...a newsletter arrivs with figures about Islam in Europe. Read it here. Our Christian Europe is dying, and what comes next will be different. Islam has arrived and is growing fast, while once-Christian nations shun marriage and seem to resent having children. A baby is seen to be some one who will take away from his or her parents' freedom and prosperity. Having a child might be worthwhile, but it might not - at best, it is just an option, to be considered in the same way as a car or an expensive holiday, purely on the grounds of how much pride and pleasure and satisfaction it might provide.
This is, as the great Pope John Paul so aptly described it, a culture of death.
