Pope Vs Terry Schiavo – Oh the ironic possibilities!

VATICAN CITY – Pope John Paul II is getting nutrition from a tube in his nose, the Vatican said Wednesday, shortly after the frail pontiff appeared at his window in St. Peter’s Square and managed only a rasp when he tried to speak…

How interesting are the possibilities for irony & poetic (or Popetic) justice ,that given the strong stand of the catholic church regarding this poor Schiavo woman’s 15 year ordeal and forcing her to postpone the peace that her body deserves; that the Pope might be facing the prospect of living out his own life on a respirator with a feeding tube artificially prolonging his life & suffering for decades also.

Just as an aside, it’s note worthy that many of those so stridently accusing Schiavo’s husband & the doctors of murder are some of the same republican hypocrites that would urge the death penalty on some prisoner or watch entire nations starving on TV without reaching for their checkbook to fight for some starving African child.

If we’re the praying type, let’s all pray for Schiavo, The Pope, the poverty stricken, starving children of the world and for our own sorry ass souls while we’re at it.
