Hey! Steven Curtis Chapman, They Aren’t Orphans

Please read here before commenting on the tragic death of Steven Curtis Chapman’s Daughter

And please note that this post was written months before the death of Steven Curtis Chapman’s daughter and has absolutely nothing to do with her. This post only concerns Mr. Chapman’s career decisions.

Check out this asswipe for Jesus..

Change For Orphans

I guess every child available for adoption is now an orphan according to this moron. Yep, every child available has no biological family, Jesus killed them all so Chapman could be a good guy.

Chapman had such a good experience with adoption that Jesus is killing off entire families so his fans can too experience the miracle of adoption. What a savior this guy is.

Seriously we all know that the vast majority of theses kids are not orphans in the traditional sense of the word, but it sure as hell makes folks feel good about themselves to think about them this way. They can conjure up images in their stupid little sheepy heads of Dicksenian waifs begging in the streets until Jesus (and a big injection of cash from Chapman) moves them to be saviors. All this without any pesky obviously Godless natural family to worry about. Meanwhile Chapman gets all kinds of good press. Hey it’s a win-win for everybody. Especially the grateful little orphans who not only get the chance to be raised by these self-centered, savior complex ridden, bad music listening, dips for Jesus, but might get the chance to promote super-savior Chapman’s career by appearing on stage.

What a fucking low-life this guy is, using available children, conveniently labeled orphan, to sell his latest album. What’s the matter Steven, did Jesus not get you the distribution deal that you needed to move product?

  1. I’m always a little scared when I see children obscurely referred to as “orphans” and people are talking about adoption as some kind of charity act, or viewing themselves as “saving” children.

    It dehumanizes the child. It takes away their families, their history, their roots. Even true orphans came from a family, a mother, a father. This kind of thinking just demands that they “forget” it all, be grateful, be happy, we brought you to Jesus!

    I don’t think Jesus is up there handing out referrals. Just sayin’.

  2. I think you’re probably right, Coco. Jesus isn’t handing out referrals.

    I have got some new information though, I guess they really are orphans, in a legal sense, if we were going by today’s laws when I was adopted, I’d be one too.

    I’ll bet you’ll never guess where I was given that info..

    Anyway, I’m trying to figure out how to get in on this money. I’m an orphan and Jesus loves me, right?

  3. $188,000 didn’t go to the orphans, it went to the paps, so that they could adopt! i can think of many ways that $188,000 could have been spent to REALLY help orphans compared to this shit. bleck!

  4. I’m with addie…where’s my orphan payout?! I didn’t see no age requirements on the website, and we’re all orphans in the eyes of the lord now, i guess…though my recollections of jesus are that he was an absolute political radical hippie freak who hung out with ne’er-do-well adoptee-types, women accused of being prostitutes due to their spiritual power, and, the word is, has some questionable parentage issues himself….all i know is that he’d be pissed about his name being used to justify the wholesale commidification of children…

  5. It is interesting that this clown is doing this “In a response to the miracle they saw in their own family through adoption”…

    Did he adopt a child? Apparently not. Does the child have to prove “orphan-ism” before the adoptive parent gets some loot? How is that going to work?

    If it weren’t so pathetically self promoting, it would be comical.

  6. My abro was adopted from an orphanage in Germany. Was he an orphan? No way. His legal guardians were his nmothers brothers who had to approve his adoption. Being a legal orphan and a true orphan are two different things.

  7. This really chaps-my-ass-man. Sorry, I know that was awful but I couldn’t resist.

    From the Shaohannah’s Hope website:

    “Whether it’s orphan care or adoption ministry, an important step is taking the time to assess your church needs as well as your resources as a church community…”

    What exactly is adoption ministry? And what do orphans have to do with the church’s needs?

  9. Dear Coco: some may see this as the living embodiment of the following Biblical phrase: “And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.” (Matt 23:9) While some might say, He is referring to the Title of Father (which translates to none other than “Pope”, BTW), He is really referring to BIOLOGY…. For His conception was Immaculate, i.e. without benefit of sperm or intercourse because Mary was a Virgin when she conceived– this is the first miracle of Jesus’s earthly life, of course….

