Remembering Terri
edit_button


Friday is the one-year anniversary of Terri Schiavo's death, and it is saddening that many states have not passed laws to protect the disabled. Terri Schiavo was not in a vegetative state and she was not in a coma. Terri Schiavo was disabled and her cruel husband allowed her to die. Today Michael Schiavo, her husband, is remarried.

Michael Schiavo has just released a very immature book whose purpose was to "settle some scores" with Terri's family. Remember, her family was the one that wanted to take care of Terri. They wanted to take her under their care and pay for every expense. Michael Schiavo didn't want what was best for Terri, he wanted to get remarried!

I'm happy to say that there is an alternative book that has just came out, this one by Terri's own family, the family that loved her. It's called A Life that Matters: the legacy of Terri Schiavo - a lesson for us all.

Hey "Moneybags" (really humble, Christ-like name BTW), or should I say, Dr. Moneybags?

What data did you use to make your brilliant "diagnosis" that Terrie wasn't a drooling vegetable?

You idiots are all the same: self-righteous, moronic hypocrites.

Guru,

Thank you for resorting to name calling and insults. That sure gets the message across!

I heard the reports from two physicians last year. I don't know their names anymore.

You said: "You idiots are all the same: self-righteous, moronic hypocrites."

Thank you.

Matthew 5:11-12

"Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you (falsely) because of me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven. Thus they persecuted the prophets who were before you."

Thank you, moneybags, for posting this short news brief. I had nearly all but forgotten the entire story! I now remember the jist of the debate, and it is saddening indeed. Woe are we, that a (potential-Christian?) sister should be taken away simply because her husband couldn't see past his own needs in the short term. It is truely a shame.

And in light of this new post by "the mundane guru," I thank you again for that passage. I almost wish I was I that was being ridiculed (although I guess I could be categorized in the 'self-righteous, moronic hyprocrites,' huh?).

I may not see how or why any one of us here is self-righteous, a moron, or an idiot, but at least it's only an opinion, to which we are all entitled.

MB -
I have just come from visiting guru's blog. Very depressing, sad, and self-absorbed.

I wonder how he came upon your blog. I wonder is he was searching for something, or if God led him to you.

He hasn't received an email, call, phonecall, etc in 5 days. Imagine how lonely he may be.

"But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your heavenly Father, for he makes his sun rise on the bad and the good, and causes rain to fall on the just and the unjust." Matthew 5:44-45
