The video below shows how shrewd the opposition is and how much we need to learn their lessons. The game is about power Darcy Burner, a candidate for Congress from Washington State, says, and I agree. She points out that power is built either by force or consent and claims that the right uses force and the left uses consent. That statement is laughable. One of her points of force is police/courts. So who has used that force most effectively? Abortion came about through force of the courts. Legalization of sodomy came about by force from the courts. We will get same sex marriage by force of the courts. And Obamacare is based on both political and economic force. The global warming offensive is using both economic force and political force to destroy the energy industry and the force of a biased media helps promote the left's evil agenda. The left, in fact, primarily uses force to achieve immoral ends.
Some of what Burner discusses the children of light are doing already. And, in fact, every pro-lifer who watches this video will be amazed by the segment where she talks about how you achieve "moral power " in protests. (It's near the end around 15:45.) The recipe? 1) protesters must be seen as innocent, 2) they must voluntarily put themselves in harm's way, 3) official force must be used against them, 4) the injustice must be widely communicated, and 5) it must shock the conscience.
As I watched her show examples: the civil rights movement, Tiananmen Square, Kent State, and Occupy Seattle, I thought -- the icon for the type of protest she describes is the rescue movement for unborn children. Also, think about the protest at Notre Dame where police were videotaped arresting an 80 year old priest, Fr. Norman Weslin, who has since died. On the moral front, pro-lifers are in the forefront of protest and have been ever since child-killing began eons ago. As for other human rights, Catholics have been fighting for 2000 years.
But we can learn something from our shrewd brothers and sisters working for the dark side, and this video gives some specific suggestions that are brilliant. For example, developing an app where you can check an item at the store and boycott items from businesses that support Planned Parenthood and her suggestions for building networks. We need to get smarter on that front.
I recommend watching this video and taking some of Burner's suggestions to fight for the truth. She urges women who've had abortion to come out of the closet to give choice a face. We're already doing that with the Silent No More campaign and movies like October Baby. But we need to pray to be smarter and to work harder than the children of night. Pray for Darcy Burner's conversion. She talks about the war on women, but the real war on women is abortion. If she wakes up to the truth what a victory for good that would be. We could use her intelligence and energy in the war against unborn women.
