Schiavo parents back in federal court

(CNN) -- Hours after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected pleas to intervene in the case of Terri Schiavo on Thursday, her parents again asked a federal judge in Florida to order the brain-damaged woman's feeding tube restored.

Bob and Mary Schindler are asking District Judge James Whittemore -- the same judge who turned down their request for an injunction to keep their daughter alive earlier this week -- to reconsider that decision.

Whittemore has scheduled a hearing on the matter for 6 p.m., and Terry said the Schindlers plan to attend.

After the Supreme Court rejection, a Florida judge denied three other legal requests from Schiavo's parents.

It occured to me today that the statements given by the Bush family (who I voted for) in recent days amounts to the following....If George and Jeb were riding together in a car and suddenly realized that about 20 yards over across the road their was some guy drowning their kids .....they would get out of the car and 'Just Watch'....why ....welll there is a solid white line on this side of the road, a solid yellow line on the other side, no cross-walk and then there's that infernal "Do not trespass" sign between them and the guy drowning their kids...I cannot help but wonder how their family feels about this. Are they just as callous or is their possibly one of them with backbone....

Dear Governor Jeb Bush:

We who are so conserned about this Teri Schindler/Schiavo situation come to you as her last resort. I would like for you to read the book of Esther in the Old Testament. If you are a God-fearing and God-honoring person, you will read this story and when you come to the part where her uncle says to her :"How do you know but that you have come to power for such a time as this?",
you will see that the same question can be asked of you. Ruth was a plain peasant Jew. But she became queen of a great land. When the entire Jewish race was slated for destruction, she was the chosen one by God to be instrumental in their deliverance, because of her position. You are the
man now. This woman deserves the right to life, food, water, and everything else that your state constitution is to uphold. There is a way. And even though it may not make you popular with men, it will be a sweet fragrance to God, who has given you your current power and authority.
We pray for you daily, as well as for Teri and her family. May God direct you into his perfect will. Sincerely, one who cares greatly.

I apologize for this 'back to back' blog. I will try not to make a bad habit out of it....
It just occurred to me that , If things turn out for the worst, then it will show the 'common citizen' that George and Jeb are the best thing that ever happened to the democratic party....they already have me espousing the deeds of Jesse Jackson..And I thought that was impossible!
Cynicism aside we are praying for Terri. I am trying to walk in forgiveness towards those 2 guys, it is so hard to forgive right now but I/we are trying.
Please help Jesus.

teejas,
I guess you won't be voting for W in 2008, then?

Nothing like political cannibalism to feed our real ideological opponents. Just sayin'.
