Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment
and the other by acts of love. Power based on love
is a thousand times more effective and permanent
then the one derived from fear of punishment.

Is Fatherhood Being Killed so the State Can Play God?
If Fathers are Removed From Society, How Can Anyone Understand Authority? Is Fatherhood Being Killed so the State Can Play God? Kelty Cosmic 0 Degree Down Sleeping Bag Long In Size: Right Zipper (Google Affiliate Ad) Trenchantly, Jim Sheridan—director of the academy-award-winning “In the Name of the Father”—once stated, “If you want to destroy a society, remove the fathers.” The presence and activity of dads in a culture is so important that they cannot be removed without precipitating collapse, according to David Popenoe in Fathers, Marriage, and Children in American Society. Statistics clearly illustrate this claim. America is now increasingly fatherless. Popular sentiment, along with social engineering, academic pseudo-scholarship, and religious heresy all add to an unprecedented assault upon marriage and fatherhood. From a biblical viewpoint, this assault on the Father is a challenge upon the very structure of the universe and creation—whereas the Father initiated creation, carried out by His Son and Spirit. Marriage, as a symbol of the relationship between Christ and His Church, is made superfluous when Christianity no longer sets the mores of a society—as has evolved in America today.

Search for Identity According to Guy Corneau, in Absent Fathers, Lost Sons—one of the most predictable and disturbing effects of fatherless sons is the lack of a strong male identity. Corneau writes, Mountain Hardwear Pinole 20 Degree Sleeping Bag Regular In Size: (Google Affiliate Ad) As mentioned by Corneau, much research indicates that the lack of a male role model for boys is a source of homosexual orientation. In fact, no hard science has ever been delivered to prove individuals are born homosexual. Instead, the cause appears to be environmental, especially as regards the relationship with their father, for gay males. Irving Bieber believed homosexuality was caused by a too-close mother and a too-distant father: Bieber believed that a “constructive, supportive, warmly related father precludes the possibility of a homosexual son; he acts as a neutralizing, protective agent should the mother make seductive or close-binding attempts.” Not surprisingly, the shattering experience of child sexual abuse can lead some to homosexual orientation, according to one source, which described a study on AIDS: Marmot Trestles 0 Degree Sleeping Bag In Size: Left Zipper (Google Affiliate Ad) The study lasted for four years and included a total of 4244 men. To ascertain if an individual had a history of childhood sexual abuse they were asked on entry to the study to say if they had had a sexual experience before the age of 13 with an individual five years or more older than themselves; and/or if they had a sexual experience between the ages of 13 and 17 with an individual who was ten or more years older. Of the 4244 individuals in the study, 1686 (40%) reported childhood sexual abuse. There were 258 HIV infections during the course of the study, a rate of 2.1 per 100 person years. While the cause of homosexuality is bound to be long debated, an unusual set of statistics have emerged from the coming trend towards adoption for gay couples. The statistics show that homosexual parenting appears to lead to a ten-to-twenty times increase in their children living as an adult homosexual. So for instance, while about 3% of Americans identify as gay—35% of the kids of gay male couples will live as homosexual; whereas almost 60% of the children of lesbians live as adult homosexuals. C. A World Without Private Human AuthorityThe North Face Snow Leopard 0 Degree Sleeping Bag Regular In Size: (Google Affiliate Ad) Some point out it is a tenet of Marxism that all individual authority, especially that of the family and religion, must be sacrificed so the state can be built up. For example, the leftist Nazis viewed procreation as the concern of the state. A statement putting 45 Goals of Communism into the US Congressional record in 1963 would seem to verify the need for the family to be controlled. Here are a few: Current Communist Goals EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FL.

IV. Attack on Fathers as Revolt Against GodAugason Farms Emergency Food Storage Kit - 1 year - 1 person - (Google Affiliate Ad) Briefly, if one views the Father as an essential element of the Christian godhead—as Christ apparently did when he delivered the Lord’s Prayer: Our Father Who Art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name…(Matthew 6:9-13)—then to attack Fatherhood is to reject God. This is certainly occurring as the same critics lambasting fathers are also furious rejecters of the biblical way. Eric Voegelin, in Science, Politics & Gnosticism, trenchantly pointed out that the assault against God described by Nietzsche was really just an attempt to bury mankind’s sins by deicide, or killing God: The madman is therefore looking for man, but not the man of the philosopher: he is looking for the being that springs from the magic of the murder of God…Man cannot transform himself into a superman: the attempt to create a superman is an attempt to murder man. Historically, the murder of God is not followed by the superman, but by the murder of man… ConclusionThe Ready Project Deluxe Emergency Food Storage Kit - 1 year - 1 (Google Affiliate Ad) If fathers have to be removed before a tyranny is established, America is well on the way. Note the following statistics to understand what grave danger America now is in regarding the loss of fathers. To reject fathers is to reject our historic Western approach to life. What follows can only be the bloodbath of liberty first, followed by humans, later.

Poverty: Children in father-absent homes are five times more likely to be poor. In 2002, 7.8% of children in married-couple families were living in poverty, compared to 38.4% of children in mother-only household families. During the year before their babies were born, 43% of unmarried mothers received welfare or food stamps, 21% received some type of housing subsidy, and 9% received another type of government transfer (unemployment insurance etc.). For women who have another child, the proportion who receives welfare or food stamps rises to 54%. A child with a nonresident father is 54 percent more likely to be poorer than his or her father.Augason Farms Emergency Food Storage All-in-One Pails Kit - 1 year - (Google Affiliate Ad) B.
