The spurning of large families?
« on: January 11, 2018, 04:03:07 PM »
Why is it that couples who have large families (in the realm of 7-10 kids) are look at as freakish and unnatural?

I think it is a sign of great love that people have large families. Sure there are more mouths to feed but so much joy and good cheer in the household.

I think people who buy into the "contracpetive mentality" are largely to blame. That is those people who think sex is just about a wild romp through the daisies and not about stabiilty,love, and most importantly bearing children.

It's like we as a society don't value the contribution and sacrifice of women who bear up to 7-8 children for the improvement of society, but we honor people who are physically attractive and get into trouble.

Do you have 7 - 10 children, Agatha?
Would you?
If not...
What are you waiting for?

...
Because they are freakish and unnatrual, in this day and age. In the past families of this size were more common because infant mortality was much higher. But in 1st world countries where the mortality rate has dropped dramatically having families this size is frankly selfish.

I find it difficult to comment on this without saying things that I might regret.

How do you get a nun pregnant?

Dress her up as an alter boy.

That's a bad joke. And she's not a nun.  :reading:

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

So women should become baby factories again? How on Earth is a woman who has 7-10 families going to find the time to develop professionally (if careers are still possible in most professions)?

Wait...don't answer...just ignore the questions like they weren't directed at you... ::)

Next you'll be telling us that a woman's place is in the kitchen feeding all those mouths, won't you?  :fingertap:

:lol: Okay...

I was very amused by that for a frighteningly long amount of time. I was going to post that somewhere else, but for some reason it felt right to post it here.

Sister, pray tell why a man and wife would want to make more than two children.  Two children would be sufficient to maintain the status quo, which is in itself an unfortunate arrangement.  The earth is already over populated,  The earth has  a rapidly approaching limit for  supporting rampant population increases. 
 

Copulation, as a matter of reality, should be regraded as a friendly and pleasing encounter between consenting participants, not a propagation scheme. Surely God did not make us into sexual beings for the ultimate purpose of destroying his own world.

Sister,
..

Please, let me remind you...*she/he is not a sister.

*
"She" lies, so we can't confirm, nor deny that 'she" is a woman.

Oh look, here's another example of one of those wonderful, large, Christian Families abusing kids. How nice.

I'm truly sorry, but I can't keep explaining this simple thing to you over and over again hoping that you'll finally understand something so simple and obvious.

That is a sickening story about the sick things religion does to people and the effect that has on innocent kids.

Come on, Catholic Aggie, tell us why their god and ever loving lord, same one you worship, told them to have all those kids, then treat them like, or worse than, animals.
