You know what? If someone told me there was a church around here with a dude like this at the pulpit, I’d consider attending services again. I think abstinence-only education is unrealistic at best and negligent at worse (*cough-Bristol Palin-cough*. But I wholeheartedly support the notion that sex is best between committed long-term spouses/partners/etc, and that’s a very sensible idea to be passed along to young members of a congregation–even if the message is aimed at their parents.
Hear that, little baby? Don’t think just because Mommy and Daddy have tattoos and will talk to you about birth control means that we aren’t also trying to model real values and what love and commitment should look like. You don’t get off that easily.
