This Just In:
Childless millennials have lost the ability to grasp the basic concepts of time and the human lifespan, but should expect to regain that power some time around their 45th birthday at which point they will wish they had reproduced in order to stave off crushing boredom as they wait around to die.
That's not the plot of some Harry Potter and the Mid-Life Crisis fanfic, it's the basic gist of things according to writer/podcaster Shane Morris.
Morris is a "reformed Christian" writer for the Colson Center, which says it "exists to help you understand your place in God's story."
He took to his personal Twitter recently and shared his thoughts on childless millennials.
It didn't go well.
Morris seems to have a lot of ire towards people who choose not to have kids. When his "have kids so they are obligated to hang out with you" stance ended up dragged all over Twitter, he kept digging in.
First, he posted again about how terrible their lives will be without children to visit and care for them—completely ignoring no one is obligated to do that and a large chunk of the elderly who did have children still end up with those children not visiting or caring for them.
Then he decided to try a "crowdsourcing" approach.
The crowd sourced alright.
It sourced hard.
Batting 0 for 3 doesn't seem to be slowing Shane down in the least.
It's been a few days and he is still trying to dig in on this and still getting thoroughly dragged.
