I was listening to NPR's "Your Call" this AM. One of the commentators mentioned that not very many people have made the link between the Terri Schiavo case and the denegration of the institution of marriage. Lets think about this a bit.
Aparently, the sanctimoneous prophelactic the reichwingers have been trying to wrap around heterosexual marriage has been ruptured inseminating words of hatered and venom toward all those who believe contrary to their "right-to-life" extremist views. Every dagger slung toward Michael Schiavo makes a bigger hole in the argument for protecting marriage and the sanctity of the institution between a man and a woman.
Why hasn't the government pushed the position of protecting Michael Schiavo's rights as a Husband to know what the wishes of his wife are? Every move made in this whole sad case of Terri Schiavo works to further kill the movement to protect marriage in general - between man and a woman, or any other permutation it takes.
