Time for an Army of Davids

 

Roe v. Wade and Casey v. Planned Parenthood have been overturned at last. I do not wish to rain on anyone’s parade — this is fantastic news, after all — but the left has been preparing for this news for over a month. How will they react? I’m not party to their intrigues, but given what has already been happening at Catholic churches and crisis pregnancy centers, I suspect the most fitting word will be Kristallnacht.

Unlike German Jews of the time, however, we are not helpless, voiceless, and disorganized. We are an army of Davids, able to collect our cellphones, pepper spray, and yes, our guns and work together to defend what is ours.

If your church or local pregnancy center is in a vulnerable area, talk to your fellow congregants about setting up a vigil to watch over the building. If you can travel to a vulnerable target, join a vigil there. If you know the congregants of a vulnerable location, encourage them to form vigils and ask if there is anything you can do to help.

The enemy has shown us its face and what it wishes to do. Let us reveal ours: we are people who will not go looking for trouble, but we will stand by what is ours and defend it. We will not allow our missions to be compromised, nor will we allow our holy places to be desecrated, not will we cower in our homes and let our neighbors’ holy places be desecrated.

The pro-life side won its victory today by standing together, despite theological differences. Let us defend our newly captured stronghold the same way.

    What does “wear a mask” mean (because the organizers are irrational science deniers who believe that masks are a talisman against Covid, or because the group is planning heinous violence and does not want to be identified), and why is the masking so important that it is shouted in all capital letters?

    Don’t know, but I would think at least Fairfax County. “Carpooling” is mentioned.  

    I would hope the Thomases plan to be somewhere else.

    I am not terribly impressed by this.  The presence of protesters at a house is “lawless.”

    Yes, this is as much a beginning as it is an ending.

    Since MSM is going to give all this the mostly peaceful protest treatment it’s going to be interesting to see what if any difference Elon’s Twitter is going make. The ugly demented face of the pro abortion movement has been shielded for so long.
