The Destruction of the Family: American-Style

Carina Hoskisson Wytiaz guest posts on By Common Consent about how American families have been, and continue to be, destroyed.

I don’t know that Mormons view the problems of racism and poverty as being rooted in the destruction of family; we’re far more likely to blame people for their circumstances, to call out the symptoms and dole blame, instead of realizing these profound and entrenched issues are the result of what our prophets have said would happen to communities when families are destroyed.

    As a progressive Mormon, I agree that racism and poverty contribute to the destruction of the family. There are other factors as well that need to be considered, including the increasing rates of divorce, couples living together without marriage, young women becoming pregnant out of wedlock and keeping their babies–these occur among all income groups.
