    1. Hmmm...it's deep and he is right but...some people are better off not having children. Parenthood in my opinion is a vocation and you have to be called to it because you need aboundace of LOVE and sacrifice to do it. I am sure he captures what I have said but it's unfortunate that our civilisation has take away some of these inherent human nature in some of us.

    2. I agree that having kids make you more humane.
      There are people who have changed for the better when they set their eyes on their babies...the innocence of a child brings joy that even money cannot buy.
      Sometimes I can be sad and my daughter will say something that will make me laugh for days

  2. So he rather people adopt these kids and not give an actual fuck about them leaving them to vices which may include their caretakers?

    Pets are more for companionship, abating loneliness and not in a million miles the same as being in charge of a human life.

    3. Read with love Persian because he spoke out of love and considered all facts up there parenting is a risk valuing pets over having children is even more riskier, sex was meant for procreation, the cost of having a pet to take care of in abroad is quite similar to the cost of taking care of a child be it biological or adopted, he is referring to couples who prefer having pets but yet have sex and prevent procreation of even refused to adopt but rather spend money on caring for the pets, showing immense love for the pet than even a child, some even willing their properties to the pet when they die, that itself is riskier because when we die we will account for every actions.

    4. God bless you anon
      They show love to this pets when there a children out there who need this love and attention.
      It risky yes but it's worth it, you spend money on both why not spend money on a human being.

      Your comment is beautiful

    5. Thank you Anon 14:05 for putting it in the right perspective for Perxian.

      Animals have their own animal world and procreate yet some human beings would rather treat animals better than their fellow human or a child. 😌

    1. It's buhari that values animals more than human being
      Oyibo values human life so much and knows what it costs to raise a child in the right way
      So when they know they can't afford to raise children they decide not to have them.

    2. Bianca, listen to those who LIVE there. Oyinbos value animals like no man's business.

    3. Don't mind Bianca Bruno. They treat coloured people badly and elevate animals as if they are human.

      What do you call that?

  4. How about justice and compensation for the many many children molested and raped by pedophiles hiding in priestly raiments?

    Protecting pedophiles leads to a loss of humanity and is a detriment to civilization.

      I concur TOTALLY with your comment.

  5. Hmmmm, Pope, I am a Catholic and igbo to boot.
    I got married and have a child. Love her with every fibre of my being and I do everything for her. She comes 1st (after God) in all my considerations.
    Having said this, if I knew the realities of raising a child before I had her, I'd never have ventured down this path. Some really trying days, I feel like giving her up to someone who really enjoys motherhood and its ilks.
    When they say it takes a village to raise a child, they mean a *literal* village. I have never been so tired in my life. I hear it gets easier as they grow older and I'm looking forward to that time. And yes, it's just the 1 for me, thanks.
    A dog or cat, even from infancy have more independence than a child. A child wants to be carried or held most times, they require constant vigilant supervision and physical guidance at all times. They take every bit of you and still require more.
    I have completely forgotten what life was like before her.
    Mentally and physically, it is so draining. Less so than the financial aspects.
    Is it when they are ill, being pricked for blood test, have catarrh or cough as an infant, malaria scares, vommitting, colic, sleepless crankiness, emotionally vulnerable, picky eating, sensitive skin, willfullness in decision making or listening?
    What part do I want to experience again? The chemical imbalance of pregnancy? The pain of delivery? The rigours of breastfeeding and weaning? The daily and consistent neediness?
    Please no, count me out!
    Wish I had never met her father, fallen in love or gotten married. Societal expectations be damned!
    Live well, do good (however you can) and be happy.
    God only wants us to love Him and serve Him. That's what will merit us grace and Heaven.

    1. Godbless you for this write-up,being a parent is tasking physically,financially and even emotionally. The plain truth is not everyone is cut out for it. Some people havnt finished sorting out their own lives,they are so damaged psycologically themselves. Some are dealing with mental health issues,past traumas,sexual abuse and cant even take care of themselves and you want them to raise a healthy happy child. Its the reason we have so many messed up angry adults.
      I actually respect women like Oprah that make that decision and said having children was not for her. Her life,Her Choice. If you cant be a PRESENT parent,pls skip being a parent.

    2. 10.28 I FEEL you. Trust me, I feel you and I want so much to give you a hug so tight you will know without doubt that you will be fine. I promise. Thank you for being sincer and your comment captures what many are afraid to admit. I felt everything you wrote up there except the regret, in fact I have done it twice and want a 3rd.
      Please, for all its worth, I beg you to do your best and enjoy each stage no matter the challenges attached. Your daughter is here, you can't send her back and don't let God hear you have regrets having her😊. 1 child is absolutely ok but I don't think His Holiness was referring to people like you in his speech.
      Easy, my dearest. One day at a time.

