Gotta Love Pat

You just gotta love Pat Robertson, dontcha? I mean, every time he speaks, he gives me new reason to feel like a genius. This time, he is saying that Europe is committing racial suicide due to its declining birth rate. I guess it is important to him to keep the master race around. Its that whole "white man's burden" thing. But, what I loved his reasoning:

ROBERTSON: Studies that I have read indicate that having babies is a sign of a faith in the future. You know, unless you believe in the future, you're not going to take the trouble of raising a child, educating a child, doing something. If there is no future, why do it? Well, unless you believe in God, there's really no future. And when you go back to the existentialism of Jean-Paul Sartre, the whole idea of this desperate nightmare we are in -- you know, that we are in this prison, and it has no hope, no exit. That kind of philosophy has permeated the intellectual thinking of Europe, and hopefully it doesn't come here. But nevertheless, ladies and gentlemen, Europe is right now in the midst of racial suicide because of the declining birth rate. And they just can't get it together. Why? There's no hope.

In 2003 (latest year that number has been release for), the US fertility rate hit the lowest level since 1990 and one of the lowest in our nations history. I guess by Pat's logic, that tells you something about a Republican controlled government... No hope.

What?!?! It is his logic, not mine.

He has some issues, beyond what I can even try to explain. I am Catholic, and think there is hope. But I have friends that are not religious, they find this "hope" in relationships, and within their children.

I do remember a few months ago reading an article where certain countries in Europe really are having HUGE birth rate LOWS.

He is basing his theory on facts, it is his theory that is messed up not his facts.
