LifeWay's "Pink Bible" Recall Shows Politics of AssociationDecember 28, 2011
Ethics Daily ran my latest article today, which is entitled "LifeWay's 'Pink Bible' Recall Shows Politics of Association." It covers the decision by the Southern Baptist Convention's publishing house to stop selling a special Bible--just two months after first publishing it. The Bible was partly a fundraiser for Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the largest breast cancer organization in the U.S. However, the Bibles were pulled because of complaints that Komen works with Planned Parenthood to provide breast cancer awareness services--a partnership that has helped screen thousands of women and detect nearly 200 cases of breast cancer. Even though none of the money was paying for abortions (and this is not a new relationship), LifeWay decided to end its partnership with Komen.
