Abortion is Key

I just read Jim Wallis'

I just read Jim Wallis’ statement (in "High Stakes for Church and State"), "But there are two issues in this election year that most tug at my heart, worry my Christian conscience, and compel me to faithful citizenship and discipleship. The first is poverty, the second is war. And in both the issue is our confession of Christ."

I am baffled how you could put poverty and war over the murder of God’s creation at its most innocent stage. It strikes me odd that any "Christian" can put any issue ahead of the murder of innocent babies yet born. I agree that poverty and war are worthwhile issues, but certainly they don’t hold a candle to murdering millions of his children.
