Joe Biden’s macabre support of China’s forced abortion/sterilization one-child policy

Vice President Joe Biden is known for his foolish gaffes and inappropriate statements – not positive attributes, particularly in a politician. But what Biden said in China on August 20 was beyond foolish and inappropriate. It was macabre, it was sick… I never thought anyone could match Barack Obama’s penchant for abortion. As you know, […]

Biden to China: “Not second-guessing” one-child policy, it’s just “not sustainable”

Your policy has been one which I fully understand – I’m not second-guessing – of one child per family. The result being that you’re in a position where one wage earner will be taking care of four retired people. Not sustainable. ~ Vice President Joe Biden (pictured above with granddaughter Naomi and US Ambassador to […]

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat Margaret Somerville comments on “deselecting our children”: Here’s a recent Danish headline: “Plans to make Denmark a Down syndrome-free perfect society.” The Danes want to promote aborting fetuses with Down syndrome, so their society will be free of such people around 2030.

shrewdsnakes_1x-1Then the Pharisees met together to plot how to trap Jesus into saying something for which he could be arrested. They sent some of their disciples, along with the supporters of Herod, to meet with him.

“Teacher,” they said, “we know how honest you are. You teach the way of God truthfully. You are impartial and don’t play favorites. Now tell us what you think about this: Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar or not?”

But Jesus knew their evil motives. “You hypocrites!” he said. “Why are you trying to trap me? Here, show me the coin used for the tax.” When they handed him a Roman coin, he asked, “Whose picture and title are stamped on it?”

Caesar’s,” they replied.

“Well, then,” he said, “give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and give to God what belongs to God.”

His reply amazed them, and they went away.

~ Matthew 22:15-22, quoted by Center for Bio-Ethical Reform’s Gregg Cunningham last night in a debate against Abolish Human Abortion’s T. Russell Hunter, “Incrementalism vs Immediatism,” as an example of Jesus’ pragmatism. The Pharisees expected Jesus to oppose the tax, and rightfully so – Jesus owed no one anything, particularly a subservient ruler, nor did the Jews, as chosen children of the true King. But Jesus determined the time was not yet right to exert His authority and trigger the revolution, demonstrating shrewdness, which Cunningham indicated could be applied to the pro-life movement via incrementalism and pragmatic public speech.
