An Unlikely Source Debunks the Latest Overpopulation Myths

To me, those who raise the alarm about overpopulation sound like flat-earthers. Overpopulation is a myth from the 1970s, when there were 3.7 billion people and the myth was used to predict all sorts of catastrophes, including the starvation of hundreds of millions of people. It was also used to justify measures like abortion, eugenics, and sterilization. And yet, here we are in 2017 with a population over 7 billion, and none of the doomsday predictions have come true.

Pope Smacks Obama’s Knuckles on Religious Liberty

In the most nakedly political encounter between a Pope and a President I have ever seen, Pope Francis used his first meeting with President Obama to smack the most powerful man in the world’s knuckles on the urgent unfolding religious liberty crisis in the U.S. And then the Holy Father gently caressed his other cheek by praising President Obama on climate change.
