Why both Abortion and Racism are Blasphemous

I believe my pastor has talked about both! :-)

But I think one of the reasons that evangelicals talk more about abortion than racism is because there is something of a public concensus on the issue and racial discrimination has been addressed in various ways in the legal system. Abortion, on the other hand, is legal and "acceptable" in some sense. So there's a sense that, while racism exists, it is more of a private evil, while abortion rights are enshrined in our legal system.

Having said that, I would agree that evangelicals are probably more vocal in opposition to abortion than they were ever vocal in support of the Civil Right movement.
