Today's Unfortunate Thought

A Christian fundamentalist website which collects donations for vasectomy reversals really shouldn't call itself Blessed Arrows. I know that the term refers to the great quiver-full of children men are supposed to sire (according to the Quiverfull movement). But it's still a very bad name.

I'm not at all happy with the dogma of the Quiverfull movement. It explicitly denies women's equality and women's rights to their own bodies (which are seen as just on loan from god who wants women to have children) and it also ignores the population pressures on this planet. Why are all fundamentalists always about the total control of women?
