Why Proportion and Perspective is Needed Regarding the Tiller Murder

Having issued a series of posts trying to establish some sense of proportion and perspective about the Tiller murder, the question has been raised as to why the emphasis.

I have my reasons.

We can go back to a post that I made not too long ago that suggested that a ‘right-wing extremist’ attack was not merely inevitable, but something that the current administration actually wants to happen.

Here is a little quote:

Here is what I think. I think that the recently admitted NSA over-collection of American domestic communications revealed that people- even decent people- are really, really, really, really, really, POed about the way things are and the way they are going. I think that material helped drive the DHS report, but I think the DHS was just looking for an excuse.

This report is likely to produce the very thing it is warning about. With this report, every conservative American became subject to the Thought Police and a target of scrutiny by the Federal government. I believe it will put some people over the edge. I believe the intent was to put them over the edge.

gun control needed to stem abortionist killings in churches

It has been noted that Dr. Tiller was gunned down in his church. It is a wonder that no one has proposed the obvious: more gun control is necessary. Allow me to be the first to call for it publicly.

The first thing we need to do is make it illegal to have guns in churches in Kansas.

Then we need to make it into a crime to single out abortionists for murder. We should tack it onto the Hate Crimes legislation coming down the pike. There is nothing worse than hate inspired murder.

After that, I think we should take the National Organization of Women’s statement today and run with it. They said: “Bringing the killers to justice is not enough – the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security must root out and prosecute as domestic terrorists and violent racketeers the criminal enterprise that has organized and funded criminal acts for decades.”

Yes, let’s root them out.

Eugenics the Logical Consequence of Evolutionary Theory Part One

So, if it is the case that eugenics is not a logical consequence to evolutionary theory, by all means, we should wonder how it came to be so strongly associated in the first place. It isn’t enough to righteously deny a connection. For decades the most learned people on the planet believed there was.

To help promote such an investigation, I submit for your reading the positions of a certain Jacob Appel, a modern evolutionary bio-ethicist in support of eugenics, and a book called Applied Eugenics by Paul Popenoe,writing in 1918. Skip to around chapters 7 and 8 and see if you can spot the similarities between Popenoe’s arguments and Appel’s. (Earlier in, Popenoe credits the Germans for their innovation…)

For example, there is this juicy bit: “The science of eugenics is the natural result of the spread and acceptance of organic evolution, following the publication of Darwin’s work on The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, in 1859.” Page 148.

So, where did the world’s smartest men go wrong in the early part of the 20th century? And why do their arguments sound so similar to what we hear coming out of today’s politicians urging us on to ‘make sacrifices’ ‘for the good of society’?

Russians Right that America Is Nearly Marxist?

I am linking to it because I think there is a fair bit of truth in it, actually. I doubt it will wake anyone up. While I know a great deal of people who are not happy with the current trends and are not the ‘sheeple’ referenced by the editorialist, I can think of a fair number who scoff at the notion that fascism or socialism could happen here… when in fact it isn’t a question of whether or not it could happen, it is happening.

By the time these scoffers wake up it will be too late. And then there are of course the scoffers who actually desire a Marxist state but prudence requires that they deny it every step of the way even as they work to make each of those steps a reality.

Here is the article. Enjoy.

Obama and the National Day of Prayer

Some Christians I’ve read have been disappointed by the fact that Obama didn’t do anything for the National Day of Prayer.  I don’t know why.  This is who Obama is.  He has given us no reason to think he is otherwise.  I’m glad that he didn’t continue the illusion in some minds (more accurately, self-delusion) […]

Government Uses ACORN to Track Your House with GPS

This is one of those times when you wonder if the mainstream media is worth even a lick. I learned on WND yesterday that for the 2010 census they’ll be getting the GPS coordinates for every residence in America. This process has apparently begun. It is difficult to conceive of legitimate uses for such a database and very easy to conceive of abusive ones.

Worrisome point one: The Obama Administration has moved to take direct oversight in the census this time around.

Worrisome point two: The census will make no distinction between legal and illegal immigrants. Funding and districting could be skewed.

Worrisome point three: Acorn has been contracted out to help with the 2010 census.

Three Upcoming Book Reviews and one Released

I have three books sent to me due for reading and reviewing. It is going to be a week or possibly longer to get to one or all of them so I wanted to throw up a little blurb to each in the meantime.

Finally, Athanatos Publishing Group (an extension of the ministry of this site) released yesterday a book related to the Holocaust: Hitler, the Holocaust, and the Bible: A Scriptural Analysis of Anti-Semitism, National Socialism, and the Churches. My review of this book is available here.
