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.

Pope Benedict XVI's Inaugural Homily

Here is the text of the complete homily delivered by Pope Benedict XVI on the occasion of his inaugural mass on Sunday April 24, 2005:

Homily - Inauguration Mass

Homily of Pope Benedict XVI of the Mass for the Imposition of the Pallium, the Conferral of the Fisherman's Ring, and the Inauguration of the Pontificate, given in St. Peter's Square, Sunday 24 April 2005.

Your Eminences,
My dear Brother Bishops and Priests,
Distinguished Authorities and Members of the Diplomatic Corps,
Dear Brothers and Sisters,

During these days of great intensity, we have chanted the litany of the saints on three different occasions: at the funeral of our Holy Father John Paul II; as the Cardinals entered the Conclave; and again today, when we sang it with the response: Tu illum adiuva – sustain the new Successor of Saint Peter. On each occasion, in a particular way, I found great consolation in listening to this prayerful chant. How alone we all felt after the passing of John Paul II – the Pope who for over twenty-six years had been our shepherd and guide on our journey through life! He crossed the threshold of the next life, entering into the mystery of God. But he did not take this step alone. Those who believe are never alone – neither in life nor in death. At that moment, we could call upon the Saints from every age – his friends, his brothers and sisters in the faith – knowing that they would form a living procession to accompany him into the next world, into the glory of God. We knew that his arrival was awaited. Now we know that he is among his own and is truly at home. We were also consoled as we made our solemn entrance into Conclave, to elect the one whom the Lord had chosen. How would we be able to discern his name? How could 115 Bishops, from every culture and every country, discover the one on whom the Lord wished to confer the mission of binding and loosing? Once again, we knew that we were not alone, we knew that we were surrounded, led and guided by the friends of God. And now, at this moment, weak servant of God that I am, I must assume this enormous task, which truly exceeds all human capacity. How can I do this? How will I be able to do it? All of you, my dear friends, have just invoked the entire host of Saints, represented by some of the great names in the history of God’s dealings with mankind. In this way, I too can say with renewed conviction: I am not alone. I do not have to carry alone what in truth I could never carry alone. All the Saints of God are there to protect me, to sustain me and to carry me. And your prayers, my dear friends, your indulgence, your love, your faith and your hope accompany me. Indeed, the communion of Saints consists not only of the great men and women who went before us and whose names we know. All of us belong to the communion of Saints, we who have been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, we who draw life from the gift of Christ’s Body and Blood, through which he transforms us and makes us like himself. Yes, the Church is alive – this is the wonderful experience of these days. During those sad days of the Pope’s illness and death, it became wonderfully evident to us that the Church is alive. And the Church is young. She holds within herself the future of the world and therefore shows each of us the way towards the future. The Church is alive and we are seeing it: we are experiencing the joy that the Risen Lord promised his followers. The Church is alive – she is alive because Christ is alive, because he is truly risen. In the suffering that we saw on the Holy Father’s face in those days of Easter, we contemplated the mystery of Christ’s Passion and we touched his wounds. But throughout these days we have also been able, in a profound sense, to touch the Risen One. We have been able to experience the joy that he promised, after a brief period of darkness, as the fruit of his resurrection.

The Church is alive – with these words, I greet with great joy and gratitude all of you gathered here, my venerable brother Cardinals and Bishops, my dear priests, deacons, Church workers, catechists. I greet you, men and women Religious, witnesses of the transfiguring presence of God. I greet you, members of the lay faithful, immersed in the great task of building up the Kingdom of God which spreads throughout the world, in every area of life. With great affection I also greet all those who have been reborn in the sacrament of Baptism but are not yet in full communion with us; and you, my brothers and sisters of the Jewish people, to whom we are joined by a great shared spiritual heritage, one rooted in God’s irrevocable promises. Finally, like a wave gathering force, my thoughts go out to all men and women of today, to believers and non-believers alike.

Dear friends! At this moment there is no need for me to present a programme of governance. I was able to give an indication of what I see as my task in my Message of Wednesday 20 April, and there will be other opportunities to do so. My real programme of governance is not to do my own will, not to pursue my own ideas, but to listen, together with the whole Church, to the word and the will of the Lord, to be guided by Him, so that He himself will lead the Church at this hour of our history. Instead of putting forward a programme, I should simply like to comment on the two liturgical symbols which represent the inauguration of the Petrine Ministry; both these symbols, moreover, reflect clearly what we heard proclaimed in today’s readings.

The first symbol is the Pallium, woven in pure wool, which will be placed on my shoulders. This ancient sign, which the Bishops of Rome have worn since the fourth century, may be considered an image of the yoke of Christ, which the Bishop of this City, the Servant of the Servants of God, takes upon his shoulders. God’s yoke is God’s will, which we accept. And this will does not weigh down on us, oppressing us and taking away our freedom. To know what God wants, to know where the path of life is found – this was Israel’s joy, this was her great privilege. It is also our joy: God’s will does not alienate us, it purifies us – even if this can be painful – and so it leads us to ourselves. In this way, we serve not only him, but the salvation of the whole world, of all history. The symbolism of the Pallium is even more concrete: the lamb’s wool is meant to represent the lost, sick or weak sheep which the shepherd places on his shoulders and carries to the waters of life. For the Fathers of the Church, the parable of the lost sheep, which the shepherd seeks in the desert, was an image of the mystery of Christ and the Church. The human race – every one of us – is the sheep lost in the desert which no longer knows the way. The Son of God will not let this happen; he cannot abandon humanity in so wretched a condition. He leaps to his feet and abandons the glory of heaven, in order to go in search of the sheep and pursue it, all the way to the Cross. He takes it upon his shoulders and carries our humanity; he carries us all – he is the good shepherd who lays down his life for the sheep. What the Pallium indicates first and foremost is that we are all carried by Christ. But at the same time it invites us to carry one another. Hence the Pallium becomes a symbol of the shepherd’s mission, of which the Second Reading and the Gospel speak. The pastor must be inspired by Christ’s holy zeal: for him it is not a matter of indifference that so many people are living in the desert. And there are so many kinds of desert. There is the desert of poverty, the desert of hunger and thirst, the desert of abandonment, of loneliness, of destroyed love. There is the desert of God’s darkness, the emptiness of souls no longer aware of their dignity or the goal of human life. The external deserts in the world are growing, because the internal deserts have become so vast. Therefore the earth’s treasures no longer serve to build God’s garden for all to live in, but they have been made to serve the powers of exploitation and destruction. The Church as a whole and all her Pastors, like Christ, must set out to lead people out of the desert, towards the place of life, towards friendship with the Son of God, towards the One who gives us life, and life in abundance. The symbol of the lamb also has a deeper meaning. In the Ancient Near East, it was customary for kings to style themselves shepherds of their people. This was an image of their power, a cynical image: to them their subjects were like sheep, which the shepherd could dispose of as he wished. When the shepherd of all humanity, the living God, himself became a lamb, he stood on the side of the lambs, with those who are downtrodden and killed. This is how he reveals himself to be the true shepherd: “I am the Good Shepherd . . . I lay down my life for the sheep”, Jesus says of himself (Jn 10:14f). It is not power, but love that redeems us! This is God’s sign: he himself is love. How often we wish that God would make show himself stronger, that he would strike decisively, defeating evil and creating a better world. All ideologies of power justify themselves in exactly this way, they justify the destruction of whatever would stand in the way of progress and the liberation of humanity. We suffer on account of God’s patience. And yet, we need his patience. God, who became a lamb, tells us that the world is saved by the Crucified One, not by those who crucified him. The world is redeemed by the patience of God. It is destroyed by the impatience of man.

