What George Tiller did to unborn babies was heinous and, in a just world with a just government, worthy of punishment under law.  What the mothers of those babies suffered afterwards is also unspeakably tragic.  However, it is never right to take the law into one’s own hands and wreak vengeance outside the existing laws of government.  Murder is condemned in Scripture, and Scott Roeder’s act must be condemned.

I don’t know if Roeder claims to be a Christian or not, or if he is just a fanatical anti-abortionist.  In cases where the existing law is immoral, as is the case with abortion in this nation, a Christian’s view is to do what one can, legally, to help change such laws.  When that is not possible, Christians are to take an eternal perspective.  There will be justice someday.  If not on earth, then in heaven.
