September 19, 2003 (www.catholiccitizens.org) – A Florida woman-s life will end when her feeding tube is removed on October 15 by order of Florida Circuit Judge George Greer. The -mercy killing- of Terri Schindler-Schiavo has drawn national attention, yet few Americans appreciate the fact that even Adolph Hitler couldn-t overcome the public outcry over his euthanasia programs, and was forced to rescind them. Ironically, the outcry in Germany was prompted by a Roman Catholic bishop, which contrasts remarkably with the tepid response to Mrs. Schiavo-s fate exhibited by the bishops in Florida and the United States.
In the end, Terri Schindler Schiavo may be the lucky one. While she goes on to her eternal reward, nervous Christians are left to fend for themselves in a hostile, increasingly pagan culture, without moral support from their religious -leaders,- and facing imprisonment or extermination from judges who have transcended Nazism and moved into realm of the Satanic. It takes a lot of nerve for a people capable of such depravity and moral cowardice to ask God to bless America. His love may be infinite, but His patience has got to be wearing very, very thin.
