by Phyllis Schlafly from WND and Ladies Against Feminism – Who killed the American Family?
A combination of forces abolished the American family as we knew it. The many factors include changes in the law such as unilateral divorce, court decisions especially abuses by the family courts, the culture, curricula and customs from elementary grades through college, taxpayer financial incentives for illegitimacy, and pronouncements of self-appointed experts who think they know how to manage children better than parents.
We must shame and cut off taxpayers’ money from the groups that killed the American family, including feminists, judges, legislators, public-school teachers and administrators, so-called child protection agencies, professors, psychologists, college courses, government handouts and Democratic politicians who want big government spending in order to win votes. The problem cannot be remedied by prohibiting same-sex marriage (even by a constitutional amendment) or by telling men to “man up.”
Feminists demand that we abolish the patriarchy, and they argue that its worst offense is expecting mothers to care for their own children, so the taxpayers should pay for day care for all children. Feminists are still whining on television in 2013 about President Nixon’s veto of the comprehensive Mondale day-care bill back in 1971.
All those who care about preserving religious and economic freedom that is the hallmark of America should realize that we cannot reassert constitutional rights, private enterprise, balanced budgets, reduction of government spending and freedom from government management of our lives without the traditional intact, self-supporting nuclear family functioning as the foundation of our society.
