This will all end in tears

  • That poor boy who married Kim Kardashian.


  • The people who thought Obama was going to be the messiah.


  • England

  • France

  • People who think they'll be saved if they pander to Islam


  • Fans who think the Redskins are going to the Playoffs this year


  • People who actually think there will be peace in the Middle East before the Second Coming

  • The Arab Spring

  • Insisting that you and your wife must wait until everything is perfect before she can get pregnant ten or fifteen years from now

  • This, unless marriage (not necasarily to the natural father since the odds are that he's no prize to begin with) and/or adoption are also talked about. Single motherhood is no picnic. Financially, emotionally or physically it's a struggle every day.

    My mother was a widow and although she was as strong as an Amazon it was hard. She was simply heroic. Most young girls aren't ready to be heroic and they blow it horribly. Gangs and prisons are full of the sons of single mothers. Of course Mama didn't mean for things to go that way but she was busy and tired and she had no-one watching her back.  Let's not kid ourselves. Go talk to a cop, or an ermergency room nurse or visit the mourge and you'll  find a lot stories about kids who ran into the boogie man. He's not in the woods and he's not hiding in the alley, he's mommy's boyfriend and he was invited in.

    Excellent post, Dymphna, albeit it sad one. Sad, but true.

    Succinct and Powerful.

    Almost poetic.

    Although the first bullet made me chuckle. I think Mrs. Jenner is going to have to do a lot of 'splaining to the Lord.

    But, after that initial laughter because it is true it your points got pretty serious.

    God Bless you Dymphna!

    I thought of Proverbs 14:12 after reading this ' There is a way that seems right to a man...

    "Insisting that you and your wife must wait until everything is perfect before she can get pregnant ten or fifteen years from now."

    I just about cried. I'm fighting this exact battle and praying that God melts my husband's heart. I have the sweetest little two year old son, but my heart longs to bear forth the other angels I'm meant to see blossom.

    St. Monica, St. Anne, St. Gianna and Our Lady, please pray for us.

    Which brings us to when the age of consent ought to be.
