shall perish by the sword.” –Matthew 26:52b
George Tiller was a paid hitman, only with government protection: trained as a physician, Tiller took money to kill babies.
Today, sadly, Tiller was gunned down in the middle of a church service. Ironically, Tiller the Killer was a member of a congregation called “Reformation Lutheran Church”.
While I hope the gunman–or gunmen if there are multiple parties involved–are prosecuted appropriately, I have no sympathy for Tiller as it pertains to events on this earth. He killed babies for a living; that someone else snuffed him after he got to enjoy 67 years on this earth does not garner much empathy from me.
Still, I must admit, I do not wish his eternal fate–given that he was an unrepentant murderer until his last day on earth, the Scriptures are not terribly encouraging about his current disposition–on anyone.
UPDATE: And if you think I’m being rough, Vox Day has this:
Tiller should have been jailed and had his license revoked for the abortion-related midemeanors he blatantly committed; had justice been done then perhaps he would still be alive. Not that I care, as I wouldn’t shed any more tears for dead abortionists than I would for murdered concentration camp guards. And at his church? What sort of church that calls itself Christian allows a totally unrepentant man with the blood of many children on his hands to attend it?
It should be amusing to watch the pro-abortion camp go hysterical with fear over this, as they still hadn’t gotten over the previous round of abortionist shootings that ended over a decade ago. They know at heart that the issue will never be settled; the murder of unborn children will never, ever be acceptable to decent men and women. Abortionists have killed more Americans than every American military foe in history combined, so based on the body count alone, the post-natal termination of an abortionist is more rationally justifiable than the killing of a jihadist in Iraq or Afghanistan.
As for the National Review’s comment, calling this news “sick”, the only front on which I would agree with this is that the shooting of Tiller will now unleash the Obammunists–and their Gestapo minions at FBI and Homeland Security–to declare open season on pro-lifers.
And as they use law enforcement resources to hound pro-lifers–and they will find nothing, because the pro-life movement is dominated by Catholic housewives and Protestant homeschooling SAHMs–they will divert those resources away from legitimate threats, such as Islammunist cells…
Come to think of it, that’s what the last Administration of Democrappers did.
