The Duggars

Good point. Look at all these great kids! I fail to see how less people on the Earth is a good thing. Do you even know how amazing it is to be a human being? To expand our knowledge, to learn all that is learnable? There are so many facets to the human experience, so much that one person adds to it, I find it hard to even understand the counter-argument.

STOP HATING YOUR BODY! If this is what it does, just go with it. Mrs. Duggar obviously is a picture of the Church: wise, yet with an enduring youthfulness and energy. Am I missing something here?

You say, "There are problems with this theology." You don't say? I've got problems with your theology, too, but we're still friends and siblings in the Lord, yes? I don't know their theology well, but they've got "Be fruitful and multiply" down pretty well.

And the haters are not "pro-choice" at all; they're pro-death. Let's call it what it is.

I'm no OB/GYN, obviously, but people can't have sex for a large portion of the pregnancy; before we call Mr. Duggar a perverted freak or something, let's marvel and celebrate the chastity and self-possession the man actually must have, to have so many children.

Just my two cents.

Actually, you can have sex throughout almost all of the pregnancy and without the monthly interruptions to boot. That's one of those things most people don't learn about until after they become pregnant.
