QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders and ask our readers: What do you think? Agree? Disagree? This is the place to state your opinion. Please, let’s keep it respectful – but at the same time, we encourage readers to examine the ideas of Quiverfull honestly and thoughtfully.
Reb Bradley from his book “Born Liberal Raised Right: How to Rescue America from Moral Decline – One Family at a Time” Chapter 9
The PC police strive to shield the weak from hurt feelings by placing restrictions on the strong. But is that wise?
Don’t we learn from nature that it is best to strengthen the weak rather than shield them forever? An athlete grows stronger and better prepared for challenges by constantly facing them. Our bodies only develop antibodies to disease by encountering germs. Calluses only form to protect our soft tissue because of constant abrasion. Are we not harming the “vulnerable” in our society—weakening their immune systems, you might say—by merely sheltering them from influences that can make them grow? Isn’t it obvious that the protectiveness of political correctness makes the weak weaker and preoccupies a culture with its wounds?
Those who own political correctness — liberals — are weak and lack emotional resilience. This is because when they were young, their parents obviously came to the rescue whenever another child upset them, and they were defended from anyone in authority who tried to hold them accountable. Instead of growing up emotionally resilient and socially strong, they grew up with a huge chip on their shoulder, hypersensitive to any perceived offenses.
So, is it best to protect the weak or strengthen them? Let’s help them grow strong. This December, join me in taking every opportunity to publicly wish someone Merry Christmas. Who knows, maybe they’re like you, but just need permission to say what’s on their heart.
