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

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

The Feminist Goal is Demeaning to Women

Recently, my wife, Marilyn, drew my attention to an article with the provocative title “How Pro-Choice Women Undermine Feminism” by biochemist, writer and mother Amy Otto. Amy was responding to a column in the New York Times by Katha Pollitt, “How to Really Defend Planned Parenthood.” Pollitt believes pro-abortion feminists

Abortion Doesn’t Contribute to Women’s Health

Many years ago I was one of about 250 people picketing in front of a “women’s health clinic.” Why would we do such a thing? I think it would be safe to say that all of us supported women’s health. So why would we protest in front a women’s health

Radical Feminism and the End of the Family: Mission Accomplished?

The nuclear family must be destroyed … Whatever its ultimate meaning, the break-up of families now is an objectively revolutionary process,” says author and woman’s rights activist Linda Gordon. She is joined in that view by author and feminist activist Robin Morgan: “We can’t destroy the inequities between men and women

Every Home Needs a Lady

Remember when it was a compliment to be called a lady? The term has fallen out of favor in many societies, and the loss is bigger than mere semantics. Our friend, Nicole Curiel, a student from Guadalajara, Mexico, writes: It seems to me that the meaning of being lady in

Feminism Doesn’t Mean What it Once Did

We received the following thoughtful response to Darrow’s post, A Personal Story About Why Words Matter, from our friend, Ryan Davis. Because it was worthy of more than a simple, brief reply, we are posting it here, with Darrow’s reply, for the benefit of all our readers. As a book

Created to Be a Woman

When Lydia Sigourney pointed out, in 1837, that Christianity has brought dignity to the woman, while other faith systems have often left women degraded, she was ahead of her time. Gratitude for the religion of Jesus Christ should inspire an unwavering zeal. Beside the high hope of salvation, which we
