I’m Only a Stay at Home Mom

Many women who decide to leave the workforce and become a stay at home mom struggle with their sense of dignity. Society affirms women who work outside the home, but not those dear souls who want to make a home, who have a desire to nurture their children “full-time.” In

All Black Lives Matter … Even Tiny Ones

In the previous post we showed that, measured by actual practice, many who say “black lives matter” really believe that only some black lives matter. That’s the reasonable conclusion from the deafening silence about so much black-on-black violence. In addition to the horrendous black-on-black violence and homicides, there is another place where

Our Antimaternal Age

Original photo all4desktop.com We live in a new era of human history, the age of the antimaternal. From the beginning of time, people have understood that it was normal, natural … yes, even beautiful, to have children. Not anymore. The sexist’s war against women has been replaced with the modern

A Theology of Rape in Isis, A Doctrine of Rape on the Campus

“Pursue no woman to her tears.” I found these lovely words in a poem called The Honor Men by James Hay, Jr. More about that below. Today’s pervasive global culture is largely misogynist: men act like brutes and women are driven to tears. For the most part, life in every

Bringing Christmas to the Dark World of Sex Trafficking

No one can imagine how a transcendent God could become human. But maybe you can imagine a smaller picture of the incarnation of God, smaller yet very powerful. I speak of a company of nuns who pose as prostitutes and enter brothels to rescue women and girls trapped in sex

A Woman Can Do Anything a Man Can Do

“A woman can do anything a man can do.” Most of us have heard that sentiment. Or even expressed it. No doubt the phrase sometimes captures legitimate frustration. Ever since Genesis 3 husbands have tilted away from responsibility and women have had to fill the gap. I personally know many
