« Bryan Fischer, off the deep end | Main | Debbie Holmes: kickoff event/energy policy »

June 25, 2008


Mmmmm, I wonder what the social police will have to say about THIS!

Sara, you have egregiously broken the one-line headline policy here at RSR, but you did it with such overkill and panache that I'm letting is slide. xoxoxo

I'll also apologize on Debbie Holmes' behalf for stomping on your post. This is her designated day to blog here at RSR, and she has an event just a few short hours from now!

I left this comment over at Chris' site which you can see if you click my name. I was also concerned on how the thought police will twist this to their own nefarious ends.

"Almost all the reporting on this fails to specify that these are abstinence ONLY programs. There was some small lip service paid in the Statesman article but it quickly went back to identifying it as an abstinence program, which is highly misleading. It implies that providers of social services are against teaching abstinence when that just isn't true. Prepare for the Village Idiot to take full advantage of that fact when he addresses it."


Good call, Sis.

My daughter recently completed the Our Whole Lives sexuality curriculum offered through the Unitarian Universalist Association and the United Church of Christ. It's offered every other year at the Boise UU Fellowship. Click my name for an article about OWL.

OWL presents abstinence as the best option for teens, but it doesn't stop there. Teens leave OWL with a sane, realistic, and holistic view of sexuality.

In fact, I'd be willing to bet that girls who go through OWL and similarly comprehensive sex ed programs are a lot less likely to have abortions than those who hear an abstinence ONLY message.

I say good for Idaho.
