Well this is…. very interesting. And a problem I had no idea was this prevalent in our country.
Kudos to you, Mr. Everett.
“The star of the 1998 film Shakespeare in Love blazed a trail for gay actors when he came out as homosexual 20 years ago.
However, he has been criticised by gay rights groups after giving an interview in which he decried same-sex couples who have children.
The 53-year-old told the Sunday Times Magazine that his mother Sara had met his boyfriend but “still wishes I had a wife and kids.”
“She thinks children need a father and a mother and I agree with her,” he said. “I can’t think of anything worse than being brought up by two gay dads.
“Some people might not agree with that. Fine! That’s just my opinion. — The UK Telegraph”

Awesome report on a book I’m now inclined to read for myself; “Swagger” by Lisa Bloom, and 7 ways to raise high-achieving, well-read, intellectually stimulated boys in this world of pandering screens and video games.
“As Lisa Bloom states: ‘If a violent criminal knocked on your front door and said he’d like some time alone with your son to sing some catchy and slickly packaged songs he’d written about life on the streets and behind bars, would you give him ten bucks, show him to your son’s room, and leave the two of them alone for hours, unmonitored?’
This paraphrase from the third chapter of Swagger kept me reading. It made me laugh and, at the same time, had me thinking ‘You couldn’t have put it any better’. Before this I wasn’t sure if I was going to finish reading Swagger. This is because it starts out with an alarming bunch of statistics and research into how girls are outperforming boys at every level of school, in every subject.
Boys are being kicked out of preschool at four times the rate of girls and girls dominate the top 10 percent of the class, while boys crowd the bottom 10 percent.

…… WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO??!?!?!?!
Couple who would have aborted disabled son awarded $4.5 million for ‘wrongful birth’ | LifeSiteNews.com
This is such a strange story.
How can anyone say to their child, “If we had known what you were going to be like before you were born, we would have aborted you.” ?
It sounds like they are using the money to make his life better, which may be the only good to come out of something like this. $4.5 million is an awful lot of money.
The fact that the case has been heard and ruled with a verdict though sets all kinds of precedence that is going to lead to more horrible things down the road ….
Where is this country going?
Another great article from Jennifer Fulwiler.
Some excellent points are made.
“Homeschooling isn’t for everyone. There are a lot of reasons a family might choose a different model of education, but I’ve come to think that a bad dynamic between parents and kids shouldn’t be one of them. I used to think that those daily battles of wills were a bug in the homeschooling system; now I see them as a feature. Homeschooling acts as a magnifying glass, enlarging your view of any cracks that run through the foundation of your family, thus allowing you to address them before they grow larger and deeper.”
