got Holy War In The Midwest????

Kansas' attorney general, a vocal abortion opponent, might leave office frustrated in his attempts to prosecute the state's most visible abortion provider.

Attorney General Phill Kline suffered another setback Wednesday when a judge refused to reinstate 30 misdemeanor charges Kline had filed against Dr. George Tiller, alleging he performed illegal late-term abortions.

The same judge dismissed the charges last week.

Kline, a Republican who leaves office in less than two weeks, responded by naming a special prosecutor to pursue Tiller's case.

But he acknowledged that Paul Morrison, the abortion rights Democrat who ousted him from office in the November election, could abolish the special prosecutor's job after he becomes attorney general on Jan. 8.

And Sedgwick County District Attorney Nola Foulston said the special prosecutor will have no authority to file charges against Tiller in that county. She successfully argued twice in six days that Kline couldn't file charges because she didn't consent to it. If Tiller is prosecuted, she said, her office will do it.

"Our power and authority is to prosecute all of the crimes that occur within this county," Foulston told reporters. "You just can't walk in and make those filings without having gone through the regular hoops."

Some Times One Just Has To Ask:
What if Dear Old Pat Is Right???
And what IF the Terrorists Are Christianists???
Now That They Have Lost The Power Of The State To Persecute For Jesus???
Or are we suppose to make the big mental leap here that when Christianist Terrorists are engaged in Christianist Terrorism, that is some sort of Structurally Distinct Reality from other forms of Terrorism, because Christianists are Following The Will Of God!!!

You know, slaying and slewing, in a biblically literalists Manner....
