Randall Terry: Hypocrite in Chief

It didn't take activist abortion foe, creepy dickhead and fulltime hypocrite Randall Terry to hog the spotlight on the murder of Dr. George Tiller in Kansas. Among other things, Terry said that Tiller basically caused his own death, having brought it on himself for his participation in the "slaughter of the innocents".

Never mind, Randy, that the accused killer, one Scott P. Roeder, 51, was an active participant on your blog. Never mind, Randy, that one James Charles Kopp, who murdered a New York reproductive health doctor in 1998, was a known close associate of yours.

And while I can't find, in a cursory search of the Internets, any reference to the incident, I remember clearly way back in the early 1980s, Randy was the honcho of a group of anti-abortion rioters who took over a clinic somewhere in upstate New York. At some point during the violence, an employee of the clinic who was six months pregnant was hit in the stomach, resulting in the loss of her child.

So wouldn't you think that the person who did this would be willing -- no, eager -- to be charged with "murder of an unborn child" and demand the full punishment of the law? After all, these people are pretty mouthy when it comes to the "rights" of those unborn Americans.

No, you people are smart enough to know the answer to this: The guilty party (and I can't recall now who it was, but it was someone close to Randy, who had been rioting on his orders, thereby making Randy equally culpable) plea-bargained it down to something like "simple assault".
(If anyone can find this story, please let me know so I can get my facts straight.)

Hypocrites, every last fucking one of them. And who the fuck is Randy Terry to tell other people what to do with their lives when he can't even control his own? After all, he's divorced, alienated from most of his many children (including the gay one, naturally), and now married -- the obvious result of a midlife crisis -- to a woman 17 years his junior.

And this after he said in one of his books, "Families are destroyed as a father vents his mid life crisis by abandoning his wife for a 'younger, prettier model.' "

What was that line from the Xian bible about being so concerned with a mote in someone else's eye that you can't see the two-by-four in your own?

Like I say, every fucking one of them is a hypocrite. And while hypocrisy itself is not so bad in the long view of things, when it comes to Randy Terry and those of his ilk, it has led directly to the multiple bombings of women's clinics and the murder of many reproductive health providers in this country .

Enough is enough. I'd like to see him prosecuted for conspiracy to commit murder. Sadly, though, I don't see that happening. All I can see is more domestic terror coming down the road.
