Follow_Up On Message on Euthanasia

Pastor Mark Scott teaches The Journey Church about Biblical Responses to current social issues.

This past Sunday, I shared a message with our congregation on the subject of euthanasia. Christianity Today magazine stated in their September 5, 2015 issue that this will be the next moral crisis Americans will face in coming years. Already, in the United States, euthanasia is permissable in five states including, most recently, the state of California. This is one of those subjects that sounds reasonable at first glance - in fact, the next day after Brittany Maynard died after moving to Oregon to be allowed to die, 20 newspapers in nine states wrote editorials stating their belief that this right should exist for every American. 

If you listen to the message, you will find that i spent the second half of the address in warning of the slippery slope such decisions bring us to an a nation, states, and communities. I think that the following story that was printed on July 27, 2015 in The Guardian Newspaper. Katie Hopkins is a newpaper columnist and a British television personality and she had the following to say about the elderly in her home country.

Katie Hopkins, a British television personality and former The Apprentice contestant, shows us all just how utterly insane liberal thinking is at its zenith.

Hopkins says that old people should be put to sleep just like animals because they are too much of a drain on society.

And, her solution to carry out this genocide of the elderly is the following...

FEMINIST CELEB: WE NEED ‘EUTHANASIA VANS’ TO DRIVE AROUND AND GET RID OF ALL THE OLD PEOPLE‚Äč

 

Hopkins suggests that we create “euthanasia vans” that drives door-to-door and kills off the elderly.

“We just have far too many old people,” the feminist says. “It’s ridiculous to be living in a country where we can put dogs to sleep but not people.”

According to Hopkins, this can be carried out stylistically, you know, with a flair.

“Euthanasia vans — just like ice-cream vans — that would come to your home,” Hopkins says “It would all be perfectly charming. They might even have a nice little tune they’d play. I mean this genuinely. I’m super-keen on euthanasia vans. We need to accept that just because medical advances mean we can live longer, it’s not necessarily the right thing to do.”

HOPKINS: PEOPLE WITH DEMENTIA ARE ‘BLOCKING BEDS,’ AND THERE’S NO POINT TO THEIR LIVES

Hopkins’ off-color comments weren’t made completely out of the blue. Great Britain has been wrestling with whether or not to allow assisted suicide for some time now, an idea that’s repeatedly been shot down by the Parliament. But Hopkins is tired of all this concern for human life and wants to see all those gray-hairs six feet under as quickly as possible.

This wouldn’t be the first time that Hopkins has shown such disdain for the more vulnerable members of society. A recent “tweet” she posted to Twitter openly mocked dementia patients and their propensity towards forgetting things, writing:

“Babe I’m here again, I’m here again, where have you been. Babe I’m back again. I’m back again Where have you been? Take That Dementia style.”

And just like how she views the elderly, Hopkins is of the persuasion that dementia patients are pointlessly taking up space in hospitals and care facilities, and should be put to sleep. The Mirror Online reported on a related Hopkins tweet that stated, “dementia sufferers should not be blocking beds.” It procee

ded to question the point of their lives.

The former Celebrity Big Brother contestant added: “It would all be perfectly charming. They might even have a nice little tune they’d play. I mean this genuinely. I’m super-keen on euthanasia vans.

“We need to accept that just because medical advances mean we can live longer, it’s not necessarily the right thing to do.”
