(ProLifeCorner.com) – A large school bus, owned by Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Academy, that is well known throughout Rockford for its beautiful pro-life pictures and words asking people to “pray to end abortion”, was fire bombed on Friday night. The damage was extensive to the bus as windows were broken in on both sides and fire bombs were thrown inside to cause maximum damage.It has been speculated that this bombing of a pro-life Christian school bus is in retaliation for the closing of the Rockford abortion mill that is located not far from where the school bus was attacked.

This shows just how committed they are to their cause, the question is will we stay the course.

But the more violent they become, the stronger we will become.

And the stronger we become the more violent they become.

It's a vicious cycle and that cycle of violence must be broken!

This school is run a tight budget. IF the bus is insured against vandalism/sabotage, the insurance rates will go up. The school can't really take that kind of hit.

Small class sizes, traditional Catholic morality, lay run, academically oriented, low tuition, financial-aid for those who need it, means a great school run on a very tight budget. Oh, and one of their top teachers is the wife of a Freeper.

Terrorism, pure and simple, every law enforcement agency should be all over this. Leftists are insane.

Everybody is suspect in this one ~ could be one of the deranged people who are part of the GOP~e, a Democrat, an abortion rights type, ~ there are so many to pick from. However we have to be realistic here. The last time we had a Conservative on the national ticket, these same people tried to burn down one of Sarah Palin's former church homes.

The Left has a stable full of mad bombers.

This is actually a good time to just go with Occam's Razor. Wayne Webster, who owns the abortion mill building (a 100 year old Elementary School) acts flaky enough (even for a someone running an abortion operation) to be ultimately behind it (though the actual firebombing could have been done by J. Random hired-druggie). He has friends in the police department, too.

Given that the mill is located in a crime ridden section of Rockford, sharing the corners with two buy-here pay-here lots and "Bobby's on Broadway" Pawn Shop, it wouldn't be hard to find someone anonymous to do this on the cheap.

The local lefty daily newspaper, the Rockford Register Star, didn't even see fit to report it.

“It’s a vicious cycle and that cycle of violence must be broken!”

“A people unwilling to use extreme violent force to obtain or preserve their libery deserves the tyrants that rule them”. stockpirate

so no, violence must be met with something stronger.

Do not forget that several terrorists were arrested plotting to bow up the Republican convention building the night Sarah was to give her speech.

Cops LOVE sweet overtime gigs “protecting” slime like this ... sitting on a lawn chair warning the protestors to keep their distance. Being that this is 60 miles west of Chicago you can bet that the PD is union and in the bag for rats and rat causes.

Commonly known as Molotov Cocktails ,a glass bottle filled with a flammable liquid , corked then has a rag wick attached around the top of the bottle . To deploy simply light the wick & throw at target.

I was the head of the school board of a small Catholic school so I understand what you mean. I was just pointing out that violence and vandalism does not necessarily affect those who are the would be targets.

the balloon heads who do things like this, more often than not, affect people who might be their own insurers....We buy the school a $150,000 bus...and YOUR rates go up...brilliant!!!!

Yet, this would have been all over the MSM for at least two or three days if it had been an abortion clinic that was firebombed.
