Demonstrating how NOW is working to destroy moral values of this nation.
National Organization of Women has become an association of people who are working to recreate society in their twisted world view of relative morality. In this column I want to demonstrate how this organization wants to demean men, and place women on a pedestal above reproach and in a place which men are not allowed to work to become better people.
NOW has long been upset with a group of men called Promise Keepers. This is a nationwide group of men who want to work to improve their relationships with God, society in general and women in particular. The group has seven promises they work to keep, mostly centered on their devotion to and love of Jesus Christ. One promise they have committed to is, "A Promise Keeper is committed to building strong marriages and families through love, protection and biblical values."
This sort of thing is upsetting to NOW, particularly the statement of biblical values. In the column they point out that Promise Keepers cites Ephesians chapter 5 verse 22. From the King James Bible, "Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord." The women at now believe this is a call to have women return to the turn of the 20th century and stay home have kids and work in the kitchen. I don't know what more the women of NOW could do to take this further out of context.
Building strong marriages and families based on biblical values doesn't mean taking one verse out of context and then forcing women into submission with it. That verse from Paul in Ephesians is followed by the followed by verse 25, "Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it." Could that be any more clear about how to treat your wife and by extension your family? Give yourself for your wives and by extension your family. Talk about total commitment!
NOW wants women to believe that homosexuals of both genders will be persecuted by people who are associated with Promise Keepers. They also think that women who suffer abuse at the hands of men will not be taken seriously or out right rejected, as the authors stated in the column. Is this a realistic belief? It is not because someone who is working in his life to learn and follow the teachings of the New Testament, which Promise Keepers does, they would have empathy for anyone who suffers any kind of abuse and although they and I believe homosexuality is a sin, they and I still love the sinner and accept them as a person.
This is not good enough for NOW, as they are on a mission to remake society, where morals are relative. Society in NOW's view must not only see homosexuality as a way of life but also as morally equal to heterosexuality. It is not enough to live along side gays and lesbians, we must accept their agenda, and that is what NOW not only wants but demands.
To achieve this, NOW has painted it self, willingly mind you, into a corner in which they must work toward the destruction of men working toward being better people, better husbands, more apart of a more moral society.
Men who work toward improving relationships with God, women, and families, should be supported by NOW. Men who love the women in their lives like Christ loves his church, don't force women into barefooted pregnancy or back into the home. They support them, encourage them to succeed in the home and at work. They support the careers of women in their lives and respect them as the valuable individuals they are. Is it not in women's best interest to be with men who are better fathers, husbands, and brothers?
P.S. I am not a member of Promise Keepers.Posted by Tschida at October 26, 2006 01:20 PM | Email This
