average JoeOhio Tour cont: We traveled to Westerville, Ohio, where we were introduced to the congregation at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church. During his talk, Deacon Tom Barford said we can get so caught up in our leisure and prejudicial thinking that we miss living out the gospel message day to day. For instance, our prejudice toward the poor keeps us thinking in terms of “hand out,” when we should be thinking: “hand up,” said Deacon Barford. And to extrapolate this out, it is poverty that sometimes leads to abortion. So as an example, some well off, suburban pro-Life people who are tight with their money when it comes to social justice — could well be contributing (by ommission) to inner city abortions. Note: I recently read in the Cleveland Plain Dealer newspaper that leading child advocate Marian Writght Elderman said there is a “cradle to prison pipeline,” especially for Blacks growing up in the inner city. And, again, by our social justice ‘ommission,’ many are responsible. Several years ago, our family intentionally moved into the heart of Cleveland to impact some of this ‘pipeline.’ And we have just put up on this site one way we’re trying to do that.
