Why you shouldn’t walk out of church if you’re angry
In the wake of the Supreme Court decision that overturned Roe v. Wade, abortion-rights supporters protested on social media and public spaces, as expected. Some also voiced their displeasure by walking out in the middle of church services when pastors spoke in favor of the ruling.
These single-person protests were evident not only in my own church, a Catholic parish in the suburbs of Boston, but also on social media. On Twitter, some people said that they had walked out during a service; some encouraged others to do so.
