  •  You're right -- we shouldn't leave out Trosch (3+ / 0-)

    He played a starring role in a piece I did about a year ago: The Gospel of Fear.

    A Catholic priest sat behind his desk in Magnolia Springs and pulled out a drawing on a sheet of paper.

    It's an advertisement that shows a doctor about to perform an abortion, and a man with a gun about to shoot the doctor. Two words accompany the drawing: "Justifiable Homicide."

    The ad was designed by the Rev. David Trosch, head of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Magnolia Springs, about 45 minutes south of Mobile.

    "If 100 doctors need to die to save over 1 million babies a year, I see it as a fair trade," Trosch said in an interview.
    For the moment, Trosch says, he has no plans to kill a doctor himself. He has "only remotely" thought about it, he said.
    Still, Trosch wouldn't say with absolute certainty he'd never kill a doctor.

    While Trosch said he has never told anyone else to kill a doctor, he casually acknowledged that the advertisement could have incited people to kill.

    "It doesn't bother me," he said.

    As I said somewhere else in this thread, I didn't think people would wade through 10,000 words of this stuff, but I'll bet we could go on all night without repeating ourselves.
