“New Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori recently told the New York Times that her fellow Episcopalians are proudly not procreating so as to spare the environment.
“The Presiding Bishop was asked how many Episcopalians there are in the U.S. ‘About 2.2 million,’ Schori responded. ‘It used to be larger percentage-wise, but Episcopalians tend to be better-educated and tend to reproduce at lower rates than some other denominations.’
“ ‘Aren’t Episcopalians interested in replenishing their ranks by having children?’ the New York Times asked.
“ ‘No,’ Schori replied. ‘It’s probably the opposite. We encourage people to pay attention to the stewardship of the Earth and not use more than their portion.’
“True to Schori’s boast, the Episcopalians have done magnificently in reducing their numbers and, purportedly, sparing the Earth the ravages of an enlarged Episcopalian presence.”
