Anti-1215 Rally TOMORROW!

See you down at the FEDERAL courthouse (9th st, near the YMCA) at noon tomorrow.

Here's an email I sent to an evangelical friend of mine:

Isaiah 10 speaks to me today:
Woe to the legislators of infamous laws, to those who issue tyrannical decrees, who refuse justice to the unfortunate and cheat the poor among my people of their rights, and make widows their prey and rob the orphan.

I'll be out in the street tomorrow, protesting the outrageous law (1215, I'm sure you've heard of it) that has been foisted on our sad state of South Dakota.

I wanted you to know that there are many Christians of good faith that really have a problem with this. I'd feel a lot
differently if the "pro-lifers" as a whole were more committed to comprehensive sex education, improving access to birth
control, and, of course, paying taxes to support foster care, and economic support for poor families. The post-born
don't seem to get enough attention, especially around here.

My wife works in social services here and deals with teenagers that have never been wanted. She hasn't seen any of the politicians and activists that have pushed this depraved law through down there helping out with the precious lives that they apparently care so much about.

We've had it.
