Ah, the "culture of life" - Bobo would be so proud!

According to the aforementioned David Brooks, "The core belief that social conservatives bring to cases like Terri Schiavo's is that the value of each individual life is intrinsic."

As long as you don't piss them off (or disagree with them, or do anything they don't approve of 100%).
Consistency is overrated

Via Crooks and Liars we learn that the religious right has so much respect for life they're willing to kill to defend it:
[T]he FBI has arrested a North Carolina man who is offering money over the Internet for the murder of Michael Schiavo and the state judge in the case. Richard Allen Mewist (ph) of Fairview, North Carolina, allegedly offered $250,000 for the killing of Michael Schiavo and $50,000 for the death of circuit court Judge George Greer who ordered Schiavo's feeding tube removed and who continues to rule on the case…
I just don't understand where these people are coming from. Apparently they believe that the life of a brain-dead woman is worth more than the life of her very-much-alive husband. Time and time again they set themselves up as the ultimate arbiters of whose life is worth more. The life of a fetus is worth more than that of an abortion doctor. The life of an American child is worth more than that of an Iraqi child. They are willing to have people die to satisfy their desire to own guns or their wish for bloodthirsty revenge on convicted criminals. How did murder become the political tool of choice for a community that claims to value life above all else?
Will Mr. Brooks have the decency or intellectual honesty to condemn these terrorists?

I'm not holding my breath.
