religious homily - interesting prespective can anyone agree or defend this?

got dragged to a church - had to listen to a missionary priest give a speech and his point was social security and why its going bankrupt in the USA - His main points were its going bankrupt because of contraception and abortion and the fact that we are not creating as many children as we used to -

If we DID create as many children they would be more workers paying into social security so we can take care of seniors in their older years.

What do you think of this message?

    That's quite a view point to put forth in the name of God and freedom of speech, but it is one perspective. I would take issue with it because the facts here are larger than anyone wants to admit. SS would be going bankrupt regardless because it was established upon a false premise to begin with, and then plundered so the trust fund never happened & it's only maintained because we continue to buy the lie and support it because all are afraid to admit the truth.

    Actually it's only a symptom of what is happening to our entire monetary system for which no one is willing to assume responsibility so we just kick the can further down the road. I think it also interesting to note that even if our aborted children had been allowed to come, they would fill about the same amount of jobs our illegal aliens fill now, thus the level of funding isn't any different. What does affect it most is the fact that high unemployment coupled with low interest rates also contribute to lower input rates which worsen it's rate of support in spite of all of the above.

    Why blame a certain perspective just to make a point?

    That's like saying the human population will die out because of homosexuals since they can't reproduce.
