Reformation Lutheran Church in Wichita KS has a special attendee. His name is George Tiller and he has done more than 50,000 abortions over the past 30 years. Has Tiller been disciplined by his church? Quite the contrary. His pastor photographs protesters, and Tiller’s wife has written for the church newsletter. Want to see the Tillers taking communion?
If that is not enough, Tiller’s abortion clinic offers a chaplaincy program. Yes, you have the option to photograph, hold, or baptize the mangled body of the child you have just murdered. And, best of all, a pastor can be present (although the Episcopal priest shown on the web site died last year). If this seems like something from a grade Z horror movie, there is a site showing pictures of one of these sessions that is one of the most macabre things I have ever seen.
“How great, therefore, the wickedness of human nature is! How many girls there are who prevent conception and kill and expel tender fetuses…” So said Martin Luther. Tiller’s clinic (and apparently Reformation Lutheran) begs to differ, stating that abortion is “spiritually” acceptable by “many denominations” within Christianity. Alas, evil rationalizing aside, it is sadly true. Many churches, such as Broad Street Presbyterian in Columbus, OH, which until recently housed the Ohio branch office of NARAL, are providing spiritual cover for wickedness. In Tiller’s case, Reformation Lutheran provides “loving” cover for his vile practice.
A topic for your prayers.
