Perhaps this will allow me to post the entire writing I attempted to post, earlier, and was told that it was limited to 140 characters.
Fundamentalist religions, especially the Catholic church, are steering us toward total disaster in regard to the environment, global warming, animal extinctions at alarming and unprecedented rates. How, you might ask. Obviously, the more people, the more resources u sed, the more land and forests destroyed for homes, streets, mines of various types, et bloody cetera. We seriously need to reduce our world population to pre-1950 levels, and maybe even more.
Attrition would do it except for the fact that we still have a ridiculous fertility rate among third-world countries, of which the U.S. is rapidly becoming due to the horrendous influx of Hispanic immigrants, both legal and illegal. They are generally from exceptionally poor countries and are superstitious (religious) primarily in the Catholic faith.
Fortunately (maybe), many women of said faith are ignoring the tenets of their churches because they want control over their own bodies and the number of children they bear, if any are, in fact, desired.
In other words, these superstitious and controlling institutions seem to be wanting THE END to come in their lifetimes and are doing their best to accelerate the process.
Many, If not most, of the environmental groups are afraid to address the population issue, except for Zero Population Growth and Negative Population Growth and a few others.
As to allowing all of these aliens into our country, statistics show that we could take in millions of poor immigrants, each year, and it would make not whit of difference to the world overpopulation problem.
You'll find that many environmentalists, like myself, are atheist or agnostic. The religious institutions that preach watching over and protecting humankind and our wildlife are seriously deficient in that they are much more concerned with little globs of cells in a woman's body than humans and animals that are already alive and need assistance.
You'll notice that nearly all of those who speak out against birth control are old, fat, balding white men who do not know or care about the women whose lives they are seeking to control.
Rant over for now.
