Well I'll be!
According to the Vatican, Muslims outnumber Catholics for the first time since the time of the Prophet.
It is not that Catholicism is in decline, far from it, in fact.
Rather, it seems those of the Islamic faith are better at producing babies than Catholics are.
I have heard that Mark Steyn has got himself into a spot of bother in Canada for pointing this out in Maclean's Magazine. Not about Catholics you understand but about westerners in general. Catholics do rather better than non Catholics in this regard.
I wonder if the Canadian human rights commission will take on the Vatican.
When I was a kid I heard it said, maybe people still say it that the Pope opposes birth control so that Catholics would out breed everyone else. It seems they are not.
Whatever, it is quite clear that Oregon's "pregnant man" aside, the people who will inherit the earth will not be those of a liberal bent.
What will tomorrow bring I wonder?
Postscript: March is the breeding season for Hares in the northern hemisphere, from whence the phrase "Mad as a March hare" is originates.
Make of that what you will.
