CORRECTION: Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing

To the Editor:

Concerning its 10/2/09 article, “Baptist, Brethren, Lutheran, Methodist Clergy Promote Abortion in New Letter,” LifeSite News has issued the following, “NOTE: An earlier edition of this story indicated the denominations of the clergy also signed the letter. We are happy to correct this and note that the denominations apparently did not participate, only the clergy members themselves.“

It is confusing for churches to say that they are pro-life but then have clergy members who make such pro-abortion statements using their denominational credential to strengthen their argument. I am certain that any denomination misrepresented by this letter will quickly discipline its  pro-abortion clergy.  Otherwise, those churches run the risk of sending a mixed signal just as the Roman Catholic Church recently did by allowing the Sacraments including a high Mass for Senator Ted Kennedy—the staunchest supporter of abortion in the U.S. Senate.
