March, 2005 ÌÎ_Ì´å DIVORCE WARS: What's really behind America's epidemic of family breakdown?
Of all the problems America faces today ÌÎ_Ì´å terrorism, crime, illegal immigration, out-of-control government and more ÌÎ_Ì´å no problem is as serious, or as misunderstood, as the nation's disastrously high rate of divorce and family breakdown.
This groundbreaking edition of Whistleblower ÌÎ_Ì´å titled "DIVORCE WARS: What's really behind America's epidemic of family breakdown?" ÌÎ_Ì´å is devoted, cover-to-cover, to a stunning journalistic exploration of marriage and divorce.
Whereas 40 years ago divorce was rare and families essentially remained intact, today divorce is almost expected, with one out of every two marriages disintegrating before our eyes. For Christians, the numbers are no better.
In this issue, Whistleblower delves into the world of divorce and shows with clarity and compassion exactly how and why America has become a land of broken families and hurt children.
From radical feminism to no-fault divorce laws, from the "sexual revolution" of the '60s to today's drive for same-sex marriage, this issue of Whistleblower ties together all of the factors that have caused the disintegration of the American family, and most importantly, points to real solutions ÌÎ_Ì´å both practical and inspiring.
"As tough a subject as divorce is, this issue of Whistleblower also offers great hope," said WND Managing Editor David Kupelian, "because when you really understand the problem clearly, answers become clear too."
Highlights of "DIVORCE WARS" include:
- "Divorce, American-style," a spine-straightening introduction to divorce by Joseph Farah.
- "Whatever happened to marriage?" in which Farah explores how divorce promises freedom and a new start, but delivers unhappiness.
- "Ending the divorce epidemic" by David Kupelian, a sweeping and insightful overview of marriage, chronicling how America unwittingly destroyed the institution of marriage ÌÎ_Ì´å and is now struggling desperately to reclaim it.
- "10-minute divorce: No-fault hits China," documenting how the world's most populous nation has made divorce so easy couples can get married in the morning and get divorced the same afternoon.
- "Reformers work to transform divorce laws" by Art Moore, documenting how "Covenant-marriage" and other approaches to preserving, rather than destroying, marriage are already working in several states.
- "Son of divorce" by Bob Just, a gripping and personal journey of discovery and healing for children of divorced parents.
- "Divorce as revolution" by Stephen Baskerville, Ph.D., a jaw-dropping look at how the explosion of broken homes is actually promoted by power-hungry government.
- "Looking for love" by Dr. Laura Schlessinger, in which the radio counselor and clinical psychologist gives an earful of advice to women on how to treat their husbands.
- "When women marry, Democrats lose" by Dennis Prager, who reveals the amazing fact that "the more people marry, and especially the more they have children after they marry, the more likely they are to hold conservative values and vote Republican."
- "America in 2054" by Eagle Scout and columnist Hans Zeiger. This college student ends our issue on a hopeful note, explaining that his "optimism is staked on the hope that young people are seeing the dangers we face and will spend our lives putting America back on the right track."
"'DIVORCE WARS' is powerful," said Farah. "It may very well help people save their marriages. It will help those who have divorced understand what went wrong and why. And for children of divorce, it will provide insight, comfort and inspiration."
