Hot Car Death: Drunk Dad Leaves 2-Year-Old Girl In Hot Car For 16 Hours On Father’s Day

Hot Car Death: Drunk Dad Leaves 2-Year-Old Girl In Hot Car For 16 Hours On Father’s Day

This is a point I have raised many times before and no doubt will again when similar news stories are published but: Christians have a nasty habit of equating getting married or becoming a parent with becoming mature, responsible, ethical or godly.

By the same token, Christians believe, assume, or teach that single adults who never have children are immoral, selfish, or immature.

But then we see many stories of married parents who commit sins and crimes, like this one, and it took place on Father’s Day, of all days.

How did being a parent make the guy in this story more mature or godly than people who never have kids?
