Crossed The Tiber

An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

I was born into the Catholic faith. At 14, I was "born again" and found Jesus personally but lost His Church. After thirty years as an evangelical protestant, I have come full circle to find that He has been there all the time, in the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I wish others to find the beauty and truth of the Catholic faith as I have found.

We, the four Catholic Bishops of the Dioceses of Kansas, unequivocally condemn the murder of Dr. George Tiller that occurred in Wichita earlier today. The Catholic Church believes that every human life is sacred. The murder of a human being is the gravest of crimes and is an intrinsic evil. Such an act of violence against human life is a contradiction of the most fundamental principle of the Pro-Life movement. The fact that this attack occurred in a church, a place of prayer and worship, only adds to the horror of this terrible crime. We prayerfully commend Dr. George Tiller to the mercy of God and we pray for comfort and consolation for his family and friends.

WHOA! this was the first I heard of this! First of all... SHAME! What in the world? I cannot think of something worse! How that killing will do any good to the pro-life movement is beyond me!

Thanks goodness the Church is speaking out. That was a kind address the Bishops gave.

Thank you for posting this from our bishops in KS. It is hard to convince people abortion is wrong because it is murder and then have this happen...defeats the purpose. oy!