One of the basic characteristics of a shepherd must be to love the people entrusted to him, even as he loves Christ whom he serves. “Feed my sheep”, says Christ to Peter, and now, at this moment, he says it to me as well. Feeding means loving, and loving also means being ready to suffer. Loving means giving the sheep what is truly good, the nourishment of God’s truth, of God’s word, the nourishment of his presence, which he gives us in the Blessed Sacrament. My dear friends – at this moment I can only say: pray for me, that I may learn to love the Lord more and more. Pray for me, that I may learn to love his flock more and more – in other words, you, the holy Church, each one of you and all of you together. Pray for me, that I may not flee for fear of the wolves. Let us pray for one another, that the Lord will carry us and that we will learn to carry one another.

The second symbol used in today’s liturgy to express the inauguration of the Petrine Ministry is the presentation of the fisherman’s ring. Peter’s call to be a shepherd, which we heard in the Gospel, comes after the account of a miraculous catch of fish: after a night in which the disciples had let down their nets without success, they see the Risen Lord on the shore. He tells them to let down their nets once more, and the nets become so full that they can hardly pull them in; 153 large fish: “and although there were so many, the net was not torn” (Jn 21:11). This account, coming at the end of Jesus’s earthly journey with his disciples, corresponds to an account found at the beginning: there too, the disciples had caught nothing the entire night; there too, Jesus had invited Simon once more to put out into the deep. And Simon, who was not yet called Peter, gave the wonderful reply: “Master, at your word I will let down the nets.” And then came the conferral of his mission: “Do not be afraid. Henceforth you will be catching men” (Lk 5:1-11). Today too the Church and the successors of the Apostles are told to put out into the deep sea of history and to let down the nets, so as to win men and women over to the Gospel – to God, to Christ, to true life. The Fathers made a very significant commentary on this singular task. This is what they say: for a fish, created for water, it is fatal to be taken out of the sea, to be removed from its vital element to serve as human food. But in the mission of a fisher of men, the reverse is true. We are living in alienation, in the salt waters of suffering and death; in a sea of darkness without light. The net of the Gospel pulls us out of the waters of death and brings us into the splendour of God’s light, into true life. It is really true: as we follow Christ in this mission to be fishers of men, we must bring men and women out of the sea that is salted with so many forms of alienation and onto the land of life, into the light of God. It is really so: the purpose of our lives is to reveal God to men. And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution. Each of us is the result of a thought of God. Each of us is willed, each of us is loved, each of us is necessary. There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him. The task of the shepherd, the task of the fisher of men, can often seem wearisome. But it is beautiful and wonderful, because it is truly a service to joy, to God’s joy which longs to break into the world.

Here I want to add something: both the image of the shepherd and that of the fisherman issue an explicit call to unity. “I have other sheep that are not of this fold; I must lead them too, and they will heed my voice. So there shall be one flock, one shepherd” (Jn 10:16); these are the words of Jesus at the end of his discourse on the Good Shepherd. And the account of the 153 large fish ends with the joyful statement: “although there were so many, the net was not torn” (Jn 21:11). Alas, beloved Lord, with sorrow we must now acknowledge that it has been torn! But no – we must not be sad! Let us rejoice because of your promise, which does not disappoint, and let us do all we can to pursue the path towards the unity you have promised. Let us remember it in our prayer to the Lord, as we plead with him: yes, Lord, remember your promise. Grant that we may be one flock and one shepherd! Do not allow your net to be torn, help us to be servants of unity!

At this point, my mind goes back to 22 October 1978, when Pope John Paul II began his ministry here in Saint Peter’s Square. His words on that occasion constantly echo in my ears: “Do not be afraid! Open wide the doors for Christ!” The Pope was addressing the mighty, the powerful of this world, who feared that Christ might take away something of their power if they were to let him in, if they were to allow the faith to be free. Yes, he would certainly have taken something away from them: the dominion of corruption, the manipulation of law and the freedom to do as they pleased. But he would not have taken away anything that pertains to human freedom or dignity, or to the building of a just society. The Pope was also speaking to everyone, especially the young. Are we not perhaps all afraid in some way? If we let Christ enter fully into our lives, if we open ourselves totally to him, are we not afraid that He might take something away from us? Are we not perhaps afraid to give up something significant, something unique, something that makes life so beautiful? Do we not then risk ending up diminished and deprived of our freedom? And once again the Pope said: No! If we let Christ into our lives, we lose nothing, nothing, absolutely nothing of what makes life free, beautiful and great. No! Only in this friendship are the doors of life opened wide. Only in this friendship is the great potential of human existence truly revealed. Only in this friendship do we experience beauty and liberation. And so, today, with great strength and great conviction, on the basis of long personal experience of life, I say to you, dear young people: Do not be afraid of Christ! He takes nothing away, and he gives you everything. When we give ourselves to him, we receive a hundredfold in return. Yes, open, open wide the doors to Christ – and you will find true life. Amen.

Moonbats Who Call Themselves Catholic Begin Their Raving and Ranting.

