The NFL appears to have a huge problem with players committing acts of domestic abuse. In recent weeks three NFL players found themselves at the center of controversy for abusing women in their lives. The most notable is Ray Rice, who was seen on video knocking his wife unconscious on an elevator. On the heels of this story is an account of Jonathan Dwyer of the Arizona Cardinals accused of head butting his wife and breaking her nose after she refused his sexual advances. Then there is Greg Hardy, “The Kraken”, of the Carolina Panthers. In July, Greg Hardy was found guilty of assaulting his former girlfriend and threatening to kill her.
These were the most notable abusive acts by NFL players against women recently. There is another NFL player that has made the news for an abusive act. However, in this case it wasn’t against a woman.
Adrian Peterson, of the Minnesota Vikings, is accused of going too far in disciplining his four year old son. It is said that Peterson used a “switch” in disciplining his son and left bruises on the child.
ESPN writer Kate Fagan weighed in during an interview and called on the NFL to invest millions of dollars to address the issue of domestic violence and abuse. She even conveyed that we need to reprogram how we raise men.
What are your thoughts on domestic violence? Do you think it’s gotten worse over the years? What can be done to resolve this social ill? Does the Holy Bible offer a solution?

Getting out of a domestic violence situation takes courage,,,oh BOY, is that an understatement! Just gathering up the courage to think of leaving takes courage. Domestic violence is a poison that continues to radiate throughout its victims' lives long after the physical danger or abuse has been eliminated. Mental, emotional, physical and spiritual damage are dominant in the process, but even more disturbing is the roles that outside forces designed to help the recovery/restoration rocess play in causing further damage of stagation to the healing. Tonight, the long uphill battle of life after domestic violence: the various mindset barriers, the dead ends, the failures of society, and the continued need for proper change are put on the table. Join us at 10:30 PM ET by calling 347-327-9967.

As domestic and sexual abuse awareness grow, the common statement "Why didn't they just leave," still gets mentioned. Matthew Eaton will join the show today and talk about the 13 insidious rules of sexual abuse survivors. Many times we associate abuse with some form of physical abuse. However, the emotional abuse that goes along with the physical abuse can be more harmful, than the bruises. The bruises go away, but the emotional torment can take a long time to go away. Mathew will also share his story, and how he has survived. He now writes and blogs about sexual abuse, and is an advocate to raise awareness.
