The Tiller Murder

I was going to post on Obama's ostentatious private jet soiree to New York City (after just telling the auto CEOs to "show some restraint") but the Tiller murder seems a more important story.

A suspect is in custody, who appears to be an engaged "Christian" in the abortion debate. But Debbie at Right Truth has the seminal comment on this whole thing:

NO, THIS IS NOT AN EXPRESSION OF 'PRO-LIFE', NEVER HAS BEEN, NEVER WILL BE. This is some nut criminal.

Exactly.

Christians should be prepared for an onslaught. Obama has weighed in and is outraged--as any president would be at the news of vigilantism--but this will also be used to justify that Napolitano Homeland Security report from a few weeks ago. People will likely be accusing Christians of being no different than terrorists, some even making moral equivalency arguments involving bin Laden. The best way to stop it is by joining the condemnation chorus and strongly reminding everyone this act was something Jesus would definitely NOT do or approve.

Thank you. It has already started, the pro-abortion folks blaming Christians. There was nothing Christian about the killing of Tiller, just like there was nothing Christian about Tiller killing unborn babies -- both were wrong.

There are nuts on both sides, I do not approve of some of the antics of some pro-life groups... They almost border on crazy. I believe in their mission, but I don't always approve of some of their tactics.

These kinds of incidents are a “gift” to BHO; he has already told us on numerous occasions that, in pursuit of Saul Alinsky’s sage advice, his administration will take advantage of every crisis. The murder of an abortionist allows this administration and congress to assault Christians, raise the warning flag about gun owners, determine that Napolitano was right about right-wing-extremists, and further justify why we need more government, not less.

You are both correct, but despite how the Alinskyites use this crisis it has to be a wake-up call to those who know they are going too far overboard in their thinking. Jesus told them to render unto Caesar, this means follow the government and work for change from within.

The far right cannot allow itself to lapse into the depravity shown by the Bush derangement syndrome folks because everyone knows the media will actually pay attention to the conservative version (after practically ignoring the "Bush is Hitler" crowd for 8 years). All part of Obama's plan to eliminate his competition.
