SUPPORT OUR SPONSOR:  http://www.naturebox.com/thinkingatheist The Quiverfull Movement is a lifestyle among fundamentalist Christians which believes that an abundance of children is in compliance with God's perfect will.  Contraception equals abortion, a heinous sin against God, so the only "family planning" that's done is a prayer to the sky that His will be done.  The Quiverfull Movement is highly patriarchal and often has a dark side in relation to the rights of women and children. In this episode, we explore The Quiverfull Movement, we speak with Kathryn Joyce, author of the book: "Quiverfull: Inside the Christian Patriarchy Movement," and we speak to some who once experienced this culture inside its walls, including Vykie Garrison, who hosts the online community, "No Longer Quivering." Kathryn Joyce's book:  http://www.amazon.com/Quiverfull-Inside-Christian-Patriarchy-Movement/dp/0807010707/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1233348792&sr=8-1 Link to "The Onion" article:  http://www.theonion.com/articles/no-one-should-have-the-right-to-die-until-god-is-d,37418/
