NLQ Question of the Week: Why is ‘Home Birth’ so Promoted as the Godly Way?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.One thing we've seen here at NLQ in both the stories told by some of our writers and in the words of cultural enforcers of Quiverfull such as Debi Pearl and Nancy Campbell is a dislike or disdain for giving birth in the hospital.

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.Com - Biblical Human Rights vs. American Human RightsEditor's note: There is just so much sheer awfulness here it's hard to pick out the worst part to quote so I'm using his summation. But be sure to read the entire blog posting. He's even claiming because slavery was mentioned in the Bible that it's a-okay for humans to own other humans as slaves.
