Editor’s note: If you think this little bit is awful be thankful I skipped all the Catholic-bashing and lying he was doing in the unquoted part of this post. He’s really quite nasty and blaming. He’s calling women ‘weak’ in child raising too!
So let me gently say you really must fight with your dear wife for the faithful discipline of your children…
Have you noticed that no one has faith for fights anymore? How stupid is that? The Bible says fights are necessary to show who has God’s approval (1Corinthians 11:19). Often a good fight is the only way to restore peace.
Pastors and childrearing experts don’t encourage couples to fight through their disagreements over the discipline of their children because pastors and childrearing experts don’t believe it’s ever wise to oppose woman. Plus pastors don’t believe in discipline themselves. Listen to their sermons. Look at their children. Watch their children cast off the church and Her Master, returning to the vomit of icons and sacramentalism.
It’s the rare mother who sees the need for the discipline of her sons and daughters as clearly as their father. Dad, listen to me: God gave you to the mother of your children to compensate for her weakness, so go ahead and compensate already! Not insensitively; there’s no need for you to be a stupid brute with her. Be gentle and smart and Scriptural and faithful and all that, but whatever else, fight! As if your children’s souls depend upon it, because they do.
