The Jaffe Memo and separation of church and state, part 9

This series is, believe it or not, winding down.

In part 8, I highlighted how some of the population control proposals of the 60s and 70s- as illustrated in the Jaffe memo- have been put forward, almost word for word, in our modern times, especially visible in the area of ‘climate change.’  Actually, these proposals go back into the 1800s, past Darwin, and come to rest more or less, as far as modern ‘population control’ thinking goes, on Thomas Malthus.   The proposals and the thinking has remained the same, only the pretext, justifications, and rationales have changed.

Under Malthus, it … continue reading...

The Jaffe Memo and the War Against Climate Change- Religion and Politics Continued – Part 8

This is part 8 of a series reacting to the contents of the Jaffe memo.  Readers who have been following along may want to refresh their memory and obviously new readers should read what has come before or, barring that, at the minimum find the Jaffe memo linked in part one and read it.

I want to begin this section quoting from a truly ghastly article by a columnist from Canada named Diane Francis, who advocated for a globally enforced one child policy:

A planetary law, such as China’s one-child policy, is the only way to reverse the disastrous

Jaffe Memo: Part 7, Religion, Politics, Scientism, Climate Change, and Secular Humanism

This series began as a reflection of the contents of the Jaffe Memo, a Planned Parenthood document from 1969 that discussed ideas for handling the ‘population’ crisis.  This memo succinctly lays bear an agenda that has been in play since before the Civil War, and as I have demonstrated in previous parts of this series (and elsewhere), is still very much with us today.  The problem, as I have argued, is that many issues that are in front of us today for consideration were actually put forward by the liberal progressives at the turn of the century, who hoped at … continue reading...

James Jay Lee’s Manifesto to Save the Planet

James Jay Lee originally posted this at www.savetheplanetprotest.com but it seems the site is down. I am posting it here in full for posterity’s sake.

The Discovery Channel MUST broadcast to the world their commitment to save the planet and to do the following IMMEDIATELY:
1. The Discovery Channel and it’s affiliate channels MUST have daily television programs at prime time slots based on Daniel Quinn’s “My Ishmael” pages 207-212 where solutions to save the planet would be done in the same way as the Industrial Revolution was done, by people building on each other’s inventive ideas. Focus must be

History of the Culture of Death

I delivered the following presentation at Concordia University at Seward, Nebraska, on Nov. 20th, 2010.  The event was hosted by Nebraska Lutherans for Life.  I explain what the ‘culture of death’ is and how it got here.  To invite me to present at your organization, you can get more information here.

The Culture of Death: Planned Parenthood, Eugenics, and… Climate Change? from Anthony Horvath on Vimeo.

Pro-life speaker Anthony Horvath recounts the history of the ‘Culture of Death’ from Thomas Malthus to Charles Darwin to Margaret Sanger to Peter Singer, with an array of personalities in between. Horvath … continue reading...

Planned Parenthood And Their Hypocritical Concern for Haiti

I suppose many readers have heard the outcry against Planned Parenthood soliciting donations to restore ‘family planning’ services in Haiti.  I’ll leave others to reflect on the weirdness of this.  I’d like to focus briefly on the hypocrisy of it, for, after all, given Planned Parenthood’s real goals, their only complaint about what happened in Haiti can only be that more people didn’t die.

I have discussed the malthusian nature of abortion proponents at length on this blog so I won’t rehash it.  Essentially the point is this:  if you really believe that over population is the worst crisis … continue reading...

Global Warming Fraud Uses Same Scientific Method as Evolution

The Internet is abuzz with the revelations that global warming proponents have been… lying, hiding data, and deceiving.  The whole notion that ‘climate change’ is an emergency requiring drastic and immediate action now hangs in the balance.  I was reminded of a post I wrote last year responding to a global warming skeptic comparing the global warming proponents to creationists.  I said that in fact it was the other way around.  Today, with ‘climate change’ and ‘global warming’ in particular being smacked around, it is good to revisit the issue.

Why?

Because the raw fact is that the … continue reading...

Shouldn’t Christians Want to Save the Planet?

Last week I posted an entry challenging the notion that we can save the planet.   This generated some interesting comments.  One person pointed out that it was his understanding that Christians should care about the environment.  On this there is no dispute.  Since I rarely speak on this issue I thought something more definitive is in order.  Briefly.

There is no question that Christians should care about the environment.  However, the infantile notion that the planet needs saving or could be saved is not what that means.  This notion rests on the idea that the planet has some sort … continue reading...

Does the planet need saving?

Reflecting on the global warming/environmental propaganda being delivered to my son in elementary school, I was left shaking my head.  Whatever it means to ‘save the planet’ it can’t possibly mean ‘save the planet.’

The planet isn’t going anywhere.  The planet doesn’t care if it is polluted.   In fact, ‘polluted’ is a term that is only meaningful relative to we human-folk.  Indeed, ‘save the planet’ can, on the best construction, only mean something to the effect, “save the habitats that we consider important to life.”  Presumably, with all the expressed fear that the ocean levels will rise, etc, what we … continue reading...

Wisdom is Proved Right by Her Children; Evil Proved Evil by His

This weekend I read one of the scariest things I have heard coming out of the Global Warming crowd.   [That link has disappeared, so here it is on Internet Archive] That is saying something.  I have documented elsewhere on this blog some other things they’ve said, like comparing denying man-made Global Warming to denying the holocaust.  This is so disgusting I almost sat down and wrote a book exposing the various principles at work in it but stopped when I thought of at least one that is already written:  C.S. Lewis’s The Abolition of Man.

In summary, the … continue reading...
