Belgian priest suggests ‘celebration’ when Catholics die from euthanasia

August 31, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – A Belgian priest, Fr. Gabriel Ringlet, has suggested that a “celebration” should mark the moment of death for Roman catholics who choose euthanasia.

He also promotes the “spiritual accompaniment” of such Catholics in such glowing terms that they read like support for euthanasia itself. While Fr Ringlet says he does not aim to justify “mercy killing,” his approach is a boon to euthanasia proponents.

    • When a society grows affluent, too many small minds have too much time on their hands.

      Too many of these small minds make asinine choices.

      The fish rots from the head down.

      Enjoy what’s left. Without electroshock therapy, we are being controlled by too many small minds.

      If inanimate, Belgians are often chocolate-covered and quite delicious. Then there’s the human variety………….

        I tried looking it up in a history book and encyclopedia. Couldn’t find anything.

    Wow. A new religious way to celebrate death. Unfortunately for this priest, Islam cornered the market on celebrating death over a thousand years ago. Newbies at celebrating death like this RC priest should consider converting to Islam and start celebrating with the seasoned pros.

    Let him be the first to experience this so-called celebration.

    Of course it’s cause for celebration: fewer non-muslim mouths to feed and the freed up resources can be put to good use as welfare payments so healthy, young muslims to live comfortably, as they deserve, off the filthy infidels. (/sarc)

      Eventually, though, there will be too few non-Muslims to make the payments, so the Muslims will actually have to work to support themselves.

    Now all that they have to do is to get past that “voluntary” impediment.

    It looks like Europe is ripe for ISIS conquest.

    It’s against what I was taught as a Christian — life is a gift, don’t commit suicide.
