Dear Brothers and Sisters:  Gender and Its Responsibility

Thursday, March 13, 2008


In a newsletter dated November 19, 2007 Dr. Dobson of Focus on the Family praised publisher Mortimer Zuckerman of U.S. News & World Report for his support of the family. I have waited these few months to respond to the article because of my respect for Dr. Dobson; however, I do not feel that I can ignore his comments any longer and still be true to the mission of our organization.

The quote from Mr. Zuckerman that Dr. Dobson admires follows:

“The stable family of two biological parents—surprise, surprise!—turns out to be the ideal vessel for molding character, for nurturing, for inculcating values, and for planning for a child’s future. By comparison, the children of single parents or broken families do worse at school and in their career[sic]. Marriage, or the lack of it, is the best single predictor of poverty, greater even that race or unemployment.”

That is a true statement and is in accord with our message as well. However, in a blog on mensnewsdaily.com in an article entitled The Boy Crises I pointed out that U.S. News and Newsweek consistently played down boys and men on the cover stories of their publications. I wrote:

The emphasis on the female and the relative absence of the male on the covers of these major news magazines is not coincidence or oversight; it is a concerted effort on the part of the media to eliminate the masculine influence, breakdown the family, and establish a completely socialistic government. US News provided proof of this viewpoint in an article written by Jodie T. Allen entitled, “Are men obsolete?” that appeared in the June 23, 2003 issue. Some of her statements are; men are a perennial and perhaps deepening problem; boys dominate in such dubious categories as remedial education, stimulant-drug prescriptions, and suicide; and there remains, to be sure, one large sector in which men retain unquestioned domination: crime. She asks, “What shall we do with all the men? Jodie T. Allen was not some disgruntled reader who wrote a letter to the editor, but a paid member of the staff of US News & World Report. She is on the Zuckerman payroll. Thee Mortimer B. Zuckerman, Editor-in-Chief of US News, owner of The New York Daily News, real estate magnate, and billionaire. A man with these credentials cannot claim ignorance; he knows the effects of lambasting the male in his national news magazine. All the cover stories and this article written by Jodie T. Allen are part of a strategy to breakdown the family. Mr. Zuckerman is evil. He is a power among those who would destroy our way of life.

In light of the above it seems strange that Dr. James C. Dobson considers Zuckerman’s comments to be worthy of a special letter of appreciative acknowledgement. However, upon reflection I realized that for all the many years that I have been reading Dr. Dobson’s newsletters, I do not recall that he ever addressed manhood. His organization will try to lay claim to their interest in manhood by their suppport of the Promise Keepers, a well funded impotent organization that needed Biblical direction to figure out why they were men, and then didn’t undertand it. This well funded organization went into backruptcy; the fate of all organizations that lose their virility.

In his concern for the family Dr. Dobson refers to fatherhood, as though it were a job clasification such as plumber or accountant. He neglects to go through the chain beginning with manhood, then being a husband, and then finally a father. Everything begins with manhood. Everything.

The readers of MND frequently commented that Dr. Dobson never addresses the men who are in jail because of false allegations of rape, sexual harrassment or spousal abuse. He does not address the men who are in the equivalent of debtors prison because they cannot keeep up with child support payments, not infrequently for children that are not theirs. He does not address the men that have not seen their children for years and for no wrongdoing on their part.

Dr. Dobson is too busy worrying about Muslims and homosexuals to address the needs of men, those whom God gave the authority and direction to care for his world. I think Dr. Dobson’s main interest is to promote his religion through government fiat, and all else takes second place. Consequently, efforts to preserve the family have failed on all fronts; the rate of marriage has fallen, and the rates of divorce and adultery have increased. The takeover of the administration of child care has reached the point where biological parents are merely the custodians of the governments children.Apparently Mr. Zuckerman and Dr. Dobson do have one major commonality of thought; neither of them promote the development of real men. The former by design and the latter thorugh ignorance. By ignorance I do not mean the lack of intelligence, for Dr. Dobson is a brilliant man; however, he does not have any knowledge of the principle of gender and how it affects the lives we were ordained to live. He accepts the concept of the equality of the sexes in the workplace, as though the development of the workplace was the objective of human existence. The objective of all existence including human, is the propagation and preservation of the species. The masculine principle provides the environment and means for the feminine principle to bring forth life and nurture it. Only men can provide that environment. Real men.

Since men of such diverse careers as Mr. Zuckerman and Dr. Dobson fail to support the development of manhood it is only natural that society has become impotent. The government has stepped in to fill the void that resulted from the suppression of male authority and has reached its tentacles into every area of our lives. Focus on the Family is also affected by this same malady and its receipt of contributions has fallen off, its staff has decreased, and its influence has waned. Bye bye Dr. Dobson—Mr. Zuckerman is laughing at you.
