The Pope is fucking your mindThe Pope has aimed a deliberate insult at those of us who have chosen to have small families. He calls us "greedy":... a society with a greedy generation, that doesn't want to surround itself with children, ... is a depressed society.
I shall reply in kind.
I don't particularly trust the motives of "celibate" priests who like to surround themselves with other peoples children...
Of course, the Pope's real motive is power. More followers means more power. And when the Pope has enough followers he can subvert the democratic processes of other nations. Acquisition of power is the motive that drives most religious leaders to:
Yes, the Pope is a birth controller:
- Indoctrinate children of followers long before those children have developed the intellectual capacity to think for themselves.
- Control the reproduction of followers.
I recall a story, told on CBC radio, about Mrs Fisk --- a well-educated Catholic, for sure --- who had 14 children. Apparently, her husband suggested that they stop when they reached 4; a number compatible with their means. That night, the good lady slept on the matter and she had a dream. She dreamed that she died and went to heaven. And there in heaven she was confronted by all the children she had never had! All those poor children who never had a life! Oh, what a wonderfully Catholic dream! Poor Mrs Fisk... Which priest was feeding her bullshit? But never mind folks. All worked out well. The good old Canadian Government could be counted on to look after all those children that Mrs Fisk really couldn't afford. What's more, she became famous. They told her story on CBC radio, after all. What more could the Pope have wished for?
I'm not an unfair man. I'm prepared to give due consideration to questions raised by the Pope. His Holymess asks:Just think of the many societies we know here in Europe. They are depressed societies because they don't want children, they don't have children. The birth rate doesn't even reach 1%, why?Well, I know damned well that the Pope has no interest in my reasons "why?" or your reasons "why?" So I'll remind the Prime Pontificator about God's reason "why?". God said... be fruitful and fill the Earth.God did not say: go ahead and totally stuff the Earth.
If God existed, I'm damned sure he'd know what happens when population gets ahead of available resources. Ah, back to the Middle ages: those were the best of times for religious control-freaks.
The Pope has his agenda. And he has his mind-fucking methods.
