(WorldNetDaily.com) - "May we live long and die out" is the unofficial motto of a new movement that seeks to improve the Earth's ecosystem by ensuring that the human species does not survive.THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: The writing as been on the wall for decades. When you look at the following, we all should have seen it coming....

- wide availability of artificial birth-control and how it's pushed on children in public schools,
- legalization and public funding of abortion-on-demand,

- and the falling birthrate among Americans and Canadians.
- Environmentalists have pressured the U.S. Congress to pass laws restricting any new drilling for oil on American soil.
- Environmentalists has pressured the U.S. Congress to pass strict regulations limiting the amount of oil refineries can produce.
- As a result, the United States has become almost totally dependent on foreign oil.
- As foreign oil sources tighten their grip on the market, the price of oil goes up.
- As the price of oil goes up, so does the price of everything else, including food.
- Thus poor people in the third-world starve.
- The increased price of oil causes industrialized nations (like the United States) to invest in biofuels.
- Biofuels consume farmland, and restrict the amount of food that can be produced, thus driving the price of food up higher.
- So more poor people in the third-world starve.
- To correct all of these problems, which extreme environmentalists ultimately created, thy offer us a solution -- voluntary genocide.
In contrast, the words of Pope Benedict XVI ring out with such clarity. (read more here) The pontiff advocates a more reasonable and compassionate form of environmentalism. (Perhaps we should just call it "conservationism.") In the pope's version, changes are made in our daily lives to conserve energy and find new ways of making energy, but NOT at the expense of hurting people. (Or advocating self-genocide!) The effects of our changes should be carefully weighed, to make sure the poor in third-world nations are not adversely affected by it.
We should have known environmentalism would eventually come to this. Any philosophy that puts the needs of a tree over the needs of our fellow man is inherently flawed and ultimately irrational. I suppose the best we can hope for is that this movement will only take off among the radical environmentalists, and then maybe, just maybe, we can finally be rid of them (and their insanity) within a generation or so.
