still twitching with anger

on the childfree community someone posted about this "Quiver Full" philosophy popular with some christians. what is this, you say?

its the movement driven to carry out the literal meaning of the scripture as follows:

Children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. 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"
Psalm 127:3-5

okay..now i am childfree but i am not against people making an intelligent decision to bring a child into the world. but to say that it is a duty as a married couple(and to women) to abandon birth control and have as many children as possible, or as "God allows" is absolutely insane! and irresponsible. We are overpopulated as a planet and in this day and age it is not necessary to have so many children, especially in light of the cost and resources needed to properly raise and nurture a child.

things like this are glad that i am not 'in the loop' concerning Christian lifestyle fads and movements anymore. God forbid i meet some man wanting a 'quiver-full' of brats running around, turning me into a breeding sow...ugh!
