Unjust Trials!

There are people who believe that Congress recently was overstepping their bounds and Terri was, in absentia, forced to endure an illegal legal process.

There are people who believe that when Judge Whittemoore did not call for the feeding tube to be replaced in Terri as desired by Congress she was forced to endure the decision of an unjust judge.

History shows us that when Jesus went to trial He was forced to endure 6 illegal trials. The Jewish trial and the Roman trial of three phases each. The Jewish trial began when Jesus was taken to Annas. Annas sent Him to Caiaphas and the Sanhedrin in the middle of the night. The third phase took place before Caiaphas and the Sanhedrin just after dawn in an attempt to legitimize their evil. After the religious leaders were done with Christ, they sent Him to the Roman governor Pontius Pilate. After Pilate questioned Him, he sent Him to Herod Antipas, who ruled over Galilee. Herod sent Him back to Pilate, who in turn condemned Him to death. Those were the three phases of the Roman trial. Both the Jews and Romans violated rules of justice, truth, equity, and fairness, committing horrendous crimes against an innocent man.

This comparison is meant to show that Jesus endured much that we will never really understand. As did Terri Schiavo... Besides the trials Jesus had one of his followers, Judas, betray him with a kiss. Has anyone ever betrayed the trust you had placed in them? - He had one of his best friends, Peter, deny him three times. How many times have we had friends deny us in time of need? - The other 10 disciples ran and hid when they could have appeared in court and perhaps stopped the trials with their testimony. - Ever need friends to help and they are not there?

Through it all Jesus kept his eyes on the prize which was 'fulfilling His Fathers will'. This was accomplished on the cross when he said, "It is finished." and He gave up his spirit. A spear punctured his heart to prove he was dead. Where He spent the next three days is debated among theologians but this much we do know. He returned to His body! He rose from the dead and HE IS ALIVE TODAY! He conquered death!

How can I say this with such certainty? Because I have met him. It was a day when I was seeking the truth about his resurrection that I said to Him, "Jesus, I Need You now! Please come into my heart." AND HE DID! It was an experience no man can take from me and nothing on this planet can make me doubt. At that instant I felt cleansed of sin and was made new inside. A heart of stone was removed and I was given a heart of flesh. It was like I was set on a road going a different direction from the one I had been traveling and instead of heading into the darkness I was suddenly aiming towards the light.

I was Born Again.

Since that time - Feb 1970 - He has never left me. I have not been perfect and know I never will be. I also know that when I get caught up in sin (disobedience to God) He will forgive me and help me get my feet back on the path He has set before me. I do not claim to be God's spokesman on planet Earth and all knowing of God's will for all men. I will claim to know the truth on a personal level and declare to all that read this, You can too! Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."

Want proof of this? Ask him! HE IS STILL ALIVE!

More on the trials of Jesus here

Federal Interference into State Business.

Our court system is not perfect and that is why there are checks and balances. (see Dred-Scott decision Each judge DOES bring into court his prejudices and bias. Terri's PARENTS brought to the Congress evidence that Michael Schiavo has been abusing Terri by various methods and that his self interest was trumping Terri's care. Also evidence was presented that Terri is not in a vegetative state but is indeed capable of feeling pain. Starvation is not a method of dealing with people in her condition. Congress listened to the grievances and acted accordingly by asking the state of Florida judicial system for a NEW trial on the chance that allegations against Michael, Judge Greer and the court (Greer) appointed attending Physician were true and Terri was indeed having her civil rights violated. I think it is wonderful that we live in a country where the leader of that country will act to defend the rights of even the least of it's citizens.

According to the news reports and biased polling the majority of this country do not want the feds 'interfering'. If that is true then these elected officials of both parties have placed their jobs on the line to defend one helpless woman. I say they did the right thing! -

Hugh Hewitt has written a piece supporting my feelings. Thanks Hugh -

Reply to Comments on Previous Post

On one of my posts concerning Terri Schiavo Public Theologian commented that 19 judges have heard the Terri Schiavo case and all found in favor of the husband, Michael Schiavo. I wrote to a trusted friend concerning this but have not received a return email as of yet. I did however hear the answer on Hugh Hewitts radio show today. It seems that all of these judges have been looking at the same material that the Left Wing Radical Judge Greer gave them. They have not been looking at ANY new evidence. Public Theologian also commented that the doctors are court appointed. The court appointed doctors are suspect since the pro-death court that appointed them is the same one that demanded the feeding tube be removed from Terri last Friday. Conspiracy theory stuff? Perhaps so but a woman's life is at stake. If I must wear a foil hat to write this so be it. I will do so in favor of life. I refuse to join the pro-death squad and sit in despair over her quality of life.
Why the rush to kill this woman?

Ever hear the words follow the money trail?

