-Discrimination? Office Depot Refuses to Print a Pro-Life Prayer

by Dr. D ~ September 12th, 2015


UPDATE: Office Depot has apologized for not printing the pro-life prayer flier.

Office Depot refused to print copies of a pro-life prayer that a Christian woman wanted to distribute to her church. The flier directed folks to pray for the conversion of employees and staff working for Planned Parenthood. Here’s the story from The Blaze:

Maria Goldstein, 42, ordered 500 copies of “A Prayer for the Conversion of Planned Parenthood” from an Office Depot location just outside Chicago…

But, Office Depot refused to fill Goldstein’s order.

A spokeswoman for the retail giant, Karen Denning, told the Chicago Tribune company policy prohibits “the copying of any type of material that advocates any form of racial or religious discrimination or the persecution of certain groups of people. It also prohibits copying any type of copyrighted material.”

“The flier contained material that advocates the persecution of people who support abortion rights,” Denning reportedly added.

Goldstein, however, said the material wasn’t meant to persecute anyone, but instead change hearts.

“The intention of the prayer is to ask for conversion,” Goldstein told the Chicago Tribune. …

Response: Are prayers for the conversion of others with opposing ideas now considered to be persecution? Apparently Office Depot officials think so. But who do you think was really being persecuted or discriminated against in this case?

If pro-life folks pray for Planned Parenthood folks is that really tantamount to persecution? Condemning precatory prayers might qualify but an actual prayer for people and supporting conversion? No.  Jesus called Christians to pray for those who oppose them.

Also prayers are one of the greatest weapons of believers because prayer does change things and most of the time it actually changes the very ones who are offering the prayers and gives them supernatural love for those they are praying for.

We are now living in a time when Christian printers have been fined for refusing to produce flyers promoting gay pride parades and same–sex marriage materials. However, do not expect Office Depot to get in trouble in this case for ‘discriminating’ against a Christian. The cultural tide has changed in this country and conservative Christian views are no longer looked upon as favorably as they used to be.

Don’t look for it to get any better any time soon unless a major revival or a new awakening comes to America. Just keep on praying regardless. But always remember, our real enemy is not flesh and blood.            *Top
