Congressman calls absentee fathers a national crisis

America is becoming a land of absentee fathers and it is leaving generations of children unfamiliar with what a good dad looks like, and Rep. Bill Johnson says that is a national crisis that must be addressed.

The Ohio Republican is the author of “Raising Fathers: How Nurturing and Encouraging Fatherhood Helps Strengthen Families and Our Nation.”

The intensely personal book includes many stories of Johnson growing up in what he calls a dysfunctional family as well as his candid insights into the end of his first marriage and the unplanned pregnancy of his unwed daughter.

Recent government statistics show roughly half of all Americans births now occur outside of marriages. The out-of-wedlock birthrate in the black community is around 70 percent. For white Americans, the rate is near 40 percent. ...

One can get into trouble even if they aren't married.
Katherine Harris wrote:
...Most child support cases fall under State jurisdiction, but the Federal Government can intervene in cases in which parents don't pay child support for more than one year or noncustodial parents owe more than $5,000 and their children live in a different State. Intervention is also permitted when noncustodial parents flee the State or country to avoid paying child support.

Since 2006, the Federal Government has convicted more than 500 deadbeat parents who failed to pay more than $33 million in child support payments.

-- (OIG Launches Child Support Enforcement
Web Page: Introduces 'most wanted' list of deadbeat parents )

I assume the Congressman is making sure this is getting funded also? I would also sell me is pushing for it to be more aggressive?

Judges 2:10 And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the LORD, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel.
11 And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and served Baalim:
12 And they forsook the LORD God of their fathers,"

A generation which did not know God. - Sounds familiar for today's generation. Must be a common human problem.

This is followed by doing evil and idolatry.
Sounds also familiar among today's generation.

Step three; They forsook God.

"Absentee fathers" is a result of adultery becoming free and acceptable to the generation.

What God does to them....
15 Whithersoever they went out, the hand of the LORD was against them for evil, as the LORD had said, and as the LORD had sworn unto them: and they were greatly distressed."

When the 'hand of the Lord is against them' - Then the generation is punished.

A world in crisis

Absentee father's, irresponsible mother's, children who shouldn't be having children, adults who shouldn't be having children, sodomites, lesbians, and transgenders who shouldn't be allowed to have or adopt children, godless parents, molester parents, abusive parents, kids having babys and murdering them because they cry, women murdering their unborn in droves, for any reason, because they can, and a nation that just doesn't seem to care all that much.
Absentee fathers are the concern and taking precedence and priority over the senseless, mass slaughter of the unborn, and even the born when the poor babys pull through the trauma. Absentee fathers are the concern over the mass slaughter of babys so their little parts can be auctioned off to the highest bidders for research purposes. What a senseless, barbaric, Godless society, and world at large.

The best "program," one thatthat actually works, is for Dad's to come to faith in Jesus Christ, then see how their Father in heaven operates toward His begotten Son and adopted children, and see how that operationalizes thru the words of Scripture. Everything else tends to come into a right priority. As a father, I was never commanded in the Bible to pursue my dreams or desires, but I am commanded to love my wife I a very sacrificial way and my children (Ephesians 5 & 6, others).
Hardest job in the world is to be a godly Dad and Husband. There are so many weapons aimed at us as the head of the household. Well said fellow homeschooling Dad!

Besides writing a book perhaps this Congressman should point out that the federal government does have programs for getting fathers to take out time for their children. I'm not sure if this is the same outfit that does the promos for that idea on television - - I know that is a government group, but I did find this on the internet:

Spirit of Elijah needed
Lk1"16And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God.
17And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias,
to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children,
and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just;
to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. "
