There’s a sleazy anti-abortion group calling itself “Live Action” that’s been caught more than once in deceptive and misleading edits of material released to questionable rightwing media outlets such as Fox News. Their tactics aren’t on the up-and-square, so no Orthodox Christian should have anything to do with them. Their videos are, charitably speaking, not what they appear to be. Of course, the rightwing eats it all up. Here’s some interesting material. I am NOT pro-choice… however, I REFUSE to use questionable tactics nor do I believe that those who do so are fit company for decent and Christian people. It speaks much about the konvertsy that they accept this rubbish uncritically. It speaks much about the Republican Party that it accepts such rubbish uncritically. NO, a thousand times NO. We should not have ANYTHING to do with liars and deceivers. Abby Johnson, I believe, is such. Have a care… there are truly gnarly people out there, and most of ’em look NICE. Do remember that “nice” and good are NOT synonyms.
NO… the Church is NOT allies with all who call themselves “Pro-Life”… I believe that and will state that to anyone, lay or clergy, it doesn’t matter. If you believe otherwise, you aren’t only my opponent, you’re against the “Mind of the Church” as well. We can NOT use deception for “good ends”… if we do so, the good transmutes into evil. Do think on that. It’s one thing to accept an evil situation (as did Patriarch Sergei Stagorodsky of Happy Memory)… it’s quite another to ally oneself openly with questionable elements (as did Jonas Paffhausen and his signature on the questionable “Manhattan Declaration”). After all, Patriarch Sergei had been in prison twice “for Christ’s sake”. I’d comment that none of the loudmouthed anti-abortion sorts have suffered likewise (certainly not Fatso). Have a care… the times are evil, and the rot is within the Church as well. “The foulest flowers of evil grow in the shadow of the altar…”
