Ecumenical Clergy Members ‘Bless’ New Planned Parenthood Facility in Nation’s Capital

WASHINGTON — Over 20 clergy members representing Judaism, Hinduism and Islam, as well as those professing Christianity, gathered on Tuesday to seek a “blessing” over a new Planned Parenthood facility that opened last fall in the nation’s capital.
“In almost every message to our staff, I talk about our doing sacred work,” Laura Meyers, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, told DCist. “This confirms the sacredness of the work we do.”
“Now I can tell patients that this is a blessed space,” also remarked Serina Floyd, the medical director at the facility, located next to Two Rivers Charter School.
According to reports, the event was organized by the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (RCRC) and Christine and Dennis Wiley, who lead Covenant Baptist United Church of Christ in Washington, D.C.
“Many people do not understand that there are many kinds of Christians,” Christine Wiley asserted to the Huffington Post. 
“Conservative Christians dominate the television and radio media and influence people to think that this brand of Christianity ‘is’ Christianity. Although they have great influence, this stance is far from representing the true tenets of the person of Jesus Christ.”
