Tiller: 2 Degrees

George Tiller, a physician who provided late-term abortions to women with high health risks, was fatally shot in his church. Obviously, the shooter has no acquaintance with the concept of sanctuary.

The famous Kevin Bacon site demonstrated that there are less than six degrees of separation between most people. That is, if you know someone who knows someone, etc., in six or fewer such links you can put any two people on the ends of such a chain. I didn’t know it before, but I turn out to be just two degrees of separation from George Tiller; I have a friend who knew Tiller and counted him as a friend.

    According to some, this wasn’t a Real ChurchTM so the concept of sanctuary is moot.

    A sad day for Dr. Tiller’s family, for women, for freedom, and for peace within and without churches.
