Does Michael Schiavo's sadism know no bounds?

MSNBC is reporting that Michael Schiavo will be burying his murder victim in an undisclosed location, and will not tell her family where. MSNBC does their best to try to portray this inhumane act of cruelty in a “neutral light”.

Michael Schiavo's brother, Scott, who lied to the courts to bolster Michael's false claim that Terri wanted to be tortured to death, said, “This isn’t over by a long shot, We’re going to get our name right. The world is going to know who Mike was, they’re going to know Mike wasn’t a beast.” Yeah, good luck with that, Scott. Maybe you could warm up with an easier one, say Charles Manson.

You people are crazy! Mike loved his wife and couldnt stand to see her suffer any longer than the already grueling 15 years her parents tourted her through. good for him and i hope mike gets what he want

If believing that makes you rationalize the murder that was committed, then I guess it would be impossible to get you to see the truth. The Germans refused to believe that Hitler was as evil as other people were saying. A lie can be so comforting when the truth is ugly.

And the revisionist history begins. Amanda you would be wise to review your history. You'd find that Michael was a full party to Terri's being kept alive for the first seven years of her ordeal. Only when he started spending the money on his lawyer and his mistress rather than his wife did he suddenly remember she wanted to die. You can stop defending him and apologizing for him, he has a lawyer for that.

"Does Michael Schiavo's sadism know no bounds?"

In answer to your presumably rhetorical question, NO, his sadism knows no bounds.

Because the vast majority of the human race will do whatever they please when the restraints of conscience, morals, scruples, and ethics are all removed, what other boundary or limit is there to evil? There is no other boundary or limit.

I repeat, no, his sadism has no bounds. And evidently, there are no longer any bounds either for the majority of people in general.

"A lie can be so comforting when the truth is ugly"

.....I knew that if I stuck around here long enough Danny and I would finally agree on SOMETHING. After all, the thought of an afterlife full of sheer bliss is pretty dang comforting, isn't it?....::wink::

Amanda, I pray that you are never put in a position to end up being married to a sadistic monster such as Michael Schiavo. Love does not included attempted strangulation or torturing this woman in such a sadistic way for such a long period of time by denying to her the necessary rehabilitation and comfort that she required.

It is sad that there are people who are so caught up in their egotistical world of selfishness that they fail to understand the real meaning of marital love. Having a concubine on the side is not showing marital love.

Pray for Amanda?

That's strange............millions of prayers didn't work for Terri----a lady who needed a "miracle"---- so why on earth would one prayer work for Amanda---a lady who merely disagrees with you?

Posted by: boomSLANG at April 1, 2005 04:56 PM

Prayers are not "orders" we give God, but requests. Some things, in His wisdom are not optional, some are, and He will alter His actions based on our prayers in those cases. All we can do is make sure we make our desires known, and make sure those desires come from a faithful and obedient heart.

As for the afterlife being merely a comfortable lie -- is it a comfortable lie to the Christians in the Middle East and Communist China who suffer daily for their faith? Was it a comfortable lie to those throughout history that endured torture and murder rather than renounce their faith? It can hardly be said to be a "comfortable lie" when true obedience and holiness requires self-sacrifice to the point of often being ostracized by society. Pretending there is no God to ease a the guilt of sin would be the comfortable lie.

Ummm....."He".... is omniscient, remember?... so he KNOWS what "our desires" are.......and, "He" knows if you've been bad, or good, so be good for goodness sake!.....:: insert Holiday music::

>>> ALL <<< religious belief is subjective. Example: The belief in an afterlife is impossible without the greedy desire for it.

Posted by: boomSLANG at April 1, 2005 05:50 PM

How would any belief not be subjective?

The idea that a belief in an afterlife requires a greed for it is illogical. Not all who believe in an afterlife also believe they will fair well in it. Sometimes belief is simply acquiescing to the probable, regardless of how positive that might be.

