    If Euthanasia were legal why would you be euthanized?

    It is distinctly unchristian to end one‘s life voluntarily, even in extreme discomfort.

    In which we discuss the cultural acceptability of the South, re: Orthodoxy

    The Ludwell myth is one more typical Southron spinning of yarns to legitimize themselves (in their own minds at least) in terms they valorize, e.g., tradition, patrimony and heritage. It‘s fictive and rose-tinted, like the Lost Cause up there in the noösphere with Kosova Polye, The Last Tsar...
