After RG's comment, we all can just point to it.


Carl, I understand what you mean about Terry. But I think the timing of this is rather convenient, with the recent poll showing a majority are pro-life and the recent release (and withdrawal) of the federal report listing pro-lifers as potential terrorists. I take no joy in Tiller's murder, but this will be used in the secular left's textbook approach of demonizing opponents en masse as the above quote shows. The Krazy Kos Kidz will use it in an attempt to silence criticism of abortion. How will we speak out in defense of the unborn if they succeed? The attack on Tiller was yet another attack on democratic pluralism.

Abortion, Child Molestation, Polygamy, Sodomy,
Idolatry, Homesexuality, Murder, Rape, Adultry, Gossip, Stealing, Lying....It's all okay isn't it? Where does it say it's wrong? Have any of these issues ever been illegal? Oh yeah, the Bible...God's Holy Word...Some things never change...Thank You God...We all live in a corrupt and sinful world but it helps to know there are absolute truths that the majority of todays standards are based on. Unfortunately, approximately only half of America believes it.


In my observation, someone who is a moral relativist instantly ceases to be one when it's their own ox being gored. It's mere sophistry.

I'm very inwardly reflective. I am and always will be a sinner. I recognize my sin based on a moral standard both by my conscious and God's word. I love the sinner but hate the sin. I don't consider knowing right from wrong a fallious argument.


Abortion, Child Molestation, Polygamy, Sodomy, Idolatry, Homesexuality, Murder, Rape, Adultry, Gossip, Stealing, Lying....

Lonnie, These are also wrong by the standards of Natural Law, as St. Paul writes in Romans 1 20-21, "Ever since the creation of the world, his invisible attributes of eternal power and divinity have been able to be understood and perceived in what he has made. As a result, they have no excuse; for although they knew God they did not accord him glory as God or give him thanks. Instead, they became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless minds were darkened.


Thanks for pointing that scripture out. Although the murder of Dr. Tiller saddens me, it saddens me even more to see people bending what is right and wrong to suit their selfish beliefs/whims. I feel very comforted in the knowledge that no matter what, God's in control, and that my kids can attend a christian scool where some these absurd ideas are not being portrayed as something they should strive to achieve.
