In the decades leading up to one of the most horrific chapters in human history, the leading lights of the day openly discussed bringing about those horrors. Eugenics was posited as the rational position of all intelligent, well-meaning individuals. In journals, newspapers, academic conferences, public health offices and elsewhere, they talked about sterilizing people with or without their consent, segregating them from society, or even exterminating them. And that was in America.

So, Jesus–and Christians believe Jesus is God–goes all the way back to Genesis to state the original plan, and dispenses with any attempt to erect this caveat or that excuse. The plan was good when the world was perfect and unfallen, it was good while God lived with the Jews when they were a covenant nation, it was good after the covenant had been dissolved and the Jews were dispersed to the four winds, it was good when they were brought back together and God again walked among them.

The recent turn of events in the Middle East has me thinking that we may be seeing the Obama term complete it’s mimicry of Carter’s presidency. The Iranian hostage crisis fleshed out the numerous ways in which Carter was deficient. It was all part of a package, you see; the floundering economy, the diminished standing […]

An article I read today announces that they have found a way to test for 3,500 genetic faults, raising concerns (the article says) about the ethical implications. The story veers headlong into a sustained bout of research that I am currently engaged in, research that began by wanting to answer the basic question “how does […]

I recently came across an article talking about how the South Koreans have intercepted capsules filled with ground up aborted fetuses (some of us prefer the more archaic term, ‘babies,’ but I don’t want to be accused of emotionalizing the topic) en route from China to Japan, where, we are told, it is believed that […]
After-birth abortion: why should the baby live? Or, What is the proper response to killing newborn children because they are a burden to a family… or society?

authors Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva argue that the same arguments that justify abortion of the fetus on demand likewise apply to the newly born. Here is the abstract:
Abortion is largely accepted even for reasons that do not have anything to do with the fetus’ health. By showing that (1) both fetuses and newborns do not have the same moral status as actual persons, (2) the fact that both are potential persons is morally irrelevant and (3) adoption is not always in the best interest of actual people, the authors argue that what we call ‘after-birth abortion’ (killing a newborn) should be permissible in all the cases where abortion is, including cases where the newborn is not disabled.

Psalm 22 and the Cross
Or, One Reason So Many of the First Christians were Jews
Anyone who has ever had the opportunity to study the Jewish people prior to 100 AD will instantly recognize what rascals they were to anyone who came in contact with them. This, indeed, is the story of the Jews right back to their exodus from Egypt. And why shouldn’t they be precocious? Of all nations, God had chosen them to have a special relationship with.
