Too Scared to Have Kids Because of Climate Change

While many liberals say no to having kids as a “pro-choice” decision, a group of about 60 British women and men have banded together and vowed not to have children as an environmental response.

The movement, called BirthStrike, founded by 33-year-old Blythe Pepino, has decided “not to bear children due to the severity of the ecological crisis and the current inaction of governing forces in the face of this existential threat.”

Group member Alice Brown says, “I am depressed every day because of the ecological crisis and I’m terrified of passing this burden on to a child . . . I’m 24 and instead of dreaming about my career and family, I’m burdened with the disease we’ve created. My decision not to have a child I truly feel is a necessity not a choice.”

This hopelessness brought on by the fear of an overwhelming impending extinction-level event is what can happen when humanism as the basis of one’s belief system fails. But when our hope is in the providence of a sovereign God who loves the world He created, denying His creational mandate to be fruitful and multiply cannot be the answer.

Indian Man Plans to Sue in Strange Birth-Without-Consent Case

Mumbai businessman Raphael Samuel, 27, plans to bring a lawsuit against his parents, who are both lawyers, claiming that he never gave them consent to be born and asking to be paid for the rest of his life for the trouble of dealing with life’s “suffering.”

Though he admits consent cannot be determined with an unborn child, he says he owes his parents nothing because it wasn’t his decision to be born.

Sound crazy? Well, not to an anti-natalist, who believes life is so miserable that procreation should stop. Says Samuel, who can be seen on YouTube with fake beard and sunglasses, “There’s no point to humanity. So many people are suffering. If humanity is extinct, Earth and animals would be happier. They’ll certainly be better off. Also, no human will then suffer. Human existence is totally pointless.”

Even stranger, his mother admires her son for the lawsuit. In her statement, Kavita Karnad Samuel says, “I must admire my son’s temerity to want to take his parents to court knowing both of us are lawyers . . . I’m very happy that my son has grown up into a fearless, independent-thinking young man. He is sure to find his path to happiness.”

So far Samuel has not found a lawyer to take up his case.

Disneyland to Hold First ‘Pride’ Event in Paris

While Disney’s American theme parks in Florida and California have hosted “Gay Day” events since as early as 2007 and Disneyland Paris has held unofficial gay-friendly events since 2014, on June 1, Disneyland Paris will host Disney’s first official “Magical Pride” event to honor Gay Pride Month. The event encourages patrons to “dress like a dream, feel fabulous and experience Walt Disney Studios Park like never before—loud, proud, and alive with all the colors of the rainbow.”

Disney’s upcoming film Jungle Cruise will feature an openly homosexual character for the first time. The film is slated for an October release.

Brazil’s New President Vows to Turn Around Moral Collapse

Jair Bolsonaro was recently sworn in as Brazil’s president. In his presidential remarks, Bolsonaro, a Christian, boldly proclaimed, “I place myself before the whole nation, on this day, as the day in which the people began to liberate itself from socialism, from the inversion of values, from big government, and from political correctness.”

He chose Damares Alves, a like-minded Christian leader, as his new minister for Women, the Family, and Human Rights. The staunchly pro-life Alves vowed to stop abortions and to “do away with the abuse of ideological indoctrination” in the form of gender ideology that LGBT activists had been pushing in public schools.

Let’s pray for this new, bold man of God and his successful leadership. We can also pray that those Christians numbered among our political leaders would be so bold in their commitment to stand for life and God’s design for human sexuality.

Church of England Celebrates Birthday Party for Muhammad and Jesus

A Church of England congregation in Kingston upon Thames held an interfaith celebration for Muhammad and Jesus at the beginning of December.

But Adrian Hilton, publisher of one of the U.K.’s most popular political and highest-ranking religion blogs, said, “Muhammad gets his prophethood, while Jesus gets neither his prophethood nor his priesthood; neither his kingship nor his messiahship. It’s the exalted Prophet Muhammad along with plain old Jesus, because to have added any of his claims to divinity would, of course, have alienated many Muslims.”

Earlier in the year, Westminister Abbey conducted two interfaith meetings with Muslims. Leo Hohmann, World Net Daily news editor, warns Christians about the danger of this kind of interfaith movement: “Allowing the Quran to be read inside a church is the equivalent of the ancient Israelites setting up an image of a false god in the Holy of Holies.”
