Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Another Beautiful Day at the Death Mill

The following video, from my friend John Heuglin, describes some of the [even] weird[er than usual] goings-on outside the abortion clinic in Louisville this past Saturday morning. In this video, two men berate those standing on the sidewalk who are seeking to preach the gospel, pray, and persuade women to make a choice for life. As I was present that morning, three things strike me about John's video:

1. For the sake of not publishing a video just full of blasphemy and obscenity, the scenes that he shows of the two men are at some of their least animated moments, when they weren't cursing people out to the extent that actually occurred.

2. In telling of such an emotional situation, it is easy to exaggerate the events that transpire. John resists this temptation to the point of making the actions of the men in the video seem a bit less outrageous than they actually were. (Both men certainly threatened the street-preachers and sidewalk counselors with violence.)

3. This video once again helps expose the lie, consistently propagated by supporters of the abortion clinic, that those who are pro-life are the angry, violent people.

"An average of 70 children are murdered each *week* at the Abortion Clinic in Louisville, KY."
