My plan on the morning of the march, 21 May 2011, was to leave home one hour and fifteen minutes before the start of the events surrounding the march. The reason for leaving so long before the time is that "they" are still working on the N1 highway between Pretoria and Johannesburg, and if anything goes wrong on that highway, we would have to sit in traffic for a long time!
It just so happens that they had lane closures on the N1 and we did get to sit in very slow traffic for just over 2Kms. That doesn't sound so bad, but the fact is that it almost made us late for the 10:00 start! Well, God saw it fit to get us to Hyde Park Shopping Centre with about 5 minutes to spare! I had decided to take my camera along and play cameraman.
When we arrived there, there were only about 30-40 people there. I had such high hopes for this march. It was an opportunity for Christians and concerned citizens to stand up for what is right! What we do and stand for today, has an effect on the world that our children will one day inherit from us! The question is: What kind of a world are you fighting for them to inherit? A no-care attitude today will ensure a disastrous future-world for our children tomorrow! I was hoping for a couple of thousand people to march today, or at least 1,000. It was not to be! The final tally of marchers only came to between 80-100! After the march I gave ACA a call in Cape Town, as they were doing a march to the Cape Town offices of e-TV at the same time, to find out how many marchers participated there, and they had around 150! This is such a shame, especially if the fact that 75% of South Africans claim to be Christian is taken into account! Christians that want to sit on their deriers and have a good time, I am sure, but not Christians who would rise in society as the salt of the earth!
There has been a call from Christians nationwide, spearheaded by the Family Policy Institute (FPI) and Africa Christian Action (ACA), to switch off e-TV and not to watch this channel that is adamant in its deviant pursuing of pornography to air on its channel. The latest is that e-TV has now added The Naked News to its late night viewing, in which naked women read the "news."
After calls and emails, e-TV stubbornly decided to continue its current programming, with possibly even worse things to come in the future. It is with this response from e-TV that there is a national call for a march this coming Saturday, 21 May 2011, to the e-TV studios in Cape Town and Johannesburg.
The March Against Pornography will kick of at 10:00 in both Cape Town and Johannesburg.
In Johannesburg the march will start from the Hyde Park Shopping Centre to the e-TV studios. For more information about the Johannesburg march, contact Pearl Kupe at 083 305 9622 or by emailinng her at

Don't sit back and let others fight the battle against darkness for you. Every Christian is in a battle against evil, and this is one way we can use to let our lights shine for the kingdom and gospel of Jesus Christ!
Don't participate in the fruitless works of darkness, but instead, expose them.
On 29 January 2011, BCN hosted a Lifechain in Boksburg, South Africa, on the corner of Rondebult & NorthRand Rd (GPS: 26°10'43.63"S 28°14'36.99"E). There were at least 54 protesters in attendance. We started at 09:00 and it lasted until 12:00.
While standing there many people made comments from their cars as they slowly drove by, yet I perceived only one comment to be negative. Why do I use the word 'perceive?' Well, there was only one comment that was shouted from a car as they sped past that I simply could not make out what they were shouting.
Back in 1997, on 1 February, abortion on demand became the entrenched law in South Africa. To see the number of abortions that have been done since then, and how many are being performed at the moment, visit "Abortions since January in South Africa."
Because of this, we at BCN have been having LifeChains (peaceful, anti-abortion protests) for many years. Following are the details for our next LifeChain:
Please, if you are from Gauteng, could you make the time to join us as we stand in solidarity with all those that have been sacrificed on the altar of convenience! We cannot, we may not, turn a blind eye to the murder that happens daily in our country!
BCN is planning a Life Chain in Centurion on the 6th of November 2010.

Please join us against the Abortion Holocaust:
Since 1 February 1997, over 1 000 000 babies have been legally killed through abortion in South Africa. “Abortion takes away the most basic right of the most innocent people – the Right to Life of pre-born babies. It is discrimination based on age. It is an urgent priority for the Church to expose, oppose, and end this war against children made in the image of God.
