CANBERRA, Australia, June 14, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Notorious infanticide and bestiality-promoting ethicist Peter Singer was made a Companion of the Order of Australia (AC) this week, sparking strong criticism by pro-life advocates, ethicists, and columnists.
Singer was presented with the award, which is the greatest civic honour in Australia and given for merit of the highest degree in service to Australia or humanity at large, on Monday at the 2012 Queens Birthday honours. It was granted for his “eminent service to philosophy and bioethics as a leader of public debate and communicator of ideas in the areas of global poverty, animal welfare and the human condition.”
Singer, who has been labeled the “most notorious messenger of death” by the bishop of his hometown of Melbourne, has served as Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University since 1999.
He has become infamous for his open promotion of infanticide, bestiality, and experimentation on the mentally disabled.
The professor explicitly rejects the notion of life as sacred, arguing that consciousness and ability to communicate are central features of the person and are what imparts value to a life. He has argued that the decision about whether a disabled person should live or die should be delegated to committees and groups who speak for those unable to articulate their needs the silent, unborn children or the unconscious person in a hospital bed.
Singer is also an advocate of personhood rights for animals and is a leading supporter of animal liberation.
Singer received the award this year along with 380 other men and 159 women. The names of those receiving the award are usually announced in June on the Queens Birthday long weekend, and the award is usually given to those who make an outstanding contribution to medicine, science, the military and the arts.
The Queens Birthday honours have been reduced to the absurd given Peter Singers position on infanticide and bestiality, states Paul Hanrahan, director of Family Life International in Sydney.
Hanrahan declared that Singers award was a commentary on the Gillard led government and the influence of the Greens Party of which Peter Singer was a founding member.”
Whereas, I agree that Peter Singer is Australia’s most famous philosopher and certainly one of the most famous philosophers in the world, Alex Schadenberg, executive director of Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, wrote on his blog, I also agree that his philosophical ideology is incredibly destructive to the equality of all human beings and (if accepted) will lead to the acceptance of infanticide and non-voluntary euthanasia of people with disabilities and cognitive conditions.
Well Bacon comes from them and all I got from my kids was a bunch of crap sooooooo.........., maybe.
I’m sure he’d be a big proponent of cannibalism by zombies if asked!
