Pope pope pope. You really should learn to think before you speak. NPR says why.
Pope Francis said that couples who opt not to have children are being “selfish” as he spoke of a “greedy generation” that’s choosing not to procreate.
Think, pope pope. Slow down, stop talking, take a breath, and think.
Any luck yet?
Pope pope, you opted not to have children yourself. Officially. You look very fucking stupid saying things like that, given your own choices.
I know – you expect us to treat that as different, because it’s part of your ReLigIon. Nope. Not gonna do that. It’s not different, it’s the same, so you have no standing to go tut tut at everyone.
That’s before we get to the fact that it’s terrible advice at a time when the planet may be tipping into a rapid slide to drought and famine and mass extinction.
Speaking at his general audience in St. Peter’s Square on Wednesday, Francis talked on the joy of children and their importance in society, at one point reminiscing about his own mother.
“A society with a greedy generation, that doesn’t want to surround itself with children, that considers them above all worrisome, a weight, a risk, is a depressed society,” the pope said. “The choice to not have children is selfish. Life rejuvenates and acquires energy when it multiplies: It is enriched, not impoverished.”
Except, of course, when the ice caps are melting and the rivers are shrinking and the coral reefs are dying and the crops are failing.
I suppose he thinks his buddy God will intervene at the last minute and reverse all that, and then we’ll want all those extra babies.
