Randall Terry at War With Operation Rescue

L.A. Neumann of Otherspoon reports on the simmering battle between Operation Rescue founder Randall Terry (whose most recent stunt was the disruption of a Virginia health-care town hall meeting) and Troy Newman, the current director Operation Rescue West.

When he was ousted in 1994 from the organization he founded, Terry lost control of the Operation Rescue name. Now he's locked in a legal battle to regain his right to use the name. (Terry calls his current organization "Operation Rescue Insurrecta Nex".)

From Otherspoon:

How bad is the rift? Terry calls Newman a weasel. Newman calls Terry a charlatan. Newman, in his vitriol, resorted to the c-word! When anti-choicers accuse others of being cultists, you know the war is on.

Could it be that they're both right?

To date, the attributes of nobody's mother have been invoked, and no one's dad has been called on to beat up anybody else's dad. But we'll keep you posted.
