Stool Repair 101: A Commentary on the State of the Pillars of Family
By Jim Tonkowich, Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation
In the beginning, God created a three-legged stool: marriage, sex, and children. The beauty of three-legged stools including God’s is that they’re solid and hard to tip over regardless of the uneven ground on which they stand. Observe the simplicity, wisdom, and stability of God’s stool!

Study: Too Much Screen Time Linked to Psychological Difficulties, even for Physically Active Kids
By Thaddeus M. Baklinski
BRISTOL, UK – A new study conducted at the University of Bristol has found that too much TV and computer screen time is bad for children, regardless of how much physical activity they get. Previous research has shown that too much screen time has an adverse effect on children’s mental well-being, but whether the lack of physical exercise and long periods of sitting still significantly contributed to this was not clear.

Research Underscores Importance of Marriage, Family Structure
Research from the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows the importance of marriage, family structure and faith. Dr. Pat Fagan, senior fellow and director of Family Research Council’s Marriage and Religion Research Institute and Dr. Paul Sullins, associate professor of sociology at The Catholic University of America, explored the findings of the government-funded National Survey of Family Growth.
It is sickening to read about the teen suicides below and the persecution they faced. The article reports that a couple of hte parents are suing the school for not addressing the abuse and bullying. The schools have a responsibility in this area, but every time I read an article like this, I ask, “What on earth were the parents doing?” It is enraging to consider these parents who wallowed in the slave mentality of perceived choicelessness and kept sending their children into this world of misery and abuse. It’s the height of arrogance that parents would be suing the schools.
