MELINDA GATES TAKES ON THE POPE & CATHOLIC’S BREEDING PLANS WITH I.T DOLLARS
Belinda Gates work on social engineering: “It’s being billed as a major smack-down: prominent Catholic laywoman versus the pope. Melinda Gates, Microsoft founder Bill Gates’ wife and one half of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, “disagrees with the Vatican on the use of contraceptives,” according to the Guardian newspaper. With the British government, the foundation this week sponsored a London Summit on Family Planning designed to provide 120 million women in the world’s poorest countries with access to contraceptives by 2020. Gates pledged $560 million for the effort.
“Of course I wrestled with this,” Gates told the newspaper.
Choice is perhaps a noble thing. Although in nations of excessive consumption it is a bit rich to fear not having enough for you and your own kids, all the while not wanting to share with other people. Gates campaign occurs during the worst stint of inequality and greed from the world’s wealthy since the 1930′s. The Catholic Church now numbers 1 billion plus people in the world, three times that of the USA’s population. 80% more than Facebooks declared online audience numbers too and 300 million peope shy of India and China’s populations.
From a safe sex perspective in an age of social media, I’m totally on Belinda’s side though. Contraceptives are needed if you observe IT trends. However, under Melinda’s proposed funding scheme, people like Oprah Winfrey would never have happened in the world. Food for thought among fellow billionaires today.
