Chances are pretty good that you’ve already seen some mention of today’s Los Angeles Times story about the proud abortionist (in Arkansas–why is the LAT reporting on that?–but anyway…). Amy Wellborn has a thread going on it. Pretty sickening individual, I’m sure we can all agree, and not much to say that hasn’t already been said, once you’ve remarked on the novelty of his owning up to what he does.
But I’m intrigued by a comment on the Open Book thread from someone who signs himself as "GFvonB": "Sadly, he /is/ an American Hero. This is why America must die if the pro-life cause is to be victorious."
I certainly don’t want America to die, and as I’ve said more than once here I think the struggle for our national soul is far from settled. But I do have the nagging fear that the combination of our wealth, our pride, and a misguided conception of freedom may mean that only some kind of catastrophe will change our direction.
By the way, GFvonB has a blog called RadTrad, which in turn is part of a blog ring called The League of Evil Traditionalists.
