... CPCs have also been found to disseminate misinformation about birth control methods, in particular the idea that contraception and c*****s do not work or have harmful effects....

In contrast to the overt Christian perspective of most CPC networks, Birthright International has a stated philosophy of non-evangelism....A Jewish CPC organization, called In Shifra 's Arms, also exists....

-- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crisis_pregnancy_center

I think I'm very correct that God hates abortion. I think I'm very safe in making that assumption. You know one thing one doesn't have to make an assumption about? God states very clearly in the Bible-- He hates liars there is nowhere in the Bible, "The ends justify the means"!

Revelation 21:8 But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”---ESV

Mike, the CPC in New York City seems to be doing at the right way - - let's hope all CPC's follow that example.

Mark Thornton wrote:
National prohibition of alcohol (1920-33)—the “noble experiment”—was undertaken to reduce crime and corruption, solve social problems, reduce the tax burden created by prisons and poorhouses, and improve health and hygiene in America. The results of that experiment clearly indicate that it was a miserable failure on all counts. The evidence affirms sound economic theory, which predicts that prohibition of mutually beneficial exchanges is doomed to failure.

The lessons of Prohibition remain important today. They apply not only to the debate over the war on drugs but also to the mounting efforts to drastically reduce access to alcohol and tobacco and to such issues as censorship and bans on insider trading, abortion, and gambling.

excerpt from, http://tinyurl.com/7px4wz4 (Alcohol Prohibition Was a Failure)

http://tinyurl.com/7px4wz4 (Alcohol Prohibition Was a Failure).

So, prohibiting abortion except for saving the life of the mother will fail as well, since a large portion (probably the majority) of the population want it. Another Quixotic goal.

Yes, the English Dissenters are an interesting group, though some Christians certainly wouldn't want to be lumped in with some of them.

YIA, Dispensationalists have no problem in having strong doctrine. We folloiw:

The First Foundation: Consistent Literal Interpretation,
Premillennialism The Second Foundation.
Futurism: The Third Foundation,
Israel/Church Distinction: The 4th Foundation

We thus avoid serious error that Reformed Churches fall into, http://tinyurl.com/gmxgbsm (...Anti-Semitism in the Church).

I would suggest that people read The Huffington Post article and get the fact from the horse's mouth - - or the devil's however one might want to look at it.
J. Richard Cohen wrote:
FRC President Tony Perkins claims that pedophilia is a “homosexual problem” – even though the American Psychological Association has concluded that gay men are no more likely than straight men to molest children....

The FRC may not advocate violence, but its inflammatory rhetoric pours fuel on the fires of hate....

Perkins also doesn’t like Muslims....he claimed that the U.S. Constitution doesn’t protect their religious rights.

--http://tinyurl.com/yc6d8lt6 (What Is A Hate Group?)

I can't criticize Mr. Perkins on everything because I don't support queer marriages or http://tinyurl.com/gn4kqok (The Inadequacy of Islam),

I certainly don't like Mr. Perkins mixing religion and politics, however, as an example, and from a side unfriendly towards Islam, http://tinyurl.com/hl9j5qz ("Don't judge the Muslims that you know by Islam and don't judge Islam by the Muslims that you know.").

Looking at - The Alpha Course from which,
wrote:
The following article appeared in The Times, 11 May 1996, " WOMAN LEADS CHURCH BOYCOTT IN ROW OVER EVANGELICAL PIG-SNORTING"

A WOMAN has walked out of her church and is holding services in her living room, because she says she cannot bring herself to "snort like a pig and bark like a dog" on a Church of England course. Angie Golding, 50, claims she was denied confirmation unless she signed up for the Alpha course, which she says is a "brainwashing" exercise where participants speak in tongues, make animal noises and then fall over.

She has left the evangelical St Marks in Broadwater Down, Kent, with 14 members of the congregation and founded a church at home in Tunbridge Wells. She said: "I'll be a fool for the Lord any day, but I won't be a fool for man."

as you can see this happened 21 years ago, the Anglican Church has an ongoing list of heresies besides the present ones mentioned in the SA article.

