A: Encourage fathers to lead their families by example and in love promotes a stronger society.ˇI have been married to my wife of 22 years and have 3 children. The self-worth and identity that shape children come from the family unit. Statistics show marriages which stay intact have fewer problems financially, physically, emotionally, and spiritually for both children and their parents. I understand the difficulties and challenges families face as we raise our own children in the present culture. ˇ"Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord" (Ephesians 6:4).
Hanaway continues by saying that the cultural acceptance of unmarried mothers is a slippery slope that leads to the toleration of child pornographers: "If you pursue this course that sexual permissiveness is to be valued, which is the liberal framework, and that you should protect sexual permissiveness through abortions & other things, you lead to a conclusion where every sexual preference is acceptable. An overwhelming majority of Americans believe that those who have a sexual preference for children are evil."
Only 46 of our stateís 114 counties have domestic violence centers and support for battered women and their children. What is truly shocking about the situation is the number of women and children turned away. I strongly recommend an additional $3 million for local domestic violence shelters next fiscal year. [I also propose] a task force to develop a strategic action plan for how we can coordinate and integrate our approach to domestic violence, based on needs and priorities.
