Terri Schiavo's Death Sentence..and Scientology?

Here is a compelling and thought provoking page that explores a possible relationship between the insanity of the Schiavo situation and Scientology. Pinellas County is one of the main hotbeds for Scientology. The article makes the connection with Scientology and the key political players that hold those beliefs. Scientologists embrace a culture of death:

Of course death is not a big deal for Scientologists. It is called "dropping the body" and the body is regarded as a hindrance and a distraction. 4

Scientology founder, L. Ron Hubbard, believed that when a man dies it simply means that his thetan (spirit) separates from his body. The thetan then "picks up another body" and lives again. L. Ron Hubbard's belief in reincarnation—which George Felos shares—is the foundation for his frightening doctrines about death and the disabled.

George Felos, of course, is the attorney for Michael Schiavo.

This wouldn't be the first time the Scientologists would be involved in a case of torturing a disabled adult.
