VIDEO of Cardinal Gerhard Müller of Germany's Statement of Support during Visit to Pro-Life Father of 7, Mark Houck who was Arrested by the FBI
Cardinal Gerhard Müller of Germany, served as the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) from his appointment by Pope Benedict XVI in 2012 until 2017. On October 12th, he visited the home and family of Mark Houck. Houck is a pro-life father, of seven children, who was arrested on September 23rd by several FBI agents at his home (see details of the incident below the video). The family lives in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA
Cardinal Muller said, persecution of the good people is always a sign of the beginning of dictatorship and tyranny. We see this in all of the world but especially in the beginning with Herod in the New Testament, but also now with Putin who is persecuting the brave and good Ukranian people and all the children of the account of his will of power. But the United States has always had the leadership for democracy and democracy doesn't work when there is no respect of basic rights of life and personal integrity of your body, and your Liberty. We are citizens of the states and not serfs of some ideological leaders. We have bad experiences with some leaders who who reject our own reason. The administration and government of democratic states have to serve the people and not the other way around. Therefore I cannot accept the griefs of a peaceful father defending his son, defending the right of life of the babies, is so mistreated. This is not acceptable and this is a scandal. They are making America ridiculous in the eyes of society.
Mr. Houck has entered a plea of not guilty to two violations of the federal Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, of which he is accused. The court date is scheduled for January 24th, 2023 in Philadelphia.
