Former Missouri Senator Tom Eagleton just died this week. He had been in failing health for some time now. He is nationally known for being the former running mate of George Mc Govern, who had to step down because he had suffered from depression and had ECT therapy earlier in his career. Too bad. He was a very caring and effective politician.
However, I feel uneasy with the lionizing of this man. Everyone who has a loved one of course wishes them the gifts of heavenly rest. I am sure that this mans family wishes the same for him. My wifes dad just died and we all feel that way.
But Mr. Eagleton, for all the good he did, carried the torch for abortion on demand, partial-birth abortion and embryonic stem cell research all during his public career.
Heaven?....who am I to say.
