Apostate Clergy ‘Bless’ Ohio Abortion Facility: ‘Thank God for Abortion Providers’

CLEVELAND, Ohio — A group of approximately 15 apostate United Methodist, Episcopal and Jewish clergy recently gathered outside an abortion facility in Ohio to “bless” its services and to “thank God for abortion providers.”

“We gathered here today because far too many religious people forget that God’s love is steadfast,” Harry Knox, president of the Washington-based Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (RCRC), told the approximately 40 people joining the group for the event. “I’m here today standing alongside my fellow clergymen and clergywomen to say, ‘Thank God for abortion providers.’”

“The religious right has really hijacked the conversation on this issue, and we need to let women know that there are people of faith who are in favor of safe and legal abortion,” added event organizer Laura Young, a United Methodist minister who also serves as the executive director of the Ohio chapter RCRC.

“We want to show the clinic staff and the women who obtain their services and the community that there are people of faith who do believe that abortion is sometimes necessary and that it should be done in a safe, dignified way without shame,” she stated.

Those gathered outside of the Cleveland abortion facility Preterm, which has been in operation since 1974, held signs such as “Good Women Have Abortions” and “Pro-Faith, Pro-Family, Pro-Choice.” Young said that attendees also laid hands on abortion-minded mothers and staff.

The outlet Think Progress reports that the clergy hoped their blessing would protect the facility from “preachy protesters, as well as encourage the strength and bravery of those providing and relying on its services.” Young explained to the publication that if the gathering succeeds, RCRC will move on to other facilities in other states.

She already runs a counseling hotline for abortion-minded mothers who question if it is a sin to end their child’s life.

“It breaks my heart to know women are sitting in pews across the country feeling shamed, believing that they’re cursed for making this decision,” Young told reporters. “That’s a question I get a lot on the phone, ‘Am I going to Hell?’ when God instead is there to support women through it all.”

Knox’s group has been in headlines before and has written prominent op-eds regarding his pro-abortion viewpoint. As previously reported, in September 2014, his article “Reverends Like Us Should Never Oppose Access to Abortion or Sex Ed” was published by the Washington Post.

“[Our faith] is why we absolutely believe that every woman should have the ability to make her own decision on whether and when to raise a child,” he wrote, along with co-author Alethea Smith-Withers. “Her health insurance should honor the full spectrum of care that she might need, including abortion.”

But Clenard Childress, pastor of New Calvary Baptist Church in Montclair, N.J. and director of the Life Education and Resource Network (LEARN), disagreed.

“I say to the clergy, they must remember Who called them. The Democratic Party didn’t call them, nor the Republican Party,” he told Christian News Network at that time. “And their call came from a God that asked them to represent Him—to represent His teachings and His word.”

“How can you not defend life when you read in Jeremiah the fifth chapter, ‘Before you were formed in your mother’s womb, I knew you?’” Childress asked. “I was already somebody in God before I was in the womb. … The pulpit must reconcile themselves to that verse.”

There are nine abortion facilities in Ohio. Eight others have closed in the past five years due to inability to comply with state laws or as the result of wrongdoing.

    Women need not be in theses positions. What exactly do you bless? U bless them for killing babies ??? ! These people are SICK!

    • LadyFreeBird<In God I Trust

      Maybe this is why Paul said Women should not teach. These Women seem to think it is okay for Women to Murder the Unborn Humans.There were some other Women Pastors who wanted God to be referred to as she. I would hate to be these Women on the day they face God…………………..

      • Chrissy Vee

        These “women” brought feminism, murder, Muslim prayer and homosexuality to the pulpit.
        It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Hebrews 10:31

        • LadyFreeBird<In God I Trust

          Amen. I would hate to be them on the day they face God with what they tied to do.What a day of shame they will feel.

    • Kandy

      Look at their eyes. They look happy to be doing this.There is something evil in what they are doing.They are very sick indeed!

      • warriorbride

        I was just thinking that myself !

