Sample Reactions Pro and Con...
Con: "The absurdity of attacking allies for life because he/she/they are not 'perfectly' in lock step with your approach– is as helpful as participating in a circular firing squad… Go ahead vindictively target a president who is trying –albeit imperfectly – to help our cause... but you'll need to accomplish your incredibly ignorant activity with someone else's money, not mine." -Holly Coco [ellipsis hers]
CRTL Reply: Holly, thank you for writing. Would you consider reading the ad again? You will see that we did not attack President Trump. We told him the truth and respectfully urged him to do what is right. Donald Trump probably sleeps well each night, being affirmed by so many who profess Christ. Yet he needs to know that God will hold him accountable for each child he intentionally kills. Those who hide that from him, do they love him or are they using him? Hopefully, if he ever comes to understand this, he will open his heart to the Lord and to the little ones. The Apostle Paul asked: Have I become your enemy because I've told you the truth? Consider, Holly, the person unwilling to even warn a child killer yet who rebukes those who do warn him.
Con: Miranda Blue at Right Wing Watch displayed the three ISIS memes in our Washington Times ad and somehow concluded about us, "Personhood Group Compares Rival Anti-Choice Activists To ISIS". Stupid doesn't make you sin but sin makes you stupid. Miranda is either willfully ignorant or lying. Our memes compare regulating the killing of the innocent to the absurdity of trying to regulate ISIS. Yet somehow Blue and her RWW editors think that we are "comparing incrementalist anti-choice groups to ISIS." We have two questions. First, does Miranda Blue smoke pot? And secondly, would someone who advocates dismembering children hesitate to lie?
