OK, he may be somewhat honest here, but he clearly is still one big selfish greedy pig, if I can put it politely. I refer to aging pop star Elton John and his utter contempt of children – including his own. He has now admitted his manufactured child is missing out.
I previously wrote about how he and his “husband” ordered a baby boy, conceived by an anonymous surrogate mother from California and a separate egg donor, much like one would put in a demand for a made-to-order sports car. Children are simply commodities in such situations, manufactured to satisfy the selfish wants of selfish adults: billmuehlenberg.com/2011/01/03/more-commodification-of-children/
And now several years on even old Elton is acknowledging that his own son is getting a raw deal. The headline puts it this way: “It will break my son’s heart to realise he hasn’t got a mother, says Elton as he reveals he’d like Zachary to have a sibling”.
We can stop right there for a moment. Did you get that? He actually admits that he is depriving his child of one of the two most important persons in his life – his own mother – and yet he wants to do it again to another poor kid. And of course young Zachary does not even have his own biological father either. All he has is some spoiled rotten senior citizen rocker and his male lover.
The article begins this way: “Since his son’s birth 18 months ago, Sir Elton John has been the epitome of the proud father. But the flamboyant star, now enjoying life as the parent of a toddler, has admitted it will be ‘heartbreaking’ for Zachary to grow up without a mother.
“The singer, 65, and his civil partner David Furnish, were delighted when Zachary arrived on Christmas Day 2010. Sir Elton John and David Furnish, 49, have made it no secret that they want to have another child to keep Zachary company.
“Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John – to give him his full name – was born via surrogate in California and was conceived using a donor egg. Sir Elton and Mr Furnish, 49, have made it no secret that they want to have another child, and may start trying to father a sibling for Zachary this summer.
“However, in an interview, Sir Elton confessed: ‘It’s going to be heartbreaking for him to grow up and realise he hasn’t got a mummy. But he’s so happy. I’ve never seen a more contented child. ‘And you have never seen two more contented people as David and I.’ Talking about boosting their family, the singer said: ‘I’d love to have more children’.”
So am I the only one absolutely staggered by all this? He has a flash of insight and honesty, realising that he is messing with his own child big time by denying him his right to have a biological mother (and father), and yet he says he wants to do it all over again!
Is this the height of selfishness or what? Is this the height of stupidity or what? Is this the height of arrogance and callousness or what? I repeat: Elton is a big fat selfish greedy pig. No question about it. So is every single adult boofhead who thinks he or she has a right to deliberately bring children into the world robbed of their own mother and father.
I do not resile from this statement for a moment. I am sick and tired of seeing poor defenceless and helpless children being treated as mere commodities or fashion statements for completely selfish adults who think they can buck biology, spurn morality, and defy logic.
Shame on Elton, and shame on all these other selfish social engineers who do not give a rip about the well-being of children and simply want to satisfy their own greedy wants. They are deliberately creating a new stolen generation – cavalierly denying children the two most important people they will ever need.
But we live in an age which is contemptuous of children and their basic human rights. All the attention is on the selfish whims and wants of immature adults who think the world owes them everything – including their own designer children.
Any society which allows selfish adult desires to trump the needs and interests of children is a society which is in steep and dangerous decline. Well did Jesus warn: Whoever causes one of these little ones to stumble, it would be better for him if he had been cast into the sea with a heavy millstone hung around his neck.’
