Blaming the father is not what I call taking personal responsibility.
Martin Sheen actually is a devout Catholic who regularly goes to Mass. Sure he may be closer to one of those ‘liberation theology’ Catholics, but he’s not the one to blame for how Charlie turned out.
I believe parents as a whole have responsibility for howe their children turn out. There are EXCEPTIONS but this one probably isn’t one.
A generation of moral reprobates don’t just happen. Look at the divorce in this country and now look at the youth of today.
I have been to every tea party in Palm Beach County and sorry but I saw a sea of white hair. I asked myself the question, where are your CHILDREN and grand children? On the videos of Glen Beck’s national rally, I saw a sea of white hair. There are EXCEPTONS to that as well but in general, we have problems.
If I checked the divorce rate at those tea parties I wouldn’t be surprised to see that it is just as high as that of the nation in general - too high.
The point is that regardless of our politiccal party and even in the church, we as a nation have failed miserably and we have an offspring of indoctrinated ingrates, the majority of whom gave us this imposter of a President.
That is our legacy. Charlie Sheen is Martin’s legacy and I’ll bet his home life wasn’t so grand. We are culpable to some degree.