  • LadyFreeBird<In God I Trust

    Women who thinks that God will bless the murder of the Unborn??? No way can they bless the murder of the Unborn Humans.
    As these Women can do is dig their pit in H E DOUBLE hockey stick.
    They are adding a curse to their souls. What they are doing is Evil!

    • warriorbride

      Exactly what Jesus warned us about in Matthew 7.

    These women are of the clergy for satan. Satan was a murderer from the beginning. Satan comes to steal, kill and destroy. These women serve him.

    Jesus came to give us life, and have it abundantly. John 10:10

    • Chuck

      You are 100% correct and they will be judged accordingly.

  • FoJC_Forever

    More people claiming to be Christian, but only promoting their own beliefs as Faith.

      Unless we can show that our views originate in Scripture, we are no different from these women who likewise cannot support their position with Scripture.

      Scripture is God’s Word, anything else is our word against his.

        “In the womb he [Jacob] grasped his brother’s heel; as a man he struggled with God.” (Hosea 12:3)

        “Did not he who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same one form us both within our mothers?” (Job 31:15)

        “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made . . . My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” (Psalm 139:13-16)

        “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5)

        “His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit . . . an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 1:18-20)

        “But the angel said to her, ‘Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. . . .

        • Kandy

          I love the scriptures you posted. They show the truth of the unborn.These Women thin they can the killing of the Unborn? These Women need to study and read these scriptures before they try to bless this kind of murder. Thank you for posting it.

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            Amen, Kandy, and God bless you for your encouragement!

        • Dave_L

          Please note that I was agreeing with fojcf’s bold claim. And adding a few comments of my own.

          You did a fine job providing Scripture to support your claim. I wish everyone would do likewise and not just blurt ideas that have no basis in Scripture on the various topics discussed here. It is God’s Word that is Spirit and Life. When we speak our minds the same is not true.

          “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” (John 6:63)

        • MamaBear

          World, you have done it again. Excellent job showing the Bible, therefore God as it is His Word, is pro-life.

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            Coming from you, MamaBear, that is the highest compliment.

            How can the Author of Life, Who creates life, Who IS Life (John 14:6), and Who wishes to draw us into Eternal Life (Romans 6:23, John 3:15-16, 1 John 5:13, John 17:3), NOT be pro-life?!?

          • Kandy

            amen.

      • FoJC_Forever

        There is no “we”, Dave_L. You are not a Christian. You are not my leader, my mentor, nor my authority. You are a fraud, and internet persona. You don’t believe in nor follow Jesus (the) Christ, you simply create online personas through posting Scripture and being careful what you type.

        I don’t post Scripture at your command, because you are like your father, the Devil.

        You will pay for your treachery. You think you’re in the good right now, but your calamity will come upon you without notice, suddenly, and then you will be no more.

        • Dave_L

          If you post your views leading people to think they are what God’s Word says, it is wrong no matter how you try to justify it. It is not too much for me to ask for Scripture references to support some of the things you say. Perhaps I overlooked something in my studies and you can provide better insight. But without any Scripture to validate what you say, I can only remain with what I know to be true.

          • Josey

            Come down off your high horse Dave, you are not the Holy Spirit! Repent, humble yourself under the Mighty hand of God.
            James 4:4-6 4Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. 5Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? 6But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
            1 Corinthians 10:12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

          • Dave_L

            I never knew one Christian that would find fault in using God’s Word as a resource for enlightenment, and then find fault with those asking for Scripture references when someone makes a questionable claim about a “Biblical” topic.

        • Kandy

          God will stop him. God sees what he is doing. God knows what he is doing. And why he is doing it.You should have seen what he said to Josey.

            Beware of role playing. It is often done on comment boards and forums, even one person using multiple usernames. One username they’ll be almost anti-Christ, while another they assume the role of a skeptic agnostic. Then another role, they will be the hot headed preacher slamming people with the Bible, while their friend plays the ‘voice of reason’ diplomat. For people like this, words are just play things to provide entertainment and what people believe is only opinion. They have no Truth. They do not know Jesus, so they cannot hear His voice and they do not follow Him.

