Tiller and His Killer

I have found that there are two ways to upset my evangelical Christian students (not that I try to do that). I can either question in any way the complete freedom of human will, or question people's right to rebel against the government and take the law into their own hands.

Here is an excerpt from my post over at WORLDmag.com on why Scott Roeder was wrong to kill the radical abortionist, George Tiller:

He was not a healer, but a killer—a callous monster who could hold a baby in his hands as the child emerged from the mother, puncture its skull, and suck its brains out. Tiller was a mass murderer, though the unjust laws that govern that practice in America sanctioned his butchery. It does not follow, however, that Roeder was justified in what he did, as almost every Christian opponent of abortion would agree. ...
