    I find that kind of thinking rather silly and defeatist. It's like saying "well, teenagers are going to join gangs, do drugs and shoot each other anyway, therefore..." It's absurd. I'd rather teenagers be raised properly in the first place to be responsible and understand the consequences of their decisions, something that's lacking in this country at the moment.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    That, pretty much.


    Once upon a time I was against the idea. Fact is though, if they're gonna do it (some will and some won't), condom availability will rarely be the deciding issue, and better safe than sorry.

    Of course, neither condoms nor any other birth control is 100%... but the odds are a lot better with than without.

    If teenagers are going to be given free condoms because they are "just going to do it anyway", then I want free beer.

    What was that old beatnik refrain? "Free love, free beer, and no work!"

    Can I get free rubbers too? Do you know how many thousands of dollars I've had to spend on safe sex? Day-um...

    Pimpin' ain't easy.

    Oh, I think they've gone beyond classic birth control.

    When my daughters were in HS back around 2000, it was common knowledge (according to them) that anal sex was the new 'birth control'.

    True story.

    Re: Should teenagers be given free condoms?

    I can see by the poll tally...the world has digressed from 2013 back to 1013 thinking. Sex still mystifies people.

    How about this: Sexual intercouse is outlawed except for reproduction.

    Then put cameras in every room of everybody's home and camera implants in everybody's belly button. And since the NSA can process 1 billion phone calls a day, it won't have any problem keeping up with everybody's sexual encounters.

    PS....oral sex is allowed. Wait, never mind, Michael Douglas might take exception to that since he got throat cancer from oral sex. So he might be elected as the oral sex advisor to the newly created Sex Patrol Agency.

    We should pass a law. That'll do it.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    No, it only encourages sexual behavior and passes on a message that such behavior is acceptable. Not only that, but someone's sexual irresponsibility is not my responsibility to pay for.
