Diocese of Niagara's Dean Peter Wall declares opposing abortion to be un-Christian

Diocese of Niagara's Dean Peter Wall declares opposing abortion to be un-Christian

The Cathedral Dean of the Diocese of Niagara, Peter Wall, thinks those who oppose abortion cannot be Christians:

Here he is reacting to the recently signed Alabama law making aborting unborn babies a felony:

"As a Christian myself, it is a shameful embarrassment to see the word Christian attached to those who would support Alabama's outrageous law. What is Christian about being anti-abortion or maliciously 'pro-life'?"

Here is the tweet:

I am just as much at a loss to understand how being pro-life could be "malicious" as I am to reconcile dismembering babies in the womb with being a follower of the Giver of life. If anything is a "shameful embarrassment", it is the Dean's repulsive tweet.

The Canaanites who sacrificed their children to the god Moloch look almost benign in comparison to the contemporary equivalent. At least they thought they were appeasing their god; we sacrifice to appease our sense of convenience, writes David.

"I agree with Wall about one thing: his Christianity is not mine."

Diocese of Niagara, bow down to your god: Picture is of the god Moloch
