Quoting Quiverfull: Quiverfull Adherents Not Christians?

by Joe Furches of Examiner.com – Former member of the “Quiverfull” movement talks about her journey to Atheism

Pastor Gervase Nicholas Edward Charmley, a frequent commentator on “Fighting for the Faith,” said this in their response to Vykie’s story:

“[Quiverfull appears to be] a group that by any objective, historical measure, was never a Christian church, but some small and heterodox sect.

“In the case of [Vyckie], given that her views led to her effectively leaving the church before becoming an atheist, she had long ago parted company with Biblical Christianity.”

(Editorial note: Yes, this is NLQ’s Vyckie Garrison that is being discussed in Examiner.com)
