Fr. Rob informs us that the fight to save Terri Schindler’s life is not over. On August 31, the Florida Supreme Court will hear arguments on whether Terri’s Law is constitutional. Practically, it will decide whether this innocent woman will live or die.
Meanwhile. Judge George Greer, the judge who has shown himself to be a friend of Michael Schiavo and not Terri, is facing opposition in his re-election bid. (Oh, how I wish we had elections for judges in Massachusetts.) Fr. Rob has also found out that the legal firm representing the Diocese of St. Petersburg has contributed to Greer’s re-election campaign. The firm’s principal partner is also Bishop Robert Lynch’s personal attorney and friend. That’s a scandal and Bishop Lynch should either tell his friend to sever ties with Greer and repudiate its contribution or the diocese will sever ties with them. Yeah, I don’t expect it to happen either.
But, as an alternative, interested Catholics could show support for Greer’s opposition.
