Chris at Maine Catholic writes about how not to advance the pro-life cause:
Anyhow, since that fundraiser in May 2002, our parish has been picketed by an anti-abortion extremist and his cronies every Sunday morning between the 9:00 Children's Mass and the 11:00 Mass. He and usually two or three others are standing on the street just outside the main entrance of the church, displaying 6 foot X 4 foot photographs of bloody, aborted fetuses and shouting slogans. He even did it on Mother's Day and First Communion Sunday. The photos are horrifying for children and sensitive viewers, and it has become a major issue in the parish.
This gentleman ought to heed the advice of the world's oldest rock 'n' roll star, Tuli Kupferberg (LRR):
"The goal is not to shock people but to change their attitude," he said. ".... Shocking people is stupid and infantile. That turns people against you."
