Today, I can’t help but think about the George Tiller tragedy. But the tragedy I’m thinking of is not the same one many in the world are thinking of. I don’t condone the killing of another person, in the way that Tiller was killed. Anytime a man is shot in the face at church, it is a tragedy. Even if the man is evil, and the church is a church in name only with no gospel being preached. I feel bad for those who witnessed the scene. I feel bad for Tiller’s family and friends. And I feel bad for the thousands of good, God-fearing, law abiding pro-lifers who will be caricatured by the media and the political left because of this tragedy. But George Tiller’s life involved a much greater tragedy than his ignominious death. George Tiller’s entire life was a tragedy of Biblical proportion.
Like Herod of old, Tiller was famous for killing babies. I know that many will sweep that “elephant in the room” under the rug now that the killer has been killed. I know that many will hold vigils and sing the praises of Tiller the humanitarian….but Tiller the Killer, must not be forgotten. Nor the thousands of babies over the years who were murdered, mutilated, and incinerated in Tiller’s modern day death camp.
Abortion is one of the greatest moral evils of our day. In a physical sense, Tiller’s death bore an eerily similar resemblance to the numerous murders he himself committed over the years. As most know, the abortion of a baby typically involves the removing of the brains by a suction device. In other words the baby’s brains get sucked out, instead of blown out, but the result is the same. Tiller performed this heinous act thousands of times over the years. In fact, he was one of the few abortionists who would even do it on late term babies. Fully grown, fully developed human beings – who had done nothing to deserve their slaughter. Yet Tiller slaughtered him.
Today the political left will sing Tiller’s praises and they’ll gush about how he helped “underprivileged women.” They’ll ramble on about his bravery, and they’ll gloat about what a humanitarian he was. This is nothing more than the clear and obvious evidence of how wickedly, twisted and depraved our society has become. I know that most people don’t want to hear the truth about a man who was just killed…but George Tiller was a slime-ball of the lowest order. He made his living by murdering innocent children for money. Liberals can live in their warped dream world from now until doomsday, but the facts remain the same. Tiller was evil.
But Tiller shouldn’t have been killed. Instead, Tiller’s butchery should have been outlawed years ago. In fact, such savagery should have never been legalized in the first place. Other options are available for women. Other options besides killing their young. Maybe some day the bleeding hearts of the left will stop talking about “standing up for the little guy” and actually have the nerve to do it with the littlest guys and girls our society produces. The children in the womb, who can’t speak for themselves.
I also have no doubt that the man who killed Tiller is a nutcase supreme. He’s an isolated wacko, who will suddenly become the poster child for all who defend the life of the unborn. I remember very well when Timothy McVeigh blew up the Oklahoma City building, and immediately every right wing gun owner in America was lambasted as a “Timothy McVeigh type” as if all politically conservative gun owners just set around and dream of Federal buildings to blow up. In truth the Tiller death seems like a perfect scenario for the Barack Obama administration which has already proven itself to be the greatest foes conservative Americans have ever had.
Homeland Defense Secretary Janet Napolitano recently released her “watch list” of potential terrorists that included “right wing pro-lifers” and “military veterans” – strangely absent from her list were left wing radical groups that have proven truly violent in pursing their agenda. Obama is also no friend to gun owners, threatening to pursue action to severely limit our right to keep and bear arms. The Tiller death seems to give Obama the perfect chance to move against both pro lifers and gun owners…and I suspect he will. In fact I might even suggest that Obama set the whole thing up….kind of like Nero setting fire to Rome, then blaming the Christians…..of course if I suggest such a thing, Obama will promptly add my name to his watch list. So I digress.
I’ll simply close by saying that Tiller’s death isn’t as big of a tragedy as Tiller’s deaths (plural). The man was a butcher who got butchered. I don’t condone Tiller’s murders…nor his own murder. But thousands of innocent babies are a greater tragedy than one guilty and evil man. It wasn’t the killer’s place to end Tiller’s life…just as it wasn’t Tiller’s place to end the babies’ lives. But the surest way to assure that our citizens respect the life of adults…is to START RESPECTING THE LIVES OF THE CHILDREN…..THE BABIES….THE UNBORN!
So maybe this death will move us one step closer to valuing all life, and abolishing the barbaric practice of abortion. I seriously doubt that will happen, but I hope and pray that it will.
