At this point, I think it's society supporting this family. I bet they're on food stamps to help feed al those mouths.
See, if this was any time before now--even the 1920's, they'd be stuck with kids starving to death because there'd be no way to feed all of them--it just wouldn't be possible.
Some of the food they cook is nasty--I remember the massive pan of "tater tot casserole"--you see the exact same dishes in Fundamentalist Mormon Kitchens--when the guy has like 5 wives and they all have 10 kids each--which those kitchens often need restuarant-size cooking vessels, because no normal kitchen can turn out that much food. I remember seeing a photo of one of their compound kitchens before--everything was(highly expensive) stainless steel, restaurant grade cooking equipment, yet all the women were on food stamps to feed their children.
Exactly. I hate to see how these kids turn into adults. Either they never leave and marry someone else fundie, or they, like some of Fred Phelp's children, break away and never talk to them again.
First of all, the oldest culture in the world--the !Kung, has an average of two children. TWO. That's as much as the mother can feed and as much as she can have--because she'll breast feed for a longer period than we do now.
Really, I can't wait for kids to start coming out extremely retarded and deformed, she should be happy to make her other children care for them just like she makes the older kids care for her young children because she doesn't have time to actually take care of them all.
I actually had to take care of my sister when I was a kid--lemme tell you, it really makes you not want kids of your own.
