Is Having Many Children — A Sin?

The General Synod of the Anglican Church believes, it is. They even go as far as equating having children with... stealing:
The Anglican Church wants Australians to have fewer children and has urged the federal government to scrap the baby bonus and cut immigration levels.

The General Synod of the Anglican Church has issued a warning that current rates of population growth are unsustainable and potentially out of step with church doctrine - including the eighth commandment "thou shall not steal", Fairfax newspapers say.
Forget about "go forth and multiply", not to mention Psalm 127 or the Sermon on the Mount. It's the holy Gaia that matters. So the Anglican Public Affairs Commission is calling on the Australian government to scrap baby bonuses.

"If this is true the Anglican Church has gone mad", suggests Matthew Archbold, the author of the Creative Minority Report blog. I can't agree more.

Piss off a lefty, have another child :)
