Crossed The Tiber

An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

Location: Pennsylvania, United States

I was born into the Catholic faith. At 14, I was "born again" and found Jesus personally but lost His Church. After thirty years as an evangelical protestant, I have come full circle to find that He has been there all the time, in the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I wish others to find the beauty and truth of the Catholic faith as I have found.

Obamacare and the Push for Euthanasia

With Obamacare on the horizon, you are going to start to see more and more supportive articles about euthanasia and assisted suicide and the horrendous cost burden that the frail elderly place on the medicare budget in the last 6 months of life. There will be a subtle push from the media to start seeing that it is only "fair" to let the sick and elderly "step out of the way" so as not to be a burden to the system. But, the answer to the financial problems incurred by universal health coverage should not be found in killing humans. Read this article about how great Assisted Suicide is in the state of Oregon. "We won't pay for your chemo, but we will cover the cost of your suicide prescription, no problem."

"If people contemplate and really see the sanctity of life, their
"quality of life" arguments fall away and they will understand that we
are here to care for each other, not to kill each other. Caring, and not
convenience, is the sign of a civilized and just society!"(Ron Panzer-Hospice Alliance)
