I posted this in GD, and it sank like a rock...
A question for the religio-fascists Re: Shiavo case...


You nutcases always bleat about believing in 'God's plan", blah, blah, blah.. right? Well, it appears to this particular outsider that your "God" decided about 15 years ago that Terri Schiavo's number was up. And through the heresy of modern medecine, she's been kept barely alive since. So, why do you wish to continue ignoring God's will?

1. Actually, Schiavo abused her body (Abomination time).
If you think about it, her bulimia caused the potassium deficiency, which caused her brain death.

Wouldn't that technically be a suicide attempt?

Isn't suicide the only sin which can't be forgiven?

Aren't suicides abominations in the eyes of Gawd?

Have to check with biblical scholars, though.

4. Well, yeah.. but..
it was really kind of aimed at Freeps and others who think that bringng her sandwiches and water bottles will help.. at the very least, I expected a few people to csall me out on my lack of diplomacy...

3. I actually heard a caller to Hannity's show oppose him on this
He disagreed with Hannity's statement that "we shouldn't play God with her life". (Hannity obviously supports keeping her connected to life support) The caller said, "but isn't 'playing God' what got her in this position in the first place?" So Sean had to find a bigger shovel to try to dig himself out of his pit of reason.

Didn't work.

Next caller.
