Poetic Justice?

Matthew 26:52 Then Jesus saith to him: Put up again thy sword into its place: for all that take the sword shall perish with the sword.

Tiller the Killer is dead. Pray for his soul.

May God have mercy on Tiller's soul and on the soul that took his life.

There is no reason to pray for his soul because it was on a rocket sled to Hell the second he died. This monster chose to be evil and the world is a better place now that he is gone.
I don't think that his murder was a good thing but asking God to have mercy on his soul? Did Catholics around the world pray for Adolph Hitler's soul in 1945? Or did they all give thanks that this evil man had left the world and shuddered at the thought of the Judgement that awaited him?
There are so many sinful and imperfect people in this world that need prayers much more than Tiller. Use your energy to pray for these sinners so that they may change their ways and become good Christians.

Leave the monster cleanup to St. Peter.

Anonymous, I also shudder to think at the judgment that awaited George Tiller. Still, we do not know for sure that anyone is in hell, always hoping in the mercy of God, and the Catholic Church does not pronounce anyone to absolutely be in hell.

You're not condoning this, are you? Your tone suggests otherwise. I agree, may God have mercy on his soul.

Quite possibly the very reasoning process used by his murderer.

Tiller the killer is dead.

Here's a quip you wouldn't have found on the lips of an apostle: "Judas the Brutus is dead."

Hollywood and the secular media have a long history of demonizing the pro-life movement on any pretext; prudence, not vitriol and lame rhymes are needed now. "Be wise as serpents, and innocent as doves."

Dim Bulb, George Tiller was widely known as "Tiller the Killer", hence the use of that term in my post.

I agree with "the Catholic Church does not pronounce anyone to absolutely be in hell." I'm glad you posted this to pray for his poor soul, because I sure there aren't many who will be. If God's mercy, saved him, he will have a long Purgatory. The lost of any soul is terrible. I hope before he died, he had a chance to realize what awaited him and begged for forgiveness.

My surprise in all of this was that an abortionist went to church. I thought they thought themselves to be God's unto themselves. We really can't judge.

Elizabeth, I was also surprised that he went to church. What does an abortionist pray for, I wonder? Thank God he wasn't receiving Holy Communion as he was not attending a Catholic Church.

Well, Anon, we don't know that Catholics didn't pray for the soul of Hitler, do we? We are not to judge, even a person who to us personified evil may have been granted the grace of final perseverance. I'm sure many Catholics prayed for his soul while he lived; why not continue after his death?

Anonymous i disagree with you. We can never plumb the depths of the Mercy of God. Let us not judge but pray.
