Quiverfull

I don't know if anyone has heard of this movement, but they basically think that all family planning, birthcontrol or natural control methods are against God's will and they therefore have TONS of children.

There's a pretty good ABC segment here: http://abcnews.go.com/Video/playerIndex?id=2769639

I'm all about choice, and can appreciate people making the choice to have LOTS of children and take care of them, and this looks like a pretty well functioning family HOWEVER I get the feeling that they don't respect the choices of others - for example discussing the children's future and their expectations that the girls should grow up to be nothing other than mothers. They got to suspect that at least one of those girls is going to have a very hard time when she decides that she wants something other than what has already been laid out as the only way to live by her parents.

Heaven forbid one of their 8+ children realizes they're gay...
