Maxims for Morons

Rule #1:

Never attribute to fiscal pragmatism what can be credited to the Power of Prayer.

    And a few posts earlier, she dug through the Esquire profile of Dr. Hearn for nuggets of shit to smear him with. Here was my response (assuming it gets through her anti-librul filter):

    So Suzanne, was this one of the “good points” you had in mind? (bolding mine)

    “The patients can be upsetting too. They’re under terrible stress, of course, but sometimes they come in very angry. One had conjoined twins and would have died giving birth, but she exploded when he told her she couldn’t smoke in the office. And some treat him with contempt and disgust, usually the ones who have been directly involved in antiabortion activities. They hate all abortion except for their special case. One even said they should all be killed. Only fourteen, she came with her mother. What brings you here? he asked. I have to have an abortion. Why? I’m not old enough to have a baby. But you told the counselor we should all be killed? Yes, you should all be killed. Why? Because you do abortions. Me too? Yes, you should be killed too. Do you want me killed before or after I do your abortion? Before.

    Only fourteen-years-old, and already she has the makings of the next Scott Roeder thanks to poisonous anti-choice rhetoric. It would certainly explain this bit from just a few paragraphs earlier:

    “He’s sorry, he says, but he must turn down your request to ride in his car to the Tiller memorial in Denver. He has to go with four U. S. marshals in an armored car. Even his wife can’t ride with him. Same with dinner in a restaurant. I will never be safe, he says. I’m always looking over my shoulder.

    JAB – How anyone could read that article and find reasons to use it against Dr.Hern is baffling to me. But then, this is what they do: twist and misrepresent, lie and obfuscate.

    They are scum, every last one of them.

    So, is Blob Blogging Wingnut claiming that the power of prayer made Scott Roeder shoot Dr Tiller because HER god controls everything?

    He must dBo. The clinic is closing. 8)

    deBeauxOs – She says God can control the economy AND the stock market! But he can’t control Scott Roeder? 😕

    SQ – I’m sure that’s something they were all praying to happen — “by any means necessary” — but of course, not violence, never that.

    BWAHAHAHA! Thanks, SQ. Blogged it.

    Damn you JJ!!! I had a post drafted this afternoon in response to Suzy’s partner-in-fetishism Julie Culshaw’s attributing of the closure to divine intervention that was waiting for a final edit and publication, but’s now going to have to go to the recycle bin.

    You’re always one step ahead of me. 😉 Good find!

    As for SUZY et al., I’m assuming that they’re going to be as quick to attribute the efforts to keep these places open and to prevent any interruption in service to “god working in mysterious ways”, right?

    AudreyII – No! Don’t recycle it! Everyone’s take on these things is a little different. I do a lot of posts with ideas I get from someone else, I just hat-tip them.

    AudreyII again – Your link isn’t working, do you want to try posting it again?

    I posted the following on her site. Since it’s mine,
    I can also post it anywhere else I please.

    I hope it evokes a response.


    So, God made Scott Roeder shoot Dr. Tiller?

    No. He doesn’t make anyone do anything.


    Explain the meaning of “thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”
    I always thought it was God’s will and if someone wants to kill an abortion doctor, wouldn’t he have holy permission and divine will to do so?

    Apparently “thou shalt not kill” applies not to them. I have a terrific toon on my blog where there’s a group of antis outside a women’s clinic, holding up a sign reading those very words–and a shooter right next to them, holding up a sign reading “I SHALL”.

    That, I think, says it all.

    PS: That fucked-up 14-year-old is simply incredible. If they kill him before he does HER exceptionalist abortion, won’t she have to resort to Ye Olde Coate Hanger? Three deaths for the price of one–there’s your “pro-life” logic for ya.
