Thumbs-ups vastly outnumber middle fingers at the Sioux Falls Life Chain

Yesterday there was a pro-life human chain across Sioux Falls. From 2 - 3 p.m., witnesses lined 41st Street, the major East - West axis of the city.

Our parish had a team there, including yours truly. We were at 41st & Louise, one of the busiest intersections in town. This was also rewarding because the abortion advocates had tried a demonstration there (using snarly, aggrieved college students from out of state), but it fizzled because of rain. It rained on the Life Chain, but we didn't leave.

A few of the enlightened, progressive types flipped us off, and some threw the F-bomb, but mostly we got supportive honks and thumbs ups.