            John 10:16, John 10:27

            Follow Jesus, find Truth.

            Thank you. I have been thinking the same thing myself.The good thing is one day he/they will face God and God will have the last say.

    People are condemned in church for much less than abortion. If women were free of guilt they would have no need for a savior from sin. If sin should be accepted, then where is the power of the resurrection of Jesus? Are these women to be happy in their sins?

    • WorldGoneCrazy

      As someone who spent many decades surrounded by women like these, I can assure you that the word “sin” is not in their normal vocabularies. Cannot tell you how many time they said “I’m not comfortable using that word.”

      • JohninRedding

        Thanks for being willing to share your experience. It does say a lot about their theology or lack thereof.

  • Reason2012

    “bless” its services and to “thank God for abortion providers.”

    “Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.”
    Matthew 5:21-22

    “We gathered here today because far too many religious people forget that God’s love is steadfast,”

    “[Jesus said] And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.”
    Luke 12:4-5

    “The religious right has really hijacked the conversation on this issue, and we need to let women know that there are people of faith who are in favor of safe and legal abortion,”

    “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”
    Proverbs 14:12

    added event organizer Laura Young, a United Methodist minister

    “Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church. What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?”
    1 Corinthians 14:34-36

    The outlet Think Progress reports that the clergy hoped their blessing would protect the facility from “preachy protesters…

    “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”
    2 Timothy 4:2-4

    She already runs a counseling hotline for abortion-minded mothers who question if it is a sin to end their child’s life.

    “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”

    “And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.”
    1 John 2:3-4

    “[Our faith] is why we absolutely believe that every woman should have the ability to make her own decision on whether and when to raise a child,”

    “Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.”

    Pay close attention. THIS is the type of ‘Christian’ atheists will approve of. Our current crop of government officials too. This is the type of ‘fundamental transformation’ they have in mind for the church…

          I like the way you put that! Of course, I would say that even the Pharisees had MUCH better Scriptural knowledge than these “clergy.” 🙂

    Abortion = No Family

  • Doris Evans Charlton

    GEE, isn`t double hockey sticks a little harsh? SMH

  • Bina Bino

    These guys’ language is so-called sweet and is luring & lying in the actuality. Of course that a woman (& a baby) have a choice to give life/not. But they are not teaching the other part – the consequences for a woman’s & (a baby’s) life (lifelong regrets & emotional suffering etc.) Our Lord, who created the universe, does allow abortion in certain cases – which are very special & include a woman’s/a babies life immediately in danger & similar. Abortion other than that is a murder.

    • Dave_L

      Do you have Scripture where God allows abortion in certain cases? Medical science has confronted us with options and situations that nature more or less took care of in itself. But today, we have some real challenges, i.e., abortion, life support, euthanasia etc.. Any Scripture to support your position would help.

      • Bina Bino

        Thx Dave 4 your reply here. I do not memorize scripture yet. I know that God says, Thou shall not kill. However this is my personal opinion, you know – if I had a baby & somewhere during my pregnancy a doctor discovered I was terminally ill & in order 4 me 2 survive, I need treatments that will affect the baby/babie’s health. In this case, of course I would have been praying already & I would have taken those treatments ( I know there is alternative medicine, naturopath etc. which I cannot afford). Thx Dave, let me know.

        • Dave_L

          Sometimes we imagine bad situations but there is a good chance we will never experience them. They are only imaginations. Sometimes people will imagine them for you and challenge you for an answer about what the right response would be. But again, there is a good chance they will never happen.

          I suppose my answer would always be that God will never give to us more than we are able, but with the trial or temptation, he will provide a way of escape. The important thing is to trust him in all situations.

          “No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13)

          • Bina Bino

            I would not call these situations imaginations. Though, I do thank Him 4 the health I have right now. The rest about trusting the Lord & leaning into Him completely – I agree. God bless.