    Read this verse in the context of Matt 10:37– “He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.” This is because (Matt 10:35) “For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.” In this sense being an ‘orphan’ is a good thing, because such a person is perhaps more apt to turn to his REAL father, God the Father (through Jesus, who is the only mediator between Man and God the Father, see 1 Timothy 2:5). Got all that?

  10. Hmm..Coco it seems that Jesus is really speaking to you. How do you rate that?

    You know ss, it’s going to take a little bit more than Sunday school bible drills to convince me that being a orphan is a good thing.

    I’d just as soon not see myself as a living embodiment of any biblical phrase. from my reading it never comes out for good. I don’t need to suffer to make you feel good about your faith. That’s pretty sick, if you think about it. Huh?

  11. As an adoptive mom of two beautiful daughters from China, one with special needs so she was a “waiting child,” I am saddened to see such hostility towards people who are only trying to give of themselves to bring a little love and security into the lives of children who, for whatever reason, do not have anyone to offer that to them as residents of an orphanage. I realize that in the US the term “orphan” is simply not correct in most cases. And technically even my daughters, who were abandoned by their biological parents at the age of 3 days and 3 weeks respectively – were not “true” orphans in that their biological families are (probably) still living. But the fact of the matter is that my daughters were never going to know those biological parents or know the love and joy of a family, had they not been adopted by someone. Why not me and my husband? Would it be better that they remain as “orphans” in a Chinese orphanage where they never had enough to eat and they were cold and alone? This is not just melodrama . . . . . we visited their orphanages and we know how their lives were.

    Our oldest daughter would hide food for the first year that she lived with us, because she was afraid that it would be a long time before she got any more. Even now, at the age of seven, she still is a bit concerned that there is enough food, even though we always reassure her that she will always have enough to eat. We were also told that our youngest daughter who has Cerebral Palsy (adopted at the age of 2 1/2) was not expected to survive the next winter in China because she could not walk, sit up, crawl, or even roll over by herself, and there just were not enough workers to provide individualized care. Tell me how it was so wrong of us to choose to invest our lives in these precious girls?

    Of course all of our friends and family thought we were crazy! We had already raised eight biological children (four each from previous marriages), and now we were going to spend the rest of our lives caring for two MORE children!!!! Well, perhaps we are crazy . . . . and perhaps the love and security that we have provided for two precious children is wrong in your opinion, but we know that we have done what is right for us. And I believe we have made a difference in the lives of these two beautiful girls, even if you cannot undestand.

    I would like to extend my hand and heart and ask for more dialogue on this topic. Because of course I care. Perhaps we could learn much from each other, if there is room for understanding and compassion.

    PS Love is love, whether Jesus is involved or not . . . . so debating who is “more” Christian does not really add to the discussion, I don’t think.

    • I have been looking into adoption for years. Where did u start? What were your first steps? And thank you for not being one of those with a closed mind and an empty heart, you are truly blessed.

  12. So empathizing your daughters neediness and calling them orphans is a good thing? Comparing martyrdom, especially in he name of your children is pretty cheap.

    If you had read more carefully you would have seen that the problem here is that the word orphan is being used to advertise both these children and Chapman’s album. As well as implying a direct connection to Christ.

    If you love your kids, you surely don’t want them to go through life without feeling some connection to their culture. Being seen as objects of pity, or as a living testament to your goodness. None of these things will help them grow into the people you surely want them to be. They in fact lessen them before they even begin.

    Don’t tell me about your heroism. Tell me about how your children have grown and progressed, how they are happy. From what you say, I wonder if this isn’t all about you.

  13. Nina,

    I don’t think anyone said that truly orphaned children who are languishing in underfunded and understaffed institutions are “better off” there than being adopted. As Addie noted, the issue is referring to children who are not true orphans, because they DO have living biological relatives (for the purposes of this discussion, I am referring to voluntary relinquishment of children for domestic infant adoption), and calling those children “orphans” in order to make adoption seem lifesaving and absolutely necessary IN EVERY CASE. It has become increasingly clear to me after much research and reading that a much larger percentage of unnecessary adoptions take place than 95% of adoption agencies or lawyers would like to admit, so this perpetuation of adoption as ALWAYS, 100%, absolutely being the saving grace of some poor child who would otherwise have suffocated in a dumpster is alarming to me.

