Catholics! Have more babies

I love it when one religion feeds off of he paranoia and fear related to another religion. The Catholics outdid themselves yesterday. Father Piero Gheddo told all European Catholics that the way to fight of Islam is to have more babies.

"Certainly from a demographic point of view, as it is clear to everyone that Italians are decreasing by 120,000 or 130,000 persons a year because of abortion and broken families; while among the more than 200,000 legal immigrants a year in Italy, more than half are Muslims and Muslim families, which have a much higher level of growth,"

I’m not sure if he included protestants in his message. My guess is that he would happy if they did not breed at all given the Catholic church is the only true church and the various protestant creeds have no chance of salvation.

I love how he paints the problem as Islam against Catholic Europe too. Never mind that Europe is largely secular now. I’m sure the Europeans are all rushing out to make babies right now. But wait, what about birth control and abortions? The plan will only work if we curtail those nasty habits too.

Racists priest make the best priests. The Vatican should be so proud. I bet they promote him.

With the demographics and economics of Italy the way they are, it's hardly surprising that the population is dropping. It's a country with a high life expectancy, leading to a high rate of young people unable to move out from their parents' houses due to the cost of housing. They have a high immigration rate adding to an already high population density. Let the population fall - in Italy and everywhere else with an overpopulation problem.
