Pro-Life School Bus Firebombed in Rockford, Illinois

Local pro-life advocates are upset that a pro-life school bus, run by a local Catholic Church, has been firebombed. They’re also disappointed the local media has reported very little on the incident.
Frank Munda, who runs the pro-life blog ProLife Corner, has more details about what happened:
A large school bus, owned by Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Academy, that is well-known throughout Rockford for its beautiful pro-life pictures and words asking people to “pray to end abortion”, was fire bombed on Friday night. The damage was extensive to the bus as windows were broken in on both sides and fire bombs were thrown inside to cause maximum damage.
It has been speculated that this bombing of a pro-life Christian school bus is in retaliation for the closing of the Rockford abortion mill that is located not far from where the school bus was attacked. It’s interesting that abortion supporters in Rockford not only kill children in the womb but may well have destroyed a school bus used by children as an act of revenge for the closing of their child killing center.
Munda says that not only has the local media ignored what happened but they highlighted an old act of violence from the pro-life side.
On the day this pro-life school bus was viciously attacked, the Rockford Register Star ran a story about an attack against a building made by a pro-lifer twelve years ago.
They brought up again the story of Fr. John Earl who damaged the Rockford abortion mill in 2000. Fr. Earl paid his debt to society and has been a model citizen ever since for over a decade, but the Register Star brings up that 12-year-old story again, using Father Earl’s reassignment to a new parish as an opportunity to rehash what should now be a thing of the past and yet they ignored a current attack- the firebombing of a pro-life school bus.
The Register Star did run a story about another vehicle that was fire bombed in Rockford at approximately the same time the hate crime occurred against pro-life Christians. Thus it is obvious that fire bombings are newsworthy stories. It is speculated by some that the non-bus bombing was nothing more than a smokescreen to cover up for the bombing of a Christian school bus. The pro-aborts will more than likely say there is a mad bomber loose in Rockford. It will be interesting to hear their spin.

The Register Star again shows it may have a deep and firmly held bigotry towards Christians and pro-lifers by bringing up incidents from 12 years ago and disregarding current acts of terrorism against Christian citizens. To this day the Register Star has never reported on the many documented hate crimes committed by the Rockford abortion mill and its supporters. At the time this article is being written, they have completely ignored a hate crime against Christian pro-lifers and an act of violence (firebombing) and arson against school children, yet they want to continue to regurgitate an incident by a pro-lifer 12 years ago.
