If you watched the Republican Debates Tuesday you caught Rudy Giuliani again weaseling his way through his lame argument for supporting baby killing. But this time his alibi got knocked off the air by a couple of well timed and well placed lightning strikes.
Come on, Rudy
Even Rudy looked unnerved as his fellow Republicans jokingly moved away from him and Rudy pointing skyward indicated that Someone Up There wasn’t buying his limp explanation. He said for a Catholic boy this was serious.
While it may all have all been in good fun, there is something to say for the timing and the symbolism of having Mother Nature herself censoring such a travesty as Giuliani’s pro-abortion argument. While the audience roared with laughter at Rudy’s feigned fear, there was something genuinely sobering about the moment.
Giuliani was answering sharp criticism from New Hampshire Bishop Thomas Tobin who had publicly condemned Guliani for his abortion support. Tobin compared Giuliani to Pontius Pilate.
Truth Day Report
Wednesday’s Truth Tour in the North Suburbs was a success even though only two-dozen stalwarts showed up for it. Evanston seemed tame compared to the last few years, and police cooperation was exceptional. In Skokie and Lincolnwood all went well, and the police were friendly.
While there were the usual sad sacks ranting about the pictures, there were also many thumbs up, victory signs God bless you’s and one man who seemed overjoyed to see us out there and insisted that not only was this the right thing to do, but that we should be out there every day. Nice idea, but a bit time-consuming. He didn’t volunteer to be out there with us.
A House Divided in Pittsburgh
Another pro-life activist who takes the signs out to educate the public is Bob Newman of Pittsburgh, PA. Bob is out more than we are, and has made showing the graphic photographs of aborted babies a full-time occupation, so he runs into more resistance that we do. Here’s a list of some roadblocks he has run into recently:
Bob says that if the Catholic church in Pittsburgh won’t help him, then please, just leave him alone. And you think you have it tough where your are. Our hat is off to long suffering Bob Newman.
