Dawn Eden relates this story about a Planned Parenthood chaplain.
Planned Parenthood chaplain, Lisa Sargent hands out stones like these for those whom she feels needs them.
“I believe in God. I don’t know who he is,” the man answers. With few words, he tells Sargent about his life — a life filled with drugs, a recent overdose.
Sargent nods her heard. “I hear ya,” she says... pulling a shiny blue rock out of her pocket and giving it to the man.
Her position is rare — one of five within the national Planned Parenthood organization — and seemingly oxymoronic, violating the stereotypical separation of church and choice. In the great political abortion debate, religion falls on the right and abortion on the left. Yet reality is not so simple.
Who needs a Chaplain that can bring the Bread of Life when you can have nice, shiny rocks?
"Which one of you would hand his son a stone when he asks for a loaf of bread, or a snake when he asks for a fish?"
