In Warren, Ohio, yesterday, we went to the streets to stand in solidarity with a group of people who formed a part of the nationwide Life Chain abortion protest. (Earlier in the day, I had given a pro-life talk at Holy Rosary Church in Vienna, Ohio. During the talk, I said it was imperative for pro-life people to go to the streets like this day in and day out in order to create a climate similar to what was created in the South to end Segregation.) Toward the end of the Life Chain event, I passed out campaign cards to some of those protesting. Some supporters of Ohio Republican Rob Portman, who is running for U.S. Senate, were passing out campaign literature as well. The woman who gave me the literature, said: “We have to take our country back.” I asked her exactly what that meant? She said, for instance, that there should be less taxes overall, and less taxes going to government social service safety net programs. It is, after all, the church’s responsibility to take care of the poor, she said. I responded that that, currently, would be kind of hard to trust — considering figures indicate Christians, for instance, currently average tithing only 3% of their income. Note: We have just moved across the border into Pennsylvania. An AP report out of Harrisburg PA noted that Pennsylvania is one of the “main sources” of guns used in crimes in other states. I also just read in Time Magazine that some 100,000 people are now killed, or injured, by guns in the U.S. every year. I mean, we lost some 5,000 American soldiers in Iraq over five years. Common sense would indicate America has turned into this major war zone, but we’re in tremendous denial about it.
