Civil disobedience? Right or wrong?
Last weekend, “climate change,” activists disrupted the Harvard v. Yale football game. Watch it here: https://bit.ly/2XRKk5k
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), a major backer of the House’s “Green New Deal,” hailed the movement, tweeting, “Activism disrupts the present to change the future.”
The climate change movement has captured the passion of the younger generation, created urgency, and forced the issue onto the political agenda. For these reasons, we have much to learn from them.
The fact is, historically, social reformers have often used civil disobedience and other non-violent disruptive tactics to draw attention to injustice.
During the late 1980’s and early 1990’s prolife activists under the auspices of Operation Rescue disobeyed authority and blocked the doors of abortion facilities to save children and draw attention to child killing. As a result, thousands of Christians were arrested and went to jail.
At its heart, Operation Rescue was repentance movement which called call the church to repent for the shedding of innocent blood.
Repentance is defined as “the activity of reviewing one’s actions and feeling contrition or regret for past wrongs. It generally involves a commitment to personal change and resolving to live a more responsible and humane life.”
• Why did the rescue movement fail in its goal to end child killing?
• Have Christians lost their willing ness to sacrifice for the weak and defend truth?
• Why won’t Christians behave like abortion is murder?
Mark takes a walk down memory lane and explains why Operation Rescue failed and why the church is failing to end abortion killing today.
Operation Rescue as a movement has ended. However, if we have a chance of winning, Christians need revive the spirit of rescue.
