  • Fatherlessness Can Be Fatal

    06/27/2021 5:05:14 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 24 replies ^ | June 27, 2021 | Jerry Newcombe
    There were more shootings in Chicago over the weekend. The irony of these shootings, in which 52 were shot and 5 died (Chicago Sun-Times Wire, 6/21/21), is the weekend itself….Father’s Day weekend. Some sociologists note that what we’re seeing in large part is quite often the result of fatherlessness in America. Mark J. Perry, a scholar with American Enterprise Institute, put out a chart on March 30, 2021 on fatherlessness in America. He compiled the statistics from the National Center for Health Statistics, and the chart compares the “percentage of U.S. births to unmarried women by race” for the year...
  • 'Happy Father's Day to all, including the Radical Left, RINOs and other Losers of the world:' Donald Trump releases statement blasting rivals - and saying he hopes 'everyone will come together!'

    Former President Donald Trump sent a short Father's Day message aimed at his political adversaries on Sunday, blasting them as 'losers'. Trump is banned from Twitter and Facebook had to release the 22 word statement through his political action committee. The message was then retweeted by his supporters. It said: 'Happy Father's Day to all, including the Radical Left, RINOs, and other Losers of the world. 'Hopefully, eventually, everyone will come together!'

    My husband and I met in high school. I had a stepfather who took delight in hurting people, once, after stacking two cords of firewood, he told me that I could not eat until I stacked two more. I realized he was trying to break me, to save my life I decided to run away from him so I jumped off a two story balcony and angels softened my landing. I determined that I was going to try and find my dad. In the woods I heard God telling me to go back, that a rescue was coming to save...

  • Two Things That Inspire My 'Father Factor'

    06/20/2021 6:39:58 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 2 replies ^ | June 20, 2021 | Paul Isaacs
    How relevant are fathers in the lives of their children? The answer can actually be calculated. According to research from the U.S. Census Bureau, when a child is raised without a father, he or she is four times more likely to live in poverty, seven times more likely to face teen pregnancy and twice as likely to drop out of school. Perhaps even more chilling is what that research reveals as a correlation between fatherlessness and our societal malaise. That same study found that “18.3 million children, 1 in 4, live without a biological, step or adoptive father in the...

    People make fun of Hollywood’s idealized family of the 50s.But I would point out that every single episode of every one of those shows taught a life lesson geared to values that - at the time – consisted of a universal moral code: the value of telling the truth, the virtue of hard work, patriotism, what it means to be honorable, why loyalty matters, what personal responsibility consists of. In other words bedrock American values that are often looked down on, snickered at and scorned by today’s cultural elites in Hollywood, education and Washington.Ever since that era Hollywood has been...

    Dear American friends, if this 4th of July George Washington, John Adams, Benjamin Rush and the rest of our Founding Fathers were to come back from the grave, they would rebuke and testify against America for her national departure from Almighty God, the laws of nature and of nature's God and our founding principles, The most astounding thing would be upon their return would be that the majority of American’s would NOT have an ear to hear them and would fully reject them outright. It is true that we live in another type of day today; one that abounds with...

    The family unit (i.e., Father and Mother) is Almighty God’s design to protect and insulate mankind from the immoral ravishings, which manifest themselves by the violations of the moral absolutes instilled at the beginning of the creation (Gen. 1:1-31, Ex 20:1-17, Mark 10:19, Rom. 13:9, Heb. 13:4). It is a strong family unit that rests and abides on the moral absolutes of time that will keep and preserve society from decadence violence and social breakdown. When these moral absolutes are rejected, the horrific consequences that follow are devastating to the children and nation. In light of Father's Day, godly fathers...

    For years, many in the United States have been crying out to our past Presidents and Government (i.e., Washington D.C.) to do more and more to fix our national ills. The notion that Big Government has all our answers and the solutions we need in this very chaotic and unstable world is a fairy tale. Our Founding Fathers wisely understood that the less power government possessed the better off we as Americans would be. Our Foundering Fathers fully comprehend that with the abandonment of Judeo/ Christian foundations and principles that our government would be transformed into an ever controlling monster...

    Looking back at life as we once knew it — before any lockdowns and before the word ‘pandemic’ became an integral part of our vocabulary — feels like a distant memory. While many of the state and local government restrictions are waning, there are some things about our daily lives that may never go back to the way they were. Mask mandates still persist in many private businesses, the economy has yet to fully recover here in LA, and there remains a hesitancy by some to participate in heavily crowded events. Yet, not all of the radical changes we have...

    A little boy was once asked to define Father’s Day. He thought for a moment and then said, “It is just like Mother’s Day, only you don’t spend as much on the present.”While that joke might earn a few laughs, it is easy to be “down” on fathers today. As we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, another crisis remains: fatherlessness. The National Fatherhood Initiative writes, “There is a father absence crisis in America. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 18.3 million children, 1 in 4, live without a biological, step, or adoptive father in the home. Consequently, there is a...

    In January 1995, I made a list of 18 attributes that described the type of man I wanted to marry. The list included "wants children," "high family ties -- loves his mother," "secure in themselves" and "social." Three years later, I married such a man. A man who more than met the criteria, Jimmy Cushman. I first knew that we would marry when he was helping me hang curtains in my house. Standing in front of a window, wearing jeans, hammer in hand, he was staring up, determining the next steps. In a flash, I knew that we would one...

    Fathers matter. A child without a good father figure grows up with a disadvantage that cannot be erased by money, education or fame. Activists claim that whites and police are primarily responsible for holding blacks back. In truth, black father figures are the foremost differentiating factor in their offspring’s quality of life. 69 percent of black children are born to unmarried mothers, according to the latest data from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In contrast, the CDC reports that 28 percent of non-Hispanic whites are born to unmarried mothers. The CDC statistics account for a mother’s marital status at...
