19. Pope will be pissed at this
I was going to post on this topic - there's a piece Benedict wrote out there called "caritas in veritate" - where he discusses poverty and man's social relationships. It reads like a democratic manifesto. It's a sensitive treatment of society/man/financial responsibility. Not liking Abramic traditions myself, I was wondering what the good man felt about overpopulation, which strikes me as a looming tsunami. Then he delivers. Several chapters and paragraphs in, our Pope Benedict states that poor populations have lifted themselves out of poverty by reproducing. So, alot of people = less poverty.
Whether the fellow is just that dense, or this is a way of keeping woman in the 'breeder' mold escapes me. Reading this piece is like listening to Bach and then dropping down to flutaphones for 4th graders when he gets into populations. Blew me away.
Calling birth control a human right will send thinkers like him over the edge.
This piece is great. Thanks for posting. Thank-you U.N.
