The Greatest Sin?

The following essay was written by Joseph Farah.

What’s the greatest sin?

In God’s economy, it would appear to be putting other gods before Him. That, after all, is what the first of the Ten Commandments would suggest.

In a television interview with Mike Wallace 51 years ago, Planned Parenthood saint Margaret Sanger expressed, not surprisingly, some different ideas. While telling Wallace she wasn’t certain she would characterize murder as a sin, she was quick to offer up her own idea about the worst kind of moral trespass.

“I think the greatest sin in the world is bringing children into the world that have disease from their parents, that have no chance in the world to be a human being, practically, delinquents, prisoners, all sorts of things – just marked when they’re born,” she said. “That to me is the greatest sin that people can commit.”

I commend you to watch this 30-minute TV program to see just how much American culture has changed in 51 years.

Today, for instance, one of the greatest sins you can commit is to smoke—or, even worse, to promote smoking. Watch Mike Wallace’s shameless promotion of Philip Morris cigarettes in this show. He’s so persuasive, he convinces Margaret Sanger to take up smoking by the end of the program.

Watch also as Mike Wallace does his best to represent the Roman Catholic position in his interview with Sanger.

There was so much more he could have asked about—but perhaps it would have been too controversial in 1957—just 12 years after the Nazi regime in Germany had been vanquished.

For instance, Margaret Sanger was candid about her eugenicist aims by the time she opened her first clinic in the 1920s:

[If] we can train the Negro doctor at the clinic, he can go among them with enthusiasm and with knowledge, which, I believe, will have far-reaching results. … His work, in my opinion, should be entirely with the Negro profession and the nurses, hospitals, social workers, as well as the country’s white doctors. His success will depend upon his personality and his training by us.

The minister’s work is also important, and also he should be trained, perhaps by the federation, as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs.

Sanger’s clinics were set up with the express purpose of targeting “blacks, Hispanics, Slavs, Amerinds, Fundamentalists, Jews and Catholics.” Her efforts were funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, which is still supporting every insidious cause imaginable. It was Sanger’s views and work that influenced Adolf Hitler in devising his “final solution” for the Jews. I guess Mike Wallace didn’t get the memo.

Sanger was closely tied to Ernst Rudin, who served as Hitler’s director of genetic sterilization. An April 1933 article by Rudin—entitled “Eugenic Sterilization: An Urgent Need”—for Sanger’s monthly magazine, The Birth Control Review, detailed the establishment of the Nazi Society for Racial Hygiene and advocated its replication in the United States. A subsequent article by Leon Whitney published the following June by Sanger, entitled “Selective Sterilization,” praises and defends the Third Reich’s pre-holocaust “race purification” program.

After the war had concluded and Nazi atrocities came to light, Sanger quickly changed the name of her organization from the Birth Control League to Planned Parenthood—to distance herself from her earlier Nazi associations.

But there’s no running away from what she was and what her legacy is.

Today, Planned Parenthood, racist Margaret Sanger’s illegitimate stepchild, receives hundreds of millions of dollars from the U.S. federal government to continue the killing of mostly black and brown babies.

What’s the greatest sin? I would think it would be any national attempt to deny God—to murder Him. To me, that is exactly what abortion is.

As Jesus explained in Matthew 25:40: “And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”
