Black Lives Matter: We Will Destroy the Nuclear Family

On the "Guiding Principles" page of its website, the Black Lives Matter movement makes the stunning statement that it stands in opposition to the traditional—biblical—"nuclear family."

Under the tab "Black Villages," it makes the following statement:

We are committed to disrupting the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and "villages" that collectively care for one another, and especially "our" children to the degree that mothers, parents and children are comfortable.

The notion of "collective parenting" is not new. In fact, it predates then-MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry's infamous April 2013 comment that "our children are not ours." It promotes the unbiblical notion that fathers aren't necessary for the healthy development of children, replacing them with government programs.

The National Center for Fatherhood says the statistics prove otherwise. Fatherless families are four times more likely to live in poverty, the children face a "dramatically greater risk of drug and alcohol abuse," and they are twice as likely to commit suicide.

"More than 20 million children live in a home without the physical presence of a father. Millions more have dads who are physically present, but emotionally absent," the NCF states on its website. "If it were classified as a disease, fatherlessness would be an epidemic worthy of attention as a national emergency.

"The impact of fatherlessness can be seen in our homes, schools, hospitals and prisons ... In short, fatherlessness is associated with almost every societal ill facing our country's children."
