While parents in general believe institutions serve their children well, many are worried the majority, like churches and schools, have been serving their daughters better than their sons under norms of gender equality, new research suggests. And the only institutions where at least white parents believe boys are served slightly better are sports and other clubs.
Data from the 2020 American Family Survey, released in September, show that a striking minority, just 36%, of parents believe churches are serving their sons well. This share is almost equal to the 33% who say the same about how the criminal justice system is serving their sons. A minority of parents also believe churches are serving their daughters well but that number is five percentage points higher at 41%....
Male and female are still different - Aren't they?
Equality cannot mean interchangeable. Even science proves that.
Of course when you apply politically correct Liberalism - Then you apply the sheer stupidity of the reprobate. Not everybody has the intelligence to perceive logic and reality in humanity and society.
Two types of people in this world...... Matt 13:38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. 40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world."
Rom 9:21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?"
It is often said that men and women are equal in all respects in a cultural way. To say otherwise brands you a misogynist. Now spiritually, our Lord has said that all are equal before Him, but I want to concentrate on things that are simply pertinent to our secular and necessary lives.
Men are stronger and can lift heavier objects. Surely without this, many trades wouldnâ€™t even exist. And of course this could be expanded upon to show that most of mankind wouldnâ€™t exist.
Men are better suited for combat. Therefore without men, the military wouldnâ€™t exist. If the military didnâ€™t exist, of course our country wouldnâ€™t exist and neither would any country that has ever entered into warfare.
Men are better suited for protecting their loved ones.
Now what attribute do women have that is necessary for the survival of mankind? The answer is of course none. Remember, women cannot bear children without the sperm from a male, so even though that is the most commonly noted attribute, it doesnâ€™t stand alone.
God made men anthropologically superior and He made women as their helpmates.
But, in a spiritual sense, men and women are completely equal. But, we have different God given roles. It is the blurring of these roles that have caused the demise of men.
There is a place for sitting down, sitting still & being quiet. But that doesn't allow boys to be boys in that they tend to be more movement oriented and need engagement in a different way. Trail Life USA is a Boy Scout alternative ministry that focuses on the specific needs of boys in a world which is hostile to them. www.traillifeusa.com has several resources that further flesh out the problem noted in the article and offers a solution.
But I do beg to differ with the concept of the church as a "program provider" that "serves" boys, girls, men, or women as if they are clients. Ministries minister to those who need it with the primary function to build disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ, not satisfied clients.
