Resident says vigil hurts property values, huh?

Yep, a gentleman who lives across the street from the abortion mill told our vigil attendees that the “protest” (the word pro-abortion folks prefer to peaceful-pro-life-prayer-vigil; I admit, it is a shorter expression) lowers the property values of the apartment building where he lives. :O Oh, no, he didden!

Oh, yes, he did. He actually said that we, the peaceful prayer presence of 40 Days for Life, are bringing property values down. The slaughterhouse across the street—that exists in its spot across the street each and every day, with its attendant and repugnant smell* that I find difficult to tolerate even for the brief time I’m there—doesn’t affect property values, oh, no, it’s us. Why? Because, he explained, we make people notice the abortion mill. We make it impossible for folks to ignore.

Well, Hallelujah and Amen, brother! That is exactly what we’re trying to do! Not to bring property values down, but to bring human values up! Up to where we really do have liberty in this country; life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

For ALL!

About Disciple

I am a pro-life activist, blogger, writer, poet, singer songwriter, musician, photographer, nerd, bookworm and Mac fan. I have two dogs, one of whom is well-travelled. (I had three for a while after adopting a senior dog, but he has now passed away, and the pack is back to two girl dogs. One was born after, the days of mammoth road trips.) And the most important thing is: I was received into Holy Mother Church in 1996 and, through the grace of God, I love Christ and His Church more with every passing day. Thanks be to God!

    Let me get this straight: protesters are the problem because they draw attention to the mass murder of children going on inside the concentration camp across the street from his residence? So, as long as you’re a QUIET concentration camp and you aren’t BOTHERING anybody it’s OK. Got it.

      Yeah, that’s basically what he’s saying. (Shakes head.) Sad, ain’t it? What a sick and twisted mind. A lot of people have stopped and talked to us and have been very supportive. Some have even jogged by and said, “Glad you all are out here, doing this!” But some…not so much. I offer up my prayers, works, joys and sufferings daily for the conversion of those whose hearts and minds are so hardened. And in reparation for sins. And for grace and graces for those who are already offering their time and efforts to help those in need.

      Peace be with you, Catherine.
      Disciple
