The Assassination of Dr. George Tiller

Those of you that followed this story from the day it happened will not want to miss this special documentary produced by the Rachel Maddow show. Listening to Scott Roeder is a chilling reminder of what happens when a climate of fear and hatred is perpetually stoked by religious fundamentalists. The rest of the videos are after the jump. ...

Anti Abortion militants upset over Tiller murder conviction

It appears anti-abortion activists are getting a bit crazier every day. The recent conviction of Scott Roeder, who gunned down Dr. George Tiller just about a year ago, has apparently rallied religious nutjobs who think killing doctors who perform abortions is a heroic act. They are upset he was found guilty, which makes me wonder what connection they have with reality. I'm not sure what they were expecting ...

Suspect in Tiller murder is an O’Reily fan

Visit msnbc.com for Breaking News, World News, and News about the Economy Here is a compilation from Keith Olbermann showing the culpability of Fox News channel in the death of Dr. George Tiller. On over 20 different occasions, the TV station ran stories on Tiller, accusing him of being a murderer, and even giving him a nickname: 'Tiller the Baby Killer'.

Hitchens vs Perkins on National Day of Prayer being Unconstitutional

So, according to Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council (you might remember these guys endorsing the murder of Dr. George Tiller) , a judge upholding the constitution's first Amendment is not only activism, but also judicial arrogance. I think the only arrogance being displayed here is by cry-baby religious folks who can't stand whenever secularism is upheld. It's this very separation of church and sta ...

Great article: “Why I’m Getting an Abortion”

We've done a lot of podcasts on the subject of abortion in the last few months; with Tim Tebow's Super bowl ad to the murder of Dr. George Tiller, the controversy surrounding abortion never goes away. Last show we did, a fan emailed me saying his girlfriend had been upset from listening to the casualness and callousness we displayed when talking about it. Apparently, not having a vagina means you can't prop ...

The real dangers of racism, bigotry and hatred

I've been a little obsessed with the media lately. I really can't help myself in the light of Dr. George Tiller's death. It was only after his murder I had an opportunity to see the full scope of the religious right's campaign against him. The carefully worded press releases all publicly condemn the act, but it's no surprise the majority of them are in fact quite pleased at Tiller's death. I've begun to rea ...

How much control does the media have over us?

One of my recent tirades against Fox News prompted me to write about the degree of control mainstream media has over society. This piece is not meant to lay all the blame of society on their shoulders; rather it is an invitation to consider the fact that perhaps we do not all make rational choices based on a careful examination of the evidence. I am the first to admit it is often easier and more expedient t ...

Tweets of hate for slain abortion doctor

Yesterday I wrote about the murder of Dr. George Tiller, an abortion doctor living in Kansas. Not shortly after his death, the Twittersphere was abuzz with Christians trying to spread the love their Messiah tried so hard to instill in them. Here are a few choice quotes from some 'good' Christians: oh HAPPY DAY! Tiller the baby killer is DEAD!- Samantha Pelch George Tiller the Baby Killer shot dead. May he r ...

Abortion doctor gunned down in church

Anti-abortionists scare me. Sure, most of them are fairly harmless, but their zeal and conviction often invite violent individuals into their ranks. It's inevitable that certain people, who feel their actions are justified by their God, will commit violent acts against doctors and nurses who provide this medical service. Dr. George Tiller was shot and killed today during church, and although the details of ...
