Prolife group removes Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals from recommended book list

Back in February of this year I removed the links to LiveAction.org from my site because they listed Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky on their recommended books page. And when I contacted LiveAction via email and carried on a brief correspondence with their director of media, he insisted that they had thoroughly vetted the book and still wanted to recommend it. And, worse, he said that they used many of its methods. (:O) After a few exchanges wherein I expressed to him that I was only more horrified after hearing from him than I was before I contacted him, I left it at that and removed their links from my links page. Over the ensuing months, I would pop in from time to time to see if the book was still listed. And it was. But tonight, Oct 5 2010, I peeked in for a look-see and the book is gone! So I’m renewing the links to LiveAction.org. See the Recommended Books section at LiveAction.

(You may have noticed that the link says prolifewebsites instead of recommendedbooks. It’s just a little error in the coding of their page; look down the page a short distance and you’ll see the recommended books section.)

You can read below about how upset I was when I saw that book listed there a few months back. I was upset enough to contact them and carry on a brief correspondence with their director of media. Whether they thought better of it because of our conversation (at least in part) or for some other reason, I am happy to see that awful book removed. Thank you, Lord! God is Good! :)

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!
