No article link, just headline
i PRAY he’s a jealous husband and not a right winger pro-lifer.
Best case scenario: father of one of Tiller’s victims.
This could hurt the Pro-life movement. scratch that, it WILL hurt the pro-life movement. But when government does not uphold the law, then the public must. I know it seems somewhat anarchic, but it is true.
Someone caught him taking from the offering plate, got upset and shot him.
...was there an Obama sticker on his car?
I hope the same thing, but at age 67, it’s not likely.
That was fast.
that was quick.
that was quick.
He ws serving as usher? So the shooting took place in the church, yet the shooter got away???
If there nis no conceal carry law, what else would you expect? I would imagine people were shocked and knowing Tiller, did not think anyone else was in danger.
All this madness took place in, what, an Episcopal church? But be sure the Catholic Church will wind up taking the blame.
June 29, 1994:
Dr. John Britton and James Barrett, a clinic escort, were both shot to death outside of another facility in Pensacola. Rev. Paul Jennings Hill was charged with the killings, received a death sentence, and was executed September 3, 2003.
December 30, 1994:
Two receptionists, Shannon Lowney and Lee Ann Nichols, were killed in two clinic attacks in Brookline, Massachusetts. John Salvi, who prior to his arrest was distributing pamphlets from Human Life International, was arrested and confessed to the killings. He committed suicide in prison and guards found his body under his bed with a plastic garbage bag tied around his head. Salvi had also confessed to a non-lethal attack in Norfolk, Virginia days before the Brookline killings.
January 29, 1998:
Robert Sanderson, an off-duty police officer who worked as a security guard at an abortion clinic in Birmingham, Alabama, was killed when his workplace was bombed. Eric Robert Rudolph, who was also responsible for the 1996 Centennial Olympic Park bombing, was charged with the crime and received two life sentences as a result.
October 23, 1998:
Dr. Barnett Slepian was shot to death at his home in Amherst, New York. His was the last in a series of similar shootings against providers in Canada and northern New York state which were all likely committed by James Kopp. Kopp was convicted of Dr. Slepian's murder after finally being apprehended in France in 2001.
I’m sure they would have been just as fast had it been a preacher
preaching against abortion who was killed. /s
Was he wearing a tie and have a badge saying Elder_____ ?
Kansas allows conceal carry, however we also have the No-GUN sign provision. I could go check the church and see if they have one of those signs.
Reformed Lutheran Church, not Episcopal Church...
A leftwing lutheran church.
That’s my guess but we don’t know and everyone is ASSuming that the killer is with the PRO-LIFE MOVEMENT!
The media will use this to attack pro lifers, no matter what the motive for the shooting was. The media will be joined by 0’s administration, and by a Congress that is just aching to pass more anti gun legislation. All pro lifers will be painted as terrorists waiting to strike.
Now this will really get interesting.
How ironic. Tiller shot and killed at his church.
Sounds like he was quite the hypocritical “Christian,” and whoever killed him was definitely not “prolife.”
Now that would be a horse of a different color.
Sounds like the guy was driving leisurely back home (probably at 70 or 80 mph)...
I guess so. I’m just thinking that someone would try to grab the shooter so he couldn’t run away. But that’s easy for me to say, sitting here in my living room.
Kansas turnpike speed limit is 70 to 75 depending on where you are.
Hmm. Kansas, eh? For some reason, Kansas is a spiritual ground zero of sorts for this issue. Sebelius, the Easter recess during her confirmation "hearing," and now this.
Mrs. Sebelius, you might want to consider the sacraments anew.
The “best case scenario” would be a completely random act of violence by someone who didn’t have a clue who is was killing, but I sincerely doubt that is the case.
In VA CCW is not allowed in church, courthouse, place that sells liquor for consumption on premises. (If you’re going hunting, go where the deer are unarmed)
WHY didn’t the killer WAIT til Tiller was alone...either going home from Church or sometime else. Seems STRANGE to kill him IN CHURCH with all the witnesses!
Those who stand up to use the to attack the pro-life movement better be careful who and what they defend in the process.
No such thing as a “right-winger pro-lifer”.
Admittedly there was zero justice in Kansas. Tiller owns the entire justice and political system here. Nearly every judge is in his back pocket.
We need to focus on what motivated him to kill Tiller? Why would a church going Dr. be murdered? Was there something about Tiller’s past that angered the killer? While the MSM will be demonizing the pro-choicers, there must a thorough and intensive background into Tiller’s past. The more that people know about Tiller the more likelihood it is that a motivation will be found.
A lot of posters are saying this will set pro-choice back years. Maybe. A lot will depend upon talk-radio. They need to meticuolously document Tiller’s choice of profession. They need to bring in women who might be stigamatized by their decision to see Tiller.
Tiller was killed. A suspect was apprehended. Now, it NOT the time go on defense, rather it’s the time to investigate Tiller’s past, and look for a reason someone would murder him.
I understand there might be 6,000+ reasons, but the vast majority don’t. Now’s the time to unveil who, Dr. Tiller was, and how he made his living.
Don’t you mean left-winger Pro-lifer?
I disapprove of what the killer did, but am I surprised that someone killed Tiller? Not at all and I have occasionally wondered why this did not happen sooner.
I could see why a misguided pro-life person killed him, especially if they had a strong-held position that abortion - and especially partial birth abortion - is murder.
No matter what, you can rest assured he will be indentified as with the Pro-life movement by the lamestream media.
The Kansas Turnpike in the 1960's used to have speed like of 80mph, I think. But that was too long ago to remember.
I was born in Great Bend, KS, so I have visited the state a few times to see relatives...
Tiller probably has hired body guards and may have not been very vulnerable anywhere but church.
Martin Sheen is pro-life and he is about as far left as you can get.
Some interesting Stats on Abortion:
1.3 million abortions are performed each year. (Source: Finer LB and Henshaw SK, Estimates of U.S. Abortion Incidence in 2001 and 2002, Alan Guttmacher Institute, 2005)
That’s 1.3 million dead American babies in one year.
How many since Roe v Wade?
49,551,703 Total Abortions since 1973
WHY didnt the killer WAIT til Tiller was alone...either going home from Church or sometime else.
The turnpike splits at Emporia, pay turnpike towards Topeka, free towards olathe/KC. Its still 70-75 on 35 there.