Just in case anyone desires proof that the moonbats and muckadoos, even those who claim to be Catholic, hate our new Pope, here's the following from the internet (it didn't take them long to start with their bitterness and bile, did it?):

Oh God, this is a horrible day for my church ... I am probably completely out the door now. I can't believe the cardinals were such dimwitted creepazoids as to elect nasty-ass Ratzinger pope. I was Anybody But Bush in the last U.S. presidential election and I was Anybody But Ratzinger in this papal election. I can't believe they elected RatFink. My church is committing suicide. This guy is the most hardline cardinal, opposed to all winds of openness and all efforts to make the church responsive to the needs of the people. This is the guy who, when deep thinkers and impeccable scholars question elements of doctrinal policy, he just gags them and kicks them out. I'm gutted. May God save the church from RatFink's hands. Pope Benedict? Pope Maledict. I think I'm going to throw up.

That chunk of vituperative vomit against the Pope by an unhinged demoniac was followed by this:

Who he is and why he makes me sick: URL

Such persons who claim to be Christian, much less Catholic, need to leave the Church and stop pretending to be something that they are not. There's the door. Don't let it hit you in the ass on the way out.

You've been told and NOW YOU KNOW.

Habemus Papam! We Need to Sing a Te Deum.

Habemus Papam! We have a Pope. Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger is now Pope Benedict XVI. I can hear the shrieks and screams, the wailing and gnashing of teeth of every moonbat, "liberal," secularist and just plain nuts freak in the world, and particularly here in America. The feminists are wetting their panties. The front-tailed monkeys are screeching and hopping up and down as their knuckles drag the ground.

For the above reasons alone, we need to fall to our needs and thank the Lord our God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Pope Benedict XVI is a holy man who strikes fear and revulsion into the very hearts of those are the Church's staunchest enemies and detractors. They are having apoplectic fits even as I type this. Good! Pax et Bonum.

Cardinal Ratzinger has said:

"We are moving, toward a dictatorship of relativism which does not recognize anything as for certain and which has as its highest goal one's own ego and one's own desires."

He has also said that the modern world has jumped "from one extreme to the other: from Marxism to liberalism, even to libertinism; from collectivism to radical individualism; from atheism to a vague religious mysticism; from agnosticism to syncretism."

Our Blessèd new Pope Benedict XVI has also previously stated, "having a clear faith, based on the creed of the church, is often labeled today as fundamentalism."

Truer words were never spoken about how the modern culture and media have consistently sought to depict all Christians, not just Catholics, as fanatics or veritable maniacs. Here is a Pope who calls a spade a spade.

No wonder that the secular world shudders. It has always hated hearing the truth about itself. That is why they will detest our new Pope with as much fervent hatred as we will revere and love him.

Now thank we all our God.

As you know if you have been reading this blog, I have very recently left the Libertarian party after many, many years of being an active and contributing member. I have contributed to campaigns, stuffed envelopes, made phone calls and whatever I could do to promote the idea of liberty as our founding fathers knew it.

As you also know, I wrote in detail here about why I left a party that has abandoned the principles of liberty to espouse libertinism and murder.

Any political party that would cheer and actively support the murder of Terri Schiavo, abortion, and indeed, the murder of any and all cannot be my political party. Their stance is no longer a stance for liberty, it is a stance of irresponsible lunacy.

And speaking of irresponsible lunatics, here's what one mongoloid idiot on the internet has to say:

Here's a thoughtful individual who thinks that Terri Schiavo ought to have been kept alive, and doesn't have much good to say about those who disagree. For someone who says "I can't think of a hell deep enough for you all to fry in, but I don't have to think of one. God has that covered," he doesn't seem at all sure that God's going to be stern enough.

I've got a definition of hell for you: An eternity of this guy screaming in one ear and Brian Leiter screaming in the other.

That poor moron, going by the name of Mme. Puce or whatever it's calling itself, has a blog (if one can call it that) where it rarely posts anything at all, but its infrequency of posting must be taken for a mercy and a virtue. It's bad enough that such an uneducated and virtually illiterate troglodyte as Señorita Fuchsia even has a blog. Compounding the offense of its deliberate ignorance and subnormal IQ, it also has a total disregard for human life (you know, all those life forms who are superior to Frau Chartreuse).

I have a better definition of hell for you, Mlle. Mauve [or whatever ridiculous alias you don for the day]: Hell is that place wherein you and those of your ilk will treat one another through all eternity in the same manner you treated others on earth; that is to say with a total contempt for one another and an utter hatred of life. Hell is being eternally out of God's presence and in the presence of none but those such as you. You deserve one another. How utterly pitiable you would be, if it weren't for the fact that you defend and promote the murder of innocents. Even God has his limits in forgiveness: Matthew 12:31

I begin to suspect that T. H. White was absolutely right; stupidity such as yours really is the sin against the Holy Spirit.

You've been told and NOW YOU KNOW.

BOYCOTT FLORIDA! -- Terri Schiavo Aftermath

All of us who protested the murder of Terri Schindler-Schiavo need to send a loud and clear message to the state of Florida where that atrocity of inhumane torture, starvation and dehydration was committed.

It's not enough to hold Michael Schiavo, George Felon Felos and judge George W. Greer accountable. True, they were major players that brought about the cruel killing of Terri, but three men could never have done it alone. Just look at the mindset of these monsters in Pinellas Country, Florida.

Not to mention the Florida law enforcement agencies that enabled this murder when their sworn duty is to serve and to protect. Evidently they serve and protect murderers, not innocent life.

Don't forget the Florida legislature either and their role in this abomination. Don't forget the people of Florida who elected them and put these faithless and feckless legislators in power.

Don't buy products from Florida. Don't spend your vaction dollars in Florida. Don't plan or hold business or organizational conventions in Florida.

Let's him them where it hurts. So many championed and hastened Terri's death under the war cry of "Kill the people who cost money!" Fine. Money is their god. Let's hurt them in the only way they understand.

It will be a cold day in hell before I visit Florida as a tourist or spend my money at its theme parks (such as Disneyworld, Epcot Center, etc.) Why should our money go to support and enable them? Why should the money of pro-life individuals and organizations fatten Florida's coffers?

And as far as hurricane aid goes, never again will I donate to Florida after one of their many and repeated natural disasters. Never until we have sent a loud and clear message: Florida, we will NOT financially enable you to become the euthanasia center for the US or the world.

