Terri Schiavo Will Have Vengeance

Filed under: Democratic Idiocy,Faith,Prayers,Pro-Life,Science — Sisyphus @ 6:34 pm

PatientTurns out we were right– Terri Schiavo had nothing wrong with her that the miracle of technology- powered by electrons, the angels of the Lord- couldn’t have cured:

He was beaten and left for dead one night in a robbery while walking home in 1999. His skull was crushed and his brain severely damaged. The doctor said if he pulled through at all, he’d be a vegetable for the rest of his life.

For six years, the man could not speak or eat.

On occasion he showed signs of awareness, and he moved his eyes or a thumb to communicate. His arms were useless. He was fed through a tube.

But researchers chose him for an experimental attempt to rev up his brain by placing electrodes in it. And here’s how his mother describes the change in her son, now 38:

“My son can now eat, speak, watch a movie without falling asleep,” she said Wednesday while choking back tears during a telephone news conference. “He can drink from a cup. He can express pain. He can cry and he can laugh.

“The most important part is he can say, ‘Mommy’ and ‘Pop.’ He can say, ‘I love you, Mommy’ … I still cry every time I see my son, but it’s tears of joy.”

The progress of the patient, who remains unidentified at the family’s request, is described more formally in a report in Thursday’s issue of the journal Nature.

Experts called the results encouraging but cautioned that the experimental treatment must be tried in more patients before its value can be assessed. The researchers are already proceeding with a larger study.

The article attempts to argue that this technique couldn’t have helped Terri Schiavo, as she was in a Persistent Vegetative State (PVS). And maybe they’re right. But that doesn’t mean they’re right about the technologies that God will provide after this one.

If our nation had shown a little more tolerance, a little more patience, and a little more willingness to disregard the edicts of homicidal judges when a little thing like Human Life was on the line, Terri Schiavo would likely be fully conscious with this technology. If not with this one, than with the next one that’ll come out two years from now. God weighed us in the balance, testing our mettle by seeing if we’d let Terri live long enough for her restoration. We were weighed in the balance, and we were found wanting. Mene, mene, tekel, upharsin.

For myself, I am unperturbed. I went to the pro-Terri rallies, attempted to bring her food and water, and prayer for her for hours on end. I doubt many liberals carried on such efforts, however. For them, things will go badly in the Final Judgment. Terri will rise from her seat at the side of God, point them out, and curse them by name. Then God will cast them thence into the fires of perdition. On that glorious day, Heaven and Earth alike will be cleansed of the moonbat taint, secularism will be cast aside, and we shall know Peace and Glory everlasting under the aegis of the Lord. The liberals shall burn in lakes of fire, and their just sufferings shall be one of our finest pleasures. Tertullian said it, and so do I.

Glory everlasting unto you all. Amen.

UPDATE: Even Terri could’ve been helped. God, through the miracle of technology, has already presented us with the means of saving those in PVS. It is liberal cowardice and death-lust that prevents us from seizing the advantage. Liberals would rather an innocent woman die than admit they were wrong about anything, ever. Those are the kinds of people we’re dealing with, here. (H/t:  Psycheout.)

    In a language you invented in your garage. What’s a “non sequitir”? Speak English, or as close an approximation of pidgin dialect as you can manage.

  7. “Non sequitir” is Latin for “it does not follow”. Basically, you tried to correlate two unrelated things.

  8. Hey, Sisyphus, didn’t you see this story on LifeNews? I think they’re a more reliable source than CNN when it comes to life issues. But I know you’re very busy these days.

    A brain damaged man who had been in an incapacitated state for about six years has partially recovered from it thanks to an experimental surgery where doctors brought his brain back to life using electrodes. The surgery gives hope to disabled patients like Terri Schiavo who some say can’t recover from similar injuries.

    If the bloodthirsty pro-death judges would have just waited a little longer, Terri could have been cured. It just breaks your heart.

    I hope her brother Bobby Schindler makes some kind of statement about this. I’m sure the family is still shattered by the whole horrific incident. It’s something no family should ever have to endure.

    This is a great point. Think about all of the people who can be helped by this new technique; a few short months ago – heck, up until yesterday – the Left would have argued that nothing could be done for them, and pulling the plug would be no big deal. That’s liberal “compassion” for you.

  11. I’m pretty sure the technology to regrow damaged brain tissue is a long way off. Terri had half a brain. There was no chance of her ever functioning again. Oh, and…

    “attempted to bring her food and water”

    What would that have accomplished?

