GOP Senator's Aide Characterizes Schiavo Supporters as "Christian Extremists"

LEADER EXCLUSIVE: Schiavo supporters are "Christian extremists" so says GOP State Senator's Legislative Aide (The Illinois Leader): "MCHENRY - Tina Hill , legislative aide to State Senator Pam Althoff (R-McHenry) and a GOP McHenry County Board member, apparently believes that characterizing supporters of keeping Terri Schiavo alive are 'Christian extremists' who represent the 'Christian Taliban wing' of the Republican party"

Nice to find someone else who agrees with the absurdity of conservative Christians crusade on this case. I want to highlight two points in particular:
  1. Countless ethnically diverse Americans die every day due to poor health care, and nobody in the GOP pays them any attention.
  2. Since she was not a religious person, it is hard to imagine that Mrs. Schiavo would feel anything but contempt for these Christians' efforts to use her for their political benefit.
