Now the secret is out: The Church teaches that both abortion AND the death penalty are immoral:
If the battle is to be joined on the life issues, now is the time. Newly-elected public officials ought to take notice that the Church is working to educate its own members, giving witness so that all will know, and acting in order to achieve genuine change. This is a genuine first step, especially considering the willingness of the Chronicle to play the action on page one. Good work all around.
I also note that congregations of other denominations aided in the prayer vigil. All it takes is leadership and initiative--they will come to the cause.
