Name that Fuhrer

I had been swotting up for my latest post on spears, for the series no-one is talking about, Ancient Emerging Technologies part two. But once again, I've been diverted from my purpose by the utter insanity of the Schiavo case, so another note on that follows.

Numerous blogs are repeatedly equating Hitler with Michael Schiavo. Now, to help to draw out the subtle distinction between these two men, I have devised a very brief Quiz

Extreme Unction news quiz

Question: Which short, dark-haired, guy stole power, formulated Nazism, and waged war all over the planet. This man also organised the Holocaust, 6 million plus - Jews, gypsies, political opponents, and the feeble-minded - slain. Any ideas?

Answer: Adolf Hitler

If you answered Michael Schiavo, you are wrong. He lives in Florida at the moment, and his wife, Terri, went into a coma in the mid-1990s.

The Catholic Church must Shut its Collective Piehole re: Schiavo

I don't want to hear the Catholic Church mentioning euthanasia or eugenics or how it holds life sacred. I don't want to hear Catholics moaning about the inhumanity of Terri Schiavo's treatment. This is the same Catholic church that officially apologised for drawing up a seat and spectating at the Holocaust (6 million plus dead), nevermind the various evidence of the Vatican Ratline that smuggled war criminals and loot out of Germany in the aftermath of WWII. The Catholic Church really did not learn a thing from the Crusades or the Inquisition.

Is the same Catholic Church that is against the suffering of Terri Schiavo, the same Catholic Church that would let people suffer from AIDS, rather than promote the use of condoms? (They prefer to pray, rather than dole out some Trojans, so why not simply pray for Schiavo?)

This is the same Catholic Church that seems to be a finishing school for paedophiles.

And all I ask is one thing - Shut Your Piehole! Damn, I'm generous.

The Rest of the World, remember it?

While the American mainstream media fixates on someone without a cerebral cortex, whose only contribution to humanity right now is a full bedpan twice a day, why not have a think about some of the other people being starved to death (no, I don't think Terri Schiavo is being starved to death, but I'm running with the insane logic here)

Look at Zimbabwe, where,

"Four million people are starving in Zimbabwe, a quarter of the population, and thousands of Robert Mugabe's political opponents are being turned away empty-handed from emergency food stations, The Independent can reveal." (link)

Extreme Unction is now off to the far side of the Galaxy, anyplace I can escape from the simple-minded rubbish that turns this beautiful world into such a miserable place to be.

not knowing much about the case in question, but having done some reading, i can safely throw up my hands and say "Americans!" sorry if you take that as an insult. also thank you for mentioning zimbabwe... where i am from, and indeed where many people are starving to death, and where i have watched many other people dying from AIDS, in fact one good friend died today, which my mother told me about in an email. the people in this world should have better things to worry about... but they dont. and such is human nature and this is why i dont like humans.

i would not say "Americans!" like that. most Americans, on the polls that are being taken and the things you hear people say, are tended towards the view that this situation should not have been blown up into a huge media and political event, and that the law should be allowed to prevail.

the people who are standing outside the hospice protesting and singing and praying and hollering on their blogs, yes, those particular Americans are some of the most skewed things currently walking on two legs.

these people are the reason we need birth control in the first place... harsh (I know) but also true.
