I don't go to church for one.
Well, based on what you must have heard in or about church, I don't blame you. Like I said, find another church.
Kids get told over and over not to have sex, and all it does is get a lot of kids more interested in it.
Do they not also get told not to steal and lie? You guys having a teen screwing lying, stealing epidemic in your hometown,are you?
And when they're taught at the same time that birth control is evil..well..they get pregnant.
They don't get pregnant because they don't take birth control. They get pregnant because they screw. (Man, you got things all screwed up.)
And yes, I do believe that condoms are 95% effective in preventing pregnancy when they are used correctly. I've never gotten any one pregnant,
that you know of
and i've used well over 100 of them.
They are not 100% effective against STD's either, dude. I have some numbers that would make your weenie shrink.
And you don't seem to get the point about the abstinence issue..yes, abstinence is the most effective way to prevent pregnancy..
That IS the point.
but SOME KIDS WILL WILL HAVE SEX NO MATTER HOW MUCH THEY'RE TOLD NOT TO.
YES, I KNOW! BUT WHY SHOULD I HAVE TO PAY FOR THEIR INDESCRETION? AND WHY ARE WE YELLING?
So why not teach them how to protect themselves when they do
You mean by NOT teaching abstinence only?
It's not Christian like?
No, it's quite Christian like. You have even said so yourself. But it is NOT Christ like.
All the more reason to do it in my opinion.
And everybody knows about opinions.
As for your tax dollars supporting free clinics..well..our government wastes your tax dollars on a lot worse things.
And in your book, more wrongs make a right?
