The American Taliban Issues a Fatwa – The Religious Right Threatens to Kill One of its Own

He’s a Republican, a Southern Baptist and the Judge at the center of the Terri Schiavo case. His rulings in the Schiavo case are thoughtful, heartfelt, well reasoned and worded to the letter of the law and can be viewed here (http://abstractappeal.com/schiavo/infopage.html) . Further, Greer’s decision has been supported by the second circuit court, a federal judge (Whitmore) a three judge panel from the 11th circuit court, the full 11th circuit court and the supreme court. Sounds like a pretty rock solid, stand up, conservative Christian kind of guy, the kind of guy you would want in your good old fashioned Bible belivin’ church right? Wrong!

How much you want to bet the RR has not even read the decisions or taken the time to study the applicable laws? Worse still, how much you want to bet the RR has read the decisions and studied the laws and decided to distort and twist things just enough to drive their demented followers into an all out feeding frenzy?


Here's what D. James Kennedy of Coral Ridge Ministries has to say:
It is a striking and frightening fact that in America today one state judge can be suspended from office for refusing to remove the Ten Commandments from public display-as Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore was in August-while another, Judge Greer, can order the death of an innocent human being without any consequence whatsoever.

So, Kennedy wants consequences eh? I wonder where this type of rhetoric might lead…

From the News Telegraph:
A judge who ordered the death of a profoundly disabled woman at the centre of one of America's most controversial "right to die" cases has been given armed protection after receiving threats to his life.


To the fury of pro-life campaigners, Judge George Greer, 63, ruled on Friday that Terri Schiavo's feeding tube should be withdrawn.

The judge, who is registered blind, is now in fear for his safety and is accompanied by two sheriff's deputies everywhere he goes.

More on the story from Baptists for ethics…

The
St. Petersburg Times portrayed Pinellas-Pasco Circuit Judge George W. Greer--who has ruled that Terri Schiavo’s feeding tube can be removed, allowing her to die--as an unlikely figure to be at the center of an international debate.

A long-time friend described him as “the religious right.”

Pro-life groups have protested Greer’s rulings in the case. He has received e-mails and letters calling him a murderer. One man asked him if he is related to the ruthless Nazi doctor Josef Mengele. A woman who believed his decisions weren’t Christian called and asked if he thought he was going to heaven.

He has received death threats and is accompanied by deputies on his way to and from work as a security precaution.

Greer belongs to Calvary Baptist Church in Clearwater, Fla., but his attendance waned after a Baptist publication the church supported became critical of him.

“If I don’t like what the St. Pete Times writes about me, my only recourse is to cancel my subscription,” he said. He said he stopped his donations to the church, though he is still a member.

The Florida Baptist Witness editorialized on Terri Schiavo’s case in the Sept. 4 and Sept. 25, 2003, issues. Executive Editor James Smith called on Greer to “err on the side of conservative judgment” and
urged Florida Baptists to write the judge expressing their “concern about the sanctity of human life in Terri’s case.”

Greer later told the newspaper he disagreed with the editorials and called them “unchristian.”

“There’s a difference between me saying, I think you’re in error and I wish you’d reconsider your position, as opposed to, you’re wrong, you’re dead wrong, you’re stupid,” he said in
an interview with the paper’s managing editor in August.

Greer told the St. Petersburg Times that critics who condemn him in the religious press “have nothing to do with my relationship with God. They can’t affect it.”

I know it's unrelated. But has your type always been so small? I seem to remember it being larger. I dig your blog but found it very hard to read today.

Hello guys!
My 14-year-old sister Megan came bounding into the kitchen wearing her black bikini. I had little time to react before she jumped up and wrapped her arms and legs around me. She squealed loudly in my ear and I had to grab onto the counter to keep from falling over.
… I leaned down over her body and licked along her nipples once gain. I slowly dragged my tongue down her stomach and tickled her sides. She giggled and I laughed too. My sweet baby sis, still so ticklish. My sweet baby sis, who I was about to make love to.
I love lolitas !! and sex :)
Young lolita it is a best !!!
