Fatherless*

jesseleeIn 1969, California became the first state to adopt “no fault” divorce. By 1985 every state, except New York, had followed suit. Since then, the national divorce rate has quadrupled!

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!
