Christians have been at the forefront of civil rights movements over the past two centuries, from the abolition of slavery to the present-day drive to abolish abortion. So does it fall on those of a purportedly pro-life church to hold members, and leaders especially, accountable?
A pro-life group filmed Pastor Louis Chatman of the Elam Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama, pull up in his Mercedes at the Reproductive Health Services abortion clinic.
He dropped off his wife Callie (pictured above right), a certified medical technician who admitted to the Christian Post that she does work there one day a week (as a counselor).
I feel that we have all sinned. None of us are perfect. No sin is greater than any sin. I don’t know why, other than that’s the only decision [abortion] that a woman could make. That’s her right to make that decision because that’s her body.
Chatman, whose son Jerome also works there as a security guard, says her husband has no objections. Chatman also tells women about to abort their children that “God is a forgiving God.” As for those who who disapprove of her job: “You know what? The activists need to get their lives together. When they become sin-free then you call me back.”
Columnist La Shawn Barber is not buying her justification, noting that while we are not to judge, we are also to avoid the appearance of evil (much less cooperate with it).
