by Zsuzsanna Anderson of Are They All Yours? – Financial Reasons to Turn Off Your Television
Editor’s note: What is with the Quiverfull obsession with everyone else’s waistlines? We had a series of posts from Lori Alexander and one of the Pearl daughters on the unGodliness of fat children recently. While it’s a great idea to make sure your children are active and eat right the rising obesity levels in America aren’t due only to television! Is this just part of the whole telling everyone what to do cultural enforcer part of QF, or is it a symptom of fat-shaming being one of the last acceptable forms of putting others down publicly? What’s driving this none of their business bus?
Poorer dining habits Instead of spending time preparing a healthy, inexpensive meal from scratch, we would hurry up and eat an more expensive prepackaged meal (or takeout) so that we could catch certain television programs. These costs added up, not only on our wallets, but also around our waists.
Poor health / obesity Television is almost always a sedentary activity. Over time, it begins to show. Television is the big reason for the “obesity epidemic,” because Americans simply don’t get the natural exercise from doing non-sedentary activities that they once got. The health costs from this can be tremendous.
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.
