YMCA refuses to disassociate from Planned Parenthood saying that they "take no position" on abortion. Lest we forget:
"...YMCAs are obligated by the national YMCA constitution to pay dues to the YMCA of the USA, adopt a non-discrimination policy, and uphold the mission 'To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.'"
Now, is it a Christian principle to take "no position" on abortion? And isn't helping Planned Parenthood, an organization fat off of dead children and emotional agony, sort of "taking a position"? Furthermore, isn't "no position" always really a position? Who was it that said "If you aren't for me, you're against me,"?
Imagine someone saying they take no position on what Hitler did to the Jews in WWII. How about "no position" on slavery? Would this be the admirable tolerance that so many liberals prize? Would this embody "Christian principles"? Aren't folks who say they take "no position" just fooling themselves?
