Seems as though the long arm of the law has encircled a suspect in Sunday’s fatal shooting of a Dr. George Tiller while the physician was serving as usher in his church:
Scott Roeder, 51, of Merriam….was once a subscriber and occasional contributor to a newsletter, Prayer and Action News, said Dave Leach, an anti-abortion activist from Des Moines who runs the newsletter. Mr. Leach said that he had met Mr. Roeder once, and that Mr. Roeder had described similar views to his own on abortion.
Commenting on Dr. Tiller’s death, Mr. Leach said, “To call this a crime is too simplistic.” He added, “There is Christian scripture that would support this.” NY Times
I don’t doubt that for a nanosecond. Advocates of every perverse cause and activity you can name have cited Christian scripture to support their nasty little foibles and practices, so why not cowardly cold blooded murder? Why, even our former President, a devout Christian himself, seemed to be okay with waterboarding and other forms of torture, at least when applied to non-Christians. Besides, any fool knows that assassinating an abortionist in a church isn’t nearly as morally repulsive as an Islamoterrorist detonating a suicide bomb.
This wasn’t the first violence endured by Dr. Tiller. In 1993, an assailant put bullets in both his arms, his clinic was bombed and otherwise vandalized often, and he’s had to defend himself in court against government as well as private harassers almost continuously. He’s stopped more shots than a Stanley Cup goalie, although this one should is the game-ender.
The incident underlines the obvious but infrequently mentioned truth about the so-called Pro-Life camp: they’re really not. They go ga-ga for fetuses, of course, but once that slippery wet mammaloid gets squirted out, well, it’s just not their problem anymore. Unless, of course, it grows up and becomes an abortion doctor. Then it’s gotta die. Says so right there in the Good Book, it does.
So really, this shouldn’t be called a “murder” or “homicide.” Strictly speaking, it’s not really “killing.” It’s administering Divine Justice by god’s angels on earth, an inspired martyr sacrificing himself out of pure, unselfish love for his fellow fetus makers. He has removed a demon from the earth. God bless him, his handgun, and his holy crusade. The Blessed will pray for his gun slinging immortal soul.
Just don’t call this execution a very-late term abortion. No, they wouldn’t approve of that.
