    Progressive group starts training pro-abortion rights religious leaders

    By Dan Gilgoff, Religion Editor

    (CNN) – A Washington advocacy group training in-the-trenches religious leaders to speak out on hot-button issues like abortion is nothing new.

    But a liberal beltway group training left-leaning clergy to speak out for abortion rights is.

    “Religion does support a woman’s personal decision-making about whether she is ready to become a parent,” said Sally Steenland, director of the Faith Initiative at the Center for American Progress, a progressive group that launched its Faith and Reproductive Justice Leadership Institute on Tuesday.

    “We felt that the harsh anti-choice rhetoric dominating the public debate stigmatized women making these important decisions and claimed a monopoly on God, morality, and family values,” Steenland said in an e-mail message.

    I doubt that most are really Christians ......they figure if they can get a few liberal Christians to say that abortion is OK with God that they can counter conservative Christians.

    I love that thought. Religion should have been aborted before it began.

    It is kind of interesting when you think about it. Mary is the most famous Wh @ r e of all time and her son is one of the most famous con-men of all time. Scam and lying seems to have run in the family.
