"169% of girls without fathers are bad"
"xxx % of boys without fathers are bad"
blah blah blah. Come pay $50 to attend our seminar.
Then they have a little girl's voice saying "daddy, daddy, why don't you visit me?"

Do any of those seminars cover the part 8 managed care track?

Sarcastic ad redux:
"Daddy, why do you go away so many nights to be with guys instead of taking care of me? Why?"

I think it is ashamed that with so much trash on TV that something so positive as being a good dad evokes such criticism.

The only time a father should be out of the picture is if he is a source of abuse which. But even still, counseling should be involved in helping him.

To the topic starter: I understand Promise Keepers is a predominantly or exclusively Christian-motivated organization that promotes a patriarchical family structure. Someone correct me if this is inaccurate - I am too lazy to look up their website to find out otherwise.
I don't disagree that their outlook, and their meetings in particular, are a little creepy, but I agree with the other post that suggests they are a welcome balance in the moral landscape of current U.S. culture.
What is truly offensive is the DEAFENING SILENCE of the NAACP, the Rainbow Coalition, and the liberal academic elite in discrediting and shaming the utter lack of responsibility shown in black America - that of the illegitimacy rate which approaches 60% in the urban centers. It takes two to tango, and neither side gives a crap, and that is resulting in the perpetuation of the economic and moral decline of the black underclass in this society.
The black Muslims, for all of their racist and separatist views, at least call for a moral lifestyle. I doubt Martin Luther King, either, would have been supportive of the decisions made by individuals to ignore any sense of family responsibility.
