Reichstag Fire

I suspect there is a trail of acorns leading to a den of fellow-travelling anarchists at the end of the untimely bullet that tragically ended the tragic life of George Tiller.

This killing is the result of the rampant pro-choice mentality nurtured in this country for over 40 years: Sometimes you can end a life to solve a problem. The pro-life movement maintains you cannot kill somebody to achieve whatever good objective you are trying to achieve.

Human Life International has documented more than 8,519 acts of violence and illegal activities by pro-abortionists. These crimes include:

* 1,251 homicides and other killings
* 157 attempted homicides
* 28 arsons and firebombings
* 904 assaults
* 1,908 sex crimes (including 250 rapes)
* 106 kidnappings
* 420 cases of vandalism
* 290 drug crimes
* 1,616 medical crimes

The Christian response to abortion providers and their staff has always been that they might establish an audience or camaraderie with people who have been in the same place like Bernard Nathanson and the Society of Centurions. Indeed, I asked my priest to offer an intention for the repose of George Tiller's soul at our 2 PM Latin Mass today that God would extend more charity and mercy to Tiller than he extended to God's children developing in the womb.


Ezekiel 18:23,32
Do I indeed derive any pleasure from the death of the wicked? says the Lord GOD. Do I not rather rejoice when he turns from his evil way that he may live? For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone who dies, says the Lord GOD. Return and live!


1 Timothy 2:1-4
First of all, then, I ask that supplications, prayers, petitions, and thanksgivings be offered for everyone, for kings and for all in authority, that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life in all devotion and dignity. This is good and pleasing to God our savior, who wills everyone to be saved and to come to knowledge of the truth.
