On hatred

A US judge has refused to order doctors to resume feeding a severely brain-damaged woman, Terri Schiavo. Judge James Whittemore said the woman's parents had not proven a "substantial likelihood of success" if the case went back to court. (from the BBC)

I'm left, this morning, numb and uncertain what to do next. I cannot believe that the immense outpouring of support for the Schindlers in this country has had no effect whatsoever. The left screams that we have turned this into a political issue, when in fact it is they who have done that. It doesn't matter to them that they are killing an innocent woman. It doesn't matter that there are people more than willing to care for this woman.

It only matters that they score one on George W. Bush.

It's this attitude that turned me away from the middle of the road. It's this hatred for other human beings that opened my own eyes. There is a culture of death in this country, in this world, and it's growing, it's spreading, like a cancer. When you listen to what the nay-voters said in Sunday's late-night vote, you get chills down your spine--it's nothing more nor less than the insane rantings of a group of lunatics. Lunatics who have such a desire for power at any cost that they are willing to sacrifice an innocent woman. The bloodlust and hatred come off of these people in waves of black venom.

Ward Churchill and those of his ilk claim that Bush is responsible for the deaths of millions of Iraqis. That America deserved what it got on 9-11. They mention only Iraqi babies, of course, while blithely voting for every pro-abortion candidate they can find. Not one word out of them on the legalized murder of newborns in the Netherlands. Not one word out of them on the killing of Theresa Marie Schindler (as of this morning, I will do my level best not to use the name Schiavo when referring to her). They call the conservatives "Nazis" and "little Eichmanns," with no hint whatsoever of irony.

This is Holy Week in the Catholic Church. In Terri's Church. The Church that cannot, by law, give her comfort as she dies. That cannot give her Last Rites. It is the week where the Catholic Church focuses on the Passion of Christ, on His death and resurrection. On Good Friday, traditionally, Catholics leave their radios and televisions off for three hours in honor of Christ's death. It's possible that Terri Schindler will die on Good Friday, or on Easter Sunday. Possible, and fitting...
