America's Most Urgent Problem

Marriage breakdown in America is ruining our nation. Where you see Divorce, Cohabitation (Living Together) and “hooking up” you also see a massive increase in women having children without the benefit of marriage. Last year, the U.S. illegitimacy rate had grown to 42 percent. In 1950 the rate of out of marriage births was just 4 percent.

The 1.7 million out-of-wedlock babies born last year and their unmarried mothers now look to the American tax-payer as their financial father. The consequences of this are staggering: As government becomes the financial provider for millions of children and mothers, it emboldens bureaucrats to tax its citizens even more (to provide the money necessary to take care of millions of non-married households stuck in poverty)—a vicious cycle.

7 out of 10 voting women who have children out of marriage vote Democratic; they simply view the Democratic Party as the party most likely to pay for their family needs. National and State welfare handouts cost taxpayers nearly one Trillion dollars last year—the largest percentage of welfare handouts subsidize non-marriage households. America spends more money every year funding non-married families, than we spend on National Defense and Homeland Security combined.

The clear truth is that marriage keeps a father in the home. Divorce, living together, same-sex marriage, hooking-up… these lifestyles result in children being born into households that are mostly without the biological father present in their children’s lives. Living together, no-fault divorce, “gay marriage” and abortion are vicious attacks against Fatherhood. Our culture and our government have become anti-marriage, anti-father.

No fault divorce that spread across the nation in the 1970s has placed government on the side of marriage breakdown. Feminist ideas devalue marriage and are hostile toward men. Many of our courts are heavily biased toward the feminist agenda. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg asserted that the concept of husband-breadwinner and wife-homemaker “must be eliminated.”

Romans 1:28 describes most of our leader’s thinking in government, education, media and business: “And because they did not think it worthwhile to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them over to a worthless mind to do what is morally wrong.”

The King James Bible calls it a reprobate mind and the Amplified Bible says that it is a base and condemned mind. Meaning that they are void of judgment and unable to discern or distinguish what is wise. A nation that “plays” at marriage is bound to collapse.

The destruction of the marriage bond, and lack of respect for the marriage covenant is our nation’s most pressing problem. But don’t expect to hear our leaders voice this shameful truth.
