I'm very much pro-life, and from what I've heard of Tiller, he sounds like he's a real scumbag. That said though, I will never agree with or respect someone who thinks that committing cold blooded murder is the way to advance a political cause, even if it's a cause I believe in such as being pro-life.
As a Christian I wholeheartedly condemn the moron who murdered Tiller and hope his family obtains justice for the loss of their loved one. And I also hope those idiots who have an understanding attitude towards Tiller's murderer get their heads out of their rear ends and think about how this could affect the conservative movement.
Right now we have an administration and congress in Washington that's looking for any excuse to take away every freedom we have and squash our right of dissent. Not only will Obama and the left use this incident to paint all pro-lifers as nut job extremists who need to be monitored and shut down, but since the murderer used a gun, pro Second Amendment folks will be under the same government microscope as the pro-lifers. And if the drive-by media comes out with stories about the murderer being an avid listener of conservative talk radio, Obama and the rats will use this as an opportunity to take over media companies like Clear Channel, as they did with GM and Chrysler, in order to rid the airwaves of those who oppose their socialist agenda like Rush Limbaugh and other conservative hosts.
I believe abortion is the cruelest and most barbaric form of genocide the world has ever known and I would love nothing more than to see it ended immediately. But since I live in the real world and not an idealistic one, I believe the best way to end abortion is to change people's hearts and minds about the issue, and using the political process our founding fathers gave us to change the laws. Killing abortionists will not change any laws or win any hearts and minds in our favor.
Maybe God is out of patience.
First the airplane crash and now this.
So....if Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg was successful in assassinating Adolph Hitler, you would have agreed to have him shot be firing squad?
An imperious SCOTUS denied us that option in Roe v. Wade, shut off all debate and made half of all Americans into outlaws of conscience.
That's why the pressures are so enormous and dangerous. There is no release valve in the machinery of state.
