Kansas church to build pro-life "wailing wall"

WICHITA, Kan. -- A church is beginning fundraising to collect millions of dollars for a pro-life memorial in Wichita.

The Spirit One Christian Ministry has just started its campaign to build a National Pro Life Memorial and International Life Center.

The Wichita Eagle reports that a brochure on the project says it would include an exact replica of the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem and memorial gardens.

It also would include 60 crosses memorializing the estimated 60 million abortions that have been performed since abortion was legalized.

The church’s pastor, Mark Holick, says land has been donated to the church for the center. He says more details about the project will be announced soon.





So now in addition to the creationist museum in Kentucky, I can visit the Anti-Choice Wailing Wall in Kansas.

If only they'd make a prosperity gospel themed amusement park in Indiana or Missouri, I could finally take the right-wing fundie roadtrip vacation I've always wanted.

6. Yes, let's have a 'wailing wall' instead of helping the poor, single parents

and children, or the elderly in any meaningful way.

7. This is stupid on so many levels

First off, I'm from the Wichita area originally. It's a nice city, but no one goes to Wichita when they have vacation time unless it's to visit relatives. Who do they expect to come visit?

Secondly, why waste money on something like that when you could be using the money to help so many worthwhile causes.

Third, (and this would be a view of a sane anti-choice person of which there are so few) why not put that money into something that's actually going to stop abortion?

They're not following any Bible I know, and they're not even logically following their own beliefs. They're just combining a holier-than-thou attitude with a five-year-old's, "Look at me! Look at me! Look at me!" personality.

10. God forbid they should use that money to you know - help someone.

Because that might be something Christ would do. Nope - instead they're gonna build an extravagant monument to the fundamentalist Taliban-esque insanity that has engulfed our country. Fuck the pro lifers. Seriously.

Those idiots at that church are fucking insane.
