Who is Scott Roeder?

Judy Thomas of the Kansas City Star has put together a good, quick profile. He is a long-timer on the anti-abortion fringe, and as part of the Freemen movement has been off the grid in other ways as well. He subscribes to an anti-abortion magazine called Prayer and Action News, which seems to be linked to the radical anti-abortion Army of God. The magazine once printed the AOG Manual, which makes the case for killing abortion providers. At the top of its website is this reaction to the killing of George Tiller:

A great day for unborn children scheduled to be murdered by Babykilling Abortionist George Tiller.
Now those children lives are spared from the Kansas BabyButcher, George Tiller.
George Tiller reaped what he sowed and is now in eternal hell.
Psalm 55:15 Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell: for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them.

Further down, the website lionizes Paul Hill as “American Hero.” Hill was executed in Florida in 2003 for the murder of two abortion providers in Pensacola in 1994.
