    First off freak (meaning that in a sexual way).

    Secondly, I think schools should encourage abstinence only sex, but realize that kids will be kids. Most of us will have sex before we are married and we should know the ways to protect ourselves. I had abstinence only sex ed and I only found out about stuff through hearing friends talk about actually having sex. Well that and the internet.

    I am certian that it can be proven that "abstinance" is not effective, but may work in the far future, 500 years from now.
    We must keep religion out of our schools. The human factor must be considered.

    I think schools should encourage a common sense approach and that includes both abstinence and BC.

    Personally I think we should, it doesn't provide our kids with a proper sex education, and doesn't prepare them for the real world. I also think that sex education should include information on LGBT issues, and I think that our schools should offer condoms to our students with no questions asked.

    I always thought the point of no return was doing it doggy style while dangling from a tightrope by your little toe over a pool full of saltwater crocodiles with dildos for teeth.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Abstinence hasn't been taught in UK sex education classes for a while. My own sex ed was more about love in primary, then pregnancy and then in secondary when I was a teen. Safe sex and diseases
    Europe is probably 20 years ahead of us in this field as well.
    But, IMO, as Christians constitute 5 to 50% of our population, their abstinence should be taught, of course, NOT as the only thing.

    That's why johnny can't read. the school is too busy trying to teach him all the **** his parents are supposed to that there is no time to teach him how to read, write, do basic math, etc.
    The children should recieve about 50% of their education from their parents.
    The problem is, not all children have parents.
    My idea is that the parents should be less greedy for material goods and spend more time with their "out-put". This means a more modest standard of living, less luxuries.

    I feel that "states rights" has merits.
    We have a huge nation, do you really expect South Carolina to be the equal of Massachusetts?
    They need time, these things cannot be forced.

    Most Liberals either don't know or choose to ignore Genesis 19. The Depravity of Sodom tha6 begins: "The two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and bowed down with his face to the ground. 2He said, ‘Please, my lords, turn aside to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you can rise early and go on your way.’ They said, ‘No; we will spend the night in the square.’ 3But he urged them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. 4But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house; 5and they called to Lot, ‘Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, so that we may know them."

    And so I skip ahead to: Genesis 24 "Then the Lord rained on Sodom and Gomorrah sulphur and fire from the Lord out of heaven; 25and he overthrew those cities, and all the Plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground."

    I don't condemn anyone nor do I hate them I hate the sins of man not the sinner.

    My intent is to show that Christians who believe in and follow the word will have a different view of what "is normal, and healthy human behavior."

    As far as teaching our children I believe that even when someone trys to tell the truth about sex they fail to tell the truth about what it means and actually feels like by somehow trying to frighten them away rather than being honest but also include the proper knowledge to protect them from the pit falls and dangers of unprotected sex and the danger of sex with people we don't really know anything about.

    The same is true when it comes to drug use. Children are lied to about the false dangers of pot and if they try it they are more likely to think Hell they lied to me about pot, did they lie to me about coke and heroin and that is what leads some to believe that pot is a gateway drug.

    It's not the pot, it's the lies we tell that lead to addiction. Trust me I know this to be a solid fact.

    I have never done any illegal drug past pot but I am imminently versed in what it is to be addicted to legal drugs legally obtained for real medical conditions.
    I've never heard of a single liberal, or person in general for that matter, that advocated and/or taught that we should rape anyone, male or female, especially if they believed the anyone was an angel of God. I would love to see proof that someone on here has ever advocated raping angels.
