The Progressive Moral Reasoning of Margaret Sanger

I discussed some Darwinian-inspired "progressive" moral reasoning in a post two days ago. In this previous post, I provide some quotes from Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, from her 1922 book, The Pivot of Civilization. For example:
Moreover, when we realize that each feeble-minded person is a potential source of an endless progeny of defect, we prefer the policy of immediate sterilization, of making sure that parenthood is absolutely prohibited to the feeble-minded.

I invite you to go see why she thinks providing free medical and nursing facilities to poor mothers is an "insidiously injurious" form of philanthropy, and see how she uses the "colorful" phrase "a dead weight of human waste."

The danger isn't that the reasoning is bad. The danger is that the reasoning is sound, and the conclusions are inescapable for anyone who accepts evolution.

The next time I hear someone call a Christian a hypocrite for sinning, and not living 100% according to their religion, I'm going to call them a grand hypocrite for buying into evolution, but not living according to THEIR religion.

If there is no God, and if evolution is true then everyone is just a complicated chemical reaction. And there is no immorality in a chemical reaction. Compound X breaks apart compound Y because that's what compound X does.

If the chemical reaction that I call my self ends the chemical reaction that you call your self, then that is also not immoral or wrong. It's just what happens when you mix up chemical "me" with chemical "you."

WIthout God there is no basis for the concept of morality. There is only "lawfulness." If there is no morality then there is no reason to live a moral, or even a lawful life. Yet evolutionists do so with great frequency. Thus, the hypocrisy.

Then I'll point out why the Christian isn't a hypocrite at all.
