Warned groups prepare for Operation Save America:
Nobody warned me. I’m driving to work this morning and I had stopped at Mickey D’s to get me a sausage McMuffin. So I’m riding along enjoying my breakfast and I see a bunch of people lined up on the street in front of another McD’s that’s a couple of miles down the road. I’m thinking, great PETA has finally come to Charlotte. When I saw who they really were it made me wish that it was PETA. It was Operation Save America, formerly known as Operation Rescue. They’re the anti-abortion nuts founded by Randall Terry who supported violence as an option to stop abortions. I’m trying to eat my breakfast and they’re thrusting pictures of aborted fetuses in front of my face at 8:00 in the morning. I happen to oppose abortion in most cases but these people make even me sick. Now I’m not here to argue the abortion debate today. Regardless of what your opinion on abortion is you have to admit that these people are nuts. It’s not just abortion either. They also have a problem with gays and Muslims. A quote from Rev. Flip Benham…
His belief is that homosexuality is a sin, Islam is a lie, and abortion is murder
Well isn’t that special. You know the Christ I was taught was a god of love and understanding. Not of hate, bigotry, and xenophobia. Luckily, for the most part, the city of Charlotte hasn’t fallen for their line. Not even Concord for that matter where OSA has made their new national HQ. A quote from a Concord resident…
“Standing outside churches, abortion clinics, Muslims places, I don’t approve of none of that,” said Concord resident John Scoop. “That’s not their place, God’s the one who judges them.”
From the same article Baptist Preacher Bradley Price…
“I’m just not real comfortable with the tactic,” said Bradley Price.
Some people say religion should be a personal decision, not a public outcry.
For his congregation, Price prefers to preach what is right rather than condemn what is wrong.
“This may be a super, over-simplification, but I feel like it’s a whole lot better to say two plus two equals four, than to say two plus one is not four, two plus three is not four,” said Price.
See not all Christians are abortion clinic bombing zealots. They were in Concord over the weekend condemning homosexuality. I’m guessing they were there because in April a Baptist church in Concord was kicked out of its local Baptists association for admitting a gay couple into their congregation.
OSA does not represent the ideals of all Christians. Speaking as a Christian to me they are a hate group along the same lines as the Klan.
