He says it has all the makings of a Hollywood movie. The only problem is that there are too many people that think it’s a prequel documentary about the end times, while the rest of us know it was just some big, hallucinogenic metaphor for the madness that was happening back then.
Well, Pagels says it wasn’t hallucinogenic. But whatever. How can’t it be?
Anyway, the best part of the article is the art coupled with it.
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.
CNN is getting batted down … hard … for screwing up the news about SCOTUS and Obamacare.
On that note, we’re listening to coverage of the events on the radio. Yes, it’s NPR, but Tina yelled out, “This is something your parents would be for right? I mean, religiously, it just makes sense.”
“NOPE!” I said. “Merely on political principal, mom and dad oppose affordable healthcare for the US population … just like Jesus would want. All hail capitalism and not helping people like the parable of the good Samaritan.”
