Pope Francis: Overpopulation is a Myth, The World Needs More Children

Absence makes the heart grow fonder. That sinks in whenever I leave the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. It is good to be back home.

My recent excursion into the imperial city brought me up close and personal with the chattering class. I once dwelled among them; their ways are familiar. They are so well educated, so (mis)informed, so secure in their status as “nice people” who “matter.”  Common sense has been educated away.

Chewing the fat with pseudo-intellectuals is amusing up to a point, after which it gets tiresome for the even-tempered. Enduring their prattle, I heard that climate change (climate is always changing) is the supreme threat, and population reduction (reducing humanity) can save the planet. How about saving humanity? Maybe we could do both?

One of these delightful people referred to Pope Francis as a “dinosaur”. Perhaps they believe that being respectful is an oppressive patriarchal thing.

Legacy media relishes running stories about the declining health of Pope Francis, how he is not long for this world, etc. They lick their chops at the slightest hint of scandal anytime, anyhow, anywhere within the 1.4-billion-strong Catholic fold. This is overzealous secularism in action.

Sadly, that is to be expected in these times. Enlightenment empiricism melded with Cultural Marxism (political correctness) has given rise to incurable secular hubris. How could anyone who disagrees with the “enlightened ones” matter?

States General on Natality

While visibly ageing, Pope Francis is going strong at 87. He had something important to say on the tenth of May. The following headline, from a Latter Day Saint-friendly outlet, brilliantly summarised his remarks:

Have the courage to have children despite climate change and wars, Pope Francis says: The pontiff asks nations to help women juggle motherhood and work, create job security for young people and help couples buy homes.

Francis frequently weighs in about family and fertility. It is heartening that he hammers away at this. His May 10 remarks were at the States General on Natality, a yearly confab sponsored by the Italian government to reverse the country’s falling fertility. The title of this year’s meeting was “Being there: More youth, more future.”
