A Tale of Two Churches...

It is hard to think of anything than can be added to this article. The reporter does an excellent job laying out the parallels. While the Vatican is condemning the starvation of Terri Schiavo by her husband, Bishop Lynch of Florida is trying to justify Michael's starvation of Terri.

Now Michael Schiavo has remarried, in the Church of course, only 10 months after Terri's murder. His illegitimate children aged 2 1/2 and 3 attended the wedding.

Read it and weep.

The final line is especially chilling.

"It's unknown if Jodi Centonze Schiavo has executed a living will."

This whole thing is just pure evilness. It is really a scary situation, both the murder of Terri and the silence of the Church down there. For shame.

I just don't know what to say anymore to anything. Particularly regarding the tragic and horrifying state of the Church. Honestly I think I'll need lots of prayer for the intention that I am not tempted to 'jump off the ship on the right side'. That sounds so bad, I know,(and I won't really, of course).....but all I can do is throw my hands up and kneel down. Tertulliana, I am glad you still have the 'UMPH' to even comment on these abuses.

Of course the whole thing is an abomination (especially since they try to claim it is "mercy"), but isn't it revealing that the main criterion was "where the medical experts had concluded that a patient's condition would not improve over time...". I guess anyone with a terminal condition should be starved to death, then...
