Operation Rescue's Tactics

Operation Rescue, the non-violent sit-ins which have temporarily shut down some places where abortions are performed, is revealing a division among some Christians, and is causing some Christians to say things about other Christians which are harsh, ugly and untrue.

For example, in Atlanta, the Rev. Charles Stanley, pastor of the First Baptist Church in that City, is against the tactics being used by Operation Rescue. In a statement, he says God's word "clearly teaches that abortion is murder." He says that his pastoral staff and deacons "strongly oppose" abortion. And he says they also "advocate all lawful means of protesting abortion" (emphasis his).
