Authorities said Richard Alan Meywes of Fairview, North Carolina, offered $250,000 for the killing of Michael Schiavo and another $50,000 for the death of Circuit Court Judge George Greer, who ordered Schiavo's feeding tube removed a week ago.

And I thought the right was all about the sanctity to life and how letting Terri Schiavo die in peace was against God's will and all that crap. Apparently God doesn't have a problem with death if you disagree with him or his maniacal hoards.

Greer, a Pinellas County circuit judge, has been under the protection of two U.S. marshals at all times in recent weeks due to increased threats against his life by those unhappy with his handling of the Schiavo case.

This is the same sort of religious extremism we're trying to defeat in Iraq. It's terrorism. Right here at home. And it isn't rooted in militant Islam. It's mainstream Christianity. It's George Bush's politcal base.
