I'm perturbed that those who are in favor of the murder of this doctor are disparagingly calling their opponents "holier than thou" or "sanctimonious." This has nothing to do with the saintliness (or false saintliness) of anyone. It's a basic Christian belief to love your enemies. This includes not only your next door neighbor whose dog keeps digging up your rhododendrons, but extends even to adulterers, thieves, and murderers.
I don't see how the "righteous" vengeance that some of you are promoting is compatible with the teachings of Our Lord.
It's certainly appropriate to be disgusted and horrified by this, but to demand retribution at the hands of man? I think that crosses the line from holy suffering to sinful, barbaric bloodlust.
Of course, this is not an argument I intend to somehow "win." I cannot fully control my own desires, much less the desires of others. But I would ask that those with anger turn to prayer, and ask God that those who require repentance repent, that the lives of innocents be spared, and that this crazy mixed up world wakes up and sees fully the atrocities that it commits. If that request is too "sanctimonious" for you, I apologize. I am only advocating what I was catechized to advocate.