Amanda has a right to her opinions. However, if everyone back tracks to the day of Terri's "fall" there are many unanswered questions such as: Why when she had a body X-ray the day after she was hospitalized did they find tiny fractures on her ribs, femur, and spine. (Abused women learn to cover up their wounds when they are intimidated). Michael Schiavo is 6.6 with an admitted temper.Also: was he not in a hurry to turn away beneficial therapy that might have restored some of Terri's functions? Seems almost 2 million dollars in hospital settlements clouded Michaels judgments.
Read the documents Amanda. This loving husband's behavior is suspicious at best.

"How would any belief not be subjective?"

Danny, let me clarify. There's obviously a difference between "natural" belief, and "supernatural" belief. Hopefully, we can agree that religion falls into the realm of the "supernatural".

IMO, knowledge and truth are ascertained by reason and logic, not by supernatural revelation. I, as an individual, and upon death, stand to gain nothing by living by this philosophy.

"Pretending there is no God to ease a the guilt of sin would be the comfortable lie."

I found that statement amusing since God's name is so often invoked when sin is being committed or to absolve one's self of consequences.

Invoking God or the bible to back a point is always done because it's easier and makes you look better and in the hopes of making yourself look more credible.
Why say "I think" or "I believe" when you can abuse the bible and God's name to speak for you and abuse it to pass judgement onto others.

Michael Schiavo, liar, adultress, selfish, self seeking, heartless, thief, sadistic, no morals, no concious,abuser, MURDERER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A really good example for your children that you fathered shacked up with another woman. How do you look at yourself each and everyday? I wonder what you reaction would be if it was your daughter, would you remember after you get millions in settlement that oh yeah she didn't want anymore therapy, phsiotherapy anything to help her. WOW! if not for you stopping that Terri would still be able to swallow food and water, she would still be alive. It took you 15 years but you got away with MURDER!

Amanda and people who agree with her - My 12 year old child has severe Cerebal Palsy. She cannot talk. She cannot walk, use the restroom, eat, or drink. She needs constant care. She will never improve and my life is not my own. Should I stop feeding her? She may be uncomfortable and not want to live that way.
NO - her life is a gift. She responds with her eyes. She shows love when she sees her family. My other children have learned how to have compassion and be helpful to others. My oldest son is in medical school. He wants to do something to help people with disabilities. My life is not what I expected, but it is wonderful. I have family and friends that help me, a husband who will do anything for us, and two other children that I more than proud of. Her life may not be your definition of perfect but it has meaning. All life does. I hope that as you grow older to learn to appreciate the gift of life.

believe or not God sees everything. micheal schiavo abused his disabled wife and could have been responsible for her injury. if he is, and i'm not making any acussation her, but i will say this florida has replaced every other state in % of violence against women and children. the world is watching and no one will be there this summer at least o. J. didn't burn nicole's body. micheal wanted to erase terri from his life. he will never erase the blood from his hands. he will br haunted by what he did to her throughout ALL ETERNITY and then soom.

louisiana has been replaced by florida as the # one state that supports violence against women, rumors or rumors, and dust is dust. powers beyond micheal schiaho control have been unleased. his face will be more recognized around the world than Elvis. he will did alone after suscide or he will spent all eternity searching for the loved he distroyed.

Sharon:

I'm sorry if you can only see things as either black or white and not all the shades of gray in between.

It's not anyone's decision on what should happen with your daughter. That decision should be hers, and in absense of that, it's yours and your family's and noone else's.

There is no disagreement within your family on what should happen with her so there isn't even an issue to bring up.

You need to look beyond your irrational fears of falling for pro-life propaganda about how all the disabled will be killed off and see things for what they are.
Terri's family was and is an utterly dysfunctional one with both sides determined to pester and villify the other and not yield even an inch to come together and resolve their dispute.

What Terri would have wanted certainly didn't matter to her parents as they said that even if they'd know it's what she wanted, they wouldn't honour it.

The day Terri's family decided that they did not want to talk to each other any longer, but would prefer to fight it out in court where it does not belong, is the day they both lost any chance at a dignified solution both sides could live with.
