Have Babies So Scary Brown People Do Not Invade America?

Have Babies So Scary Brown People Do Not Invade America? November 27, 2018

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.

    Wake up and do things God’s way? The one who said “what you do for the least of these, you do for me” and talked about entertaining angels unawares and “you were strangers in Egypt” that god’s way?

  • Saraquill

    Back in the Obama administration, one person was trying to talk me into Islamaphobia. Her words included “we (presumably white Americans) have freedom, they (presumably brown non-Americans) have oppression.” I think of that line a lot now that the orange turd is in charge.

  • Anri

    I guess that whole “god grants you what you pray for” biz didn’t work out so well after all, did it?

  • SAO

    So, education is “Satan-inspired” and racism is “God’s way”?

    Screwtape sure would be proud of Wormwood.

  • Tawreos

    Why doesn’t he just quote the racists favorite 14 words and get it over with?

  • Friend

    I’d be annoyed to learn I was born to help swamp the voting booths.

  • Friend

    Good luck anticipating and outbreeding the next Irish potato famine. Colin ignores the things that push people to leave the old country. It’s extremely hard for every country to devise and enforce immigration laws that serve its needs, while taking into account the hardships of people who want to move there. Nothing about this is uniquely threatening to America.

  • Nightshade

    He’s lucky the Native Americans didn’t gas the hell out of those scary white immigrants all those years ago.

  • AFo

    I can’t imagine how damaging it would be for a child to discover that they were born as a means to an end, not out of love. How deep does the brainwashing have to go to make them accept this?

  • Savpunk

    “How can we swamp the voting booths….?” During the mid-terms, my quiverfull cousin opined that the laws should be changed to allow parents votes for every minor child in their household. If I didn’t know him and know evangelicals so well, I would have thought he was joking.

  • Friend

    Are you sure the word was “parents,” not “fathers”?

  • Mel

    Not as so much deep as early-starting and consistent.

    Campbell et al., are never going to get that the QF idea of out-breeding the enemy was doomed from the outset.

    Barring fertility issues, it’s not terribly hard for the first generation of a QF family to breed a ton of children and maintain a low-but-passable standard of living. The simple reason is that the first generation of QF benefits from the logistical and financial supports of a more moderate size family of origin plus K-12 education in a traditional school if not college.

    For the second generation, the outlook is more grim. Their family of origin has used most of their income on raising a massive brood of kids so there are few assets left to be divided among the kids. Their parents are likely still raising the younger members of the family while the older kids are in the hardest years where they have lots of small children and no kids old enough to raise the other ones. Their educational and career skills are average at best – and extremely underdeveloped at worst.

    Geoffrey Botkin’s claim to fame was an Excel document “200 Year Plan” where he essentially planned out the marriage date of his sons and when they would have grandkids based on that and after 200 years he had a huge number of male descendents.

    This plan looked great when his kids were kids. Now, his eldest son is my age (37) and has two kids. His next two sons are also in their thirties and have three kids each. For those playing at home, this means that that Geoffrey and Victoria Botkin had 7 kids who have produced exactly 8 grandkids so far.

  • VVVVV

    So would I. In fact I’d probably be annoyed enough to vote for some liberal progressive Democrats every time I got the chance.

  • Suzanne Harper Titkemeyer

    Neither of the Botkin daughters have married yet either.

  • bekabot

    His next two sons are also in their thirties and have three kids each.

    Three kids seems to be the standard for socially conservative families who are already part of a franchise (and are therefore subject to a certain amount of public scrutiny) or who are trying to found one (ditto). If you have three kids and enjoy a decent income, you can maintain an upper-middle-class lifestyle without undue stress or strain; and there are just enough of them (i.e., kids) that questions don’t immediately arise in bystanders’ minds as to why you have so few. If you’re a woman, you can have three kids and keep your figure — or your sanity, if you prefer to adopt. Three kids is like the Goldilocks zone of conservative family-values religiosity-wielding pundits. David French has three kids. Rod Dreher has three kids. Laura Ingraham has three kids. Me, I sense a pattern. ‘Nuff said.

    As long as Dad is alive, they never will.

    They’re also both in their 30s, where the likelihood of having children drops significantly. They best they can hope for, if they want marriage, is Geoff dying, then becoming either a beard, or the wife of a missionary who’s come home to settle down, or marrying a widower with kids.

    What I hope would happen is that Geoff dies, then the girls take over the house and business, and Mom stays out of their way.

    The Campbells are from New Zealand, probably the same part of New Zealand where Hannah Gadsby was beaten and nearly killed by the psycho fundagelicals.

  • Suzanne Harper Titkemeyer

    Ah~ all this time I thought they were Australian. Thanks

  • Savpunk

    Lol! Good point! He did say “parents” but I’m mortally sure he considers his wife’s vote his second one.

  • TheBookOfDavid

    The end being to outnumber the opposition, because they are unwilling to deal with them and cannot count on their children’s generation to outsmart them.

  • TheBookOfDavid

    Humanism, simply explained, is humans doing things according to their own wisdom and reasoning.

    Accepted for the sake of argument. In contrast, building upon the rock requires surrendering one’s wisdom and reasoning, and reacting to fear, aggression, and disgust.
