Default Throw Away the Birth Control America!

This video reports there has been and will continue to be a demographics problem; not for our immediate generation, but generations soon to come!

Concerned?

A quote found all around the 'net, referencing more than one region as well.

For example: Muammar Gaddafi - Wikiquote

"There are signs that Allah will grant victory to Islam in Europe without swords, without guns, without conquest. we don't need terrorists, we don't need homicide bombers. The 50+ million Muslims [in Europe] will turn it into a Muslim continent within a few decades."

OK. I have to provide a little bit of levity here.

snopes.com: Muslim Demographics

Snopes pretty much chalked this up to alarmist distortion of statistics.

I've been trying to discuss something similar to this every time someone tries to impose religion into government though. If we allow Christianity to control government now because (Christians outnumber other religious beliefs) what's going to happen when Christians are a minority? Are they going to sit idly back while they are forced to observe Muslim traditions?

If nothing else I wish the average Christian would at least entertain that thought when trying to pass legislation that would impose their beliefs or observances on people of other religious beliefs.

For crying out loud! Despite all the stuff I look up at Snopes, this was not one of them. DH forwarded the video. Leave it to me to post it without researching!

Thanks, Ad!

Not in your case, no ... I don't think anyone would dare suggest that!

Have you ever read the book Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis? The reason I ask is because he made this EXACT argument in the book. I find it almost funny when a lot of "well meaning" Christians try and site C.S. Lewis to push toward a Christian Nation because he was very much against this idea.
