because he has another relationship, he cannot still love Terri and therefore is not capable of making a decision in her best interest.

Let us not forget that the reason Mr. Schiavo has this other relationship in the first place is because Terri's parents told him to do so.

They now seem to be upset that he did what they told him to do on that one score but isn't willing to do what they're telling him to do on this other one.

Moving on, but not away
More likely than not, it is because they agree that you can find love a second time without violating the love you can still hold for those that have passed on.

I am very sure that this can be the case.

Where do you draw the line?
...And to all the people that have suggested that Teri should have been kept alive because she wouldn't "know" the difference anyway... I am wondering where you would draw the line... If a Jewish person is in a coma, can we baptize them against their wishes? They won't know... What could we do to comatose person hat you would find over the line?

Re: Moving on, but not away
the person you love doesn't have to be dead for you to find another love.

this too happens all the time.

Mormons do something close to this.

mormons baptize the dead

Re: Where do you draw the line?
I just heard an update about this on NPR. Apparently, like polygamy, the official church now disapproves of this, even if individual members still do it.

Me, I can't get past the holy underwear...

Yeah, well, just as the LDS leadership bowed to cultural pressure to allow black men to become full members of the church, they are bowing to cultural pressure to stop the practice of baptizing the dead.

You can bet that if nobody outside the LDS church ever complained, they would still be doing it.

I can't get past the creepy missionaries that prey on the lonely and unsure on college campuses.

There's a reason they don't hang out in the parking lots of other churches.
