American Evangelicals Confront Birth Control (MP3)
Dr. Alan Carlson & Steve Wood Available in CD
Are you concerned about Obamacare’s conscience-violating requirement that Catholic employers pay for abortifacients – drugs that cause abortion, voluntary sterilization, and other forms of illicit birth control?
Our society is in a moral meltdown and few seem to know how to stop it. This message proposes a real long-term solution, but not an easy one.
Did you know that the last time in America that Christians successfully confronted birth control, the fight was led by Evangelical Protestants?
In a nutshell, to win the current fight against Obamacare’s birth control mandate, we are going to need a strong Evangelical and Catholic coalition against birth control – not just a coalition against Obamacare, but a real, vital, deeply held opposition to birth control itself. Freedom rallies and political opposition to Obamacare’s mandate are not nearly as strong as a deeply held religious conviction – the stuff that makes for societal producing salt that isn’t trodden under foot by men.
Hoping that Evangelicals will confront birth control isn’t pie-in-the-sky wishful thinking. It’s a part of Evangelicals own 20th century history. The problem is that Evangelicals have forgotten this vital chapter of their own history.
Steve Wood’s interview with Lutheran historian, Dr. Allan Carlson, reopens a chapter of American history that can’t be forgotten. The information in this message provides the necessary foundation for a religious coalition based on strong moral convictions (not just political ones) for a repeal of Obamacare’s birth control mandate.
