Happy Father’s Day

grand_forks

This is the day where I tended to show up over on wimminz, to wish all the fathers there a happy day. The author had his own children stolen from him, by his whore of an ex-wife, in a custody dispute, so it was appropriate. AfOR’s story was somewhat similar to my own father’s sad tale; so, I expected his kids to contact him, once they got out from under the thumb of the family courts. I don’t think they ever did.

If you are separated from your child, or your father, then allow me to sub for either, and wish you a happy day today.

  1. Called up the old Polack (my dad) this morning. He forgot it was “fathers day” and I did send a card too. My dad never really needed a “day” to be reminded about fatherhood. It was something he just did.

    As kids, myself and brothers always would ask him what he wanted for fathers day. He would always dryly reply “No maore arguing”

    My dad is a pretty good guy. Took me until I was well into my forties to really understand him for who he was.

    Happy fathers day to all the men who are dads….to those who are not a father? It’s okay. Dads have it rough, let them have a day and don’t get all petty about it

  2. At church today I had to endure the inevitable praising of single moms and mention of bad fathers during the pastoral prayer. The sermon was not about Father’s Day. Compared to the rage inducing slop that was Mother’s Day, it was fairly tame.

    On this Father’s Day, I recognize how blessed I am to have five kids. I wouldn’t trade in being a father for anything. Happy Fathers Day to all the fathers out there and good luck to all those who want to be.

  3. Sad to hear, Dererk.

    At Mass we prayed a rosary for fathers, we had the priest bless them, and we had the choir sing a song for them. At no point were they bashed, belittled, or sought out for ridicule. I often wonder how many churches have forgotton that God Himself is a Father.

    It would be wise to consider if the world is making a point to tear down fathers…the church should be the contrarian to that. Otherwise why go to church or be a father?

    1. The funny thing is that the prayer started recognizing God as Father, then proceeded to extol the virtues that make us proud of our earthly fathers. Had the prayer stopped there, it would have been perfect. The mention of single moms and bad fathers was just that: a mention.

      Compared to the stuff that Dalrock mentions about Father’s Day, it was hardly noticeable and not exactly belittling. If I hadn’t been paying attention looking out for it, I probably wouldn’t have noticed. But I had prepped myself (and my wife) to look out for it and it was unmistakable.

      I don’t love my church, but we don’t have a local Anabaptist congregation where I live. The wife and I will probably be looking elsewhere soon.

      As for being a father, if God calls you to do something you do it, without question, as a matter of faith.

      1. The sphere (Dalrock especially) has done a great service pointing out the anti-father and anti-male bias all in our midst. Churches are not exempt from that. I didn’t care for the game or hook up stuff that latched on to it…but what it did reveal a lot of was the widespread promotion and encouragement of female rebellion and the terrible effects fatherless homes have on children.

        Believe me, I’ve been listening closer to the priests I’ve come in contact with in the Catholic churches in my little part of the world seeing if they’d have the mask slip off and reveal some latent feminism. To this point I can declare they are solid Godly men from talking with them and witnessing their dedication to the faith in actions…and I have never seen any hint of hating on men or fathers in their speech. This is the type of clergy sorely needed in all denominations of faith.

    You have little children, and whether you know it or not, they are absorbing these little slights against you. You are willingly accepting this faggot as a spiritual authority, and he is telling your kids that you’re a scumbag. That is a very destructive message, and your kids deserve better.

    I went to mass this morning at a different place, and expected to spill dirt on all the male hatred. I was pleased (and a bit surprised) to find that there was none to be found.

    The priest worked the story of St. Joseph into his homily, and talked about fathers as partaking in that archetype. It was a subtle but beautiful message, and I appreciated it.

    1. For what its worth, a minor slight at church where the kids didn’t even hear it (they were in Sunday School) pales in comparison to indoctrination from public school and various Hollywood products. I’ve done my best to find a sane wife who can recognize the problem. That goes a long way towards resisting the world’s ways.

  5. ‘AfOR’s story was somewhat similar to my own father’s sad tale’

    Have you ever told this tale?

  6. Yes the Grand Forks Hotel (BC not N. Dakota). That place got burned down by an arsonist a few years back. I talked in April to the woman who’s parents owned it. They can’t find their borsch recipe. Many people who eat it said it was the best they ever had. Had a good restaurant and bar.

    1. Dear Jack:

      That’s a damned shame. I used to stay at Johnny’s Motel when I went through town. There was a weird 1950s style diner, which was on the east side of town. The Dukhobour museum is a must see there, too. Christina Lake (far and away the best lake in all of Canada) is not too far away.

      Here’s what the now reduced hotel/restaurant looked like, in the summer of 2011.

      Oddly enough, I took this photo when I went there for a weekend, with one of the girls I just wrote about in another article.
