Christian Organizations to Hold Prayer Vigils & Rallies at U.S. Supreme Court Before Oral Arguments are Heard on Two Historic Ten Commandments Cases

On March 2nd, the Supreme Court will hear cases from Texas and Kentucky that will determine if the public display of the Ten Commandments is constitutional.

WASHINGTON, March 1 /Christian Wire Service/ --Here is a schedule of events:

  • Prayer vigil at the Supreme Court on Tuesday, March 1st, at 7:30 p.m.;
  • March to the Supreme Court from Imani Temple on Tuesday, March 1st, at 9:00 p.m.;
  • News conference at the Supreme Court on Wednesday, March 2nd, at 9:00 a.m.;
  • Prayer at U.S. Supreme Court from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on March 2nd.

Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, states, "It is our hope and prayer that the Justices of the Supreme Court will honor and respect the principles of the First Amendment and our Founding Fathers and allow the public display of the Ten Commandments. The values embraced in the Decalogue have been the foundation of American jurisprudence for two centuries and have untied citizens of all faiths, traditions and believes. If the First Amendment was crushed in these cases, the United States government would have to sandblast thousands of Ten Commandments displays from public buildings...including the Supreme Court itself."

Judge Greer Obstructing Justice; Terri Schiavo and Her Family Flagrantly Denied Due Process by Probate Judge

CLEARWATER, Fl., March 1 /Christian Wire Service/ -- On February 28, 2005, the parents of Terri Schiavo were informed, through their Attorney David Gibbs, III that Judge George Greer of Pinellas-Pasco's Sixth Judicial Circuit has denied, without access to hearing, motions filed by Terri Schiavo's immediate family for:

  • Updated neurological evaluations based on new MRI testing protocols;
  • A motion to compel the deposition of Michael Schiavo
  • A petition for extraordinary authority to provide Terri Schiavo with updated rehabilitative protocols;
  • A petition for divorce, citing open adultery on the part of Terri Schiavo's husband and guardian;
  • An objection to the guardian's annual guardianship plan;
  • A motion to remove Michael Schiavo as guardian, citing his failure to comply with Florida Law mandated guardianship requirements. This motion dates back to November of 2002, but the court has never ruled on it.

Judge Greer has stated that he will only consider motions from Terri's family as they relate to the death process, which include but are not limited to a motion to allow Terri Schiavo to die at home instead of a Hospice facility, a motion for a Florida burial, and a motion allowing her immediate family uninterrupted access to her throughout the death process.

The Terri Schindler-Schiavo Foundation finds the actions of Judge Greer reprehensible and a clear denial of the due process rights afforded to Terri Schiavo under Federal and Florida law.

With new medical diagnosis protocols and new levels of rehabilitation protocols, Terri Schiavo's adjudicated condition of 'persistent vegetative state' is no longer equitable and any responsible jurist would eagerly recognize and accommodate more thorough means of determining the disabled woman's true condition ­ a condition that remains in great dispute.

Additionally, the Foundation finds the behavior of Judge Greer an absolute obstruction of due process for Terri Schiavo by his refusal to hold the guardian accountable for violation of Florida's guardian laws. The guardian has spent Terri Schiavo's medical fund on representing his own legal interests, has denied her necessary medical services, lives in open adultery with his girlfriend and their two children, has petitioned the courts to cremate Terri immediately upon her death and has repeatedly and flagrantly failed to comply with Florida Statutes that mandate the terms of guardianship. Judge Greer couldn't be bothered with those details so long as Terri Schiavo's death is a guaranteed outcome.

Statement of Pamela Hennessy, Media Representative of the Terri Schindler-Schiavo Foundation: Never in my life have I seen a judge so afraid of the truth. Why is it that admitted criminals are protected to every reasonable measure of law, but our disabled and vulnerable citizens are discarded by the courts as unworthy lives?

PLEASE JOIN US IN PREVAILING PRAYER:

  • Supreme Judge of the Universe, let JUSTICE run down like water and RIGHTEOUSNESS like a mighty stream.
  • Cause the U.S. Supreme Court Justices to rule rightly concerning the public display of Your Commandments. Move upon Judge Greer to let Terri live. In the Name of Jesus, AMEN! (De 16:18; 32:14; 2 Chr 19:6; Is 1:17; 51:4; 56:1; Am 5:24; Mt 12:18)
