Some things are just not funny. . .
First Things recorded that the “Director of Civil and Human Rights” for the United Methodist Church, Bill Mefford, posted a picture to Twitter yesterday mocking the pro-life marchers. Mefford, who works for the church’s lobby arm, the General Board of Church and Society, ridiculed the marchers by posting a picture of himself standing before them with a sign saying “I march for sandwiches.”
Paul Stallsworth, himself a UMC pastor, wrote in First Things of his own sorrow over that sign. You can read him here. . .
While we adamantly disagree with the pro-choice position, the worst thing of all in this debate that has divided America since 1973 is that we trivialize either position or the debate as a whole. Surely the stakes of this issue are too high to allow us to mock what has caused hurt, consternation, division, and passion to several generations of Americans. Mr. Mefford may have thought he was being cute, even witty. In the end he showed himself to be the joke. I hope and pray that all sides in this debate are serious about the issues, serious about the consequences, and serious about the stakes of our choice as a nation to permit the life of children in the womb to be ended at the will of the mother. Whether you are pro-choice or pro-life, this is not funny, not in the least, and not at all.

Heretic Mefford's sign is idiotic if aimed at Pro-Life marchers. And it doesn't even apply to pro-murder-by-abortion and other traitorous leftist marchers, who expect to receive more than a sandwich.
Pro-choice is NOT a position like a position on whether we should raise taxes or not, but is a worldview that defends and justifies evil. We cannot and should not simply disagree with their "position" but work to defeat and its evil underpinnings!--Chris
More than that, we need to continue to demand that pro-murder-by-abortion jurists, legislators, providers, and advocates in the U.S. be indicted, tried, convicted, and sentenced in a Nuremberg-style trial for crimes against humanity, genocide, and giving aid and comfort to the enemy.
@Unknown: the pro-death worldview most certainly involves economics as both the fuel for their juggernaut and means of control.
Yes indeed, this is not or funny. The shedding of innocent blood should never be made light of.
