See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

Alrighty then!


Princeton Professor Peter Singer.

Every Sunday I see this lovely family ahead of me at Mass. The father holds one child throughout Mass and takes her to Communion with him and the priest gives her a blessing. She is so cute and sweet. I don't know if she has Downs-syndrome, or what, but she is disabled. For me she is an angel and I love looking at her. I have a fondness for disabled children and adults. I see such a purity in them - there is something about them that moves me to compunction - it is not pity for them however. I see something so valuable in them and a sign from God for all of us who do not have obvious disabilities. Their being invites us to a participation in the virtue of charity - the very life of God. The little girl I see is so fortunate to be loved the way she is - her family loves her and it is so obvious she is an important and active member of that family. It fills me with joy, for she is blessed.

Today on Lifesite News I came across this monstrous man. He advocates killing disabled children, at least he is honest in so far as he states there is no difference from killing an unborn foetus as opposed to killing an infant. How can a spokesman for the culture of death be so straightforward in such a belief? Because abortion is legal. The Nazis were pretty straightforwrd about this stuff too. Here is a snippet from the article:

Princeton Professor Singer: "And I repeat, I would kill Disabled Infants"

PRINCETON, September 12, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In a question and answer article published in the UK's Independent today, controversial Princeton University Professor Peter Singer repeats his notorious stand on the killing of disabled newborns. Asked, "Would you kill a disabled baby?", Singer responded, "Yes, if that was in the best interests of the baby and of the family as a whole."

People who oppose Singer's position have maintained that Singer is the logical extension of the culture of death and that society will eventually embrace his stance if there is no shift to the culture of life. Alex Schadenberg, Executive Director of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition commented to LifeSiteNews.com about Singer saying, "at least he's consistent." In fact, Singer himself uses the abortion debate to justify his murderous stance.

"Many people find this shocking," continued Singer, "yet they support a woman's right to have an abortion." Concluding his point, Singer said, "One point on which I agree with opponents of abortion is that, from the point of view of ethics rather than the law, there is no sharp distinction between the foetus and the newborn baby."

Singer's position, similar to the culture of death, is that there is no inherent dignity in man, there is no sanctity of human life. Man deserves no special treatment since, Singer rejects that man was created in the image and likeness of God. [snip] Lifesite News

I believe this guy teaches ethics. Scary, huh? The Netherlands already allows infanticide, it may well happen here.

  1. My question for Singer would be to ask him whether he personally would be willing to cut the throat of those he selects for death?

    Or does he want someone else to do it for him?


    I have grown to love seeing children of all ages and sizes at Mass, squirmy, fidgety, colicky or whatever variety you have. I see them as hope for the future of the Church.

    My generation hasn't done so well. I am confident that these little ones, will do better. And I pray for them when I see them.

  2. Thanks Ray. I too appreciate the kids at Mass - I never mind if they are rambunctious or anything - I'm always happy to see them.
    Maybe because we are getting old and we are single. But I love them.

  3. I cannot help but wonder what this man's background is. Was he ever exposed to the beauty, the truth, and the goodness of God? Was he taught to pray as a little boy? Behind his intellectual smirk there is, I am sure, a man who is profoundly unhappy, a restless heart, a wounded little boy. Sweet Mother of God, Mother of Sorrows, you who mourned the death of the Holy Innocents, we entrust him to you.

  4. The only good that can come from this quack is if he makes the abortion rights movement wake up and realize that abortion leads to a lot of other "justified" killing.

    I'm horrified that this nutcase is a prof. Some universities will hire anybody who can open their mouth and bring publicity-here's proof.

  5. May God help him & all the other "open-minded" liberals that promote the culture of death.

    It is unbelievable how many people believe that this is mercy!

    It's another prayer need to the Holy Spirit- that they open their eyes!

    Mr.Singer has issues but he at least is intellectually honest. He simply believes that "living" is defined by sense experience and memory. If one cannot sense or remember..ergo "live" in his mind..why not be dead?

    It's sad. However I'd like to point out that he makes a strong argument against the factory farming of animals and cruelty and this should not be overlooked because of his stance on human life.

    Just my thoughts.

  7. I often see the same family at Mass and am awestruck..I have read some of Peter Singers stuff--awful. Interesting that some of my pro-"choice" friends distance themselves from Singer's opinions and cannot see the illogic in their arguments.
