Just like Jesus would have done.

...right?

I'm assuming this was a anti-abortion nut that killed him. Why do they think it's OK to kill a already living and breathing person but it's just terrible to have a abortion???? I don't understand these nut-jobs.

It's justifiable to kill in defense of someone's life. They see doctors who perform abortions as serial killers. If you could stop a serial killer, wouldn't you?

No, I'd tell the authorities to do it. Street justice is no justice at all.

Wait, not every Christian acts like that? Well then, carry on.

And if the authorities told you that this particular serial killer was protected by the law? Because that's how those nutbars see abortion providers.

Man that's a disturbing read. Holier than thou plus batshiat crazy.

As for his death, that is just sad. However, it is nice the shooter carefully read the Bible and solved this problem the way Jesus would have done it, and gunned him down in cold blood.

coco ebert: Wait, not every Christian acts like that? Well then, carry on.

I doubt a majority of them will be saddened by this. They will be cheering the killer.

Relax people.
Doctors providing abortions and the people killing those doctors are both sacrificing their safety to do what they think is right, even when others would plague them with doubt.

You've gotta respect that.

"TILLER KILLER"
 
2009-05-31 12:59:25 PM
FTFA: Tiller's medical license could eventually be suspended or revoked by the board on the basis of the complaint.

Um, not so sure that will matter at this point.

This is really a tragedy. I can't think of anything more to say about it.

I'm pretty sure Jesus said something about turning the other cheek. Even if someone is killing others, or even if someone is killing you personally, isn't it better to let them kill you, with your morality intact? If you defend yourself and harm them, are you not committing a sin?
 
2009-05-31 01:10:55 PM
This is not typical. This has never happened before. It in no way represents how the fundies think. It's an isolated incident. It's not a pattern, and you're an ass if you presume that this is an inherent trait in United States fundamentalism.
 
2009-05-31 01:11:07 PM
Well, this insane religious wacko shooter has just undone any headway the Bush administration gained in the anti-freedom, pro-big government fight to make it harder to get an abortion.

Yeah, because fundies have never blown up abortion clinics before either.
 
2009-05-31 01:14:56 PM
This crap pisses me off. I get that he's a bad guy. I get that he does an evil thing. But Christ on a cracker, killing him makes you about as bad! Just because someone is a bad guy doesn't mean you have the right to blow his brains out. I would think that would be obvious.

And then there is the overall damage you do to the pro-life movement. People like me, a non-murderous pro-lifer (and why the hell do I even have to clarify that?), spend way too much time trying to distance ourselves from wackos like you. Every time one of you assholes does this, the pro-life movement is set back ten years. We had a Gallup poll a few weeks ago that said 51% of the country is now pro-life - how does today's news effect that? You're average American does not want to be associated with this crap.

Well, if you want to go with the Jesus quotes, there's Mark 9:42 -- "And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea."

Jesus never mentioned anything about bullets, though.

I'm fairly sure that fetuses are agnostic, if not outright atheist.

Why on earth would you defend this assassination? Are you crazy? Hurt in the head?

So...why didn't the so-called "pro-lifers" kill Bushiat & Co. for the senseless slaughter of tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis???

Just another example of conservative hypocrisy.

There is a logical consistency to it, imho.


Blastocysts are people just like you and me. People like this murder thousands of them every year.

If you had a chance to put a bullet in the head of a mass murdering baby butcher, and save countless lives in the process, wouldn't you take it?

Are you kidding? There are a SLEW of instances of violence, including murders, of abortion providers listed here. I don't think these attacks are orchestrated in any way, but it is most certainly how the Fundies think. Not one Fundie is lamenting this doctor's death.

BTW, if you have a string of "isolated incidents", all in the attempt at reaching a common goal, then, by default, you indeed have a pattern.

Abortion will never be made illegal in the US again. You may occasionally get some of the smaller states to ban it, briefly, at which points brave doctors will still perform it, illegally-- as will pimps and other criminals.

While I am glad that you are not going to personally kill abortion doctors, calling his actions 'evil' are part of what leads people to believe killing him is okay.

Do you oppose the death penalty and the war in Iraq? Do you support abortions performed to save women's lives? If not, you're not "pro-life," you're merely pro-forced-childbirth.

You could justify it to keep the church pure. That happens in the New Testament (Acts) with Ananias. I'm not Christian so I'm not 100% on it, but there seems to be a biblical justification for killing folks.

Right or wrong, they are just doing what they think is right. You can't really debate abortion, you either think it's a baby or a hunk of tissue. Aside from giving these guys a way to write us off morally, I don't see what we can do about it.

Maybe we could frame it like how the Jews didn't stop pagans from killing kids for Molech? There's gotta be something.

And you missed the abortion clinic bombings.