Remember when states were boycotted just for not declaring Martin Luther King Day as a paid state holiday? Remember the impact that had?

Florida and all states that support the killing of the innocent need to be sent the same message. We do not support you and neither will our dollars!

You've been told and NOW YOU KNOW.

Our fight to preserve innocent life would be so much easier if we did not have to contend with the ignorant and delusional rantings of bloodthirsty monsters such as this:

Today a bunch of rightie bloggers are worked up over the case of a Georgia woman who they say is neither terminal nor comatose but is being deprived of care by a grandaughter who, naturally will inherit a bunch of money when Granny dies. In other words, they've found their new Terri Schiavo.

Now, if the facts of the case are as the bloggers describe them, poor Granny is indeed being callously and cruelly starved to death. However, if the facts of the case are as the bloggers describe them, I will eat my sneakers.

Sneakers, huh? That's considerably more to eat than you inhumane bastard spawn gave to Terri Schiavo to eat when you championed her starvation and dehydration. Bon appétit! With any luck, you'll choke on those sneakers and there will be no one around to administer the Heimlich manoeuvre, which no doubt you would refuse anyway. After all, you're so set against any measure that would prolong life, much less the life of one who is "brain dead."

The liberal Left and all their deathist compatriots are truly a malignant cancer which, if left untreated, will surely be the death of this country.

You've been told and NOW YOU KNOW.


Slippery slope, huh? Did I not tell you that we already have slid down that slope to the bottom?

I can assure you, there are more murder-minded individuals such as this reprehensible Beth Gaddy and the equally odious Michael Schiavo than most of you ever imagined. What's worse, now the murderers are not only using fraud and perjury to get their way and commit their atrocities, they are being backed by the out-of- control judiciary and the lying liberal left.

Beth Gaddy, you are certainly making a name for yourself. Unfortunately, it's not the sort of name that one can repeat in polite society.

You've been told and NOW YOU KNOW.

Richard at is asking for help to get the word out about this:

Shiavo case Redux in Georgia: Mae Magouirk…not comatose,not vegetative,not terminal, BEING STARVED AND DEHYDRATED TO DEATH (Update)

Please propagate throughout the Internet!

UPDATE 1(noticed question in comments about authentication): This was confirmed by lengthy telephone call before it was posted. I personally spoke with Kenneth Mullinax, and have more details than has been posted. We do need to seek copies of court documents for posting

From: The Family of Mae Magouirk
To: BlogsForTerri and their readers
Subject: Family Seeking Help From BFT Bloggers and Media
April 6, 2005

Contact: Kenneth Mullinax Ph: 205-408-7598

Why is Hospice LaGrange, Ga. withholding nourishment?

Mae Magouirk is being withheld nourishment and fluids and the Provisions of her Living Will are not being honored at the Hospice-LaGrange, (1510 Vernon Street, LaGrange “Troup County” Georgia, (706-845-3905) a subsidiary of the LaGrange Hospital in LaGrange Georgia.

Her family is desperately seeking to save her life before she dies of malnourishment and dehydration.

Mae Magouirk IS NOT comatose and she IS NOT vegetative. She is not terminal!

Despite these facts the Hospice and Beth Gaddy (706-882-9124), a school teacher at LaGrange’s Calloway Middle School and granddaughter of Mae Magouirk(who according to "heresay," may have been mismanaging funds of the 85 yr-old woman) have been denying her proactive nourishment or fluids (via a nose administered feeding tube or fluids via an IV) since March 28 without prior legal consent; against the wishes of her Living Will and against the wishes of Mae Magouirk’s closest living next of kin. Mae Magouirk’s next of kin are: Mr. A. B. McLeod (Her Brother 256-236-1331) and Mrs. Lonnie Ruth Mullinax (Her sister 205-408-7598) both of nearby Anniston, Alabama.

Under Georgia law, unless a medical durable power of attorney is in place, your closest living next of kin are stipulated to make all medical decisions. When Mae Magouirk’s closest living next of kin lodged a complaint with Hospice LaGrange’s in-house attorney Carol Todd (706-882-1411) last Thursday, March 31, Ms. Todd checked Mae Magouirk’s case file and upon examination of both documents discovered that Beth Gaddy DID NOT have the durable medical power of attorney for Mae Magouirk and upon closer examination of Mae Magouirk’s Living Will ascertained that fluids and nourishment were ONLY TO BE WITHHELD if she was either comatose or vegetative.


Nor is Mae Magouirk terminally ill. Her local LaGrange, Ga. cardiologist, Dr. James Brennan (706-812-4308) and Dr. Raed Aqel, (205-934-9999) a highly acclaimed interventional cardiologist at the nationally renowned University of Alabama-Birmingham Medical Center have determined that Mae Magouirk’s aortic dissection is contained and not presently life threatening.

Two weeks ago, Mae Magouirk’s aorta had a dissection and she was hospitalized in the LaGrange Hospital in LaGrange, Ga. Her aortic problem was at first determined to be severe and she was admitted in the intensive care Unit. Her granddaughter, Beth Gaddy, a teacher at the Calloway Middle School in LaGrange, stated that she held Mae Magouirk’s medical power of attorney and thus invoked said powers against the wishes of Mae Magouirk’s closest living next of kin by having her moved to Hospice-LaGrange. While at Hospice-LaGrange, Beth Gaddy stated that her wishes were for no nourishment for Mae Magouirk v Probate Judge Donald Boyd (706) 883-1690)…
Court CASE NUMBER: Estate 138-05

Attorney for saving Mae’s life: Jack Kirby, Kirby & Roberts, (706) 884-2992***

Update 2:
On the personal side, I know that many if not all of you are emotionally and perhaps physically exhausted from all of your efforts during the last week of Terri's life. I share that malady. We fought hard, but we were new at the game of trying to save a life with our keyboards, and allowed ourselves to often think with our hearts instead of our heads.

But that's behind us, and we are a larger group now and growing, we've gained some experience and contacts, we've learned a little more about how to work together and are getting better organized, and we are learning how to divide up our labors and act quickly. Let's try to avoid letting our hearts overtake us, let's use them because they are a great asset, but we have to outsmart and outwork the euthanasia crowd, and let's not forget that. We are likely to have many people like Terri that need our help, so let's move forward methodically and with determination to stay the course, together.

