God Bless Terri Schiavo

A long ordeal is now over for Terri Schiavo and her grieving parents. Her soul's imprisonment in her earthly body has reached its end, and for that, I am grateful.

Now that Terri is in a better place, my heart goes out to Michael Schiavo. Those of us who have actually take the time to read the TIMELINE and GUARDIAN AD LITEM reports on this case know the truth: Michael Schiavo spent years clinging to the hope that his wife would awaken from her slumber. When he finally accepted the fact that her brain no longer had the capacity for conscious thought, he set things in motion to save her from a horrible existence. Ignorant people have called him terrible names. He will likely spend the next few years under tight security, targeted by the "right to life" whackos who love life so much they'd put a bullet in your head to prove it.

National poll after national poll indicates people recognize that this whole media circus was created by manipulative Republican leadership. By interjecting Congress into a family affair they may have energized elements of their religious base, but they betrayed the core principles of conservatism, showed hypocrisy regarding the "sanctity of marriage", and scoffed at the US constitution. Not to mention grandstanding and shameless opportunism.

When Republicans of GOOD FAITH are ready to REALLY talk about how we can preserve life, Democrats will be ready to talk about the 7 million children living in poverty in the United States... or the 45 million citizens lacking access to healthcare... or the deadly illnesses cause by industrial pollution... or... well, you get the point.

Terri, by any definition recognized by medical science, left us fifteen years ago. This great tragedy puts me in deep sorrow for her parents and husband, but It is time to let her go in our hearts. What should remain in our minds, however, is the obscene lengths that certain politicians have gone to, in order to use this poor woman for their own political purposes. Senator Bill Frist, Rep. Tom Delay, the abomnible Randall Terry, and many others should have to stand in judgement for their actions before the voters of America.

OK that should have been abominable. The thought still stands, however!

AMEN to that. A friend of mine sent me an email from GOPUSA, the Gannon/Guckert backers. Here's some of the text of the email:

"The Terri Schiavo case may be the beginning of the war for the Supreme Court and the rollback of liberal judicial tyranny!

In its special report, NewsMax reports that an out-of-control judiciary -- "legislating" gay marriage, forced starvation, and worse -- must be stopped."


The email was from Bobby Eberle, President. Can you say, "CooCoo For Cocoa Puffs?"
