Quoting Quiverfull: Part 7 – Infant Manifesto?

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 7 – Infant Manifesto? November 30, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – Infant Manifesto

Editor’s note: We continue on with our glimpse into the frightened small mindset of one Mr. Michael Pearl and why he should never be allowed around small children. Turns out this answer to the earlier stated goals of all toddlers and babies is supposedly from the mouth of a two year old.

Oh, I don’t blame my parents, I know that I intimidated them, not through strength, but through my weakness. They felt so helpless and inadequate, and I used that to gain even more control. The magazines in the doctor’s office helped me in my conquest toward autonomy. The “professionals” are just little rebellious kids in disguise. I know; I met some of them when I attended counseling with my parents. They have learned to say things with those big words, giving a name to every form of stupid behavior, but they are just big selfish kids trying to justify their own indulgence. They make our patterns of rebellion sound like legitimate childhood stages.

I tell you this at my own risk. It is too late to have me aborted, at least I think it is. They don’t abort two-year-olds do they? Not yet anyhow? But if they find out I am telling you this they might decide to turn my brain into gravy with some of their drugs. I guess I am just paranoid, with Janet Reno still running around loose. My big brother, four-years-old, just informed me that I am getting off the subject, but what do you expect from a two-year-old with a three-year-old secretary?

This is all followed with a tale of this fictional child having a birthday party and not wanting to share his/her toys, hitting and fighting with another child, destroying his/her birthday cake during a tantrum because Mamma would not allow him/her to cut the cake. All this is topped with this happening….

I saw another Mom talking to my Mom in a very serous way. They both looked at me like they were plotting something really bad, and then Mom nodded her head yes. The woman opened her purse and handed Mother a plain little book with no color on the cover. I saw that her purse was full of them. She must have been some kind of missionary or something.

Ah, yes, the hand-off of the child-beating manifesto by Mr. Pearl. It’s completely a fetid fantasy of Mr. Pearl’s that anyone would be walking around with a stack of those dreadful books in their purse to hand out willy-nilly. Stay tuned. It all gets so much worse.

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.

    “Don’t trust experts with all their education. Trust an ignorant, insecure baby-beating bigot with three child deaths to his credit and it will be much better for your baby.”

  • SAO

    I’d have thought it was tough to get worse than suggesting a crying baby was doing purely out of an evil plot to manipulate his parents.

    I want to pretend that Mikey isn’t serious about this horrifying nonsense, and that this is just an outline for a novel about a dystopian world ruled by super-smart, evil babies and toddlers.
