Dear Gentle Reader(s), yesterday, NPR’s “Morning Edition” featured a story about the Quiverfull Movement, which calls for “Christian” women to have as many children as possible, for Jesus.

There’s a lengthy quote from a leader of the group; here’s a cut from the transcript available on line:

[Children who “spread the message of Christ is] 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."

A Christian God, that is. Campbell says if believers don't starting reproducing in large numbers, biblical Christianity will lose its voice.

"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.

The evangelical movement’s sect, one is to believe, is in a breeding contest with members of another religion?  That’s scary.

One wonders if these good people, and the good breeders of Islam, have no recollection of Nazi Germany in the 1930s and their plan to breed a master race.

Hard to trust, easy to verify.
