The origin of Daughters Day is India. Though India’s intentions ‘might’ have been sincere, they were sincerely wrong.
This holiday was designed to promote the idea that daughters in India are equally the same as their sons. That is in direct contradiction to God’s Divine order of creation.
Perhaps that is why Americans were so quick to celebrate that narrative. Today, National Daughters Day has been proudly embraced and celebrated by egalitarian churches, the Me-Too movement, and Feminism.
I would never claim that our sons and daughters are equally the same.
Though we were all created in the image of God, and men are not better than women, we are very different. Including but not limited to, women being different in anthropology, biology, genetics, neurobiology, sexually, and sociologically. But more importantly, we are different Theologically.
Having said that. The two American holidays that are more aligned with God’s Law, are Father’s Day and Mother’s Day. “Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.” – Exodus 20:12
Regretfully, I’ve broken that Commandment. That is why I need God’s remedy for my sin, the Gospel.
Nonetheless, I refuse to be a part of America’s bisexual anthropology, and against God’s hierarchical creation, aka contra ordo creatus naturalis.