One last thing: We know how hateful and angry our opposition can be, but let's not fall into the trap of getting angry ourselves - let's keep our cool, be an example for others to follow, and by all means pray hard and fight hard.

Update 3: Random and Politically Incorect Thoughts also verified.

Posted by richard at April 6, 2005 09:46 PM

Let's not let this happen again! Richard verified it, Random and Politically Incorrect Thoughts verified it, and Straight Up with Sherri has also verified it. Let's get the word out and stop another horrific murder and tragedy from taking place.

You've been told and NOW YOU KNOW.


Go to this website and read their profile of Michael Richard Schiavo:


Born: April 3, 1963, Levittown PA. Parents, William and Claire Schiavo (both deceased). Michael is the youngest of five boys.

Married: November 1984 to Theresa Schindler, 20 yrs. of age. Michael Schiavo was 21 yrs. old.

Physical Characteristics: Michael Schiavo is 6’6" and weighs close to 250 lbs., compared to Terri’s 5’3" height and 115 lbs. weight.

Residence: Moved from Philadelphia, PA to St. Petersburg, FL in April of 1986. From 1995 to the present, living with his fiancée, Jodi Centonze and their two children, residing in Clearwater, FL
Early Employment: Michael Schiavo’s initial employment in Florida was the onset of employment at six different restaurants over the ensuing 2 ½ years. His length of employment at times was only for two weeks to a month.

Michael Schiavo’s attitude was a major contributor to his chronic unemployment. He had a tendency to outspend Terri’s income, and his inability to retain employment created a serious financial problem, impacting their marriage. Also, it has been alleged that Michael’s restaurant environment introduced him to drugs.

Some Background Information: Most people, particularly Terri, were easily intimidated because of Michael’s size. It has been documented that Michael had rages of anger and would use his physical stature to bully people, and as indicated in their attached personal experiences and affidavits, it was mostly women that were the subject of Michael’s episodes of anger.

In the early 1990’s, Michael Schiavo’s treating psychiatrist, Dr. Peter Kaplan, stated in a phone conversation with Terri’s father, in regards to a violent episode occurring between Michael and Terri’s younger sister Suzanne, that Michael was potentially dangerous and should a situation re occur, to call the police.

In a deposition from November 1992, that Michael admitted Dr. Kaplan prescribed Welbutron, Paneior, Elavil and Prozac medication to treat his condition.

Additionally, contrary to everything Michael admittedly learned in his CPR training, he did not turn Terri over and clear her airway the night that she collapsed. His CPR training could have re-started her heart.

So, William and Claire Schiavo are deceased and aren't around to see what their sons have become and what they have done to their family name.

Michael is the youngest of five boys. I've previously run across mention of Scott, Steve, and Brian. With Michael, that only makes 4 of their sons.

Read the whole thing. What a pity Michael's psychiatrist couldn't prevent his patient from becoming a murderer.

You've been told and NOW YOU KNOW.


You simply will not believe the chutzpah of Scott Schiavo, the brother of Michael Schiavo. I just saw Scott Schiavo on CNN and he was saying that the Schindler family (i.e. Terri's family) needed to apologize to the Schiavo family!

Also, there is this article quoting Scott:

Scott Schiavo expressed relief that his sister-in-law's ordeal was over, and anger at those who have attacked the Schiavo family.

This isn't over by a long shot, We're going to get our name right," he said. "The world is going to know who Mike was, they're going to know Mike wasn't a beast."
Oh, really? You deluded fool! Brothers Scott Schiavo, Steven Schiavo, and Brian Schiavo, you need to know that you are as guilty of murdering Terri Schindler as your brother is. You are as guilty of his adulterous relationship with Jodi Centonze as he is. You are as guilty as he is for the spawning of his illegitimate children with Ms. Centonze. Through it all you have defended the undefendable atrocities, you have excused the inexcusable abominations, you have aided and abetted every heinous despicable crime of your brother. You have applauded him and boasted and bragged in the depths of your unmitigated wickedness. You spit in the face of God, so of course you don't mind spitting upon His children.

And you have the utmost effrontery to say on national television that the Schindlers owe your detestable "family" an apology? Yeah, right. Like Sharon Tate's relations owe the Charles Manson "family" an apology.

Scott Schiavo, Steve Schiavo, Brian Schiavo, Michael Schiavo -- it must take one hell of an amoral and degenerate set of parents to have spawned and raised you three. You have demonstrated yourselves to be utterly detestable. No one of decent society or upbringing would have anything to do with any of you, except maybe to buy a piece of the rope for a souvenir were you to be publicly hanged.

Scott Schiavo, Steve Schiavo, Brian Schiavo and Michael Schiavo, GO TO HELL. And please be so kind as to take along the putrid kind of sluts that would have anything to do with you, much less shack up with you.

It is not my Christian duty to cover up your sins or to pretend that a pile of manure smells like roses. Terri's innocent blood is on your hands. The world has seen you for what you are. Michael is worse than a beast, and evidently, so is his entire repulsive "family."

The Crime and Corruption Cabal that Murdered Terri Schiavo

"Rule of Law"??? Terri's cruel and vicious torture and death at the hands of murderers was anything but an example of the "rule of law." What a ludicrous lie that was from the very beginning! Read this, the whole sordid and sickening tale of corruption of officials who should all be brought to justice. Here's a brief excerpt:

Meanwhile, if there are any key players in the ongoing Schiavo controversy who do not have a hospice board of director, right-to-die membership, or political campaign contribution conflict of interest to declare, would they please stand up?
Read the whole thing!

The sophomoric "secularists" who keep insisting that this was all the rule of law need to pull their heads out with a resounding POP. Evil breeds evil and these despicable people are getting away with more than just the torture and murder of an innocent woman. Let's see to it that they don't get away with it.

A Priest Speaks Out Whereas a Bishop Did Not.

Well, Bishop Lynch of Florida, are you paying attention to this?

To: National Desk, Legal Reporter

Contact: Jerry Horn of Priests for Life, 540-785-4733;Web:

NEW YORK, April 5 /U.S. Newswire/ -- In response to the criticism some have voiced to his statements that Terri Schiavo's death was a murder, Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement this morning:

"Yes, Murder.

