All around me, young mothers are stretched, and stressed, and struggling. Mommy burnout is rampant. And while, I’m sure that to some extent, it’s always been hard to manage a house full of young children, I also have a sneaking suspicion that it’s worse today, that the women of modern generations face handicaps our foremothers didn’t have to. There was a time in the not … Continue reading Why modern motherhood is so much harder than it ought to be
Australian research from the 1990s has emerged as key evidence in the debate about same-sex parenting. The constant refrain from supporters has been that there is no difference in outcomes for children in traditional marriages or same-sex couples. In 2010 Judge Vaughn Walker struck down a voter-approved constitutional referendum in California, partly because he found no sociological evidence of a difference. He put the conventional … Continue reading Homosexual Parenting Results Swept Under the Carpet
Yesterday the NZ media featured coverage of a new proposal that has been put forward by two “senior” academics from the University of Otago, who would like to see all young New Zealand females temporarily sterilised with long-acting chemical contraceptive implants. In their ideal vision for the future of New Zealand young people, these academics would like temporary sterilisation to be the default policy that … Continue reading New Proposal to Temporarily Sterilize All NZ Teenage Females
Why are so many straight people pro gay? Because the normalization of homosexuality is the premiere achievement of heterosexual ideology. “Gay” and “straight” are not taxonomies but ideologies. They are not orientations but disorientations: whether bi-, homo-, or hetero-, hyphenated sexuality makes us lose our sense of direction toward the truly sexual, and the victims of such ideology are children. The words “homosexual” and “heterosexual” … Continue reading Why are so many straight people pro gay?
Is fatherhood becoming a relic of the past? The sad absence of fathers in American families is pervasive and has been growing for decades. In the 1960s, less than 10 percent of American children were born to single women, but as of 2013, the number had increased to 41 percent. Among Hispanic children, 54 percent are born to unwed mothers, and the figure is 72 … Continue reading The Daily Signal: Fatherhood and Marriage Bring Out the Best in Men
Western society is currently experiencing what can only be described as a moral revolution. Our society’s moral code and collective ethical evaluation on a particular issue has undergone not small adjustments but a complete reversal. That which was once condemned is now celebrated, and the refusal to celebrate is now condemned.
What makes the current moral and sexual revolution so different from previous moral revolutions is that it is taking place at an utterly unprecedented velocity. Previous generations experienced moral revolutions over decades, even centuries. This current revolution is happening at warp speed.
As the church responds to this revolution, we must remember that current debates on sexuality present to the church a crisis that is irreducibly and inescapably theological. This crisis is tantamount to the type of theological crisis that Gnosticism presented to the early church or that Pelagianism presented to the church in the time of Augustine. In other words, the crisis of sexuality challenges the church’s understanding of the gospel, sin, salvation, and sanctification. Advocates of the new sexuality demand a complete rewriting of Scripture’s metanarrative, a complete reordering of theology, and a fundamental change to how we think about the church’s ministry. Continue reading “Theology which Confronts the Sexual Revolution and Moral Upheaval”
[Editor’s Note: We don’t agree with the evolutionary reasoning, but besides that, the obstetric opinion and experience along with the stats are quite revealing] There is a good chance that your grandparents were born at home. I am going to go ahead and assume they turned out fine, or at least fine enough, since you were eventually born too and are now reading this. But … Continue reading Are hospitals the safest place for healthy women to have babies?
I’m not a greeting card snob and I don’t spend hours hunting for the perfect one. But after 15 minutes and reading dozens, I had a really hard time choosing one card for my dad and my kids for their father, that didn’t send this message loud and clear: Dads are idiots. Read the rest here Continue reading Fathers Are Not Idiots
Most American parents do not know how to parent. Some perpetuate patterns of anger and unbiblical violence against their children. A larger number of parents fail entirely to discipline, to admonish, and to lead their children. In both cases the results are disastrous, and they are all around us — angry children, rebellious children, wild children, and broken children, — children that rule over their … Continue reading How To Practice Biblical Discipline
