The Pope: Because We Are Too Many

Okay. Here at SoL we are frrrreaking out today. This is why. According to, and as reported on Fox News, at a Vatican-run workshop at the Vatican on March 3, 2017 a panelist said this: "Pope Francis has urged us to have fewer children to make the world more sustainable." The article continues with more disturbing statements from the conference that sound alarmingly socialist and even genocidal. A paper read at the conference promotes forced abortion and mass forced sterilization as a means to reduce the world's population.

There is so much wrong with this we don't know where to begin. Let's just work on the Pope's alleged pronouncement. Apparently he is worried about the sustainability of the natural world God created for us, which sounds like he doesn't have much faith. He also obviously doesn't care that Christians having less children and Muslims having more children will amount to the voluntary extinction of Christianity! He doesn't sound very religious at all, does he?

Besides the fact that mainstream science doesn't have much understanding at all of the sustainability of the natural world and touts a bunch of outdated and politicized theories that have no evidentiary support, has any Christian Church ever said such a thing? We think not. Not only does this run totally contrary to the Catholic Church's basic tenets (prohibiting birth control!--and let's admit that any form of limiting children is a form of birth control), it also shows that the Church intends to replace biblical tenets to "multiply and replenish the earth" with secular progressive propaganda that the world cannot sustain human life and doesn't have "enough and to spare." He is in essence saying that children, that is, human beings, that is human posterity, is not more valuable than any other type of life and  are not the most valuable resource the world has. This is a huge about-face from the wisdom of the ages, Holy Scripture, and the most basic of human values, which is to cherish and promote human posterity. Think about it. This is the stuff of paganism, nihilism, Communism.

We shouldn't be surprised. We live in a world where many people care more about the here and the now and their own selfish pleasures than anything beyond themselves. It's a world that brutally destroys its unborn, makes money on pornography, sodomizes marriage, has turned sex into casual promiscuous entertainment, increasingly sexualizes and abuses children, makes porn available and attractive to children, sells young people and children into sex slavery, and more, all of which are anti-posterity, anti-children, anti-family, anti-goodness, and anti-God in nature and purpose. It's a world that devalues the right things and values the wrong things, to put it mildly.

Oh, but there's even more wrong with this secular progressive, anti-humanity, pagan Pope. Has anyone ever read Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy? In it the little children overhear their parents  talking about how hard life is and how they are struggling to make ends meet. The result? They find their three darling and beloved children having hanged themselves in a closet, leaving a note to their parents, "because we are too many." This part of the book is so tragic it's almost impossible to read.

Does the Pope think his words won't affect anybody who is now living? Any poor family? Or any family who even thinks it should have more money or should leave less of a carbon footprint? Any children who might see their parents working hard to provide for them? Talk about inciting abortion,  democide, genocide, and perhaps even suicide! What couple is going to want children, what child is going to feel his true worth, after hearing such words from such an authority figure? It seems we're all supposed to feel guilty for existing! What a scrooge this Pope turns out to be. Remember what Dickens has Mr. Scrooge say back in the 1800s about what a good thing it would be to "decrease the surplus population?"How can there be a surplus of God's children? Any problems can be best dealt with  by using our heads and hearts, knowledge and charity, i.e. the spirit of the Lord.

As Tolkien wrote, "What new devilry is this?" Yes, but well, it isn't new. What's new is who is touting it. The leader of the Catholic Church, the biggest Christian church in the world.  Having rejected God, the world is lost in contradiction and uncertainty about, of all things, the value of human beings: who is valuable, when they are valuable, why they are valuable, and how many are valuable.

The world is a very wicked place, not because there are wicked people in it, but because even goodish people do nothing. Sad to say, we are so far beyond this. In this case, and many other cases, the "good people" have actually switched sides and are proactively encouraging the wickedness.

In our family we're in the middle of welcoming and helping with our 24th grandchild, the sweetest little thing you ever saw. Jesus said, "Suffer the little children to come unto me." The word "suffer" means allow. How anti-Christ this world has become that it disallows, discourages, and even destroys, human posterity in every possible way!

I appreciate this post! I was also disgusted to hear about what the pope said. This leader seems to be very liberal indeed, on several topics.
