Flames gushed from Wisconsin Family Action’s building Sunday after a Molotov cocktail was tossed into the window by pro-choice activists. But despite the opposition’s violent rhetoric, the pro-life non-profit is doubling down on its message of unity and faith.

Executive vice-president Micah Pearce appeared on “Fox & Friends First” Tuesday to offer a message to his group’s attackers.

“We’re doing really great,” Pearce told host Carley Shimkus, “To suffer for Christ’s sake doesn’t really feel like such a heavy burden. Early on, Dave – one of our staff members – reminded us… now’s a really good chance to remember to love your enemy and that’s the attitude we have.

“If there’s a message, it’s that we don’t hate you and we, as an organization, would love to talk about the issues and would never resort to violence,” he added.
