The Domestice Violence Industry

Dr. Mohler interviewed Dr. Stephen Baskerville tonight on his radio program. Dr. Baskerville is a Professor of Political Science at Patrick Henry College and a Fellow of the Howard Center for Family, Religion and Society. If you have read much of anything on divorce, the bias against fathers in the "family" court system or fatherhood in the last few years, you are probably familiar with his work.

Baskerville documents the intrusion of the court system, via no-fault (read: unilateral) divorce into families and the effect of legally enforced separation of fathers from their children and the home. As Jennifer Roback-Morse points out in her endorsement of Baskerville's second book, the effect of this system is to obliterate the distinction between public and private.

During the program, Mohler and Baskerville also discussed the documentation and admissions in law review articles that attorneys who recognize and publicly admit that false claims of domestic violence and child abuse are encouraged by the system have been disbarred - and judges have been removed from the bench for speaking out on these abuses of the system.

Listen to the program, visit Dr. Baskerville's website for fee articles and information about the book, Taken into Custody.
