I asked Mr. Ruse about it and he sent me this...
Earlier in the day on Friday I received links to a couple of stories regarding statements attributed to Austin Ruse. Link: Right Wing Watch.
It is all very unfortunate. I wanted to check with Mr. Ruse before posting anything on the stories, and he kindly replied to my email.
I take him at his word. He is in my prayers.

My comment on this kind of stuff...
We all make mistakes and say things that can be misconstrued, taken out of context - and sometimes no matter what we say to explain ourselves, it's already out there - along with consequences.
Let's really pray for one another and forgive one another - all of the time.
Never joke about shooting anyone. Do not even suggest it, because I have an idea that there may be more than a few deranged people who might take it upon themselves to act on it.
Though pro-abortion and anti-religious progressives say similar things and do worse things, Catholics are called to a higher standard. Hence even terminology such as the "biological solution" for your enemies can be misconstrued as un-Christian and contrary to the Gospel.
