No Cause is Served by Emotional Manipulation

Which is why this anti-abortion sign is so completely wrong.  It tries to play on the emotions of those who remember 9/11 and tie those emotions to abortion.  It’s manipulation, and no cause is served by manipulation.  Indeed, emotional manipulation is a sign that one thinks very lowly of the merits of one’s cause and so one must stoop to trickery.  More people really need to adopt as their own motto Paul’s

… but [we] have renounced all shameful secrecy. It is not our way to be devious, or to falsify the word of God; instead, in God’s sight we commend ourselves to every human being with a conscience by showing the truth openly. (2Co 4:2 NJB).

It’s time to treat the subject of abortion honestly and from a theological perspective and not from a manipulative emotional one.

    Also, nothing is gained by misspelling “heroes.”
