These days dating is literally at your finger tips. You can swipe right in the morning and find yourself going out for dinner and a movie that night. One Illinois father, however, decided to interject himself into his daughter’s love life.
Stephen Stewart took an ad out in the Employment section of Christianity Today magazine. “Her: godly, gorgeous, athletic, educated, careered, humorous, travelled, bilingual, 26-year-old virgin,” the ad said. “You: unworthy, though becoming less so daily.”
The dad also listed his daughter’s blog, Breaking The Silence so potential suitors could find out more about her.
Rachel Stewart was apparently unaware of her father’s bizarre deed until several people brought it to her attention within the comments section of the blog.
“At least it’s appropriate they placed it in the Employment Opportunities section because putting up with this father-in-law’s shenanigans is a full time job, without any paid vacation,” said Rachel in a since-deleted post about the situation.
In a previous blog, Rachel shared that instead of being a typically overprotective father that didn’t want his daughters to date, Stephen would, “promote our beauty to strangers, notifying boys of our availability and convincing parents of our guaranteed familial contributions.”
In a recent blog post entitled “Son-In-Law’ the single virgin said she’s not “angry or embarrassed” by her father, she just hopes his next step isn’t to plaster her need for a man on a billboard.
Following the virality of the ad, Christianity Today has since released an apology.
“We want everything in our magazine to reflect beautiful orthodoxy, and this ad did not,” the editor in chief, Mark Galli, wrote. “We have taken a hard look at our ad review process, made some changes, and we can assure our readers that no ad like this will appear again.”
