    LOL one of the things from the assassination of Doctor Tiller that caught me off guard was part was filmed outside of a local hamburger place!

    I also watched the documentary about the assassination of Dr Tiller last night on Rachel Maddow’s show.

    I was taken back by the fact there were so many pictures of hateful-looking, shouting people who took it upon themselves to get in the patient’s face.

    And then when Tiller’s staff was talking about the harassment they, Dr. Tiller and his family went through – I just could not imagine having to live with that day after day.

    And then the thought came – these harassers are Christians? Where was the justice when the harassment was going on? Where was Dr. Tiller’s family and his staff’s freedom to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?

    For all those CINO (Christian in name only) harassers – they are just bullies and thugs.

    In my Bible, Jesus was NEVER a thug or bully.

    Perhaps these harassers need a remedial reading class or maybe they just need sit down and STFU.

    If they want to stop abortions, then why don’t they go after the men who are raping and/or committing incest to cause these pregnancies?

    Or would that be stepping on the wrong toes?

      “If they want to stop abortions, then why don’t they go after the men who are raping and/or committing incest to cause these pregnancies”

      Good question, but misdirected. Few abortions are because the pregnancies are from rape or incest.

      Mostly, for early abortions, it is a matter of lifestyle choice, or, finances. For late term, more complicated details come into play.

      However, you are right in many respects. Much of the stuff that happened at the clinic, and the harassment elsewhere, did not show Christianity in a very positive, or even scriptural, way. Those who participate misintrepret scripture, much in the way of the majority of Jews in the time of Christ. They had come to expect a Messiah of the physical realm, leading out of Roman occupancy, instead of a spiritual one. It is sometimes speculated that that was the reason Judas betrayed Christ. He thought he was “gonna have a revolution”.

  5. I didn’t learn anything new from watching last night but it brought up the sadness again. I didn’t want to finish to the end so turned it off.

    I wish there was as much passion for life after birth. I’m always struck with how important life is from conception to birth and then it seems the concern / worry / desire to save or help disappears for too many. The question about when life begins has never been settled. But one thing I know for absolutely sure is that after birth that is a person!

      I didn’t watch it. I don’t need to see it to be reminded of how cruel and judgmental people can be.

      Experience has shown me that it is better to end a pregnancy than it is to bring a child into the world when you can’t properly care for it.

      The fruit of a generation of girls that have been made to think that it is somehow morally right to bring babies into the world, whether you care for them or not, is upon us. Look around at all the children who are being cared for by someone other than their biological parents due to the message that the so-called pro-lifers have sewn into the fabric of society. What is the effect on the child of feeling abandoned and unwanted and what is the effect of so many of these injured souls on our society?

    This day in history…

    2001- The U.S. passes the USA Patriot Act into law.
