Marvin Olasky’s theological solution to Australian amoralist Peter Singer:

We shouldn’t run or hide from Peter Singer. We should pray for him.

    1. I’m appalled at the thought of terminating children with physical or mental problems. However euthanasia of the elderly demented is an interesting area for debate. Should people be given the option of giving prior consent to euthanasia if they reach a specified stage of mental/physical degeneration? Not for resus orders exist but usually only for people suffering the end stages of terminal diseases like cancer. Or if not euthanasia then refusal of medical treatment such as cardiac, respiratory medications. Bracks has been trying to get this debate started in regards to premature neonates. The reason being that our paediatric intensive care is so good now that they can sometimes sustain a newborn as young as 20 weeks gestation but their mental/physical outlook is bleak. Just because we can sustain a life doesn’t mean we always should.
      Any thoughts?

    1. correction/ ‘Warning Will Robinson’/ Just for the record – I’m against the killing of innocent people. Just because we can kill someone doesnt mean that we should.

    1. That includes Peter Singer, Deo, even if he is guilty of being amoral and stupid.

    1. Marvin is right.  Though it might F**k with your head, remember that God loves Phillip Adams, Paul McGeough, Dick Durbin, (your name here).  I know, I know…

    1. I’m wondering if the organs of the very elderly, when the elderly expire, might be donated to help sick animals, say as part of a cow rescue program.

    1. Singer is not amoral. He has been a tireless campaigner to extend moral rights enjoyed by the Alpha-males to minorities of all races, genders and species. This is the legitimate role of the Left.

      His moral philosophy places some (sentient) non-human animals in a more valuable status than some (non-sentient) human animals, a hierarchy implicitly accepted by all those who condone abortion but would object to someone eating their dog. Although there aresome who would disagree.

      I must say that the thought experiments he uses to rationally justify this are wrong-headed and a little weird.

    1. Interesting… well I reckon those minorities of all races and genders are welcome to f#$k dogs all they want. Have at it! I’ll pass thanks Peter…
