Gettin’ all Westboro in Prolife Activism?

We are an Evangelical Christian ministry dedicated to the preservation of LIFE from fertilization to natural death, you know, like I have to defend that. But we do, to other anti-abortion groups. So, to summarize: We believe that the public sidewalk in front of the abortion facility [and Statehouse, and Whitehouse, and City Hall, etc.] to be exactly that, PUBLIC, that anyone can come. Even though we are peaceful, even though we pose no threat, we cannot escape baby killing pussy hat wearing loonies telling us how wrong we are OR anti-abortion ‘abolitionists’ protesting prolifers telling us how wrong we are. Oh, the irony. But they do have one thing in common: Both are CULTS that serve another god, another gospel. 

Instead of standing on the same common sidewalk to do an uncommon thing, this tactical Westboro-like teams of people would rather insult and belittle others for not being like-minded – do it my way or no way. They must have a different Bible than I do.

These criticizers are Calvinists, not Evangelical Christians. They bully Catholics and other Evangelicals rather than  look back at their own man-made false religion.They are not evangelists because they are not Evangelical. Are these abolitionists really any different than baby killing pussy hat wearing loonies? Both groups ridicule and criticize, both have taken the position of condemnation and finger-pointing. We’re trying to save lives, they are trying to be RIGHT.

“For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12

One of our personal irritations of this stupidity is that we feel we have to identify as either prolife OR abolitionist OR anti-abortion. Yes sir, there IS a difference to them, but to us we identify as all three, and you should too:

  • Prolife isn’t just about protecting unborn life no one else cares about – it’s also about how we treat other people that no one else cares about. GET A CLUE. Prolife is about how we LOVE.
  • Abolitionism is a fine thing to be, a very gracious kind of ministry. But be careful not to make it out to be divisive and tactical. Social engineering has a way of perverting a very good thing.
  • Anti-Abortion is what we ultimately are. Ending unborn baby killing is what we are in the fight for, in jail for, on the street for, and in the Statehouse for.

In the interim, we fight. We pray. We preach. Do not turn to the right or the left; remove your foot from evil,” [Proverbs 4:27].

So, why don’t we all get along? Self righteousness. Stupidity. Instead, just follow what God leads you to do rather then trying to fit in with a group. We are who we associate with.

EXPOSING THE ABORTION AGENDA FROM THE PULPIT, ON THE SIDEWALK, THE MEDIA & IN THE STATEHOUSE: “Once I realized that my abortion was a tragedy and not an accomplishment, I was able to discern correctly that abortion is, indeed, MURDER.” ~ Rev. Katherine, post-abortive minister, counselor, AMERICAN.

Being a Public Prolifer in a Proabort Society

So you’re a prolifer…GREAT! But are you a ‘public’ prolifer?

Way more often than I’d care to admit I see prolifers say and do the dumbest things. To be fair, there are many of us categorized in different ways, but that should never give any of us the ‘power’ or freedom to do things in the public eye that can immediately destroy what the rest of us do.

KEEPLIFELEGALThe public and proaborts sees prolifers as ‘religious’. That’s not necessarily a bad thing unless you’re doing bad things that are not what is perceived as ‘religious’ or sanctified. An example is publically saying it’s okay to party. Now, you may not have actually SAID it’s okay to party, but when you post photos of a frosty beer or glass of wine in your hand, then you have publically said that you party. In other words, people – proaborts and the religious alike – will remember that beer or wine way longer than the babies you saved from abortion. You lose your pubic witness instantly.

So why go that road? Do you call your public prolife life a ministry?

However, what I do find interesting is how a public prolifer will instantly defend their actions with their religion or affiliation. Don’t do that. Please. Defending sin is, at the very least, irrational and makes the rest of us appear to be the same.KEEPLIFELEGAL

To be clear, this is not just about beer and wine. This is also about being in polite society at the gates of hell on a public sidewalk. Are you being the minister you say you are? Do you love your neighbor with boldness as Christ did? When we do this with love and not vanity, we can move mountains and plant good seed on fertile ground! The proabort and general public should see you as a stalwart life defender, and if you attribute what you do to your chosen religion or relationship, then think before you ‘do’. It’s your reputation, how do you want to be known?

Let’s be honest, this isn’t just about what the public sees about you as a prolifer, it’s also other prolifers, groups, and ministries that watch what we all do. Yes, everyone is a critic, but doing what Christ has called you to do is the only ordination you need. As life defenders and Christians, we should always strive to be above the black eye the enemy can publically give us. Most of us looks up to and respects ministers, pastors, and priests, so imagine seeing them on the news or in a friends FB feed as partying the night before.

And as always, I let the Bible speak for me. As public prolifers, consider 1Thessalonians 5:12-22 to help all of us understand who we are in public prolife ministry:

  • v12: recognize those who labor among you, and are over you in the Lord and encourage you
  • v13: and to esteem those who labor very highly in love for their work’s sake, be at peace among yourselves
  • v14: warn those who are unruly, comfort the fainthearted, uphold the weak, be patient with all
  • v15: see that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what tis good both for yourselves and for all
  • v16: rejoice always
  • v17: pray without ceasing
  • v18: in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you
  • v19: do not quench the Spirit
  • v20: do not despise the prophecies
  • v21: test all things; hold fast what is good
  • v22: abstain from every form of evil.

As public prolifers, we do unpublic things;  we do suffer, we have little in the world, we have much in our hearts, we encourage:

“And we labor, working with our own hands. Being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we endure; being defamed, we entreat*. We have been made as the filth of the world, the offscouring of all things until now.” [1Cor 4:12-13]
