The good Samaritan goes to jail columnist Terence Jeffrey has an article comparing the Good Samaritan to the Terri Schiavo situation -
- - - Quote - - -

The Gospel only says the Samaritan was the traveler's good neighbor and that Jesus told the Samaritan's story to teach a so-called "expert in the law" just what it means to be a good neighbor.

Apparently, the wounded traveler's precise clinical condition and prognosis were not important factors in determining what simple human decency demanded of the traveler's neighbors.

Now who are Terri Schiavo's good neighbors?

prying1 sez:
Please don't think that when Terri dies the story will end. Many believe the judges now consider themselves to be above Congress and the President. The branches are supposed to be co-equal and our government is designed to reign in any branch that gets out of control. Clearly the Judicial Branch now feels they can demand murder with impunity and no control by the other branches of the government. Terri's clinging to life has opened the eyes of many from the left who do not want to be associated with the party of death.
