Focus on the Family’s focus motor is broken, probably unfixable

Check out this awesomely thought out section of a statement from Focus on the Family about the correlations between wildfires and abstinence only education in an

article titled “Dig Deeper: Same Wisdom Applied to Sexual Risk Avoidance as Wildfires”:

Certain questions arise: Why aren’t our schools, our states and our nation placing a clear and unquestionable priority on sexual risk avoidance (SRA)? Why are we intentionally spending billions of dollars handing kids matches (condoms), which result in careless (sexual) “fires” and treating victims who have been unnecessarily burned by sex (STDs, pregnancy)? Wouldn’t prevention be cheaper and healthier? “Safe” sex education – or promoting casual sex, while handing out condoms and birth control to kids – is analogous to passing out matches to kids in school, and telling them, “Be sure you play safely with these in the forest and, above all, have fun!”

I hear the original draft of the above was written in crayon.

When idiots want to control the sexuality of kids, they write pathetic drivel like that.

And where are the same activists when it comes to faithful, sexual habits in adults? Focus on the Family doesn’t care about the family. It’s completely unfocused on methods of teaching that work.

I will forever condemn and hate the abstinence-only education that the leadership of my past gave me. And by leadership, I mean myopic assholes.

Sure. Don’t give two kids a hotel room and a batch of condoms and say, “Here’s a porn for you to figure it out.”

But for Christsakes, give kids some education.

The entirety of all cultures and the animal kingdom is based on sex. Sex. An act that is requisite for life to continue. The thing old idiots with nothing better to do call sex “dirty”. Do they not remember that sex is one of the most amazing ways to spend 30 minutes. Or in my case two.

But that’s not the point.

The point is Focus on the Family are jackasses without an ounce of understanding about the world and how to help kids understand sexuality. Avoidance is the Christian way, and it’s about goddamn time they figured that out.

Besides, you would think that if the almighty god of the universe really gave a shit about abstinence only education, he’d do something more direct and powerful than a goddamn forest fire to flex his mighty muscles.

Focus on the Family is the punchline to their own joke.

  1. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.
