A Really Crass "Religious" Coalition
There's one sentence in the press release that pretty well highlights the RCRC's central failure to propound essentially Christian belief rather than growing-stale secular opinion. Here is what the Reverend Carlton W. Veazey, president and CEO of the RCRC, claimed:
...the continuous political attacks on abortion have obscured the single most important concern for the woman with an unwelcome pregnancy: making a decision that is right for her and her family.Shouldn't it instead be the case that in distinctively Christian reckoning, the single most important concern ought to be making a decision that is right with God?
Totally depraved as we are, there is no end to the ways we can rationalize and justify doing things that supposedly are "right for us," but are instead both harmful to us and others and an affront against the moral will of God.
God wants what is right for us and our families, and what is right cannot be the killing of unborn babies created in God's image.
There is no excuse for Presbyterian entities--Presbyterians Affirming Reproductive Options, Women's Ministries, and the Washington Office--continuing to financially support and lend our once-good name to a crassly political, morally bankrupt, abortion-at-any-cost outfit like the RCRC.
