Does masculinity have any value in American culture today? Slate Magazine recently reported that many television programs this season promote weak, effeminate male characters.
One overlooked element in the rise of neutered twenty-somethings is their dedication to feline pets. It fits in with the larger push for male Americans to become “domestic divas” in their personal lives. Cable stations now encourage such people to beautify their homes on a 24-hour basis. Coupled with a revised interest in “pretty” clothing fashions, we are witnessing the broad emasculation of our nation. The brawny, hard heroes of generations ago had little time for designer lamps and “skinny jeans.” Disappointingly, today’s young men want to create lush, gentle private spaces in which they can wile away their afternoons crawling the internet and engaging in harmful physical activities.
For Christians, the question must be asked: How does one’s complete codependence on such a troubling animal glorify God
It should also be noted that in the Bible, neither Jesus nor Moses nor any of the Twelve Apostles ever owned a cat.
The cat is one of the most common offenders against the commandments of God and it is truly a sin for a Christian to own one.
