I’m not sure I share her passion for preventing biology classes from dissecting worms and frogs, but I have to admire Jennifer Thornburg’s tenacity. So committed is she to ridding science class dissections from schools she has actually legally changed her name to raise awareness about her cause.
Her new name? Cutout Dissection.com.
It’s true. At her website (again . . . this is also her name), you can see her driver’s license and hear her story. I’ll leave it to you to decide if her cause is worthwhile. What strikes me is simply her determination to let her name equate to her cause, which begs a most uncomfortable question of you and me: Do we who claim the name “Christian” demonstrate the passion, faithfulness and integrity that this name demands?
