Mitch Hescox, the CEO of the Evangelical Environmental Network — a fine man who has shown vast patience with grumps like me — wrote the following reflection for Holy Week. I lifted the first couple of paragraphs and then provided a link to the original site. You’re a good man, Mitch.  It’s rare to have […]

Fringe thinkers blemish the pro-life movement – again

February 15, 2012

I can’t help but wonder: Are some pro-life advocates hermetically sealed in a ghettoized world of circular logic? They must be. It’s the only explanation. No one else would spoon-feed the opposition with ready-made quotes for their publicity brochures. Sweet-smiling pro-choice convention receptionists can now hand out pamphlets featuring pictures of frowning, stereotypical finger-waggers. Captions blare: “We’ve always said they don’t care about babies once they’re born. Now we know they’re not exactly charitable about fetuses.”

A Pro-Life, “Christian” organization gone rogue

October 1, 2011

I hear the echoing booms. The Family Research Council is hammering nails into the coffin of its own credibility – and, once again, it drags the rest of us into its grave. I’ll crawl out and obsequiously plead before my agnostic friends: “I’m sure the FRC is well-motivated … they care … they’re sincere … law-abiding … love dogs and cats … but (that inexorable “but”) … not all of us are like them.”

My friends are not stupid. They see the organization’s mockery of its proclaimed anti-abortion stance; they see how the FRC is not genuinely pro-life; they see through the chimeras and phantoms and figments and find no resemblance with the New Testament lifestyle. It’s evident: The FRC is a ventriloquist’s doll for the Far Right fringe, complete with a Bible tucked beneath its wooden arm (witness the clone like resemblance between its budget cutting proposals and the Republican Party’s, here and here). The ventriloquist preaches from Ayn Rand’s notes while neglecting the baby in the womb as well as the infant in the crib. They want nothing to do with our ilk if it means resembling the Family Research Council.

The Evangelical Environmental Network has launched a campaign alerting everyone that one in six babies are now born with high mercury blood levels. Tracey Bianchi, author of Green Mama, published by Zondervan, explains the dilemma and what we can do about it in this video. We’ll cull cyberspace in the future and feature a “Video of the Month.”
