How 1,000 Women Who Aborted Feel About the Local Church.
One surmises* that the gist of the article is that most women don't consult their local church about getting an abortion because they expect a negative response. Duh.
How many who divorce, smoke pot or cigarettes, don't give much to charity, gossip, overeat or swear consult their local church about the practice or expect a positive response from their local church?
Should the church show a more caring face for all bad habits/sins? Probably Christianity Today would say no. One thinks rape, murder, child molestation and on the lighter side probably cigarette smoking, anti-vaccination, littering and causing global warming would receive a clear negative response.
But, there are some habits/sins that are viewed as culturally difficult by Christianity Today so they get a pass, or at least some writers Christianity Today publishes believe leeway should be given.
The real issue is how to separate one's response to the sin from one's response to the sinner. That's always an important question. Response to one particular sin as opposed to all sins says more about personal or cultural preference rather than about what is eternally true, right and good.
This is another reason why we stopped subscribing to Christianity Today decades ago.
*I say "surmises" because the article is behind a pay wall and not worth paying for to resolve doubts.