A more recent article on the Alpha Course. What is Alpha Course?

In the main article referred to by SA there was another interesting article referenced, while churches fared better than many other organizations, they were having some difficulty with public opinion.
Kate Shellnutt wrote:
Gallup has also reported that public trust in clergy is on the decline. Pastors represented the most-trusted profession when the company began surveying Americans on career ethics; after three years of record-lows, clergy now rank 8th on the list. Their confidence rating has dropped from 61 percent in 1977 to 44 percent in 2016.

Professors, which outrank pastors, and journalists, which fall lower on the list, also saw ratings slide.

“For the fourth year in a row—in a nation where religion is an important part of life for three-fourths of the population—less than half of Americans think religious leaders have high ethical standards,” Gallup said. “Meanwhile, two groups of professionals linked to the bitter political battles of 2016—college teachers and journalists—are at or near their all-time lows, with views split along partisan lines.”

...Despite very early signs of success, including a decline in arrests for drunkenness and a reported 30 percent drop in alcohol consumption, those who wanted to keep drinking found ever-more inventive ways to do it....
...Prohibition was waning by the end of the 1920s. [ ] In addition, fundamentalist and nativist forces had gained more control over the temperance movement, alienating its more moderate members... [ ]
excerpt from http://www.history.com/topics/prohibition

These nativists never seem to be able to learn from the Bible!

Romans 8
7 because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so;
8 and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.---NASB

May I suggest closing the barn door after the horses are out , is very ineffective, and a new approach needs to be taken and not Christian shar'ia law. Read the whole article on Prohibition, please. : thumbsup:

I'm certainly not a foolish nativist.

See,
Birthright wrote:
Birthright takes a non-moralistic, non-judgmental approach toward helping women through their pregnancy dilemmas. Louise regretted the fact that some young unmarried mothers were belittled or ostracized by their relatives: "I can never see anything wrong with any of them." At Birthright, Louise recreated the supportive homelike environment they deserved. Moreover, Louise helped formulate a Charter, followed by all Birthright chapters worldwide, to define Birthright's services, to ensure that pregnant women receive the same considerate treatment at every Birthright chapter, and to help volunteers preserve Birthright's good reputation in the future.
--- http://birthright.org/en/discover-birthright

Unfortunately some crisis pregnancy centers do give Christianity a bad name, see the Wikipedia article, Crisis pregnancy center. I assume that the Lincoln and Omaha ones have a much higher standards then the ones mentioned in the Wikipedia. The New York one seems to have set a fine example also.

Ah, lbug, all one has to do is do a Google search of "Birthright International reputation" one will see that they aren't neo-nazis or liars. So I don't know what dark hole that Frank dug his information out of, but Birthright International has a very good reputation.

BDM wrote:
... As we wrap up this survey of incidents in the Scriptures which involved acts of civil disobedience, we must strongly affirm that the Scriptures do show that there is a proper time and situation when the believer is obligated to disobey the civil government. In each of these cases, two parties were involved, the government which mandated that an individual take a particular action, and the individual who chose to obey God rather than man.

However, there is an important difference between these situations and those confronting the believer in the abortion crisis. In the rescue scenario, we have a third party interfering and attempting to keep another individual from disobeying God's command.

Just throwing out laws is not going to help the situation any!

The Ridiculous Grace of Adoption
The above an interesting story, below an organization to check out.
http://tinyurl.com/zy5vda5 (Birthright International), so is this organization.

The Crisis Pregnancy Center in the story was obeying the law. Apparently it wasn't using any subterfuge. Something that Christians are not supposed to be doing.

Erin Durkin wrote:
“I can’t imagine it being criticized,” said executive director Virginia Gallo. “I don’t understand why more of the Council members are not on board with us.”

The Council sought to crack down on crisis pregnancy centers, which critics say mislead women into thinking they’re medical providers, by requiring them to post signs disclosing that they don’t provide medical services. Bridge to Life complies with that rule.

