From Operation Rescue's statement:

"...We denounce vigilantism and the cowardly act that took place this morning."

Do you....or anybody else on this thread agree that this shooting was a 'cowardly act'

One idiot doesn't represent all pro-lifers.

We pro-lifers know that, but just imagine what the average Joe or Jane American might conclude, after listening to the MSM 24/7 over the next week, smearing ALL of us, because of this murder's actions.

So, whats your point? If we had a chance, we would have blown him up, just like we did his sons. Instead, we found him cowering in a rat hole! He is Dead and now so is Tiller! and quite frankly there isn’t much diference between the two.

I’m celebrating that the planet has one less mass murderer. We have a new murderer, but at least he’s apparently in custody. Sounds like a net gain for good.

“Not when it’s done with evil and unlawful means. “

I don’t know about evil as I don’t know the killer or his motives. I would not have done the same but can’t say killing someone who had murdered 60,000 people is evil.

Unlawful? As I’ve stated earlier I don’t think the US is a nation of laws anymore. Its a nation of who has the best lawyers and political power, which happens to be marxist/facist right now. Technically the killing was unlawful but so is what much of what Congress has done lately.

The ‘law’ has been subverted by evil. When the law is immoral and contrary to Gods law are we bound to follow it?

“Murder is wrong, no matter who the victim might be.”

All killings are not murder.

“And if you’ll notice, many of those who are decrying this action are doing so from the standpoint of how the pro-life movement might be hurt by it”

I don’t agree with that viewpoint. I don’t think it will help or it will hurt. The pro-abortionists already think every pro-life person is a terrorist so how will this make any difference?

Hussein was captured, tried, convicted and executed according to the law.

That took way too long, though. If someone is unquestionably guilty of many murders, that person should be put to death ASAP, IMHO. The idea that trials are necessary 100% of the time is a bit disturbing and defies common sense.

I think even the mod's are upset at how sympathetic some posters are, as they've added "Child Murderer" (in parentheses) to the headline. I don't remember seeing that before.

Do you think, seriously, that killing George Tiller is going to stop further abortions taking place? Because if you do, you are going to be sadly disappointed. He was an instrument of abortion, not its cause. The social and moral conditions that enable abortion existed while he was alive and they still exist now. All that will happen is that someone else will do the abortions at that clinic now, and you can transfer all your moral disgust to them if you like.

Abortion on-demand happens because the technology exists to do it, and the personal moral integrity that says “I didn’t plan this child, but now its happened I cannot selfishly destroy a Human life for my own convenience” hasn’t caught up with it. The way to close abortion clinics is to make them obsolete by presenting the pro-life argument so irrefutably that no one wants to use them.

Thanks
This one is hitting home with me.
I feel like a helpless observer, even though Tiller has played a huge role in my life.
What I understand, and say, is sometimes repulsive to those who have not walked in my shoes.
Even though I am NOT ready for violence, they are repulsed that I show sympathy for those who are not as patient as me.

I fully understand those who are not on the same page as me, and I am trying hard to help them “speed read”!

People need to catch up!

There is little time left to argue amongst ourselves!

The same thing they would have said anyway, that pro-lifers are terrorists.

The average Joe or Jane has already heard this. No offense but I think you worry too much about what other people think.

The action was wrong but not worth all the hand wringing.

I’m not sympathetic to Tiller. I certainly can’t mourn his passing.

But pro-life has to include moral opposition to murder.

‘The way to close abortion clinics is to make them obsolete by presenting the pro-life argument so irrefutably that no one wants to use them.”

Other peaceful tactics are to buy the abortionist building and evict them. Or expose their illegal methods to the light and get them closed down.

Those two tactics are much more efficient.

I freaked out when I was reading all the people expressing false sorrow at the sight of a dead Tiller the Killer.

They said we should all do it because the media will smear us if we don’t. No matter what we do the left’s media will smear us so we might as well be true and honest about the stiff. Bill O will smear us for to put himself in our attention in hopes of expanding his audience.

But this time Bill O got caught being honest! He permitted one of Tiller’s victims to go tell the public what Tiller actually does to children and mothers. In a lapse of truth, he is the one who accurately named it “tiller the killer”!

