George Tiller has been performing abortions since 1973. His office released an estimate of 60,00 abortions had been performed by Tiller personally. If you walked into his office he would perform an abortion for you whether you were four weeks pregnant or 38 weeks pregnant.
Last Sunday, someone shot and killed George Tiller. It wasn't the first attempt on his life. He was shot in both arms in 1993 and if the shooter hadn't been caught she stated she would have returned to finish the job.
Do I think that George Tiller deserved to die? That is not my call to make. George Tiller is a sinner. Just like me. The Bible tells me that no sin is bigger than another. In MY eyes that isn't so. Murdering babies sure seems a lot bigger than snitching a candy bar from a store. But what my head knows is what God's Word tells me and so I have to go with what I know so I have to leave the judgement up to God.
What has kept my mind churning this week are two separate things:
George Tiller was killed in CHURCH. He was a man who regularly went to church. How can a man who is supposed believes in God go to "work" each day and kill innocent, wonderfully, fearfully made babies.
Also, immediately after the murder was announced, President Obama came out and made a statement: "I am shocked and outraged by the murder of Dr. George Tiller as he attended church services this morning. However profound our differences as Americans over difficult issues such as abortion, they cannot be resolved by heinous acts of violence." He doesn't mind if millions of innocent babies are killed, but he is outraged if one adult whose sole purpose in life is to kill those babies is murdered.
Everyone is so shocked and outraged over Tiller.... This country NEEDS to be shocked and outraged over the 60,000 babies Tiller murdered - specifically the CHRISTIANS. At least Tiller has a name. The babies don't.