    My other big issue is that, in this article, adoption is referred to as a ministry, an essential component of God’s plan, and I see it being used, all too often in many cases, as an excuse to further dismiss first parents. I’m not arguing about Christian belief systems or who’s “acting Christian” and who is “more Christian”. But I do take serious askance at being relegated to some womb-for-rent who delivered a baby to the “right” parents via the grace of God or whatever.

    Finally, in the final sequence of comments before yours, yes, Addie and I were poking a little fun at someone who saw fit to swoop in and give me a Bible lesson I did not need nor ask for. Perhaps it wasn’t the Christian thing to do, but I get tired of forever defending myself from people who smugly need to tell me how wrong I am.

    Look, you obviously love your girls, and that is great. I am encouraged that you asked for more dialogue, and I’d be happy to keep talking to you about adoption. Yes, even if you don’t agree with what I have to say.

    I don’t want to keep hijacking Addie’s blog, even though I know she would happily indulge me because she lurves me 😉 , so you can always e-mail me via my contact me page on my blog.

  14. What kind of shit site is this? Don’t bother writing to me because I’ll never visit this site again and wouldn’t want to associate with people who obviously have so much to learn about God and true love. All I can say is that I’ll pray for you and hope that God touches your hearts.

    You people argue about the semantic meaning of orphan while totally missing the obvious. That if you can love, help and walk with someone; for whatever initial motivation, who otherwise would’ve walked alone is to have done a good thing which will; hopefully, be blessed by God.

    I pray that God will touch your hearts and that you will learn to think less of yourselves and more of others. I pray that you will learn to love and fear the Lord and strive to do right in His eyes.

    Lord, Pls help them

  15. Addie – I am sad that my efforts to bring a different perspective to this discussion have been used by you to denigrate my life and my family. I openly shared the circumstances of our family as a means of attempting to reach out to you and have a dialogue. The information that I revealed has been taken by you and used to condemn me, simply because you do not agree with the choices that my husband and I have made.

    I am nobody’s hero . . . I am not a martyr . . . . I am simply a mother who loves her children. I am saddened that my daughters’ birth mothers were in a situation in which they had so few choices. But I can’t change the history of China . . . . but I can try my best to provide the love and security that my daughters were never going to receive in a Chinese orphanage. And if that seems, in your mind, a reason to condemn me, then I am truly sad for you.

    I wonder if you are a mother yet? One day you will realize that parenting has no prerequisites . . . . even when we are totally committed to our children and do the very best we can, we all make mistakes. I hope your children do not hate you because you are not perfect – because if and when you have children, you will make mistakes, too. But you are still worthy of dignity, respect, and love.

    I apologize that I attempted to engage you in conversation. I pray that you will not stay angry forever – but if you are always needing someone else to blame for your unhappiness, I’m afraid you will be angry and unhappy for a very long time.

  16. Mr. McCarthy:

    The irony of your post is amazing. You seem to have missed a few essential components of the religion you profess to know so much about yourself by posting such venom prior to an obviously insincere prayer request.

    Please don’t spend your time in prayer on me. I have my own faith and yes, my own struggles with it: I have never professed otherwise.

  17. I just love post modern Jesus cult outrage. It’s so short sighted. The very audacity that was defeated to bring modern Christianity to the fore front is becoming the norm.

    STEVEN CURTIS CHAPMANS DAUGHTER IS KILLED

    “Steven Curtis Chapman’s youngest child died Wednesday afternoon after being struck by a car driven by her teenage brother in the driveway of the family’s Williamson County home.

    Maria, one of the Christian singer’s six children, was taken by LifeFlight to Vanderbilt Hospital, which confirmed the death, according to Laura McPherson, a spokeswoman for the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

    The 5-year-old was hit by an SUV driven by her teenage brother, she said. Police did not give the driver’s name.