    They’d still rather kill them than admit they were wrong. That’s leftism for you.

    “I think this pretty much proves your hotly contested thesis that electrons are God’s angels.”

    Those without faith are also those without empiricism. If they doubt the Bible, how can they be expected to open their eyes to the miracle of Electrons?

    “What would that have accomplished?”

    Kept her alive, Salmo.

    “Billy Bob and I are organizing a remember Terry fund-raising rally for Senator Brownback. She will not have been murdered in vain.”

    Excellent news! President Brownback will ensure that her sacrifice ennobles our nation.

    We’ve been over this before, Brandon. Electrons are angels, protons are demons, and neutrons are the Pontius Pilates of the subatomic/metaphysical world. Go through the science thread, you’ll see where I proved it.

  17. Sisyphus, you “prove” nothing. You just spout random junk and then claim any dissenters are simply too “liberal” to see the nonexistant “proof” for your insanity.

    But I digress. PVS or not, Terri had lost the ability to consume food normally. Why do you think she was being fed through a tube?

  18. I saw the the pseudo-science thread, and thought it was the most laughably idiotic thing I’ve ever seen. You’ve never proven anything in your entire life other than you live in a State of Persistant Jackass-ery (or SPJ). You are utterly ignorant.

    How do you know?

    “Sisyphus, you “prove” nothing. You just spout random junk and then claim any dissenters are simply too “liberal” to see the nonexistant “proof” for your insanity.”

    If the shoe fits…

    “But I digress. PVS or not, Terri had lost the ability to consume food normally. Why do you think she was being fed through a tube?”

    Sure, that’s how she’ll eat, if that’s the only way you try to feed her. Wise up, man!

    “I saw the the pseudo-science thread, and thought it was the most laughably idiotic thing I’ve ever seen. You’ve never proven anything in your entire life other than you live in a State of Persistant Jackass-ery (or SPJ). You are utterly ignorant.”

    So, I guess you’ll get some moonbat judge to tell you it’s okay to kill me next? Typical death-obsessed liberals. If it weren’t for your stranglehold on the Judiciary, this woman -and countless babies- would still live.

    “Yeah, right. Let’s see you prove it—without resorting to a logical fallacy.”

    I’m not proving anything. I provided a link which proved it.

    Sorry, no good.

    You and your cohorts seem pretty death-obsessed to me…

    PVS or minimally conscious, Terri was not conscious enough to chew and swallow food. She would have choked.

  24. Well, first off, for all practical purposes she died in 1990. Second off, yes, she’s better off. If you had a choice between your body being kept alive by machines while your mind literally dissolved away, torturing your relatives as they looked at the shattered husk that once held their loved one, with absolutely no hope of recovery, or dying and being at peace, what would you choose?

  25. Hey Sisyphus, wanna answer me now?

    “You’ve proven nothing. The verses you quote on that topic in the Bible are “taken out of context.” You were making a literal translation of a book (the Bible) that is famous for symbolism and metaphoric speech (I know, I’ve only said that seven times) and therefore, does nothing for you. The “four corners of the Earth” is a famous expression (not literal). “above the circle of the Earth” in that a sphere is a circular figure, and the people are described as grasshoppers in that verse as well if I do recall correctly…and people are in no way grasshoppers, so how can the verse be taken literally? Otherwise by that logic we should all be hopping around, no? Also “He has fixed” the Earth whatever deal…is an orbit not a fixed path? Care to try again?

    But that’s just on some of the verses over there that I saw at some point.

    Comment by La Mona — July 31, 2007 @ 6:16 pm

    You’re a sorceress and a shape-shifter by your own admission, La Mona. You’ve also strongly implied that your ancestors slept with gorillas by the use of your name, which I’m told means “monkey” in some language or other. Why should your analysis of anything be trusted?

    Comment by Sisyphus — August 1, 2007 @ 7:05 am

    I told you that I was flexible. I’m sorry that you do not understand the English language to the extent to note that “bend” (my word) and “shift” (your word) are two different things. We’ve been over this before, and your arguement was shoved in the dirt then…as it is now. Your false labels of me through your word twisting are quite amusing considering I’m a Christian.

    And yes, “la mona” means “the monkey” in Spanish. That does not mean that I believe my ancestors slept with monkeys (that’s sick, and you seem to assume this of a lot of people…are you having issues?). La Mona is a nickname I have picked up. I like to climb things, and I a very hyper person. That and some more led to me being la mona and my other friend being la ardilla (the squirrel). It’s just a nickname between me, my friend, and our Spanish teacher(s).

