Just one week after explaining that good Christian men can’t find wives because they unrealistically expect one who doesn’t already have another man’s children, Driscoll explained that women have no choice but to have children out of wedlock because there are no good men willing to marry them:
The latest statistics, 40 percent of all children are born out of wedlock. It is now at the point where women aren’t even pretending they’re gonna ever get married. They go to college, get a good job, get pregnant, have a kid. They’ve lost any hope of ever finding a guy who can actually carry the load, and that’s tragic. We’re a culture that is working hard to protect women and children, and no one has the common sense to beat on the guys who are the cause of so much of the pain.
Note: For those of you who are feeling Driscoll fatigue (as am I), I’ll warn you that I have another three posts in the works this week before I move on. Keep in mind however that what is most important is not what Driscoll says, but what he tells us about modern (conservative) Christian culture. As with Stanton, Rainey, the Kendrick brothers, etc, Driscoll knows what modern conservative Christians want to hear, and he delivers.
