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.
