DEVO was right.

De-evolution is a fact of life, since being crazy and/or stupid seems to increase fecundity. Or maybe people read too much of the Bible and have delusional visions that they are the next wave of Isrealite patriarchs. Wanting 15 children in these times of over-population is crazy enough but rewarding someone for it is downright bizarre.
Of course, if you can blather on about God, some people will sit around applauding the ancient spiritual wisdom of your irrational behavior. This couple seems to have had 15 kids as a political swipe against that wicked science, which does in fact pose a viable threat to the dominance of superstition in our lives.

"We're letting the Lord give us the gifts that he wants to give us and I'm open to more gifts," she said. "I'll take them one at a time or two at a time."

Why don't more married Christians take Paul's advice and live as brother and sister?
They claim that they had to avoid the birth control pill, since it causes miscarriage. Comments like this make me sweat. After redefining abortion as murder, the next step does seem to be to define preventing conception as abortion. To steal from Bill Hicks, think of the multitudes of people whose lives tragically ended before they began by being unceremoniously dumped in tissue and flushed down the toliet today alone.
The irony in all of this is that the artificial and wicked science that allows people to control their fertility is one and the same with the science that turns 15 pregnancies into 15 grown adults. In order to believe that we were meant to reproduce the way our ancestors did, you pretty much have to ignore unpleasant facts. Facts like a simple breech birth would be curtains for mom and baby in the good old days.
Imagine if all women were this dedicated to being godly baby factories. The population would quadruple in a generation. And you thought traffic was bad now.
