Last night I wrote a post about LiveAction and the Saul Alinsky book they recommended, Rules for Radicals. I have to admit, even after reading Why Live Action did right and why we all should know that by Dr. Peter Kreeft, I still object to Alinsky’s ideas and to anyone in the pro-life movement using them.
And that is my real beef with LiveAction, not that they did undercover sting operations and lied to the sleazy corrupt minions of sleazy Planned Parenthood. It’s that they recommended Saul Alinsky to their fellow pro-life workers on their website and that their representative actually told me via email that they didn’t see anything wrong with his book or his methods. That is what bothered me then and is still what bothers me now. I think they took the book off their site, I haven’t seen it lately, but I have yet to hear any of them repudiate it. If you’ve read Rules for Radicals, you know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t, read it. Everything you’re seeing right now in the world–the middle east, Wisconsin, Europe–will suddenly make a whole lot of sense. Evil sense, but sense, nonetheless.
So, as I have said, I am glad that LiveAction is exposing Planned Parenthood for the sleazy corrupt bunch that they are. I think that is great. Wonderful. Marvelous! Praise the Lord! I just wish I knew they understood why Saul Alinsky is someone who cannot instruct us in spiritual combat, except insofar as he can show us the demonic forces we are up against.
