Should You Go to College?

I made a big mistake. I can see that now. When I was teenager, just out of high school, I took out student loans.  Later, I took out more for graduate school. These things have been a burden on me every day since. Now, when I hear people openly discussing for the first time in […]

The Charlotte Riots and Fatherlessness

Sometimes, serious problems can be so widespread we learn not to see them. Such is the case with fatherlessness. The National Center for Fatherlessness estimates about a third of American children live absent their biological father. The statistics are even worse for blacks. Estimates vary, but everyone agrees that somewhere between half and three quarters […]

Life on the Beta Farm: Thoughts on Men and Religion

A lot of men hate church. To understand why, you have to understand one central point: the contemporary church, in most of her incarnations, telegraphs her hostility to traditional masculinity. I recently wrote that churches that reject tradition reject men. That earlier post was a response to this one by Rollo Tomassi. I want to […]

Think Like a Producer

I was a terrible twenty-something.  I spent that decade of freedom and high energy poorly. Most of it I spent hiding out from the world, staying in college too long, drifting from lousy job to lousy job. When I wasn’t working a lousy job, I was probably sitting in front of the television watching trash […]

Churches that Reject Tradition, Reject Men: A Response to Rollo Tomassi

It shouldn’t surprise you to hear that one of the dumbest things I ever saw was in a church. If you have any familiarity with contemporary Evangelicalism at all, you’ll probably just shrug your shoulders at such a statement and say, “Of course.” Years ago, my wife and I moved to a new area of […]

Brothers, You Are the Wall

Dark clouds gather. Friends stare off toward the horizon and debate what they mean. The only ones who don’t feel that something ominous draws near are those so delusional they insist there are no clouds at all. Nobody listens to them. We know we have entered a dark time and the light is fast fading. […]

This Culture Makes Family Almost Impossible

Over at Boundless, a web site for Christian 20-somethings, Wendy Alsup writes about the problem of singleness, specifically the problems of women who want to marry but can’t find a man. She begins by telling the story of how she fell into a deep depression after dumping her boyfriend when she was 25. I thought […]

Should You Be Content Where You Are?

We’re driven. We want to do more, see more, have more. We want to leave a mark, even a temporary one, on this rotten and glorious world. Something keeps pushing onward. And yet, we see that failing to appreciate where we are, what we have already achieved, what has been provided to us by others, […]

How to Talk to Boys: A Response to Danielle Campoamor

The attack on manhood begins early. Those who want to shame men and turn us into lumps of quivering goo know enough to start when we’re young. For evidence, see this romper.com article by Danielle Campoamor. The article captures the attempt to reprogram men’s nature into something that more easily fits within the progressive agenda. […]

Is It Okay for Men to Cry?

The video below made the rounds a few weeks back. The reason is obvious once you watch it. The boy’s instructor does a great job of coaching the kid through his struggle, telling him that it’s okay to cry but that he must push through his feelings and persevere toward his goal. Part of the […]
