At least 4 officers, multiple civilians injured in ongoing active shooter situation at Planned Parenthood

Colorado Springs police spokeswoman says, "We still have a gunman that is out there."

Horseshit. I never asserted - and do not assert- any such "equivalence".

You could have saved all the time spent with that cut-n-paste garbage. But I suppose it was cathartic for you, Beardie or Beardie-Clone, even though it recapitulates your usual assertion that the Israeli government is totally blameless, whatever it may get up to.

(CNN)[Breaking news alert, posted at 8:30 p.m. ET Friday]
A police officer shot during Friday's siege at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs has died, the Colorado Fraternal Order of Police said on Twitter.

Updated at 8:34 p.m.:
At least 11 people, including five police officers, were injured when a gunman attacked a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado on Friday. Officials noted the number could rise as they secure and process the crime scene, while the Colorado Attorney General's office tweeted that there was a "tragic loss of life." Police captured the suspected gunman at 4:52 p.m. local time; his identity remains unknown.

The Colorado Springs clinic is not the first Planned Parenthood facility to come under attack this year. On October 1, an unknown arsonist threw an ignited container of gasoline inside one of the organization's centers in Southern California. The Southern Poverty Law Center identified three similar incidents at Planned Parenthood facilities in Illinois, Louisiana, and Washington in recent months. In September, the FBI warned law-enforcement agencies throughout the country about "lone offenders using tactics of arsons and threats all of which are typical of the pro-life extremist movement."


NB: The "pro-life extremest movement" is overwhelmingly comprised of those who claim to be Christians.

The leaders of Planned Parenthood are wisely withholding judgment. They have nothing to gain by making a premature statement. Most likely, the assailant is an anti-abortion, right-wing, Christian extremist - but we don't know that for sure. Still, the right-wing Christians, even the non-violent ones, have targeted Planned Parenthood unfairly for decades. They completely ignore all the good that Planned Parenthood does for women in need in the United States. I frequently speak out in Catholic circles in support of the good work done by Planned Parenthood, but I know I'm taking a risk every time I say something favorable about Planned Parenthood.

Please note that there are also Christians who have a very favorable opinion of Planned Parenthood. I'm one of them.

I'm sure Greg is making the point that Islamist is removed from Islam too, but try telling that to people who are gullible enough to mistrust people based on their heritage. The words purposely sound similar.

Mind you, these US terrorists get their justification from distorting religious views on when a chemical reaction becomes one of Jesus's sunbeams.

Terrorists all the same.

A pity because away from criminals, debate on the important topic of abortion can never be had whilst ever idiots think their invisible friend has a valid point to make.

This incident has about as much to do with Jesus as Islamist terrorism has to do with Allah - nothing whatsoever - both are cases of extremists using religion as an excuse for their extremism, and crass arguments like "your terrorism is nastier than my terrorism" doesn't hack it.
All religions, by their very nature, are open to abuse, and all the major religions have a track record of terrorism, abuse and persecution going back centuries - Christianity is one of the front runners in the Abuse Stakes historically.
The fact that some religious fanatics are less abusive than others at the present time is immaterial - they all hang there like a Sword of Damocles waiting to be misused by one bunch of nutters or another - don't turn your back on any of them!
One thing is certain - religion and politics is a toxic mix, as what is happening today is proving every time we open a newspaper or switch on the news.

My money is with GregF on this one-I find it a bit annoying that people are trying to discourage the obvious conclusion. The FBI recently sent out warnings that Planned Parenthood Clinics were in danger of terrorist attack, and This is the fifth in assaults on PP clinics since the fraudulent "Baby Parts" video was released this Summer--and it is more likely than not connected--it would be perilous to ignore it.

Steve is right in his comment about 'Best to Wait'. There's a lot we don't know. For example, none of the reports I've seen say he is a practicing Christian. Maybe he is, maybe not. But making the link in the headline until we know is presumptuous. Equally, bringing in the GOP (who I don't support at all, by the way), when he seems not to be affliated with any party is too early.

Well yes, but have you got any evidence that this works? Have you read the Guardian piece? The approach isn't working at all well in Colorado by the looks of it. I'm afraid that, from here, it looks like your nation takes a rather weak-kneed approach to powerful lobby groups, whether they be evangelists, gun fanciers, anti-abortionists, big corporations or Israel supporters. The upshot is almost half the country not believing in evolution, gun crime and mass killings out of control, vulnerable women and medical staff under siege in clinics, the most polluting nation on earth per capita and a constant running sore in the Middle East. Not saying that similar issues don't pop up elsewhere.   They do. But from here it's hard to see exactly who's running your country.

The younger Mr. Dear was raised as a Baptist, Ms. Ross[his former wife] said in an interview in Goose Creek, S.C., where she now lives. He was religious but not a regular churchgoer, a believer but not one to harp on religion. "He believed wholeheartedly in the Bible," she said.

Agreed. He is a criminal and he is opposed to abortion. Not enough in that say he is a Christian ...

Now we have some evidence he is a Christian. As I said a post or two above, that was not in the articles I read when I made the post we are talking about, I accepted I hadn't read it and now have and that affects my opinion.

The sort of evidence we have now. Which was not around, as far as I can tell, when the thread was titled.

No, I didn't miss the question mark. But as a few of the opening posts point out, that's not really a get-out, because you have made the association.

We could go through the same thing on the word 'terrorist' as well (and did the question mark qualify 'Christian' or 'terrorist'? Who can tell?) I don't think it helpful to call every shooter a terrorist, and although this guy seems to have swallowed the anti-abortion stuff, I have yet to see - and it may come, I can't read everything! - anything to suggest he was more than an individual acting alone.
