    BBC barely scratches the quiverfull surface

    The article discusses the quiverfull movement and Nancy Cambell and Above Rubies. Although they point out various trips overseas to help recruit for the quiverfull movement, and the motivating concern that undesirable populations are outstripping Christians fast They barely scratch the surface. They point to No Longer Quivering and the feminist movement as those raising objections, but on the whole I am very disappointed with the coverage in this article. I realize that the BBC feels the remit to be unbiased fairly strongly, but this is a Magazine piece, surely it wouldn't be unfair coverage to delve more deeply into the connections with SODRT-style homeschooling, prohibitions against women working outside the home, social isolation, abuse and some of the darker implications than just "women have lots of babies and families eschew contraception even when it sometimes endangers a woman's health" which fair enough--is a problem. I just feel like there should be MORE awareness that these decisions aren't made by individuals who have the freedom to make choices in the ways that readers of this piece might envision. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-22526252

    Quiverfull in the UK

    Here's an interesting read from the BBC http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-22526252 (not breaking the link because it's the BBC). There's also a link at the bottom for a podcast airing tomorrow called "The Womb as a Weapon."
  3. http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2013/05/mitt-romney-quiverfull-fundamentalist-family-planning-advice It is just as we feared.
  4. Quiverfull by Kathryn Joyce I'm still waiting to read this book again. I have it on hold at the library but it hasn't come in yet.* I did read it several years ago and I remember liking it. I was just starting to look past the Duggar's facade and found it; I'm not sure if I had found Free Jinger yet or not. But I remember reading it and thinking- this shit is real! and scary! Until then I think I had been able to rationalize things away by saying what I had found on the internet was just exaggerated grumbling by Duggar haters. But once I read the book and realized that it been well researched I started realizing that it really did exist. Other thoughts? *I'm wondering if someone is just reading it or if there's another Free Jingerite in my area (the next book Going Clear is also checked out) May 1: Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood and the Prison of Belief by Lawrence Wright May 15: Crazy for God: How I Grew Up as One of the Elect, Helped Found the Religious Right, and Lived to Take All (or Almost All) of It Back by Frank Schaeffer June 1: In the Beginning: The Story of the King James Bible and How it Changed a Nation, a Language and a Culture by Alister McGrath June 15: Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith by John Krackauer July 1: Was America Founded as a Christian Nation?: A Historical Introduction by John Fea July 15: The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
  5. http://radaronline.com/exclusives/2013/ ... ob-duggar/ I take it they havent become pregnant since Jubilee. The news of a smuganna baby was enough to keep her happy? like a baby fix? Is she going through pregnancy withdrawals?

    Quiverfull Religions?

    Evangelical Baptists, IFB or Catholics are are most notably quiverfull but are there other religions that are usually quiverfull that are less known? I'm thinking Seventh Day Aventists? Apostolic Pentecostals?

    Duggar funny

    A very Christian woman marries a very Christian man. Following the words of the Bible, "Be fruitful and multiply," they have many children. 16 over the course of 18 years, to be exact. A few years later, the husband dies suddenly of a heart attack. The lady remarries another man, and they have 17 children over the course of 22 years. The woman's second husband dies of old age. The woman herself dies a few years later. At her funeral, her sister remarks, "Well, at least they're finally together." "Who? She and her husbands?" asks the pastor. "No," says the sister. "Her legs."
  8. I get that lazy parents want their older daughters to take care of their younger children. But if you believe that you should have a quiver full of arrows to engage in culture war with the rest of the population, wouldn't you want not only as many children as possible, but as many grandchildren as possible too? Seems that you wouldn't want your daughters spending their most fertile years unmarried.

    Another QF family

    I haven't seen any mention of the Shupe family on FJ yet: largefamiliesonpurpose.com Their beliefs seem like fairly "standard" QF beliefs. They're VF fans, Duggar fans, Maxwell fans, etc. They also believe the confusing "trust god with your fertility, but if that doesn't give you kids, try IVF" (that's a paraphrase, not a direct quote). They share way too much personal info like their childrens' names, family name, location, home floor plans, etc.) Not so good for protecting your family's privacy, but totally fascinating for nosy types like me who try to imagine what life in a QF home might be like. They don't shelve their kids at night, but it doesn't seem too far off: largefamiliesonpurpose.com/2011/04/organizing-home-more-tips-for.html (note the kids' rooms, keeping in mind that there's 3 girls in the girls BR now, with the two youngest twins who will likely join the girls as soon as the master bedroom closet is needed for the next baby/babies). Based on the blog, I will say that the family is exceedingly organized, ahrd-working, and appears to be doing well (although, as with most QF families, I wonder about the quality of the homeschooling). But as always, I'm finding it sad that the couple feels the need to have endless babies to prove their faith in god. Aren't there other ways of demonstrating one's trust in god?

