Pro-lifers hate hearing their methods criticized, as I’m sure a number of you have discovered. (I’m sure because you’ve shared your sad stories with me before in this regard.) As a result, the movement remains moribund. God can do anything, however, and fortunately everything from pre-natal screening to movies like Knocked Up are out there, prompting people to question their long-held convictions.
As you can see from the comments, many decent people are more attached to bad methods than to good results. They design websites virtually guaranteed to turn off their intended audience then get very defensive when you point out their Marketing 101 mistakes. Then they blame abortion on “the culture” without pausing to think of their part in creating that “culture.”
I could easily hand out pamphlets or design a website that said “Women who get abortions are sinners.” And I would be right. But all the explanations and FAQs about how, see, in Catholic theology we are all sinners and Jesus came to forgive sinners blah blah blah mean diddly because every pro-choice woman who lays eyes on that site will have her heart hardened even more. It’s like putting an unopenable cap on a medicine bottle — “but it’s to protect people!” Genius. They’ll be really protected when they’re dead.
Don’t hide your light under a bushel of clever self-righteousness because you think (in your secret heart of hearts) that “those other people” don’t deserve your message anyway. This is onanism. The message isn’t “yours” to hide, anyway. It’s supposed to be God’s, remember?
Christianity is not a private club that screens out seekers using clever code words with double and triple meanings. I shouldn’t need a FAQ to understand the message of your website, especially when it purports to be about a matter of life or death.
