With shepherds like these...

A Fathers Day call to repentance:

High profile Christian leaders now regularly explain that the explosion in women choosing unwed motherhood is not due to a mass feminist rebellion, but due to some inherent defect in the men the modern feminist woman finds herself surrounded by.  The Director of Family Formation Studies at Focus On The Family explained in his book on parenting that:
Women want to marry and have daddies for their babies.  But if they can’t find good men to commit themselves to, well…  Our most pressing social problem today is a man deficit.
It's not her fault that she is choosing to fornicate and have a bastard child. It's modern men's fault for not manning up and marrying those aging, grouchy, overweight career grrrrls.

Dalrock's audience is mostly Protestant but Catholics ought not feel tempted to pride here. American Catholics divorce and remarry at rates comparable to the general population. Unless they have the initials FSSP or SSPX after their names, priests are generally loathe to preach on those parts of Scripture that makes modern women uncomfortable such as "Wives submit to your husbands" or "What God has joined, man must not separate." Granted, the Church has no special competence in teaching young men how to make young, thin, fertile girls desperate to have their babies. Making distinctions between ALPHA and BETA behaviors does not fall within the Church's charism, so pastors should think twice before preaching their annual "Man up men!" homily.

At my own parish this last Sunday I don't recall the priest mentioning Fathers Day during his homily. After the Mass was ended he gave the special blessing for fathers. I suppose that should be considered a mercy. Most Christian pastors mean well, but when they bend over backwards to curry favor with their female congregants, men take the hint and disappear. I guaran-damn-tee that any parish which allows female altar servers will soon have mostly female altar servers.

Feminism falls under the umbrella of worldliness. The Church must repent of her worldliness if she is to continue her work in the Lord's vineyard: the salvation of souls. Much as I may joke about it, a "sitting poolside at the decline and fall of Western civilization" is unacceptable to me. The Church is one of the pillars of Western civilization, so the purging of heresy and worldliness and her complete restoration is one of my life's goals.
