Campus bans Ann Coulter, invites professor who calls sex with animals potentially ‘satisfying’

DC

After effectively barring conservative columnist Ann Coulter from speaking on campus last week, the Jesuit college Fordham University welcomed infanticide and bestiality advocate Peter Singer for a panel discussion on Friday.

According to Fordham’s media relations website, Singer, a tenured Princeton bioethics professor, spoke from 4 to 6 p.m. in a panel the university promised “will provoke Christians to think about other animals in new ways.”

Singer has long lamented the societal stigma against having sex with animals.

“Not so long ago,” Singer wrote in one essay, “any form of sexuality not leading to the conception of children was seen as, at best, wanton lust, or worse, a perversion. One by one, the taboos have fallen. But … not every taboo has crumbled.”

In the essay, titled “Heavy Petting,” Singer concluded that “sex across the species barrier,” while not normal, “ceases to be an offence [sic] to our status and dignity as human beings.”

“Occasionally mutually satisfying activities may develop” when humans have sex with their pets, he claimed.

In addition to supporting bestiality and immediately granting equal legal rights to animals, Singer has also advocated euthanize the mentally ill and aborting disabled infants on utilitarian grounds.
In his 1993 essay “Taking Life,” Singer, in a section called “Justifying Infanticide and Non-Voluntary Euthanasia,” wrote that “killing a disabled infant is not morally equivalent to killing a person.”

    This guy writes about “ethics.”
    I guess when you’re a specialist in “ethics” you can call anything “ethical” and dumb people will think that makes it right.

    Fordham University has officially ceased to be any kind of moral, ethical, and Christian institution at this point.

    They might as well apply to be another state-run institution of lower learning. Singer has given them one extremely disgraceful target at which to aim.

    I try to tell people. Homosexuality was just the start. Next comes bestiality and then pedophilia…..not necessarily in that order.

    When men make their own rules about what is moral and ethical, with no thought of God or a higher authority, this is what you get.

    People, we are seeing the end of the American culture, the ethical culture set up by the Founders based on the Bible.

    I’ve been reading “The Law” by Frederic Bastiat (thanks to whoever it was on iOTW who linked to it a few days back) and it is clear: once the law is perverted by the “plunderers”, no amount of religion or morality will alter the course.

    Revival or revolution………

    This guy needs to be executed and his body hung up at Princeton for all to look at. What a complete degenerate and kids pay huge tuition to go there and have their morals eroded day by day from the constant exposure to this kind of stuff. There isn’t any doubt in my mind as to why God is judging America when we sit still for this. I’m writing Princeton’s Board of directors their response should be interesting, I’ll get back to you when it happens.

    Having boarded a train of thought that started with the “me too!” narrative that began last week with the GOP going nuts about “changing the culture”, and continuing a comment I made Heaven-knows-how-many IOTW threads ago (I think it was yesterday), I’ve spent some time this weekend refreshing/researching the current lit-rah-tchur around “Cultural Marxism” (I’m am using that term parenthetically because I think we need to come up with something that doesn’t smack of the Progtard Pulpit), something that makes it easier for people to not disregard.

    All to say: Write your letters, emails, make your phone calls to Fordham. Everyone wants to win back the culuture, well here’s your shot. The only reason Fordham is okey-dokey with this guy and not Coulter is because Fordham is obviously already poisoned through-and-through with the mold of “Cultural Marxism.” Allowing a stage and a mic for someone who in times past would have been strung up in a straight jacket to talk to our nation’s impressionable youth about subjects that further damage the values of a culture we are trying to take back is prime example of “Cultural Marxism” and can no longer be tolerated if we ever expect to take this country back.

    I was very distraught after the election and I want so badly for this country to turn around. To recover its founding roots. To get back on course.

    Then I got even more distraught after reading The Law. Then, I got angry.

    Now I’m at the acceptance stage. This has happened to every major empire in history. Regarding The Law (Bastiat, French philosopher), he was sounding the warning bell for France, but no one headed it. Look at France now.

    That’s where we’re headed. It inevitable. It may take some time. It may take some blood. But it is the natural course.

    Keep your faith. Teach your children. Protect yourself, your family and your friends. Things are going to get bad.

    No amount of letters or elections can stop it……

    Once again another example of the infiltration and corruption of the Church. This is supposed to be the type of dialogue that the Church stands firmly against, especially when it’s within it’s direct sphere of influence.

    Each of the Synoptic Gospels contain this statement: “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea.

    Dear Absolute muddjuice — Fear not, friend. There is a way to do this. There is. It won’t happen over night and for some of us it will probably not happen in our lifetimes, but we can’t give up. There are a lot of people who have a deep, deep understanding of what is happening. I’ve got at least one idea on how to get everyone pulling on the same oar but I need help. I need to figure out how to start something bigger than a website to bring the country’s constitutionalists all together in one place — everyone — “Constitution Central” if you will. We’re too fractured, too atomized to be effective on our own. Even the very large, well-known orgs are swimming out there in a sea of Progtardia in the broadcast and online media. There’s no reason we should be at the mercy of the people who want to destroy us.

    I have faith that God is in control. Please don’t misunderstand. I just have little faith in the government.

