It shows me that the Randall Terry's and his ilk of fanatics are not embraced by the majority of this nation and that our judges and courts won't be swayed by emotional religious wing-nuts.

3. May the Lord Guard and Protect Judge Greer...
...and his family.


CLEARWATER, Fla. - Amid the pitched legal battle over Terri Schiavo that has been fought through his court, Pinellas County Circuit Judge George Greer has been under the protection of armed guards, and friends say his family also is protected

Death threats have been made against him for allowing Michael Schiavo to remove the feeding tube that has kept his 41-year-old wife alive for the past 15 years, and the Southern Baptist church that Greer belonged to for years has asked him to leave the congregation.


Greer a conservative Christian and longtime Republican known for an easy manner has become the public face of the judiciary in this internationally watched fight. But despite the mounting pressure, he has been steadfast in his rulings that Terri Schiavo is in a persistent vegetative state and did not want to be kept alive artificially.

"There are very few people who have shown the will to stand up to raw power," said Stetson University Law Professor Michael Allen, who has studied the Schiavo case. "He's one."

4. I can always respect people who enforce the Constitution...
Republican, Democrat...we may disagree politically, but anyone who goes above partisan bullshit to defend the law of the land is okay in my book.

6. Yes!
I will admit that I thought there was a very real possibility that the Supreme Court would divide on the issue.

I would not have had faith in the federal courts and in Florida especially, to do their duty.
