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 - an arrest (and personal ties)

The FBI has arrested a man who ran a blog that called for attacks on pro-lifers - and a man who made threats against me - for reportedly threatening two pro-life advocates.

Theodore Shulman has been charged him with communicating interstate threats against the two pro-lifers. At last report, he was being held without bond at Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City.

The FBI is withholding the identities of the two targetted pro-lifers to protect their safety.

Protecting them from other violent pro-choicers? Or if he gets out?

Shulman ran a site called Operation Counterstrike. It was pretty vile - and pushed for attacks on pro-lifers, including murder. He had a history of making threats against various pro-life people.

Back in 2009 he wrote the following to me:

Lee, if you report me to the authorities--police or FBI, please make your report SHORT. Policemen and FBI agents are very busy doing important work, and you should try to waste as little of their time as you can. Soon, there will be COUNTERTERROR against right-to-lifers. PAYBACK for Dr. Tiller's murder. Likely first-targets include Professor Robert P. George of Princeton, Paul Hill's wife (karen) and kids (justin, gloria, and joy) and a moron named Lee Strong.

He also wrote:

Will there be PAYBACK for the murder of Dr. Tiller? Will there be COUNTERTERROR against right-to-lifers? If a right-to-lifer gets counterterrorized TO DEATH, will that be murder, or JUSTIFIABLE HOMICIDE? WHO would be the most effective TARGETS for anti-right-to-lifist counterterror? WHERE do they LIVE?

There were more comments, but you get the idea. I hope he gets the help he so obviously needs.

Good grief. This poor man is off his nut. We need to pray for him.
