Life is about money. That is the underlying belief here. And it’s disturbing.
Materialists believe you can just throw money at a situation to fix it. The problems are much deeper than money. It’s lifestyle. It’s about beliefs. It’s about how you view the world. It’s about faith, culture, and love.
Human beings are not simply material. They are spiritual beings as well. But the left only sees and deals with the material. This plan will not work. It will not raise the birth rate in any significant way and it will not lower infants mortality rates.
Say, my wife and I had five children in the Philadelphia area. We never got squat from anybody. I guess we should’ve waited.
Daily Mail: Pregnant women in Philadelphia will be paid $1,000 a month as part of a trial program hoping to lower infant mortality rates in the city.
Starting next year, 250 expectant mothers will receive the no-strings-attached payments from their third month of pregnancy through their baby’s first birthday.
The pilot program, known as the Philly Joy Bank, will operate in the areas of the city with the highest rates of low birth weights — Cobbs Creek, Strawberry Mansion and Nicetown-Tioga.
Of the ten most populated cities in the US, Philadelphia has the highest rate of infant mortality.
The scheme also comes amid a baby bust across America that is seeing fewer women than ever having children, amid changing family values.
In fact, this is the problem. Government handing out money is the problem. Won’t this actually encourage more single motherhood? So is it really helping or making the problems in our country worse?

So money doesn’t matter. I take it you see no reason that churches should be exempt from taxes, then.
Or is this just a case of “damned if you do, damned if you don’t”, and you were going to complain regardless?
Don’t give a bad justification for why you don’t like Philly. Nobody needs an excuse for that!
