Schiavo Protesters

Filed under: Random Stuff — Bob Gifford @ 11:30 am

I had vowed not to post about Terry Schiavo again after my previous rant, but via Carlos at Jesus Politics, a poignant (but profane) Kos diary expressing anger at hardships being imposed on the other hospice patients, the neighborhood, and now a local school by the protesters:

Despite being asked by the family to leave, despite the harassment of the hospice and its employees, we now have a report that 600 students, an entire school will be relocating tomorrow indefinitely because of their threats of violence.

It is not for me to judge the protesters’ hearts or motives, but I can’t help but think of this verse from Galatians:

By contrast, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against such things.

And this time, I promise no more posts about Schiavo.


  1. That’s not a post about Schiavo. That’s a post about the wingnut protesters. Fair game in my book.
