View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

More pro-abortion violence

A 69-year old man was allegedly assaulted by two women on Saturday as he held two non-graphic signs protesting abortion.

This comes just about a week after Jim Pouillon was murdered for his pro-life views.

In the latest pro-abortion attack, Johnny Wallace was allegedly attacked by the two 48-year-old women in Flagstaff, Arizona. He was in front of City Hall holding text-only signs that read, "Abortion kills more black Americans in four days than the Klan killed in 150 years," and "Life begins at conception and ends at Planned Parenthood."

Wallace was allegedly approached from behind by the two women, who began by yelling profanities at him. One then attempted to take way and destroy his sign.

Wallace was wrestled to the ground, and then the other woman allegedly joined the attack.

Wallace was treated for minor injuries by paramedics.

The women were cited and released on misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and criminal damage.

Given the increasing pro-abortion violence, the 40 Days for Life campaign takes on an added edge. But we will not be bullied into hiding.
