Yes, this, this racist thinking that America should not be invaded by those so-called ‘scary brown people’ is the real driving force in Quiverfull theology. Many ministries and people claim that it’s all about doing ‘God’s work’ but Colin and Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies Meat For Men are honest in why Quiverfull is important to them. It’s because they are racists.
Colin Campbell is complaining in this piece about the fact that Republicans had more losses than gains, meaning that immigrants would be allowed into the country.
His ideas are particularly repellent and disgusting based upon Sunday’s tragic events where U.S. Border agents thought it was a good idea to shoot tear gas canisters over the border wall into Mexico. Into that crowd of mothers and children that primarily make up the Central American caravan that was much mentioned in the run up to the Midterm elections. Trump is also now saying he will completely close the borders.
I guess Colin hasn’t seen the recent figures from Pew Research and other organizations that show that young people are leaving the church in droves. Just bearing and raising young people to vote no longer works to assure Quiverfull victories.
This is the ultimate failure of Quiverfull Evangelical theology, a denial of the things Jesus did say to do, like welcoming and caring for refugees in their country. Instead Colin wants to keep out the scary brown people and force his own personal code of conduct on the bulk of the nation, a nation founded on the notion of religious liberty. Religious liberty does not mean forcing your religion on others. Hate is not love.
The great irony in Colin’s words are the fact that he, and his wife Nancy, immigrated to the United States from Australia. They seek to remove the same rights they enjoyed from others. They didn’t have to do all the things, and cough up the large amount of money that an American immigrating to Australia would have to. Hypocrites of the worst kind.
