Your preaching to the choir. Just look at where we are today.

I'm sorry, but I disagree -how a child is raised has alot to do with how that child lives their life, and where they end up.

Women aren't complcating things; they just don't play by your rules anymore.

We'll just pair up female soldiers with gay men.

No, kids suffer whenever the home is disrupted, and I wish there was no one going to war. I just don't know why any woman would want to complicate it.
Men and women fighting together, living together, and more and more problems will happen.
A kid named Jacob worked with my wife a few years ago, and talked of joining the marines. He did, and now he's dead, becouse he was shot by a fellow marine the other night along with a "woman", and then the marine that shot and killed them, shot and killed himself.
This kinda stuff will just get worse. People have a human nature.
War calls for complete concentration, and I realize I come up with things to make people think about reality.
Why are men and women seperated in our prison system?
that's my new thought of the day :)

From the link: In the Army and Air Force, single member parent applicants who, at the time of initial processing for enlistment, indicate they have a child or children in the custody of the other parent or another adult are advised and required to acknowledge by certification that their intent at the time of enlistment was not to enter the Air Force/Army with the express intention of regaining custody after enlistment.
They can't have legal custody when they enlist and if your friends son still does, the recruiter was crooked and your friends son could be dishonorably discharged which means no military benefits.

Do your research on military regs and single moms.@@

In short I've done many bad things, I met a savior, and now I try and stand for good things. Or do you feel I should go back to what I used to do, and what I used to stand for, and still claim I serve God? Like some one here?
Granted, what you do with your life affects me none and it's your life to live, I just find a lot of what you write to be extremely hypocritical. Unless I'm misreading what you wrote, it seems that another man has taken over total responsibility to the child you created out of wedlock. I absolutely do not have anything against step parents(as I have a step mother myself and my son was raised by my SO) yet you preach about how men should be involved in their childrens lives, how children should be raised by a man and a woman. Why should anyone take what you have to say seriously when another man is doing your job in regards to the child you created with a woman who is not your wife? And you wonder why folks take what you say with a grain of salt or call you out on your hypocrisy/contradictions? I think it's great that you found God but considering the things you write, you should also find some humility as well.

No he didn't. The military hasn't taken single parents with dependant children living with them since Desert Storm.

Even though they keep trying to prove us wrong, we PRESUME our male soldiers aren't all sociopathic rapists; we know our male convicts are. You're comparing a voluntary, cooperative situation with a mandatory, hostile one.

I'm sure there would be no problems there either, right?

It makes no difference if she's home every morning and night Gtown, she is away more hours than she is at home. She is disrupting the household by being away. These are your words not mine. Put your foot down, grow a pair and tell her she's going to be a good wife and mother and stay home. Go on. I dare ya.

Those were the days. I'm still aghast when I see a small child argue with a parent.

I don't believe soldiers or convicts are rapist, except for those in jail for rape, just like I don't believe gay men want to sleep with boys, or every man. I do believe, and know when men and women are together for long amounts of time, human nature "sin nature " can and will prevail.

After she became pregnant, I kinda went off the deep end, and bought another house closer to her sisters. I had thought she would never work again, or untill our child was grown.

She didn't want to be a stay at home mom full time, and so I stayed home.
Almost every kid in our family has been molested in one way or another, and my goal is to make sure that doesn't happen to my girl, if anyway possible. There are family members I don't allow her to stay with.

Alot of single moms can't help but do what they must, but I'm talking about those who could stay home and raise their kids, if they didn't have so much tied up in a new car, or a huge expensive house they don't need, and can't afford.
I still remember a lady that showed up at work crying, becouse she just dropped off her 6 weeks old baby at a sitter, and for what she was paying on her new car and daycare fees, she could have stayed at home, if she sold the car.

Perhaps alot of how I feel comes from having a large family growing up, and many were very poor. Like the house my grandparents lived in, they may not have been allowed to live there nowadays it looked so bad, but it was clean and full of food and love.
today it seems people have the nicest homes and cars, but not alot of love, cold and distant?

Women are equal. We aren't treated equally, but we are. It's just a matter of time before we attain our deserved status. We aren't wrong. You are.

GTown, you're a very interesting character, to say the very least. You take issue with women working outside of the home yet your wife works outside the home(regardless of what shift she works). You speak of sex and how it should only be had within the confines of marriage yet you've carried on a affair outside of wedlock. You speak of the sanctity of marriage yet you had a long term extramarital affair. You speak of how children should be raised in the same household as their parents(preferably a man and a woman) yet the woman you had an affair with is raising your child without you residing in their household. That's a whole lot of contradiction.
Yeah, but he asked God for forgiveness, so it's all good. Don't worry about it. Lol.

Ah yes the good old pagan ways. The children should never be a burden to the parents. If necessary send them into the forrest.

You're wrong.

If a person is convicted of a crime, and stands before the judge and says Yes I did all the things that I've been accused of, BUT I'm just asking for forgiveness.

What do you think would happen?

I got saved "born again ", and agreed with God -accepting what His son done for me. That's , and Only that, is what makes me "all good "

As far as your other post, I not only think women are equal, but superior in many ways to us men.

Its all about who does what.

If a lady is using the rest room in a multi million dollar building -who's position becomes more important, the owner of the building, or the janitor who.cleans and stocks the rest rooms in the multi million dollar building?

When no one knows their position, then people tend to get all out of position.
