But why is that a bad thing? Is the end goal just to cover the planet in people and their waste? Breed like cockroaches? Or is there a natural adjustment happening as people become more aware of the impact of more people?

Existence itself starts to sound like a pyramid scheme when you talk about needing to "sign up" more people to keep the economy going as is.

Catholics countries do not have overpopulation problems, most likely the contrary. even Brazil the largest catholic country is now passing the 200 million marks despite being an older country than the US and receiving the bulk of the transatlantic slave trade. (and 4 million Europeans during the late 1800).

Spain, the most rabid catholic county in Europe has been having population issues for 5 decades now, with shrinking population.

No a single catholic country can be said is overpopulated in the Americas.
How do you use birth rate "against" a population? What does that mean? I don't know what you're referring to.

It's considered a bad thing by economists, because the country's equivalent of a Social Security fund will run out of money, and with a small younger generation combined with a large older generation, there's more demand on medical services and so on. It adversely affects the country's economy, because the oldest cohorts are mostly non-productive; they're not contributing to the economy. Instead, they're draining it.

Bad for an economy modeled in such a way, sure. But an ever increasing population is bad for everyone and everything on the planet.

There are many reasons why a new economic model is needed. One that outside all previous boxes.

Here's a solution. South America can import millions of babies from Africa and Southeast Asia, where there is an over-abundance of them. Solve the problems of both continents.

Guatemalas population is exploding. They really do need to control it. The rest of Central America does not seem too bad though.

As a form of slander, to call them uncivilized, low life, irresponsible, drunk Irish.
The British were pretty good as slandering Ireland and Spain for being catholic.
And to present the Irish as lower class, less intelligent as a way to justify their subjugation.
The population of Ireland never passed 8 million, quite less than the UK at the same period of time.

As to Spain the propaganda campaign has been going on for centuries, it even has a name "the black legend".

When this starts to happen then they need to do what other countries do.... attract immigrants from other places to come fill the gap.
Also regarding the growth rate.
Why again do you need the population to grow?
Why can't it just sustain?
Who wants to be tripping over kids everywhere lol !
