Revenge of the Christians

I noticed this item in the Deseret News yesterday, but since I didn't have a functioning computer at the time, I wasn't able to blog about it.

It confirms something I've been saying for quite a while now: Children today are more conservative and religious because religious conservatives are the only ones having children. Secular liberals have pretty much given up on procreating (or at least the pregnancy and delivery part of it).

This is producing a demographic shift that is already yielding significant political results. As Mark Steyn is fond of pointing out, President Bush carried 25 of the 26 states with the highest birthrates; John Kerry won the 16 states with the lowest birthrates. Sooner or later, the effect of this disparity will be undeniable.

It is ironic that those who profess to understand Darwinism fail to grasp it's central premise, which is the individuals who reproduce successfully are the ones who determine the future of the population. If you don't have any kids, don't be surprised when those who do are running the show 30 years down the road.
