People who don’t procreate are selfish, Pope says

A week after telling a crowd that Catholics shouldn’t breed like rabbits, the Pope has seemingly reversed course and called out those choosing to have no children.

Speaking again to a general audience in St. Peter’s Square Wednesday, Pope Francis I said those who do not have children are “selfish” and part of a “greedy generation” for deciding against procreating.

Specifically, he said;

“A society with a greedy generation, that doesn’t want to surround itself with children that considers them above all worrisome a weight, a risk, is a depressed society…The choice to not have children is selfish.  Life rejuvenates and acquires energy when it multiplies: It is enriched, not impoverished.”

Some are saying this seeming reversal is just like the time he claimed that he cannot judge homosexuals then backtracking.

What are your thoughts?
