  •  My point is to the blog thread in general. (0+ / 0-)

    It's entirely too easy to unjustly demonize an entire movement ('Pro-Life') for the violence perpetrated by extremists. I would no more assign responsibility for these horrific acts than I would 9/11 to all Muslims.

    Having said that, my 'song' (that you characterize as off-key) is to demonstrate that this is a difficult and understandably controversial issue to come to terms with by even otherwise 'reasonable' minds on either side. Terrorists are terrorists, they are not ideologues. Dr. Tiller's murderer might like to think of him/herself as acting on some Pro-Life principle, but s/he is no more rooted in 'just' principle than current-day jihadists or the unibomber.

    They are a twisted anomaly of humanity. Treat them as such.

    There ain't no redemption when you're stone cold sane; 'crazy' is just another point of view. - Sonia Dada -5.50 -4.51