The group serves about 4,000 women a year with free pregnancy tests, donations of maternity and baby clothes and supplies, and referrals to housing and other services, Gallo said.

apparently even stolid Swedes can even get worked up

Minneapolis Star Tribune wrote:
Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau resigned abruptly Friday amid growing criticism from the public and the City Council following the fatal police shooting of Justine Damond.

The chief’s departure came at the request of Mayor Betsy Hodges, who promptly nominated Assistant Chief Medaria Arradondo, a 28-year veteran of the force, to replace Harteau. The move ended Harteau’s 4½-year run as the first woman and first openly gay person to head the department.

Michael Stafford wrote:
More than 39 years after Roe v. Wade, [2012] the pro-life movement has reached a nadir. Despite the fact that over half [less than half in 2017] the United States self-identifies as "pro-life," little tangible progress has been made in the fight against abortion.

This is due to both the pro-life movement's failure to be a consistent defender of human dignity across a broader range of issues and to its increasingly close association with the Republican Party.

The GOP is often described as America's pro-life political party. In reality, however, the GOP is not pro-life. At best, it's merely anti-abortion. At worst, it's simply misogynistic. Regardless, the Republican Party's concern for human dignity ends the moment someone is actually born. After that, it's the coldness and cruelty of Ayn Rand and social Darwinism, all the way down.

--http://tinyurl.com/bx4zbqd  (The politics of abortion: America does not have a pro-life party)

You would make a good prohibitionist and have as much success as the ones did after FDR got in. The modern anti-abortionist has much the same problem.

Adriel, let me first say, I'm no fan of Bill Gates, I think he's part of http://billmoyers.com/episode/the-deep-state-hiding-in-plain-sight/

However, be truthful about them, Ms. Gates doesn't personally support abortion, find any support in this statement found on their foundation site? http://tinyurl.com/ydfj7gpx (Family Planning--Strategy Overview). So, no she doesn't directly support abortion, now indirectly that's a different matter. http://tinyurl.com/hxyrbq5 (The Gates Foundation Plans To Give Birth Control To 120 Million Women Worldwide By 2020). She even works with Catholic organizations, which isn't all that surprising. Also the Gate's Foundation vaccination program and a few others are terrific ideas. But,

The Role of Infanticide and Abortion in Pagan Rome’s Decline

What should be in the included in the title which was covered in the article, was salubrious effect that Jews and Christians had on birthrates and containment of abortions and infanticide

As this author said,

David P. Gushee, PhD wrote:
Loyalty to Jesus requires abstaining not only from war but also from abortion, abandonment of infants (“exposure”), and direct infanticide. These were quite common practices in the Greco-Roman world, and had especially devastating effects on women and female children. Under Roman law, the father was granted the power to kill, abandon, or sell his child or to order any female in his household to abort, which involved primitive methods that often ended women’s lives or ruined their health. But for Christians, the child’s life too, was sacred, even in the womb and in infancy, as was the life of the woman carrying the child. For both Jews and Christians, abortion and infanticide were absolutely banned.

Melinda Gates is a practicing Catholic - - has always come out against abortion, to my knowledge, though has supported forms of contraception that the Romish Church hasn't. See http://tinyurl.com/ybj3q2ke (Melinda Gates says she is ‘optimistic’ Pope Francis will change teaching on contraception)

They did not like Trump's expanded Mexican City Rule however:

Sarah Boseley Health editor wrote:
The “global gag rule” imposed by Donald Trump, blocking US funds to any organisation involved in abortion advice and care overseas, could impact millions of women and girls, endangering their lives and those of their babies, Bill and Melinda Gates have warned.

The changes are expected to result in funding from the world’s biggest donor to family planning and women’s health programmes in the developing world being slashed. It could, Bill Gates told the Guardian, “create a void that even a foundation like ours can’t fill”.

---Trump's 'global gag rule' could endanger millions of women and children, ​Bill and Melinda Gates​ warn

True, Chris
