An Execution in Florida
Written by: Answerman

Just a couple of hours ago, pursuant to a state court order, a man began what will be the two-week long execution of his wife. This execution will take place fully within public view. It will take place with the blessing of the Florida judicial system, and with the passive acceptance of our federal courts, the Florida Senate, and the United States Senate. And better than any event to date, it will perfectly symbolize the nihilistic, secularist hell into which our society has descended for the last couple of generations. When Terri Schiavo is killed, I will be embarrassed to be an American.

Terri Schiavo is not brain dead. She can breathe on her own. There is absolutely no evidence that she wishes to be starved to death. Her parents and friends and extended family want to take care of her. But her husband, who has a girlfriend and 3 kids out-of-wedlock, wants her dead. And the Florida courts simply don't care. We have become so debased as a society that we sit passively while a man murders his wife, while a court system sanctions the murder, and while Republicans in Congress and in the White House and in the Florida legislature engage in a kabuki-theater-like dance to look like they're going to do something about it. But they're not going to do something about it, because they too are products of this wretched, cowardly culture that has permitted such a gruesome story to continue far too long.

Liberalism has extended its deathlike grip over every aspect of our lives, public and private. It has sanctioned the slaughter of thousands of babies each year, it has abetted attacks upon our country and our way of life by bloodthirsty foreign savages, it has intentionally opened our borders to hordes of criminals and reprobates who rob us, destroy our civic institutions, and endanger our children. And now, for its next trick, it will stand front and center and execute a woman in cold blood for absolutely no reason whatsoever. And the whole disgusting spectacle will be covered by a handful of 24-hour news networks with shiny graphics.

Meanwhile, behind the scenes, we'll be figuring out ways to clone ourselves, have legally-recognized sexual relationships with chimpanzees, and make it easier for Cub Scouts to get raped by perverted homos. The Brave New World beckons, friends, and frankly, it doesn't appear there's much we can do about it.

In the meantime, as I watch Rome burn and hope it at least takes awhile for the fires to engulf the whole city, I'm appalled, ashamed, and aghast at what's going on. I just wish to God I could say I'm surprised.
