Some Believe the Killing of Dr. Tiller Was Justified—What have We Become?

This afternoon I was reading stories in reference to the killing of abortion Dr. George Tiller. Most of the articles say that the killing was a heinous and reprehensible act, but while reading an article on the Fox News Network I was struck by one of the comments: “What kind of church would allow an unrepentant murderer of babies to be a member of their church and on top of that an usher! I honestly do not feel bad about the Dr.’s death nor do I feel bad for his family. He was responsible for the murder of thousands of babies. His family by all accounts supported him. It may sound harsh but justice was finally carried out for this murderer.” I did not post the entire comment but the hatred spewing through is frightening. When did we as a country start condoning vigilante justice? Like it or not this man was doing something that was legally sanctioned by the state and he did not deserve to die like this.
