Hey Lefties; Put Down What You’re Doing and Start Procreating.

March 27, 2006 at 9:06 pm (Culture, Politics)

Here's a scary thought. From an evolutionary standpoint, religious conservatives have a distinct advantage over secular liberals; They tend to have more children. Around the world, especially in Europe, progressive societies are experiencing negative population growth (less then 2.1 kids per couple.) In the United States this trend is countered by the Bible-Belt and Bread-Basket States where opposition to birth control and patriarchal views on family still prevail. For those of you who wonder how it is possible that so many people in this country could have possibly voted for Bush in the 2004 election, or how so many people could hold such regressive views on issues such as gay marriage, this issue may be a predominant factor. If this is the case, it doesn't bode well for the future.

    NPR had a guest on whose field of study was cults. One thing he said stuck with me. Cults survive in one of two ways, they either aggressively breed or aggressively proselytize. An absence of either always results in failure. While he was talking specifically about cults, one could certainly extrapolate when talking about our current right hand lean as a society. The Catholic church would hardly find longevity in the promotion of birth control given their hesitation to knock on doors with the fervor of a Jehovah’s Witness.
