I’m not making any political statements here, it’s just that I came across an article that I thought made some interesting points, and I wanted to share them here in case people were interested. The article is called:
Here’s a couple interesting quotes:
“The so-called evangelical leadership — Dobson, Robertson et al. also played the pro-life community for suckers. While thousands of men and women in the crisis pregnancy movement gave of themselves to help women and babies, their evangelical “leaders” did little more than cash in on fundraising opportunities and represent themselves as power-brokers to the craven politicians willing to kowtow to them.”
“Regardless of the official position of the Supreme Court on abortion, a country in which all Americans are offered some sort of dignity and hopeful future would be a place conducive to the kind of optimism each of us must hold in our hearts if we are to welcome children into this world. But if our highest aspiration is to be a consumer with no thought or care for our neighbor, we will remain a culture in which abortion is not only inevitable but logical.”
“The real solution to abortion is to change the heart of America, not the law. We need to stop seeing ourselves as consumers. We need to stop seeing ourselves as me and begin to think of we. Our country needs someone to show us a better way…”
…and I think that regardless of who any of us may end up voting for in this year’s election, we can probably all agree that we need to find “a better way.”
Again, I am NOT saying that I am supporting Obama, I just merely thought this article brought up some interesting points that are worth thinking through regardless of where you land party-wise.