    Any other baseless attacks of ignorance that you’re so fond of that I need to address?”

    You haven’t proven anything…

  26. Shape-bending sorceress, we really didn’t need to know this:

    “La Mona is a nickname I have picked up. I like to climb things, and I a very hyper person. That and some more led to me being la mona and my other friend being la ardilla (the squirrel).”

    The details of your frolicking are best kept between yourself, your priest, and your parents.

  27. Monkeys and squirrels should not comingle. It’s against G-d and nature.

    Let me guess; when you and your squirrel friend first met you said, “Lez be friends.” Oh, the depravity.

  28. Sisyphus, not that I expected a rational response, but could you at least try? I’m hyper. Expain to me the problem with that. Also, with this “shape-bending sorceress” stop. It doesn’t look good on you. You’re only proving my points by going on with it.

    Psycheout, I guess it’s a good thing that’s irrelevant here. We’re both humans…….(fighting the urge to say, “duh!”) Have any of you ever had a nickname? Oh yea, I forgot, it’s easier for you to just twist my words. (Btw, your credibility/arguement is going downhill for you here.)

    Either of you wish to come out of your ignorant, baseless, narrow-minded holes today?

    I’m just lucky that the fervor of my faith prevents your wicked magick from working on me. A lesser man would undoubtedly be toad by now.

    And Sisyphus (sorry I missed your comment last time). I’m a Christian. Now, to help you comprehend basic English, that means that I am “SAVED.” And I’ve read the Bible. In fact, it’s something that you don’t follow very well. (oh, I proved that, btw, What have you proven. Hint–nothing except your own stupidity.) And I doubt you know the real meaning of “repent.” (I’ll give ya a hint, it doesn’t mean “I’m sorry.”) Oh, and you still didn’t answer the questions at hand. What’s the matter? Can’t do it? Too much for ya? All you can do is call me names? Make baseless claims? Continue to build on an arguement of *gasp* labels that don’t exist of me? That’s really sad.

  38. “If our nation had shown a little more tolerance, a little more patience, and a little more willingness to disregard the edicts of homicidal judges when a little thing like Human Life was on the line.”

    1. You are not tolerant of the beliefs of others
    2. As to the “homicidal judges” part, I have heard you advocate killing “moonbats,” “RINOs,” and “treefrogs” on many occasions (which are really very silly names. Get out of the sand box.)
    Moonbat: A typical ad-hominem insult devised by conservative media personae. Used to smear politicians, actors, singers, community leaders, philosophers and regular citizens who speak out against any injustice carried out by any member of either the Republican party or any other highly conservative power. Basically, if you don’t tow the party line completely or if you question the judgement of the President or Republican leadership, you’re a “moon bat,” (completely insane.)

    Some historical moon bats: Plato, John Locke, Thomas Jefferson, Samuel Adams, John Brown, Henry David Thoreau, Fredrick Douglas, Gandhi, Lincoln.

    ALSO: term used by those on the extreme political right wing (known as “wingnuts”) to describe anyone who disagrees with their bizarre, fascistic world view. Used, despite the fact that it makes absolutely no sense, because they could not come up with a word or phrase as appropriately descriptive as “wingnut.”

    “What a bunch of moonbats!” cried the hooded Klansman, as the anti-Klan protesters marched down the street.

    RINO:Republican who acts and votes like a liberal and ignores the wishes of other Republicans

    Specter and McCain are RINOs
    ALSO:when people (normally in the hallways at school) go out to you, grab your shoulders and shove their knee up your butt so it kills your tail bone.

    Kendall gave me a huge rino yesterday. Ughh my butt hurts soo bad.

    Tree Frog: A mythical brand of beer popular in the 1960s. It never existed, but it sure was good!

    Why don’t you say the following:
    Instead of saying moonbats, why not say something more intelligent, like “nay-sayers of fascism,” or “people who I disagree with?” Instead of saying RINOs, why not say “leftist republicans,” or “shape-shifting devils?” For treefrog, why not say “democrats,” or “liberals?” I mean, this isn’t some William Golding fantasy novel. Grow up. And besides, aren’t those nicknames?

    BTW, Sisyphus, did you know that Sisyphus was a Greek mythological character? He was the first king of Ephyra, who was sentenced to roll a large boulder up a hill in Tartarus for eternity. What part of that influenced your choosing of the name Sisyphus? And aren’t the gods of Greek mythology heathenish?
