  1. Oh yes, Eugenics. Horrible.
    But that tendency was by no way an Atheist movement. Please allow me to cite from an article on

    Religious leaders "who became involved in eugenics ‘included Protestants of nearly every denomination, Jews and Catholics, and they overwhelmingly represented the liberal wings of their respective faiths. … They were the ministers, priests, and rabbis who were inspired by the developments of modern science and accepted much of the new historical criticism of the Bible. … Supporters ranged from high-ranking clerics to small-town ministers in the Methodist, Unitarian, Congregational, Protestant Episcopal, Baptist and Presbyterian churches." Citation from Dr Christine Rosen, "Preaching Eugenics: Religious Leaders and the American Eugenics Movement", Oxford University Press, New York, 2004, p 14f

    To quote H.L. Mencken: "For every complex problem there is a solution that is clear, simple and wrong".
