A tribute to the lost art of fatherhood

What fatherhood used to be:


Bill S said...

There is no "used to be" when it comes to fatherhood. It is as noble and respected today as it ever has been. Don't worry. The gays/feminists/liberals aren't going to change fatherhood for those who hold the traditional family values. There is room in this world for everyone to live their lives according to their own values. The traditional values are one set of values that work for one group of people and the less or non-traditional values work for another group of people. It's called pluralism.

Theodore Seeber said...

They already have. It didn't start with the liberals of course. It started with Southern Plantation Owners fearing a family-based slave rebellion. Fredrick Douglas wrote about it in his second autobiograph _My Bondage, My Freedom_ a long, long time ago (in 1855!).

I reject pluralism based on the fact that 98% of human DNA is the same, and thus there is no scientific basis for it.

Hmm, never knew how much in common I had with that philosopher. When looking up the publication date of _My Bondage, My Freedom_ I found the quote: "I would unite with anybody to do right and with nobody to do wrong."
