Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2


Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

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.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

Florida bill on track to be passed in time

But of course the lawyer for Michael Schiavo has resorted to spluttering outrage at such arrogance on the part of lawmakers and those dreadful relgious fanatics -- he says, "The proposed legislation should be exposed for what it is, an attempt by opponents of medical freedom of choice to prevent Floridians from declining or ending artificial feeding. The fate of more than Mrs. Schiavo hangs in the balance."

Opponents of "medical freedom of choice" are trying to prevent others from being killed slowly by starvation? Damn straight we are.

I wonder how far Mr. Felos would get if he would have phrased his statement like this: "The proposed legislation should be exposed for what it is, an attempt by opponents of medical freedom of choice [for animals] to prevent Floridians from declining or ending artificial feeding of [dogs, owls, dolphins, squirrels, etc]."

Makes you wonder - where are the animal rights activists, the anti-death penalty activists, and women's rights groups now?

Bills that may save Schiavo on track as clock ticks
