News is hitting the
wires that Terri Schiavo has died in a Florida hospice, and we mourn the death
of this innocent young woman. I am appalled that a woman whose only crime
was being disabled was allowed to be murdered when questions remain to this day
regarding the cause of her impairment, her care (or lack thereof) at the hands
of her husband, and numerous claims of abuse and neglect that have yet to be
Jim Bramlett’s commentary on this matter
appears below, and brings a chilling reminder of what can happen to a nation
that turns from following the precepts of God, and steps from under His blessing
Requiem for Terri, and the

Hitler is laughing. That is, if
laughter is possible at his new address.
In the spirit of Nazism, our
nation has now executed a disabled person. The brave new world is
We now qualify as full-fledged members of the New World
Order. The U.N. Committee on the Disabled in February 2005 drafted
language for an international treaty on human rights that left the door open for
mercy killing of the disabled.
Terri Schiavo committed no crime; she was
not on life support; she was not comatose; she was not terminally ill. She
was just impaired. But this living person was executed by the state
because of her disability, to the glee of the pro-death, liberal crowd.
Dr. Kevorkian, with his rude attorney, Geoffrey Fieger, and the New York Times
and its clones must be doing a death dance, celebrating another victory.
The camel's nose is under the tent. The application of this
judicial precedent will spread. No disabled or infirm person is now safe.
Maybe it will spread enough to eventually engulf the ones who caused it.
No judge wanted to entertain the compelling evidence, including broken
bones, that her abusive husband caused her condition, and her death. This
explains the husband's obsession to have her killed.
No judge wanted to
consider a physician's report that Terri was hit on head between day 2 and day 6
after her so-called collapse in 1990. She reportedly suffered intracranial
hemorrhage while in hospital. A neurologist who examined the timeline of Terri's
brain scans found that for the first three days of her initial hospitalization
in 1990, her brain scans were normal. Then suddenly, on the sixth day, her
brain scan showed evidence of a massive injury.
No judge wanted to
entertain the evidence that Terri was cognizant, would smile, would interact,
and would even try to make words, such as one witness reported shortly before
her death, an attempted, "I want to live." Forget the evidence; the judge had
made up his mind.
The $1 million plus awarded by a jury for
Terri's care and rehabilitation was instead used by her husband to pay
silver-tongued, right-to-die, ghoulish lawyer George Felos to orchestrate her
death, with full court approval. It is not surprising that Judge George W.
Greer received a contribution for his 2004 re-election campaign from this same
Unlike terrorist murderers with mere underwear placed over
their heads, the cause celebre of the mainstream media, that same media would
not take up this innocent woman's cause, much less with the same investigative
zeal as they defend terrorists.
Shame upon this nation! Shame upon
On March 22, I wrote and forwarded a message titled,
"Terri Schiavo – Passion Week comparison," showing some parallels between the
murder of Terri Schiavo and the murder of Jesus, such as both being totally
innocent but killed by the rulers of their day. Since then I have seen
several similar messages and articles. I cannot improve on what's already
been said, but there is one other poignant analogy that we should not
Terri was only one person, but the intensive, worldwide
obsession with her plight tells me that she was chosen to be symbolic, evidence
that through her God is sending us a message.
What is that
SYMBOLISM 1. Terri Schiavo's body represents
America. Both her death and America's death are decreed by the judicial
system. This is the same system that, beginning with Roe v. Wade in 1973,
is responsible for the brutal murder of 45 million or more unborn babies.
It is a system saturated with the blood of millions of innocent people.
All this blood is crying out from the ground, as Abel's blood cried out from the
ground in Genesis 4:10. God is not deaf.
It is also the same
judiciary that has thumbed its nose at God Almighty, declaring Him not wanted
and not welcomed in the public arena.
God has said, "I have set
before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that
both thou and thy seed may live" (Deuteronomy 30:19).
actions of its arrogant judiciary, America has chosen death and cursing.
But except for local, elected ones, the judges are nominated by the executive
branch of our government and confirmed by the legislative branch; therefore the
whole government is complicit. The policies of death have also been
supported by the news media, which are complicit. Many others are
complicit, including a lukewarm, sometimes apostate church which has departed
from the faith and has not taken a militant stand against the culture of death.
As during Nazi Germany, much of the church has meekly capitulated to the
dominant culture and political correctness. Virtually the whole nation is
SYMBOLISM 2. Terri has been partially brain dead for
years. By removing God from our government and institutions, America has
been partially brain dead for years, since the mid-20th Century. I say
"partially" because there has continued to be strong voices for truth and
righteousness, but they are typically drowned out by the shouts of the crowd,
the same crowd that in Jesus' day shouted, "Crucify Him." They did then,
and they do now. The dominant secularists hate Jesus, His servants, and
SYMBOLISM 3. Since just before Palm Sunday, Terri's death
has been gradual, by starvation and dehydration. America's death has been
gradual, by starvation from the Bread of Life, Jesus (John 6:36), and
deprivation of water, symbolic of the Holy Spirit (John 7:38-39) and God's Word
(Ephesians 5:25). Just a public mention of the holy name "Jesus" in modern
America can bring attack or ridicule. Committed Christians who supported
Terri were called "fanatics."
There is a spiritual famine in the
land. God said, "I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread,
nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD" (Amos 8:11).
The words of the LORD have been proclaimed widely in America more than in any
other nation in history, but not many are hearing.
For America, the
famine may not only be spiritually symbolic, but it actually may become physical
Regarding Terri's plight, a statement issued by the Union of
Orthodox Rabbis of the United States and Canada said: "When evil becomes
'legally' sanctioned by government, it rises to a higher order of evil -- that
of Sodom. Legality does not dictate morality. The Almighty dictates morality.
"America is being tested. Will we pass or will we fail?
When we are attacked by WMDs (which a U.S. Senate study said was
not "if" but "when") the economy may collapse, causing a literal famine from
food, and water may be poisoned. This would cause the nation to literally
suffer the same fate of starvation and dehydration as did Terri.
What a strange irony!
The psalmist wrote these divinely inspired
and chilling words: "God presides over heaven's court; he pronounces judgment on
the judges: 'How long will you judges hand down unjust decisions? … But these
oppressors know nothing; they are so ignorant! And because they are in darkness,
the whole world is shaken to the core'" (Psalm 82:1-5, NLT).
yourself. I believe a shaking is coming.
If I were not a Christian
and confident of God's protection, I would head for the hills right now!
