Carnegie’s Values

In the 1800s rich people like Carnegie felt obligated to fund public works. His libraries serve many American and Canadian cities to this day. You could think of this as a voluntary form of taxation. Rich people today waste money on giant ugly houses, gas-guzzling cars and illegal drugs. We need to find a way for them to gain status by paying extra taxes voluntarily and get public recognition for it.

Catholics Freak Over Euthanasia

On 2016-09-29 the Catholic Bishops of Alberta and the Northwest Territories issued guidelines that say priests should refuse funerals for people who die by assisted suicide. This is odd. Of all possible sins, the Catholics have singled out assisted suicide as the only one worthy of punishing the family rather than the sinner. They consider it even worse than suicide, murder, rape and child molesting. Why punish the family? The family might even have opposed the assisted-suicide.

Suicide is usually a rash decision, made while impaired with drugs or alcohol. It is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.

In contrast, physician-assisted suicide just chops a few weeks or months from the life of a terminally ill person. It is done in consultation with, and with the permission of, many experts. It isn’t about ending life, but rather avoiding needless suffering.

Catholics never cease to amaze me how little common sense they have. I am so disgusted with the Catholics and their ancient con, tricking people into believing they will be tortured for eternity if they don’t pay the church to perform magic propitiation ceremonies.
