Owen Strachan: The Critical Role of Fathers

It was heartwarming to see: many of the planet’s toughest and best athletes telling their children on social media how much they love them. In short videos, fathers played games with their kids, bearhugged them, and told them jokes—all in a tribute to dads on Father’s Day.

In a society that does little to encourage fathers, the NBA’s efforts did not go unnoticed. Families are the essential building block of society, and fathers are the essential building block of the family. A home led by a father, especially a father with a spiritual focus and strong character, places flourishing within reach.

Gender-neutral children do not need gender-neutral parents. Boys and girls need fathers and mothers bound by lifelong commitment. This isn’t a prejudicial belief. Downplaying fatherhood sets us all up for disaster.

Social-media support is great. But we need more: we need a society that celebrates, honors and ennobles fathers.

Mohler: Gender Ideology Spurs Fundamental Breakdown of Meaning and Language


A recent article in New York Times Magazine illustrates for us the quandary of the gender revolution and the breakdown of language.

It was a massive essay entitled, “The Struggles of Rejecting the Gender Binary.”

The subject of the article wants to be known by the pronouns that are supposedly gender-neutral—they/them …

… so I marked all of the confusing personal pronouns that I could discover in this multi-thousand word article. I found at least 171 times where the pronoun simply doesn’t make sense.

How in the world do you have any kind of language coherence when pronouns become a matter of gender ideology and you have people saying, “I am no longer a he or she, I am a them or a they”?

What we’re seeing is a fundamental breakdown of meaning and that seen in a breakdown of language.

It’s a subversion of truth.

There can be no coherence on the other side of such a breakdown.

Albert Mohler: Don’t Say You Were Not Warned


The sexual revolution is marching onward—this time in California’s new curricular framework for public education, as they draft a new curriculum for the public schools.

I downloaded all 1,000 pages—and I can simply say, there’s a lot to be concerned about here.

Just consider the guidelines on gender for 3rd graders: Gender is described as “boy, girl, both, neither, trans, genderqueer, non-binary, gender fluid, gender neutral, transgender, agender, neutrois, bigender, third gender, two spirit ….” and so it goes.

We also have lesson plans on reproductive organs and the argument that they do not necessarily correspond to male and female.

You can imagine where this jumps when you’re talking about high school students.

One more dimension I should note, briefly: Parents, in the document, are clearly considered more likely to be the problem than the solution.

Don’t say you weren’t warned.
