Rev. 18:1 And after these things, (the vial of wrath against the paganism of sexual exploitations of men which culminates in the ancient ritual and oath taking of Matrimony with No Fault Divorce), I saw, (of the seven), another angel come down, (another vision), from heaven (that dream like state of self absorbed contemplation), having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.

Rev. 18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great, (the economic system, paganized by sexual promscuity), is fallen (in that she is revealed), is fallen (and exposed), and is become (clearly perceived sociologically), the habitation of (she)-devils, and the hold of every foul (prostituting) spirit, and a cage of every unclean (relationship) and hateful (homosexual) bird.

Rev. 18:3 For all nations (throughout time immemorial) have drunk of the wine (and roses) of the wrath (to follow) of (the paganized sexual promiscuity), her fornication (and her seductions), and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her (in the name of economic complicity), and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance (of products and services required to accommodate the desires) of her delicacies.

Rev. 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her (this pagan institution, the whoredom of sexual immorality), my (Christian) people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues (of litigious divorces, homo-sexual deviance, single parenting, sex-lessness in her marriages, and adulteries, with 1.5 million annual abortions prior matrimony, her sins of adolescence, STD, gay marriage, and her use of sexual favors for stepping stones of social and economic exploitation).

Rev. 18:5 For her sins (since the days of Noah) have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

Rev. 18:6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double, according to her works: in the (golden sacramental) cup (of religion's blessings) which she hath filled fill to her double.

It's Official: The Experiment Has Failed

For the best part of thirty years we have been conducting a vast experiment with the family, and now the results are in: the decline of the two-parent, married-couple family has resulted in poverty, ill-health, educational failure, unhappiness, anti-social behaviour, isolation and social exclusion for thousands of women, men and children.

From Experiments in Living: The Fatherless Family
By Rebecca O'Neill; Sept. 2002, CIVITAS


[Technical Analysis Paper No. 42 - U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services - Office of Income Security Policy]

  • 40% of mothers reported that they had interfered with the fathers visitation to punish their ex-spouse.

["Frequency of Visitation" by Sanford Braver, American Journal of Orthopsychiatry]

  • 50% of mothers see no value in the fathers continued contact with his children.

["Surviving the Breakup" by Joan Berlin Kelly]

  • 90.2% of fathers with joint custody pay the support due.
  • 79.1% of fathers with visitation privileges pay the support due.
  • 44.5% of fathers with no visitation pay the support due.
  • 37.9% of fathers are denied any visitation.
  • 66% of all support not paid by non-custodial fathers is due to the inability to pay.

[1988 Census "Child Support and Alimony: 1989 Series" P-60, No. 173 p.6-7, and "U.S. General Accounting Office Report" GAO/HRD-92-39FS January 1992]

[U. S. D.H.H.S. Bureau of the Census]

  • 90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes.
  • 85% of all children that exhibit behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes.

[Center for Disease Control]

  • 80% of rapists motivated with displaced anger come from fatherless homes.

[Criminal Justice and Behavior, Vol. 14 p. 403-26]

  • 71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes.

[National Principals Association Report on the State of High Schools]

  • 70% of juveniles in state operated institutions come from fatherless homes

[U.S. Dept. of Justice, Special Report, Sept., 1988]

  • 85% of all youths sitting in prisons grew up in a fatherless home.

[Fulton County Georgia Jail Populations and Texas Dept. of Corrections, 1992]

  • Nearly 2 of every 5 children in America do not live with their fathers.

[US News and World Report, February 27, 1995, p.39]

There are:

  • 11,268,000 total custodial mothers
  • 2,907,000 total custodial fathers

[Current Populations Reports, US Bureau of the Census, Series P-20, No. 458, 1991]

What does this mean?  Children from fatherless homes are:

  • 4.6 times more likely to commit suicide,
  • 6.6 times to become teenaged mothers (if they are girls, of course),
  • 24.3 times more likely to run away,
  • 15.3 times more likely to have behavioral disorders,
  • 6.3 times more likely to be in a state-operated institutions,
  • 10.8 times more likely to commit rape,
  • 6.6 times more likely to drop out of school,
  • 15.3 times more likely to end up in prison while a teenager.

(The calculation of the relative risks shown in the preceding list is based on 27% of children being in the care of single mothers.)

and — compared to children who are in the care of two biological, married parents — children who are in the care of single mothers are:

  • 33 times more likely to be seriously abused (so that they will require medical attention), and
  • 73 times more likely to be killed.
