Are you saying a single mom with a child is not a family?

============================================================

No.

Again...My posts are about how much it means to have family's that have a mom and a dad.

And to have a thread that title is "Let us now praise single moms" is what does not fly. It sounds like its endorsing single motherhood.



Of the 11 million families with children under age 18, and no spouse present, the majority are single mothers (8.5 million). Single fathers comprise the remaining 2.5 million single parent families. Married couples make up 68 percent of all families with children under age 18, compared to 93 percent in 1950.Nov 17, 2016

A sad trend that has lead to higher crime, more families living in poverty and higher crime rates.

Father-Absent Homes: Implications for Criminal Justice and Mental Health Professionals


Praising someone in a tough situation is not endorsing it.

Gasp! Gasp! Be still my heart.

 

Before you get too excited, "stable' is a relative term.  I'm making an assumption as to what you mean.....nothing but positive traits.Fair?

Do you mean the values of our "Christian Nation" don't matter?  Shocking!!!


 


Introducing Christianity again??? 

 

Sure, does that trouble you?  Were we founded on Christian values?  What would a Real Christian think?


Founded that way, are we a "Christian Nation". I know some object to that term ....but as you say, we were founded on Christian values.


 


Too bad many of the founding fathers did not support the idea that this country was founded on Christian values. The idea that this country was founded on Christian values arose almost 200 years after the founding of this country.

True - but single parenting is not a good one.


In some cases single parenting is a very good one.

I have read this several times and still have no idea what you are trying to say.

======================================

Its not that hard to understand.

Again...

My posts are about how much it means to have family's that have a mom and a dad. President Obama was big on the importance of the family and that happens to MANY children, not ALL children that are brought by a single parent.

WHAT happens to many children?  Family happens? Your sentence doesn’t make sense. Are you saying a single mom with a child is not a family?

This thread and its title "Let us now praise single moms" is encouraging single moms and its asinine to do so.
