Quote# 60888

That's also the hope of Nancy Campbell, a leader of the Quiverfull movement and author of Be Fruitful and Multiply.

"The womb is such a powerful weapon; it's a weapon against the enemy," Campbell says.

Campbell has 35 grandchildren. She and her husband stopped at six kids, and it is her great regret.

"I think, help! Imagine if we had had more of these children!" Campbell says, adding, "My greatest impact is through my children. The more children I have, the more ability I have to impact the world for God."

"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.

Quiverfull: stupid people breeding even more stupid people.

You mean the more children you permanently fuck up, the more impact you have. Go away.

The Lazy One

You know, not all Muslims are having ridiculous amounts of kids.

Two of my best friends are Muslim. One is kid number 2 of three, and her older brother is eight years older than her, and her younger brother is fourteen years younger than her. That hardly qualifies as "outnumbering through multiplication".

Another friend is Muslim, and he's 1 of 1. Not everyone breeds like bunnies like you seem to think you need to.

Oh, by the way: kids are not ammunition- they are humans too, with their own feelings and desires and sense of right and wrong. If you don't know that you fail as a parent.

According to the CIA, the following is the order of religious preferences in the United States:

Christian: (78.5%)
Protestant (51.3%)
Roman Catholic (23.9%)
Mormon (1.7%)
other Christian (1.6%)

Muslim (0.6%)

Paranoia is a hell of a drug.

Vagina-it's not a clown car.

I'll believe a womb is a weapon when this ridiculous bitch can yank it out and shoot kids at me with it. Until then, it is simply an excuse to act as a superstitious cunt with an agenda of world domination. Dr. Evil would be proud.

This reminds me of the ending to "Idiocracy," sadly.

How about going for quality over quantity.

That's what I thought, I know that movie was supposed to be funny, but to me it was really scary because a lot of times it looks like that movie could almost come true.

Proving stupid people breed like rats.

3/26/2009 6:01:56 PM


Damnit. Take the damn quiverfull movement back Britain/Europe. We don't need to give the US's crazies anymore reason to multiply! For a while we could convince them it was time to stop after a half dozen, now it is out of control here! Stop encouraging them!

Where's that "Stupid People Shouldn't Breed" pic when you need it?

You better have the scratch to pay for all those brats.

Among people who think like this it seems almost like a nuclear arms race. "The Muslims" have a lot of kids, so the "real Christians" feel the need to have even more, and so it escalates.

Not a thought in their little heads about caring about this world and our limited resources, already spread through thin among the massive human population. Oh no, all that's important is their "my variation of God is better than your variation, so I must make sure that there are more people who believe in my variation"-crap.

3/26/2009 6:40:55 PM


Um...having kids is not a contest.

Nancy is very competitive.

Although Quiverfull is retarded, Muslims and other groups have proclaimed that they intend to take over the western world by outbreeding their supposed enemies. So even at the heart of the darkest fail, there may be a shred of truth.

The US Military's strategy of choice is not a Zerg rush.

I'm glad I was brought up by my mother to believe that, as a woman, I am more that just a baby-making machine and can excel in any area I set my mind to. Thanks, Mum.

Oh, for the love of... Your womb is not a WMD, you sad, strange woman.

The womb is a weapon? WTF!

Quiverfull is one of the scariest "Christian" sects ive heard of. Maybe the scariest.

Wrong brand of Christian, but works along the "Be Fruitful and Multiply" line of thought:
