you don't have to be a conservative christian to be a jerk
Thank you Joy Behar and George Lopez for showing that Mark Driscoll and John Hagee aren't the only jerks who don't understand stay-at-home dads.
It seems to me that politics (for lack of a better term) isn't a straight line but a circle. The farther you get to the left or the right the closer you actually get.
Thus the reason 2 people on the left and on the far right come to the same conclusions. It's not just stay-at-home dads. With issues like swine flu vaccinations.
Let me be clear on one thing. Joy Behar and George Lopez don't represent everyone on the left any more than Mark Driscoll and John Hagee represent everyone on the right. I'm just saying if you go far enough the ends tend to touch.
So for all the people, on either side, who think that a dad staying home to raise their kids is wrong. Go ahead. You are entitled to your opinion. (and I'm entitled to mine, which happens to be you are kind of an ass)
But I love my kids. I love being involved in their lives. Raising them to be men of integrity and kindness and humility and passion is the major goal in my life. And I am happy with that.
And I am thankful for the brotherhood of other men doing the same thing.