Not sure which post you are referring to. If its the one I think, I was responding to a posters comment about how FR has a different tone these days.

For example lately I’ve noticed a lot of very outrageous posts usually referencing some blog.

“No, he could have repented at an unscheduled time on a Sunday. “Unscheduled” is the key word.”

Asking repentance for a sin that you have not forsaken is a waste of time. Not saying you could make the same mistake but if you are an abortionist it does no good to ask gods forgiveness until you have stopped being an abortionist.

And even with Gods forgiveness you will still be judged for your sins.

...nor the EVIL perpetrated by the man who murdered him.

I do not consider the person who took Tiller's life (sorry, I can't use the word "murder" in this instance), to be "evil."

"Evil" is far too vicious a word to use to describe someone who we (as of right now) know nothing about.

On the other hand, we sure know a lot about Tiller's past.

tiller was the most egregious of his ilk. and he was a rallying point of the left.

his death will enhance his image to them, but will put an end to his specific brand of mass murder.

The shooting of George Tiller may have been cowardly but one day of killing an abortionist hardly equates to the cowardliness and evil of making A LIFELONG PROFESSION out of killing the unborn.

It’s not a matter of FEELING pure and smug. Nice try—the old “you’re just a purist, I’m a down and dirty pragmatist.”

Look, I am arguing that both in terms of principle and pragmatism it was stupid to kill Tiller, if indeed it was done by someone opposed to his abortion business.

The Hutchinson case has nothing to do with this one—it’s a useless analogy—unless my opposition to killing Tiller was merely a matter of prissy purism.

But it’s not. It’s a matter of hard-headed realism about the struggle we are in. And hard-headed realism says killing Tiller was a stoooooooooppppppiiiiiiddddd for a prolifer to do.

Perhaps it wasn’t done by a prolifer. But even then it will be blamed on us. We lose no matter what. And drawing that conclusion is utterly realistic.

The legacy of abortionist George Tiller will live on: "This baby looks pretty good, I'm sorry that the baby had a lot of problems. But it did." - abortionist George Tiller, handing a photo of a dead late-term fetus he had aborted to pro-choice legislator Ruby Gilbert during a tour of his late-term abortion clinic, "Tours provide insight into abortion", The Wichita Eagle, October 7, 1997

"We have some experience with late terminations; about 10,000 patients between 24 and 36 weeks and something like 800 fetal anomalies between 26 and 36 weeks in the past 5 years." - abortionist George Tiller, declaring his pro-choice credentials in a speech to the National Abortion Federation, April 2-4, 1995, New Orleans, LA.

May God have mercy upon us all.

Still have not seen your answers to the questions at post #702.

Alright already what's your dang hurry, your post is not the only post on here to be gleaned? Everyone has a different calling, however I surmise it's not an easy thing to give up your life for a cause you believe in, most of us other than those in the military have not had to confront that.

Let's just say for the sake of brevity that during the Civil War there were 2 opposing sides willing to fight and die for what they believed in. These days with a situation that's much worse I'm afraid only one side is willing to fight and die for what they believe in, and suffice to say, it's not ours.

Agreed. Even though I believe third trimester abortion (this guy’s specialty) is murder, we can neither condone nor celebrate his murder.

To now, we have lived in a Republic which is a government by the rule of laws. If those are the laws, it is our job to change them, not engage in vigilante justice.

“However, even if the shooter turns out to be a person with a history in a major prolife organization (doubtful)”

Doubtful, indeed! A true pro-life person does NOT go around murdering people...nobody should jump to any conclusions regarding the motives of the shooter when he hasn’t even been arrested!

“The Left has, through out history, killed, kidnapped, bombed and shot innocents who were only vaguely connected to the “White Establishment” or the “Military Industrial Complex” etc.”

IIRC all US Presidential assassins (and attempted assassins), with the possible exception of John Wilkes Booth, have been either Communists or anarchists.

The only cowards, IMO, per se....the mothers who choose to abort their fetus. Those are the cowards.

I had asked the question primarily because I don’t think it’s cowardly to take another person’s life. It would seem to me just the opposite. Facing the consequences, the shame...seems very courageous to me.

This shooter has given up his life too, for all intents.

I don’t condone the shooter of the doctor. I just understand how it could happen in today’s climate.
