Happy Easter

Christ is risen!

Peter S. Williams has posted a good collection of material on the evidence for the resurrection, to which I'd add the this talk by N.T. Wright at the Faraday Institute at Cambridge Univeristy.

As for what that means - check out this very short outline from Sam Allberry, student worker at the church I was part of as a student.

The new eugenics, part II: Racial elements

Dear reader, I'm going to assume that you don't hold such explicitly racist opinions as "the fewer black kids out there the better". I'm going to assume that you're not trying to "lower the number of blacks". But if you were, how would you go about doing that? Like this:

Abortion as genocide? Strong words, of course. But consider what this investigation by Lila Rose has revealed: Planned Parenthood will take donations from people who are explicitly giving money for the purposes outlined in the quotations above. They even have specific schemes in place to enable this.

Another point. In my last post on abortion as eugenics, I gave a list of freethinking eugenicists from the prewar period. To that list we can add Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, who bemoaned the "ever increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all" and claimed that "our failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying [...] demonstrate our foolhardy and extravagant sentimentalism".
