Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

Compassionate conservative?

Here’s an interesting AP report on Judge Greer, the Florida judge who handled Terri Schiavo’s case for years. He is a "man who friends describe as conservative, religious and particularly sensitive to protecting the disabled." Greer is a legally blind, moderate Republican, and "a member of a conservative Baptist church which recently advocated keeping Terri Schiavo alive in a church newsletter."

Quite frankly, I never saw the judge as the problem in Terri’s case. The real problem seemed to be Florida law and a husband with conflicting interests, which the state’s legislature may or may not have remedied. In any event, I am dismayed that those looking to save Terri’s life have stooped to threatening the life of the judge.