          • Dave_L

            I guess that if my wife needed lifesaving surgery that would terminate a pregnancy as a side effect, it wouldn’t actually be an abortion.

  • John_33

    I can’t say I’m surprised. Harry Knox is not only pro-abortion, but he is also a gay activist that debated Dr. Michael Brown on the subject of “Can you be Gay and Christian?”. The debate is available on YouTube. It’s quite eye-opening seeing what these so-called “Christians” are pushing. They have a completely anti-Christian, anti-Bible agenda across the board.

    • Dave_L

      Aren’t we a lot like these women preachers when we preach Christ from one side of our mouths and preach war and violence from the other? If only they and we would follow Jesus and shun all retaliation and violence instead of shunning only some.

      • Josey

        Don’t preach to me about retaliation Dave, I turn my cheek on a daily basis not that it’s any of your business because you do not care one iota about me. The Holy Spirit of God deals with me daily. You worry about your walk with God and leave mine alone! I am not saying this out of rebellion against those whom God has entrusted to help me in truth because I can discern truth from lies and I know those God has sent to teach me the truth, you are not one of them and you do not know me on a personal basis or know what I deal with on a daily basis nor any of these other brothers or sisters on this comment site. I don’t have a violent bone in my body that I know of and if I do God through His Spirit will deal with me on that not you. You seem to confuse violence with preaching against sinful behaviour, you are in confusion and where confusion is there are other evil works abiding for confusion does not come from God. And NO, I am not like these heretical women who are applauding murdering the innocent, not even close, I detest what they applaud!

        • Dave_L

          You took this personally. Why? I did not accuse you of anything, I only mentioned that we as Christians should condemn all violence in obedience to Jesus. If you already turn the other cheek, why would you take it otherwise?

          • Josey

            I suppose because it was addressed to me and I get tired of you repeating this over and over again when one expresses their hate for sinful behaviour such as what these servants of the evil one express their hatred for the unborn but yet do it in such a way as to look like they care for in this case, women. I have no idea why you would make a comment like you did up above about Christians speaking out two sides of the mouth and linking violence with the topic of this article. And you also say, “aren’t we a lot like these women preachers when we preach Christ from one side of our mouths and preach war and violence from the other?” When have Christians preached war and violence, who are you referring to?

          • Dave_L

            Let me ask; did Churches advocate their members taking part in the Reformation wars and persecutions? Or the world wars that involved the “christian” nations? Do “Christians” preach war in Israel’s behalf today? How many “Christians” were involved in the Revolutionary war with the full blessings of the Churches in both England and the Colonies? If you say “These were not Christians” as some insist in the case of the Nazis, then you are admitting that only Christian Pacifists are actually Christians.

    2 Corinthians 7:10 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.
    I thank God with all of my heart when He revealed to me over thirty years ago where my life of sin was leading me and showed me how filthy the sin in my life was, that is true love because He cared and loved me and showed me the truth so I could repent and receive the blessing of what Christ did by taking my sin. It is not true love these heretical women who are working for satan are claiming to show women who wonder if killing their unborn will send them to hell, the reason a woman would even ask a question such as that is because they feel convicted of the thought of killing, conviction and feeling bad about abortion is the gift of God to them and the only way a woman who has either already aborted their child or is thinking about aborting their baby will ever be right again is if they turn to Christ who can redeem them and set them on the godly path. These ungodly women who claim to be ministers and who are not but liars are only giving false temporary words to women to make them feel better in the moment but listen ladies who are struggling with their conscience on this issue, it is a false temporary feeling that murder is ok these lying women are giving you, you will live with the turmoil and guilt the rest of your life and Christ Jesus is the only one to turn to, don’t buy into these lies, you feel bad because it is wrong to kill your babies, if you cannot raise them their are plenty of those who will adopt, there are other options. Our Creator, Almighty God is a God of the living not a God of the dead.

