    can we kill the school lunch programs? can we tell the Dims, when they launch into the accusations of Republicans starving the old, the poor, and the children, to effectively shove it? can we kill all of the aid shipped to starving nations? can we tell Sally Struthers to quit being such a right-wing extremist for denying Third Worlders their state of bliss? can we finally de-canonize the homeless? can Michael Moore finally bathe, and see his feet?
  • The Wages of Moral Relativism - (the legacy of Terri Schaivo's death)

    America is now a nation ruled by the amoral and fallible will of men. They are called lawyers. The warning has been coming for decades. The current case involving the litigated and legally mandated death sentence of Terri Schiavo has now confirmed our current fate. This should be no surprise. For at least fifty years we have been indoctrinated with the specious argument that a traditional, rational and common moral code of conduct is bourgeois and unsophisticated. This journey of cultural madness has culminated in massive societal confusion regarding whether right and wrong behavior even exists. This is unless a...

    On March 31, 2005, thirty years after feminism’s hey-day in the 1970s, a woman died from dehydration, on the orders of her adulterous husband, who was supported by the courts in his quest to end his wife’s life. On February 25, 1990, Theresa Schindler Schiavo collapsed in her home and suffered significant brain damage. In 1992, Mrs. Schiavo’s husband Michael was awarded a $1,050,000 malpractice settlement, of which $300,000 was allocated for Mr. Schiavo’s loss of consortium and $750,000 for Mrs. Schiavo’s rehabilitative care. Mr. Schiavo subsequently refused to allow rehabilitative care for his wife. There are other reasons to...

    Terri Schiavo's parents turned her death into a three-ring circus. We don't question their love for their daughter and their grief at her passing, but one has to wonder why they allowed everyone from Randall Terry to Tom DeLay to Jesse Jackson to intrude into their family's tragedy. Robert and Mary Schindler did not protest as fringe right-to-life groups exploited their daughter's image. They generated a sad, made-for-cable-TV spectacle and fed it with edited video footage from their daughter's hospice bed and sinister accusations about Michael Schiavo. In the last few days, the Schindlers also agreed to allow some of...

    Congressional and state lawmakers offered their condolences Thursday to the family of Terri Schiavo (search) and said the severely brain-damaged woman's death left many emotional issues to be dealt with. "Today, millions of Americans are saddened by the death of Terri Schiavo," President Bush said just before commenting on a weapons of mass destruction report issued by a blue-ribbon commission on Thursday. Saying Schiavo's parents, Bob and Mary Schindler (search), displayed "grace and dignity" throughout the long, emotional ordeal, Bush urged those grieving to "continue to work to build a culture of life where all Americans are welcomed and valued...
  • Catholic Priest: Terri Schiavo Responsive Til Death, Prayed With Family

    Pinellas Park, FL ( -- A leading Catholic priest who visited Terri Schiavo on two separate occasions in the hours before her death says Terri was in a weakened medical condition from 13 days of starvation but was responsive until her death. The disabled woman even prayed with her family. "Last night, I spent about two hours with her until past midnight, together with Bobby Schindler and Suzanne, and then again this morning for about an hour and a half, and then right up until about ten minutes before she died," Father Frank Pavone said. Pavone, the director of Priests...
  • Jeb Bush won't feel impact from Schiavo

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - It seemed like Jeb Bush was in a no-win situation by taking up the cause of trying to keep Terri Schiavo alive. He was going against polls that showed two out of three people thought government shouldn't get involved. Then when courts stopped him from stepping in, some of his conservative Christian base criticized him for not doing more. But many people agree the Schiavo case was not a political issue for Bush and that the governor will not be hurt by it - especially since he doesn't have plans to run for office again any time...

    Bible, John 12
    My mother felt compelled, a calling, to read about Palm Sunday in the Bible this morning. She found something that applies directly to today: They wanted to KILL A MAN WHO ROSE FROM THE DEAD right around Palm Sunday! What day is this? Palm Sunday! The desire to kill Lazarus is here: John 12 [9] Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead. [10] But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also...
