There aren't that many things that really piss me off, but religion and it's irrational behaviour is one of them. The amount of bloodshed in the name of one religion or other, is without equal. Moreover, the number of people that believe that "God" told them personally to do something, is astonishing. Anybody else hearing voices would be certifiably insane, but not if it is in the name of religion. Any bets the perpetrator of this dastardly deed will claim "God" spoke to him personally, and this was his life's purpose?

A lightning rod in the bitter culture war over abortion, George Tiller has been picketed, bombed and shot in the arms.
He was shot to death just after 10 a.m. local time as he walked into Reformation Lutheran Church in Wichita, Kan., the Wichita Eagle reported.
Police contacted by AFP could not immediately confirm the report but said details of an incident at the church would be released later in the day.
Tiller, 67, one of the few doctors who still performs late-term abortions in the U.S., has been demonized by abortion opponents who regularly protest outside his clinic, located just off a busy highway that runs through Wichita.
In 1986, someone placed a bomb on the roof of the clinic, seriously damaging the building.
In 1993, Tiller was shot in both arms outside the clinic. Tiller recovered, and his assailant received an 11-year prison term.
Some 2,000 protesters were also arrested outside the clinic during summer-long demonstrations in 1991.
He was acquitted in March on charges that he performed 19 illegal abortions in 2003.
