Quoting Quiverfull: Raising Boys Equal Messy House?

Quoting Quiverfull: Raising Boys Equal Messy House? July 24, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies – Mother’s Boys

Editor’s note: Welcome to another episode of ‘Cognitive Dissonance with Nancy Campbell’. Remember all that recent lecturing and hectoring by Nancy that you must keep your house immaculate while smiling and controlling your thoughts? Apparently that does not apply in her world if you have a pile of boys to raise. She just cannot make up her mind what is and isn’t the most important. Plus generalizations about the sexes don’t help anyone.

Yes, I know there are stains on my carpet,

The traces of small muddy boots,
And I see your fair tapestry glowing,
And flash in your dresses so bright.

Now, I think I’m a neat little woman
And I like my house orderly too,
And I’m fond of all dainty belongings,
Yet I would not trade places with you!

No! Keep your fair home with its order,
It’s freedom from bother and noise,
And keep your own fanciful leisure,
BUT GIVE ME MY FOUR SPLENDID BOYS!

QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders, cultural enforcers and those that seek to keep women submitted to men and ask our readers: What do you think? Agree? Disagree? This is the place to state your opinion. Please, let’s keep it respectful – but at the same time, we encourage readers to examine the ideas of Quiverfull and Spiritual Abuse honestly and thoughtfully.
