I tell you, the Time Magazine of late is getting worse than the tabloids that I see in line at the super market.

This story in the latest edition of Time (Tabloid) Magazine.

Was John Paul II Euthanized?

In a provocative article, an Italian medical professor argues that Pope John Paul II didn't just simply slip away as his weakness and illness overtook him in April 2005. Intensive care specialist Dr. Lina Pavanelli has concluded that the ailing Pope's April 2 death was caused by what the Catholic Church itself would consider euthanasia. She bases this conclusion on her medical expertise and her own observations of the ailing pontiff on television, as well as press reports and a subsequent book by John Paul's personal physician. The failure to insert a feeding tube into the patient until just a few days before he died accelerated John Paul's death, Pavanelli concludes. Moreover, Pavanelli says she believes that the Pope's doctors dutifully explained the situation to him, and thus she surmises that it was the pontiff himself who likely refused the feeding tube after he'd been twice rushed to the hospital in February and March. Catholics are enjoined to pursue all means to prolong life.

Where were they when Terry Shiavo was starved to death... no food or water and she wasn't on her death bed until then.

Dignity in Life and Death

I guess politics are run pretty much the same all over the world. Inject a lie and present it as the truth as in the Time article.

The Catholic Church has been consistant in it's stance on Abortion and Euthanasia. The election season is upon us, and I'm sure we will see an abundance more of this kind of "perhabs it's true" garbage ment to place doubt in the mind of the faithful.

..... lets pray that Catholic Christians and non-Catholic Christians (everyone actually) know the truths about these two important issue during the elections. If we don't get it right on these issues, we'll never work out heathcare, imagration, war, environment and others.
