Quoting Quiverfull: Have Babies Right Away!?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - The Cornerstone of the HomeEditor's Note: Dear Nancy, you know what else is 'immature and irresponsible'? Bringing children into a home that is not financially, emotionally or physically prepared to cope with the additional mouths to feed, large workload and the unique financial challenges of raising children. It's wisdom to make a plan, save money and make sure you are ready before you start shooting out babies. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Cats Are Better Mothers Than Feminists?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Inborn InstinctivenessEditor's note: There are several things about this post that just make my blood boil. 1. The phrase "And she is only an animal." as if the little cat is somehow a lesser being than Nancy and 2. the idea that working mothers that have to leave their children to be nurtured by others are not as maternal as her outdoor kitty. How insulting all the way around! Run, kitty, run! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Blaming Political Losses on You Not Having Enough Babies?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - God Does Not Change His Eternal PlansEditor's note: So it sounds like Nancy is blaming the lack of people being Quiverfull for the fact that very few Teaparty types get elected to office. Get busy cranking out those Godly children so the Quiverfull bunch can easily overwhelm the evul liburuls in the voting booths. Remind me again where it says that Christians are supposed to hijack the political system in order to have their way? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Declining Birth Rates Dooming Children to Huge Future Burdens?

by Shannon Roberts of Mercator.Net - No One is Winning From the World's Lack of Children as renamed and quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Are Your Children Ready For The Future?Editor's note: Is either posting really making a believable point that not increasing the population will harm our children's future? After reading both I'm still not entirely sure what this terrible 'burden' is because of declining birth rates. Typical Evangelical scare tactics to reinforce compliance with extra Biblical rules and submission roles for women, dominance by men. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Sexiest Thing You Can Say To Your Man?

by Doug Johnson from Life Site - The sexiest thing my wife ever said to me...definitely isn't what you think it isEditor's note: This guy has a warped sense of what sexy is. I don't know too many people that would define it the same way and definitely not many men outside of Christian Patriarchy and Quiverfull. Jaw drop. He thinks the sexiest thing his wife said to him was that she'd changed her mind about birth control and wanted her IUD out immediately so they could have more children. There is much in the article that is cringe-inducing, but this might just bet the worst part.... … [Read more...]

Foreword – ‘Be Fruitful & Multiply’ Review

NLQ Book Review of Nancy Campbell's "Be Fruitful & Multiply" by Suzanne TitkemeyerOriginally I was not going to do a chapter of my review on the foreword. But then I took a look at who actually wrote the foreword,  one Doug Phillips of Vision Forum. Vision Forum, that huge Evangelical Christian Quiverfull ministry devoted to making sure women were treated like inferior second class citizens in the kingdom of God, only fit to be walking uterii that could cook, work a vacuum cleaner and homeschool a huge passel of children birthed through quiverfull practices. No minds,no independent thought, no free agency, no freedoms. Only constant service to the Lord (her husband and/or father). … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Going To A Quiverfull Church While Infertile Why?

by Jennifer from her blog A Home With A Purpose - When Being At Church Hurts: InfertilityEditor's note: This is truly heartbreaking, being a member of a church that embraces Quiverfull yet unable to have any babies. Being tortured with frustration at the easy fecundity of others in your church isn't being 'sanctified', it is cruel, it would be cruel of any deity to demand you be constantly in the presence of your deepest desires with no way to obtain them. That's not a loving God. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Change Your Attitude About Babies?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - In Our Heart of HeartsHaving mined everything worth reading from Michael and Debi Pearl's No Greater Joy magazine (with the exception of Debi worshiping Israel and invoking Hitler and snooze-worthy sections of Michael's two new books) we've returned to the constant stream of Nancy Campbell's 'Love all babies, welcome all babies, love your home, submit, submit, submit' … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Embracing and Giving Thanks For That Womb?

Quoting Quiverfull: Influencing a Nation?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - A Mother's CreedAnother screed by Nancy insisting you stay home and birth them babies or else. A little grandiose of an idea that raising your children is influencing a nation, isn't it? … [Read more...]
