Michael Schiavo Interview

Via Prolife Blogs, I've read a partial transcript of Matt Lauer interview with Michael Schiavo and his wife Jodi. An excerpt:
On his marriage to Jodi
Lauer: People have often asked. Michael why didn't you divorce Terri, you were living with Jodi.

Michael Schiavo: Why do I have to divorce Terri? Terri wasn't like a football— an inanimate object you pass back and forth. She was my wife. You mean because your wife gets sick, do you give her back?

Jodi Schiavo: I would think so much less of Michael had he walked away from her. That is one of the qualities in him that I so admire. That up against everything...he stuck by her...

Why do I have to divorce Terri? How about the fact that you're living with another woman and fathering her children? If your wife gets sick, do you dehydrate her to death? "Giving her back" to her family is probably preferable to dehydrating her, no?

He stuck by her? How's that? By living with you, fathering children with you and trying to dehydrate Terri to death? Wouldn't all wives like a husband that sticks by them like that?


  1. I'd hope that a husband who wanted me dead would "give me back" to family that loved me and wanted me to live.

  2. It was about control. She was his possession- MINE, MINE, MINE.

    And she was also evidence of his crimes against her, but that's another issue.

    He needs to repent, lest he spend eternity is a facet of Hell that I can't even imagine.

    What do you think God will ask/say/judge of the husband when he dies?

    A slap on the back, and the compliment, "Gee. Dood one! That really helped to implement 'on earth as it is in heaven'"??!!! Hardly!

    Matthew 7:21-23 not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father, which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."

    The Boss will understand him perfectly. Every last lie. Every last killing action. And judge him accordingly.

  4. Jivin,

    I noticed that you linked to my blog, Stingray, and wanted to reciprocate. I couldn't find a way to mail you directly from your blog so I'm just letting you know from this comment.