Today I heard one of the nurses that took care of Terri for 1-1/2 years say that she and others heard Michael Sciavo say that when his wife dies he would be rich. He would come to the hospice and get upset if any therapy was being given to Terri. He was very anxious for the "bitch" to die. - (Nurses testimony of Michael's word, not mine) - She (the nurse) told of interaction with Terri (she laughs, feels pain and says a few words in response to questions) and no matter what Public Theologian says I will not be convinced that Terri is in a vegetative state until she gets a new trial with cameras rolling. Should testimony/evidence like this be entered into the equation? It counts for nothing on the radio but this woman and others (including a neurologist/Nobel prize nominee who spent 10 hours with Terri) will testify under oath if given a chance.

Congress ordered for a new trial to allow new evidence. Judge Pilate Whittemore was chosen (by computer?) to follow the orders of Congress. Instead he chooses to duck his head and slide out of the job. Perhaps so he would not upset his golf buddies, that is, other judges in on the caper.
(Question? Is it against the law for citizens to spit on the ground in front of a judge when he leave the courthouse?)

Then there is the sad case of a pastor in Florida who claims to know Terri is brain dead. He comes out with the left wing talking points and refuses to look at any questions put before him. For some reason he and others like him prefer to have Terri killed in a fashion that not even captured terrorists are treated. Which is more pitiable? Terri who cannot get before an honest judge? Or a flock of sheep in Florida whose pastor refuses to search for a judge and justice for Terri?

Disgusted With Courts etc? - Here are People that Care

Thanks again Dean's Journal for the link - Straight Up with Sherri has a post with comments on Hannity's show. It is about one nurse who was/might be fired for speaking up on Terri Schiavo's treatment. Quite a show today. Hope some of the pro-death liberals figure out the light is shining on their lies! The darkness will not hide them any more! It is up to the point where if Terri does die she will become a martyr for the anti euthanasia side. Not that we want a martyr. I'm sure we would prefer Terri alive instead.

Dean's Journal Gives list of Email Addresses.

A list of Floridian Elected officials emails. All set up nice and neat. - Copy and paste into your email message (be short, single point, nice but firm) might mention tourist dollars.

Thanks to Dean's Journal - he has Phone numbers and street addresses at his site. - Please visit him and leave him some comments/thanks after you send an email to these folks. - If you have more than one email box use it. -,,,,,,,,,,

Judge Pilate Scrubs Hands

MSNBC has Text of Schiavo Court Ruling - Judge James D. Whittemore has decided to wash his hands of the responsibility of allowing a dying woman a drink of water. Hope the people of Florida remember this day. - Mixed in the legalese is this (Italics mine):

The purpose of a temporary restraining order, like a preliminary injunction, is to protect against irreparable injury and preserve the status quo until the district court renders a meaningful decision on the merits. Canal Auth. of State of Florida v. Callaway, 489 F.2d 567, 572 (5th Cir. 1974). A district court may grant a preliminary injunction only if the moving party shows that:

(1) it has a substantial likelihood of success on the merits;
Judge Whitmore the gypsy seer knows what the next court day will bring?
(2) irreparable injury will be suffered unless the injunction issues;
You go without water for 4 days and see how you feel.
(3) the threatened injury to the movant outweighs whatever damage the proposed injunction may cause the opposing party;
I guess death is not threatening unless the judge means threatened injury to Michael Schiavo...
(4) if issued, the injunction would not be adverse to the public interest.
So it would be adverse to the public interest if Terri Schiavo lives?

Prying1 sez:
What really disgusts me about this judge is his going into hiding for so long to pretend to be deliberating. He held up the Schiavo's going to the next step for what? So Terri could suffer a bit more? So he could sit behind the curtains and build up suspense as Houdini would do?
This judge needs to be shown the light. That is the light outside the court building. I'm certain all that was said and done was above board and legitimate. It certainly does follow the letter of the law but leaves the spirit in the gutter!

Bush Signs Bill in Favor of Terri Schiavo

House representatives sent the bill to Bush at 12:30 AM Monday Morning - Vote was 203-58 - quote from World Net Daily - "But Rep. Jim Davis, D-Fla., said the congressional action was "a clear threat to our democracy." Congress, he said, was ignoring the constitutional separation of power and "is on the verge of telling states, courts, judges and juries that their opinions, deliberations and decisions do not matter.""
end quote -
prying1 sez:
Excuse me Jimmy but if I remember right for years the courts have been taking initiatives the PEOPLE vote for and throwing them back in our faces. - Separation of power? Your Job is to do what the people demand of you and this time the people are demanding you NOT dehydrate and starve a woman!

JB Williams once again tells it like it is. Where are these people that demand freedom for fish and want chickens to be treated humanely? Where are the women's Libbers? Where are the Democrats? Demanding dehydration and starvation! That is where gobs of them are. The rest that do care about life better take note. Names will be noted on this one.

I can’t believe how quiet all these compassionate so-called activists are when it comes to something really worth fighting for. I can’t wait until the next time I see one crawl out from under their rock in defense of hogwash after this….They better lay low for a long time…
