Quoting Quiverfull: Is Racism Driving the QF Movement?

Quoting Quiverfull: Is Racism Driving the QF Movement? July 3, 2013

by Nancy and Colin Campbell from a transcript from an Australian television show called A Woman’s Place

Mike Munro is the narrator

Mike Munro: This church teaches that true happiness can only be achieved if women obey their men.

Their view is that the western world must populate or perish.

It’s a war against Islam, and the battle is being fought in the womb.

Pastor Colin Campbell: The Islamics are having 8.1 member families, average and every one of them when they reach the age of eighteen will have a vote. Already in good old England there are cities that are now becoming more Islamic than English.

Can you imagine England becoming an Islamic state?

Mike Munro: One of the more controversial aspects of Quiverful is this DVD – claiming Muslims will eventually out-populate and take over the West without any conflict.

Pastor Colin Campbell: In southern France, traditionally one of the most populated church regions in the world, there are now more mosques than churches. We must prepare ourselves for the reality that in thirty years there will be 50 million Muslims living in America.

The world that we live in is not the world in which our children and grandchildren will live.

Colin: Dealing with other enemies that are bringing down our country out of prosperity into poverty, this is what we’re talking about, raising an army.

    What rubbish. As a European I get really annoyed at Americans making up lies about Europe. *sigh* No, in England, where I live, there are no ‘cities that are now becoming more Islamic than English’, as if the two were opposites.

    Unfortunately, this sort of racism is a little too widespread for comfort among Christian conservatives on both sides of the Atlantic.

    The obvious answer is for everyone to evolve and become atheists and then nobody needs to freak out.

    Agreed. Though I am not from Europe, I imagine that Muslims in Europe are largely the same as Muslims in America-a few have trouble assimilating and become radicalized, but the majority blend in perfectly into society (with the harmless possible exception of wearing hijab.) I’ve known Muslims that are conservative and who look Muslim, but who *gasp* do normal fun things, get an education, etc. and I’ve known Muslims that blend in so much that you would never know they are Muslim. So typical of the right to beat up on religious minorities. Nothing manly or brave about that.

    Another thing to point out: There are lots of Muslim babies being born, but not all of them are born to conservative Muslims. Many are born to moderate or liberal Muslims, and many of those born to conservative Muslims will either leave the faith or have a very different take on in than their parents did. They act like religion is a genetic trait that can be passed on, and in which the godly raise many godly children that take over and the atheists abort and conracept themselves out of existence. That line of reasoning is so beyond idiotic that I can’t believe anything thinks it.

    There are racist Atheists. I would know…I’m still struggling with issues with Mexicans myself after being raised in a very racist home.

  • Malte

    Considering some prominent atheists (Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris) are notorious Islamophobes, atheists don’t seem to be immune.

    If Christians are losing influence, it’s because we’re seen as racist, homophobic, and unconcerned with the pressing issues of the day such as climate change and poverty, NOT because those scary brown people (whichever ones we’re most afraid of at any given time) are outbreeding us.
