(Child Murderer) Tiller shot dead in church this morning
Breitbart ^ | May 31, 2009 | unknown

Posted on 05/31/2009 11:13:09 AM PDT by jmaroneps37

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Media outlets are reporting that late-term abortion doctor George Tiller has been shot and killed at his church in Wichita, Kan.

Anonymous police sources told The Wichita Eagle other media that the 67-year-old doctor was killed Sunday morning at Reformation Lutheran Church.

Police spokesman Gordon Bassham would not confirm the victim's identity pending notification of relatives but said a 67-year-old "high-profile individual in the community" was shot and killed.

Tiller has been among the few U.S. physicians performing late-term abortions. His clinic has repeatedly been the site of protests for about two decades and he was shot and wounded by a protester in 1993.

This will go down as a very dark day in the pro life fight. All of us will be painted as the murderers they really are.

What kind of “church” welcomes a partial-birth baby killer into its congregation?

Sadly, this is not suprising, considering this is a repeat of history when in the years leading up to the Civil War, there was also the violence that was associated with the efforts to end slavery.

It was a dark day for George Tiller.

The pro-life movement isn't damaged by his death.

It was the actions of the aboritonist Tiller that ultimately led to his death.

I am NOT sorry that this murdering POS is dead. Now he faces God’s justice.

Tiller in church- what kind of church?

Whoever killed this doctor did the wrong thing here. We are supposed to let God judge him.

On the other hand... I am wondering what kind of person thinks it is OK to kill late-term babies and still go to church?

re: the run up to the civil war.

Yes, shame there weren’t men like Obama around then that could have helped us find the “middle ground” on slavery. Maybe tax breaks to let the slaves get educated. Limits on the number of new slaves that can be brought to America.
Tax credits for actually freeing a slave. Maybe a slave lottery where once a month a slave drawn at random gets freed. Obama would have sought this middle ground........

Do not let the media drive the agenda!!

Proximity does not equal causality.

At least wait to find out if the person who shot him was not angry about some failed business deal or jilted lover or etc. before you assume it was about abortion.

There is no way to tell how many skeletons (literal and figurative) a fellow like that has in his closet.

Best regards,

This is bad. The Clinton presidency was on the road to utter failure when
the Oklahoma City bombing occurred. He used that event to regain
his footing. For sure, this will be used against pro-life people.

OK FOLKS...it is now time to come together on the “right”. As much as I do not like it when someone is killed, Tillers death is not what I am addressing here. The left will use this against the right (we are bad, terrorist, extremist, etc.). Our job is not to play defense, it is to NOT ALLOW them to box us in to begin with. You know they will try to lump us all together with the shooter. Be vigilant. Do not allow them to categorize us as one in the same!!! You now know how the game will be played, stand firm.

It is appointed unto man once to die and after that the judgment.

It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

To think that Doctor Tiller spent his short time here on earth as a paid assassin and now faces eternity having never come to Christ. What a horrible, horrible waste.

I guess when God told us to seek Him while He may be found He wasn't joking.

An extremely liberal ELCA church. Do not think that all Lutheran churches would have an active, impenitent abortionist as a member in good standing. This Lutheran pastor (LCMS) would not.

I have prayed outside of Tiller's....however...this isn't what I would pray for. An attack in a church in front of women and children, no matter how guilty in the eyes of the world, is inexcusable. I consider myself anti-abortion, not pro-life, Tiller was guilty in my mind of many murders. This will make many who believe in the power of peaceful prayer...murder suspects.

Police said they are looking for white male who was driving a 1990s powder blue Ford Taurus with Kansas license plate 225 BAB. The vehicle is registered to an owner in Merriam, which is in the Kansas City area.

Another article says a man in his 50s to 60s.

Killing Tiller was not only murder, it was stupid and counter-productive. Once again, all abortion opponents will be branded by the MSM as murderers and religious fanatics.

That said, I believe the crooked politicians and lawyers who took Tiller's bribes and allowed him to stay in “business” are partly responsible for his death. If they had put him out of his horrible business like the should have, he'd be alive.

On the positive side Tiller now really knows, without question, whether God considers abortion murder or not. At least for him the question has been answered.

Sorry, but making him into a martyr does not help the pro-life side. Be wise as serpents and gentle as doves, Jesus said. This was not wise or prudent. And it’s not wise or prudent to defend it.

I sincerely hope this was not the act of a Pro-lifer. I would also not very much like to be George Tiller as he faces the Living God. Forgiveness, though, is always a possibility. I will pray for his soul. I believe he will need it.

Please understand that there are several Lutheran denominations. I am a Lutheran pastor in The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS), but Reformation Lutheran Church is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) The ELCA is a typical liberal Protestant denomination, and like all liberal Protestant denominations is promotes a liberal secular agenda. It is pro-homosexual, pro-abortion, and anti-Scripture. The only thing Lutheran about ELCA is its name.
Having said this, remember that the church is full of sinners. I have no idea what Tiller's standing was in the congregation. I would hope that he repented of his sins and his involvement in murdering unborn children; otherwise, he is burning in Hell.

Stupid and senseless. This is never the way to promote the Pro Life cause. Murdering of this nature is wrong and only hurts the efforts to protect the unborn. Very counter-productive.

This will add fuel to the perverted fire at Homeland Security. The shooter will be regarded as a terrorist, and those of us who think abortion is murder will be considered fellow terrorists. The good thing that might come out of this is that some babies will live, providing their mothers don’t find another willing accomplice to murder. The rest seems bleak indeed.

Churches do have the responsibility of barring unrepentant members from services, and that would include preventing a professional murderer from attending. In a sense, an abortionist would be the equivalent of a pagan priest performing human sacrifices to the god Ba’al, in his many forms.

Agreed. ELCA might but LCMS would not.

A true, saving faith in Christ results in positive works pointing to Christ. It was good that Dr. Tiller heard the Gospel, but it seems as if he were not willing to act on the Gospel. He was like the man who saw blood on his hands in the mirror and instead of washing his hands, turned the mirror away.

If this was done to prevent an abortionist from killing further, I would call this misguided zeal. The worst mass murderer of his time became Saint Paul. It is better not to kill, but to pray for reform. If the person will not reform, it is right to resist his evil. I draw the line at counter-murder. We are not the government nor are we soldiers in a declared war.
