Accuse someone of being a wife-beater for seven years without any real evidence to support said accusation, and they might not want to have you around for some odd reason.
There you go.....being logical!
Whether his decision was right or wrong, he said/she said, whether their accusations were truth or untruth ...it has no real bearing on the matter at hand (the burial). The woman is dead. However, it is MHO, that Michael will be the most single HATED man in this country, ongoing, passed on to his children, dogged by his decisions, hated beyond belief by extremists, hounded by people who call themselves allies and enemies, detested by every member of Terri's family and every friend she ever had, shunned by members of society, it will affect his very livelihood, if he doesn't allow Terri's parents to know where they daughter is buried. It's bad enough he didn't allow them to be there when she died. It does not matter WHAT HAPPENED BETWEEN THEM. He will be HATED and SHUNNED for this. It won't matter what the parents did or do. This will eclipse it. And he will be detested. And not just by Christians. And not just by mothers. And not just by conservatives. And not just by republicans. But by job interviewers, real estate agents, neighbors, etc. If he had any sense, he'd change his mind. Because we all know, Terri certainly didn't want THIS.
How true, Poohbah.
He's much worse than a wife-beater. He's a murderer.
Yeah, but I always heard that Michael was all about upholding Terri's wishes.
Do you think she told him in some off-handed remark 15 years ago she wouldn't want her parents at her funeral?
I'm sorry, that's ridiculous. It's the burial of their child. It's purely vindictive and cruel and serves absolutely no purpose to keep them away. It's just selfish and mean. Terri doesn't belong to him. They were truly married for 5 years for goodness sakes. He's been with another woman for a decade-plus. She was much closer to her family than this man she spent five years with.
Not only will they not be allowed to attend the burial OF THEIR OWN CHILD (and sister, and parishioner in the case of her priest), but she will be buried in a secret location so they won't even know what grave to visit? That's insane.
I repeat, Terri doesn't belong to him. He moved on and made another family a long time ago. I know you're a Schiavo-supporter. But it's actions like these that make it so easy to believe that Michael did not starve her because he had her best interests at heart. But because she belonged to him, and he could do what he pleased.