  • JohninRedding

    “believing that they’re cursed for making this decision” This don’t mention there is a fix- any sin is forgivable. But wouldn’t it be better if the sin (abortion) is never committed? How any one could call themselves a Christian and defend abortions is beyond me? How do you justify ending the life of something God has blessed? Every conception occurs because it is God’s will. Once sex has occurred without protection, God is in control.

  • Randy Wideman

    this is why bible states plainly dont let women preach

      As a Woman myself I agree. Women should not Preach in a Church. Older Women can teach younger Women.As long as long as they are godly Women.

    As a Christian, if the world is in favor of what you are doing then you are most likely doing it wrong. James 4:4 ‘You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.’

    Some of my posts on this topic were deleted. I believe the reason for this is because I am consistently “Pro-Life”. By this I mean that I am not only opposed to all Abortion, but also all war and violence because of Jesus’ teachings in the Sermon on the Mount. Many on this board are pro violence, pro war and pro retaliation in direct violation to Jesus’ teachings and I believe this is the bone of contention.

    “Dave_L” Hurt Josey big time.He said something horrible to her. But is trying to deny it since it got deleted. Many Christians on this site have been hurt by him.One begged him to stop. But he refuses to stop.He tears Christians down.He can be cruel to some people. He even had some of his buddies come to another thread on this sits to cause trouble.Some of them would up-vote him and he them as well. Some were Atheist some gay. When others said something negative they would jump all over the people. But when he would say something.It was okay by them. Because he is one of them trying to cause trouble with the Christians. This is not his first time doing this.He has had other accounts. Other names. He will not man up and admit the truth. I believe God will stop him.

      Only those who reject Jesus’ teaching in the Sermon on the Mount are offended by what I say. I believe Josey is one of the few on this board who actually studies the Bible and can support her position using it.

      I would also ask you to provide direct quotes from my posts as examples of “tearing down” any Christians. If you cannot do this, try to reconstruct any comments I made. I never give opinions or say unkind things of others on a personal level as this is sin by judging.

      I ask for Scriptural support from marginal Christians who advocate homosexuality and abortion. Why should it be any different if I ask the same from those advocating violence, and retribution? Especially when Jesus forbids it?

      Dave_L loves to make snide remarks to Christians.

    I have already told Dave_L I will no longer toss pearls his way. And that I shook his dust from my feet. It is not only Josey but others as well that he has hurt.He can say what he wants to about me all he wants.I am not worried about what he thinks.It is what God knows about me that matters. Praise God.

    The title of this article tells it all “Apostate….” that’s what these “pastors” are – It’s really disgusting and I pray the Lord has a little more longsuffering for this disgusting world to allow as many who will call on the name of JESUS to come to salvation. Disgusting.

    They look like under drugs on the image. Does anyone know what they have drunken or smoked?

    A group of approximately 15 apostate United Methodist, Episcopal and Jewish clergy recently gathered outside an abortion facility in Ohio to “bless” its services and to “thank God for abortion providers.”
    ” ‘Reverends Like Us Should Never Oppose Access to Abortion or Sex Ed’ ”
    If there is a heart that beats, and blood that circulates, there is life. There is only 1 (false) god that I know that would “bless” abortions. When he, Harry Knox says “Reverends LIKE US” is very telling. They always say “God is all loving”, and in the very next breath, serve a god that not only condones death, but the violent way in which this procedure is done in all of it’s varieties, right up until partial birth abortions. Of course these ministers are going to push people to do that which honors and glorifies their god.
    Pastor Childress correctly , but in ignorance says: ““And their call came from a God that asked them to represent Him—to represent His teachings and His word.” The presumption is that these ministers are ministers of the creator God of the Bible.

    Luke 9:56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.
    John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
    2 Peter 2:1-2 But false prophets were also among the people, as also false teachers will be among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, and denying the Master who has bought them, bringing swift destruction on themselves. (2) And many will follow their destructive ways, by whom the way of truth will be evil spoken of.

    Scripture is quite clear about commanding Christians to judge the body, and call out the apostate leaders. It is good to see that Christian News Network is making appropriate titles for articles like this.
