Watchwoman on the Wall

Watchwoman: Instead of hammering on David Beckham and his wife, Victoria, for having four children while married to each other, the overpopulation fanatics should come to the USA and monitor how many illegitimate children the NBA basketball stars have with numerous women they never bothered to marry even once!  Now that would make a story! And guess what, it will never happen!  Why?  I think O’Reilly answered that yesterday more effectively and concisely than I can.  See – “Why is the NY Times and liberal media Demonizing Christianity?” located at: //  God’s first ordinance made for man was first delivered way back at the beginning in Genesis immediately after he created man and woman, He said in [Genesis 1:27-28] So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. [28] And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. Emphasis added.  Satan and his minions, in the spiritual realm and his slaves who live in the flesh on planet earth (men and women) have been seeking to undo all of God’s Commandments and Ordinances, from Genesis 1:28 to today’s date — and they will continue on for all the tomorrows left.  Each of those evildoers will still be repeating their same foolish words to usurp God.  They’ll never stop fighting a war already lost.  They will never stop trying to destroy “the image of God” — which is man and woman who are created in the image of God. ▬ Donna Calvin




Adorning an article in the Guardian is a picture you might think represented a prototypical family: a handsome couple standing behind three healthy, well-grown children. But according to the British paper, the parents — soccer star David Beckham and his wife, Victoria — are to be condemned. The problem is that, with the birth of a fourth child, the Beckhams have become “bad role models and environmentally irresponsible,” writes Guardian scribbler Tracy McVeigh.

In reality, though, the irresponsibility lies with McVeigh.

It’s hard to write an 850-word piece in which virtually every sentence serves to deceive, but McVeigh might have birthed just such an illegitimate bit of childishness. She quotes “campaigners,” environmentalists, a Green MP, and others who all bleat the same message: The sky is falling due to overpopulation. And we’ll all end up languishing in a Soylent Green sewer of endless humanity unless, as zoologist David Attenborough says, we eliminate the “absurd taboo” against discussing family size.

Okay, let’s discuss it.

Attenborough is right: There is a population problem in the world.

It is that birthrates have been collapsing for decades, a phenomenon that has grave implications for society.

Yes, you read that right. Sure, I know what you might have heard, and it’s a result of misinformation like McVeigh’s — and is also why she can get away with peddling such pap. But the truth is that birthrates are below replacement level in more than 70 nations worldwide; among these are not only every country you could call “Western” save New Zealand (where the figure is right at replacement level, 2.1 children per couple), but also all of Eastern Europe and much of Asia. In fact, this demographic demise affects even nations you wouldn’t suspect; for example, while Mexico’s birthrate is still above replacement level, it’s falling at an unprecedented rate. And Uruguay, Kazakhstan, and Algeria have birthrates of, respectively, 1.94, 1.88, and 1.82.
