Take this prayer to Office Depot!
You may have heard that an Office Depot in the Chicago area refused to make copies of my Prayer for the Conversion of Planned Parenthood and that the organization’s corporate office said it is policy not to require employees to print anything they find objectionable. Office Depot believes that my prayer calls for persecution of those who support, and perform, abortion.
Nothing could be further from the truth!
The prayer does not call for their persecution, but for their conversion, enlightenment, and salvation!
Here's what happened:
We have announced a national prayer campaign (www.PrayerCampaign.org) to bring an end to the evils of abortion and Planned Parenthood. I wrote several prayers that you can find at that website, and have urged people to pray and distribute them.
On August 20, 2015, Maria Goldstein placed her order for printing one of those prayers at the Office Depot in Schaumburg, IL. Ms. Goldstein was told by an Office Depot employee that the printing of her flyer was “restricted by corporate policy” and that her order would not be filled. Ms. Goldstein contacted the Office of the Chairman multiple times to discuss the company’s refusal to fill her order. Diane Demma from the Office of the Chairman stood up for the Office Depot employees’ refusal to print Ms. Goldstein’s flyer and offered no other alternatives.
So Ms. Goldstein has now secured the services of a law firm, the Thomas More Society, to defend her rights.
No reasonable person could find my prayer objectionable or threatening.
Office Depot’s actions are unreasonable, and stand in the way of loving and prayerful pro-life people carrying out the work of this movement.
That’s why I’m asking you to take direct action, because Office Depot still has the chance to make things right.
Let's challenge Office Depot all around the country by doing what Maria Goldstein did -- bring them the prayer to print!
