Abolishing Abstinence

Two questions were posed in the article: First, "can we be good without God?" And, the answer was "'yes". And, the second was, "Can we keep our pants on?" And, the answer was "no".

First off, anybody can be 'good' without God. But, can they be 'chaste' without God?

"An abstinence-until-marriage program is not only irresponsible," U.S. Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., said last year. "It's really inhumane."

Barbara Lee either doesn't have children, OR she doesn't care one iota about morality! Abstinence until marriage isn't irresponsible; it's called being happy with yourself and your body - self-esteem! You don't have to listen to the 'crowd' for approval, or follow every Tom, Dick, and Harry, or Jane, Susie, and Betty that says 'sex is fine - go ahead and have fun'. When you know what you want out of life, sex doesn't have to play a roll in it until you are married to the person that you want for life. Being sexually active before marriage poses many problems! First off, you may get sexually-transmitted diseases. And, then, there is the problem of an unwanted pregnancy. Condoms do not prevent either one completely. Oh, the boys on the prowl will tell you all is okay, girls - but do NOT listen. It isn't so!

I believe if God is included in your early plans, you are unlikely to have sex at an early age. And, you are more apt to stay chaste until marriage. You have your minds on doing what God approves of rather than what the world approves. Those two are definitely not the same!

AMEN Barbara! What is that woman smoking? "Inhuman"? Is she absolutely out of her mind? Does she really mean "uncool"?

Our society is WAY too hung up on not making anyone feel "guilty" for their choices. We just keep pushing the moral line, it will come back to haunt us.

Haven't these "leaders" and "experts" realized there's no such thing as "safe sex" outside of abstinence. That's not even taking into account the moral issue behind it all. Abstinance not only keeps your health safer, it also keeps your mental and emotional and spiritual person "safer".

Can't keep our pants on - good heavens, isn't that the epitome of the "gimme" society we have today. And I'd like for them to define "being good". It seems to me the definition is whatever each individual feels good doing. Blech!

I often wonder, Blair, if people are teaching their children right from wrong anymore! It has become a 'feel good' world, and you're right. We will pay for it, or perhaps we already are! Sex today seems to be a 'play thing' or 'past time' for the HS kids! You see the young teenagers walking around with babies on their hips (real young!), and another young person walking beside them. It's as though the world is for them - they've not done anything wrong. Seems there is not an ounce of morality left in the world!

I pray my grandchildren have learned to 'keep their pants on' until marriage! Nothing gained when you lose it all in one night of loveless passion!
