And that is why the Catholic church requires Pre-Cana classes before you can marry in the Church.
Get rid of the "Set up for life" social programs, and people will start needing and wanting each other again. Neighbors will start needing neighbors again. Nation and nation, kingdom and kingdom will start working together again.
The politicians, who like playing God, have sold the people of the world a lie for the sake of their own power and privilege (and their tower of socialist Babble is just about ready to fall).
Agree the politicians are a big part of the problem they make people weaker not stronger.
For it’s all about votes and power.
I remember the Murphy Brown/Dan Quayle exchange.
We conservatives need to push back harder. Quayle and others (Bill Cosby) have been severely beaten after they have confronted the mainstream on unwed mothers and the very obvious causes of poverty.
For anyone to be attacked for the number one cause of all of the social issues in our society is ridiculous.
Poverty and violence in the inner cities can be traced to a broken home.
We have 6 children 3 boys and 3 girls.Nobody was allowed to move in with someone.If you did you could leave your partner at home because they were not welcomed in my house.They also knew to marry in their faith and commit to it.As a family we back them up and we all help.If you have children we help watch them.If you buy a house do it based on one salary.The kids all stuck to it.Biggest thing is your faith.Go to church.I have a 30 year old daughter,most of her friends live together.She is married with a child.Her friends say they are afraid to have children.I can’t figure it out.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
“... Catholic church Pre-Cana, etc...”
All true, except the Church has given up since Vatican II. The Chruch quit its true teaching (magisterium) role in the 60’s.
Thanks. You add the missing ingredient. There has been a lot of good points made on why marriage breaks up. You have made the point of what keeps marriage intact forever.
Children with a stay at home mom and an involved dad is hard to beat.
When asked are YOU brain washed to some extent.?...
If you say NO, then you surely are... and maybe delusional as well..
Propaganda is a scientific fact... “Logans Run” is a metaphor of reality..
Intimacy no longer has meaning beyond the pleasure of the moment. A man no longer needs to win a dame’s heart with chivalry and sonnets of love.
On free milk everywhere, as Aristotle observed that which is ubiquitous is deemed less valuable than that which is rare.
I agree, albeit with a heavy heart, with the poster who saw all of this as merely symptomatic of the broader collapse of Western civilization.
It appears that Hollywood is the seat of Satan’s power. It is full of willing subjects.
“...Propaganda is a scientific fact..
I have no idea what Logans Run is, however I do know that this country is brain washed to the extent that they are oblivious.
Thanks,what I can’t figure out is why the my daughter’s 30 something friends are afraid to be mother’s.They have told me this.
“Its falling apart because its very legally disadvantageous to men.”
That’s right, and our aging spinsters will shake their fists at the men who won’t marry them while insisting on keeping those laws in place.
In may area the only people breeding are immigrants; the whites that bother to get married get his and hers dogs...
The article is right in the first sentence; this is not something unfolding at some future point; it is happening NOW, and the political ramifications are frightening.
“Thanks,what I cant figure out is why the my daughters 30 something friends are afraid to be mothers.They have told me this.”
They’ll have to focus on something more important than themselves, and the commitment is for the rest of their lives. It is a lot easier to spend money on yourself, raise an animal instead, and complain about the proliferation of dark people jabbering in strange tongues in your old neighborhoods...
“...that which is ubiquitous is deemed less valuable...”
The women gave it up - why did they do it? the rare thing they had, their feminine value, the women in power threw out. They echanged their true value for nothing.
“The demise of this county has already happened.”
Absolutely; I’ve said for years that the demographic nightmare is here NOW, not 40 years down the road. In my area, Americans are disappearing and being replaced by Asians and Hispanics; pregnant whites are rarely seen, while nearly 1/3 of Hispanic females over 16 seem to be pregnant (and showing).
Neither party will defend Americans (even within their own constituencies); the Repubs selling out the white middle class has been matched by Dems selling out the black permanent underclass.
“...Americans are disappearing ....”
See my post#19. I was astounded by the Mexican children in this incubator house. I suppose I was niave because I knew about it intellectually per se, now I saw it in real life.
We are done. To quote you - the Dems have sold out to make the black the permanent underclass. The permanent dem plantation.
Lest I sound racist - look at the Irish not hired in the 20’s/30’s!!! Irish need not apply - not permanent victim statuS !!!
You nailed it. The article is OK, but it failed to mention the #1 reason why marriages are failing.
And that is the family is under attack by our government. From the divorce courts, from the welfare agencies, from the same-sex marriage laws, from the overturning of DOMA, and a thousand other laws, policies and regulations stemming back from the onset of the Great Society - Our government is dead-set on destroying the backbone of our culture; that is the family.
Sure there are a ton of cultural and social ills like pornography and the homosexual agenda. But none of these would be nearly effective as they are if it were not for a willing and powerful government.
