Nancy Campbell Worships Wombs?

Nancy Campbell Worships Wombs? January 4, 2018

Womb or Kracken? From Deviant Art and Facebook

This is one of those extra-Biblical themes, making it all up and claiming it’s Biblical, that Above Rubies Nancy Campbell likes to engage in. Not a lick of truth of sense in it, but Nancy insists it is so. Womb worship is an important man-made pillar of Quiverfull theology.

Her title – God Chose A Womb – is what Nancy really thinks happens. Instead of it being a fact of biology, that sperm and egg meet and grow into a zygote into a fetus before being born as a infant, Nancy insists this is some fancy Jesus magic going on to determine who will bear a child.

All this womb talk of Nancy’s is making me think about womb look-alikes Kranken and the sigil for House Greyjoy in “Game of Thrones”

WOMB

If Satan hates the womb, as Nancy states, and that womb and it’s fruit of Jesus dealt Satan a death blow then why are we even still having this conversation today? Man, that devil is so busy in the world of Nancy Campbell that I wonder he has time to do all these things simultaneously. I have to go now because I can feel my sarcasm going into lethal levels now.

On a serious note, everything coming from the mouth/mind/fingers of Nancy is starting to sound exactly like the word of the Aunts in Hulu’s show “The Handmaid’s Tale”

Seems fitting to discuss on a day where the three most recent Duggar brides, Joy-Anna, Kendra and Jinger are pregnant at the same time.

    You know how if you see a word too many times, it starts looking wrong, sounding wrong, etc?

    WOMB

    (Currently being interpreted as one would say “bomb”)

  • AFo

    Nancy, there is more to a woman than her uterus. Like her brain, which you clearly stopped using decades ago.

    On a slightly funnier note, I just started reading “Macbeth” with my students, and it’s always hilarious seeing what kind of theories they come up with for the loophole in the prophecy that “None of woman born shall harm Macbeth” before we get to the twist that it’s referring to Macduff, who was not born naturally. I usually get at least a few who say that it’s not a person at all, but a creation/minion of Hecate disguised as a human, which doesn’t sound too far off from some of what Nancy has said.

  • SAO

    In short, a woman’s sole worth is in her ability to give birth to men who might do great things. But then, again, they might turn out to be creeps. It seems to me that it would be easier for Satan (assuming he exists) to convert neglected kids of overwhelmed parents than the loved and wanted kids of parents who plan their families.

  • lisu

    So what are we supposed to do about infertile people then?

  • The Jack of Sandwich

    Nancy insists this is some fancy Jesus magic going on to determine who will bear a child.

    Just think, Jesus could have stopped choosing any Canaanite wombs to bear children a few decades before Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt. Then there would have been no need of war, the Israelites could have just wandered in to a newly empty Promised Land, ready for their taking.

  • Carstonio

    I haven’t yet read Naomi Alderman’s “The Power,” but now I imagine women releasing electrical bolts from their wombs.

  • Carstonio

    I always assumed Macduff’s mother had an involuntary cesarean.

  • Saraquill

    Reading Campbell’s overuse of the word “womb” reminded me of my “We Bleed For You” T-shirt. Like most women, I spend more time bleeding than incubating.

    (I highly recommend checking out the artist behind the shirt, Rokudenashiko. Unlike Campbell, she works for positive change in how the world views female anatomy.)

    Three years ago we saw “Macbeth” at Stratford, Ontario. Usually, I really enjoy their performances, but this one was a bit off. I think the biggest problem was that both Macbeth and Lady Macbeth overacted their parts – but they were also clearly too young like their mid-twenties.

    IMHO, Macbeth’s crazed response to each of the Witches’ prophesies about Banquo only make sense if Macbeth and his wife were at the outside edge of their child-bearing years and childless. Female royalty during that time routinely had children through their 30’s and Lady Macbeth states that she’s nursed an infant before – one that presumably died. Even Henry VIII didn’t freak out about Catherine of Aragon’s relative infertility until they had been married for 14 years making her 39 years old and him 34 years old.

  • AFo

    I think it’s also jealousy- Macbeth will never have anyone to carry on his family name and legacy, while Banquo and Macduff both have sons. Trying to kill Fleance at least makes sense in terms of what the witches said- if Banquo’s son is killed, he cannot be father to a line of kings. Having Macduff’s entire family murdered achieves nothing for him tactically- if he wanted Macduff to cooperate, or to extract concessions from him, he would have had more leverage if he held the family hostage- but when viewed in the context of envy, coupled with Macbeth’s complete loss of morality by that point in the play, it starts to make more sense.

  • AFo

    That’s pretty much the accepted interpretation. It also demonstrates, in a rather twisted way, the militant pro-fetus and pro-birth views of some fundamentalists- the poor woman probably died a horrible, painful death, but her baby lived, so she served her purpose.

  • MasterTrollBater
  • Aloha

    The whole “babies are a blessing” thing with a twist … now it’s that a fertile womb is a blessing.
    But what about toe-nails? Can no one laud what a blessing their continual growth is?
    Fingernails, toenails, and leg hair are also gifts that keep on giving, reminding us of God’s never-ending love.

  • Sonyaj

    Pity them and pray for them, or maybe bring up repeatedly how inadequate they are without a litter of children to make their lives complete in both god’s and society’s eyes? Nothing remotely offensive or hurtful about that if you’re infertile and desperately want a child.

