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.

Don't participate in the abortion industry

We may not be directly involved in the abortion industry ourselves. We may not work for Planned Parenthood, or in an abortion clinic, or for a doctor who provides abortions (if we do, quit!).

But there are other job-related ways we help that industry and its providers to continue to do their dirty work.

We supply them, service them, provide for them.

We mow their lawns; plow their parking lots; sell them copy paper; fill their vending machines; rent them space; clean their offices; repair their plumbing; print their literature; deliver them pizza; bake them cakes for celebrations; and do so many other things that allow them to continue.

And they pay us: With blood money.

So, refuse to do business with them. Tell them why. Tell others not to do business with them.

I know I would not like to be paid in blood money.
