Scott Roeder also deserves to die, if he indeed is Tiller's Killer. There is no disputing the fact that Tiller killed over 60,000 children, most of whom were "viable."
If convicted, Roeder will go to jail (or be executed) as a murderer, but not as a Christian:
14 If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified. 15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evildoer, or as a busybody in other people’s matters. 16 Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in this matter
1 Peter 4:14-16
Murderers do not "inherit the Kingdom of God" (Romans 13:9; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10).
Tiller was 65,000 times more worthy of death than Roeder. That's about how many people Tiller -- the paid assassin -- murdered -- at $5,000 a pop. The Apostle Paul speaks of those who murder as "worthy of death."
Steve Lefemine of Columbia Christians for Life declares,
The land is polluted with innocent blood (Genesis 4:10, Numbers 35:33, Proverbs 6:16,17, 2 Kings 24:1-4) and God is bringing His Divine Judgement upon America. George Tiller should have been brought to justice a long time ago, tried for his many crimes of murder, and upon a verdict of guilty for his thousands of counts of murder, executed for his crimes.
I don't believe that Tiller's execution would cleanse the land of the pollution caused by the shedding of innocent blood. Here's why. This is why Tiller's Killer is also a murderer.
Contrary to the claim of Frank Schaeffer, the "religious right" is not responsible for Tiller's murder. It's possible to say that the religous right is responsible for the election of George Bush, because the religious right told anyone who listened to vote for Bush. But nobody -- I repeat, nobody in the Religious Right is advocating vigilante justice. If the religious right were really advocating violence, there would have been more than 4 murders of abortionists in the last 50 years to balance against their 49 million murders.
So-called "Christians" who kill abortionists are wacko. Liberals who kill their children are logical.
Ann Coulter asks which trite liberal moralism should be applied to Tiller's murder:
• "I wouldn't kill an abortionist myself, but I wouldn't want to impose my moral values on others."
• "No one is for shooting abortionists. But how will criminalizing men making difficult, often tragic, decisions be an effective means of achieving the goal of reducing the shootings of abortionists?"
• Following the moral precepts of liberals, I believe the correct position is: "If you don't believe in shooting abortionists, then don't shoot one."
Liberals say they want to make abortions "rare." Since they were made "safe and legal," there have been 49 million of them (plus several times that number [?] by abortifacient "birth control"). Pro-lifers certainly want to make abortionist killings "rare." It's a good thing for abortionists that pro-lifers aren't following the "pro-choice" strategies on that project.
The killing of Tiller was evil. Perhaps God sent this evil to warn the other 2 abortion clinics (the other two that kill babies who could [and maybe did for a few minutes] survive outside the womb) to go out of business. (Plus abortion clinics that don't do late-term abortions.) Doctors who kill babies in order to become millionaires should fear the verdict of "the Supreme Judge of the World," a Judge Who -- contrary to the claims of deists -- supernaturally intervenes in human history and changes the "natural" course of events.
It is never necessary to intentionally kill an unborn child to save the life of the mother. It is also not necessary to kill an abortionist. God will take care of vengeance.
