RANDALL TERRY AND WILEY DRAKE, TWO MORE RIGHT-WING EXTREMISTS WHO CONDONE TERRORIST ACTIVITIES

The hate speech from Fuks Nuz's Bill O'Rielly was one of the factors that incited Scott P. Roeder into the terrorist act that took the life of Dr. George Tiller in Wichita, Kansas on Sunday.
There are other Christo-fascists who have been revelling in the fact that Dr. Tiller is dead. Two of those are Randall Terry of Operation Rescue and Wiley Drake a California based Southern Baptist minister. Both of these monsters were pleased that Dr. Tiller had been killed.

Below are two articles from Right Wing Watch on both of these monsters and what they had to say about the terrorist act commited in the taking of Dr. Tiller's life.

George Tiller Assassinated, Randall Terry Blames The Victim

As head of the Women's Health Care Services clinic in Wichita, Kansas, George Tiller has long been the most prominent target of anti-abortion activists in this country due to the fact that he was one of the few physicians in the country willing to perform "late-term" abortions.

His clinic was regularly targeted by anti-abortion activists and, recently, his "ties" to Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius became a right-wing talking point in opposing her nomination to become Secretary of Health and Human Services.

This morning, Tiller was assassinated while attending church:

Late-term abortion doctor George Tiller, a prominent advocate for abortion rights wounded by a protester more than a decade ago, was shot and killed Sunday at a church in Wichita where he was serving as an usher and his wife was in the choir, his attorney said.

Tiller was shot during morning services at Reformation Lutheran Church, attorney Dan Monnat said. Police said a manhunt was under way for the shooter, who fled in a car registered to a Kansas City suburb nearly 200 miles away.

As one would expect, those who had long targeted and demonized Tiller were quick to issue statements - with Randall Terry essentially blaming Tiller for his own murder:

Randall Terry, founder of Operation Rescue states, "George Tiller was a mass-murderer. We grieve for him that he did not have time to properly prepare his soul to face God. I am more concerned that the Obama Administration will use Tiller's killing to intimidate pro-lifers into surrendering our most effective rhetoric and actions. Abortion is still murder. And we still must call abortion by its proper name; murder.

"Those men and women who slaughter the unborn are murderers according to the Law of God. We must continue to expose them in our communities and peacefully protest them at their offices and homes, and yes, even their churches."

Frank Pavone of Priests for Life also offered his own statement in which he sought to deflect blame from anti-abortion militants by saying that, for all we know, he might have been murdered by a "political enemy" or someone traumatized by abortion:

"I am saddened to hear of the killing of George Tiller this morning. At this point, we do not know the motives of this act, or who is behind it, whether an angry post-abortive man or woman, or a misguided activist, or an enemy within the abortion industry, or a political enemy frustrated with the way Tiller has escaped prosecution. We should not jump to conclusions or rush to judgment.

Drake: Tiller's Murder "An Answer to Prayer

Wiley Drake, the one time second vice president of the Southern Baptist Convention and the man who last year served as Alan Keyes' running mate, weighs in on the murder of George Tiller, calling his assassination the answer to their imprecatory prayers:

While most pro-life leaders condemned the May 31 murder of a controversial abortion provider inside his Wichita, Kan., church, one former Southern Baptist Convention official called it an answer to prayer.

"I am glad George Tiller is dead," Wiley Drake, the SBC's former second vice president, said on his Crusade Radio program June 1.

...

Drake, pastor of First Southern Baptist Church in Buena Park, Calif., called Tiller "a brutal, murdering monster" and said he is "grateful to God" that the physician is no longer around.

"There may be a lot who would say, 'Oh that is mean. You shouldn't be that way,'" Drake said. "Well, no, it's an answer to prayer."

Drake said he prayed nearly 10 years for the salvation of Tiller, medical director of the Women's Health Care Services clinic and an outspoken advocate for abortion rights. About a year ago, Drake said, he switched to what he called "imprecatory prayer."

"I said to the Lord, 'Lord I pray back to you the Psalms, where it says that they are to become widowers and their children are to become orphans and so forth.' And we began calling for those imprecatory prayers, because he had obviously turned his back on God again and again and again," Drake said.

Drake called Tiller "a reprobate" and a "brutal, arrogant murderer" who "bragged on his own website how many babies he had killed."

"Would you have rejoiced when Adolf Hitler died during the war?" Drake asked. "Or would you have said, 'Oh that is terrible for him to be killed'? No, I would have said, 'Amen, praise the Lord, hallelujah, I'm glad he's dead.'"

"This man, George Tiller, was far greater in his atrocities than Adolf Hitler," Drake said. "So I am happy. I am glad that he is dead. Now I am sad that he went to hell, because he had a choice just like everybody else did. He could have chosen Jesus Christ and when he died went to heaven. But he chose the devil. He chose to neglect, he chose to reject Jesus Christ. And therefore on Sunday morning when he breathed his last breath there in the Lutheran church, he breathed his last breath, and he slipped into the presence of the devil. And I have a strange hunch and a strange feeling that there is a special, superheated, super-hot place in hell for people like George Tiller."

The article notes that this is not the first time Drake has called for imprecatory prayer against his enemies - he also issued a similar call in 2007 against Americans United for Separation of Church and State.

Boy, these two are sure living by Jesus' word. Impressive, I didn't know that prayer could be used to punish your enemies. All this time I thought you were supposed to pray for their souls not for their deaths. Fuctards!

Gordon said...

Some of those clowns are calling it a 'pro-life murder' like that justifies it. What a buncha assholes. Jesus weeps.

Riot Kitty said...

I hope there is a super hot place in hell for people like these two.

Wasn't Randall Terry at the helm of the Teri Shivo debacle where he tried to force Teri's husband to keep her on life support even though she'd had no brain activity for 15 or 20 years? This man has been sticking his nose in people's business for years. He keeps track of the "sins" of others yet his family fell apart. He is yet another terrorist who is so fanatical he thinks god is on his side while he advocates violence and death. Damn I hate these people. The really sad thing is it seems that no one can stop them.

What's really incredible is that guys like that speak for so much of what's left of the Republican base. If it wasn't before that became obvious at the Palin hate - er, campaign - rallies. If there were any grown-ups in charge they'd take a long time out, jettison the mouth breathers and rebuild with a new base. But they've gotten rid of the grown-ups altogether, apparently.

Sidhe - So much for either of these two assholes being loving and forgiving. They seem to have forgotten the words of their "lord" when he said "Judgment is Mine!"

Gordon - Murder is murder, plain and simple. They feel they are justified because they beat people up with their "bible".

Riot Kitty - Even that is too good for these two bastards.

Nancy - Yes he was. He also is divorced and when his adopted daughter got pregnant he kicked out of his house.

ZenYenta - That's why the Rethuglican party is controlled by psycho-fascists like these....there aren't any people with intelligence left in the party.
