McCain's other dubious association

Looks like Sen. John McCain doesn't have a problem "palling" around with domestic terrorists either. Or at least speaking in 1993 at a conference of the Oregon Citizens Alliance where the vice-chairwoman, Marilyn Shannon, praised a woman, Rachelle Shannon (no relation), who shot and killed an abortion doctor in 1984. Rachelle Shannon "considered herself a soldier in the underground terror organization, Army of God," and Army of God's Web site describes how Shannon transformed into a domestic terrorist. McCain didn't denounce Marilyn Shannon's support. He didn't denounce Rachelle Shannon's violent actions. Instead, Marilyn Shannon served as a McCain delegate at the Republican National Convention.

So, let me get this straight. A former domestic terrorist holds a coffee for you when you're running for the state Senate, and you are labeled a friend of terrorists and said to have bad judgment. You're said to "pal around with terrorists." But attend a conference where a domestic terrorist is praised for killing a doctor who was not breaking the law in any way with his practice, and it's no big deal? In fact, the woman who did the praising becomes one of your delegates. Talk about double standards.

Listen, I know some people think it's just a-okay to murder abortion doctors because somehow they are killing innocent life. Never mind that abortion is legal. Never mind that killing anyone, even an abortion doctor, pretty much negates your argument about killing innocent life. Just because you, the anti-abortion activist, think the abortion doctor is doing something wrong does not make it so. Again, abortion is legal. Therefore, you, the anti-abortion activist, are also killing innocent life. The hypocrisy is astounding.

One other thing to add: McCain voted against making anti-abortion violence a federal crime, among other things. McCain doesn't think protecting innocent lives is a big deal either.

Any coward who supports abortion has the blood of babies on their hands.

SAY THIS PRAYER: Dear Jesus, I am a sinner and am headed to eternal hell because of my sins. I believe you died on the cross to take away my sins and to take me to heaven. Jesus, I ask you now to come into my heart and take away my sins and give me eternal life.

Rev. Don--

As a matter of fact, there are a number of scripture passages I pray and meditate over regularly. Perhaps you should too. One is Matthew 23. Are you familiar with it? Perhaps you should think deeply about it.

Another you might want to consider is found in Luke 18:9-14.

Anyone who kills has Jesus' blood on his hands. Not just abortion providers.

Killers of abortion providers are no better than those who perform abortions. And anyone who defends them sins.

Rev. Don got schooled. Although maybe we should be nice to the old fellow, his group does kill people.
