A Kansas doctor who performs abortions was murdered today at his church. I’ll leave it to others to discuss the long history of this doctor’s part in the abortion debate; what I want to show you today is the transparent lies told by the murderous group Operation Rescue.
“We are shocked at this morning’s disturbing news that Mr. (sic) Tiller was gunned down,” anti-abortion group Operation Rescue said in a statement on its Web site. “Operation Rescue has worked for years through peaceful, legal means, and through the proper channels to see him brought to justice. We denounce vigilantism and the cowardly act that took place this morning. We pray for Mr. Tiller’s family that they will find comfort and healing that can only be found in Jesus Christ.”
What a steaming pile of crap. What do they mean, “see him brought to justice?” Did he violate any laws? If OR really wanted to “work through…legal means” they would focus on legislation, rather than bringing to justice someone who has not broken any laws. This type of rhetoric shows the violent, murderous thinking behind OR. Oh, I’m so glad they pray for Dr. Tiller’s family to find peace in their Lord, the one who they say is the only route to comfort, the one they think would approve of murdering a doctor.
Anyone who can’t see through the transparent approval of this murder, justified by a “greater cause” and the belief in a vengeful god and an afterlife is being intentionally blind. OR is a domestic terrorist group and should be treated as such.
