while scanning through my twitter feed, i came across this ::
and they are serious. completely. read more here.
i’m outraged. indignant. and i imagine, in the coming days, the blogosphere will be saturated with outcries from the evangelical community bemoaning the insanity stemming from this article.
and rightfully so.
but here’s the thing ::
if our answer, as the Church, is to picket abortion clinics holding pictures of indecency; if our answer is found in merely voting for a ‘pro-life’ candidate in the upcoming election; if our answer is to simply to say how outraged and indignant we are, we have failed.
and we’re not helping.
if this ridiculous practice of ‘after-birth abortion’ were to become a reality – the local church’s reaction and responsibility is simple.
every child that would be considered for an after-birth abortion should be begged for by the church. we should wait at the hospitals and even demand that the child be given to us, to be cared for and loved and raised in an environment rich with opportunity for an abundant life.
and if we aren’t willing to do that, i don’t see how we consider ourselves having any credibility in the discussion. any other response just doesn’t make sense to me.
what do you think?
