I Thirst....

On this Good Friday, it is written that when Jesus had been on the cross and near death he muttered, "I thirst". He was then given vinegar to drink on a sponge.

The comparison is uncanny. Terri Shiavo, now 8 days without food and water could be possibly saying even now, “I thirst”. Yet no one under penalty of arrest – not even a child – can give her even sponge of vinegar to drink.

Over at Polipundit it would seem I’m not the only one who sees the irony.
