The marriage between a man and a woman is the single most important human relationship. Period.
Many have dismissed it, others treat is as optional, and some have attacked and weakened it. For more than half of American-17-year-olds the marriage of their parents does not exist. They pay the price and so will their children! This absence of marriage is the greatest threat to our freedoms.
Feminists have deliberately destroyed marriage. Strangely, they are now so socially powerful that many men are afraid to talk openly of marriage, family, fidelity, having children, sacrificial love, or ‘till death do us part”.
Though reforms are necessary in education, government spending, social welfare, social justice, criminal justice, economics and in the defense of Rights and Constitution, so long as marriage is weakened, these will be irrelevant. Without marriage our society will collapse, leaving us only with coercive government. Our best and brightest tell us we are already “Coming Apart” and that for “Our Kids the American Dream [is already] in Crisis”.
How do we restore marriage? One father at a time by his taking on the sexual formation of his son, not leaving it to others or to chance. The goal is faithful monogamy. All men are inclined to wander, sexually. All men have this vulnerability, for men are made like a shot guns but need to be rifles. Sexually, men are inclined to scatter shot, but to be a good husband and father they need to aim at one bullseye. The good father mentors his boy to put down the shot gun and pick up a rifle. This is the “gun control” the US needs! Without it the nation dies. Many people sense this.
Fathers need to gain the confidence to insist that they are the ones who understand male sexuality best. By harnessing it they honor the women in their life. These are the great “feminists”.
Who can be against fathers preparing their sons to honor all women by honoring his wife with all his heart and fidelity? This is the reform the United States needs. Everything else takes second place in family, in church, in education, marketplace and government.
This is not a political reform though it is massive in its political ramifications, nor a theological reform, nor economic reform, nor education reform. This is not a women’s issue — it is a men’s issue — with massive implications for the good of women and girls.
Fathers forming the sexuality of their sons is the deepest reform possible. Nothing is more strategic. This project will transform America by restoring its most fundamental relationship, marriage.
Men who can so form boys are our nation’s greatest need. Men who think this way need to find each other, support each other, and expand their network. While they will differ on politics, religion, education, and economics, they are united on forming their sons and therefore can invite others to join them in bringing sex education home where they will change it from “sex gone wild” to “really good sex”; one father at a time; one son at a time.
This is revolutionary manliness. It packs the punch our nation needs.
