Action Alert!

the two-edged sword

By Diogenes (articles) | Oct 05, 2007

Great days for ecumenism: today we're all the spiritual beneficiaries of joint efforts for justice.

Remember the liberal Christians' rallying cry from the 1960s: "Practice unites, dogma divides"? Well those wonderful folks at the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice are helping enlist the voice of faith in support of the new abortion clinic in Aurora, Illinois:

Dear Planned Parenthood Friends, I am a person of faith, and I stand proudly next to you in support of opening the new Planned Parenthood clinic in Aurora. I believe women and families must be able to make reproductive health decisions according to their own religious beliefs and conscience and Planned Parenthood enables them to do that. The people trying to prevent the opening of the clinic are intent on the opposite -- imposing their beliefs on us all, no matter the harm they cause. Your programs and services are needed by women and families, and your cause is just. Please know I am with you.

Practice unites. Dogma divides.
