Mark Kellner writes in the Adventist Review of the Montana plane crash.
Pro-life activist Gingi Edmonds writes about Bud Feldkamp, the dentist whose family was killed. I think his “investments” shocking and scandalous–but I find the article itself a tragedy, as well.
Update: Alex Carpenter writes to say,
“Bill, you seem to intimate that this is not the time to discuss abortion given this tragic loss. I agree.
But then why did you link to (draw attention to) an article that does precisely what isn’t appropriate right now?
Think about what a family member would experience seeing a pastor in their community directing folks to this random, factually-flawed story politicizing their loss.”
If it is factually flawed, then perhaps Spectrum should have a reporter write it’s own article about this Adventist dentist who owns a chain of abortion mills.
Politicizing? The article is pointing out the contrast between a man grieving for his own loss while contributing in a major way to the loss of the children of other parents. This isn’t “politicizing,” it’s asking us to come to terms with the horror of one of the greatest crimes of human history, the wholesale slaughter of the innocent. I disagree with the author in this: I don’t think God is using a plane crash to teach him a lesson. But if he learns a lesson from it, and values human life as a result, that would be a good thing. If not … a higher tribunal awaits.
