Ambiguous Bible supports causes

In her Jan. 27 letter, “Pray for nationwide end to abortion,” Donna Holman takes a quote from Psalms to support her position. If you continue reading Psalms, you would come across another quote dealing with children: “Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.” Psalms 137:9

Once again, the Bible proves to be so ambiguous and contradictory that a person can support just about any cause they desire with a selected quote from “The Good Book.”
