One of my favorite lines from The Godfather comes after Vito Corleone scolds his blubbering godson, Johnny Fontane, and tells him to “ACT LIKE A MAN!”:
I absolutely love The Godfather and I finally got around to reading the book. The above quote is written a little differently in the book and I think I like it better:
It was rare that Don Corleone showed exasperation. “I didn’t tell you to get married again. Do what you want. It’s good you wish to be a father to your children. A man who is not a father to his children can never be a real man.”
Real men are pro-life! Just as abortion is opposed the nurturing nature of women, it also goes against the duty of men to protect the weak and vulnerable – especially when it comes to their own children.
