While I am a Catholic, I have never been a fan of Woke Pope Francis. Yes, I realize he is the Pope and yes I realize I should afford him some modicum of respect, but his wokeness really gets on my nerves. However, he did speak out about families deciding to not have children, and it was one of the first things he ever said where I was in agreement.
During a general audience at the Vatican, he said: “Today … we see a form of selfishness. We see that some people do not want to have a child. Sometimes they have one, and that’s it, but they have dogs and cats that take the place of children. This may make people laugh but it is a reality.”
Pet keeping was “a denial of fatherhood and motherhood and diminishes us, takes away our humanity”, he said. The consequence was that “civilisation grows old without humanity because we lose the richness of fatherhood and motherhood, and it is the country that suffers”.
I mentioned this story because Dennis Prager responded to some dolt CNN writer who claimed not having children will help the environment. Prager expanded on a great point. “I think leftists shouldn’t have children,” and suggested less leftists in America would be a good thing. I absolutely agree.

I am a firm believer that children are fun to be around for a while. Then their parents take them home.
Cathy – Yeah, you’re not wrong. My kids are – more or less – good kids, but they’re all teenagers now, and they’re all moody.
Disclaimer, I’m a confessional Lutheran, not a Catholic. That said, the only thing I can’t figure out about the Catholic church is how it had a Pope that was fervent anti-communist and within only a few years of his death, another pope who IS a communist. That boggles my mind.
I wouldn’t trade my children for anything. All three were months premature and everyone was surprised they made it. Docs said it was too risky for my wife to ever do again or we’d have had more. And, when I was really young, I swore I’d never have any kids at all. Go figure. Let’s go Brandon! Push that no kids agenda to your fellow commies.
RG – I was taught by Jesuits in college, so I was happy when Francis was picked. Wow, he was a complete disappointment.
