bro, who is running out of resources? Do you live in Manhattan or something? The average family only has 2.6 persons per household. That shows that on average, people don't even have an entire child! Just some pieces here and there. Quit with this sterilization sh*t.
Spoken like a close minded American that has never left the country. If you can't handle the topic of conversation, best stay out of it.
You couldn't be more wrong. You should see my passport. It's full of stamps. My mind is open, you are the one that wants to take a dump on people's rights. I am calling you out in return, who is running out of resources? Which ones? How? When? Is this really about Octamom? You know that was a medical anomaly, right? That's why it was on television.

I don't think we have an overpopulation problem. We have a distribution problem, as well as many issues, such as abominable policies that subsidize non-productivity, to name one. Our government pays some farmers not to produce. The gasohol program is another messed up policy. We could generate plenty of grain/food to feed the world. Another problem is distributing it though the many channels that must go through some evil dictatorships and local governing authorities, such as war-lords. Then there is the greed problem. Wayne could lump all this into a "sin" problem, but I'll let him speak for himself. But your going to have problems of some sort as long as various forms of evil persists in the world.
I think it is ludicrous to want to entrust a sterilization program into a government that can't even balance a budget (whose resume includes many other failed policies). I'm sure many of us are cringing at the release of the ACA. Some things just cannot be engineered.
One other thing, it's ridiculous to blame Christianity for all this, but that tactic is not new. Nero burned Christians at the stake, as pretty much scapegoats, blaming them for the societal problems of his day. I'm thinking you guys are better than to fall for his scheme. Evil & Greed has been around since the beginning of time.
Instituting Utopia on earth IMHO is a fleeting pursuit. Do your best in your sphere of influence, and use any God given advantage you have to help someone less fortunate out. It's not complicated.
