Bradlee Dean's Statement to the Press about Lawsuit
Statement of Bradlee Dean/Press Conference: July 27th, 2011
Good Morning. My name is Bradlee Dean and I am the founder of You Can Run But You Cannot Hide International, a Christian ministry whose mission it is to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to promote and further family values, particularly among current and future generations.
In recent years, ethics and morality in our society have seriously declined. This has resulted in the break up of families, increased crime, and other serious societal problems.
As a young boy, I experienced what it was like to grow up without a father to teach me these values, as my father was in prison for crimes he had committed. My mother was mostly absent from my brother and me, as she was more concerned with her boyfriends than she was with us. As a result, from the lack of familial supervision, I fell into a life of sin.
Fortunately by the grace of God I survived my youth and turned to Jesus Christ for guidance, redemption and salvation. While my profession as a preacher, and a heavy metal drummer, earned me a living, I have learned that my true reward in life is with the Lord. I found my life, where I gave it away for His cause.
For this reason, in 1999 I founded You Can Run But You Cannot Hide international, a non-profit ministry dedicated to spreading the Word of God and awakening the nation. In the course of my work at YCR, where I am joined by many, I have been fortunate to be invited to perform and speak in hundreds of schools around the country; 331 to be exact in over 22 states. I also have been fortunate to have a radio show called Sons of Liberty, which I also use to spread the Biblical and an American Constitutional message.
In the course of doing high school assemblies, I was shocked to learn that there were those that were offended at my message to teach our nation’s youth that homosexuality is not a preferred lifestyle. I do not dislike homosexuals, I seek their redemption, not their condemnation. But I have come to the position that I am not, and I cannot allow the gay lifestyle to be forced upon the nation’s youth through indoctrination. My objective, as it always has been, is to protect our nation’s values.
In teaching the nation’s youth about the risks of homosexuality, I would make reference to how the left wing media often furthers this regrettable lifestyle through its propaganda. As a result, I was frequently attacked by the left wing media for this.
In trying to further this mission, I once made reference to how even Muslims oppose homosexuality under Shariah law. I did not suggest that I condoned the methods that radical Muslims use to enforce Shariah law, but made this analogy to prod Christians to become more concerned about what was going on in our schools with the nation’s youth. In response, gay activist reporters and television political commentators, like Andy Birkey of the Minnesota Independent and Rachel Maddow of MSNBC, attacked me by making false accusations that I had called for the execution of homosexuals, “radical Muslim style.”
These attacks were not just intended to maliciously destroy my ministry and me for challenging so called “gay rights” activists, but also were intended to harm and destroy the presidential campaign of Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, who like myself share pro–family values.
Congresswoman Bachmann is also my representative from the 6th District of Minnesota, where I reside and where my ministry is based: that is Annandale, Minnesota. It is not coincidental that Congresswoman Bachmann previously praised and prayed for the work of my ministry. This was not lost on Rachel Maddow and MSNBC and other leftist and gay activists in the media.
The worst example to date of the slander of the left wing media towards my ministry and me has come from Rachael Maddow of MSNBC. On air she accused me, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, and others of being “blood thirsty” and “calling for the upping of the bloodshed of America’s culture war” since Christians weren’t doing enough to kill gays and lesbians. She also disparaged my name, my profession, and my religious beliefs, in an outrageous and shocking display of malicious intent to destroy me and Michele Bachmann. Maddow’s and MSNBC’s broadcast comments have been repeated throughout the media world and have done great damage to my reputation, my ministry, and my mission to reach out among the nation’s youth.
Regrettably, it should come as no surprise to anyone that MSNBC, which is owned by NBC Universal, should seek to denigrate my mission and belief in God. Just this year, NBC was rebuked by the American public for removing the name “God” from the Pledge of Allegiance, which it sponsored at the US Open Golf Tournament. The President of MSNBC, Phil Griffin, also admitted earlier this year that the network caters to “progressives”, meaning a generally secular, frequently atheist, pro “gay rights”, socialist and big government market among it’s viewers
It is clear that Rachael Maddow, Phil Griffin, NBC, and its subsidiary MSNBC intended to use my ministry and me to destroy the presidential campaign of Michele Bachmann who they despise for her conservative Christian beliefs and her opposition to the “gay rights” political agenda.
Today I had my attorney Larry Klayman file a lawsuit against Rachael Maddow, MSNBC and Andy Birkey of the Minnesota Independent. It is regrettable that I had to take this action, but I felt that it was necessary to protect not only my rights but also countless others who believe in family values for our nation’s youth.
