Bill O’Reilly, Jennifer Aniston and the great fatherhood debacle

Jennifer Aniston and Bill O'ReillyRight off the top, I have to admit I’m not a member of Team Aniston. She dilly-dallied with my loyalty during that whole Brad-Pitt-and-Angelina-Jolie affair drama ‘way back when’…but I got over it.

Artistically and altruistically, Ange does cast a heck of a long shadow – one Jen simply can’t compete with, on or off the big screen.

But when it comes to Bill O’Reilly and his recent rant on The O’Reilley Factor taking her to task for her assertion that “women don’t need men to start a family or be good mothers,”  as she promotes her latest movie, “The Switch” about a single woman who decides to become a mother through artificial insemination, he does make an important point.

As quoted by, O’ Reilly said:

Jennifer Aniston can hire a battery of people to help her. But she can’t hire a dad. Dads bring a psychology to children that in this society is under emphasized. Men get hosed all day long in the parental arena.”

You and I and everybody else out there with half a clue knows he’s right.  But – and this is what’s most important – when it comes to society in general these days, both Jen and Bill are doing more than simply publicizing their own points of view on the subject.  They’re also causing the rest of us to raise our level of consciousness and think good and hard about the importance of having fathers in the lives of our children.

And that’s a very good thing.

Such productive outcomes from conflicts and clashes in terms of thought and opinion I find are often perceived in the cards when I’m conducting Personal Prophesy readings.  It leads toward a whole new level of understanding in the end.

The cards will often reveal all sorts of controversy and conflict when it comes to universal subjects; for instance, motherhood without a father involved.

We can either just go “Duh” and have no clue as the message sails right over our heads.  Or we can go for the ‘take away’ in situations like this that erupt into differences of thought and opinion, offering us a whole new level of insight.

And this is a new level of insight, considering that all those men out there who are tired of being thought of as mere “sperm donors” can leap into the fray now and shout, “Yeah, we’re tired of just being sperm donors!” or “Yeah, stop being bitches and let us father our children!” or as Jen maintains, “Women are realizing more and more that you don’t have to settle, they don’t have to fiddle with a man to have that child.”  And those men can heave a big sigh of relief.

And if the latter is the most accurate, perhaps we’ll evolve toward the point where men who don’t want to be responsible for a child they’ve unintentionally fathered, won’t have to be.  Men can simply offer up their semen and freely walk away.

As for the cards?  I’m not seeing that will ultimately be the case. The more we move toward the future, my perception is that men will strive even harder to be intensely involved with their offspring.

In the meantime, Jen and Bill are doing something tremendous for society with this clash of opinion between them.

The publicity forces the rest of us to sit up and take notice, realizing what’s important and how we can make life better for our children by having fathers in their lives.