"Terri Schiavo was in fact murdered by being deprived of food and water for 13 days. The reason Michael Schiavo's attorney George Felos was so upset that I said this is because he is a euthanasia advocate, and the only way to advance euthanasia is to sugar-coat it, and never call it murder. But it is. Moreover, it is inaccurate to describe Terri Schiavo's death as peaceful and gentle. I was with her for several hours the night before she died and again the next morning up until ten minutes before she died. She was in an agony unlike anything I have ever seen, and to describe it in any other way is irresponsible and dishonest
"As for Mr. Felos' plea that I speak words of compassion and reconciliation, I have indeed done so publicly over recent months. But compassion does not mean compromising the truth, and reconciliation is possible only when one repents of doing evil acts like killing. The role of a priest, moreover, is not simply to make people feel good, but to denounce injustice and proclaim truth, no matter how discomforting it may be."
/© 2005 U.S. Newswire 202-347-2770/

It is a crying shame that Bishop Lynch did not see fit to do his duty and speak with as much moral clarity as Father Pavone. If you know any self-proclaimed "Catholics" or "Christians" who supported Terri Schindler-Schiavo's murder directly through their actions or indirectly through their inaction, you can rest assured that they are "Catholic" or "Christian" in name only. After all, you could decide tomorrow to go around calling yourself a nuclear physicist, but just because you call yourself one it doesn't make it so.

Misplaced Sympathy for the Murderers of Terri Schiavo

Have some of you completely lost your minds? When I read in blog after blog the pleas and requests for prayers on behalf of Michael Schiavo, George Felos, judge George W. Greer et al., it boggles the mind! If pray for them you must, then pray that they be shown the error of their ways, pray that they be brought to repentance, pray that they be called to ask for forgiveness and seek salvation through Christ our Lord.

But all that other nonsense about "not judging" the murderers who are still stained with the blood of their victim and still smiling and boasting amid the very reek of their iniquity has got to stop. Are you trying to turn your other cheek for Terri Schindler (Schiavo)? Can you possibly think that you have been appointed to turn your cheek for her, to turn your cheek for her wronged family?

Are you even aware that praying for someone in the abyss of their wickedness when they are without the slightest hint of remorse can anger God, rather than move Him to mercy?

"As for you, do not pray for this people, and do not lift up cry or prayer for them, and do not intercede with Me; for I do not hear you." (Jeremiah 7:16).

"Therefore do not pray for this people, nor lift up a cry or prayer for them; for I will not listen when they call to Me because of their disaster." (Jeremiah 11:14).

"So the Lord said to me, “Do not pray for the welfare of this people. When they fast, I am not going to listen to their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and grain offering, I am not going to accept them. Rather I am going to make an end of them by the sword, famine and pestilence” (Jeremiah 14:11,12).

"Then the Lord said to me, “Even though Moses and Samuel were to stand before Me, My heart would not be with this people; send them away from My presence and let them go!” (Jeremiah 15:1)

For you to pray for God's mercy to be bestowed on a child molester at the very time the molester is raping a child, rather than act to STOP the rape of the child or other children in the future, is a mockery and a travesty! Have you abandoned your wits?

So many unbelievers have remarked about "Why didn't God do something to stop the murder of Terri Schiavo if He is so against it, as you Christians and Jews claim He is." I tell you truly, He did do something! He made you and me and gave us enough instruction to know that Terri's brutal murder at the hands of these thugs was wrong and to know that we should stop it. God did not fail us or Terri Schiavo. We failed God and Terri.

And yet you have the effrontery to plead for murderers who lack the grace to plead for themselves?!?! Grow up in the eye's of God and stop making excuses for and covering their sins! Your prayers would be better directed toward pleading that our country never allow such a thing to happen again as we stand by. Your prayers would be better directed toward asking for the courage and strength and wisdom to combat this evil and turn this tide. God gave us free will, thus He is not going to do all this for us. God have mercy on us who tried but failed! But may He have just retribution on the perpetrators so that through chastisement, they may even yet be saved.

The Disneyfication of Christianity - How Evil Justifies the Murder of Terri Schiavo

Disneyfied Christianity for Mass-Market Consumption!
"Murder isn't so bad! We're a secular society! Leave God out of it! She's dead already. You people need to give it up!" -- The opinion of pro-murder secularists.

I am posting this again from earlier. Evidently, some people still don't realize that Christianity is not a "philosophy." More importantly, Christianity is not a faith in which one can adhere to some of its teachings but not others. You do not get to pick and choose and build your own "mix and match" version of Christianity. There are people who claim that they share some of our Christian beliefs, but unfortunately, sharing some profits them nothing. Satan himself knows there is a God and Satan himself can quote scripture. Big deal. Sharing some is just another way of saying losing all.

"God loves everyone! God is all about unconditional love! Everything that happens is God's will!" -- [from the Book of Disneyfied Scripture, chapter 1, verse 1. Order now and get your free wall poster, your free bumpersticker and your free matching tote-bag!]

Oh, really? The very first thing you should do if you ever hear someone claiming to be a Christian and yet spouting the above type of nonsense is to run as fast as you can and as far away as you can from them.

Matthew 27:46 and Mark 15:34

"And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice saying, Eli, Eli lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"

In our Disneyfied world of used car salesmen for Christ and other "New Age" charlatans, the popular view that one is supposed to express is that God loves you just the way you are. That is a patent, baldfaced lie.

When Christ was on the cross, having taken upon himself the sins of the world, God the Father could not even look at him. Thus our Lord's words, "My God, my God, why has thou forsaken me?"

On La Shawn Barber's blog, there is a letter from one of her readers who bemoans an alleged lack of compassion for Michael Schiavo. "But he's God's child too!" is the import of what that letter writer wails.

While it may pain some to hear it, nevertheless, the truth must be spoken:

God cannot love Michael Schiavo while he unrepentantly wallows in the sins that he is in the process of committing. The rapist in the act of committing rape, the murderer in the act of committing murder will cry in vain to God, if they cry to Him at all.

One is not Christian if one condones evil, sympathizes with evil, or enables evil. God cannot bear to look at such unrepentant sin in the making. God's love is very much conditional. If He loved you just the way you are, there would have been no need for our Savior's sacrifice on the cross. If everyone were equally loved no matter what, there would be no need for a Redeemer and there would be no hell.

If you want prayers and compassion for Michael Schiavo et al., you should be praying that God will move their hearts from their current course of defiant evil and open their minds, hearts and souls to the grace of salvation which can only be attained through Christ our Lord.

There can be no love or forgiveness from God while one is in the very throes of stubborn, blind, unrepentant sin.

