About This Web Site I am so ashamed.
Most days I don't really think about it. But sometimes
(I never know when) I look in the mirror and realize I am
supposed to be looking at a father. On those days, I re-
flexively put my hands over my face. I am so ashamed.
Growing up--one day about thirty years ago--I realized
that I would never be able to be the person I wanted to be
unless I could get married and have a family and be a hus-
band and a father. So I found a woman who was looking for
one man to spend her life with and to raise a family with,
and I married her, and we had children. I began to learn
what it means to be a father.
Being a father is so important that many Christian
denominations like the Roman Catholics and the Orthodox
churches call their Priests father. They also call the
women who have separated themselves to full time Christian
service mother. These words father and mother are symbols
lifted high above most of the other words in the human
languages because learning to be a father and a mother is
probably the most important skill any person on earth can
I am so ashamed.
I am so ashamed because I am a Christian. As a Chris-
tian I am supposed to have learned things that other people
just don't know. One of those things has to do with being a
To a Christian, being a husband and a father is a way,
as the Apostle Paul says in Ephesians 5, to help people
understand a "great mystery, namely Christ and the church."
In other words, what we Christians do as husbands and fa-
thers is supposed to be done in a way that helps people
understand the great mystery about Christ and the church.
I am so ashamed because I know that the essence of what
I am supposed to be demonstrating in my role as father and
husband is the demonstration of the true meaning of God's
Oh I am so ashamed.
God's love is totally different from people's love.
For example, look at people's love. People's love, if it
exists at all, naturally focuses on those identified as most
like themselves, like their own children. In this way,
people's love is just like the natural affection shown by
any species to the offspring within that species. But
Christian fathers are supposed to know and show that God's
love is much more than that kind of "natural" love. God's
love is not confined to individuals God recognizes as like
Himself, but God's love extends to every person on earth
equally. That is the difference between God's love and
people's love. And Christians are supposed to understand
God's love because that is the kind of love that was re-
vealed in Jesus Christ and is supposed to be revealed in the
lives of the husbands and fathers of those who claim to
I am so ashamed.
God's love, the love of the Heavenly Father, is extend-
ed to every person, no matter how unlovable or unwanted, no
matter how deformed or unclean, no matter how weak or small.
That is the great mystery I, as a Christian father, am
supposed to help people understand by the way I carry out my
role as father.
So what do I do? I let myself grow up in a nation and
in a time where every day that passes I stand by and do
nothing meaningful in my role as father but moan and groan
and weep and wring my hands and write endless reams of
apparently helpless words as thousands of children created
by the Heavenly Father are slaughtered around me. I know
that I create confusion in the minds of young people when I
fail to do what a true father is supposed to do.
I am so ashamed.
In fact I am so ashamed that I complain to God the
Father about it. I ask Him why He lets these things contin-
ue, why I cannot overcome the things that cause me to be so
ashamed; why He will not give me the power, the resources,
to actually do the things that can be done that have the
power to stop the slaughter of His children around me. And
I get specific in my complaints to God. I ask Him why He
allows hundreds of millions of dollars to be poured into the
coffers of impotent men by people who claim to serve Him,
impotent men like Pat Robertson, and Charles Stanley and
Billy Graham and Chuck Colson, and...(with the exception of
Father John Earl, who is a father in deed, add the name of
every Christian leader you can think of beginning with your
local Pastor--who might not call himself father but is
supposed to be one just the same--all the way up to the Holy
Father in Rome who has, like myself, stood by and impotently
watched--watched as the Holy Father in Rome watched during
the Second World War--as a holocaust swept millions of
little babies into Satan's relentless and ravenous maw). I
complain to God about these things with tears and supplica-
tion and all I get in return, all I get as a way to stop the
horrible slaughter that is the source of my shame, is the

For the web site, at least, I am grateful, but I am
still so ashamed.
