THE CMP VIDEOS REVEAL AS MUCH ABOUT THE CHURCH AS ABOUT PLANNED PARENTHOOD
“Does not everything depend on our interpretation of the silence around us?” ~ Lawrence Durrell
Such assumptions, it seems, were overly optimistic.
To be sure, there have been scattered accounts of awakening among Christian leaders and their congregations repenting of decades of culpable silence. But by and large, serious activity hasn't come from pastors and their flocks but, once again, only from seasoned sanctity-of-life advocates already passionately engaged in trying to resuscitate the moral sensibilities of a nation in the midst of upstaging the Nazis.
Just as when Kermit Gosnell's house of horrors went viral there was an initial flutter of shock and outrage, so it is again with the CMP videos. Initial indignation over the gruesome revelations has quickly faded and churches have lapsed back into “business as usual,” as if the much-publicized horrors never happened.
No one was really surprised to see again just how determined the mainstream media is to ignore the plight of the pre-born. But who would have thought the church would join in?
