The Quiverfull Movement is all about letting God give you as many babies as possible to build up the Army of God. Think, the Duggars.
We want to make 2 things clear at the get-go:
Having a lot of kids is not bad, no matter how much we laugh at it. All big families aren’t quiverfull either.
Many women have been hurt by this movement, so rest assured we understand the gravity of the hurt that women and kids, especially have experienced with this. Just like our episodes on cults or conmen preachers, we find humor on the edges, and hope a wider audience who enjoys idiotic hosts learn about things they didn’t know was going on around them.
Karen and Bonnie let you in on what they'd name their kids if they had a bundle of them. Then they discuss the origin and widespread reach of the movement. It's as messed up as you think it is. From women not using a tampon for decades because they're knocked up, to the harsh discipline, and vasectomy and tubal tie reversal ministries, it's f-ed up.
We also read stories from former quiverfull women who are, thankfully, out now.
Our sources: La Wikipedia and article Bonnie read from.
