TITUSVILLE, FL (FR) – This was the second residential picket of Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando CEO Susan Idtensohn’s neighborhood on Saturday, October 29th, 2011. Idtensohn is the outspoken director of an abortion mill in the heart of the black community near downtown Orlando. She lives in a lovely, spacious house about 45 minutes away on the Indian River Lagoon overlooking the Kennedy Space Center launch pad.
The first Awareness Campaign in Idtensohn’s community was on July 19th 2011.
Peaceful pickets of abortionist’s neighborhoods follow the law and provide a good model of concerned citizens using their first amendment rights to speech, press, assembly, religion and petition.
The highlight of this most recent awareness campaign and picket was the dialog and debate between long-time Melbourne-area pro-life evangelist Frank Campana and a neighbor who spouted every pro-abort cliché in the book. While Campana’s response was boisterous, this contender ironically caused the biggest disturbance to the neighborhood in contrast to the peaceful singing, picketing and praying of 33 Christians on this beautiful fall afternoon from 4 to 6 pm.
The effect of an Awareness Campaign is always to divide the community with strong reactions on either side.
We also met a Jewish Rabbi and his wife who stopped his car and thanked us for what we were doing. His wife took pictures of the procession as Lisa Campana spoke with them.
John Barros and Amber Carroll went door to door and talked to Sue’s neighbors. One of her neighbors who lives directly across the street said that they are Christians and had lived there for many years. They had no idea that Sue kill babies for a living. They said that the Idtensohns seemed like such “nice” people. This happens at every neighborhood awareness event. It is always touching to me to see the hurt looks on Christians’ faces when they realize their neighbor is a baby killer. We tell them to pray for their conversion and true repentance. We ask them to share the love of Jesus.
We heard last summer that Idtensohn was selling her home and planned to move out of state. Some might ask: If she is moving in the near future, was it still an effective picket?
Here is a clip from an article in Orlando Weekly from 2006 that answers that question.
PPGO’s capital campaign continues, with the count currently at $1.9 million — and none of that money has come through federal funding. The funds will be used to open a much-needed facility in Brevard County. After that, it’s on to Osceola and Seminole.
Yes, Planned Parenthood of Orlando, even after Idtensohn’s departure, has plans to open up abortion “super centers” on the Space Coast and throughout central Florida. We also know abortionist James Pendergraft would like to open late term killing places in Cocoa, Florida and elsewhere.
But dedicated gentle Christians will be coming to their communities and preaching the Word of God — that child murder is an abomination that brings a curse on our land.
Of course, articles in the pro-abortion media featuring Sue Idtensohn as a “family planning advocate” never mention the word “abortion.” The lasting legacy for Sue Idtensohn will be that people will remember them not as crusaders for women’s rights, but as child murderers.
Every abortionist, clinic owner and worker in central Florida will have a legacy written in the blood of the innocents. Eventually, no one will desire that legacy, either due to the gift of repentance or simply the shame that comes through having their bloody deeds of darkness exposed. This will come as Christians obey the Ephesians 5:11 mandate: “Have nothing to do with the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.”

Who is the Real Jesus?
Ever since the dawn of modern rationalism, skeptics have sought to use textual criticism, archeology and historical reconstructions to uncover the “historical Jesus” — a wise teacher who said many wonderful things, but fulfilled no prophecies, performed no miracles and certainly did not rise from the dead in triumph over sin.
Over the past 100 years, however, startling discoveries in biblical archeology and scholarship have all but vanquished the faulty assumptions of these doubting modernists. Regrettably, these discoveries have often been ignored by the skeptics as well as by the popular media. As a result, the liberal view still holds sway in universities and impacts the culture and even much of the church.
The Real Jesus explodes the myths of these critics and the movies, books and television programs that have popularized their views. Presented in ten parts — perfect for individual, family and classroom study — viewers will be challenged to go deeper in their knowledge of Christ in order to be able to defend their faith and present the truth to a skeptical modern world – that the Jesus of the Gospels is the Jesus of history — “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the real Jesus.
Speakers include: George Grant, Ted Baehr, Stephen Mansfield, Raymond Ortlund, Phil Kayser, David Lutzweiler, Jay Grimstead, J.P. Holding, and Eric Holmberg.

Is there a connection between pagan religion and the abortion industry?
This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.
Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.
The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?
As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).
Speakers include: George Grant, Peter Hammond, RC Sproul Jr., Paul Jehle, Lou Engle, Rusty Thomas, Flip Benham, Janet Porter and many more.

Who is the dreaded beast of Revelation?
Now at last, a plausible candidate for this personification of evil incarnate has been identified (or re-identified). Ken Gentry’s insightful analysis of scripture and history is likely to revolutionize your understanding of the book of Revelation — and even more importantly — amplify and energize your entire Christian worldview!
Historical footage and other graphics are used to illustrate the lecture Dr. Gentry presented at the 1999 Ligonier Conference in Orlando, Florida. It is followed by a one-hour question and answer session addressing the key concerns and objections typically raised in response to his position. This presentation also features an introduction that touches on not only the confusion and controversy surrounding this issue — but just why it may well be one of the most significant issues facing the Church today.
Ideal for group meetings, personal Bible study — for anyone who wants to understand the historical context of John’s famous letter “… to the seven churches which are in Asia.” (Revelation 1:4)

“Give me liberty or give me death!”
Patrick Henry’s famous declaration not only helped launch the War for Independence, it also perfectly summarized the mindset that gave birth to, and sustained, the unprecedented experiment in Christian liberty that was America.
The freedom our Founders envisioned was not freedom from suffering, want, or hard work. Nor was it freedom to indulge every appetite or whim without restraint—that would merely be servitude to a different master. No, the Founders’ passion was to live free before God, unfettered by the chains of autocracy, shackles that slowly but inexorably bind men when the governments they fashion fail to recognize and uphold freedom’s singular, foundational truth: that all men are created in the image of God, and are thereby co-equally endowed with the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
This presentation is a similar call, not to one but many. By reintroducing the principles of freedom that gave birth to America, it is our prayer that Jesus, the true and only ruler over the nations, will once again be our acknowledged Sovereign, that we may again know and exult in the great truth that “where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty” (2 Cor. 3:17).
Welcome to the Second American Revolution!
This DVD features “Liberty: The Model of Christian Liberty” along with “Dawn’s Early Light: A Brief History of America’s Christian Foundations.” Bonus features include a humorous but instructive collection of campaign ads and Eric Holmberg’s controversial YouTube challenge concerning Mitt Romney’s campaign for president.
