Trying to be positive

What the Pope said...

"But there was something more. The refusal of Paul VI was not only about the personal problems, that he then tells the confessors to be merciful, to understand if this is true, and then (he tells them) “you can be merciful, more understanding.” He was looking at the Neo-Malthusianism that was underway worldwide. What do you call this Neo-Malthusianism? Less than one percent of birth rate in Italy. The same in Spain. That Neo-Malthusianism that seeks to control humanity on behalf of the powers (that be).This does not mean that the Christian must make children in series. I rebuked a woman some months ago in a parish who was pregnant eight times, with seven C-sections (cesareans). “But do you want to leave seven orphans? That is to tempt God! (Paul VI) speaks of responsible parenthood. What I wanted to say was that Paul VI was not antiquated, close minded. No,(he was) a prophet again who with this (encyclical) told us to watch out for the Neo-Malthusianism that is coming. This is what I wanted to say."
Turns into something the media just made up....

So here's a blog (Jane the Actuary) that has nothing to do with Catholicism or subjects I may post upon, but it's a good read. I read it in the past and Instapundit has given it nod as well. 


  1. Not to worry. The Muslims are making up for the low secular European birth rates. That's going to work out well.

  2. The Pope should sue the media and feed the poor, not that a U.S. Court would ever side with the Church though.

  3. You have such an interesting blog. Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed reading your posts. All the best for your future blogging journey.
