Schiavo Strikes BackDecember 07, 2005
It looks like Michael Schiavo, the husband of the late Terri Schiavo, is planning to enter politics to defeat "the Bible-thumping politicians who used his comatose wife as a football." Salon.com News | Michael Schiavo joins the fray
Now I know the case is old and you may not want to hear about it anymore, but I think that the politicians have this coming. Politicians claiming to be Christians put Michael through hell. Without any evidence whatsoever (not that that usually stops people), many Christian leaders started accusing Schiavo’s husband of having beat or hurt her to cause her condition. That’s a classic—if you disagree with someone’s position, call them a wife-beater and a murderer (who cares if it isn’t true—we don’t care about the truth as Christians, just winning).
Michael is not a Christian and I believe now he will probably never be—because of the inaccurate, hateful, un-Christ-like, and plain stupid things Christians said about him (yep, that’s us good ‘ol American Christians). In their attempt to save a dead person, Christians have likely eternally killed her husband.
So I hope Michael is able to run out of office DeLay and Frist and all the others that (mis)used Terri much like they (mis)use Christianity (that is, of course, assuming these guys are not put in jail first—what good Christians they are!).
Thanks to the Dark Christianity blog for pointing this story out.
