Government imposed religion

From WorldNetDaily:

Despite saturation press coverage of the Terri Schiavo case, Felos's New Age spirituality has not emerged as an issue. However, as Richard Land, head of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission said to the St. Petersburg Times, the Terri Schiavo case represents a "clash of two very disparate civilizations – the Judeo-Christian civilization, which is based upon the sanctity of human life, and the neopagan, relativist, quality-of-life civilization."

Adds James A. Smith Sr., executive editor of the Florida Baptist Witness: "Both worldviews are in play in the Schiavo debate and it's long past time for the public to understand this."

Felos wrote a book titled “Litigation As Spiritual Practice” in which he claims a incapacitated woman communicated with him telepathically to end her life.

As I continued to stay beside Mrs. Browning at her nursing home bed, I felt my mind relax and my weight sink into the ground. I began to feel light-headed as I became more reposed. Although feeling like I could drift into sleep, I also experienced a sense of heightened awareness. As Mrs. Browning lay motionless before my gaze, I suddenly heard a loud, deep moan and scream and wondered if the nursing home personnel heard it and would respond to the unfortunate resident. In the next moment, as this cry of pain and torment continued, I realized it was Mrs. Browning.

I felt the mid-section of my body open and noticed a strange quality to the light in the room. I sensed her soul in agony. As she screamed I heard her say, in confusion, 'Why am I still here … why am I here?' My soul touched hers and in some way I communicated that she was still locked in her body. I promised I would do everything in my power to gain the release her soul cried for. With that the screaming immediately stopped. I felt like I was back in my head again, the room resumed its normal appearance, and Mrs. Browning, as she had throughout this experience, lay silent.

He now fights to end Terri Schiavo's life, have skimmed off a very sizable portion of the money earmarked for her care. Normally there is outrage when someone bilks a disabled person out of their money under the ruse of religion. The media seem to have no problem with it this time.

In a very much related story the Chicago Daily Herald reports:

Deanna Whetstine, formerly of St. Charles, filed a lawsuit in Kane County Monday asking for more than $50,000 because she was exposed to witchcraft, threats and sexual advances at the St. Charles campus of the hospital from July 2002 to December 2004, according to the suit.

According to the lawsuit, Whetstine went to Libman for treatment of reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome, a neurological syndrome characterized by disabling pain.

During the treatment, Whetstine claims she was taught spells, told her current religion of Buddhism was bad and falsely told her medical condition was terminal.

Whetstine divorced her husband at Libman’s behest and moved in with the doctor at her home on Elm Street in St. Charles, where she was forced to take care of the house and take nude photos of Libman, the lawsuit contends.

It's one thing to openly espouse the combination of religion and medicine, as some hospitals do. Patients know that religious practices are part of the treatment. I've had many doctors pray with me during a visit, after they ask permission. But this, like the Terri Schiavo case, is an example of professional people imposing the religion on people under medical care.

>>> "Government imposed religion." <<<

More like "Religion imposed ignorance"........ as in, you believe and "minister" that the entire population of this planet with the exception of those who share your beliefs---though of course, excluding those in all rival sects---will spend Eternity in an infinite Hell of suffering.....and yet, you consider YOUR religion the most "tolerant" and "loving".

When you calm down, you need to ask yourself why you are so hateful toward Christianity. And be honest with yourself.

.....and when you get done playing the "diplomatic, sanctimonious calm guy" card, you need to take off your spiritial blind fold and go re-read some of your own blog headlines......then get back to me about "hate".
