Let God Sort 'Em Out -- Or Maybe ONLY Kill Good People

Congress intervenes in Schiavo case:
Apparently, Congressmen will subpoena Terri to force her to be kept on life-support.

Meanwhile, the Florida Senate again rejected a bill that would have prevented tubes from being removed from people unless they had left clear instructions on end-of-life care. A novel bit of moral theology came from one of the opposing Florida senators:

"Sen. Nancy Argenziano, a Dunnellon Republican who voted against the Senate measure on Thursday, wiped away tears as she explained her position. She said she had received threatening phone calls and been called 'some very nasty names.'
'Please respect my fundamental belief, it is a true belief,' she said, pausing as she cried. 'I don't want to stop anyone from getting to heaven.'
Argenziano and other senators said they were convinced from the court testimony that Schiavo would not have wanted to be kept alive by artificial means.
'just ask people to understand there is another point of view,' she said. 'I believe keeping someone from getting to heaven is the wrong thing to do.'"

Yes, starving someone to death so they can go to heaven is another point of view, as is a belief that Hale-Bopp is coming to bring us to a higher state, once we "dump the containers" and off ourselves.
