Words of love ... and hate
First, via The Feminist Majority Foundation's Choices Campus Blog, some clips from a speech by the late Dr. George Tiller, assassinated in cold blood while attending church on May 31. (The sound isn't great so pump up the volume.)
''I personally see a society that respects the integrity of its citizens to struggle with complex health issues and make decisions that are appropriate for them and their personal lives. I see a society that respects the religious differences of its citizens. I see a society that rejects hate ...''
George Tiller was an easy mark for the devil. He was religious, sincere, loved money and fame, desired to do important things, and was more than willing to lay his life down for his cause. His cause, unfortunately, was to murder little baby boys and girls in their mother’s wombs. He thought he could have the best of both worlds. He honestly believed he could serve two masters.
Yes, he could have the adulation of the “world,” and large financial remunerations for killing babies, while maintaining the affirmation from his “church” that he was a “Christian.” It was a wedding birthed in hell.
Tiller, a Christian? This man was a poster child for the abortion industry. Mr. Tiller wanted it this way. His was a self chosen path. Unbeknownst to him, he was simply a pawn in the hands of the devil, his cause, and his apostate church. He was used to suppress the true Gospel of Christ by presenting, “…a different gospel which is really no gospel at all…” Galatians 1:6-7. By his own admission he killed over 60,000 children. He was no more a Christian than he was a poached egg.
He relished the limelight laid before him for being a third trimester abortionist, who baptized many of the babies he killed. He then burned them to ashes in his “on premises” crematorium. He was given a national platform and provided a notoriety that he did not want to relinquish. He did all this while staunchly believing and maintaining that he was a “Christian.”
Well, all I can say is, one helped women while the other judged them.
And you know what the Bible says about judging ...
The prayer vigil and what is being called a memorial service at (Dr. Tiller's) former Women’s Health Care Services, 5107 E. Kellogg, will be held at noon on Saturday during a “prayer walk” extending the length of Kellogg through Wichita, organizers said in a prepared statement.
“As members of the pro-life and faith community, we are coming together for a time of prayer and remembrance,” said the Rev. Patrick Mahoney, director of the Christian Defense Coalition, which is based in Washington, D.C. “We will be praying for the Tiller family as well as asking God to bring healing to the city of Wichita.
“We will be asking God to end the violence both inside and outside of abortion clinics. Specifically, we will be praying that Wichita respects human rights and social justice and that no abortions would ever be performed in the city again.”
Anti-abortion leaders voiced concern Sunday that the Obama administration and other Democrats may try to capitalize on the murder of Tiller to defuse the abortion issue in upcoming Supreme Court confirmation hearings.
Many anti-abortion groups condemned the killing of Tiller, a prominent abortion provider who was shot dead at his church in Wichita, Kansas. But they expressed concern that abortion-rights activists would use the occasion to brand the entire anti-abortion movement as extremist.
They also worried that there would now be an effort to stifle anti-abortion viewpoints during questioning of Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor. Her exact views on abortion aren't known, but conservatives fear she supports abortion rights.
Said the Rev. Patrick Mahoney, an anti-abortion activist: "No one should use this tragedy for political gain."
