The Quiverfull movement In this post I’m just sketching the lay of the land. There’s an overlap between the homeschooling movement, the Quiverfull movement, and the Patriarchy movement. These are separable, and they are often separate in practice, but some members of one group belong to two or all three groups. An antinatalist philosophy is taking hold in secular circles. Couples who prefer dogs to kids. They disapprove of childbearing. They’re into “saving the planet” from “overpopulation. I’m guessing that Doug Wilson is probably its best representative. By that I mean, if you wish to evaluate the Patriarchy movement, he’s probably the most articulate, responsible, and nuanced spokesman.
The Homeschool Apostates
The term is taken from a verse in Proverbs, which says: I was one of nine children, and our family was just on the large end of “normal” in size. Really, it was downright small: We didn’t need to use all the seats in our passenger van to get to church.

Please remember that while the contributors to this website are united in our belief that there are problems with the teachings of Vision Forum, we come from a variety of different perspectives. The subjection of women is also prevalent in the Quiverfull movement. Using a feminist perspective of televisual narrative analysis, I will examine four episodes from the show to argue that it provides a platform for legitimizing a radical Christian sect that oppresses basic human rights of the women who belong to the movement.
Due to the popularity of their show on TLC, the Duggars have become the unofficial spokespeople of the Quiverfull movement. The movement is a relatively small branch of the Christian faith, with adherents in the thousands to possibly low ten thousands from many different fundamentalist and conservative evangelical denominations. Furthermore, until the Duggar family burst onto the cable television landscape, the Quiverfull movement had flown under the media radar for almost 20 years.
Beyond Feminism and Back to Reality. Family Planning and the Lordship of Christ. Families who are a part of the Quiverfull movement are also strong advocates of traditional family roles that centre on male headship. Homemaking and mothering are seen as the higher calling for women, who will devote their lives to raising godly children. She is in charge of all the domestic arrangements.

I can write whatever I want, of course, because this is a free country. Maybe a little too free! Which is funny because the Duggars—children included—think thoughts about people like me. Jim Bob Duggar and his wife, Michelle Duggar, the couple with the 19 kids, are hardcore fundamentalist Christians and members of the Quiverfull movement. Their prior claim to fame involved a swiped family photograph and a parody motivational poster. That was at 2:
Whether it was their modest attire (long hair, no pants, no skimpy swimsuits) or the fact that they replaced traditional dating with a more formal (and chaperoned!) courtship process, the Duggars.
Trap yes, false no. Notice all the alleged slush fund payoffs in the current problems with several members of congress. The best thing is to get some goods on somebody, some evidence to prove it, and then state your price. They both fell into the trap, but perhaps for different reasons. No need to say that said faith need not be shaken by this sort of thing, like who ya goona have faith in anyhow and all that-because we have heard comment after comment here on TWW over a long period of time from people who say that their faith is shaken or perhaps gone based on what they have seen in christianity.
Something about smite the shepherd and the sheep will scatter, or words to that effect. And it may be that the husband is just some poor innocent in all this. At first I thought not, but perhaps he really is just one more victim in a pile of victims.
The untold truth of 19 Kids and Counting
For those not familiar with ATI or the Quiverfull movement, the prospect of a family having 19 going on 20 children is just mind boggling. Yet for those of us who grew up in ATI, having many children seems quite normal. Or, at least it used to.
Also, be sure to check out the QuiverFull Digest, our email discussion group that was started in Dedicated to providing encouragement and practical help to those who are striving to raise a large and growing, godly family in today’s world! Psalm King James Version.
The Duggars announced on Friday, May 9, that they are expecting their 18th child. With 19 children, the Duggars are frequently associated with the “Quiverfull” movement — a contingent of conservative Christians who shun contraception — though Michelle and Jim Bob have said they do not formally consider themselves “Quiverfull” Christians. Even if the family doesn’t openly embrace the ideology, their lifestyle mirrors many of its core principles.
To remind you exactly what the movement is all about, here are a few key facts you should know: The name comes from a passage in the Bible. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court. Another adherent told BBC in that her husband “saw it wasn’t such a scary thing to do after all, and that God wouldn’t overwhelm us with more than we could handle. One baby at a time arrived, and we were handling it, so we felt our marriage was being blessed by this choice and we continued.
The outlet noted that after five or six children, women are more prone to post-partum bleeding or hemorrhaging, though one doctor told NBC that having many kids can help protect women from breast and ovarian cancer.
Informal list of polygamous sects
Kathryn Joyce wrote about this subculture in her book Quiverfull: Inside the Christian Patriarchy Movement, but Garrison’s speech offers the unique perspective of someone who actually tried to live this lifestyle for many years. As Garrison explains on her blog, the Quiverfull movement is about more than just having a ton of kids. It’s also a “patriarchal cult” that teaches that men are “leaders, teachers, initiators, protectors and providers” and women are “helpmeets” who serve men by being “submissive and yielding.
In the Quiverfull movement, children are pretty much metaphorical weapons born to shoot a degenerate modern society in the face. I was one of nine children, and .
We are deeply saddened and troubled by this heartbreaking situation, and our thoughts and prayers are with the family and victims at this difficult time. The Quiverfull movement promotes copious procreation, rejects all forms of contraception, and treats women basically as brood mares; second-class citizens who must be subservient to men, and whose primary purpose is childbearing. It comes from an Old Testament verse: Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: Population is a preoccupation for many Quiverfull believers, who trade statistics on the falling white birthrate in European countries like Germany and France. Every ethnic conflict becomes evidence for their worldview: Inside the Christian Patriarchy Movement. I read it years ago, and have been watching the rise of groups like the Duggars with great trepidation as a result.
The news that this reactionary theocratic cult spawns sexual predators should come as no surprise.
What I Wish I Knew Before My First Relationship
Back to Top Post by Sierra on Aug 4, He definitely saw me as a fresh new extension of himself and also a possession. He also liked to detail in front of my mother how I was the more physically attractive of the two of us, and made the claim that as my father he had the right to see me naked I was Another time when we went out shopping he commented that other men would probably assume I was his girlfriend like hell they would.
The Quiverfull Movement is a combination of several of the biggest disgraces in the history of the world: Christian Fundamentalism, anti-feminism, and Child indoctrination. The sum of all that is a religious movement where people reject all birth control, including natural methods; men are in.
How many home births has Michelle experienced? Two of Michelle’s children have been born at home Jinger and Joseph. Why is it a family rule not to dance? It is not a rule but is a personal conviction that both Jim Bob and Michelle share. Do the Duggars give their kids timeouts? Yes, but typically not for correction. When the children are becoming overly rowdy, Michelle tells them to grab a book and sit quietly to calm down. How do Jim Bob and Michelle effectively bathe their little ones on a regular basis?
It’s an assembly line. They gather all the necessary items pajamas, towels, diapers, etc , fill the tub, and try to bathe the cleanest child first.
