In Los Angeles, Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson laments that “the black family has been nearly wiped out since the government has taken the place of the father via the welfare system.” He references a 72% out-of-wedlock birth rate for blacks, and offers these alarming statistics:
- 24 million children in the U.S. live without their biological father
- 70% of juveniles in state-operated institutions come from fatherless homes
- 85% of all children that exhibit behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes
Rev. Peterson’s non-profit organization, BOND, exists to counter these destructive trends in our “fatherless society.” It seeks to “rebuild the family by rebuilding the man.”
It deserves our tax-deductible support!
