What sets men apart from women and children. It is my belief it is God, and government should not interfeir with the traditional roles of Men in society, lest the art of manliness in leadership and as protectors, become a thing of the past.

First off allow me to say that the basis of our beliefs have been forged through our everyday experiences, and the teaching we adhere to.
I find that basically only two camps of thought exist primarily today in our culture.
One is formed by the belief in relativism, and the other by holding a belief in absolutes.
Another way of saying this is to say that one is based on the creation of Man by a supreme being, and the other is by denying this belief, and holding to the idea that Mankind evolved from a primordial soup, and to the best of our knowledge no other earthbound species reigns' more supreme.
Since I cannot argue that any type of order could exist without a Creator, I must hold to the idea that He does. There I go again, who says "He" must even be a "he"... According to the Bible (in which modern Western Civilization was founded upon) - God does.
If we read about the creation on Man, we will find that God created plants and animals first, in creating them a coequal male and female independent of each other.
However with the creation of Man, the Lord created Adam alone and found no other suitable companion for him. So God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam and created woman (woven out of man) to be his helpmeet.
Naturally this enrages the feminist movement, and with perhaps good reason: as we all know how this order, responsibility, and authority have been misused over the generations.
However if this order was engineered by our Creator: than we have no business making modifications, without paying the consequences.
This is why in the past a paternal society was adhered too for the most part.
The women's father served as his daughter's protector and provider, until the point that her future husband respectfully would ask for her hand in marriage from her father.
At this point the two becomes one flesh "again" just like in the original creation story.
Also this is the basis of Christ and the Church, (the bridegroom and his bride).
In my theological studies, the bloodlines always are reflective of the father and not the mother in one's Biblical identity. This is one of the reasons I believe that Christ could be without sin, because he was identified from his Father's bloodline, rather than his natural mother's.
Another interesting footnote is that in all other so called pagan cultures, the women always reigns supreme to the male, thus making it easier for the destruction of Biblical order and design. Whose work might this be in orchestrating such rebellion to a God ordained order...?
By now you are aware of how I think and view the world, so I hope I will not be labeled as a radical or charged with a hate crime, for simply holding onto these ideas of the past.
Personally, I think with political and social engineering today - this is exactly what is occurring in the world, under the cloak of political correctness, cultural diversity, and pluralism.
The great General MacArthur once said that Pluralism is the Enemy; the longer it is allowed to exist, the bigger and bloodier the wars become! I know this Manliness blog, is probably supposed to be lighthearted and entertaining. Yet I would just like for those of you who have an ear, to understand just how vitally serious this issue is, and where we stand on the threshold of human events.
I am new to the AoM community and have joined several groups in the past couple of days. One common sad fact that I am coming across is that a lot of the groups that I have joined are seemingly not…Continue
In the creation of the world man was charged with naming all the creation. Whatever he spoke, well that was supposed to be what it was called.He held authority and responsibility for its care…Continue
