  4. 4. Divorced fathers, on average, do poorly in financiallysupporting & visiting children. The fathers of childrenborn out of wedlock are even worse… American mensee marriage and parenting as a package; when themarriage breaks up, parenting deteriorates as well.
  5. 5. Today the fashionable idea is "humanrights," or "civil rights." That is a verysuperficial idea actually. We are talkingabout Gods rights and human rightsequally…
  6. 6. …Human rights without God are worthless; Godsrights without man have nothing to do with the ideal.We have to initiate a movement which candemonstrate how we find our real dignity when we putourselves on an equal level with God. Gods rights areour rights.Father Moon, 13th Feb 1977
