Yesterday I attended a meeting of pro-choice colleagues working to ensure women throughout this country get safe, compassionate abortion care. Today, I received an email from one of those colleagues, detailing the ordeal through which she was put by American Airlines on her flights home.

He understood, and covered up the sticker.
Ya nailed it!
Your last paragraph sums up exactly how I feel about so much that is going on.
How far this country has fallen. Back in the 1950’s and before it was customary for men to wear a jacket and tie when flying. No one dared wear jeans to Church either.
I feel sorry for the kids of today, I really do.
She wore that shirt because she knew the expletive would get her into trouble, and then she’d whine about how she, as a crusader for women, was discriminated against.
The comments under the article are telling. I especially like how the one sane poster over there (”dventimi”) took the author to task for her “facts”, AND didn’t let her skate when she tried to dismiss his altogether calm and fair argument as “a rant”.

If we are going to suffer for a cause, may it be a righteous cause.
“If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part He is evil spoken of, but on your part He is glorified.

Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.” (1 Peter 4:14-16)
“Remember Lot’s wife.” (Luke 17:32)
