    It's epidemic in fundi groups, whether New Apostolic or Fundi-Mormon. And along with home schooling it's also a good way to keep the women folk busy and in line.

      Never walk into a public restroom while breathing through your mouth.

      Or rather, the genetics that make for the neurophysiology in which extremism can take root, do not come with their "content" predetermined.

      Thus leaving open the memetic route (replacement of extremist ideas by progressive ideas) to overcoming the attempt to use an aggressive breeding strategy as a route to power.

      The only way the extremists can be sure their plentiful offspring remain faithful to extremist views, is by keeping their offspring behind a kind of ideological Berlin wall all their lives.  This is necessarily doomed to fail because information always gets through, no matter how one attempts to hermetically seal oneself off from it.

      Originally it was called the Full Quiver Movement.

      When I first heard of it, I went after it by planting the meme A full quiver, a loud moan, and a long sigh, which ridiculed it as a rationale for uptight males with hyperactive sex drives.  ("Quiver" also means "to have repetitive muscular contractions," for example as occurs during orgasm!)

      I can't prove this, but I suspect that others were planting similar memes, and taken together, those memes forced the movement to change its name.  

      Hence "QuiverFull."  Now we need to go after that one, with the meme "MouthFull," in a context that implies "something to do with oral sex."  

      The fun thing about extremist sexual puritans is that it's so easy to chase them around the block by using ridicule to point out that they are basically a bunch of pervs looking for excuses.  

      So:  QuiverFull :: MouthFull.  Spread it far and wide!
