Father’s Day Weekend 2018

This Sunday is Father’s Day.

Sunday, and every day, may we remember the men to whom we owe so much, including our very lives.

Fathers are essential to every child’s development, despite what progressives would have you believe.

How much healthier would our national culture be if every child had a dedicated, responsible, and involved father? Too much of the dysfunction we see in our culture can be traced back to the false narrative that a child raised by a single mother does just as well as one raised by a mother and father.

About Father’s Day:

Father’s Day is a celebration honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society. …

A customary day for the celebration of fatherhood in CatholicEurope is known to date back to at least the Middle Ages, and it is observed on 19 March, as the feast day of Saint Joseph, who is referred to as the fatherly Nutritor Domini (“Nourisher of the Lord”) in Catholicism and “the putative father of Jesus” in southern European tradition. This celebration was brought to theAmericas by the Spanish and Portuguese, and in Latin America, Father’s Day is still celebrated on 19 March. The Catholic church actively supported the custom of a celebration of fatherhood on St. Joseph’s day from either the last years of the 14th century or from the early 15th century, apparently on the initiative of the Franciscans.

In the Coptic Church, the celebration of fatherhood is also observed on St Joseph’s Day, but the Copts observe this celebration on July 20. This Coptic celebration may date back to the fifth century. …

Father’s Day was not celebrated in the US, outside Catholic traditions, until the 20th century. As a civic celebration in the US, it was inaugurated in the early 20th century to complementMother’s Day by celebrating fathers and male parenting.

I wrote this several years ago, and it bears repeating:

We’re supposed to believe that it’s just as well to have no dad and just a mom, or two dads and no mom, or two moms and no dad. Now the “abnormal” home is the one with a traditional heterosexual married couple as parents. We’re supposed to “celebrate” the “diversity” of various types of families. I’m not buying it; are you?

No one will ever convince me that I would have been just as well off if I hadn’t had my dear old dad to love me, guide me, teach me, cherish me. Girls need dads and boys need dads. Science tells us so, just so long as it’s truly objective science. But that’s a thing of the past, too–objective science. Uncorrupted-by-political-correctness science.

Sometimes, we have to go overseas to find some truth:

Growing up without a father could permanently alter the structure of the brain and produce children who are more aggressive and angry, scientists have warned.

Children brought up only by a single mother have a higher risk of developing ‘deviant behaviour’, including drug abuse, new research suggests.

It is also feared that growing up in a fatherless household could have a greater impact on daughters than on sons. …

Dr Gabriella Gobbi, who carried out the research with colleagues at the medical faculty at McGill University in Canada, said:

‘This is the first time research findings have shown that paternal deprivation during development affects the neurobiology of the offspring.’…

Numerous studies, which too many like to pretend don’t exist, demonstrate a host of the negative effects of growing up without a father (e.g., promiscuity, drug and alcohol abuse, suicide, poor academic achievement, increased criminality, inter-generational child and sexual abuse, confused gender roles, lower IQ, etc.).

All this is common sense, except that sense doesn’t seem to be common anymore.

So if you’re blessed to have a father in your life, then tell him so. Thank him for being there for you. Trust me: He’ll be so very happy to hear it out loud and from your lips.

Condolences to all who have lost their fathers. There’s a hole in my heart that can never be healed.

Dad, wherever you are, I love you and miss you. I thank God every day of my life that you were my father.

Happy Father’s Day, everyone!

  2. Have you even heard about this mass shooting? Have the Parkland “survivors” weighed in? The rest of the progressives? Methinks it does not fit their meme: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5856575/Trenton-gunman-opened-fire-festival-gang-member-early-release-prison-MURDER.html

    Once again, we must go to the UK for news about our own country.

    “A shooting in Trenton that left 22 injured on Sunday may have been prevented if one of the suspects wasn’t granted an early prison release for murder, and an additional sentence for racketeering during his incarceration.

    Governor Phil Murphy just signed into legislation some of the strictest gun laws in the country and called for gun control laws at the federal level in the aftermath of the shooting.

    However, he did not address 33-year-old shooter and suspected gang member, Tahaji Wells, early release from prison this February as a potential factor in the violence that left 17 of those injured with gun shot wounds at the Art All Night festival. …”

    There is a plot that is so intricate, so detailed, so complex and so very brilliant, it is very difficult to explain to others who already don’t know some, or most of the story. The revelation of this plot may cause me, in the near future, to reverse my position on Jeff Sessions and my expressed to desire to have him removed as Attorney General.

    Unlike when I stood alone for months on reports of the near coup against the Obama administration over Benghazi, what I am about to reveal is known by others, either in part or in whole. My preference would have been to have waited and several journalists report what is known at the same time. However, I just conducted a telephonic interview with Paul Preston. In addition, one of my best sources, after months of telling me big things are going to become public with regard to Deep State minions, I have concluded that I am a bit ahead of the knowledge curve and it would not be wise for me to hang onto what I have learned.

    In a nutshell, this paper will reveal that high profile figures have been involved in treasonous activity against the United States, coupled with illicit criminal behavior at the same time. I have learned that some of these figures are on the verge of being arrested and indicted y the Trump administration. Unlike my Benghazi revelations, I do not stand alone in my discoveries. Without the information I have recently learned, I could have made a strong circumstantial case supporting what is going to be revealed here today. Subsequently, from a credibility standpoint, this is very low risk. However, from a personal safety perspective, it would not be wise to reveal my discoveries and recent conclusions.
