Felos, hospice and euthanasia

The mainstream media has made a big deal of the religious nature of much of the opposition to the torture and murder of Terri Schiavo. For some reason though, the MSM hasn't seen fit to mention the occultic beliefs that motivate Michael Schiavo's lawyer, George Felos, to volunteer as a hospice worker and "right to die" activist attorney.

Speaking of hospice, my wife's parents are both receiving great care from hospice workers, who treat them with dignity as cancer takes its toll on both of them. But not all hospices are the same. My wife's uncle was on hospice a few years back, and the family discovered that this hospice's approach to relieving pain is the same as that of Mr. Felos: starve the patient. They did not disclose this to the uncle or the immediate family, and were discovered only when they had nearly killed him.

Is there a widespread occult connection? Let's not fall into Salem witch-burning mode, but something is clearly motivating many people to seek to end the lives of others even against their will these days. There is a culture of death on the march. It needs to be scrutinized most carefully.

A couple of days ago, Wretchard said this:

MSNBC has come straight out and called the Terri Schiavo case the latest battleground in the culture wars... [T]he Schiavo story... was a match dropped on dry tinder. ...When something comes so abruptly out of blue it is usually a sign of cumulative stresses, long ignored, reaching a tipping point; it is a possible indicator of broken symmetry.

Read the whole post as well as this preceding post to get a better idea of the point Wretchard was making.

But the "culture wars" are between those who hold to a historic Judeo-Christian world view and... who? Secularists? Some are, no doubt. But Felos is no secularist; he is an occultist.
