Infamy: Loyola Law School to host Terri Schiavo judge
So why has Loyola Law School here in ole L.A. invited a lowly country circuit court judge to teach at its very first Journalist Law School, this June 15-17? The event is a seminar only for professional journalists with at least three years of working experience, and its intent is to instruct reporters who have no legal background in how to think of the judiciary and how to write about legal affairs. Many big-shot news venues are sending their reporters to the event.
LifeNews.com broke the story on May 15, saying that the Loyola Law School admits it has invited Piniellas County (Florida) circuit court judge George Greer to speak at its event. Is there ANY reason for anyone to invite this previously obscure Florida judge anywhere for anything, other than the notoriety he gained from successfully ordering Catholic wife Terri (nee Schindler) Schiavo cruelly dehydrated and starved to death last year?
Imagine the kind of instruction a judicial supremacist would give reporters: "The judiciary is all-powerful, so worship it and speak of it worshipfully. And for all legal cases involving abortion and euthanasia, the default legal disposition is death for the baby, the disabled, the elderly and the infirm, so redouble your efforts to write only pro-death propaganda-speak."
Loyola Law School has pulled this type of stunt in the past. In 1986, I believe it was, their commencement speaker was Supreme Court Justice William Brennan, a Catholic who was one of the 7 pro-abortion votes in Roe vs. Wade (1973) and wrote a concurring opinion for it. Pro-lifers recall that some people entering that event cursed priests and other protesters.
Wish we could expect Cardinal Mahony to protest this latest infamy.
