Promise Keepers - An Open Letter

Yesterday, I wrote a post about the Decline of the American Dream: The Marriage Gap based upon an editorial by Maggie Gallagher. I was sharing the post with my dearest friend, my Left Coast Operative, and he reminded me of the Promise Keepers. I too had seen the rally on The Mall in Washington, D.C. That in turn, reminded me of a blogger friend, Russet Shadows, who had read my post, Western Men - Rise Up!. Russet had suggested that I send the article/post to you and so I am, a year later doing just that. I will be cross-posting this post at Eternity Road. I encourage you to see the comments left at Eternity Road, here and join in the discussion. One additional post may be of interest, A Western Woman's call for help!, which I wrote around a year ago. Regardless of one's political affiliation, Americans possessing common sense know that something is very wrong within the body psyche of our great nation. You are the men who can change that, who can restore our basic values, and grow intact families with responsible male heads-of-households. I know women heads-of-household have many reasons for finding themselves there but I also know that women want and need strong men protecting them. Feminism not withstanding - I too want equal pay for equal qualifications and for equal work - "feminism" like all things that were or may have been well-intended has had a markedly adverse impact on women of America and upon their children. Legislation that drives the man/husband from the home and criminalizes his presence in the home with his children as "welfare fraud" must be overturned. I believe that a young couple starting out may find themselves in dire financial straits but our legislative policies must be designed to give them a hand up, not a "kicked out", path to success. By that I mean, the mothers should be denied "welfare" if the husbands are not in the home and the welfare dollars should augment the husband's salary as well as decrease as the husband/provider rises in his employment through hard-work and/or educational advancement. It is strong families and only strong families based in the Judeo-Christian heritage of our nation that will see us through the tough times ahead. I myself am headed off to church now, or soon, but may be back to finish this letter to you - our future. [Or I may let this one stand as it is.] The post I wrote yesterday about the Marriage Gap was poorly written but I hope you will overlook the inadequacy and find the message there. More later.... And thank you for all of the work you are doing "keeping" your promises and encouraging young men to do the same... One more link contributed by Robes, How liberalism leads to slavery. Promise Keepers can be found here.
