Mercy Killing!!!!

I have heard that Doctors in New Orleans euthanized several patients when the lights went out. Lordy Lordy Lordy!
Jennifer asked the bunch who read her blog to answer the you think it is ever right to do so?

I would hesitate to euthanize a patient, I would not take such a step lightly or without subsequent nightmares and 4 AM quarterbacking, but I would do it if it was the right thing to do. In fact, I have done so. Or rather, signed the paper to allow the doctor to do so. Trouble is, I have actually been in the position of that fellow on the bed, and that experience has, well, sort of coloured my opinions a bit.
When I was lying dead on the bathroom floor (anaphalactic shock leading to cardiac arrest for those that care), I am glad my wife didn't just pick up her bible and say "well, God's will be done". Heck no, she called 911, and 20 minutes later I opened my eyes. When the doctor said to her "well, if he lives, he will be a vegetable for the rest of his life (he did say that, the bastard!) my wife said "well, I'll see what happens". I am thankful to her that she did wait to see what would happen, it would have been so easy to simply say....."He wouldn't want to live like that, don't resucitate him." I had always told her that if I was in such a situation, to not resusitate me. Glad she didn't listen to me! I never asked them to "turn out my lights", I fought for every single measely hour, every minute, every second sometimes. I was barely conscious, barely on this earth, and I fought hard to stay here. I died three more times that night. Finally, I was stable. I could go on and on, but my point is this....nobody wants to leave. We might have to, as responsible adults, help them to enter God's kingdom. Trust me on this one...making that decision for the right reasons will not jepardize your place there. If you do nothing, that too is a decision, and you WILL be judged on that decision. I have been there. I am NOT afraid to die, I have SEEN what happens after you die. But I will still fight! Most people will. A grown up will assess the situation and do the proper thing. Sometimes the proper thing is to bring the old geezer back to life....other times, it might be a mercy to "punch my ticket on the night train". I find it hard to judge somebody who finds themselves in that position, I mean its not like its your dog, lying there with a broken back from an automobile, and licking your hand, asking you to make it better. Or maybe it is.....

Oh my, what a speech! I surprise myself at times!

God's Judgement upon His Errant People

The Tsunami and the earthquake are God's judgement on the Muslim extremists, who are the true "enemies of God". I know, they don't think so, but honestly, open your minds you bozos and see where God is setting His flaming sword down! I think you are taking God's name in vain! God's judgement is pretty final, and not especially discriminating...after all, if you are an innocent, you get called a little earlier than usual...if you are a guilty, then you are facing,! If they were NOT enemies of God,then Allah would have spared them from flood and earthquake and destruction. It says so right here in the Koran...quote....

008.013 YUSUFALI: This because they contended against Allah and His Messenger: If any contend against Allah and His Messenger, Allah is strict in punishment.
PICKTHAL: That is because they opposed Allah and His messenger. Whoso opposeth Allah and His messenger, (for him) lo! Allah is severe in punishment.
SHAKIR: This is because they acted adversely to Allah and His Messenger; and whoever acts adversely to Allah and His Messenger-- then surely Allah is severe in requiting (evil).

008.014 YUSUFALI: Thus (will it be said): "Taste ye then of the (punishment): for those who resist Allah, is the penalty of the Fire."
PICKTHAL: That (is the award), so taste it, and (know) that for disbelievers is the torment of the Fire.
SHAKIR: This-- taste it, and (know) that for the unbelievers is the chastisement of fire.

this is from...

Note that those verses say the God will do all the punishing...not the Al Quaida or Hamas the CIA, or whatever extremist organization is out there. The Imams are going to have a hard time blaming this one on the United States!Unlike the angry God though, I feel for the women, children and innocents who get caught under His sythe when he mows. So I am donating my blood to the Red Cross today, and as much money as possible to go to relief. Blimey, I didn't want to vent about that! Doesn't make me feel any better....people are dying all over the place (35 thousand last estimate! and Winter coming in!)

And no, don't go telling me that the "fire" is some afterlife hell, these verses are all about here on Earth, and waging war. Unlike a lot of people, I actually READ these things before I stand on my hind feet and expound upon them!

Here's a prayer for you..."God, if it so great in heaven, why do you spare so many people to suffer on here on Earth!"
