Men and marriage: follow the money...
I note Letha Scanzoni who has betrayed Biblical Christian faith so she may promote sexual immorality is directing readers of her "Web Explorations" list to come here and read what she terms this "anti-feminist Christian blog." She's right: this blog is Christian; and we are utterly opposed to the heresy of feminism, seeking in every way possible to warn souls to flee this path of evil that ends in Hell.
But make no mistake: my brother, David, and I are great lovers womanhood and femininity as God our Father created it; and we are loved by and love our mothers, wives, daughters, and sisters in Christ.
Anyhow, welcome! We hope you will take time to explore this blog and to find all the reasons to turn to Christ, and away from Letha Scanzoni along with all those others who make a living off calling good evil and evil good.

(Tim, w/thanks to David C.) After an extended period of time trying to get our Executive Director to accept a salary increase she richly deserved, the other board members of a non-profit I served asked me to find out to find out what was behind her resistance to the increase. Tearing up, she said, "I don't ever want to earn more than my husband again."
She had been a pro-abortion feminist, but now that she had turned in faith to Jesus, she was unwilling to return to a position or salary that she judged might jeopardize her submission to her husband or her obedience to the Word of God. I was shocked and have never forgotten that day.
This brought to mind by a Pew Research Center Report released today showing that men benefit from marriage more than women do because more men than women marry up...
Apparently the fruit of feminism is that, instead of husbands giving themselves up for their wives, wives now give themselves up for their husbands. AP reports:

Historically, marriage was the surest route to financial security for women. Nowadays it's men who are increasingly getting the biggest economic boost from tying the knot, according to a new analysis of census data.
The changes, summarized in a Pew Research Center report being released Tuesday, reflect the proliferation of working wives over the past 40 years — a period in which American women outpaced men in both education and earnings growth. A larger share of today's men, compared with their 1970 counterparts, are married to women whose education and income exceed their own, and a larger share of women are married to men with less education and income.
"From an economic perspective, these trends have contributed to a gender role reversal in the gains from marriage," wrote the report's authors, Richard Fry and D'Vera Cohn.
