Condemning the Murder of Dr. Tiller


"If anyone has an urge to kill someone at an abortion clinic, they should shoot me. ... It's madness. It discredits the right-to-life movement. Murder is murder. It's madness. You cannot prevent killing by killing." -- John Cardinal O'Connor
Shame on me for wanting to ignore this craziness and then wanting to ignore the craziness over, around and through this craziness.

Shame on me for not posting something immediately like Roman Catholic bloggers such as
Ironic Catholic, David Gibson (Pontifications), Catholic Sensibility, and Deacon's Bench.

May God forgive me for taking this long to declare that I stand in prayerful solidarity with those who condemn the murder of Dr. Tiller as inexcusably evil.

  3. It seems to me that one of the many consequences of our fallen state is that we keep forgetting that hate (extremism, terrorism, call it what you will) can not be killed.
