yes, the statement about the Europeans disturbed me also. The ignorance of such a comment has to be from an 'ugly' american. Should the Europeans strive to be like the USA which has less than 5% of the Earth's population and creates 25% of the world's pollution for the same reasons the person used to criticize the Euros?! 'selfish', nihilistic' etc. Of course not. Such nonsense has be the dogma of fundamentalists. The audacity to expect the rest of the world to stand by and allow that mentality to be considered 'benevolent' is just as absurd.

The argument that the Christian world [whether or not the fact that very few actually practice anything at all] needs to keep on with some 'birth-rate' contest is really sickening. After all, nowadays [in the USA] - most of the children in this society are born unwanted by the parents. Out of wedlock, divorce rates at 50% etc. So spare us the diatribe on how just & morally mighty we are. As far as the muslim population goes - well over half are in the 3rd world; poor to no education; maybe if they're very lucky - they have regular electricity. The threat has been established [they want to emmigrate to better their materialist desires - for them and their family] and the cure is to make it unbearable for them to sustain the belief. Tax it or outlaw it - TO DEATH!
