Randall Terry (b. 1959) is a right wing hack of a religious leader who thrives on attention, bashing liberals, and of course mocking, minimizing, or even gloating in the murder of doctors whom he finds to be "moral reprobates." He is the founder of Operation Rescue, a group devoted to "protecting the innocents."
Terry seems to be against anything that is opposed to fundamentalist Christianity, probably because that religion is the only way he can make himself feel important. Specifically, he opposes gays' rights to basic safety (much less gay marriage), women's rights to privacy in making decisions about their reproductive health, or husbands' rights to terminate the life of a brain dead spouse.
He has run both for the U.S. House of Representatives (in New York) and the Senate (in Florida), before realizing that even Republicans find his language repulsive. In 2011, he changed his party affiliation to Democrat, with the intention to troll them by running against President Obama in the 2012 presidential primaries.
In March of 2009, Terry decided to go to Notre Dame to protest Obama's being invited to give the commencement address. To the delight of all attending the graduation, he flew a plane with a trailer showing a picture of an aborted fetus.
 Family life
Like many who scream about "family values," Terry's life seems not to live up to the standards by which he judges others. The Internet is abuzz with both gossip and verifiable facts about Terry's family.
- Terry's adopted son is gay, and came out in "Out Magazine" 2004  when Terry was on one of his gay bashing tirades, protesting marriage in Vermont. Terry promptly and publicly disowned him. 
- Terry has been married twice. His first marriage lasted 17 years. His second marriage, in 2000, was to a then 25-year-old woman 17 years Terry's junior. In doing this he revealed himself for a hypocrite after the fashion of many other contemporary right-wingers, because he had previously said of liberal marriages: "Families are destroyed as a father vents his mid life crisis by abandoning his wife for a 'younger, prettier model.'
- Two of Terry's children by adoption became pregnant outside of wedlock. Both were thrown out of the house when they became pregnant, with no help from pro-life daddy to support them.

“”I want you to just let a wave of intolerance wash over you. I want you to let a wave of hatred wash over you. Yes, hate is good... Our goal is a Christian nation. We have a biblical duty, we are called on by God to conquer this country. We don't want equal time. We don't want pluralism.
|—The News Sentinel, (Fort Wayne, Indiana), August 16, 1993.|
“”What this is coming down to is who runs the country. It's us against them. It's the good guys versus the bad guys. It's the God-fearing people against the pagans, and some of the pagans are going to church.
|—Speech in Jackson, Mississippi, April 1992|
“”The next step, if at all humanly possible (and in 90% of the cases it is), it is to get our children out of the humanistic, brianwashing institution called `public education.' Frankly, it is a mixture of insanity and irresponsibility to turn our children over to our adversaries and their curriculum in a God-less education system (i.e., a system that teaches history and science without God).
|—Why Does a Nice Guy Like Me Keep Getting Thrown in Jail? (1993)|
“”America is under the judgment of God. And if we are ever going to rebuild this country, it must be under God's law. Our goal must be simple: We must have a Christian nation built on God's law, on the Ten Commandments. No apologies.
|—Speech to "Cities of Refuge" campaign, Willoughby Hills, Ohio, July, 1993.|
“”When I, or people like me, are running the country, you'd better flee, because we will find you, we will try you, and we'll execute you. I mean every word of it. I will make it part of my mission to see to it that they are tried and executed.
