View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Pro-choice violence

The murder of Dr. Tiller was a crime. It has no defense.

But the amount of violent crimes committed against abortionists and their supporters is dwarfed by the volume of violence committed by pro-choicers.

Human Life International has documented more than 8,519 acts of violence and illegal activities by pro-abortionists. These crimes include:
1,251 homicides and other killings
157 attempted homicides
28 arsons and firebombings
904 assaults
1,908 sex crimes (including 250 rapes)
106 kidnappings
420 cases of vandalism
290 drug crimes
1,616 medical crimes

And that does not include the approximately 50 million babies killed.

This kind of rhetoric serves no constructive purpose. It's just finger-pointing and rather servile and immature.

Go have a good nap and feel better soon.

Of course it serves a purpose.

The pro-choicers are trying to paint a picture of pro-lifers as a violent group. They are trying to control the debate. But the fact is that pro-choicers in general have been guilty of more violence.

When is it immature to point out facts? How is it finger-pointing to cite statistics?

Servile?? How so?? To whom??

They were just the first insulting and superior words that popped into his head. They mean nothing. Either that, or he isn't circumspect enough to realize the absurdity of calling someone 'immature' while trolling anonymously.

Oh, and I wanted to ask, do you have a link for those numbers?

And here I was foolishly thinking he wanted to engage in intelligent discussion.

As for a link, it's in the original post.
