On the Persecution of Christian Motherhood

"To be Queen Elizabeth within a definite area, deciding sales, banquets, labors and holidays; to be Whiteley within a certain area, providing toys, boots, sheet cakes and books, to be Aristotle within a certain area, teaching morals, manners, theology, and hygiene; I can understand how this might exhaust the mind, but I cannot imagine how it could narrow it. How can it be a large career to tell other people's children about the Rule of Three, and a small career to tell one's own children about the universe? How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone, and narrow to be everything to someone? No; a woman's function is laborious, but because it is gigantic, not because it is minute I will pity Mrs. Jones for the hugeness of her task; I will never pity her for its smallness."
-From G.K. Chesterton, What's Wrong With the World
Teaching children right and wrong is increasingly looked down upon as a profession.
Mothers have the most important position in the world of teaching children right and wrong.  Unfortunately, this seems to increasingly become an old fashioned (and even criminal) profession.
Children are born with God's objective law written on their hearts, yet society denies this and teaches that everything is relative, subject to feelings or abstract thought.
Christian mothers fight back.

You probably heard of the recent story about A&E firing Phil Robertson for his condemnation of homosexuality and then their quick decision to retain him after the backlash from his fans?  Or the new law that allows public school children in some places to use either bathroom depending on which gender they "identify" with.  These are just examples of the outright persecution of Christian values that pervades our society today.  Parents and private business owners are constantly being persecuted by society for deciding between right and wrong.  Free speech is all a lie when there is no objective realty to base freedom on.  In the end the lie of "tolerance" is just another way of saying, "It is forbidden to forbid!"

Mothers know the importance of God's Law.  The Catholic mother is a woman who teaches her children what they already intrinsically know and naturally respond to.  Children learn quickly when all is right between their little bodies and souls, when all fits together in their little innocent minds, when their parents agree that good is good and bad is bad.  When they get spanked for doing wrong and commended for doing right.

What do you think?
