Broken Boys  Tweet Button  
by Kerby Anderson

Are boys in America broken? Many certainly are. We see them in our prisons, on the streets, and in news stories about domestic abuse or even school shootings. That is why Michael Ian Black wrote an op-ed with the title, “The Boys Are Not All Right.” His commentary surfaced lots of emotions, criticisms, and profanity from people who read what he had to say.

At the outset, let me say that though I agree with much of his diagnosis, I disagree with his prescription. I don’t think men need to learn from women how feminism empowered them. But let’s focus first on his diagnosis.

He rightly says that “America’s boys are broken.” And that brokenness stands in contrast to its girls who are outperforming boys in school and in so many areas of our society. He believes that too many boys “are trapped in the same suffocating, outdated model of masculinity.”

So how does a boy who wants to become a man develop true masculinity that has both strength and sensitivity? This is where the Bible provides a perfect example in the person of Jesus Christ. He confronted the Pharisees for their hypocrisy. He “overturned the tables of the money changers” in the Temple. Yet, He was also kind and compassionate.

Dear politically correct, godless, liberals who are genuinely offended at the sight of the Christ child in a manger, I have GREAT news for you! The next time you see Him, he won't be in a manger! Sadly, if you can't handle His first appearance, you're REALLY not going to like His second appearance.

Stop, Drop, and Roll won't work in Hell.

Why do black Democratic congresspersons seem so unhappy with record low black unemployment? Because it might mean unemployment for them. And their lives as political parasites will have been meaningless wastes.
