The infamous anti-Mohammed cartoons from Denmark have been published online by the Christian Communications Network (CCN), a Washington, D.C.-based public relations firm run by Christian right activist and anti-abortion crusader Gary McCullough. McCullough distributed press releases calling for even wider publication of the inflammatory cartoons, including one caricature of Muhammad with a fuse-lit bomb tucked in his turban, and another of the prophet on a cloud in paradise, telling newly arrived suicide bombers, "Stop, Stop! We have run out of virgins!"
Islamic tradition forbids any depiction of the religion's holiest figure; such stereotypical, bigoted cartoons have sparked protests across the Muslim world.
McCullough stated in interviews that no one paid him to post the cartoons, and that he is not "speaking on behalf of the Christian faith. McCullough claims to be making a brave stance against terrorist violence and intimidation by Islamic fundamentalists. However, he has a history of condoning intimidation and violence -- including killing -- in the name of Christ.
In his press release dated February 5, 2006, McCullough stated: "If the world's press gives in to demands, backed by threats of violence, not to print a political cartoon today--what freedom will we give up tomorrow to keep the peace? It is imbecilic to believe that such a success in the use of violence and threats of violence does not encourage such behavior. By McCullough's own measure, then it is also reasonable to believe that his own outspoken defense of and fundraising efforts in support of individuals convicted for violent crimes in the name of Christ encourage more threats and violence.
McCullough recently rose to national prominence as a media consultant to the parents of Terri Schiavo, whose feeding tube removal begat a hurricane of hyperbole over a husband's right to carry out his wife's end-of-life choices without undue government interference.
Less well known is the fact that McCullough previously served as a publicist, apologist, and funding conduit for the unapologetically pro-violence wing of the anti-abortion movement. For example, he was the principal of Prisoners of Christ, a group that provided financial aid and other support for antiabortion activists who been convicted of crimes including murder, arson, bombings, and kidnapping.
In addition, McCullough served as a media advisor for Paul J. Hill's Defensive Action group, a network of anti-abortion zealots that got behind Michael Griffin, who murdered Dr. David Gunn at a Florida women's clinic in March 1993.
McCullough listed himself as "media consultant" on the declaration, printed on Defensive Action letterhead, which stated:
McCullough added, "In America we have failed to protect the preborn infants.
When confronted by Tom Burghardt of the Bay Area Coalition for Our Reproductive Rights during an interview with northern California NBC affiliate KNTV in 1995, McCullough stated, "Paul Hill is my friend.
McCullough founded the CCN in 1989 - the same year he went to work as a media consultant for the militant, underground Operation Rescue.
While condemning violence in the name of Islam, and claiming to care about American civil rights and civil liberties, McCullough and Terry have dedicated their careers to the demolition of American civil rights and civil liberties, not through satirical words or caricatures, but through words and deeds that seek to inspire and justify violence in the name of their own religion.
McCullough was the Schiavo parents' media consultant ? Well, Barbara Weller was their lawyer.
Bizzarely McCullough's "Christian Communications Network" ALSO features a recent press release from "International Christian Concern" which worries about attacks on Christians worldwide from the eruption of anger in the Islamic World over the Anti-Islamic cartoons that Gary McCullough has printed on his own CCN website ostensibly in defense - as McCullough and Terry write of - Freedom of speech !

A few dozen activists on a phone or a fax machine couldn't reach people who would care," said Gary McCullough, now editor of the Christian Wire Service, who sends as many as five news releases on the Schiavo case to 6,000 recipients every day.
"But now," he continued, "you have the Internet, blogging, Web sites, discussions groups, organizations like NewsMax and talk-show hosts like Sean Hannity whose producers don't have to be called by someone like me.

It is run by McCullough, the antiabortion activist, who had been the press agent for the antiabortion group Operation Rescue.McCullough, a former watch salesman who honed his publicity skills by doing jailhouse interviews during his Operation Rescue days, was the press agent for the parents of Terri Schiavo.
McCullough also published press releases purporting to cite medical expertise, such as one titled, "Terri Schiavo's Husband Fits Profile of Wife Abuser, Per Psychiatrist."
As a publicity outlet for Cameron, McCullough has published press releases in the past several weeks with headlines that include these: "Gays Twice as Apt to Drive Under the Influence, says Family Research Institute," "Gays 6X More Expensive Than Smokers, says Family Research Institute," and, "Weird Behavior Among Gays Due to Mental Illness?
McCullough, as a representative for groups ranging from the Christian Coalition to the National Right to Life Committee, touts his publicity apparatus as a crucial part of influencing national politics and policy."I'm like the liver or the kidney," McCullough said.
