When I went to this church which was seemingly overrun by fundamentalists, I was kind of surprised to see so many families had more than two children. This one family had six, another had four. My own family that was fundamentalist (the only one who is like that is my father) has had four kids. Why so many? Not passing judgement, just curious.
Why do some fundamentalist Christians have such large families?

Usually the more fundamentalistic sects of a religion tend to have higher birth rates either because they do not believe in birth control or more importantly because they want to keep the amount of adherents high. Think about it, when a religion is fundamentalistic, it is not going to gain a lot of adherents through conversion. Their only hope is to breed them. See Mormonism, schismatic Catholics, some strands of Islam, and Evangelicals like you say.0
They don't believe in a very efficient and life-saving life-ending tool.1
