Terrorists celebrated

On July 24, 1994 former Presbyterian minister Paul Hill murdered two people and seriously injured a third in a terrorist attack on a Pensacola, Florida abortion clinic.  From the Wikipedia article:

Paul Jennings Hill (April 30, 1954September 3, 2003) was an anti-abortion activist and a terrorist connected to the Army of God, who was convicted of the murders of physician John Britton and his clinic escort, James Barrett, outside a Pensacola, Florida abortion clinic on July 29, 1994. In addition to the two murders, Hill seriously wounded Barrett’s wife. Sentenced to the death penalty under Florida law, Hill died by lethal injection, making him the first person to be executed in the U.S. for killing an abortion provider, though several others were imprisoned on similar charges at the time.

In Milwaukee, Wisconsin,  George L. Wilson of Children Need Heroes and Drew Heiss of Street Preach are planning to celebrate Hill and other terrorists (Shelley Shannon and James Koop) during “Paul Hill Days” (July 26-29).  Frederick Clarkson at Talk to Action and John J. McKay at Archy have more details, as do Greg Laden and PZ Myers.

It never ceases to amaze me that the US government tolerates and coddles some terrorists, while allegedly waging a “war on terror”.  How is it that in this time of “war” some terrorist organisations run by religious extremists are tolerated?  It seems to drive the point home that the “war on terror” is only a marketing campaign to get politicians elected, while spending other people’s blood (be it American soldiers or Iraqis attending a wedding).

  1. […] and James Kopp (who murdered Dr. Barnett Slepian)?  The Ku Klux Klan?  The organisers of “Paul Hill Days“?  There have been strong suggestions of a connection between the Christian Identity […]

  2. Paul Hill was not a terrorist, but the babykilling abortionist that he stopped from murdering any more children certainly was. That babykiller was on his way in to murder 34 more innocent babies when Paul Hill stopped him. Paul Hill did the right thing.
    SAY THIS PRAYER: Dear Jesus, I am a sinner and am headed to eternal hell because of my sins. I believe you died on the cross to take away my sins and to take me to heaven. Jesus, I ask you now to come into my heart and take away my sins and give me eternal life.

  3. People who use fear and terror in an attempt to manipulate the actions of others are terrorists. You need to ask yourself this question – if there’s a fire, and you can either save one child or two frozen embryos – which one would you save? If you can honestly answer that you would rather save two embryos than one child that has already been born – then yes, you can reasonably equate abortion with murder. But, that still doesn’t make Hill’s victim a terrorist. He wasn’t using fear and terror to manipulate other people. And that doesn’t justify Hill’s use of murder and terror to manipulate other people.

    As for the “sinners prayer”…Jesus called on people to follow him, to follow his example, not to utter some magical incantation. Jesus is not a good luck charm or a rabbit’s foot. Jesus went to his death without resistance. He reprimanded Peter for attacking the Roman soldier. He called on his followers to offer the other cheek to someone who had already hit them. He did not say “say this magic incantation and then go forth and do evil”.

  4. Paul Hill most definitely was a terrorist. And Donald Spitz gives aid and comfort to terrorists.
