It seems that religions
are the same as any organism
. They evolve
the same way. The strongest survives and spreads, and continually changes to promote it's own existance.
For instance Mormons
were encouraged to have multiple wives
, and often had well over a dozen children. The more babies, the more followers of their religion
. I think that's part of pro-life
too, although as an order from higher up, not at the individual follower level.
Or certainly more appropriate, come to think of it, is religions which refuse the use of contraceptives
. Sex is fun
, there's really no preventing it
. So refuse contraceptives
for some dumb reason, and they're guaranteed to have a bunch of children. Voi-la
, the religion lives on.
