Prejudiced Writer Stupidly Blames Slutty Halloween Costumes and Societal Ills on Childless the Childfree and Unmarried Adults – but Married people and parents are not perfect either

This author’s editorial starts out well enough, with despairing the current state of slutty Halloween costumes for children.

However, I was surprised and a little puzzled to see it devolve into a hit piece on childless and single people.

To the author, Flynn: hey pal, some of us wanted to get married, but we never met our “Mr. Right.” Stop blaming us singles and childless people for all of society’s problems. I was not about to have a baby out of wedlock, so I remain childless.

Spend time going through this blog looking at all the posts I have done containing links to news stories of MARRIED people who have been caught in affairs, murdering their spouses, raping children, and then try to tell me that only childless or single people contribute to societal decay.

Also, pal, I am a 40 something year old virgin. I was raised a Christian girl, was taught and believed that pre marital sex was sinful, so I have abstained for this long.

Do not, do not, lump all single and childless people into the same group and depict us as all being the same, because we are not. Not all singles are out there sexing it up.

And I would invite you to check out the numerous links sprinkled through out this blog to see news stories of MARRIED people, some also parents, including preachers, who were arrested for rape, child porn, and other sexual sins.

Marriage and having children does not make a person more mature, godly, responsible, or ethical.

As I have pontificated on numerous occasion on this blog (with Scriptural citations to boot), the New Testament of the Bible does NOT say God commands anyone to marry and pro-create: both activities are presented as being left up to individual personal preference.

The Bible says, via Apostle Paul, that singleness is actually to be preferred to marriage. According to the Bible, God does not value marriage more than singleness, or having children to being childless, or vice versa.

Here is a link to the editorial by the anti-unmarried, anti-childless bigot, D. Flynn:

Excerpts

    By DANIEL J. FLYNN
    on 10.25.13 @ 6:09AM

    The scariest thing about Halloween isn’t the goblins, those kids egging your house, or biting down on a sharp surprise in a Special Dark. It’s adults who impersonate children.

    … While the sexes may differ in their approaches to staying forever young, both are jealous guardians of their right to take a pass on that most imporant passage rite: marriage.

    A society with fewer children than ever paradoxically displays greater immaturity than at any point in its history. When we don’t allow kids to be kids, they will inevitably behave as kids when they’re old enough to make their own decisions. Restricted childhood necessarily leads to unrestrained adulthood.

    The presence of young ones forces adults to act their age, while the absence of kids enables the chronologically mature to remain behaviorally immature. Kids see fewer kids on their street; grownups see fewer grownups.
