department of Justice in Washington, D.C. Civil Rights Division, as well as the FBI field offices in Cincinnati and Louisville, KY, calling for the FBI to investigate the dangerous threats that were made against the Covington Catholic Christian School students.
On Tuesday, January 29th, a press conference was held in Cincinnati at Fountain Square. Here is the report from the Cincinnati Enquirer The report indicated that the FBI was working with local law enforcement in Covington, KY, investigating the threats that came against the students and the Christian Catholic high school.
UPDATE: OCA President Chris Long received a call from the Special Agent working in the Covington FBI office, confirming that the office was in receipt of our letter and confirmed that the FBI was working with local law enforcement to investigate the threats that were made against the school and its students. The indication was that charges will be filed in the coming weeks, if not days, against those who made threats against the students, their families, and Covington Catholic High School.
OCA President Chris Long made the following statement, “We are pleased that the FBI and law enforcement officials are taking this matter seriously. These Christian students did nothing wrong, but a hate campaign was waged against them as they stood for the unborn by participating in the Annual March for Life. While waiting for their bus at the Lincoln Memorial steps after the march, they became the target of counter protesters. We encourage the FBI and Justice Department to thoroughly investigate, utilizing the video tapes and the twitter statements from individuals who made threats against the students. We have said from the beginning that this is a watershed moment. A message needs to be sent to the public at large that making threats against minors resulting in harassment and potential danger is not free speech, but is in fact criminal activity.”