    3. Wow guess you haven't taken care of a pet before, no be all those local things we do here in Nigeria over there if you treat your dog or pet like the way we do here that person will be arrested and pay a fine, in abroad you treat your pet the same way you treat a child the same thing you said up there even when the pet is sick they even perform surgery on them, so he is right in what he said, abi you fall from heaven? Your mama no train you ? She dey complain the way you dey do now? That's the selfishness he is talking about nothing is easy ok;schooling where you have to read and 'crack your brain's to working which is same thing, so you as a mum should appreciate your role and be happy in taking part in bringing up a child and not complain over it others have lots of kids and even pets join sef plus working and schooling on top yet they did everything with happiness and love because every power comes with responsibility, your ability to bring a being into these world is your power! Life ain't a bee of roses so we must live it and account for it when we die.

  7. I don't agree. Many children are suffering because their parents or guardians are people who have no business raising a child. People should be allowed to make their own decisions, just as he took his own decision not to get married or have kids

    5. 12:40 is actually righ. You people should free Pope. He has spoken truth.

      After all, it is our Maker that ordained procreation to replenish the earth.

      Animals and even plants bear seed after their own kind
      Have you seen animals adopting humans?

      Human beings always using their foolishness to go against God's ordained Will.

      That's how they introduced perversion natural man-woman relationship.πŸ™„

  8. Some of you are simply probably disagreeing to this truth because it wasn't said by Daddy GO. I am not a Catholic, but when
    I see the Truth, no matter who said it, I acknowledge it as the Truth. Pope has said the truth. And a lot of these kids that
    are denied care end up as armed robber and prostitutes (that will rob you of you valuables, lives and probably snatch husbands).
    This is the consequences of the denial of the "spiritual care" that this pope is talking about.

    3. Anon 11:23

      You admitted that there are lots of kids without care. So why is that? Mostly because their parents were not equipped/capable/ready to have kids but had them anyway. And now those kids have become a problem.
      This should tell you that not every adult is ready or capable of raising responsible children. Wouldn't you prefer they don't? It's ironic you're claiming people should stop being selfish by taking care of those kids & not admitting why those kids exist in the first place. You can't force people to be responsible. Some people are very broken & have no business raising kids. Some others are just not interested. Whether u call it selfish or what not, you are creating more problems by forcing people to have kids that they have no business raising. It will only end up in this vicious cycle of negative societal issues.

      Simple solution, those who are capable should adopt the kids. Devote the resources you use to acquire and train those pets to training those kids.

    6. Lily Lane and co bvs, soon animals will take over human population while you people are forming wiser than God .


      How many of you have animals adopted or taken care of ?

      God gave human beings natural instincts to care for their own kind.

    7. @14:28
      That's exactly what I mean. Only those who are capable (mentally, emotionally & financially) should have or take care of kids. Not every tom, dick & harry should.

      01:11
      Nobody is forming wiser than God, but God gave us brains for a reason. If you read my statement & only saw rebellion against God, then I leave u with ur IQ.

  9. I don't agree. The responsibilities of raising a child is every different from having a pet. Infact, I applaud those who choose not to have children because they know they don't have the capacity

    1. Naso it's almost similar ok,no be wetin we dey do for Naija ooo, let's take a common example a Dog; you feed your dog the right meal, you bathe your dog, the dog must see a vet yearly, if you are not around you must employ someone to take care of the dog, have you heard of a dog walker before? The expenses of having a dog is much ooo, no be wetin we dey do here oo, in fact if you don't take care of that dog you'll pay a fine and the dog will be taken from you just similar to a child and this is very much obtainable to those who prefer having a pet to a child to the extent they will their properties to the dog when they die, tell me is that not selfishness? Comes with great responsibility and having sex was primarily to procreate and not to have fun with it!

  12. A lot of people in the society are damaged. Too damaged. Walking living people just hurting others. No not everyone should have kids. Too many traumas been passed enough. I would rather more people have pets than keep giving birth to kids they cannot cater to, emotionally, physically, financially and otherwise!

      I bet YOU'VE NOT READ your Bible wwll. Jesus Christ talked about Eunuchs in the New Testament o.

      Some are Eunuchs made by men, some are by choice.

      MATTHEW CHAPTER 19 vs 10-12
      10The disciples said to him, “If this is the situation between a husband and wife, it is better not to marry.”

      11Jesus replied, “Not everyone can accept this word, but only those to whom it has been given. 12For there are eunuchs who were born that way, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by others—and there are those who choose to live like eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it.”

  14. Having and raising kids is not a walk in the park. If I knew exactly what was involved from the onset, I would have had just one. It is mentally, emotionally, physically and financially draining. Parenting never ends even when the kids are all grown up. Honestly, I don't blame people who choose not to have kids.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Parenting requires a selfless consciouness. Adopting is not right for every couple, look at some of the atrocities parents commit against their own natural born children. Plus some people do not have the capacity to love a child they did not birth. We can't force adoption on ppl.

    The foster care system is full of horror stories. It's a big little secret of all the abuse many foster children experience in the system. And those ppl are getting paid to care for those kids and still harm them.

    1. Leave them. Someone up there is talking about "humans have natural instincts for taking care of kids". They leave logic, facts & common sense behind to force ideas on others; Ideas not even grounded on anything. Religiously, God never forced anyone to have kids. Nowhere in the bible does God condemn anyone for not having children.
      I don't know how u will see atrocities happening all round to innocent kids & still insist that everyone is capable of raising kids. The level of silliness blows my mind! But blind religion over common sense is the order of the day
