Blogburst for Terri: Good Day for a Miracle

Judge Whittenmore has refused to order Terri's tube re-inserted. Remember all those tactics the MSM employed during the election like skewed polls? ABC ran a poll on Sunday that showed the majority opposing the action of the Congress.

As Ed at Captain's Quarter's notes, the wording of the poll was again misrepresenting Terri's condition.

Schiavo suffered brain damage and has been on life support for 15 years. Doctors say she has no consciousness and her condition is irreversible. Her husband and her parents disagree about whether she would have wanted to be kept alive. Florida courts have sided with the husband and her feeding tube was removed on Friday.

No where in the questionnaire did it state what time on Sunday the poll was conducted, but obviously most evangelicals are involved in church related activities well into the afternoon. And considering the way the poll is broken down, the sampling of 500 is far from scientific. So the MSM is fashioning a stick with which to beat Terri's conservative supporters in Congress.

Pray without ceasing for Terri. God gives us the opportunity to do the right thing ourselves, but regardless of what we do He is still in charge. We still have to do everything we can to save Terri, but it's apparent that if she is spared the horrible fate that our world has condemned her to it won't be due to our own strength.
