Jim Daly is motivated now, as are the host of regular characters in the business of family and marriage ministry. My inbox was overwhelmed with email blasts telling us to keep the faith, keep hoping, and to “stand with them” in the ongoing battle to save the family.
Family Life has Men Stepping Up. I’ve posted the link before. I would expect an extra “re” to be added to Rainey’s call for men to re-commit to the principles he includes in the Men Stepping Up project. Focus on The Family, too, is invested in it to pull off a coincident major initiative that is directly aimed at the SCOTUS decision.
FOTF is picking the low fruit afforded them by the courts decision. I do not know if they have figured out that it is bad form to flaunt evangelical feminism on the front end, or, more likely, its just a coincidence. Today’s email from Jim Daly includes a link to a video about their new initiative called The Family Project. In his email Daly says:
It is time for everyone who supports the natural definition of marriage to recommit and affirm the sanctity of their own marriages. We must humbly confess the damage we have done to marriage by our own collective careless treatment of it. As we continue to distance ourselves from God’s design for marriage and family, Christians will need to take their oath and commitment to marriage more seriously. Though the divorce rate among committed Christians is lower than among the general populace, it remains far too high.
OK. But we have heard it all before. When you watch the video you will see in the selection of news clips make reference to fathers messing up kids lives. What do we expect from them in this five million dollar documentary?
More of the same.
Plus, they need money to fight SSM. Courageous, no?
I want to, but cannot pass judgement on the documentary before it is aired. Lately I’ve confessed to being cynical often. It would be great to have that shoved down my throat.
