Life and Death

No communionDeathScanning through various sites, I ran into two polar articles. First, a church stands for life:

"No communion for Nancy Pelosi: Vatican court head"

Second, a country stands for death:

"Number of Dutch killed by euthanasia rises by 13 per cent"

I disagree with the Catholic Church in major doctrinal ways, but kudos to them for consistency (and recognizing nominal believers shouldn't be treated as believers):

The cardinal also said that Mrs. Pelosi is a perfect example of Catholics who separate their faith from day-to-day living.

"This is a prime example of what Blessed John Paul II referred to as the situation of Catholics who have divorced their faith from their public life and therefore are not serving their brothers and sisters in the way that they must — in safeguarding and promoting the life of the innocent and defenseless unborn, in safeguarding and promoting the integrity of marriage and the family," he said.

As for the Netherlands…they should hang your head in shame:

One explanation for the steep rise of Dutch cases is the introduction last year of mobile euthanasia units allowing patients to be killed by volunatry lethal injection when family doctors refused.

Mobile euthanasia units. 🙁

4,188 people who, for all intents and purposes, were encouraged by the government to kill themselves.
