"A place of peace and tranquility" ?

Have you seen this statement, made by Kansas Judge Warren Wilbert, who recently sentenced the guy--Scott Roeder--who killed late-term abortionist George Tiller (a.k.a."Tiller the Killer") in Wichita last May? Apparently this judge could have made Roeder eligible for parole on the murder charge after 25 years, but said there was evidence that Roeder had stalked Tiller and added that killing him in a church (which Roeder did) made the crime heinous because a house of worship is meant to be "a place of peace and tranquility."


"Your honor, do you honestly believe that Roeder's having gunned-down George 'Tiller the Killer' in a church made his crime all the more heinous because a house of worship is meant to be 'a place of peace and tranquility'?"

"Let me just say--for the record--that what is truly heinous in this case is the brutal butchering of an innocent, unborn child within her mother's womb, which is a far more sacred place than is any church, epitomizing 'a place of peace and tranquility'."
