Family Watches in Horror as FBI Raids Home of Pro-Life Christian

The FBI used a major show of force to arrest pro-life Christian Mark Houck, 48, with dozens of agents reportedly descending on his home with guns drawn as Houck's wife and children looked on in horror.

Early Friday morning the FBI arrived at the Houck's residence in Bucks County, PA and began pounding on the door. Despite putting his hands up and willingly cooperating, multiple agents pointed guns in Mark's face as his family—including his seven children—were forced to watch their dad "shackled" and taken away, according to family representative Brian Middleton, who spoke with CBN's Faithwire.

Houck's wife Ryan-Marie described the shocking scene to LifeSiteNews, saying her husband was pleading with agents. "'Please, I'm going to open the door, but, please, my children are in the home. I have seven babies in the house.' But they just kept pounding and screaming." She added that they "had big, huge rifles pointed at Mark and pointed at me and kind of pointed throughout the house."

Dr. Alveda King's Urgent Message for Christians

On Sept. 1 President Joe Biden took the stage in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and called MAGA Americans a "threat to democracy." He emboldened Americans to join him in defending democracy against the millions of people who support President Donald Trump.

After listening to his harsh and divisive remarks I wondered, why speak in such inflammatory terms?

I believe Biden is worried about the potential threat Democrats face if they lose their power in the midterm elections. Now he is trying to grasp onto anything he can by sparking fear into the American people. If Republicans take over the government in the elections, it's a direct threat to the Biden Administration's plans.

Speaking to youth and young adults gathered at Vinelife Church—formerly the Boulder Vineyard and the birthplace of PK—during TheStandard Youth Conference 2022 Colorado, leaders challenged students to pray for a move of God as big as those before it.
