>Children: blessing or curse

>The climate change fanatics have come a long way

Having large families should be frowned upon as an environmental misdemeanour in the same way as frequent long-haul flights, driving a big car and failing to reuse plastic bags, says a report to be published today by a green think tank.

The article further quotes John Guillebaud who says

The greatest thing anyone in Britain could do to help the future of the planet would be to have one less child.

Compare this to Psalm 121

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD,/
the fruit of the womb a reward./
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior/
are the children of one’s youth./
Blessed is the man/
who fills his quiver with them!

Now I don’t have any desire to tell people how many children to have nor do I think the number of children produced correlates to righteousness; some people have chosen singleness for the sake of Christ. But when a philosophy contradicts Scripture you know that the philosophy is in error. The false conclusions of this group do not disprove anthropomorphic global warming but they definitely cast it in a negative light.

    >Great post. The people at the root of the new green movement are anti-human.
