(National Catholic Reporter) President Obama met with New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan without fanfare Nov. 8, the White House has confirmed.
“More Children for the Fit. Less for the Unfit.. . .Hebrews, Slavs, Catholics, and Negroes.” Margaret Sanger Planned Parenthood founder
President Obama met quietly and sans his usual fanfare with Archbishop Timothy Dolan the Head of the now robust U.S. Catholic Conference of Bishops on November 8th.
President Obama is the Eugenics/Science Pope of the American Progressive Church. Archbishop Dolan is a Catholic Bishop.
Eugenics is a turn-of-the-last century neologism coined by Charlie Darwin's cousin Francis Galton fusing the Greek terms for 'Good' and 'Birth' - Eugenics ( pronounced FEW- Genics in classical Greek ironically enough).
Eugenics became all the rage. Only one writer- a Catholic convert from Unitarianism and Anglicanism - G.K. Chesterton wrote against Eugenics.
Eugenics is the making of an elite from an elite, by an elite. Margaret Sanger identified those who were not to be considered elite by race, and by perceived weaknesses of body, intellect and soul.
G. K. Chesterton has been dismissed fro the canon of literature even by Vatican II hipsters. Chesterton and his pal Hilaire Belloc are dangerous Catholic intellectuals and very fine writers. They stood up to the likes of GB Shaw, Bertrand Russell and the pan-goofy H.G. Wells quite nicely and most amicably.
Here is a telling account of Chesterton's Eugenics and Other Evils -
Only one writer wrote a book against Eugenics. G.K. Chesterton. Eugenics and Other Evils may be his most prophetic book.
Eugenics led directly to the birth control movement. All the same players were involved, such as Margaret Sanger, who was a member of the American Eugenics Society and was the editor of the Birth Control Review. The primary philosophy was trumpeted on the cover of the Birth Control Review: “More Children for the Fit. Less for the Unfit.” She made it clear whom she considered unfit:. “Hebrews, Slavs, Catholics, and Negroes.” She set up her Birth Control clinics only in their neighborhoods. She openly advocated the idea that such people should apply for official permission to have babies “as immigrants have to apply for visas.”
Why don’t we hear of this connection between Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, and Eugenics?
Two words: Adolf Hitler. He officially instituted Eugenics, leading an entire country in carrying out its principles, not only to breed what he believed to be a superior race but to eliminate everyone whom he considered to be inferior. Where did Hitler find early support for his Eugenic ideas? From Margaret Sanger and her circle. Eugenic Scientists from Nazi Germany wrote articles for Sanger’s Birth Control Review, and members of Sanger’s American Birth Control League visited Nazi Germany, sat in on sessions of the Supreme Eugenics Court, and returned with glowing reports of how the Sterilization Law was “weeding out the worst strains in the Germanic stock in a scientific and truly humanitarian way.”
After World War II, when the world learned of the horrors of the Holocaust and the death camps, the term Eugenics was utterly discredited. Margaret Sanger was quick to distance herself from Eugenics and began to emphasize Birth Control as supposedly a feminist issue. We don’t hear about Eugenics at all any more.
But unfortunately, the philosophy behind Eugenics is with us still. Generally speaking, all of the original arguments in favor of Eugenics have become the same arguments in favor of birth control, abortion, euthanasia, and even cloning.
Chesterton understood this. But he understood it in 1910 (which is when he started writing this book, which was not published till 1922). As with so many other things, Chesterton saw exactly what we see. Only he saw it long before it happened.
Eugenics, like abortion, bases all its benefits on denying an entire class of humans their humanity. With eugenics it was the “unfit,” which usually meant the poor, the weak, or simply the ethnic-types who were just having too many children. With abortion, there is a perceived benefit to someone by eliminating the weakest and most defenseless of humans: the unborn. As Chesterton says with chilling accuracy: “They seek his life in order to take it away.”
G. K. Chesterton would be in awe of our incapable handling of the Science of Death crowd.
Planned Parenthood's President Obama has be-purpled himself in the mantle of science. He is at war with the Catholic Church, but wants to make nice with Archbishop Dolan before the votes get cast. However, his trail of leadership much less complicity in the Science
is only followed by Progressives or really naive people of faith. Here is a dandy example of Obama at War -
In late September, HHS ended funding to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops to help victims of trafficking, or modern-day slavery. The church group had overseen nationwide services to victims since 2006 but was denied a new grant in favor of three other groups.The bishops organization, in keeping with the church’s teachings, had refused to refer trafficking victims for contraceptives or abortion. HHS officials have said they made a policy decision to award the grants to agencies that would refer women for those services.
In recent letters to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, more than 30 Republican lawmakers said the decision was unfair to the Catholic group and might violate federal laws banning discrimination based on religion. Two of the letters are seeking internal HHS documents relating to the decision and one, sent Monday by Rep. Darrell Issa (Calif.), said his investigative committee may issue subpoenas if HHS doesn’t comply.
“We’re talking about a Catholic group with a superior track record that was pushed aside to promote the abortion agenda,” said Rep. Christopher H. Smith (N.J.), who wrote the 2000 law that triggered the U.S. government’s war on human trafficking.
HHS officials said Friday that they will respond to the letters from Congress but not through the media. Richard Sorian, the agency’s assistant secretary for public affairs, said HHS is “fully confident that the organizations best suited to provide comprehensive case management to victims of trafficking were awarded the grants for these services.”
“The health and ability of these victims to retake control over their own lives is our sole concern in awarding these grants,” he said. HHS officials have previously denied any anti-Catholic bias and said that since the mid-1990s, Catholic groups have received at least $800 million in HHS funding to provide social services, including $348 million to the bishops conference.
The dispute is one of several between the Obama administration and some Catholic groups over policy issues, including a proposed HHS mandate that private insurers provide women with contraceptives for free.
Senior HHS officials awarded the new grants to the bishops’ competitors despite a recommendation from career staffers that the Catholic group be funded based on scores by an independent review board, according to federal officials and internal department documents.
That prompted a protest from some HHS staffers, who said that the process was unfair and politicized, people familiar with the process have said.
The $4.5 million in funding was awarded to three nonprofit groups: Heartland Human Care Services, Tapestri and the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants.
The applications of Tapestri and the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants had been scored significantly below the Catholic bishops’ application by the review panel, the sources said.
Sister Mary Ann Walsh, a spokeswoman for the bishops conference, said Friday that she welcomed the letters from Congress. “The more we look at this, the more concerned we are about it,” she said. “It appears the grant process was manipulated.”
One letter to Sebelius, by Republican Sens. Marco Rubio (Fla.), Roy Blunt (Mo.) and Kelly Ayotte (N.H.) and signed by 24 other senators, made a similar point. “The integrity and lawful administration of our federal grant process — particularly with respect to equal treatment of religious institutions — must not be compromised,” it said.
Planned Parenthood's President not only demands to toss out the dead babies, but drown them in bath water for openers.
I am sure that President Obama learned not to lecture Archbishop Dolan on life, health or how Catholics should vote . . .but probably not. President Obama is convinced that he knows everything.
