Hannibal Lecter has nothing on influentail philosopher

A vegetarian is someone who eats only vegetables. So what is a humanitarian?

Marvin Olasky: The most influential philosopher alive (via Evangelical Outpost): "Is anything wrong with a society in which children are bred for spare parts on a massive scale? 'No.'"

Secularism lacks a rational basis for any moral absolutes; without a transcendent Creator morality can only be subjective and dependent on consensus. The problem is that consensus can and does change over time. To the extent that a future consensus reflects the influence of Peter Singer, such a future would be hell on earth. And as Francis Schaeffer demonstrates in The God Who Is There, what is one generation's cutting edge in philosophy is sometimes the next generation's cultural mainstream. Perhaps not coincidentally, Holland is now begining to embrace infantacide.

How long, O Lord...?