I implore all those, whom the Holy Spirit may move to do so, to reject the Disneyfication of Christianity, to reject the "happy endings for one and all" nonsense that makes a mockery of Jesus Christ's sacrifice on the cross.

If one must pray for Michael Schiavo, let it be a prayer that he and those like him will turn from a course that leads inevitably to death and damnation.

However, in the meantime, pray most fervently that the next Terri Schindler (Schiavo) may be spared from a cruel and inhumane death at the hands of monsters, aided and abetted by misguided and misinformed pseudo-Christians who base their beliefs on whatever passing whim they feel from moment to moment, rather than on the Word of God.

John 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."

Christ is God and the infallible Word of God. His teachings are not compatible with mollycoddling sinners in the very act of committing their sin.

Catholic Teaching on Terri Schiavo's Murder Is NOT "Nuanced."

There are some incredibly misguided and ill-catechized individuals on the internet who are claiming that the Catholic Church's teaching on "euthanasia" (i.e. murder) is "nuanced."

That is utter nonsense. Even worse, it's a lie. The truth is that Satan is nuanced and he himself can quote and twist scripture and God's own words into the most "nuanced" amount of pernicious false doctrine that you could ever fear to see or hear. Don't forget Satan's tempation of Christ during Christ's 40 days in the wilderness. Satan is supposedly THE most beautiful of God's angels, capable of deceiving the nations with the most attractive sounding lies. Christ's teachings however are clear. Christ our Savior did not make things nuanced. He spoke plainly to plain people so that they would not be confused or left in the dark. If you are feeling confused at Christ's teaching, the fault lies not in the teacher but in the student.

When the Vatican and even the pope clearly state that withholding food and water is ALWAYS contrary to church doctrine, then one can no longer have the slightest room for doubt or the faintest bit of room for nuance. Food and water are NEVER extraordinary means of saving a life. They are indeed basic requirements.

As for degrees of culpability based on whether one is ignorant or not, one can no longer plead ignorance when the Vatican and the Pope have already made a pronouncement. Then there is no longer the possibility of ignorance other than wilful, deliberate, malicious ignorance. If one stubbornly insists on remaining in ignorance in spite of clear teaching, that constitutes mortal sin.

Do not be deceived or misled by these liberal so-called Catholics or Christians. Christian teaching regarding murder, and especially the murder of Terri Schindler-Schiavo, leaves no room whatsoever for debate. The only ones who would claim that there is room for debate and nuance are the wolves in sheep's clothing about whom Christ repeatedly warned us. They are the lawyers, scribes and Pharisees against whom Christ and his followers had to constantly and vigilantly fight. They strain at a gnat and swallow a camel. They scour the earth for converts and when they have found them, they make them twice as fit for hell as those Pharisees themselves are.

Do not listen to them, do not dispute or debate with them. Do not cast pearls before those swine. Terri Schindler-Schaivo's blood is upon them. How can they escape the fires of hell? Through repentance, submission and the grace of God alone, through the blood shed by Christ our Lord. So far, these nominal "Catholics" have shown no indication of exhibiting any of the above.

For the last time, there is NO nuance to Christian teaching on this matter. Terri Schindler-Schiavo was murdered and those who seek to excuse, to mollify, or to obfuscate that truth are complicit in that murder. We cannot allow such a thing to happen again. We do not have the luxury of pleading ignorance. We know better.

LIBERTARIAN NEVERMORE - What I Have Learned from Terri Schiavo's Murder

I have been an active and contributing member of the Libertarian party for longer than most of you reading this have been alive, but that ends effective immediately.

I can no longer work for or contribute to a party that prides itself on having murdered Terri Schindler-Schiavo and pats itself on the back that it struck a "blow for privacy." Yes, you all struck a blow alright, but it certainly wasn't for privacy.

The Glenn Reynolds types of the world can all go piss up a wet rope. It will be an ice cold day in hell before I promote or espouse the Libertarian party ever again.

You all truly make me want to vomit. I hope this blow that you struck for so-called "privacy" comes back to haunt each and every one of you.

The ideals of liberty for which I have worked so long and for which I mistakenly and grievously thought the Libertarian party stood do not include depriving the disabled of their right to life. The ideals of liberty in which I believe do not include letting husbands get away with murder. The ideals of liberty that I cherish would never allow an adulterous man who has spawned bastards to kill his legal wife in order to make way for his adultress waiting in the wings. You Libertarians may call your actions liberty, but I call them repulsive. Liberty without a moral compass or a shred of consideration for others is not Libertarian, it is simply libertinism in the manner of the Marquis de Sade.

Ignorant or just plain stupid people who have misread Rabelais often mistranslate his famous line from Gargantua, "Fay Ce Que Vouldras" as "Do What Thou Wilt." That was not Rabelais' intent, but apparently it is the intent of the debased and degraded Libertarian party and those who consider themselves Libertarians. It appears that their motto now is to do whatever they wish, no matter how heinous, and screw the rest of the world. I cannot support or be associated with such vicious vermin, much less their shyster lawyers or their lawyerly-minded little saps. Your liberties end where the other person's nose begins and you have all taken leave of your senses and forgotten that. Rabelais' words (if you knew anything at all!) should NOT be translated as "Do What Thou Wilt" but rather "Thy Will Be Done," as in the Lord's Prayer. That's what Rabelais meant. But you have twisted it from doing the Lord's will to doing your own will without the slightest shred of self-restraint.

A party that thinks that abortion is a "private matter" has now also gone further and called the murder of a helpless patient a "private matter." But the Libertarian party which I strove to build was one in which the rights of liberty would be extended even to the unborn and the disabled.

No, I disavow and renounce all ties with the Libertarian party and any and all who claim to be Libertarian or Libertarian-leaning. I'm thoroughly ashamed of and disgusted by all of you. Murder is not a liberty. Judicial fiats that have the force of tyranny are not liberty. Your "rights" to swing your fist against my face are not liberty and they are not "rights."

I can't think of a hell deep enough for you all to fry in, but I don't have to think of one. God has that covered.

I'll be unregistered or register as an Independent. All the energy that I have expended on the Libertarian party and Libertarian ideals will now be directed against you.

Some half-wits on the internet have actually had the nerve to ask why we who defended Terri's right to life would get "upset" over a "simple disagreement." Excuse me, but when your position is that murder of innocent people who have been charged with no crime is A-ok, then that is no longer a "disagreement."

