Murray full of ‘anger and bitterness’
To the Editor:
While visiting in Madison recently, I picked up a copy of the Morgan County Citizen. I really enjoyed reading it until I got to the page that screamed out “The Politics of Hate” by Celia Murray.
I would like to advise Ms. Murray that first of all, I am proud to call myself a Christian and a Republican who believes in what is right. But let me say one thing – Dr. Tiller’s murder was no more my fault than it was FOX News, and I am highly insulted that Ms. Murray has the nerve to blame us for the murder of this man who had murdered over 60,000 innocent babies.
Scott Roeder was not indoctrinated by anyone other than the anger he felt toward George Tiller because of what he was doing. He was willing to go to prison for the rest of his life or get the death penalty to save maybe another 60,000 innocent lives. I am sick and tired of people like Ms. Murray blaming Christianity and what she calls the Religious Right as the reason for George Tiller’s murder and any other thing they can dream up.
I wonder what George Tiller’s pastor thinks about his profession. Evidently, he does not preach against abortion, or surely Tiller would not have been allowed to hold any position in that church. The American taxpayer certainly should not be responsible for giving extra protection and bullet-proof vests to abortion doctors and clinics. They chose that heinous career and make millions of dollars off killing babies, let them pay for it.
Can anyone explain to me why killing an abortion doctor is considered a hate crime when murdering anyone else is not??? If someone I know was murdered by a Democratic atheist, I would consider that as much a hate crime. Where is outrage over the murder of the Army recruiter by a “religious right Muslim”? The Muslim himself said he didn’t feel like it was murder because he was simply doing an “eye for an eye” because the United States was “killing innocent women and children.”
What is the difference between what the Muslim did and Scott Roeder did? I don’t see Ms. Murray, even the President of the United States, or anyone in the Democratic Party standing up and outraged over the death of the Army recruiter.
He was just as important, if not more so, than George Tiller.
Tiller is called a hero by the “left,” he is anything but. The Army recruiter is the hero in the news.
My pastor preaches against murder, abortion, homosexuality, and ALL sin.
He certainly has the right to stand up and preach God’s Word, which is absolute truth. I, and every other American citizen, still have the right to stand up for what we believe in, and I will continue to do so. I don’t think that’s being hateful or a hate crime.
It appears that if you disagree with anything the Democratic Party and its followers have to say, that somehow you are wrong and have no right to speak. If you are anti-abortion, then you are considered a terrorist, which by the way, the current Homeland Security tried to add you to their list of people to keep an eye on.
Christians and Republicans are not the hate machine, people like Ms. Murray are. It appears she has a history of producing this type of venom, which to me is a terrorist act because it incites people, and she loves it.
People like her are so full of anger and bitterness, they just have to spew it out. I will guarantee you that 99.9 percent of the people in Morgan County are ashamed to see her articles in their newspaper and shake their heads knowing that visitors come from all over to visit beautiful Historic Madison and that most likely they will pick up a copy of this newspaper.
I pray to God that He will change the hearts and minds of these people who actually believe that abortion is okay.
