Clinton to Receive Planned Parenthood’s Highest Award, named after eugenicist Margaret Sanger. What a vile award. It speaks volumes that Clinton would be a recipient. PP tries to downplay Sanger’s eugenics work as if it was just some quirky trait, but it was foundational to her philosophy. Among other things, she would bribe black ministers so they would encourage their congregations to be sterilized.
eugenics [(yooh-jen-iks)] – The idea that one can improve the human race by careful selection of those who mate and produce offspring.
Enjoy your award, Hillary. Sanger would be proud that you aggressively support abortion policies that eliminate blacks at three times the rate of whites.
The Right to Bear Arms: Successes of the Week — Yea for well armed citizens and concealed weapons permits! If only the media would trumpet these successes then perhaps more bad guys would consider another line of work — or at least a less violent form of theft, such as politics. Criminals understand odds better than you think.
Rights, Religion, and the Soul of the Nation — Timely piece on a foundational issue with socialism and communism. Polls show that “70% of mainline clergy believe the government should play a more active role in solving social problems and 90% of UCC clergy support more active government intervention in social issues,” and some “Christian” pastors (the fake kind) think that is something to be proud of. But the consequences of government attempting to provide everything are horrific. They fail miserably and leave drastic unintended consequences in their wake.
The idea that everyone has a right to everything and that it will all be provided by an omniscient and presumably beneficent government is a seductive one. Justice is, after all, a Christian virtue. In reality, however, a world of rights and distributive justice is dry, heartless, and dehumanizing. It is a world driven entirely by duty and, as such, it is a world that makes generosity and gratitude—two basic religious impulses—impossible. To use Martin Luther’s terms, it is a world of law with no room for grace. Where demands and duty rule the day, charity is superfluous. Schall writes:
“In a socialist world, no charity can exist because there can be no need that is unfulfilled by the commonality’s duty. It is a world in which there can be no gratitude. I can thank someone for giving me what is really his. I cannot thank him for giving me what is by rights already mine. “
The Devil is in the Details: Nightline Faceoff on Satan — a thorough and excellent piece on the televised debate on Satan’s existence between Mark Driscoll and Anne Lobert (pro) and Deepak Chopra and Charles Pearson (con).
