Christianity is Rattling: “Lights Out” in Germany

“Contemporary historians … right now, have failed to find a single historical example of a society that became secularised and maintained its birth rate over subsequent centuries,” the former UK chief Rabbi, Jonathan Sacks, recently argued.

“Falling fertility has coincided so closely with massive secularization that we must at least ask whether the two phenomena are related, even if not in a neat one-to-one relationship”, the scholar Philip Jenkins also said.

This is also true apparently for Germany.

    Perhaps an even more acute question would be “Are even a substantial minority of these pathetic brainwashed mentally childlike creatures coming out of our educational systems even capable of raising a child for a few short months before the state steps in?”

    The key to a replenishing birthrate is optimism about the future. Thus victory in World War II led to the baby boom, as Americans felt that the future was bright.

      I concur that is a good part of it but not all. At the time you mention cultural marxism had not yet infected everything from the education system to the media for the most part and people still recognised the difference between good and evil.

    Thank goodness there are all the refugees who are causing the population to explode!

      Literally. A different kind of baby boom.

    The hiring of priests from Africa might be a good thing. We had an African priest in my parish a few years ago…and he was the only one who had the guts to say that Muslims were dangerous (I guess when you actually live in a country with a lot of them you see the danger up close and personal) and that we (Catholics) should fight them in the courts. He was exchanged for a more moderate priest a year later–fµcking Ottawa civil servants didn’t want to hear the truth.

    • Nigerian priests are on the ball about this.

      The Church thrives in Africa and Asia, places that take little crap from Islamists.

      There are also numerous Filipino priests staffing churches in the states.

    Along those lines, Camille Paglia noted that whenever in history there’s been an efflorescence to transgenderism, it happen shortly before the society collapses. Such was the case with the fall of Rome.
