Nancy Campbell Womb Worship

Nancy Campbell Womb Worship July 23, 2019

There are things you could count on. It will rain, you will get hungry, and everyone pays taxes in one way or another. Plus you know Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies will tell you to set your table nicely with a tablecloth and flowers, order you to be joyous at home, and eventually lapse into womb worship. Here Nancy claims possession a uterus is the most important thing in all of human history.

Why? Because you can influence all of human history with the many babies you can have. Nancy wants you to be a human Pez dispenser shooting out copious amounts of small humans to overtake this world as white Christians. She does not state it here, but Nancy had said repeatedly that filling the world with righteous white Christians is important in her mind to keep outbreeding scary brown people, particularly those in the Moslem world. Keeping Sharia law in check via breeding.

So Nancy conflates the importance of having a womb yet again:

The whole world hinges on the womb of a mother. Is this an outlandish statement? No, it is the truth. Everything that happens in this world, the workforce, the great inventions, the amazing feats all happen through people. And everyone of these people come to the world no other way than through the womb of a mother! The womb of the mother is a powerful place. It is a place if destinies. I wonder who God has planned to bring into the world through your womb? How sad to forfeit plans that God has for this world.

You know, God also brought Pol Pot, Hitler, Rasputin, all the serial killers in the world through a mother’s womb too. For every inventor or amazing person born there are others less special born or just downright evil. Everyone, the entire spectrum of folks in this world emerged from wombs. You cannot claim it’s all blessings.

And that’s okay. Not everyone can be a superstar of humanity, and it’s all good.

What’s not good is Nancy’s implication that women are purposely denying using their wombs because of selfish reasons. It’s not selfish to only have the number of children you can legitimately support financially. It seems sacrificial to me, because many of us might wish for a new baby or bigger family, yet know it would just make life harder for the children we already have.

The other part of this is that many women cannot have children, they’d had to have complete hysterectomies, and if you follow Nancy’s line of thinking here it’s easy to blame them. I remember being in my old church, having issues so bad that my red blood cell count kept falling and I needed a hysterectomy so badly. Everyone around me at the old church begged me not to do it, insisting I pray for a healing only, trusting God to resolve the lifelong issues I had. I had the hysterectomy, and had to listen to this exact type of thinking over it.

It’s painful when the Nancys of this world think they know best over complex issues, and order you to do it their way. But they never consider that, just having their own way that they rubber stamp by saying it is God.

Any time you try to justify hurting others ‘because God’ you’ve walked away from that God.

    By Quiverfull logic I am a waste of DNA: physically incapable of serving a man through homemaking, s‌ex, or breeding. The deity who wants women to symbolize his church made me the worst possible symbol; is it any wonder I left him behind?

  • Saraquill

    By this logic, the Middle Eastern Hippy is not so special, and his mom isn’t much better.

  • Nea

    Aw, bless. Nancy’s gone and found the poem from 1865 saying “the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world,” decided to rewrite it, and claim it’s original work.

  • Iain Lovejoy

    “I wonder who God has planned to bring into the world through your womb? How sad to forfeit plans that God has for this world.”
    The point of this is to underline that, because you are female, God could not possibly have plans for you yourself in this world, only the [word for male genitalia starting with “p”](**** you Disqus)-havers you bring into it. It’s vitally important you don’t ask what plans God might have had for you if you weren’t at home churning out babies.
    (It’s also vital not to ask what is closed off from those children because with 10 of them and no education or prospects if your own you couldn’t afford to give any of them a decent education and start in life. Numbers are everything.)

  • Delta

    Not penis69-havers. Sons.

    Do you think Nancy’s god has a “plan” for trans girls, and views them above their cis mothers?

  • nmgirl

    I suspect I’m not the only one who made a deliberate decision to not be a parent because I was raised by an emotionally abusive mother. I knew I could not be a good parent and I was not going to torture another child.

  • wannabe

    First line needs an edit.

  • Womb worship?

    How positively pagan!

  • I took Arabic Culture this last semester, and one thing that came up is that in traditional Arabic society, having multiple kids was encouraged: IIRC, it was seen as insurance in old age and as a way to have extra help. Also, IIRC, urban and/or educated families have fewer kids.

    Hmm, more kids in rural areas, Nancy says “Cuz Bible”…are these connected, and do they show how Quiverfull misses it?

    (Also, if women have this much power, does this mean women should rule the world, and that men should submit to women?)

  • Emersonian

    “Human PEZ dispenser.” Evocatively brilliant. 🙂

  • Iain Lovejoy

    Nancy wouldn’t understand the question. In her worldview gender is determined entirely by the possession or otherwise at birth of a penis69.

  • AFo

    And what bright bastions of human greatness did Nancy bring into the world via her womb? What lasting contributions have they made? Who is going to remember them when they’re gone?

  • Suzanne Harper Titkemeyer

    Her very smug obnoxious self righteous grand daughter Willow?

  • Suzanne Harper Titkemeyer

    Done. That’s what happens when my fingers don’t keep up with my mind and myself is in a hurry.

  • lady_black

    Maybe in Arabic culture, having kids is insurance in old age. Maybe once upon a time, it was here, too. And, it makes perfect sense that in an agrarian society, many hands are needed to do the work.
    You’d be surprised how many in the western world think that, too. But, as a society we’ve grown to expect more in old age than family can provide. Nursing homes are no longer places where childless old people go to die. Nursing homes are the hospitals of yester-year. Many go there to be rehabilitated to return to self-care. There are vibrant retirement communities where people live semi-independently without the burdens of home-ownership. Their days are filled with activities, they are allowed to keep pets, they have choices in dining, and even places where they can go to enjoy a drink, or cold beer or two.
    Nursing homes are filled with people who need skilled care, too complicated for family to deal with unless they happen to have a nurse in the family who can forego working for a living. There are people in hospice. There are people there getting physical and occupational therapy for discharge to home, or a lesser level of care, that thirty years ago would have been done in a hospital. I saw that in my own early nursing years. When I did nursing home rotations, it was rare to find anyone getting IVs, or much of any medical care other than medication administration by the enteral route. Ten years later, we were routinely doing IVs, including central lines, medical isolation cases requiring full body protection and negative pressure rooms for TB patients, in some cases, even dialysis.
    Long story short, only a fool would have children thinking their children would be taking care of them when they get old. Chances are, that will never materialize. However, they may be getting more in-home professional help. That appears to be the way things are trending… aging in place, home care over institutionalization, modifying the physical structure of the home you have to accommodate those with mobility issues, etc. And with most surgery being outpatient surgery, that’s becoming a reality.

  • Kathi

    Nancy calls conception a “visit from God.” She is beyond bizarre with her womb obsession.

  • Nea

    I’m pretty sure their abused adoptees are going to take that memory to their own graves.

  • Treyarnon

    Yes, humans tend to reproduce. But what for?. What’s the flipping point of living to reproduce, to live to reproduce? God is that all there is to life, really? It’s not as if a global population crash is an imminent possibility for heavens sakes.

  • persephone

    I loved the “Vagina69 – Not a clown car” meme that had the Duggars pictured on it.

  • Jennifer

    Beautifully said, Suzanne.

  • Considering my disabilities, and how hard it is just to take care of myself, I believe I made the right choice to NOT be a parent.
