Remain calm about Stupak

MI pro-life Democrat Congressman (and co-chair of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus) Bart Stupak has been a real hero on trying to nix public funding of abortion in healthcare. I can’t imagine how we’d stand a chance of stopping it without him. That’s why I didn’t jump on Stupak when

“Teacher,” they said, “we know how honest you are. You teach the way of God truthfully. You are impartial and don’t play favorites. Now tell us what you think about this: Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar or not?”

But Jesus knew their evil motives. “You hypocrites!” he said. “Why are you trying to trap me? Here, show me the coin used for the tax.” When they handed him a Roman coin, he asked, “Whose picture and title are stamped on it?”

Caesar’s,” they replied.

“Well, then,” he said, “give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and give to God what belongs to God.”

Russell Hunter, “Incrementalism vs Immediatism,” as an example of Jesus’ pragmatism. The Pharisees expected Jesus to oppose the tax, and rightfully so – Jesus owed no one anything, particularly a subservient ruler, nor did the Jews, as chosen children of the true King. But Jesus determined the time was not yet right to exert His authority and trigger the revolution, demonstrating shrewdness, which Cunningham indicated could be applied to the pro-life movement via incrementalism and pragmatic public speech.
