A little more about Katherine Hancock Ragsdale…she doesn’t just kill children. She’s also trying to cram her ungodly lifestyle down our throats.
From the Boston Globe: “It really does help from taking your own press too seriously,” said the Arlington resident. She preaches the word of God while simultaneously plunging into the affairs of the world, blending the two and often drawing both praise and criticism at the same time.
When she appeared before Congress, Ragsdale was head of the national Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice. Today, the 50-year-old has a different job, as executive director of Somerville-based Political Research Associates, a liberal think tank that monitors the intellectual and religious right. She’s still at St. David’s, where she’s been vicar 14 years.
Political Research Associates is an affiliate of:
- Causes in Common, an LGB&T Community
- Building Equality, based on hate-crimes against LGB&T’s
- Talk to Action, which comes against the religious right
- Open the Government, wanting a more ‘transparent’ government.
This is what the White House says about transparency: “My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government.” Incredibly, it all has to do with the intellectual and religious right and keeping tabs on them. Kind of like what Napolitano is doing with the Department of Homeland Security.
Katherine Hancock Ragsdale’s other projects will, quote, “Investigate anti-Semitic and anti-Muslim sentiment on college campuses, and whether some religious conservatives might be trying to take advantage of disagreements within mainline churches – for example, over gay rights – to limit those churches’ effectiveness, encouraging them to fight among themselves rather than against the religious right.”
Katherine Ragsdale sees a bit of Genesis in her work for gay rights; more than just a personal concern, she said, the issue recognizes “the glorious diversity and wonder of God’s creation.” When you put LGB&T’s in the church as Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, or Teacher – you have just taken Jesus out. That is exactly what the current administration and other liberals want. Read on:
The Globe, cont: “I guess I find Dr. Ragsdale all about appearances and not at all about substance,” Helen Alvaré, associate professor at George Mason University School of Law in Virginia, said in an e-mail. “Her method of promoting legal abortion is to appear at ease and friendly, and to say things like ‘We do babies good’ (referring to her church’s affection for babies). . . . I think ultrasound and genetic sciences have progressed too far for her method of discussion of abortion to be considered ‘reasonable.’ ” Ragsdale argued that minors would be too intimidated by the courts but that she could support requiring another adult, trusted by the child, to approve any abortion. Despite their objection to abortion, conservative bishops, concerned about minors seeking unsafe, illegal abortions, agreed.
Hence, her testimony to the Senate Committee on June 3, 2004. Essentially, her testimony read that she ‘helped’ a minor get an abortion and paid for her meds. Read that here.
She’s a liar and a charlatan and delusional and definitely not a woman of God.
