Go green and stop being so fruitful

You’ve probably heard that the newest way to be green is by limiting the number of children you have. Well, now it’s imperative for Christians. That’s right: It’s no longer be fruitful and multiply. At least, not if I’m to believe an email I received yesterday from Jesus@aol.com:

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, in 1915 the world’s population was just 1.8 Billion people. In 2009 the world’s population is 6.8 Billion people. In the past 94 years the world’s population has increased by 5 Billion people. That’s only one lifetime. In 500 years that will be 25 Billion people. If there is poverty, starvation, global warming and a hole in the ozone layer now, what do you think it will be like in 500 years? Man is literally destroying the earth and himself by over populating. Save your generations from suffering a miserable and horrible end. Stop creating and if you have children tell them when they grow up not to create. Please help spread this message to the entire world.


I’ve yet to confirm the authenticity of the email sender.
