Liberal Pastor to Ask for 'God's Blessing' on Abortion Clinic at Planned Parenthood 'Holy Ground' Event
Three days after the election, Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio will host a "holy ground" event featuring prayer and blessing over an abortion clinic.
The event, "Holy Ground: Blessing the Sacred Space of Decision," will feature Rev. Dr. Susan K. Smith, whose "Crazy Faith Ministries" is more "social justice" activist group than traditional church.
"Please join Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio, the Ohio Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, faith leaders, and honored guests for an interfaith gathering," the event page requests.
"Anti-abortion advocates do not have the monopoly on faith or God," Planned Parenthood insists. "Many faith leaders and people of faith hold that accessing and providing abortions are good and godly decisions."
Yes, Planned Parenthood hails "faith leaders" who consider the intentional killing of unborn babies as a "good and godly decision."
"During this clinic blessing, participants will gather with local faith leaders and guests to ask for God's blessing upon Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio's East Columbus Surgical facility, the abortion providers and staff, and all those who pass through the center," the event page promises.
"In celebration of conscience and moral decision making, this event will include interfaith blessings, prayer, and testimonies about receiving and providing abortion care," the page promises. "This clinic blessing will create space for progressive voices of faith to speak boldly in support of comprehensive reproductive health care, especially abortion."
Not only does Planned Parenthood consider abortion "care," it's trying to rebrand it as "holy" and "blessed."
What kind of "faith leaders" did Planned Parenthood find to christen the "holy ground" of this abortion clinic?
Rev. Dr. Susan K. Smith is the pastor at Crazy Faith Ministries. On its home page, the ministry declares, "We're not a traditional church." This "church" seems to prioritize "social justice" over the gospel. Its mission? "To teach the concept of crazy faith to do the work of social justice." For an organization focused on social justice, Crazy Faith seems rather unconcerned with helping the most helpless among us — babies in the womb.
"Our vision is to equip people to fight against injustice through the use of crazy faith," the site explains. "Crazy Faith is an organization dedicated to moving the obstacles faced by people one step at a time, believing that the smallest bit of faith is what has always brought about great changes and accomplishments."
Jesus did promise that "if you have faith like a grain of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to here,' and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you" (Matthew 17:20), and God does care about justice. Even so, the heart of Christianity is the gospel — that all people are sinful and Jesus died on the cross to redeem those who repent and rose again from the dead, proving He is God.
