Just for the record, I am just as outraged by the shooting death of the Army recruiters in Arkansas as I am at the shooting death of Dr George Tiller.
As I stated in my previous post, I do not approve of the abortions that Dr Tiller was involved in. But I also do not approve of the actions of a right wing wacko (I can only assume that he is a right winger, apologies if I am wrong) in killing him because they disagree with him and think the world would be better off without him.
But just the same, I do not approve of some left wing wacko (again, assuming they were left wingers) killing an Army recruiter because of their anti-war stance.
I too, do not approve of war. I don't think it is as necessary as some think. However, I am not going to kill someone that is pro-war just to prove my point.
As Dave said in a recent post, two wrongs do not make a right.
Both murders were unnecessary and senseless.
Murder does not solve anything.
It should NEVER be used to justify a political means. You can not prove your point to the "other side" by killing one of them. It only makes you and your cause look bad and usually helps to further their cause instead of your own.
So you are a pro-life activist. You kill an abortion doctor. What does that prove? That you are not as pro-life as you think you are.
So you are an anti-war activist. You kill an army recruiter. What does that prove? I have nothing. What? To keep them from recruiting more people to join the military? That's just stupid. It proves nothing.
Murder justifies nothing. It is ALWAYS wrong.
There, I have said my peace.
