IT'S NOT JUST THE "RELIGIOUS RIGHT":
The Mainstream Media Apply the Broad Brush Once Again
Irrepressible St. Blog parishioner Mark Shea observes that the New York Times has already begun spinning the Terri Schindler-Schiavo case into yet another fictitious "religious right" vs. "the rest of us" sham.
Yet the following article, originally linked by Mr.Shea, was posted by a critic of the Let's Rush the Handicapped to the Grave movement who is, by all indications, neither religious nor much of a right-winger:
THEY SHOOT HORSES, DON'T THEY?
Contra the Times and other mainstream media outlets, the battle for Terri's life is NOT about the "religious right" versus everyone else. It's about the Culture of Death versus everyone else.
Besides, with a few notable exceptions, the "religious right" ignored this case until only a few weeks ago.And even then, it seems, mostly to draw pontentially fund-raising media attention to themselves. Case in point: The discreditable Randall Terry --who has accomplished nothing for years except give the pro-life movement a black eye-- didn't show up at Terri's "hospice" until last week.
