James Dobson. I don’t talk about James Dobson enough, do I.
James Dobson has a question for his Friends.
Are you tired of hearing about same sex marriage coming from President Obama, liberal Congressmen, media spokesmen, leftist commentators, activist judges, entertainment moguls and homosexual advocates? These and other powerful influencers have set about redefining marriage as it has been known for 5,000 years.
Yeah, 5000 years. Or wait – wasn’t it more like 50? The Donna Reed Show – that wasn’t 5000 years ago was it?
Marriage 5000 years ago meant men with whole stables full of women, which I don’t think is what James Dobson is urging on our attention, although maybe underneath he is, the filthy devil. You rogue you, James Dobson!
Do you get the feeling that James Dobson is kind of haunted by President Obama, liberal Congressmen, media spokesmen, leftist commentators, activist judges, entertainment moguls, and homosexual advocates? I do. I think he should add folksingers, too, for that retro touch.
He haz a sad because there was women’s liberation and then women felt all ashamed about wanting to be WivesandMothers.
I was counseling a “co-ed” (oops, wrong word,) one day about some things that were troubling her, and I asked what she wanted to do with her life. She paused, leaned forward and said in a hushed tone, “Can I be honest with you?”
“Of course,” I said. “That’s why you are here.”
“Well,” she replied, “I really don’t want to have a career at all. What I most want is to find someone to love and to have a bunch of children and to be a full-time homemaker.”
So he helped her escape the country via the underground railroad, and she is now happy amongst her 23 children in Yellowknife.
My purpose in recounting the Mommy Wars today is not to express disrespect for women who want or need to work outside the home. Again that is nobody’s business but women and their husbands.
Perhaps you have been reading in the secular press that millions of women, including some who call themselves “liberal feminists,” have begun leaving the workplace and found joy and fulfillment in doing what their grandmothers did: staying home with their children and devoting themselves to domestic duties.
No no no no, honey, not millions of women – just Caitlin Flanagan millions of times.
But seriously. The secular press has been running stories like that all along, dude. The secular press tells us and tells us and tells us that it was all a bit of a mistake and really women just want to let go and let daddy. James Dobson has spotted an exciting new trend that started 5000 years ago, or was it 50,000.
It’s about time the culture began applauding the contributions made by families, and recognizing what a division of labor can accomplish in the lives of children. It’s all about the kids. We must reexamine the chaos of modern life with its constant obligations and impossible schedules, where every member of the family, children included, careen through endless days with their hair on fire. Children are not designed for frantic lives. They need moms and dads to guide them as they are growing up. Obviously, my bias is that the family, if possible, should have a full-time manager to keep everything on an even keel. (Moms make great managers.) Indeed, there has to be a better way of running our families than how we are doing it now!
There has to be a way to make sure that all women will do what James Dobson thinks they should do and not what they think they should do. There simply has to!
