The governance of a nation is no simple task and covers a broad spectrum of topics from transportation, to taxation, to healthcare to national defense.  These are important topics which are often in the news, yet there is a topic which is rarely in the news and which is often demeaned in the media; the topic is fatherhood.

On June 15, 2008, Barack Obama, in a Father’s day address, stated the following:

“We know the statistics - that children who grow up without a father are five times more likely to live in poverty and commit crime; nine times more likely to drop out of schools and twenty times more likely to end up in prison. They are more likely to have behavioral problems, or run away from home, or become teenage parents themselves. And the foundations of our community are weaker because of it.”

I find it disturbing when special interest groups, school boards, government agencies and media ignore the facts related to the important role of fathers in the lives of their children, both daughters and sons.  I stand against politically driven agendas that promote alternative equivalents to fathers and the natural, married family.  There is no equivalent.

In our current culture of rights, equality and equity, we are constantly fed false teaching under the religion of diversity which is based on the false doctrine that no culture is wrong—unless you disagree.  If you disagree, you are labeled a hateful bigot suffering from one phobia or another.  I for one refuse to disengage my brain and ignore facts.  Responsible and loving fatherhood is as much a key to family success and stability as is motherhood.  It is an area which good governance at all levels must promote and support starting at the youngest ages.


We hear a lot about ending child poverty, yet any party that does not address the root cause; the importance of fathers and stable, married, natural families, is not offering real solutions.


Responsible and loving fatherhood is something that CHP Canada and I believe in. 


Faithful fatherhood is a matter of principle and a principle that matters.
