Things Are Getting Interestinger And Interestinger At Immaculate Conception
This gives me pause
Helmet tip to Mr. and Mrs. NYPD

The very same Immaculate Conception parish in Durham, NC who've I just posted about having their pagan "Ecological Stations of the Cross", is now hosting Dr. Daniel P. Sulmasy (who also happens to be a Franciscan Friar) who will soon be delivering a lecture entitled "Ethical Issues in Care at the End of Life".

Well, that sounds like good stuff, doesn't it? Maybe not. As they say in the furniture delivery business - back the truck up.

Turns out that the good Friar is also saddled up with an organization known as Project on Death in America. Ohhhh.... that sounds scary, doesn't it? Golly, I wonder what PDIA is all about? Well, I did some research, and I've found the following;
In 1994, the Open Society Institute (OSI) launched a new grant making program called the Project on Death in America (PDIA). Its goal was ambitious: to help transform the experience of dying in the United States. OSI Founder and Chairman George Soros established the project...Huh, what? Did I just read "George Soros? THAT GEORGE SOROS!!??

Here's just a taste of what I've found out;
...Soros began giving money to start the Project on Death in America (PDIA), whose purpose is “to understand and transform the culture and experience of dying and bereavement through funding initiatives in research, scholarship, the humanities, and the arts, and to foster innovations in the provision of care, public education, professional education, and public policy.” OSI remains a strong supporter of PDIA; in 2000 the foundation contributed a three-year $15 million grant to sustain its mission.

Soros’ goal is to transform American attitudes toward death by changing public attitudes about physician-assisted suicide. His financial backing has helped drug legalization proponents gain a new respectability, and he aims to do the same for supporters of euthanasia. PDIA’s large annual budget —$5 million— has helped it achieve prominence. PDIA director Kathleen M. Foley has testified before Congress on physician-assisted suicide,and PDIA-linked physician Susan Block, MD, a psychiatrist with the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, last year argued in the pages of the New England Journal of Medicine that “physician assisted death may be an acceptable option of last resort.”
Ok, now back to Friar Sulmasy. I did some individual-specific research on him, and happily, I've found that in the public statements and papers he's published, he's come out squarely against both euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide (PAS).

But I'm still bothered by the fact that he's a Soros Faculty Scholar. Also, how can someone who has spoken so eloquently against euthanasia and PAS ever have been aligned with the militantly and radically pro-abortion/pro-euthanasia/pro-PAS George Soros? I find that troubling.

After all, would a Jew even contemplate a scholarship from The American Nazi Party? Hardly. Would a Black accept a leadership position offered from The Klan? I kinda doubt it. Would a Catholic ever be professionally recognized as a Soros Faculty Scholar? Oops, I think we already know the answer to that. Hey... if you lie with dogs, you're going to get fleas.

I can only hope that the information's out there and I just haven't found it yet, that Friar Sulmasy has renounced any and all connections to everything that's originated from that dispicable excuse for a human being, Josef Goebbles wannabe, George Soros.
