More on the Schiavo case
I do find it curious that religious lobbying groups have taken the Terry Schiavo case as their cause. I'm not religious, so I'm agnostic, so to speak, on how religions define themselves, but it does seem odd that certain religious groups are taking the side of extraordinary medical interventions that prolong life, perhaps beyond the point where the life is meaningful. I would think this would be the more likely viewpoint of non-religious folks, who view life as being synapses connected, not religious believers who promote the concept of life being more than the physical, that it involves a spiritual dimension, a soul.