    The teen was driving a Toyota Land Cruiser down the driveway of the rural home at about 5:30 p.m. and several children were playing in the area, McPherson said. He did not see Maria in the driveway before the vehicle struck her, she said.

    “It appears to be a terrible accident,’’ McPherson said.

    No charges are expected, she said. The accident was witnessed by two other children; the entire family was home at the time, McPherson said.

    Singer/songwriter Chapman, who recently was inducted into Music City Walk of Fame, is one of contemporary Christian music’s most recognizable and most awarded names.

    He and his wife Mary Beth have long been supporters of international adoption, having brought three girls from China into their family. Maria was the youngest.
    The couple is so active in the cause that they formed an organization, Shaohannah’s Hope, to aid families wanting to adopt.

    With his latest music tour, which came through Nashville in November, Chapman started a campaign called “Change for Orphans”. He asked audience members at each stop to bring spare change to the concert, where it was counted and given to a local family to aid in their adoption process.

    “I don’t know of anybody who loves his children more than he does and is so committed to the adoption concept, and to lose one, no matter what the circumstances, is heartbreaking beyond all comprehension,” said John Styll, president of the Nashville-based Gospel Music Association.

    “He talks about his kids all the time. That’s his life. His kids are more important to him than music, that’s for sure.”

    The tragedy was announced during Wednesday-night services at Harpeth Hills Church of Christ, which the family attends. Maria had just graduated from the church preschool.

    And word spread throughout the tight-knit Christian music community on Wednesday evening.

    Styll got the news not long after Maria’s death.

    “I’m confident I can speak for everyone in the community to say we will do everything we can to support this family, as we would do at any time, but especially at a time like this,” he said.

    Most of the Chapman family was at Vanderbilt children’s hospital after the accident and could not be contacted. The long, gravel driveway leading to the home west of Franklin was blocked off by Williamson County sheriff’s deputies.
    ================
    Barring abundantly available grace–a lack of restraint on your part, Addie, could cost you more than it does anyone else. No, really.

  21. I agree.. I hope you are happy. You are sick and sadistic.
    Bless the family and that little girl and shame on you!!!

  22. Are you people seriously suggesting Addie’s post or her feelings had anything to do with this tragedy? Or that any of the commenters did? Or that she should somehow feel guilty about her feelings about someone’s stance on adoption because a terrible thing happened to them? Not once did the post comment unfavorably upon Mr. Chapman’s children or reference ill will toward his family.

    This child’s death was awful and tragic, but it has nothing to do with the original subject of the post(s). You’re the ones spewing anger and hate here. You’re also making connections that have no basis in logic.

    It is entirely possible to dislike someone and not to wish such ill upon them. Please learn to make that distinction.

  23. Please read here before making comments on my feelings about the tragic death of this child.

    https://addiepray.wordpress.com/

    This little girl’s death has not a thing to do with her father’s decision to promote adoption, not anything to do with what you people are prattling on about.

    One would think that a Christian would not use something as sad as the death of a child to attack someone on an unrelated issue.

  24. I just found out about the terrible tragedy and was somehow led to this site. I truly believe these adoption arguments have NOTHING to do with this poor child’s death.

    Despite that, this is truly one of the most disgusting sites I have ever seen. I commend Nina for her choice to adopt. Thank you so much for sharing that in light of the cruel hate speech that exists here. I don’t care whether the term “orphan” is misused. It does not matter when it comes to giving a child hope. A child that starves to near death in an orphanage and cannot even see his/her biological parents due to some bogus law might as well be an orphan. They are innocent, precious children of God, and they are suffering. I would rather uproot a child from a desperate situation (even if it means his/her culture) and love them with all my heart so that they may never have to feel such suffering again. You can waste your whole life arguing over what the terms “adoption” and “orphan” really mean. But in the end, when you die, how will that ever matter? It WON’T. But giving a child hope and love? Now that’s something to celebrate for eternity. I admire Steven Curtis Chapman. Who said he’s doing this to make money? Did you ever consider the opposite? I think he’s using his money to show God’s love and raise awareness. He’s using his passion, his talents, and his status for a good cause… something more people should consider.

