Fathers: keep those girls at home
OAK BROOK, Illinois - The Advanced Training Institute International issued a statement strongly condemning the annual Take Your Daughter to Work Day, celebrated today by many working professionals.

"By taking their daughters to work, fathers are exposing their daughters to the dangerous temptations of independence and a paycheck," said Bill Gothard, founder of ATII. "Rather than serving at home under the father's authority, young ladies in places of employment today do not enjoy the protection God intended for them."

"In such a time as this when women have abandoned their rightful place at home, the world needs a higher standard," Gothard urged.

Vision Forum president Doug Philips joined Gothard in critcism of the Daughter Work Day, and laid the blame at the feet of President George W. Bush. "By allowing his daughters to join him on the campaign trail, the president set a poor example of Biblical patriarchy for the fathers of this country," he said.

He also let them go to college where they became sinful party girls. What an excellent example of the evils of letting your daughters out of the house.

Nice to see ole Dougie Boy allows freedom of expression concerning his narrow minded views, no comments allowed and no email address.

If it wasn't for women willing to be involved in WWII here and here he quite possibly could have been blogging in German right now.

Patriachism is very close, I feel, to instatutionalized slavery. For a nice prime example of how it devalues women just look at the ancient Greek and Roman empires. Women were treated as just slightly better then slaves.
Christ, Peter and Paul all taught that men and women were in a sense equal. There were differences sure, but that one was no less human, or had fewer rights before the Almighty God. Even in Genesis, Eve wasn't created to be a promoted slave, God woulda made her out of Adam's heel then.
Sorry, I'll get off my soapbox now.

Oh, and I guess it is better to have your daughters at headquarters where they can learn to work really hard for no paycheck!

Or they can learn how to be a hair designer where they can work on "friends, church members, fellow ATI grads and the elderly." As a unpaid ministy of course.

I can't believe that guys website (Doug Phillips). Ugh. Did anyone happen to notice the girl/boy catalogs? Why do the girls get the "pewter sewing kit" and "Elsie Dinsmore" (gag, gag) books , while the boys get the forensic science kits and the model rockets? Oh- that's right! Girls shouldn't ever hope to have a career outside the confines of their homes! Only home-based sewing businesses permitted. Silly me.

Hello everyone. I must say this is 'old news' as I have heard this from Gothard since I was a teen. I no longer fit that catagory but I have heard this many many times in training sessions and seminars. Beware the evil influence of the workforce and college.

I think Bill is right on on this point. I mean, it's common sense that a woman's place is in the home. This should be a protective environment set forth by the father where these females will be nurtured in the "admonition of the Lord." It's common sense if you think about it. In the work force they will be influenced for evil and will turn away from believing everything that their parents tell them. Who wil cook our meals or wash our "navy and whites?" And if they get involved in the work force, they will obviously lose all interest in child-rearing, the first and greatest commandment.
