LeRoy Carhart, who will start murdering children in Germantown MD this coming Monday, has also set his eyes on doing the same in Council Bluffs, Iowa. There the local bishop, Richard Pates of the Diocese of Des Moines, mobilized his flock into action, according to this Lifesite News article.
I've no doubt that the political climate there is more pro-life than is Montgomery County MD. The Council Bluffs city council unanimously voted to deny Carhart purchase of a vacant lot, wheareas our county council, securely in NARAL's back pocket, voted to hobble local pregnancy center.
That being said, we all would welcome strong voices from all the Maryland bishops, particularly from Cardinal Wuerl, as this Germantown hell hole is located within the Archdiocese of Washington.
As announced yesterday, a prayer vigil will be held on the sidewalk in front of the office complex where the murder center is located. We must make a strong showing that day, and in the days to come. It may well be a long haul, but we must see it through.
Thanks to American Papist for the tip.
