the seamless garment

If Terri Schiavo were sitting on death row for killing three people while knocking over a liquor store, the Bishops of Florida would be fervently pleading for her life now.
He has a point.

Condemned murderers are also permitted to have the Last Rites of the Church before their execution -- something neither the State nor the Church seems willing or able to make happen for Terri. God, who sees hearts, knows all of this, and I firmly believe Terri will inherit the Crown of Life for her sufferings -- but Catholics should be up in arms regarding the refusal of Holy Communion as she is dying. It is an absolute outrage, not to mention a denial of her religious rights.

If Terri Schiavo were sitting on death row for killing three people while knocking over a liquor store, the liberal media would be all over the story and offering anyone opposed to the execution TV time. And, as we all know, our bishops have no fear of God, but are scared to death of the media. So, while an execution would offer the important chance for those not-so-lovable losers to look credible on an issue--any issue--more importantly they would have the chance to offer incense to their gods.
