Quiverfull (Or Every Sperm is Sacred)

Congratulations to the Duggars. Most people know the Duggars as the family where the wife’s vagina spits out babies faster than a baseball player spitting out tobacco juice. They’re currently working on #17.

TONTITOWN, AR – The Duggars are once again pulling out the pink ruffles and lace as they prepare for the birth of baby #17.

Michelle Duggar says the whole family is excited about the arrival of the baby girl they will name Jennifer Danielle, keeping with the family tradition of giving the child a name that begins with J.

Jennifer Danielle is due July 27.

Duggar, who is 40, says she’s doing fine with her latest pregnancy. Although she has gotten older since she had her first child at age 21, she says she still has plenty of energy and only minor aches and pains.

So why do the Duggars have so many kids? To answer this we need to look at Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life and the song Every Sperm is Sacred.

The Duggars believe in a christian fundamentalist movement called Quiverfull, which means that the only birth control they believe in is the discretion of the invisible magical mystery man in the sky:

Quiverfull is an approximately 20 year-old movement among conservative evangelical Protestant Christian couples chiefly in the United States, but with some adherents in Canada,[1] and with claims of adherent also in Australia, New Zealand, England, and elsewhere.[2] Its distinguishing viewpoint is to eagerly receive children as blessings from God,[2][3][4][5] eschewing all forms of contraception, including natural family planning and sterilization.

Quiverfull adherents maintain that God “opens and closes the womb” of a woman on a case-by-case basis, and that attempts to regulate fertility are a subjugation of divine power. Thus, the key practice of a Quiverfull married couple is to not use any form of birth control and to maintain continual “openness to children”, to the possibility of conception, during routine sexual intercourse irrespective of timing of the month during the ovulation cycle. This is considered by Quiverfull adherents to be a principle if not the primary aspect of their Christian calling in submission to the lordship of Christ.

And here’s a group that calls themselves the Quiverfull Ministry:

We call our ministry Quiverfull because we truly believe in the above! We believe that God is the best birth controller, and we are willing to accept as many or as few children as He sees fit to bless us with. God has called us to this ministry and lives have been changed as a result of us sharing His truth with others. It is our prayer that this site will be used by Him to shed the truth of the blessing of children to many.

So another words, Magic man done it.
