Expert Witness Report


by Pastor Mark Downey

Scripture Reading: Acts 14:21-22

The following is a letter Pastor Mark wrote as an expert witness for a Christian Identity prison case up in Michigan.  They've been fighting it for years, and hopefully this will dissolve once and for all.  Those in Michigan should start making plans to attend the trial in August.

Dear Professor,

Let me thank you for allowing me to participate in this case as I've been pondering the ramifications, not just in the prison systems, but for pastors, authors and expositors of Christian Identity. There are adversaries who can obviously twist what we're about with impunity in a few prisons with the hopes that these political opinions transform into laws and then those laws are shown in courts to be applicable to people like myself, which would have an unprecedented prejudice against law abiding Identity Christians and perhaps trickle down to mainstream Christian churches. In fact, this strategy is already in motion and I'll discuss it when I get to the SPLC. This case is important because it is blatant discrimination and the perpetrators would love for there to be a domino effect to silence us forever.
