What’s Wrong With This Quote?

“The long-term prospect—the type of country our grandchildren and great grandchildren will struggle to live in—should drive the programs, policies, and objectives of our leading immigration-reform organizations. And the type of country future generations of native-stock Americans will inherit rests on this maxim: demography is destiny! (If for no other reason than that the races vote systematically differently, and current immigration policy is driving the U.S. further to the left.)

Opposing mass illegal and legal immigration, multiculturalism, and diversity while disregarding the role of race and ethnicity—above all in establishing the criteria for immigrant selection—is largely why we’re in the mess we’re in. It is the equivalent of not only misdiagnosing a patient but prescribing the wrong treatment—treating someone who has advanced throat cancer with Listerine.

The way out of this mess (if there is a way out) will depend on a multifaceted long-term strategy. A sizable increase in white birthrates; stripping out the incentives for non-traditional immigrants to relocate to the U.S.; reversing the cultural pollution of our “entertainment industry”, which promotes diversity, multiculturalism and white demoralization—all would make for a good start.”

  1. Demographics are important, but white culture isn’t synonymous with Biblical culture at our current point in U.S. history, so I’m not sure how much it would help things at this point to have white people bearing more children.

    Until the apostasy rate of Christian children reduces from the 70%-90% (by soph. year of college) it is currently at, no demographic strategy in the world is going to make much good out of this country’s future.

  2. Joshua,

    Do you have a source for that child apostasy rate?

    I agree with you that white people bearing more children won’t automatically fix the problem, but I also agree with the writer that when you’re in a hole the first thing to do is to quit digging. We have to alter immigration patterns, we have to battle multi-culturalism, and we have to attack the entertainment industry that mocks Christian thinking. And if we do all that and don’t keep our youth we are just spinning our wheels.

    Finally, it is true that white culture isn’t synonymous with Biblical culture. That is sad, because there was a time in the not to distant past, that the closest thing you could find to biblical culture was culture that was built by Europeans. As you say … those times are gone.

  3. The figure comes from a Barna poll cited in Voddie Baucham’s book, Family-Driven Faith. I haven’t been able to locate the exact Barna poll, and I don’t have Baucham’s book to check its footnotes.

    I agree with the article’s assessment of the stupidity of multiculturalism and open-arm immigration. All education is indoctrination, and if we don’t educate immigrants into our culture, then we run the risks of being indoctrinated into theirs, or pushed out entirely.

    If I were to amend the quotation I would say that Reformed Christians need to procreate and/or adopt abandoned children at a high rate and catechize their children as faithfully as possible.

  4. Daniel,

    Effects is the correct word, if you were intending to indicate objective results as opposed to a subjective reaction.

    Yes, I do believe that our faithfulness to Christ makes a difference upon our survival as a nation. Christ is the King over all Kingdoms, and He suffers injustice only as a means toward His own glory, which, given the Biblical examples, always results in either mass destruction or mass repentance (and sometimes both, though not in the same order or at the same time).
