<p>Mr. Smith calls animal rights activism a quasi religion that maintains
equality between animals and people. (Posted by: <a href="http://religiopoliticaltalk.com/&quot; target="_blank">Religio-Political Talk</a>) He argues that human obligation to
other humans is more important than any obligation to other animals.
The event is at the Discovery Institute in Seattle.</p><ul><li>See his <a href="http://www.discovery.org/p/13&quot; target="_blank"><em><strong>bio</strong></em></a>.</li></ul><p><span style="font-size: medium;">The <strong><a href="http://dailycaller.com/2012/11/17/after-barring-ann-coulter-from-campus…; target="_blank">Daily Caller</a></strong> note the upside-down world of the left</span></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;">-----------------------------------<br /></span></p><div><p style="text-align: justify; padding-left: 30px;"><span style="font-family: andale mono,times;">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.</span></p><p style="text-align: justify; padding-left: 30px;"><span style="font-family: andale mono,times;">According to Fordham’s media relations <a rel="nofollow" href="http://fordhamnotes.blogspot.com/2012/10/panel-christians-and-other-ani…; target="_blank">website</a>,
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.”</span></p><p style="text-align: justify; padding-left: 30px;"><span style="font-family: andale mono,times;">Singer has long lamented the societal stigma against having sex with animals.</span></p><p style="text-align: justify; padding-left: 30px;"><span style="font-family: andale mono,times;">“Not so long ago,” Singer <a rel="nofollow" href="http://article.nationalreview.com/?q=NGYxYjVjNDlmNjQ3NThiM2I1N2RhMDMxMz…; target="_blank">wrote in one essay</a>,
“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.”</span></p><p style="text-align: justify; padding-left: 30px;"><span style="font-family: andale mono,times;">In the&nbsp;<a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.utilitarian.net/singer/by/2001----.htm&quot; target="_blank">essay, titled “Heavy Petting</a>,”
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.”</span></p><p style="text-align: justify; padding-left: 30px;"><span style="font-family: andale mono,times;">“Occasionally mutually satisfying activities may develop” when humans have sex with their pets, he claimed.</span></p><p style="text-align: justify; padding-left: 30px;"><span style="font-family: andale mono,times;">In
addition to supporting bestiality and immediately granting equal legal
rights to animals, Singer has also advocated&nbsp;euthanizing the mentally
ill and aborting disabled infants on utilitarian grounds.</span></p><p style="text-align: justify; padding-left: 30px;"><span style="font-family: andale mono,times;">In his 1993 essay <a href="http://dailycaller.com/2012/11/17/after-barring-ann-coulter-from-campus…; “Taking Life,”</a>&nbsp;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.”</span></p></div><p style="text-align: justify; padding-left: 30px;"><span style="font-family: andale mono,times;">“Very
often it is not wrong at all,” he added, noting that newborns should
not be considered people until approximately a month after their birth.</span></p><p style="text-align: justify; padding-left: 30px;"><a href="http://dailycaller.com/2012/11/17/after-barring-ann-coulter-from-campus…; target="_blank"><em><strong><span style="font-family: andale mono,times;">...read more....</span></strong></em></a></p>
