  At about 1:05 pm, KCFL Volunteer, Jake Redcorn, called to report that Tiller's Security Guard, John Rayburn, had taken the Nativity Scene, which we had put on display at Tiller's gate, on public property this morning.

According to Jake, John Rayburn's reason for taking the display, was because "it was offensive to him".

At the time of his phone call to me, (Mark Gietzen), Jake was arguing with John Rayburn about getting the Nativity scene back. I advised Jake to stop talking to John Rayburn, and to simply await the arrival of Operation Rescue staff, Troy Newman and Cheryl Sullenger, and the Wichita Police.

Nativity Scene “Aborted” By Tiller Employee

Wichita, KS - Dec 14, 2006

An employee of late-term abortionist George R Tiller stole a nativity scene belonging to Operation Rescue that had been displayed among crosses and other religious items on the public property outside the abortion clinic gate.

The plastic Nativity Scene, consisting of likenesses of Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus, and a donkey were placed outside the notorious abortion clinic, as part of a national campaign called The Nativity Project.

The Nativity Project was launched by the Christian Defense Coalition and Faith and Action for the purpose of affirming the message of Christ’s Incarnation as well as the rights to free speech and religious expression. Participants are urged to maintain Nativity Scenes on public property from now until Christmas.
John Rayburn, an employee of Tiller’s who supplies security services for the abortionist, told witnesses that the display was “offensive” to him. He picked up the display and placed it behind the fence that surrounds the abortion clinic parking lot.

Operation Rescue President Troy Newman summoned the police and asked for the return of his property. After some investigation, Officer D. L. Hinners returned the property to Newman who replaced it back onto the public grassy strip.

A report was filed (case number 06C96619) requesting that the charge of petty larceny be filed against Rayburn for stealing the religious display. The District Attorney’s office will make a determination whether or not to pursue the charges.

Operation Rescue is offering free tickets to the movie “The Nativity” to the first 50 people who volunteer to watch over the Nativity display at Tiller’s abortion clinic between now and Christmas.
