Disregard That Last Will

According to the Pope's Last Will and Testament:

Regarding the funeral, I repeat the same disposition given by the Holy Father Paul VI: Burial in the bare earth, not in a tomb,

So what do they do with the body? Put it in a tomb!

The place chosen for John Paul II was previously used for Pope John XXIII, one of the Church's best-loved pontiffs.

The Polish Pope will lie close to the tombs of his two immediate predecessors, John Paul I and Paul VI, who both died in 1978.

And an 81 year old grandmother has her feeding tube pulled (yes, like Terry Shiavo - you saw this coming didn't you?) against her living will:

In her living will, Magouirk stated that fluids and nourishment were to be withheld only if she were either comatose or "vegetative," and she is neither. Nor is she terminally ill, which is generally a requirement for admission to a hospice.

What is the point of a will, living or otherwise, if someone else will make the decision anyway?

"Grandmama is old and I think it is time she went home to Jesus," Gaddy told Magouirk's brother and nephew, McLeod and Ken Mullinax. "She has glaucoma and now this heart problem, and who would want to live with disabilities like these?"

Heck, why not just kill everyone over 50. Once you reach 50, that's it. Society can grind you up and feed you to the poor - soylent green.
