Skip to comments.Quiet judge persists in Schiavo maelstrom

And Greer, vilified by many religious protesters, is a church regular. He also is a conservative Republican in a state whose conservative Republican governor tried to overturn one of Greer's orders.
"George is the religious right," said lawyer David Kurland, a longtime friend.
Friends say Greer's intellect is perfectly formed to withstand the very tempest he now faces. Always calm, not prone to mood swings or flares of temper, unerringly polite, he is not easily ruffled, they say.
But the criticisms sting, friends say. His relationship with his church, for example, has changed.
"He's been through a lot of storms in his life," said Mary Repper, a political consultant and friend. "This is just another one. George takes everything in stride."
typical psycho spin from Pravda west.
sounds like the perfect sort character to murder someone by decrees. calmly and resolutely.

As it should IMO. I would not trust this man to be a 'man of God'. I would not forbid him from church, but I would have nothing to say to him. Ever.
YOU LOOK AT HIS ACTIONS, NOT HIS 'CLAIMED' TITLES (conservative, monk, republican, blah, blah, blah).
IF Greer is a registered Republican, the Republican Party of Florida ought to eject him forthwith. He is no Republican. He is a murderous judicial tyrant out of control, who has placed himself above the law he is sworn to uphold.
Don't be surprised if the Lord God Almighty strikes this evil man down at a time when nobody expects it.
Greer is not God. He will learn that soon enough.
If true, it's a quiet reminder that, although forgiven, Christians are still sinners and still subject to errors of judgement, action, omission, etc. And, if true, I hope that Judge Greer has spent a lot of time on his knees before God. More importantly, I hope he's receptive to a response.
He is also a murderer, if she dies.
Who will prosecute him?
Greer urinates on the law, the Costitution of the State of Florida, the United States Constitution, and basic human morality. Not satisfied with this he just also defecated on Congressional supoenas.
Does anyone have a list of his other rulings in the past?
O.K we should shut up now! (end of sarcasm).
Sadly, there are o winners, only losers in this situation. How about praying that she will start swallowing on her own and can be given nourishment that way?
"George is the religious right," said lawyer David Kurland, a longtime friend
Yes, that's why he got the boot from his church.
It is ok to legialate from the bench from a Judge's prespective right up until it comes to protecting life, which they consistantly legislate to end. Regardless if it is abortion or feeding tubes, it seems that Judges are into killing.
Time for term limits for Judges. This one certainly has to go.
It'd be nice if he would consider all the relevant facts - not just the ones he is interested in. Also, putting at naught a congressional subpoena is not exactly good form either. I hope he gets impeached for that last one alone.
And greer sides with the ACLU.....that says it all.
He IS NOT on the religious right!!!!!!!!!!! What ever gave that conclusion after this perverted ruling ??.
The imperial judiciary is very powerful in this country, and it will be the demise of this country in the end.
Interesting response. If you asked a 1,000 people if they thought they were going to heaven, I wonder how many would say a) I don't know, b) I hope so, or c) yes.
This is the evil to come folks. Bred right from the annals of the democrat death culture.
My guess is that it's all a matter of ego now.
She can swallow. Michael doesn't want5 her fed by mouth because she might choke. Isn't that compassionate of him?
If the state and federal government have the guts to make an example out of Greer, I'd say that it would be a nice start toward puttting a nice damper on Judicial Activism.
Greer is not "right" - religious or otherwise. What BS.
I would not want his karma. I only hope I'm in some kind of position to see him get his. Same for Schiavo and his shyster lawyer.
Speaking of which, slimeball Felos is on all the cable news channels right now. He looks like Chevy Chase in the "vacation" movies.
I had never heard that she was able to swallow. Why do her parents not go ahead and feed her then? Surely there is nothing to restrain them, even if they have to take food and water with them.
From all I have read and heard, her parents are not permitted in the room unless her "husband" says they are allowed!
I hear and read this sort of garbage all the time, especially from the left-wing media. You can label anyone anything you want for your own purposes. But just saying it means nothing. The judge's actions show exactly what he is.
And his former pastor has spoken out against him and this decision....
Say no more!
The parents have NO unsupervised visits with her and they probably won't be allowed in now at all. That's what happened last time the tube was removed. Until it was ordered reinstated they were kept away.
The attorney was just on TV saying that they were allowed to come anytime they want to.
as I understand it, skeev-o is stopping the parents from even seeing her regularly
The best people live by these concepts: God, family and country.
Greer has quit his church, divorced his wife and defied Congress.
Nice legacy, eh?
She swallows just as much saliva as you do on a daily basis. There is no vacuum hose in her mouth nor does she drool. What does that tell you?
Why do her parents not go ahead and feed her then?
Becuase her rat bastard husband won't let them.
attorney is a LIAR
It's hard to tell whose lying now.
I hope he burns in hell, right next to that scum of a "husband". As an alleged Christian, he'll appreciate that.
Funny that you mention that, I was talking about heaven with someone and I told them if I went to heaven I would be happy being with God and all the Saints and if I went down below I would be so busy talking to all my friends I would still be happy. (must be the Irish in me)
it might well be hard to tell who's lying, but the POS husband has much more motive to keep her parents and siblings away than they have to lie about it. And the actions of the unholy 3 - Schavo, Felos, Greer - are quite apparent for their agenda. IMO
That was always the case and why the feeding tube should've been left right where it was :(
There are so many people that profess to be Christians however, their actions speak louder than words and though we are not supposed to judge others, God gives Christians the gift of discernment so that we can see through these "false" Christians. There are many out there and the true Christians would not condone this outrageousness. If the Lord wanted Terri to die, he would have taken her a long time ago in His own way. They have no right to assume the role of Creator, and they will pay for this in the end.
FGS, the entire world is looking at that Hospice; don't you think the press will notice if they can't get in?
At least TRY to be rational.
Her "caretakers" and the judge will not permit it. Only her death is acceptable. I will not be surprised if she dies of a "stroke" or "heart failure" tonight.
There's dirt on both sides' hands, IMO.
Has Terry Sciavo ever had a guardian appointed?
