Quick Thought: Going to Church With An Abortion Doctor

Jerod Clark

There’s been a lot of passion and finger pointing surrounding the recent murder of Dr. George Tiller.  He’s a well known Wichita, Kansas doctor who performed late term abortions.  Last Sunday, Tiller was shot to death in his church, where he was an usher.

How about we stay away from the typical abortion arguments to answer a couple key questions a co-worker of mine posed about the situation:  

How would you handle going to church with someone who is an abortion doctor?  Could you stand next to him and worship by his side knowing what he did for a living?

(Quick Thought comments should be short.  Maybe a couple sentencesbut no more than 100 words or so.  I know, it'll be tough on this one.)
