That's interference.com for ya Indra! Any thread dealing with religion would eventually crumble into a theological slugfest (geez, I love that term!). Just look at my first "Bono's view on eastern religion" thread...

Anyway, back to the topic...

My respest for John Danforth has grown after reading that article, and it pretty much articulates what I think about current events and Christianity in general.

Some people here may already know about my struggle with faith, but I would love to check out the church Danforth goes to.

She was still alive, which means that Michael Schiavo was an adulterer. It's as simple as that. All your rationalization doesn't change that.

firstly, whether or not he is an adulterer has NOTHING to do with the legal or medical facts of the case.

secondly, it's obvious that, in your world, there's no such thing as nuance, complication, and shades of gray.

Terri was not alive in any meaningful sense. her organs functioned, her brain did not. she was in (let's say it again) A PERSISTANT VEGETATIVE STATE. as in, SHE WAS A VEGETABLE. she was no more alive than the trees in the woods or the grass on your lawn.

if you'd like to marry a cauliflower, you're more than welcome.

(just so long as it's not a gay cauliflower).

No thanks, but I appreciate the offer.

Maybe I'll marry a peach - A Georgia Peach.

okay, i really am done here.

i am really surprised at how strong my reaction is to this particular case.

i don't know what else i can add.

(of course, i'll do my best to refrain ... but i can fly off the handle with the best of them)

As can I, often to my own dismay.
