“Just Call Me Dad: The Dilemma of Being a Father in the United States” from Christian Faith Publishing author Al McCarthy investigates the formation of the welfare state and the Biblical references that identify man’s role in child rearing. Al McCarthy then demonstrates how the prevailing anti-social activities of America’s anti-family, anti-dad culture fosters an economy of police, courts, and prisons, which further disfranchises the disenfranchised and further enriches the affluent.

“Just Call Me Dad: The Dilemma of Being a Father in the United States”: a look at the erroneous view that men are incapable of raising children, women can rear children without men, and the federal government can raise children better than parents. “Just Call Me Dad: The Dilemma of Being a Father in the United States” is the creation of published author, Al McCarthy. Alfred Lamont McCarthy was born in Newport News, Virginia on the fourth of March in 1957. His father, an army veteran who was awarded the Bronze Star in the Korean War, was a mechanic employed at the Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company. After returning home from work one day and learning about the deliberate poisoning of a young homeless child living near the family home in the Lincoln Park housing complex, Alfred Sr. and his wife Catherine moved young Alfred and his sister Cornelia to a one-family house in nearby Hampton. Alfred joined the US Army in 1976. He was deployed to Honduras in 1988 and Iraq during Desert Shield/Storm in 1991. He retired from the military in 1996. He now resides in Anchorage, Alaska. Al has associate degrees in Law Enforcement and General Studies from Central Texas College. He is currently pursuing his Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from Wayland Baptist College with specializations in Occupational Education and Business Management.

“Honor thy father and thy mother is directly commanded from God and is the first commandment with a promise of longevity and prosperity on the earth. The father is mentioned first in this commandment and I believe the father being placed here is no accident, oversight, or random placement selection.” --Al McCarthy

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Al McCarthy’s new book demonstrates the need for men to serve as the heads of their families.

The concept of men controlling families, referred to in countless examples in the Bibles of the world, was the basis of the family unit in the US until the forces of society began to shatter these Biblical examples in favor of an unfounded political correctness that sought to control segments of the population. From 1900 to the 1950s, the working poor, through the male-dominated unions, solidified family units and guided young men and women toward success. The disenfranchised family’s march toward the American Dream came, however, to a screeching halt with the democratic idea of controlling the minority, poor, and inner-city vote with the creation of the 1960s welfare state.

The welfare programs destroyed the self-will and independence of a targeted population. It made it easy for that exhausted segment, which had just fought a battle for civil rights, to adopt a dependent lifestyle that fractured the minority family and sought to allegedly empower women by erroneously claiming they could raise children alone as long as they had government help. Women unnecessarily shouldered the tasks of being a single parent while attempting to satisfy the new social norms of alleged independence. Without the solid guidance of a responsible man, dispirited young men fell deep into despair. Young teenage girls, who needed a loving and supportive masculine image to help them form the template of future relationships, found that they could not relate to nor respect men as they needed to be respected.
