Skip to comments.California Megachurches Unite to Cry Out Against Abortion ( Catholics & Evangelicals )
Posted on 05/17/2009 1:03:39 PM PDT by kellynla
Evangelical megachurches across San Diego, Calif., are joining Catholics on Sunday to make a public outcry against abortion in their first ever joint pro-life rally.
The demonstration, which will take place after the multiple worship services that typically take place at megachurches, is being held on the same day President Barack Obama will take the stage at the University of Notre Dame to deliver the commencement speech.
While the San Diego rally is fundamentally a pro-life rally, the undertone of the event is "a statement to the president that the killing of babies must come to an end," Pastor Jim Garlow of Skyline Church told The Christian Post.
Garlow, along with thousands of Catholics, believes the University of Notre Dame is violating its Roman Catholic values by awarding Obama with an honorary doctor of laws degree.
"We join with many in noting this moment of deception and shame," Garlow said.
The Skyline Church pastor is not new to the cultural wars scene.
Last year, his 2,500-member church actively rallied California congregations to help pass Proposition 8, which defines marriage as between a man and a woman.
This year, he called up his busy "evangelical friends" to create a "powerful new force" to the pro-life movement. And at a moment's notice, Garlow noted, they hopped on board.
"I'm amazed," Garlow said. "I have not seen this willingness to be active and speak out for about 20 years."
"I have not seen this kind of concern over the pro-life cause."

Good new. If Christians in this country would quit their interdenominational bickering and unite, we could be an insurmountable force.
I wholeheartedly agree!!! Just think of what could be accomplished if we stopped attacking each other and instead stand united in the common beliefs that we share.
Let’s start it right here on FR.
Wonderful news. We will start to see more and more of this when the persecutions come. And they will come.
I’ll put a ditto on that too.
The problem is also that one group is liberal and one group is conservative.
my, my what a WIDE BRUSH you have...
don't mind stereotyping do ya...LMAO
I won't even bother asking you which group you think is "liberal?"
Bigotry would be ignoring political facts and clinging to a chauvinistic falsehood.
I was thinking of who voted for President Obama and who voted against him.
You can't change something until you first know what that thing is.
GOOD GOOD GOOD
Just like the bamster is the world’s greatest gun salesman, maybe he will become the “uniter” of God fearing people who turn against him. Especially those who profess to be “christian”, but support this abomination. Maybe this is God’s hand working in mysterious ways. I believe it can happen. He ran on hope and change. My hope is that this country will right itself again and the change will be that the dims are finally shown to be who they really are and are completly rejected. Poetic justice.
He's not going to find the answer by asking you.
Amazing << Hear this. Feel this, and tell me that this isn't music.
I was lodging an objection to his sense of exclusion.
Here is my feeling on uniting for this:
From Friday...Fr. Norm is flanked and supported by two great Baptist pastors.Hat tip: EternalVigilance
Sometimes pictures truly are worth far more than a thousand words!
It seems that you like things as they are but I don’t, we need more conservative voters.
Spare me the attempted mindreading. You’re not very good at it.
What are you defending with a post like that?
