St. Joseph the Worker and single mothers

Dalrock found this from some dude named Mark Driscoll:

Single guys: don’t overlook the single moms. Jesus’ mom was a single mom & it went pretty well for Joseph.
Mark Driscoll is a Protestant pastor of some sort. In various corners of the manosphere I've seen his name written of in the same manner one might write the seven dirty words. If this is representative of contemporary American Evangelicalism, then you see why I converted. Dalrock has done yeoman's work calling out modern Christians for their tendency to put women on pedestals. If a woman is a single mother it is always either the man's fault or nobody's fault. They speak of the loser father or about dad just not being in the picture for some mysterious reason. No one, other than sexist black knights like me, ever thinks to call out the single mothers on their own poor decisions. I can hear the naysayers now: "HOW DARE YOU?!?! My friend Susie HAD to get a divorce or her piece of shit ex was going to kill her!!!" The modern mind has enormous difficulty grasping the concept of "on average." It won't make you popular but the better course would be to tell these young baby mamas to stop having sex outside of wedlock (if you want to be popular, what the hell are you doing putting yourself forward as a Christian pastor anyway?)

It's downright blasphemous to compare the Blessed Virgin Mary to a single mother. Saying yes to God's plan of salvation is a different thing than getting your freak on in the bathroom at a house party. St. Joseph was lawfully wed to the BVM. He raised our Blessed Lord and taught him about manhood and the dignity of work. The King of the Universe, in his humility, submitted to the headship of Joseph within the Holy Family (contrary to some popular theologians, Jesus Christ always knew who he was and why he had come into the world.) Tradition holds that St. Joseph died some time before Jesus began his public ministry. That is the big reason why he is, among other things, the patron of a happy death: St. Joseph was comforted by both Mary and Jesus in the flesh at the moment of his death.

Today is the feast of St. Joseph the Worker, established by Pope Pius XII in 1955 specifically as a counter to communist May Day celebrations. St. Joseph is also the patron of the universal Church. He is an eminent role model for husbands and fathers everywhere.

  1. I am Mariam used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes...i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Priests Irumole); he does not advertise on the internet, has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps
    for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him.contact him as spirituallighthealing101@live.com He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something
    more.

  2. I’ve been looking for a really good online dating site for some time, but they are not that good with many fake people, and I found globogirls.com, it's actually more of a social network thing for people who would like to meet travel mates from different countries. The good thing about it is that it's totally secure because they have the feature of video chatting with these girls so you'll not share your personal contacts unless you're 100% sure , One thing that I really liked was the tips on how to avoid scam and fraud.
