Turn the Other Cheek; Then Press Charges....


"Blessed are the peacemakers,
    For they shall be called sons of God. 

 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
    For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
"
Matthew 5:9-10

Abby Johnson posts the following warning on her Facebook page:
I just wanted to post something in preparation for tomorrow. I have had a couple of legitimately concerned abortion clinic workers (from Austin clinics) contact me to let me know what is being planned for tomorrow. Both Planned Parenthood and NARAL are no longer encouraging their supporters to be civil and courteous. These workers are telling me that many are planning on getting arrested and being aggressive with prolifers (including physical contact because they don't think we will press charges).

I am writing this to you guys because I used to be one of the abortion supporters. They are very angry, hurting people. At this time, they feel like they have nothing to lose. I am not posting this to frighten any of you...rather, I am posting this so you are aware of what we are dealing with. AND, I want all of you to go in armed with the power of prayer.

I am not bringing my children with me tomorrow. I do not want them to be a part of the spectacle that will take place.

Tomorrow is NOT the time to engage with any of them. Also, do not be reactive. If one of them starting spouting off to you, immediately turn and walk away. They will be looking to get into trouble tomorrow. Let's make sure they don't find any trouble with us.

St. Michael, pray for us.
 Don't look for trouble.  If trouble finds you, lovingly advance justice.  God will take care of the rest.

  1. Good advice! The other side is desperate to get a break in the actually class act the pro-life movement has put on in Austin, where the only ones clearly riding the crazy train are the pro-abortion folks. We've always known this to be true, but it has never been as obvious to the vast middle opinion as it has been in Austin. Keep it up!
    (I like to joke that I have to turn the other cheek because it's part of the natural motion of drawing from my shoulder holster ;) But that IS a joke. )
