Now You Know

No, by the grace of God, you will NOT plead ignorance. You will NOT testify that you never knew any better because no one ever taught you anything better. You will not plead that you were never told.

Terri Schiavo and the Pontius Pilate Meme

With this being Holy Week and Good Friday and Easter rapidly approaching, it's no wonder that judge James Whittemore of the Terri Schiavo case is being compared to Pontius Pilate.


On a dit, "Ce n'est que la vie,"
En trouvant des problèmes graves
don’t tous les hommes sont esclaves.
La mort nous a déjà saisi.

Notre esprit, où est-il parti?
Où se trouvent les âmes braves?
On a dit, "Ce n'est que la vie."

Ne serons-nous jamis guéris?
Nos juges, qu’est-ce qu’ils savent?
Les mains que Pilate se lave,
Elles restent toujours salies.
On a dit, "Ce n'est que la vie."


They said, "That’s the way that life goes,"
when finding the problems were grave
to which every man is a slave.
We’re already seized by death’s throes.

Who knows where our spirit now blows?
Or whither the souls that are brave?
The said, "That’s the way that life goes,"

Will our wounds never heal or close?
Do our judges know aught how to save?
The hands that Pilate would lave,
still smack of the soil he sows.
They said, "That’s the way that life goes."

It doesn't surprise me that the modern day Pontius Pilates are trying their best to wash their hands of this. It also doesn't surprise me when prominent lawyer bloggers in the blogsphere niggle and dicker back and forth. That's exactly what I would expect them to do. Why else do you think that Christ called the lawyers and Pharisees of his day "vipers"?

Matthew 23:33 "Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?"

I do know that the handwashers are still covered in the iniquity of promoting and/or consenting to the murder of this innocent woman, Terri Schindler-Schiavo. If they succeed in murdering her, let the guilt of her blood be on them and on their children. How is it that these lawyers and bloggers and commenters against Terri's case, who consider themselves so intelligent and so educated and so wise, how is it they fancy they can read the signs in the sky or the signs in the law books, but they can't read the signs of the times?!

God and history will remember these murderers, long after the pundits of this instant and the lawyers are dust.

You've been told and NOW YOU KNOW.
