“Was John Paul II Euthanized?” – TIME Distorts Catholic Teaching to Give Credence to Outlandish Accusations
“Was John Paul II Euthanized?” The sensationalist story peddled by TIME magazine has grabbed the world’s attention with the thought that the great champion of human life, the author of “Evangelium Vitae,” and steadfast opponent of abortion and euthanasia, may have rejected his Church’s teachings to end his life. However TIME’s story warps Catholic teachings in order to make the flimsy accusations of an Italian medical professor (with an axe to grind against the Vatican) look credible at the same time the Vatican has stated food and fluids are morally obligatory medical care (see this).
Most secular magazines like Time know so little about the Catholic faith they have to invent ridiculous stories like this to sell magazines. Just look at how they misinterpreted and wrote that disgusting story about Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta. They don’t have a clue as to what the Catholic faith is all about.
