God’s first commandment to mankind is recorded in Genesis 1:27-28
“27 So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 And God blessed them [granting them certain authority] and said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subjugate it [putting it under your power]; and rule over (dominate) the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and every living thing that moves upon the earth.”
“We have certainly dragged natural generations down to a level that God never intended for it. God created man to reproduce. This is a wonderful, glorious truth, and it is not to be made into a dirty, filthy, slimy thing as man is now doing.” J. Vernon McGee, Thru The Bible, Vol. 1, page 17
Why is procreation important?
Thousands of years before the Ten Commandments, this was the First Commandment from God to mankind. “And God blessed them [granting them certain authority] and said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subjugate it [putting it under your power]; and rule over (dominate) the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and every living thing that moves upon the earth.” Genesis 1:28 Amplified Version
Low birth rates are a problem throughout the world. One does not have to be a genius to understand how a nation will die off if the death rate exceeds the birth rate.
In the 20th century, America lost 116,516 lives in WW1 and 405,399 in WW2. In 1950 at the outset of the Korean War, the birthrate in our country was 24.268 per 1,000 population, a 0.000% growth rate. Source The low growth rate was due to the 521,915 lives lost in two world wars. Source
In 2022, at 12.012 per 1,000 population, the birthrate has halved. Our growth rate, as of June 4, 2022, is presently 0.090%. Source
The fertility rate, the births per woman of childbearing age, to sustain our population is 2.1. The fertility rate was down to 1.64 in 2020.
Gender confusion, transgenderism, and the LGBTQ activism that strives to normalize non-traditional un-biblical human behaviors are contributing to the low birth rate. Rising homosexuality naturally affects the birth rate because it is impossible for a homosexual couple to bear children. A homosexual woman cannot impregnate another homosexual woman and a homosexual man cannot impregnate another homosexual man.
The Judeo-Christian Bible is the historical record for heterogenous marriages. The Bible also contains the laws of God governing marriage and human sexuality.
You haven’t accounted for increased longevity leading to a change in demographic distribution.
Haven’t you noticed that the world is rather full of people?
Non-binary people aren’t the problem.
The global population is actually in decline due to low birth rates. Here is one of many resources for you: https://www.macrotrends.net/countries/WLD/world/birth-rate
The next world war will be devasting to every country on the face of the earth.
The USA had a good birth rate in 1950 but the effect in USA population was 0.000%. That good birthrate was not enough to offset the American war dead.
Non-binary??? Have you a word from a dictionary to substitute for your hyphenated phrase?
And New Jersey, despite its high-density population, remains the Garden State with lots and lots of room for people.
WW3 is inevitable. I don’t want it. It will not be fun, and it won’t be “over there”; it will be right here.
The Japanese people practiced small families for many years. It’s now a dying nation. The ratio of elderly to youth is unsupportable so the Japanese set about creating all manner of robotics to replace traditional laborers and to care for the elderly.
God commands us to procreate. Failing this one commandment spells doom for any society.
Gordon Chang, perhaps the foremost authority on Communist China, has calculated the end of China due to low birth rate. Couples can have multiple children but it’s too late. Mr. Chang’s book is available from Amazon.

The central idea of my post is homosexual couples do not procreate.
It’s not true that homosexual people do not procreate.
