To the gentleman standing outside the post office with the “Abortion Is Satanic” sign:
You claim that God told you to stand outside a busy post office with that sign and I tend to doubt this. Why do I doubt this? Because the post office is not an abortion clinic and when I suggested to you nicely that you tone down your rhetoric, you attempted rudely to mansplain the issue to me.
Nope… I don’t have a pro-life story at all…
None at all…
Dude, I live the pro-life story on a daily basis with a kid who has been described by an ex-family member as “the Planned Parenthood poster child” (this person will be out of my life soon) and who was the deciding factor in me becoming pro-life. Yes, abortion is horrible and I pray for an end to it… but it isn’t as black and white as people on both sides make it out to be. I know people who have had them because it was their only option at the time, who were raped and become pregnant as a result, and have had conversations with them where they have shown me their very raw sadness because they know I will listen. When these women see signs like yours, their shame surfaces again and much of their healing is undone. Don’t do that to them.
Telling me that I am of Satan and that I need to read my Bible more does not indicate that you are right. It indicates that you are behaving like a rear sphincter opening and wouldn’t know the voice of God even if God was standing next to you screaming at you with a megaphone. God hates abortion, but God loves the woman who has one and yearns for their return to Him and to wholeness. Your actions undo all of that.
Hugs and kisses,
