This is great. I’ve heard every single one of these many many times.
Please check out Faith & Family Live because 1) it’s a great website and 2) I’m feeling a little guilty stealing the video from their site but it’s just too awesome.

Ah, it takes me back to the good old days of my Father being beaten by a small Jewish woman in a shopping mall on Long Island. She saw our family, with Mom expecting and ran up to my father, slapped him on the face and said, "You beast!!!"

People like this family are so selfish. All those kids are using up the world's resource. It disgusting.

This is great. Coming from a large family, I remember my mom telling us of the many comments people made about her large family. Now as sick woman in her 80s she repeatedly tells of the blessing of her large family. … Thank you Lord for the blessings of family.

What a blessing and a what a joy to raise! All the more!
Your single child will appreciate mine when he or she reaches 18!
Obviously homeschooled, so they contribute more to society than the public school families!

Love it! Now I'm sure my kids will be singing this song whenever someone questions us.

Anon@10:06 – I didn't realize there was only one resource! I'd better stop with my second child I guess. Because I *know* those kids will only use the resource and will never be productive at all!

Been there, done that 7kids thing…and we have had ALL the same questions.
Now ours are bringing their own kids home to "the compound" with them for visits.
And get this, most of them want big families, too. Guess it wasn't as difficult on them as all the non-Catholics (including my parents an siblings) thought.

The uniformed always have reasons why things won't work and how detrimental they are to society – basically how it affects them. It is truly a selfish contention that large families "are using up the world's resource." The anonymous one who made that statement is only thinking, "how does this affect my lifestyle?" They have no idea what great comes from the large families and how it positively affects her lifestyle and that of her progeny.

I'd like to thank all large families for picking up my demographic slack… you see, I was only able to have one child, and since she is autistic, she probably will not marry, have children of her own or be self-supporting. Since I failed to replace myself with a future full-time worker who can pay into Social Security (assuming it still exists by then, of course) I'm glad someone else did it for me!
In order to reach the "replacement level" of 2.1 children per woman, some families have to have more than the "normal" two children in order to compensate for those who have only one child or none at all (whether by choice or by circumstances such as infertility or not finding a suitable marriage partner).

Golly, can't something just be cute and fun at Christmastime?

Have 7 children too (not counting the 3 who miscarried) and sympathize greatly with the song's authors. Omitted from the song were these comments: "When are you going to stop?" and "Do you know there's a cure for that?" But the best response line I have is: "Oh, we let God take care of our family planning for us." Kudos to this lovely creative family!

Even if one thinks it is bad to have a large family, since when was it okay to be rude to total strangers in public?
