(LifeSiteNews) — It is more important for mothers and wives to be at home raising the next generation than to be in Washington, D.C. debating legislation – and conservatives should acknowledge this reality.
The kind of intense working hours that go with holding political office are simply not compatible with the full-time job of caring for kids. The message of the conservative movement cannot be that it is a virtuous goal to have moms away from their children.
The most recent midterm elections saw 32 female candidates backed by Elise Stefanik, the number 3 ranking Republican in the U.S. House, run for office. And Stefanik actually saw motherhood as a “compelling message” and a reason to back the candidates.
“Stefanik also emphasized that many of the candidates she is backing are mothers,” a New York Times profile piece reported. “I think that’s a very compelling message to voters,” Stefanik told The Times. The New York congresswoman noted “that one congressional candidate in Ohio, Madison Gesiotto Gilbert, gave birth just days ago.”
Had Gilbert won, she would have started her new job in January, when her baby was just four months old.
The goals of the conservative movement should not include actively recruiting mothers to run for office. There is nothing more worthy in a woman’s life than being a wife and a mother, save for those who choose to enter a religious order.
Conservativism is not just taking someone who holds conservative views and putting her into a position of power. It is of course possible that conservative women elected to influential positions can do an incredible amount of good. I’m phenomenally pleased, for example, that Justice Barrett voted to reverse Roe v. Wade, but as I’ve previously written, she did not need to be on the Supreme Court to be a success.
A large childcare chain in the United States just fired a faithful Christian caretaker for refusing to read LGBT propaganda to children.
As reported on LifeSiteNews, Bright Horizons Children’s Center in California terminated the contract of Nelli Parisenkova for not reading LGBT-themed books to children as young as 1 year-old.
Parisenkova, a devout Christian who worked for the company for four years, requested to not read the books because they violated her deeply held religious beliefs.
Instead of tolerating Nelli’s Christian faith, Bright Horizons demanded she 'celebrate diversity' or leave. After refusing to comply with this unjust ultimatum, Parisenkova’s boss expelled her from the building, which forced her to walk 20 minutes in 96-degree heat to the bus stop where she had to wait another 45 minutes.
Parisenkova is now suing Bright Horizons Children’s Center for violating her religious freedom, and she needs your help to raise public awareness about this assault on her human rights.
Sign this petition today to tell Nelli Parisenkova that you stand with her and her Christian faith against the LGBT agenda being pushed by Bright Horizon’s Children’s Center.
Bright Horizons thinks it can bully devout Christians like Nelli into submitting to their leftist ideology. Do not let them get away with it! We all must take a stand to ensure these attacks on our shared Christian faith come to an end. Here are the plain and simple facts:
- No child should be brainwashed to believe that marriage is between two men or two women.
- No child should be told that boys can become girls, or that girls can become boys.
- No child should be indoctrinated with the erroneous belief there are more than two genders, or that people can choose their gender identity.
This is not education. This is propaganda.
Nelli Parisenkova was RIGHT to protect children from LGBT indoctrination and she was RIGHT to invoke her Christian faith in doing so.
SIGN THIS PETITION NOW to tell her she is not alone in this fight!
Conservatives rightly worry about the demise of the nuclear family, attempts by teachers to indoctrinate their kids into the LGBT agenda and the promotion and funding of abortion. But that doesn’t mean that we should be pouring money and time into getting young women, especially moms, elected to political office. It is not logical to be against the breakdown of the family and also want women to be separated from their husbands and kids.
That is not to say there is not a role for women in politics.
Think of all the great moms who organized and spoke at school board meetings against COVID policies and inappropriate curriculum and school library books.
In their communities, in their roles as mothers, these wonderful women helped protect their kids from being exposed to indoctrination and scandal. Would they have even learned about what was going on in their schools if they were in D.C. instead?
Furthermore, if we want a civil society built on natural law and run by virtuous people, we need moms to do what they do best – raise the next generation.
All the legislation in the world cannot do nearly as much as individual families protecting the sanctity of marriage and family by raising virtuous kids and husband and wife serving in their proper roles.
