Prime Minister of Japan makes a case for eugenics

Proverbs 6:16-19 ESV

There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.

If the sound for an alarm has gone unheeded from those in the anti abortion movement, it is coming fast and furious, and loud and clear, and unashamedly and very unapologetically from heads of governments such as Mr. Taro Aso.

The Huffington Post reports:

A senior minister in the Japanese government ignited a firestorm of controversy after commenting recently on his country’s famously long-lived population.

Minister of Finance Taro Aso said Monday that Japanese elderly were creating a financial problem due to the amount of government funding needed for their medical care, reports Time.

„Heaven forbid if you are forced to live on when you want to die. I would wake up feeling increasingly bad knowing that [treatment] was all being paid for by the government,” Aso, himself 72, said. „The problem won’t be solved unless you let themhurry up and die.”

Aso, who also serves as the country’s deputy prime minister, made the inflammatory remarks Monday, during a meeting of the National Council on Social Security Reforms.

    These are people who do not value life, who have no eternal hope, who do not know salvation, and who most of all do not God.

    God „gave them up” to these unholy principles of letting their parents rot away in SNFs and nursing homes in the hopes they will just pass away. Some of them would gladly use euthanasia on these grandparents. What kind of human does that? Rhetorical question… One who does not understand the Spirit of life (Romans 8) the Holy Spirit, one who is blinded by Satan, a murderer and destroyer…

      what is the most perplexing? The age of this man. He is 72 and just because he is healthy today, does not mean he cannot be stricken with an illness. Blindness and pride rules their ruthless hearts. It is very sad to see a 72 year old man lamenting that old people are taking so long to die, I might add- even very FOOLISH. But your term is much more on the mark: BLIND.
