Message of Hope

A reader sent through the following article. I think if we can get through the next few years, we have a bright future ahead of us...

How Darwinism will create a conservative dynasty in America

For a glimpse of a nation's future, said Phillip Longman in Foreign Policy, pay a visit to Seattle and Salt Lake City. Seattle, a city of highly educated progressives, " has 45 percent more dogs than children." Traditional Salt Lake has “19 percent more kids than dogs." It's a striking pattern, found throughout the U.S. and Europe — and it will have profound implications for what kind of societies we'll leave for our ancestors. Fertility is now highly correlated to political and religious beliefs. The more progressive and secular you are, the less likely you arc to have a big family; the more conservative and religious you are, the larger your family is likely to be. In religious Utah, for example, the birth rate is 92 children for every 1,000 women, the highest in the nation. By contrast, highly progressive Vermont — the first state to embrace gay unions — has the country's lowest fertility rate, just 51 children per 1,000 women. "Among states that voted for President Bush in 2004, the average fertility rate is 12 percent higher than the rate of states for Sen. John Kerry." Almost 20 percent of American women who came of age in the countercultural 1960s and '70s arc approaching the end of their fertility cycles without reproducing, meaning that millions of progressive feminists are bequeathing "no generational legacy." Whether you like the implications of these numbers are not, the trend is clear: We're headed for "a far more conservative future, one in which patriarchy and other traditional values make a comeback, if only by default."

My pastor always says the same thing, the wicked are on thier own path to destruction. I don't think Darwin has anything to do with it.

We can't leave any type of society for our ancestors...they'll stay dead.

My family must be the exception to the rule. My father came over from Italy with 6 bothers and a sister. He had 3 children. My husband and I have 2 children. We are all quiet conservative. The only main difference in the generations is that we moved away from farming to construction to engineering. I think the larger families are more a result of helping on the farm than just religious and conservative ideals.

This is good news...

Unless we allow our children to be indoctrinated in socialist-promoting public schools.

It is not enough to "have" the children. They must be taught why freedom and self-reliance are better than collectivism and dependency.

Many youth today cannot verbalize a defense of capitalism against socialism or even against communism.

While I am heartened by the news of this posting, Painesright is absolutely correct. (Great name, by the way!)

I cannot tell you how much time I have spent providing context and correcting revisionist history taught to my kids.

And civics and economics are seemingly anachronisms no longer taught by public schools. It is up to conservatives to have and to RAISE our children with knowledge and faith based on accurate history and truth.

Trouble is surveys show younger conservative Americans are not following the bigoted path trod by their forebears...they are far more Libertarian in regards to gays,drugs etc.America is moving slowly towards a secular middleground that will reject both extreme left and right authoritanism.
