Scott Roeder, the anti-government, anti-abortion extremist who shot and killed a doctor while he was attending church, has been charged with one count of first-degree murder and two counts of aggravated assault.

I guess it only counts as terrorism when you commit crimes in the name of a non-Christian god.

    Jesse Ventura asked the right question: Exactly how many white christianists have we water boarded in the last eight years?

  • Shalom Joseph,

    From Conor Friedersdorf

    Would these predominantly conservative officials, commentators and writers be comfortable if President Obama declared two or three extremist pro-lifers as ?enemy combatants?? Should Pres. Obama have the prerogative to order the waterboarding of these uncharged, untried detainees? Should he be able to listen in on phone conversations originating from evangelical churches where suspected abortion extremists hang out? The answer is probably that different ?War on Terror hawks? ? anyone have a better term for this? ? would react differently, but as a matter of law, it seems to me that if they?d gotten their way during the Bush Administration, President Obama would have the power to take all those steps and more…”

    B’shalom,

    Jeff

  • I say we just call it “the war on religious extremists” to lump together anyone who uses terror to push their own religious agenda.

    I understand that Roeder has only received state charges thus far. Federal domestic terrorism charges may be forthcoming.
