Requiem for George Tiller

I came home from church today to the news of the killing of Dr. George Tiller. I am still reeling, tonight, from this news. This violent act is to be stongly condemned. There are absolutely no circumstances under which this act can be condoned. The chasm between the pro-life and pro-abortion camps will never be narrowed by acts such as this. While I do not mourn his death, I also cannot condone his murder.

There are so many lenses through which this act can be viewed, but none shed a good light on it. It is ironic that Dr. Tiller was killed in his church during a time when he was participating in services there. It is ironic that Dr. Tiller died in a violent manner, just as countless fetuses were violently killed in his clinic with no one to stand up for them. It is sad that Dr. Tiller left this life unrepentant for the life he chose to live and the acts he chose to commit. It is reprehensible that his life ended in this way. It matters not that my views are completely opposite to his, taking of his life does nothing to further the cause of either side of this highly charged argument.

It is a sad day when violence is used to further or justify any cause.

  1. Obama said, "However profound our differences as Americans over difficult issues such as abortion, they cannot be resolved by heinous acts of violence." --If Obama only cared that much about the countless babies who died at the hands of that abortionist...

    A family member said, "Today we mourn the loss of our husband, father and grandfather. Today's event is an unspeakable tragedy for all of us and for George's friends and patients. This is particularly heart wrenching because George was shot down in his house of worship, a place of peace." Wow, how about the wombs that all of those babies were in? The womb is supposed to be a safe place of peace for a baby. But that monster would intrude and kill each one of them, with no remorse.

    And I do not feel sorry for a family who loved a murderer. And I sure do NOT feel sorry for a church that had no problem allowing a murderer to attend.
