I don't think it is a strict taboo of Derick's faith. He's Southern Baptist and none of them that I know have restrictions on use of birth control. They're usually opposed to abortion, but none of the SBC members I know are Quiverfull.

My county office sent me free yoga DVDs because I'm 65 or older. All because I check once or twice a year to see what they offer. I also have a free yoga app on my phone. All these are from people with 20 or more years experience. Mariah needs to look around herself and see what the rest of us can see.
