preacher man- everybody is entitled to their thoughts so as to my previous statement " you should keep your thoughts to yourself" that was wrong of me ido apolg. for that. As for the same sex statement you made- i have my thoughts on that- it is hard on the child/children but if two people love each other again shoe that child love- affection- cared for- and are raised with the best abilites of both persons involved that the child is very lucky its society that makes it hard on those children As for the last statement this 2012- it does not seem to work like that anymore sad but true

it is not a law for people to be married when they have kids. that is a religious choice, not everyone has to follow the rules of the Bible. if you can't understand that, you never will.

i don't want to live on this planet anymore because of people like you who try to dictate how other people live. quit being afraid of peole who live differently.

Well I could care less if they are married our not any more. There are to many people out there living like they have the best of everything life has to offer and then one day you here the children from said marriages say that there parents fought for years and that they wished they had gotten a DIVORCE. The people getting hurt most here is the CHILDREN! Un-wed or Married the Children suffer if the parent's aren't happy in there live's. I want to serve God, be a good parent,and a good grandparent,pay my bills on time, live in a nice clean home and enjoy the things I worked hard for and enjoy life. But now days these parents married or not depend to much on State Help.. They need to get off there butt's and get a job and the State need's to back out and NOT give any mor help. You need to go out and work for a living and help yourself you got yourself in this mess now work for it to get yourself out!. If the Grandparent's want to help than that is Great but the State need's to stop with the free hand out's.

Not everyone is meant to be married. It doesn't mean you have to have 20 kids from diff women/men what a COMPLETE LACK OF SELF RESPECT.
I know men that are just as guilty of this as women. 3 babies with 3 baby moma's and not paying child support on any of them. Just saying the street goes both ways here.

One of the goals of the UN Agenda 21 is to reduce the world's human population. Besides wars, contaminated food, air, and vaccines, mandatory sterilization and birth prevention will help to accomplish this goal. Even without Agenda 21, Nature or Mother Earth will bring the human population into balance with all the other life forms on this planet. What I don't understand is why humans fail or refuse to consider the consequences of their actions. If a couple (married or not) create a child, then they are responsible for raising this child to where neither they nor the child are burdens on society. Is that too much to ask? I've pondered what percent of parents have no business being parents?

Concerning the concept of "marriage", where in the Christian Bible did God create this institution? The Genesis verse about "God created them male and female" isn't a satisfactory answer. The Bible uses the term "marriage" many times, but never defines what marriage is. Does marriage mean the union of one man and one woman? Islam permits one man with up to 4 wives. Other cultures permit one woman with 4 or 5 husbands. I can only conclude that "marriage" is only a man-made custom as a source of revenue for the state and church, and maybe for the purpose of social stability as both parents should raise the child.

Just because a couple isn't married, doesn't mean they cannot be good parents to their children. A license means nothing to me. Sometimes, it's in the best interest of the child or children for the parents to not be married. I'm the unwed mom to THREE beautiful children, and my boyfriend is the father to them ALL..we live together and care for them together..should not mean we have to be married to make it any better. In their eyes, mommy and daddy are married. So why should I have to have a license to please others?
As long as the individuals are responsible enough to take care of their children, financially, physically and mentally..how should that affect my outside appearance to the public?? If my daughter was being recognized for something that SHE did...why should my being married affect her? Regardless of if my children were fathered by the same man, if I was a single mother, ect? Are we saying that our children should get the brunt of our mistakes? Way to raise our children! Lets punish them for mistakes THEIR parents make! Cuz you know, they don't deserve it as much as the next kid does that has parents that are married...

Concerning "marriage", I've encountered the concept or allegation that once a couple (male and female)jump through all the hoops prior to marriage specifically applying for a "marriage license", that due to getting a license from the state, their kids (offspring) belong to the state, not the parents. Hence the CPS has the "legal" right to take the kids at its own discretion.

Is the human race overpopulated? Maybe if we ignore this issue, it will go away. But....

Ha! I know married people that have kids all paid for by taxpayers. Daddys an electrician refuses to work. Mom refuses to work. Why? Cuz its so much easier to sit back and pop out kids and collect welfare then it is to put in a full days work. So don't kid yourself into thinking that unmarried moms/dads are the only burden on the taxpayers. Oh and these kids were planned not mistakes. What you got to say bout that Ms smartypants?

Very good comments above. Thanks. Does anyone actually think about the consequences if this "welfare state" continues? Jesus said that the poor will always be with you. Maybe he should have said, "The poor and irresponsible will always be with you". But then, maybe he did.

Why and how did we get into this mess? Obviously, we can't stop people from doing "the big nasty". What ever happened to person responsibility? Some people are poor because they don't have enough money. So to solve this problem, we (society, taxpayers) should give them money. That policy has been a big success, hasn't it? Maybe at one time the churches and charity organizations provided for those who couldn't care for their families. But once the politicians got involved to remedy this problem, they have only made it worse because subsidizing a condition only encourages it.

On the surface, the motives of our politicians appear to be honorable. But perhaps the hidden agenda is not to encourage personal integrity, but to make the population dependent on the government. I recently read that 53% of the US citizens are dependent on the government. I may have seen that figure here on topix. So 47% are supporting the 53%. Luring the people into dependence leads them into slavery. But that is just my opinion.

Can this trend be reversed? I don't see how as long as we consent to live under our oppressive "Nanny State". I suspect that we are missing something. There is some wisdom or knowledge that was lost or hidden from us. Maybe we are a few cards short of a full deck. "The price of freedom is eternal vigilance." -Thomas Jefferson. Have we failed to be vigilant concerning the actions of our government? But how could we be blamed for failing to do something when we were never taught to do it? Most, if not all, of our beliefs were determined by others, not from our own efforts. Have we been led to believe that "the government" will take care of it?

I can hear it now: "What about the children?" "Oh the poor children". These kids have as much of a chance as a snowball in Hell. But they are here, and we must deal with them. Maybe Dan Savage's Youth Center may help. Instead of forcing on them the crap that we believe, maybe we should listen to them, let them explore their imagination, and encourage them to ask questions. Yes, I've already donated.
Another Unwed mother

Griffin, GA

I am anunwed mother and I am PROUD to be one. My son is an amazing asset to my life and has been my biggest saving grace. I say I'm proud to be an unwed mother because his father was one of the most abusive men I know. I dated the man for 2 1/2 years and never once saw the abuse until after I was pregnant. That was after we were engaged to be married. Suddenly he became abusive to me and it started because of a nasty drinking habit he chose to aquire. My son is MUCH better off NOT having mommy and daddy married. In fact he's better not having his father being in his life at all. I DO NOT live off of WELFARE. I work 40+ hours a week and supply EVERYTHING for my child! Once he's in school and starts getting awards for things I sure the hell want to see it published in the paper because children deserve to know how proud people are of them when they are doing well. There shouldn't be someone in the background saying "No, don't give them the award because his mother isn't married.." Along with other stupid things I've seen posted on this. God created man and woman. He believed that everyone should be married and that premarital sex is wrong. But never once did his son, Jesus Christ, turn anyone away! All of his disciples had issues that he loved them for. He even LOVED a PROSTITUTE! For you to sit back and judge people makes you no better than the ones who judged Jesus and eventually KILLED him. I'm disappointed that this has turned into something big. Its pure ignorance! And Mister Preacher Man, where in the world do you preach because I sure the hell do not want to be in a church with a pastor like you! You shame that occupation!
