The Poepol Of The Week Award goes to Professor Nico Koopman, theologian from the University of Stellenbosch.

nico_koopmanUndoubtedly, the Poepol of the Weeks Award goes to Professor Nico Koopman, theologian from the University of Stellenbosch, for his comments on physician assisted suicide, from the article published in News24.

“Suffering is simply part and parcel of life on earth,” says Professor Nico Koopman, theologian from the University of Stellenbosch. “But God is with us in our suffering and we are not alone. The suffering person also has a right to life and through suffering we often grow spiritually. God gives knowledge and insight to medical personnel to relieve people’s suffering.”

Now this proves once again how religion rots the brain slowly over time. You have to be bat-shit crazy to believe this dribble. I have no doubt that  Professor Nico Koopman is firmly entrenched in his bronze age beliefs, and will do anything in his power to prevent laws that allow people to get help with ending their suffering with physician assisted suicide.

This is one of many basic human rights that organized religion opposes fiercely.

Professor Nico Koopman truly deserves the coveted Poepol of the Week Award. How the University of Stellenbosch put this moron in charge of theology their gods will only know. But then again, that whole department is built and based on whoo and bullshit, with no credibility in the real world where reason and logic applies.

  1. I respond only now to your article and the responses to it since a family member made me aware of your unfair portrayal of my position on three important matters. The article that you refer to does not reflect my position on suffering. Neither does it reflect my position on what you call physician assisted suicide. The decision about the licencing of our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters is not taken by the faculty of theology, but by churches whose candidates for ministry study with us. A faculty is an academic institution that does not discriminate in terms of matters like sexual orientation. I welcome open dialogue, but my plea is that it be based on an adequate familiarisation with a person’s position.
