Wombs of Mass Destruction

I was annoyingly reminded of the opening sequence of “Idiocracy” when I heard about the Quiverfull movement.

“The womb is such a powerful weapon; it’s a weapon against the enemy,” Nancy Campbell, a leader of the Quiverfull movement says. “…The more children I have, the more ability I have to impact the world for God.”

Campbell says if believers don’t starting reproducing in large numbers, biblical Christianity will lose its voice.

So the Quiverfull Movement has gotten a clue. Since Evangelical Christianity can no longer appeal to secular adults and convert them, the only way to increase the size of their cult is to have babies and brainwash them. Parents all over the Midwest and South will brainwash millions of their attention-starved progeny and enlist them in God’s army to win the world for Jesus. I can hardly wait to encounter them.
 
And here’s the scariest quote: 
 
“We look across the Islamic world and we see that they are outnumbering us in their family size, and they are in many places and many countries taking over those nations, without a jihad, just by multiplication,” Campbell says.”
 
So its all about war with Islam. Congratulations Quiverfull Movement! You have just climbed to the top of my list of destructive influences in this country.

  1. Funny, we don’t see our child as a “weapon” or a way to promote our ideology. We see her as a human being.

    But what do I know, I’m an atheist feminist who supports gay rights, so I have no family values.

  2. This was all over Alternet about 3 years ago – “Quivers for the bow” – clearly they are fruitcakes, and besides, it is far easier to spend $$$ dispersing and depopulating your enemies (a la Iraq) than copulating like righteous rabbits.

    I am always struck by the incompatibility of ‘Army of God’ etc, all this Christian militarism, perhaps on account of having to sing “Onward Christian soldiers, marching as to war, with the cross of Jesus, going on before” every morning for ten years, my reward for being a child in a Church of England school.

    My other favourite was the great excuse of all inequity being the work of God in All Creatures Great and Small

    “The rich man in his castle / the poor man at his gate / He made them high or lowly / and ordered their estate”

    No class war in the name of God!
