    "“Quiverfull” Cult Plans Arranged Marriage Camp For Teens:" by The Young Turks

    Population and demography

    According to journalist Kathryn Joyce, writing in the magazine The Nation:
    "[T]he Quiverfull mission is rooted in faith, the unseen, its mandate to be
    fruitful and multiply," even if it "has tangible results as well." Although
    Joyce claims that "Population is a preoccupation for many Quiverfull believ-
    ers... [and] [t]he motivations aren't always racist, but the subtext of 'race
    suicide' is often there." Still, she asserts, "This is what Quiverfull is about:
    faith, pure and simple." Others remark that Quiverfull resembles other world-
    denying fundamentalist movements that grow through internal reproduction and
    membership retention such as ultra-Orthodox Jews, Amish, and Laestadian Luther-
    ans in Finland. Many are thriving as seculars and moderates have transitioned to below-replacement

    Is it just me, or does anyone else get the impression that the various flavors of present-day fundamentalist Christianity seem to be behaving more and more desperate and unhinged?

    Visit, yes they are getting more desperate. An example in point are the next two WT study articles prodding children to get baptized. The Mormoms have been clever to encourage maximum breeding to entrap children in their cult.
