Journalist, Jamison Faught of Muskogee Politico said; "Not really a surprise if you've ever followed the AHA group. If you're not 100% on board with them, you're essentially with the Devil. You can even be an abolitionist, but if you're not with their abolitionist group it's not good enough."
Russell Hunter is passionate and he tends to view anyone who charts a different course or strategic design as being either duped, or worse. He justified his pronouncement with this statement;
"Listen, I see that you are trying to use my Facebook post against Dan and I get the desperation, but honestly, what I am saying is pretty simple and I think for those who really think about it and know the issues they will understand what I’m arguing.
There is an opportunity in Oklahoma to seriously seek justice and mercy for or preborn neighbors and to truly push back darkness with light, error with truth, and evil with right in voting for Dan. And to not vote when it is so easy or to vote for someone else who is going to insure that child sacrifice remains legal would seem like a pretty clear case of not doing what you know to be right (James 4:17)."
Russell Hunter continued to believe I was motivated by a desire to intentionally harm the Fisher campaign (never mind that I reposted a couple of Fisher's excellent OpEds this past fall). So I rebutted his claim;
"T. Russell Hunter, you hurt the campaign way before I responded to the post. I completely support your rightful process of forming a conviction about what is (or isn't) a sin FOR YOU!
Your great error is in deciding what is God's leading for everyone else, regarding an election.
You cannot know who or what the circumstances will be 5 months from now. Keep being passionate and keep defending the innocent. But don't harm the very effort you so dearly believe in."
Well, Turner then took the tact that somehow I was just being emotional and claiming victim-hood. So he completed the discourse with this finale';
David Van Risseghem I am sorry that you feel so hurt or convicted by my personal Facebook post. I unfriended you to make your wall a safer space.
