Gary McCullough has developed a business as the go-to Christian Right PR man in DC. His client list is a Who’s Who of Christian Right groups around the U.S.:  Focus on the Family; Concerned Women for America; Christian Coalition; D. James Kennedy’s Coral Ridge Ministries, and so on.

Of course, none of these organizations are necessarily responsible for the actions of the man they contract press work to. On the other hand, McCullough has been an apologist for domestic terrorism for many years, and featured his support for incarcerated terrorists on his web site.

Less well known is that he was once the PR man for Paul Hill, the Florida antiabortion activist who claimed the murder of abortion providers was “justifiable homicide.”  Eventually, he practiced what he preached, and died in Florida’s electric chair for his crime.
For years, McCullough also operated a support fund out of his DC-based PR firm, called Prisoners of Christ. POC raised funds for people incarcerated for major anti-abortion crimes, suchas murder, attempted murder, arson, bombings and kidnapping. Many of these were known members of the Army of God.

I wrote about Prisoners of Christ, McCullough, and the Army of God, a few years ago in a story on

Today, over at Talk to Action, Jonathan Hutson reveals that McCullough has now posted on his web site, the infamous anti-Mohammed cartoons that have caused such an uproar around the world. McCullough also calls for widespread publication of the inflammatory cartoons. Hutson also notes that the onetime PR man for Christian antiabortion terrorism, denounces Islamic inspired violence.

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.

Much more.
