Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the New York Times warns us that Husbands Are Deadlier Than Terrorists.
Husbands are incomparably more deadly in America than jihadist terrorists.
And husbands are so deadly in part because in America they have ready access to firearms, even when they have a history of violence. In other countries, brutish husbands put wives in hospitals; in America, they put them in graves.
Red Alert responds, pointing out that married women (and their children) are far safer than unmarried women are.
This constant drumbeat of contempt for men who play by the rules isn’t limited just to Carlos Slim’s blog. The message that married fathers are fools at best, and dangerous brutes at worst is the same message on offer from Christian leaders.
