My initial reactions:
- The uncited "research" doesn't even relate to the wild leaps of "logic" in the voiceover. ("There's no economic model to support...") I guess just saying "research" once at the beginning lends a air of legitimacy to the rest of the video.
- Fewer babies = better market for labor! Doesn't sound ALL bad. (Also, we are currently over-populated, so declining population is environmentally-friendly.)
- Some European nations are addressing declining birth rates in an interesting way: paid maternity and paternity leave for an entire year, if I recall correctly. So Mom can take off year 1, Dad takes off year 2, then you can start all over with another baby. That policy would convince me to have another baby if I were on the fence! (I think Canada also has a year of paid maternity leave.)
- What this video really is is racist. A pure call for white American Christians to have lots and lots and lots of kids. Who's behind the video? Probably some class project at Oral Roberts or similar.
- I admit that I'm not that much of an activist. If I did suddenly find myself in a Taliban-run society I'd cram on my burka faster than the gal next to me. But, even IF America became a Muslim majority country it would still be America. Land of the free, home of the brave, etc. It's awfully hard to ditch an entire Constitution and remake a country. It is possible, however, that in the future some of the free and brave might not be white Christians.
- That said, even knowing what I was getting into, I found the video well-made and powerful.
- I don't find militant fundamentalist Muslims much scarier than militant fundamentalist Christians, frankly.
- Wanna know a great way to make Islam more exciting and enticing to young Americans? Make it into the counter-culture. Make it something forbidden, scaaaaary, bad like the Beatles, man.
- It's an interesting idea that we must spread Christianity through breeding. I don't recall that message from the Bible. Whatever happened to evangelism?
