Church Robbed of Donations to Pro-Life Pregnancy Clinic

July 22nd, 2013 - 11:15 am

A Catholic church has been robbed of donations destined for the Marih Center, a Pro-Life crisis pregnancy center in Alexandria, Virginia. St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Alexandria had been collecting donations of diapers, baby clothes, food, and infant formula for mothers in a playpen in the back of the church.

Multiple robberies removed the donated supplies from the church, straight from the playpens. Also, they took the playpens.

From the St. Mary’s church bulletin:

First, as we do typically twice a year, we are currently collecting items for Marih Center, the crisis pregnancy center on Duke Street. We ask for diapers, baby clothes, etc.  These donations are placed in a playpen at the back of the church, very appropriate for the task at hand.

We have had a problem of people coming into church and taking the donated items, meaning they never make their way to Marih. Well, two weeks ago someone stole the whole playpen. Maybe using the word ‘stole’ is not correct. Perhaps someone was in desperate need of a playpen for their little ones. One of our parishioners, an usher, was kind enough to buy a new playpen. Sadly, that depository was also stolen last weekend. I didn’t realize how much of a commodity playpens have obviously become. Nonetheless, that is the saga of the Marih Center playpen.

How base must one become to steal from a church, particularly supplies destined for needy mothers?  Had the thief approached the pastor of the church seeking help, Christian charity might well have resulted in the thief receiving cheerful assistance. But respect for the rule of law, particularly as it pertains to these charitable donations destined for needy mothers who have chosen life over abortion, is in short supply these days.

A Pro-Life pregnancy center ? I'd be willing to bet is was pro-abortion activists that did this out of spite.

It is hardly accidental that the funds for a pro-life agency were stolen. It goes without saying, those who are against the unborn will stop at nothing, and I mean nothing, to make sure that abortion, even until the day of delivery, is theirs on demand.
This type of radical thinking is little more than that of storm troopers, and they brook no dissent from their orthodoxy. And the fact that Obama Inc champions their efforts, well, gives them ever more 'license' to steal.

Sheesh, I post about how this story shows the struggle white Christians are having against theft in this country, and what does JCA do? Removes my comment.

There really is a war on Christians and the shots are coming from everywhere!

Several years ago, Rush Limbaugh claimed that abortion was a Holy Sacrament to the Left.

At the time, I dismissed it as hyperbole, but since Obama has taken office I've heard liberals, including elected officials, use the word "sacred" to describe abortion.

Now I think Rush may have hit the nail on the head in a way that most people would think is too monstrous and ghoulish to believe. I'm starting to think that pro abortion people literally see it as some sort of "sacred rite", they certainly behave more like religious fanatics than someone who's merely interested in "women's rights".

It would explain their hatred and fury for the Church. The way they see it, the Church is interfering with their right to practise their "religion" whenever an abortion is prevented.

It's very much a religious thing to some of them. Some regard it as a girl's rite of passage to womanhood.

The sickness of that is hard to fathom, but it's real nonetheless.
