Shedding Crocodile Tears

The news organizations are probably covering the murder of Dr George Miller pretty heavily. Various organizations have released statements about the murder. Aside from the "this was not done by a true Christian" and "we pray for George Miller and his family" themes, I find this statement from Randall Terry, founder of Operation Rescue, particularly striking.

George Tiller was a mass-murderer. We grieve for him that he did not have time to properly prepare his soul to face God. I am more concerned that the Obama Administration will use Tiller's killing to intimidate pro-lifers into surrendering our most effective rhetoric and actions. Abortion is still murder. And we still must call abortion by its proper name; murder.

Those men and women who slaughter the unborn are murderers according to the Law of God. We must continue to expose them in our communities and peacefully protest them at their offices and homes, and yes, even their churches.

This is what Terry's statement says to me: By all means peacefully protest anyone who works at a clinic that provides abortions regardless of where they are at. But if you can't be peaceful about it, at least give them a chance to get on their knees and pray for forgiveness before you kill them. Abortion is murder and murder is bad. So before you murder a murderer, give them a chance to properly prepare their soul.

Otherwise, you may lose your most effective rhetoric and actions.