    I’m sure if you had the slightest taste of what some of these children go through, you might change your mind. The majority of these posts are truly self centered. So take the terms “adoption” and “orphan” and throw them out of your mind. Instead, embrace the term “compassion.” Jesus showed compassion and instructs us to do so as well. I believe Jesus is truly proud of Steven Curtis Chapman.

  25. Why don’t you do your little attacks for Jesus somewhere else. It’s not exactly proper to make the kind of comments you have, mentioning both a deity and the father of a dead child right now. If you’d have the integrity to leave an email address, I would have told you this privately. I thought witnesses for Jesus were supposed to be proud and not hide.

  26. 1or·phan
    Pronunciation: \ˈȯr-fən\
    Function: noun
    Etymology: Middle English, from Late Latin orphanus, from Greek orphanos; akin to Old High German erbi inheritance, Latin orbus orphaned
    Date: 15th century
    1 : a child deprived by death of one or usually both parents
    2 : a young animal that has lost its mother
    3 : one deprived of some protection or advantage

    You are clueless and naive to think that the children of China are not orphans. Their government is not a democracy like ours. If you were spewing this garbage in China or something similar you might be imprisoned for it. Why do you judge another? I believe the Chapmans have been blessed beyond anything you could fathom and they don’t need to promote adoption to support the music or concert sales.

    I detect downright jealousy on your part to pass judgement on a family that has only the intentions of doing what they believe God has called them to do. For your lack of understanding I pity you. You are selfish and hateful to talk about people who you personally don’t know and cannot really understand their purposes for what they do.

    I would rather side on the error of adoption and taking care of the orphans than be a bitter hate filled person passing judgement on someone else. I see you lost your log and I found it….

    What they do is between them and God and he will judge whether it was done for the right motives.

    As for me I know of those who have benefitted from their ministry in music and adoption.

  27. And yet we have another one who wants to hide, but still preach. No email here either. Again, I would have addressed this privately.

    BTW, Jodie, if that is your name, if you were as interested in reading as you are pontificating, you’d notice that the definition argument has already been used in this very post.

    Reading is fundamental. But not for fundies, I guess.

  28. It is really sad when people are so heartless as to critisize someone who is trying to make life better for others. I am not only apalled by the horrible ignorant language used but, the anger in which it was presented. Surely you have something better to do with your time than curse at someone who is trying to build up and not tear down. Your reward is the bitterness you display. Why dont you try doing something more productive with your time than critisizing others. Get a life!!!!!!!!!

  29. Well, since you seem to have time to read it, I suppose I’ll keep writing it. Beside now you can go back to your little bible group and talk about your witnessing on the sly. I seem to be making you feel good about yourself with your superior ranting.

    BTW, you misspelled criticize, that’s truly ignorant.

    Did you go to Christian school?

  30. I’m sure wars will be fought, dear Addie, over your right to be called an “orphan” or “displaced” or whatever the heck you want to be called.
    By the way, to stop this stupidness, what is the PC term you want us all to use ? I will start a blog of my own and let others know. No I am not an adoptee, but I was homeless as a child, I guess I could start a blog about that, about how hard I had it as a child and some days we had nothing to eat. I guess I want to be called ” housing challenged” !

    Don’t assume that we have an agenda ourselves to “convert” you to “Christinanity” I think you already know the truth.

    PS. You mispelled several words in your blog about Steven Curtis Chapman. Did you pass 6th grade?

He or she has had too much already. you can’t talk to them or reason, they have one openion, they own and nothing else to do!!! bye bye

  33. I am an adoptee and was indeed an orphanage. Too bad you have to sit around and figure out someone elses life. You make me sick of your so called bullshit degree on what the difference is of an adoptee and an orphan. When it all comes down to it it really doesn’t matter. What matters is you have so much time on your hands to write about a family that has given hope to 3 children. What the hell have you down asshole?
    Get a life, look at yourself in the mirror…go feed the hungry or hey…adopt an orphan! Jerk off

  34. There is only one question remains. Talk – comments are cheep. What did you do to any of these or those children, whom had no family? Nothing?
    Bless the hearts of all who adopt a kid.

