Lila Rose visits Planned Parenthood in Memphis TN

Lila Rose visits Planned Parenthood in Memphis TN.

The LA Times has an great article about Lila Rose that includes the information that she is working from the Saul Alinsky playbook Rules for Radicals:
They also found an unlikely source of inspiration: "Rules for Radicals," a handbook on grass-roots organizing by Saul Alinsky, a legendary left-wing activist who was an inspiration to President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Among Alinsky's most famous admonitions is one that O'Keefe said he and Rose took to heart: "Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules."

Let us pray they renounce "Rules For Radicals" as Saul Alinsky opens with,

"Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins -- or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom -- Lucifer."

And the quotation mentioned in the LA Times article goes on to add,

"Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules. You can kill them with this. They can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity."

There is always a grain of truth in most heresy, and that is what makes a heretical path so easy to follow.
