Quiverful Movement : Rule by number [ the womb prevails ]

I heard this on NPR --> This blunt but rather pragmatic logic poses a real threat to those of us who decide for secular responsibility (e.g. not over populating). Currently a small movement, but as went the Shakers who would not breed so now comes the Quiverful who do nothing but.

New King James Version

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them;
They shall not be ashamed,
But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.

[Excerpt from site]

We exalt Jesus Christ as Lord, and acknowledge His headship in all areas of our lives, including fertility. We exist to serve those believers who trust the Lord for family size, and to answer the questions of those seeking truth in this critical area of marriage.

Whether your quiver is large or small, you are welcome. Come browse our articles and resources. Also, be sure to check out the QuiverFull Digest, our email discussion group that was started in 1995.

Dedicated to providing encouragement and practical help to those who are striving to raise a large and growing, godly family in today's world!

I wonder to what extent these few lines became the focus of this cult specifically for the potential "Darwinian" benefit that it grants. I always suspect that this is the case - that they were chosen for a pragmatic, earthly reason (breed faster than your enemies) rather than for some "holy" reason. But maybe I'm being jaded.
