Deaths exceed births among Christians in pro-choice Europe

From Giulio Meotti at Gatestone

According to it, between 2010 and 2015, the Muslim population increased by more than 150 million people to 1.8 billion.

In Europe, how many Christians have been “lost”? Between 2010 and 2015, “deaths outnumbered births by nearly 6 million during this brief period”.

At this pace, Christianity will vanish in Europe.

In the same time frame, in most European countries — including Britain, Germany, Italy and Russia — Christian deaths outnumbered Christian births. “In Germany alone, for example, there were an estimated 1.4 million more Christian deaths than births between 2010 and 2015, a pattern that is expected to continue across much of Europe in the decades ahead”, Pew discovered. There are clear patterns of demographic trends, church attendance, closures of parishes and the declining number of priests.

These patterns are why Islamic leaders, such as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, have been waging a demographic war against Europe. “Have not just three but five children”, Erdogan said to Muslims in the old continent. “You are the future of Europe”. … More.

Reality check:  There is no reason to show the slightest sympathy for people who demand protection for their “culture” but refuse to have children for lifestyle or ideological reasons, kill them in abortions, and sneer at Uncool people who do have children.

If the Muslims simply refrain from those practices, they will inherit Europe, and North America too, simply in the course of nature. And there is no reason to complain about it either if you are “pro-choice.”

As Mark Steyn puts it, the future belongs to those who show up for it.

    Another victory for western feminists.

    Why, why, why? Why won’t non-muslims have children? Pure selfishness? Or it’s too expensive? Well, the muslims sure seem to find a way to afford them – are they given financial advantages that non-muslim parents do not have? Or is it all about despair in the end, and secularism, which ultimately leads people to not care about the future, and to not invest in it, even in regard to having children? And why is Christianity so vulnerable to secularism and atheism, but Islam seems largely immune? Because of Islam’s death penalty for apostasy, perhaps? Or is it to do with the very nature of Islam, unfree, restrictive, rigid and thought-killing as it is, or the semi-tribal societal structure that follows from Islam and turns independent people into automatons?

    Questions and questions, and no real answers. I don’t understand. I only understand that Christianity, and Western civilization, is coming to an end. And what replaces it will be inferior in so many ways. Yet Islam is emerging triumphant after centuries of conflict. Thank God I won’t be around to witness the final act of this long tragedy ….

      In a way Western Civilization sowed the seeds of its own destruction. The Freedoms and Rights we cherish led us to these choices.

      many muslims scam the system. The most devout have multiple wives 2, 3 or more. They spend consecutive nights with each wife and all the wives claim they are single moms. Each recieves welfare, child support and housing from the tax payer. The husband doesn’t have to work as he lives off the money the wives get and they do nothing but make more jihadis.

      Families in the maritimes do a similar scan with mom claiming single parent status and getting her rent paid for but she lives in a house owned by the kids dad.

    This is what we get for:
    1. Allowing women into the workforce, and
    2. Giving them free and easy access to contraceptives.

    Abortion is just a drop in the bucket.

    Every day I’m starting to feel more like what a 5th century Roman felt like as the Barbarians were advancing. Something tells me nothing good will come from these new barbarians, not in a miĺenium, not in 10 milleniums. Just one endless dark age, as the planet passes through the heavens as it did in eons past bereft of intelligent life.

    Birthrates are only secondary. Europe’s demographic/social crisis stems from irresponsible policies with regards to immigration and migration more than anything else.

    Japan and other Far East countries that have widely chosen to eschew mass immigration and who refuse to ‘welcome’ all of the largely useless Third World economic migrants aren’t actually doing all that badly.

    I’d be willing try a smaller population base if it meant less Bataclans and 911s

    Also, it is quite obvious from current trends that many of the immigrants we presently welcome will be utterly redundant, due to technology, in only 10 or 15 years time, and that redundancy applies even to highly educated, White-Collar immigrants.

    We don’t need you, we don’t want you.

    Please go away

    We will need another world war to turn this around. One where we once again crush the enemy of mankind. This time it will be death cultists and their pets on the left.
