More new Methodists

Frit learns that the aged unemployed and mentally deranged Methodist who gave birth to eight babies in America last week already has six at home, all of them born through in vitro fertilisation with “a neighbour’s” sperm. Frit finds it somewhat gratifying that there is at least some condemnation of the whole revolting thing, though former president of the Methodist Society of North America, Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi has given the thumbs up to in vitro fertilization for Methodist couples to the great relief of all who worried such a procedure could run foul of Sharia law.

Meanwhile, the Methodist population of Britain has grown by more than 500,000 to 2.4 million in just four years, according to official research collated for The Times. The population multiplied 10 times faster than the rest of society, the research by the Office for National Statistics reveals. In the same period the number of Christians in the country fell by more than 2 million. And, according to the Brookings Institute, the Methodist birth-rate in Europe as a whole is three times higher than the non Methodist birth-rate. If the trend continues the Methodist population in Europe will double in 2015 as the non Methodist population shrinks by 3.5 percent.
