However, for one man - maybe and we dont know his motivations for sure - the sight of Tiller the Killers handiwork may have been just too much.”
Yes, Operation Rescue’s statement is important and consistent with their work throughout the last 2 decades. Non-violent civil disobedience.
I just think your second comment about ‘for one man’ is not right. This ‘one man’ needed to consider the broader movement and how this will affect our message with the whole society. How it will negatively affect our ability to win the hearts and minds of young people and to maintain the gains we’ve had in pro-life education that has finally seen those who identify themselves as a greater number than those that ID themselves as ‘pro-choice.’
Do you suppose this ‘one man’ thought all that through before he pulled the trigger? Do you think he pondered and meditated on the Scripture that tells us that ‘in the presence of many counselors, there is wisdom?’ And if he did not seek the counsel of other trusted people - which I would BET he did not, then he just went ahead and said ‘screw the bigger picture, I will kill this guy.’ To me this is classic case of some guy who thought he’d become an ‘insta-hero’ putting himself and his small thoughts in front of the bigger picture and God’s own wisdom in Romans 12:19: “Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.”
How's that working out for them?
I see what you are saying.
Why do you think Muslims get liberals to obey them when they tell them to back off? Why do you think libearls feel free and a life cause to attack Christians?
I would say it is only “extreme” civil disobedience and even the death of a few abortionists that has dramatically reduced the number of docs will to go into the abortion industry. I think liberals could cause war like they did with slavery.