    Out of curiosity, have you ever read “The Law”? It was eye opening for me.

    I am a fierce student of history. I am a strident constitutionalist. I believe in the goodness of people in general. But I also understand man’s inherent evil, that we are all born sinful, and, apart from a foundational faith in the one true God, there can be no true, lasting justice or law.

    I am not a pessimist by nature, I’m an optimist. I am content with what God provides and I believe His grace is sufficient.

    I’ll stand up for what’s right. I’ll speak out in defense of morality and Biblical ethics. I’ll speak out against evil.

    And, if it comes to it, I’ll fight for truth and justice. I will fight for the American way. (Superman was on to something).

    But this is inevitable……

We’ve been under such a barrage for so long now, haven’t we?

    If it is convenient for you, would you post the link to “The Law” on this thread? I missed it earlier.

    Have been doing lots more studying in the Word lately. It is imperative for us to put as much visible distance as possible between ourselves and this degeneracy. And–though I know this may not be popular with some posters–”hate the sin, but love the sinner”. Every single one of us could be this fallen. If we aren’t, it’s by the grace of God, and our faith.

    I spent months, some years ago working on the Fordam University Campus in The Bronx, NY. We were renovating a building to accomodate young Jesuits.
    They got spacious rooms, two to the room with pone and television and Computer setup They had a spaceous Day room, a state of the art kitchen, cooks, servants and maids galore. They were Jesuits.
    I. as an Irish Catholic working man, could not believe the arrogance of these fuckers. On final inspection day I, and another carpenter, was doing touch up work.A “punch list” it’s called in the trade.When these little pipsqeeps were were running around admiring what they had. We were refused admitance to several dormitary rooms to replace a tile or two because the two Jesuits were getting to know each other. “Come back in an hour” we were told. Not a thank you, not any appreciatiom for the job well done. Nothing. They just expected it. My thoughts at the time was that these fuckers should spend some time in the Congo. The Catholic Church has lost Fordham, Georgetown, and Boston College./

    Somebody told me he was the same professor that was on Gillikin’s island. I believed it for a few seconds. Maybe a lot of seconds but not a whole minute. Come to think of it considering how time flies it could have been a minute and then some without me knowing it so to make a long rambling bunch of bs less long but still as rambling, I’ll just round up or down to the minute which ever would have been the direction if I knew where I was going with this. I know people are as picky as I can be. Almost.

    Pardon me if I seem ‘distracted’ but I’m cooking eggs and turkey bacon on the griddle for six strangers who thought my house looked like a restaurant. It does. It worked like I thought it would! My wife didn’t like the idea. That’s why I offered to cook for them. She refuses to wake up.

    So it was just a regular professor. I would have expected it from a movie star professor. I wouldn’t expect it from a tv program professor as much but still more than a regular professor. I used ‘regular’ instead of ‘normal’ because then I would have discovered a new oxymoron and lost track of what I was talking about because I was talking about something else not the oxymoron, ‘normal professor’. It’s not normal to not be able to lose your job. Especially when you’re that fucked up. Excuse my French. It’s actually German. Fuck.

    You might think I’m weird to say what I’m about to say. So I’ll just blurt it out. “This professor is welcome to come to my house!” You want weirder. What else would you expect of the word ‘weird’. <— hmm, that doesn't look as weirdly misspelled? Weirder is weirder than weird! At least to me. But I'm no weird expert or at least I look normal. Leave it at that. Don't question me. You will probably agree with the answer but only because by the time I get to the end you will have forgotten the beginning which makes for incompleteness or you'll realize I would rather talk than cook and you agreed so you could have some eggs. Sorry I slowed up typing. Had to flip scramble some eggs because a yolk broke. Did I mention the turkey bacon? I've finished plucking the turkey. Would have been easier if I had of killed it first. Let's skip the bacon today and have grits with shrimp!

    Back to the extremely weird professor. Why'd I invite him to come over? I have a dog. She's the love of my Life! Beautiful! Athletic! Has a sense of humor! I like that in a dog. The professor can come over. Sound weird to you? Why? I have a gun. Not that my dog can't bite good enough. She's never bit me but she can chew through nylon strapping a half inch thick! Couldn't find any any thicker yet. I wish he could come over now so when I blow his brains out it will be an easier clean up with all these feathers all over the place!

    Anyway I need to get a rifle considering the larger pattern of a shotgun. If as much as one little lead pellet harmed my dog I would be unfortunate because I would be even madder and the professor would already be dead. The other reason I need to get a rifle is my wife has hidden my shotgun from me. Usually I can find anything she hides or loses. But in this instance I was also hiding the shotgun from her. Neither of us can find it now. We'll have to wait till her or I stumble upon it. Way to go. Good start to the day. The six people have left. They were weird anyway or maybe it was the smell of burning eggs and turkey feathers that had them go down the street to the Waffle House. Funny but the Waffle House people had the inverse idea of what I had. I've got to clean this mess up before my wife does. She's asleep now but I'll be found out. This will end up being the weird dream she had last night. Hope she doesn't remember it. Hope she doesn't wake up soon. From the look of this mess I hope she doesn't wake up till Tuesday. Make that Thursday. It's Monday BTW.
