A few tens of millions of Native Americans: American and European Christians did that.

Six million Jews, gays, gypsies: German Christians did that. Yes, Nazis were devout Christians for the most part.

Enslaved and murdered millions of Africans: European Christians did that.

Enslaved and murdered thousands of Australian Aborigines: British Christians.

Fought a war to protect drug profits in China, despite the millions of deaths and untold misery it brought: British Christians again.

Apparently you slept through history classes.

Christianity has a very long history of intolerance and violence: there is nothing new in Christian fanatics killing those who disagreed with them or who wouldn't accept their beliefs. Murdering abortion doctors is simply par for course.

Wow! I knew the history books had changed a lot since I was a kid, but I had no idea they have been teaching that Nazis were Christians! No wonder you hate us!

On topic...

And with civility and decorum is how posting in the "Breaking Alternative News" should be executed.

Please address the nuances of the story originally posted.

Thanks.

Oh hang on a second, this is creepy, believe it or not I didn't know much about this man, Tiller,

Is it true he baptized the aborted babies before he then cremated them?

Sorry if this was already mentioned.

Doesn't matter what religion you belong to. Murder is murder. If you shoot someone like this, it is murder. It is not a vigilantes job to extract justice. As far as looking at all the attrocities christianity has brought forth, you must look at all the good that has come from it. I for one, say the good outways the politically backed "genocide" as of which no of it had to do with religion. More like religion was thrown in to gather more support for the cause.

To add,

Tiller was a Christian, so how do the pro-choicers argue their way around this fact.

You are pointing the finger at Christian pro-lifers, yet Tiller baptitized the babies he killed,

I am sorry but he was just as mental as the guy who shot him.
