There have always been madmen, nuts and psycho’s in the world. The difference between the past and today is people today accept their insane public comments, with little shock or public resistance against them. Even, as in the 2 cases below, when the topic is murder. In Paul’s first letter to Timothy he warns in the latter times of many “whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron”.
May God help us all to keep a tender conscience and may the Church never cease to be shocked and appalled by sin and evil.
Fr. Frank Pavone comment today, concerning Scott Roeder:
Anti-abortion activist, Joe Provone said that Roeder, and others, were worthy of admiration, gratitude and respect.
“Not everyone possesses their courage or ability as we are all endowed by our God with different gifts and talents,” (source, Scott Roeder: I killed Tiller and I’d do it again)
Rabbi says Jews can kill Gentiles who threaten Israel
Rabbi Yitzhak Shapiro, wrote in his book “The King’s Torah” that even babies and children can be killed if they pose a threat to the nation.
Shapiro based the majority of his teachings on passages quoted from the Bible, to which he adds his opinions and beliefs.
“It is permissable to kill the Righteous among Nations even if they are not responsible for the threatening situation,” he wrote, adding: “If we kill a Gentile who has sinned or has violated one of the seven commandments – because we care about the commandments – there is nothing wrong with the murder.”
Several prominent rabbis…have recommended the book to their students and followers. (source, West Bank rabbi: Jews can kill Gentiles who threaten Israel )