    I’m CFBC, and the quality of my life has never been better since I was finally able to have my wretched fetus container evicted almost 2 years ago, and thinking of the look of horror on this Nancy woman’s face if I told her that would be so entertaining. If there was any way I could have handed off my functioning uterus when I was in my 20’s to someone who couldn’t have a baby, i’d have been all for that. I do know it worked all too well when I was 24, and found myself briefly knocked up.

  • lisu

    What does CFBC mean?

  • Allison the Great

    I was getting ready to turn those two paragraphs into a drinking game, then thought better of it. Alcohol poisoning is not something i need in my life right now.

  • lady_black

    I closed my womb at age 26. I had three births between age 20 and age 26. That’s more than sufficient. I wouldn’t have wanted another baby if gold dust dripped from it’s nose, instead of… well, you know what drips from babies noses.
    I had other things to do. I’m sorry if Nancy Campbell has nothing better to do. That sounds like a personal problem.

  • lady_black

    Envy them.

  • lady_black

    I’m a nurse, and I have no idea.

  • Krissi_C

    Child Free By Choice, I believe.

  • Suzanne Harper Titkemeyer

    Had mine removed 15 years ago. Best decision ever![

  • MillyPierce

    “All the great feats and accomplishments of this world only happen through someone who was conceived and birthed from the womb.”

    If this is true then would that mean that women have all the power and men should submit to us in all things? I believe in equality, but I’m just saying, these women sure are getting gipped

  • bekabot

    At least envy is a sure-’nuff sin — at least it is if you believe in Christianity — unlike the accident of childlessness, which may or may not be planned-for, but which is a sin only if you worship fertility and not Jesus or God. I’ve been saying for years that these people are part of a fertility cult, and the evidence for it just keeps piling up and up. Lately I’ve been wondering whether the biology-worship isn’t something the dudely part of the congregations have fobbed off on the women to keep them busy and make them feel like they’re participating — it would make sense for Fundagelicals to think that women have no place in worship, since for them the true divinity is exclusively male.

  • bekabot

    Witches to Banquo, in Macbeth’s hearing:

    “Hail! — Lesser than Macbeth, and greater. — Not so happy, yet much happier. — Thou shalt get kings, though thou be none: So all hail, Macbeth and Banquo!”

    Macbeth to himself (later, in a dire snit):

    “They hailed him father to a line of kings.
    Upon my head they placed a fruitless crown
    And put a barren scepter in my grip,
    Thence to be wrenched with an unlineal hand,
    No son of mine succeeding.” (etc.)

    So you see, it all comes of not listening to witches. The witches warned him, darn it.

  • lisu

    I can imagine that the likes of Zsuzsanna Anderson might quite like to be infertile. It would give them a break.

  • Emersonian

    She does know that all mammals have wombs, right? This isn’t exactly what makes us humans unique and special.

  • nmgirl

    I called it exercising the ‘use or lose it’ clause. Unfortunately no dr agreed with me so the universe blessed me with early menopause.

  • Carstonio

    While it strongly resembles a fertility cult, it’s actually about preserving the power of patriarchs by ensuring they have successors.

  • lady_black

    Sin is an imaginary disease, invented to sell an imaginary cure.

  • Sonyaj

    Krissi is correct: child free by choice.

  • Mary Hannah bates

    I kept asking the doctors to remove mine for science. I wish to dog I never had kids. Nobody would tie my tubes until I was 25 or had a husbands permission. That was in the 80’s.

  • zizania

    Had mine out when I was 45. Felt like I’d been set free. I had my tubes tied in my twenties, after my son was born, so it’s not like it was going to get any more use.

  • zizania

    Having lost all of my hair (head and body) and now losing my fingernails, I would certainly agree with you. Even if you were being sarcastic.

  • Jezebel’sOlderSister

    Had mine removed 18 years ago (endometriosis — sounds like God decided I didn’t need it anymore). I tried having it removed 10 years previous to that, but the doctors determined that I was TOO YOUNG to make this decision and that I might change my mind and want to have children.

  • Jezebel’sOlderSister

    I also asked to have EITHER tubes tied or plumbing removed during the 80’s — and I was told NO, that I would change my mind about having children (never did — took another 10 years before I HAD to have them removed).

  • DogGone

    and cursed the Scottish Play (beware–winks) I used to recite the chant as part of a storytelling session at Halloween and lost my voice every single year.

  • DogGone

    Moooo

  • firebubbles310

    I thought childbirth was the punishment for original sin. So why is having babies such a good thing. Also since jeebus came to deal with sin why do Christian women still die in childbirth and have pain same as non-Christians?

  • DogGone

    Hey, ya gotta take your punishment, you bad daughter of Eve, you!

  • DogGone

    and slaves

    Tell ’em to just pray harder and have more faith. /end sarcasm.

  • B.E. Miller

    “Aahhhhh. Hot potato, orchestra stalls, Puck will make amends. [tweak nose].”

    Sorry, stole that from Blackadder…..

  • B.E. Miller

    Now I keep imagining some sort of reverse fairy tale, where a fairy tries to give away a baby that drips gold dusts, and women keep complaining that they can’t possibly care for another baby, they’re too tired/ have too many kids, have too many already……

  • B.E. Miller

    Oh, noes, Thor (Marvel) actually knows Sheela Na Gig. He’s always very polite around her, and he’s sure she’d love to know Migardians remember her, by putting her image on their church buildings.

    Sorry, your comment made me think of those sheela na gig images, and my mind took off from there.

  • B.E. Miller

    I like this WOMB best….

  • B.E. Miller

    Yes, hair and toenails are definitely a sign of good health. If you start losing hair, it’s time to see the doctor.

  • zizania

    Been there, done that. It’s an overactive immune system.
