Quoting Quiverfull: Have Babies or Deprive the World?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Every Great Thing That Happens In The World Happens Through The Womb!Editor's note: Now Nancy is equating keeping from having a baby of a possible Einstein or Mother Theresa. What she doesn't say is that it works both ways, you might also be keeping a Jeffrey Dahmer or Pol Pot from this world too. Have lots of babies because God is her primary message these days. She doesn't seem to realize that her advise is about as true as those labels on ladies clothing that say 'One Size Fits All' … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Exhausted? Have Another Baby!

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Strength For Each New DayEditor's note: Nance doubles down yet again on her claims that if you keep pumping out babies that God will make sure you have enough energy to take care of them.

Quoting Quiverfull: You Can Either Have A Big House Or A Big Family But Not Both

by Zsuzsanna Anderson of Are They All Yours? - Answering Large Family Objections: My, How Small Your House Is!Editor's note: Holy cow! I always thought her house looked teensy from the photos she's posted but not that tiny. My house is bigger than that and we always felt cramped with two kids. I cannot imagine having to put 4 children, much less 8 in such a small space.

Quoting Quiverfull: Chosing to be Quiverfull is Like Taking Some Joy Pills?

by unidentified author at Hope By Design - Take a Joy PillEditor's note: There is just so much so wrong, blaming and almost hateful about this posting on why Quiverfull is what they think is the only way. Again ideas that the rest of the world is somehow 'selfish' or not having scads of children because they want new cars or fancy geegaws are trotted out like the moldy strawmen that they are. The reasons people don't have large families any longer outside of Quiverfull are as varied and complex as people themselves are. This is another sad example of reducing a complex problem into a simplistic black and white type thinking that reduces some people to less than others. It makes it much … [Read more...]

by Tim Bayly from Bayly Blog - Faith and Sex...Editor's note: More disingenuous claims that all QF Christians are going about it the 'right' way while ignoring that the highest divorce rates in the US occur among Christians. Faith and sex my rear end. Guess I should be grateful this is not his usual whining. Almost as bad as the time he insisted that child sexual abusers need grace, forgiveness and help without mentioning once care for the victims or involving law enforcement. … [Read more...]