  35. stephani, (how cute, you spell it with an i)

    No, I wasn’t in an orphanage, I was in foster care. I legally didn’t have any parents for 3 years, by the definition you guys use, I was an orphan. But that just wasn’t true, was it? Both of my natural parents were still living then. I think I have some credibility in the discussion of the term.

    But you said you were an orphanage? Exactly how big are you? And where did they find a place to put you?

    What have I done? Let’s see, I’ve helped set up a large adoptee support group, and another that supports cross adoption plane communication, lobbied for adoptee rights legislation, helped many adoptees find their natural families, heck I’ve even given my support to groups that advocate ethical adoption. I support groups that help families stay unified within the US and internationally. I stay pretty busy with that kind of stuff.

    Sorry, not interested in adoption, more interested in improving the system through which it’s facilitated.

    karl,

    Read above. Yes talk is cheap.

    Addie,

    I am glad that you have done so many things to help “adoptees”. I am sorry that you were in Foster Care. It’s sad. I understand some of where you are coming from except when we were homeless my mother chose to keep us. Albeit, very hard on her part. We eventually worked our way through this. I choose not to wave that flag. I help the homeless in many ways. Could more be done? YES! I will do what I can and rally around those that put any effort to it. That is my agenda not everyones. For that reason I choose to be thankful for anyone who is willing to help them. Are motives always pure?NO, but thankfully they still donate time and money. I am not really in the position to judge anyones motives anyway. How can you? I can’t read someones mind or heart for that matter.

    Making fun of someones spelling is a totally different matter. IMO it just shows that you are a bit immature and that ,Addie , kind of minimalizes your effectiveness for your cause. I guess that this kind of rhetoric on your blog will only hurt you in the long run. If you are trying to help the cause of adoptees you need not exclude anyone. Since you are becoming more public on the web you need to be aware that others are continually watching and monitoring this.

    Just an observation.
    Regards,

  37. Addie,

    I am well aware this is not your first rodeo. I am not interested in what you think as in what is fact and what is fiction. The powers to be are not “internet” so to speak, do your homework and see who “police’s” such activity and the policies that proceed it ,ie; wordpress.

    I’m not here to attack you in any way shape or form. I am just trying to understand where you are coming from. What is a “permanent record”. Are you giving a school reference? Not sure on that one.

    Respectfully,
    D

  38. Addie,
    I did read your post. Interesting to say the least. You sound like a sad girl. I hope that you are seeing someone to help you work past, well, your past. I am not trying to be sarcastic as it shows a lack of respect. If I have been then I apologize. It is not productive to your cause and or mine.

    I am not going to engage in an online blog fight with you. You seem to have enough playground scuffles going on right now.

    You are a bright women and I hope that you will think before you speak and listen to what others say without sarcasm and rant. If you can’t do that, then where is the openmindedness you want the rest of the world to have. Also, if you want the world to see you as intellegent and having something to say that is worthy than correctly use their names or email “handles”. Misusing my name is somewhat childish and not at all what I would expect from a 37 year old lady who is trying to pass legislation for “adoptees”. It lacks professionalism and tact.

    Yes, I did click on your site. I admit that. I will also admit I really couldn’t follow. Please enlighten me more to what you have been through so that we can have a proper dialogue.

    What kind of courageousness are you talking about? Just curious.

  42. look.there is a season to live and a season to die. Do not go cussing out this person trying to help children. and Jesus isn’t killing people. that child is in his arms safe! Jesus died on the cros to save our sins.

  43. If you looked up the foundation, it does a lot of help for children going through hard times. Children, including orphans, but not just orphans. You don’t need to drag someone’s name through the mud because you have way too much time on your hands. Not enough time apparently because clearly you didn’t do your research. And you knew he just lost s child yet you post this terrible cluster of crud anyway. You should feel ashamed.
