Letter from Sharyn Kopf

To the zygote turned gamete who wrote the abortion article: Perhaps you should have subtitled it, “Aw, why can’t we all just get along?”

Since there seems to be an aversion to using scripture to support these dubious shades of gray—choosing, rather, to demote Psalm 139 to the status of “beautiful,” as if it’s merely poetry to be enjoyed or passed over at whim— allow me.

Actually, the Son of God has a way with words, so I’ll let him: “Blessed are you when men hate you, and ostracize you, and cast insults at you, and spurn your name as evil, for the sake of the Son of Man.” Luke 6:22

What? No compromising? No—I’ll use your words—weakening our beliefs in order to “de-dogmatize the debate”? Golly, it almost sounds like he expects us to stand our ground and, as a result, be hated outcasts! Oh, wait … he does: “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

Notice the choice of words: “when men hate you,” “you will have trouble.” Do me a favor and read Hebrews 11—specifically verses 32-38—then tell me again how we should be weak-minded wimps who wander about “recognizing shades of gray,” and kowtowing to anti-God, anti-life claptrap.

If we’re not making “this world” angry by speaking out against sin and, in this instance, the mass extermination of human life, we’re doing something wrong.
