Jesus said, "I Thirst."

With the slow and brutal murder of Terri Schiavo taking place before our very eyes, I find it sadly ironic that part of our Lord's torment included thirst. Because the media is lying to us, telling us that it is a painless way to die, the level of public outrage is shockingly low. The facts differ. I thank the editors of Touchstone magazine for pointing this out. Instead we are treated to the photos of small children being put in handcuffs and escorted into police cruisers for the apparantly abominable crime of offering Terry a glass of water. It is against the law in Florida to starve a dog to death because that is considered inhumane. But when a person becomes an inconvenience, we will stop at no lengths to eliminate them and call it mercy.

I found your blog becuase I did a profile search on one of the books I am reading--Dr. Walther's The Proper Distinction Between Law and Gospel, and found your blog.

I'm not sure if you, or anyone reading this blog has read the offical statement from the LCMS about this case, but it is very interesting.

Here is the link to the Lutheran Reaction to Extended Stay for Terri Schiavo by The Rev. Dr. Gerald B. Kieschnick, President, The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod.

Hi Andrew S.,
First, thanks for checking my blog.

Second, I commend your for reading Walther's "Law and Gospel." There are few books which have had as much influence on me as that one. I wish everyone would read it.

And thirdly, thanks for the link. The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod has a strongly pro-life position and this case is a clear example of killing the weak when they inconvenience the strong.
