A Catholic website this week encouraged its readers not to allow their daughters to go to college, because any young woman would be near sin and would "not learn to be a wife and mother," the Raw Story website reports today (September 13, 2013).
In a Sunday article on the "Fix the Family" website, Raylan Alleman explains that young women "will attract the wrong types of men" at college: "those lazy men who are looking for a mother-figure in a wife are very attracted to this responsible, organized, smart woman who has it all together." He asserts that daughters should "learn to be a wife and mother" instead of pursuing higher education.
"The bottom line, HE is only supplementing HER income, but he's supposed to be the provider," he writes. "What she did that was looked upon to be the responsible thing 'just in case' ends up being a self-fulfilling prophecy because of the type of man she married."
"Is a degree worth the loss of your daughter's purity, dignity, and soul?" he asks. "A woman is naturally very observant of a man's faults as long as she is in a platonic relationship with him. Once she becomes sexually active with him, she releases hormones that mask his faults, and she remains in a dreamy state about him. We can see why God would arrange things in such a way so that when in a proper state of holy matrimony, she would be less sensitive to his faults and thereby less tempted to be critical of him."
