When former VP Al Gore warned about population explosion, maybe we didn't know what he meant. Making the front page of news stories this week was a USToday article that started with these words: "The United States faces a severe worker shortage in the near future." The same day, Mark Steyn writes this paragraph in a Wall Street Journal op-ed piece subtitled "The Real Reason the West Is in Danger of Extinction": "One obstacle to doing that is that, in the typical election campaign in your advanced industrial democracy, the political platforms of at least one party in the United States and pretty much all parties in the rest of the West are largely about what one would call the secondary impulses of society--government health care, government day care (which Canada's thinking of introducing), government paternity leave (which Britain's just introduced). We've prioritized the secondary impulse over the primary ones: national defense, family, faith and, most basic of all, reproductive activity--"Go forth and multiply," because if you don't you won't be able to afford all those secondary-impulse issues, like cradle-to-grave welfare." Our population is exploding alright.
I'm not endorsing this, but when I was young, I saw the old Frankenstein movies in which the victims couldn't get away from a monster walking slower than a department of motor vehicles line. As a child, I was screaming things like "turn," " jump in the car," "hop over the fence," "don't stop." Even the editorial staff of the NY Times could have come up with a solution. Our big ideas for lack of population are immigration, amnesty, and free health care and education to illegals (and these are another issue altogether). Conversely, a young man in our church went to a town hall meeting with our Democratic Congressman, George Miller, on the social security issue. He raised his hand in a crowded room, was called upon, and said that abortion was murdering the contributors to the social security fund. For merely mentioning this, he was chastised by his freedom-of-speech-loving representative and heckled by most in the room. These are people who would have been caught by Frankenstein.
This explains our population explosion. (1) Murdering over 38 million of our babies since 1973 overwhelmingly out of convenience. At least 38 million native born tax-paying workers exterminated, not including the children that some of these would be having by this time. (2) The birth rate rapidly declining among the self-centered baby buster generation, who view children as a cost and disruption to their lifestyles. In 1964, the number of live births in the United States exceeded four million for the last time until 1989. Between 1952 and 1957, the birth rate remained within a very narrow range, from 25.0 to 25.3 births per 1,000 population each year; but in 1958 it fell to 24.5, setting off a trend that saw birth rates decline for eleven consecutive years - the longest uninterrupted slide in the 20th century. People have simply rebelled against God's unrescinded command to multiply and replenish the earth. (3) Homosexuals do not reproduce. I asked a jr. high history class why population decreases and young Jessica mentioned this first. The rise in homosexuality decreases population, explaining why San Francisco has the lowest percentage of children than any major city in the U. S. (4) Increased murder rate. A majority of murders are committed by parolees. Did you know that the per capita murder rate in Washington DC is greater than the rate of U. S. soldiers being killed in combat in Iraq? We may need to consider a withdrawal plan for the nations capitol or risk getting bogged down in another Vietnam.
Did you know that the greatest rise in population parallels the greatest rise in prosperity in the history of the world? The above reasons simply list four sins that have reaped and will bring both built-in and direct Divine punishment on this nation. They represent the cause for a real population explosion in this country.
