God Sent The Shooter?!

A gunman opened fire in a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on Friday. These acts of atrocity are often committed by extremists who believe that they are punishing both those who are seeking abortions and doctors who perform them. But I have never understood the moral concept of killing for a cause, especially  killing someone in the name of Jesus. In fact one of The Ten Commandments is "Thou shalt not kill". So these "religious terrorists" break one of Gods commandments to punish those who break Gods commandments.

Robert Lewis Dear, 57, who surrendered to authorities after an hours long standoff, appears to have been motivated by opposition to abortion. Abortion clinics have long been the targets of violence, including bombings, anthrax scares and mass blockades. This year alone, arsonists attacked four Planned Parenthood clinics in WashingtonCalifornia, Illionois, and Louisiana.

In October, NARAL Pro-Choice America launched a petition urging the FBI to investigate the arson attacks, stating that “they’re perpetrated by an extreme minority that’s committed to ruling through fear and intimidation” and urging the FBI to treat them with the gravity warranted by domestic terrorism.

“We can’t wait until one more patient, doctor or nurse is hurt or killed before we say enough is enough. It’s time for an investigation to get to the bottom of this,” the group said.

Extremists have also thrown butyric acid into clinics, glued clinic locks shut, locked themselves into clinic property using items such as bicycle locks or chains, drilled holes into clinic roofs so that the clinic floods, invaded clinics, vandalized clinics, made threatening phone calls, tried to persuade patients to go to fake clinics, put spikes in driveways, talked outside clinics about bomb-making chemicals, laid down on sidewalks, jumped on cars, camped out in front of clinics for multiple-day stretches, and sent decoy patients into clinics to disrupt business. But none of these tactics resulted in death.

The most recent attack happened against a backdrop of increased hostility against Planned Parenthood, the result of a series of undercover videos that purport to show Planned Parenthood employees discussing the sale of fetal tissue. The videos have triggered renewed calls for the organization to be defunded, as well as a five-hour grilling of Planned Parenthood President and CEO Cecile Richards by a congressional select committee.

Friday's shooting left one police officer and two civilians dead. 



  1. We really don't know what is in the mind of God. There are many times when we question things: "why did this or that happen". We know that God is in charge, but there are times when, for whatever reason, we don't hear Him speaking--He's never silent, we just don't choose to hear him. Who knows why young David was allowed to overtake and kill the Giant Goliath? Who knows why God allowed the Jews to cross on the dry land of the Red Sea, yet caused Pharoah' s Army to drown in the water that came upon them. Who knows why this shooter chose to shoot? Did the
    devil make him do it? Sometimes, I think that there is a confluence of actions that cause these things to take place. I don't like abortionists, but I'm not going to kill one. I do believe that God turns His back sometimes AND we are in the "endtimes" and Revelation tells us how that is going to be. May I leave you with this:
    "If my people who are called by my name shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." II Chronicles 7:14 (KJV)
