It isn’t often that I disagree with Elizabeth Scalia on a matter of religion but this story is one of them.
For the few who don’t know. At the Texas capital as the new Abortion bill comes up for a vote a group of pro-life activists starting singing the traditional song Amazing Grace.
However the supporters of Wendy Davis and abortion were not to be outdone. Last weekend on every Sunday Show they the pro-abortion left lionized Wendy Davis and talked about her fight against Governor Rick Perry. Their supporters and Democrats around the country urged their supporters to show up and the Texas capital and fight. So when the pro-lifes sang Amazing Grace the flower of the Democrat Party, these brave warriors of the left, these people determined to prevent people from oppressing woman, fully supported by the national left replied thus:

Hail Satan? Really, as American Glob put it:
Maybe the makers of the History Channel’s Bible series were on to something after all…
Well I’m not convinced. The CNN Reporter MUST be wrong. Where is the video, I’m sure the Democrat National Campaign Committee, Emily’s List, Planned Parenthood, Media Matters and NOW will emulate the late Andrew Breitbart’s $100,000 challenge to produce actually video to back up this CNN reporters statement:
Now the Anchoress being a kindhearted and godly person says this:
You get a gang of already pumped up, hysterical (and in some cases terribly, terribly young) idolators fully indoctrinated to the creed and the church of the Idol-of-I, and start singing “Amazing Grace” you’re striking at a jugular vein of the idol and the hysterics — having nothing to fall back on but the empty creed of self-worship, which contains no grace at all — have no depth in their recourse. All they have left in their bag of tricks is shock and chaos.
Last night they fell back on “shock.” Chaos will come later, and believe me, a mindless, stupidly spiteful chanting of “hail Satan” won’t be the half of it.
They know not what they do, though — very likely those who are not being paid to be useful idiots for The Party are members of The Church of What’s Happening Now, who can’t resist an urge to participate in this week’s “be-in”.
and advises the following:
Which is why I rather concur with this guy on Twitter:
Wow, the “hail Satan” thing is such a troll. Make fun of it or ignore it. No good can come of making a big deal out of it.

I respect Elizabeth very much, but I have to disagree.
One of the things that our friends on the left have done for a long time is dodge just what abortion is, what it means and who it serves ask yourself why you can see all kind of medical procedures on TV but never abortion, why nothing engages the left more than the graphic pictures of the same.
It’s because it illustrates the truth of what abortion is and what it has always been.
In my opinion it is important to not allow our pols or these groups off the hook.
Every single reporter and every single pol who pushed Wendy Davis, who celebrated Wendy Davis and who urged people to go out and support Wendy Davis be made to distance themselves from the statements of these protesters. They should be made to stand or run as the GOP was made to do with Todd Akin.
Well…points for accuracy “@AbbyJohnson: Abortion supporters are in the rotunda yelling "hail satan." Seriously.”

This is life and death, literally let’s act this way.
I’ll give the last word to Captain Ed Morrissey:
The overall effect of chanting “Hail Satan”? That’s another story, but one of those effects is surely clarity.
