Evangelicals Don’t Get It: Having More Than Two Children is a Sin

“A majority of Americans in a new survey reject the idea that society is better off if marriage and procreation are prioritized. However, white evangelicals – who often hold more traditional views on the issue – think just the opposite.

The Pew Research Center survey found that only 34 percent of U.S. adults believe society is better off if ‘people make marriage and having children a priority,” while 64 percent believe society is ‘just as well off if people have priorities other than marriage and children.’

Yet among white evangelicals, 56 percent say society is better off with marriage and procreation being prioritized, while 41 percent say other priorities are fine.”

When Jehovah commanded Adam & Eve to “be fruitful and multiply”, it made perfect theological and evolutionary sense, if human beings were to survive as a species, an exponential growth spurt from day one was a biological necessity.

The first couple living in a pristine world could afford to procreate like rabbits without feeling a tinge of guilt, but today people living in an overpopulated and polluted world should think twice before bringing another child into this godforsaken world.

Americans get it, a life focused on getting married and having children is no longer a moral imperative. The opposite is true, a moral couple will take their financial situation and a surging world population into account, before having one or at the most two children.  

Evangelicals on the other hand are living in an alternate reality, where a woman’s greatest achievement is bearing children, and birthing a lot of little polluting monsters is somehow a good thing.

Once again, evangelicals are on the wrong side of history. Evolution doesn’t always get everything right, or else evangelicals would embrace birth control, be in favor of a woman’s right to choose, and stop having so many damn children
