What about the guy who shot him? I'll bet dollars to donuts that he'll have claimed to have found Christ. I wouldn't dare judge either's claim to knowing Christ.
I do know this...people who know Christ sin every day.
It will be used to discredit the prolife cause and will be held up as proof that prolifers=terrorists.
Yes, upthread someone said Tiller’s previous church, which was LCMS, excommunicated him.
Strange that he felt a need to join another Lutheran Church, however liberal.
But then Wichita had another infamous killer, Dennis Rader, who was a faithful member of a Lutheran congregation.
My condolances and I’m sorry for the self-righteousness of some of our peers here.
But that's it.
“With the number of Freepers taking the high road on this thread, by now somebody must be suffering from hypoxia.”
There is no doubt of this. That's a big part of why this is bad. This is a dark day for the pro-life movement.
“We need to change our society, not vigilante justice on a Sunday morning...this guy needed the electric chair, not a vigilante’s bullet.”
Justice was subverted a long time ago.
“Unsupported vigilantism sets back the pro-life message and movement.”
Does it really matter? its not like the MSM is suddenly going to decide to support abortion because of this. They already think every pro-life person is a terrorist.
I think I may know you, I’m here in Kechi. Believe me I agree with everything you are trying to point out here. When I heard the news around noon, I was not surprised in the least.
But I’m terribly saddened because now we’re about to head into another national discussion we won’t win or persuade anyone. Maybe I’m just too jaded with cynicism to believe any other outcome. Our nation is dripping in blood and we who are on the right side of the life debate can’t even agree with each other about anything. Our nation as a whole doesn’t even agree anymore about the most basic foundation of human morality.
Chaos is here, chaos is coming and, frankly it’s an awesome thing to behold while you’re feeling absolutely helpless to do anything. Only God can save us, but I don’t feel his presence anymore, nor believe His protective hand is on our nation anymore. We’ve turned our backs and now the retribution is at hand.
Yeah, I saw the movie (in 1941 too) and have always wondered “what if?”
I also remember a “60 Minutes” story about police snipers that opened with an off-camera voice saying “there are people who need to be shot.”
If we had known in 1939 what we know now, anyone who had ‘offed’ Hitler would be a hero. For that matter, many of our Revolutionary War heros are still considered villians in Britain. Future history is a very difficult subject and one that no one can really know. Perhaps this man who shot Tiller will be hailed as a hero in the future. Right now though, he’s in deep doo-doo.
Pro-aborts will use it against the pro-life cause. if you are saying it will not turn a pro-lifer into a pro-abort, i agree with you. But there is no way this is good for the pro-life cause, even with the world being rid of the abortionist, it can potentially set back the pro-life cause.
Where is that HIDEOUS PHELPS FAMILY from??
I believe that church was ELCA as well and he was an elder, not a Pastor.
But, my rememberer isn’t as good as it used to be!
sorry...not with you on this one...
I have no sympathy for his shooting..zero
“It will be used to discredit the prolife cause and will be held up as proof that prolifers=terrorists”
Sounds like a hate crime if they do.
Oh please. The "god told me to..." defense will still get you the chair.
