One of the greatest and tragic events in world history is the demise of the family. The breakdown of morality, of traditional marriage and traditional families. Which have been the norm for millennia. There are many naysayers, many totally oblivious who don’t see and can’t hear — but what has occurred in the family, in marriage, in sexual immorality over the past 50 years or so NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE IN ALL OF WORLD HISTORY.
Capital letters aren’t used in anger. But in emphasis. Look, see, listen and hear!
What has occurred in the family, in marriage, in morality over the past 5 decades or so has never taken place in all of world history. Take a moment and let that FACT sink in.
And then know the consequences.
You can begin finding those in the Word of God.
When in all of world history there is a massive, revolutionary, never happened before event? It ought to be paid serious attention and seen, heard, and understood as to the how what and why.
And what will happen as a result.

ACP — A Crooked Path
Nearly 10% of British women don’t know who the father of their children is
There’ll be hell to pay for the Sexual Revolution’s destructive effects on the family

(LifeSiteNews) — In 1934, Oxford anthropologist J.D. Unwin published his mammoth magnum opus Sex and Culture, a study of 80 primitive tribes and six civilizations over five millennia. According to Unwin, these case studies prove that when cultures become wealthy, they correspondingly loosen their standards of sexual morality. As a result, societies lose their cohesion as well as their purpose and drive. In short, the success of a society is, according to Unwin, directly tied to the sexual restraint they exercise. Once this is lost, Unwin writes, the die is cast—the decline is irrevocable.
Keep in mind that Unwin produced this study prior to the Sexual Revolution that rocked the West and was thus not commenting on our current cultural circumstances. Now consider the results of a recent survey commissioned by Topp Morning Casino, released last month. 1,000 British mothers were surveyed, and the survey found that “7.8% admitted to lying over the biological lineage of their children.” In short, almost ten percent of mothers in the U.K. do not know who the father of their children is.
“We were shocked,” a spokesperson for the company stated on their website. “This means that there potentially 2.1 million couples in the UK where the father isn’t the biological one.” According to the New York Post, the 2014 Australian documentary series “Who’s Your Daddy?” stated that “up to 30% of paternities are misattributed,” while a 2005 American study “estimated that 4% of American fathers were raising a child that they did not know was not biologically their own.”
Consider these staggering stats in the context of an entire reproductive industry dedicated to creating fatherless or motherless children. In 2011, a ground-breaking film titled Anonymous Father’s Day was released, detailing the struggles of thousands of people seeking to discover their genetic origins. Conceived through artificial insemination with donor semen from sperm banks, the documentary traces the stories of men and women attempting to identify their biological fathers. It is based largely on a study on the subject called “My Daddy’s Name is Donor.”
In short, the Sexual Revolution has transformed the makeup of families in profoundly primal ways. Children are being born into a world where the ground is shifting beneath their feet.
It will never cease striking me as absurd that it has to be said, but it does: Sex makes babies. Babies are best served by growing up in a family headed by a father and a mother. The Sexual Revolution really was a revolution, premised on the insane idea that we could mess around however we like and still live in a peaceful, functioning society. Families are the building blocks of our civilization, and we have been tearing them apart for a half-century now from every side. As we are just beginning to see, there will be hell to pay for this.
In his massive study, Unwin essentially explains that once the fabric of a civilization has been shredded, it cannot be put back together. Once we have liberated ourselves from responsibility and each other, civilizations collapse as the bonds that tie us together are severed. We really are “in this together”—and when we fail to recognize that, the impact is on a civilizational scale. Because as G.K. Chesterton once wisely noted: “The most extraordinary thing in the world is an ordinary man and an ordinary woman and their ordinary children.”