    Call the midwife and the Duggars

    Okay, so I rented Call the Midwife from the library. I was shocked to see the first episode reminded me of the Duggars and all Fundies. The lady the new midwife was caring for was pregnant with her 25th baby. She had 2 set of twins so pregnant in total 23 times since the age of 14. It got me thinking. What if Michelle had started earlier than 21? I have to say the doctors were mad on the show that she was having her 25th baby. All her last babies were healthy; the last was sick and a preemie like Michelle. The lady had Preeclampsia I don't know just a lot of similarities The show takes place in 1957 I believe

    Quiverfull UK

    http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/wo ... amily.html I have no idea if this has been posted before. Something somebody wrote in another thread about the UK made me google. Pound to a penny they have a blog? Anybody know? The comments are funny. The first comment if true is very telling.

    QF'ers could learn from animal rescues!

    I have pet rats and was reading this on ratforum.com under possible red flags when adopting from animal rescues. Made me think of fundies and how their kids lives could be so much richer (not necessarily financially, although that'd probably happen too) if they'd just STOP breeding!

    Awesome Quiverfull Documentary

    Has anybody seen this? If not; I'm surprised! It's really good, and should go viral.
  15. I wonder if The Uterus has caught wind of this. She could harvest healthy ovarian tissue from a J'slave and use it to extend her fertility. 40 Kids and Counting...imagine that show! http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/9375952/Women-could-delay-the-menopause-indefinitely-with-ovary-transplant-doctors.html
  16. seems whites have less births so that has to be a very scary thing for our fundies. but they already knew that I guess. How soon before we here the cries from all our favorite fundies to make more babies? http://m.apnews.com/ap/db_268773/conten ... d=utAlrBHY WASHINGTON (AP) - For the first time, racial and ethnic minorities make up more than half the children born in the U.S., capping decades of heady immigration growth that is now slowing.

    Glee Dig at the Duggars

    Did anyone cacth the dig on the Duggar in tongihts Glee.
  18. Anna.xanga is a perrenial favorite for me. She's always trying to predict the end of the world in the next six months and is totally into some weird Faux Judaism/Torah believing Christianity and thinks Messianics are too mainstream and uncool. She is also pretty relaxed about things like reading harry potter/twilight or having her kids do ballet and hip hop dancing. Anyway she posted some really snotty post about how her semi-quiverfull approach (she seems to have stopped at 5 kids for the time being) is so vastly superior to the typical 2.5 kids because she will always have babies! And she can totally plan on when her eldest kids start pumping out the grand babies. It gets me all very eye-rolly that she's so smug and certain she knows when her kids will start pumping out grand babies on her command. anna.xanga.com/761681909/item/
  19. Yet another tragic outcome of never being allowed to explore anything but the most rigid gender and sex roles: http://jezebel.com/5905780/what-happens ... es-a-woman

    BandP blog reviews Large Family Logistics

    Barefoot and Pregnant reviews the book Large Family Logistics and has a few things to say about it. Considering her crazy shirt and claiming she got soooo much attention because of it, I found this post interesting. If she wasn't so against women's rights and anti-choice, she'd probably fit in here. ETA: Forget to give link. My bad. barefootandpregnantblog.blogspot.com/2012/04/3-12-time-outs-tuesday.html
  21. In the news. Interesting I thought Jim Bob will have to sell sperm to keep up http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/sideshow/british-man-allegedly-fathered-600-children-sperm-bank-200102619.html

    Thanks to the FJer who provided a link to 'religiondispatches" where I found this article about the relationship among the Duggars, Santorum and Quiverful. The article notes that God gave man dominion over the earth, but that God retains dominion over human bodies. I don't understand how QF gets there. Might my fellow FJers help???? http://www.religiondispatches.org/archi ... 29_family/
