On Tuesday, for example, my colleague Colby Cosh argued that we should be wary about putting too much emphasis on religion as the “evidence of the specifically Islamic nature of Hasan’s mania emerges.” After all, there were no doubt other factors at play. It would be “pretty stupid,” he argued, to draw a straight, simple line between jihadist beliefs and the Fort Hood massacre.
But back in June, when George Tiller, America’s most enthusiastic practitioner of partial-birth abortion, was murdered, Mr. Cosh took to these pages to argue that the killer was the logical extension of the pro-life movement, and that pro-life activists who denounced the abortionist’s murder were no better than Pontius Pilate, washing their hands of something in which they were deeply complicit.
