This is a spoof from the back cover of Salvo Magazine.  It goes along with an article in the magazine and online by S.T. Karnick called “Girly Men:  The Media’s Attack on Masculinity“.  Listen to the conclusion of the article:

“Thus, the war against boys seems to have created three main character patterns for the adult male of our time: sensitive guys who want to please women; weenies and dorks who want only to be left alone to drink beer and play video games with their dork buddies; and thugs who, in rebellion against their unnatural education, are perpetually concerned with proving their toughness through increasingly loutish behavior. There are, of course, examples of decent, positively masculine males in the culture, but they are becoming increasingly overwhelmed by the products of educational and cultural feminization.

The fact is that people learn what you teach them. And the consequences of the war against boys—and the broader social war against masculinity in general—are increasingly evident in both the culture and the world at large. We should hardly be surprised that the results are anything but pretty.”

Mike,

I have been recently exposed to Sovereign Grace Ministries and just finished “Living the Christ Centered Life” audio book. I’d like to get a feel for the community at Cornerstone since I am considering relocating to the area and need a Church Home/family. I’d appreciate someone contacting me via email so I can begin the dialogue. biswell2000@gmail.com—276-479-1905.

Thanks,
Randy
