I’m sure by now you’ve seen the coverage of yesterday’s horrific shooting at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, Colorado. While the shooter Robert L. Dear has been identified there is no other information available about him in the news media.
Colorado Springs is also home to Kevin Swanson of Generations Radio, who’s also called for protests and protested at this particular Planned Parenthood along with his family and church members. While nothing is known at this time if there is a link between Swanson, the church he pastors and the shooter it would not be surprising if it comes out that there is some commonality. You cannot pontificate and call for violent actions against others openly in the media and not expect someone to take genuine action on your words.
What is known is that many Pro Life Anti Abortion Christians are applauding the terroristic actions of Mr. Dear and calling for more to do the same. From Thought Catalog:
While the shooter’s motive is not known, many people have assumed it is a radical political statement against the mission of Planned Parenthood. And it’s not just liberals who think that, some special radical Christian conservatives agree, but they, on the other hand, are applauding (or excusing) the shooter.
Many tweets of support for the shooter. Sad state when this is acceptable.