If you had a 99.9999 percent majority in favor of murdering Terri and you had every legislator and judge in this land handing down laws and judicial decrees that said it was ok to murder Terri, you would still be wrong. No, I will NOT agree to disagree with you. No, we will not be friends or on friendly terms considering other areas on which we may agree. If you are pro-murder, pro-abortion, pro-euthanasia, then there is no other thing that we could share in common that could possibly make up for your murderous mindlessness on the above issues. Your stance has the moral equivalency of being pro-child molesting. No, we cannot agree to disagree. You are wrong. Deadly wrong. You are a walking, talking disease, a blight on humanity, a cancer upon the face of the earth.

My forefathers fought to make this a great nation. They would be sickened and appalled by what you now have the gall to call liberty. Your "liberty" carries no responsibility, accountability, or morality with it. In short, your "liberty" is conceived and designed so as to infringe on the liberty of others while simultaneously giving yourself free rein to trample unfettered whenever you wish on whomever you wish.

You are all so utterly damned, on earth as it is in heaven.

That goes for you, Michele Catalano. It curdles my blood to think that you are raising empty-headed little bimbos just like yourself. Revolting.

Ditto for you, Glenn Reynolds. You are a classic example of why Christ said, "Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered." And that was just one of the nicer things that he had to say about lawyers. So don't give me any crap about Christians "not being allowed to judge." The lot of you don't even know what the hell you're babbling about when you say that. You wouldn't know Christianity if it walked up and bit you right smack-kadab on the ass.

The same goes for all the rest of you so-called Libertarians, Republicans, or conservatives who supported Terri's murder. (The same goes for the Dumbocrats too, obviously, it's just that I've become so used to their being repugnant and reprehensible. I expect such behavior from them!But for you others, there is no excuse for you.) Your souls are more revolting than the picture of Dorian Gray. In the Bible, in I John 5:16 it says that I don't even have to pray for the likes of you.

I might say a Picard's prayer for you (although you all are probably too stupid to know what that is). No, I'll just pray that God render unto you the same mercy that you showed to Terri Schindler-Schiavo, which is to say N-O-N-E.

Life Is Precious and God Alone Is Its Author

As we mourn the passing of Pope John Paul II, let us remember his teachings about the sanctity of life. Let us remember his love for the unborn, the disabled, the sick, the lowly, those who have no voice.

John Paul II was no stranger to suffering. Even through his afflictions, he respected life and God as the creator and author of life. He taught unceasingly that God was the only one who can create life and it is not in the authority of mankind to kill the innocent or the helpless.

It has been a long week of mourning and sorrow. Let us remember John Paul II's life and that life is precious and must be nurtured, respected, honored and cherished.

You've been told and NOW YOU KNOW.



'The words Christ uttered are repeated by the Church. And with the Church, they are repeated by the Pope. I have done so since the first homily I gave in St. Peter's Square: "Be not afraid!" These are not words said into a void. They are profoundly rooted in the Gospel. They are simply the words of Christ Himself.'

A: "Blackcrack" (or some such nonsensical appellation) of a blog calling itself The A**Holecard (No, I'm not going to link to it. Those in search of excrement are capable of finding it without my help.)

Well, at least they got the "hole" part of the blog's name right.

Christ said one cannot get figs from thistles. In modern colloquial parlance, that would be stated "GIGO" or "Garbage In, Garbage Out."

As long as we continue to tolerate trash and allow it to spawn and raise trash, the result will invariably be mutants such as "Blackcrack" or "Blackhole" or "Jackass" or whatever it is calling itself.

Slippery Slope???!

Abortion Advocates Cheer Terri Schiavo Loss in Florida Senate

WASHINGTON, March 31, 2005 ( - On Thursday, March 24, the director of public affairs for Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida sent an e- mail to advocates for the abortion operation telling them how to "express your appreciation" to Florida Republican senators who split with the GOP leadership by voting against a bill intended to save Terri Schiavo. The message listed the names and contact information for the six senators.

"Apparently Planned Parenthood isn't content with killing 244,628 innocent children in the last year through abortion. Now the harmful organization is telling its advocates how to thank elected officials for voting against a measure aimed at saving the life of Terri Schiavo," said David Bereit, national director of American Life League's STOPP International.

In a Wednesday, March 30, phone conversation with Bereit, the Planned Parenthood executive admitted to sending the e-mail and said, "We just felt that it was pretty courageous of them (the six senators) to do what they did, and it's always a good idea to thank legislators when they do something you like."

[Emphasis mine.]

Planned Parenthood?!?! Excuse me, but that should actually be, "Unplanned Pregnancy NON-Parenthood" or "Unplanned Pregnancy Baby Killers" or "Wanton Sex Without Consequences" (except of course to the unborn baby. To the baby the consequences are FATAL and irreversible.) These dregs, lees and dross of society are ecstatic about the murder of a helpless woman. They're so happy in fact that they admit they are thanking legislators for the murder.

Folks, we are not on the verge of a slippery slope. Will you all please stop saying that we are on the verge? We have already slid all the way down that slope to rock bottom. Human life has been decreed to have no value whatsoever and now our very lives are at the mercy of the arbitrary whims of judicial (but not judicious!) decree.

There is no slope down which we will slide further. There is just this gutter or sewer here at the bottom where we now float among the offal of inhumane humanity and mindless murderers without remorse.

Mel Gibson on the Truant Bush Brothers & Terri Schiavo

Oh, there was nothing else that George W. Bush or his brother, Jeb Bush, could do! They did everything possible! It was out of their hands!


The following is what Mel Gibson had to say about it on an interview with Sean Hannity and he is absolutely right:

"I'm appalled and stunned that we've gotten to this..I just sit here watching this whole scenario play out in front of me with my mouth hanging wide open, that our country has come to this. I think it's really a dark, black day.

"What happened to just being a human being, you know? It's nothing more than state-sanctioned murder. All the big guys, they all have their hands tied up by some tinhorn judge down there. Come on, when they want to whip a judge, they got no problem doing that. Look what they did to [Ten Commandments proponent Roy Moore] in a heartbeat. So they can do it if they want. They just don't want to."

[Emphasis mine.]

They obviously didn't want to stop the cold-blooded murder of Terri Schiavo. As a conservative and a Christian, I can no longer support these derelict men.
