Where Are the Pastors Willing to Speak Against Abortion Holocaust?

Published: Tuesday, February 4, 2014

Sunday, Jan. 19, was Sanctity of Life Sunday. Unfortunately, many mainline denomination churches and pastors were silent on this issue. Why the disconnect?

Perhaps, in part, it is because half of the women attending in many cases have had abortions, and, therefore, it is not a popular theme in our society.

Interestingly, in pre-war Germany, there were essentially two main churches: those that sought the creation of a national reich church and the confessing church, which stood against Hitler by declaring that the church’s allegiance was to God and Scripture, not a worldly fuhrer.

However even in the confessing church, few pastors were aggressive in direct opposition to Hitler, and his program against the Jews, Poles, Gypsies, etc.

Two courageous pastors who did speak out were Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Martin Niemoller. Bonhoeffer spoke out against the persecution of Jewish converts to Christianity, and was arrested in 1943 and hanged April 6, 1945, in the Flossenburg concentration camp.

For the rest of the post…
