No tolerance for abstinence
The federal Department of Health and Human Services has created a website promoting sexual abstinence as the healthiest choice for unmarried young people.
Frankly, I don't think Government has any business teaching young people about sex. That's the Family's job and Government will just screw it up.
Unfortunately, that's not the argument the ACLU and its pro-gay allies are making in their efforts to get the website shut down. No, they're mad because the website promoting abstinence doesn't go out of its way to tell kids how to have sex, and it seems to imply that homosexuality is wrong.
They're mad because the site contains factual information about why various contaceptives are not foolproof. After all, they say, abstinence "doesn't work" because teenagers can't resist sex. Thus, if we don't lie to them about the effectiveness of contraceptives, they won't even bother to use them at all.
Having read some of the "sexual health" curriculum these adults foist on children, I've concluded they're perverts masquerading as professionals. They hate the idea of abstinence because it implies humans (even adolescent humans) can control their appetites, and they don't want to control their appetites.
I hope this is a wake-up call to moral people who imagine they can reach a peaceful consensus on this issue. I hope it's a wake-up call to parents who imagine they can trust strangers with the hearts and minds of their children.
